House Safe For Tigers

CD


4.80 38

The soundtrack to A House Safe For Tigers – which is one of the movies Lee made with director Torbjörn Axelman for Swedish television in the 70s – and it's a great one, right up there with Cowboy In Sweden! Honestly, this might even top the better-known Cowboy In Sweden – which is all the more stunning, given that this one's been nearly impossible to find since 1975. We're Lee devotees, to say the least, and we wouldn't say that if we didn't mean it! The sounds range from laidback, hipster cowboy funk – of the kind that Lee himself pioneered and personified – to some fairly sweeping orchestrations and more specifically soundtrack-y bits, with narration and a choir. Best of all, Lee is singing as well as he ever did during this decade. An obscure masterpiece from one of our favorite figures! Titles include "Soul's Island", "A House Safe For Tigers", "Our Little Boy Blue", "Sand Hill Anna And The Russian", The Nights" and more. This great Light In The Attic version is remastered from the original tapes, has new liner notes and previously unseen photos.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

This Is My Love
Columbia (Japan), 1975. New Copy
One of the most sad-eyed covers we've ever seen from Japanese singer Kimiko Kasai – but a sweet little record that's one of her most soulful sessions of the 70s! The set's done in collaboration with the great Bobby Scott – who also plays some excellent Fender Rhodes on the record, and ... CD

Kimiko Is Here
Columbia (Japan), 1974. New Copy
A great set from Japanese vocalist Kimiko Kasai – recorded live with spare backing by the Cedar Walton trio, in a mode that's quite different than her better-known 70s electric set with Herbie Hancock! If anything, Kimiko's sound here is more dynamic than the Herbie session – as the ... CD

Windy
Verve (Japan), 1967. New Copy
One of the hardest to find Astrud Gilberto records on Verve – and one of the best! Deodato, Don Sebesky, and Pat Williams did the arrangements – and the sound here is a bit different than some of the straighter Gilberto sets of the time – still very bossa-inspired, but also in a ... CD

A pair of great soundtracks from the legendary Michel Legrand – including a huge amount of never-heard work from The Picasso Summer! First up, though, is Summer Of 42 – one of Michel Legrand's greatest moments of the 70s – a sweetly romantic score that lasted a lot longer than ... CD
