Fantastically sweet pop from Chris Montez! Chris had a light little voice that was perfect for the A&M Records approach of the 60s – a style that has him singing gently over arrangements that glide and bounce around with ease, sometimes handled by Herb Alpert, in a breezy sunny LA mode that makes us want to be driving down Highway 101 with the top down, AM radio blasting out all of Chris' early singles at once! Chris' real genius here is the way that he takes standards and pop tunes – and, working with Herb, crafts them into a whole new sound – stripped down, streamlined, and perfect for the 60s! Titles include "One Note Samba", "The More I See You", "Fly Me To The Moon", "The Shadow Of Your Smile", "Call Me", "Hey Baby", and "Little White Lies". Also includes a whole bonus mono version of the album too! (SHMCD pressing.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Liberty (Japan), 1960. New Copy
A much more solidly American album than some of Vicki Benet's other efforts of the time – which were usually more French-styled than this one! This time around, Vicki's got a great breathy style that's right up there with Julie London on Liberty – a late 50s sexiness that perfectly ... CD

Reprise (Japan), 1964. New Copy
A great later date from Dinah Shore – one that pays tribute to her initial rise to fame on the Lower Basin Street show – but which actually comes across much more in a groovy 60s style overall! Jack Elliott handles the arrangements, and he brings in a punched-up sort of rhythm that ... CD
