Beautiful work from Kay Starr – a set that's still got that remarkable vocal style in place, but which also comes across with a more mature sound too – a mode that's never too emotive, but which is full of feeling – and really makes great use of that classic Starr twang! The arrangements are lush, but never overdone – and have the gentle sadness of the rain shower pictured on the cover of the album – gently washing Kay's vocals on tunes that include "Gonna Get A Guy", "You Always Hurt The One You Love", "Only Forever", "When I Lost You", "Into Each Life Some Rain Must Fall", and "A Faded Summer Love".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Smilin' Memories
EMI/Universal (Japan), 1975. New Copy
A sunny 70s set from Erik Tagg – a record that's halfway between blue-eyed soul and the warmer territory of singers like Kenny Rankin or Michael Franks! Like both of those artists, Erik Tagg's certainly got something of an ear for jazz, and chooses some great elements in the backdrops for ... CD

Where Am I Going
Philips (Japan), 1967. New Copy
One of the greatest of all Dusty Springfield albums – a gem of a record that mixes British pop, soul, and some very groovy orchestrations! The whole session has that kind of soaring, soulful bounce that Dusty had on her best records – but which was possibly never done nearly as well as ... CD

Sings For Her
Atlantic (Japan), 1964. New Copy
The only album we've ever seen from vocalist Austin Cromer – a deep-voiced jazz singer with a style that's somewhere in the best space between Billy Eckstine and Arthur Prysock! Cromer's a lot more relaxed and less posturing than either of those bigger names – and he's got a great ... CD

Touch Of Tabasco – Plus!
RCA/Bear Family (Germany), 1959. New Copy
A surprisingly great little Latin set from Rosemary Clooney – one that makes us want to forgive her for all her pop takes on the genre in the early 50s! Backings here are by Perez Prado, who really brings a nice degree of "zing" to the session – kicking things up with that ... CD

Bethlehem, 1957. New Copy
A classic set of early jazz recordings by Nina Simone – one of her first albums ever, but already with an approach that's quite different from other singers of the time! Nina's singing a fair bit of standards here, but she brings a deeply personal approach to the material – inflecting ... CD

Dusty In Memphis
Atlantic, 1968. New Copy
A landmark album for Dusty Springfield – one in which she more than proves her soul music talents, by taking a trip to Memphis, and recording in a sweet Atlantic soul mode! The album's handled by stellar talents all the way through – arrangements by Tom Dowd and Arif Mardin, production ... CD

Bethlehem/Solid (Japan), 1958. New Copy
One of the few albums ever issued by vocalist Frank Minion – an ultra-hip singer that we'd rank right up there as one of our favorites ever! Although the cover bears a 1970 date, the album was recorded in the late 50s – and date reference is a great indication of the forward-thinking ... CD

Moody Marilyn Moore
Bethlehem/Solid (Japan), 1957. New Copy
A rare and exceptional vocal jazz LP – cut by the obscure Marilyn Moore, then the wife of Al Cohn – who's pictured in profile on the cover of the record! Marilyn's got a style that's somewhat raspy – clearly inspired by Billie Holiday at times, and not what you'd expect in ... CD
