CD ... Around December 3, 2014
A fantastic album by this obscure vocalist – one of the first in a great run of work recorded by Sue Raney on the west coast scene! This session has Sue sounding a fair bit like Chris Connor or June Christy – often a bit icy, and sometimes sweet – but without some of the fuller ... CD (Vocalists)

CD ... Around November 19, 2014
Fantastically sweet pop from Chris Montez!

CD ... Around November 19, 2014
Dreamy pop from one of the greatest groups on A&M!

The Lennon Sisters get groovy – as you might guess from the "Today" title, and from the set of cool 60s covers they perform on the set!

Man, we gotta ask – why don't they make records like this anymore?

One of Chris Connor's most obscure albums from the 60s – and one of her nicest too! The record's got a less polished feel than some of Connor's work for Atlantic or ABC – recorded live at the Village Gate, and divided up into "late" and "early" shows that both have ... CD (Vocalists)

Bethlehem, 1958. New Copy
CD ... Around September 30, 2014
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!

Two's Company (Japanese paper sleeve edition)
Roulette/Warner (Japan), Early 60s. New Copy
CD ... Around October 1, 2014
Despite any prejudice you might have against Maynard Ferguson, he actually does a damn good job backing up Chris Connor's lovely voice on this record – probably because his band is super-hip, and includes players like Jaki Byard, Joe Farrell, and Rufus Jones.

CD ... Around October 22, 2014
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!

Between Heaven & Hell
Columbia/T-Bird (UK), 1962. New Copy
CD ... Around July 7, 2014 (delayed)
Great early work from Oscar Brown Jr – a hip mix of jazz and soul, working in Brown's unique sense of showmanship, and his almost beat-like flair with a lyric! Ralph Burns and Quincy Jones handled the arrangements – and the album's filled with great original tracks. Nice jazzy groove ... CD (Vocalists)

LP ... Spring 2014
A wonderful record from Carmen Lundy – filled with original compositions, and recorded with a really solid jazz-based backing! The set's a great reminder of why Lundy is one of our favorite jazz singers ever – one of the few who continue to hold true to their original promise over the ... LP, Vinyl record album (Vocalists)

A really great little album from Georgie Fame – one that has moving past the swinging Mose Allison-inspired jazz vocal mode of earlier records, into a groovier style that picks up a range of different sounds! Georgie kicks off the album with his version of the ever-popular late 60s "Ball ... LP, Vinyl record album (Vocalists)

Welcome Matt Dennis
Jubilee/EMI (Japan), Late 50s. New Copy
CD ... Around June 25, 2013 (delayed)
A lesser-known set from vocalist Matt Dennis – not as well-remembered as his 50s dates for RCA and Kapp, but still pretty darn great nonetheless! Matt's working here with full backings from Sy Oliver – in a set that showcases his talents more as a singer than a songwriter – but ... CD (Vocalists)

Flying Dutchman/BGP (UK), Early 70s. New Copy
LP ... Around September 29, 2014
One of the rarest Gil Scott-Heron albums! The record is a wonderful example of Gil's work in two different styles – sweet mellow jazzy soul, and harder heavier protest poetry. Side one features classic jazzy tracks recorded with Brian Jackson – like "Free Will", "The ... LP, Vinyl record album (Soul)

One of the greatest Christmas albums of the 20th century – a rich tapestry of sadness and longing from Ol' Blue Eyes himself!

A classic album from Etta – recorded at Muscle Shoals, with deep soul backing that's different than that used on many of her Chicago-recorded albums of the 60s! Etta's back in hard-belting R&B-tinged territory here – a bit more sophisticated than the 50s, with a good mix of hard ... LP, Vinyl record album (Soul)

Always-great solo work from Mama Cass – an unbridled batch of pop tunes with a sweet and dreamy finish! The album's got a really wild approach – a sound that's even more baroque at times than that of The Mamas & The Papas, arranged and conducted by the great Jimmie Haskell. Titles ... CD (Rock)

A&M (Japan), 1965. New Copy
CD ... Around November 19, 2014
A pivotal 60s album in the shift from folk-rock to Sunshine Pop – and a standout gem from the early years of A&M Records! We Five are a group with a really groovy feel – a warm blend of male harmonies and one female voice – all in a style that, a few years earlier, might have ... CD (Rock)

Quite possibly the greatest moment ever for Burt Bacharach – and that's saying a heck of a lot, considering the greatness of all of his work! The record's a slightly-overlooked gem from Burt's 70s years – a record that steps off the compressed sophistication of his best 60s work for ... CD (Now Sound)

Reach Out
A&M (Japan), 1967. New Copy
CD ... Around November 19, 2014
Fantastic! We love Burt Bacharach in so many ways that it's easy to forget the genius of these early A&M sides – but going back to them is always a treat, and it's wonderful to hear the way that Burt lays down his own work when given the chance! You know the tracks – "House ... CD (Now Sound)

Fantastic work by maestro Burt Bacharach – subtle genius, and an album that offers more to us every time we listen to it! Burt's work has been recorded by many – but few ever gave it the kind of treatment that he did – as you'll hear in this brilliant array of sweeping strings, ... CD (Now Sound)

Easily the greatest album ever from Love Generation – a heavenly bit of harmony pop that we'd easily trade for any of our favorites by The Association! The group are always great on all of their records – but on this incredibly sweet set, they really hit a new level – letting ... CD (Rock)

Vampi Soul (Spain), Early 70s. New Copy
LP ... Mid-September, 2014
Very groovy work from this Columbian duo – two female singers who work with some surprisingly cool arrangements that are often a mix of Sunshine Pop and subtle funk – a bit like Sergio Mendes & Brasil 66 at their best! Arranger Jimmy Salcedo handled the backings, and they've got ... LP, Vinyl record album (Latin)
