✨✧ VariousLove Hit Me – Decca Beat Girls 1962 to 1970 ... CD
Ace (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The British scene of the 60s was filled with some tremendous work from a huge range of female artists – not just the bigger international names, like Lulu or Petula Clark, but also a host of even cooler, even groovier gals – like the artists collected on this set! There's a special sound to UK girl pop of the time – often a strong influence from soul music, which makes for some excellent rhythms throughout – that mod love of American R&B, moved into some even hipper territory during the beat years that span most of this collection. And amongst British labels, Decca was maybe the one with its ear most to the ground – able to pick up some great overlooked talents and get them onto singles, even if they never cut a full album – with a continued legacy of tracks that could even cross over to the Northern Soul scene at times. This package serves up a stunning array of these Decca label gems – with titles that include "Hey Boy" by Barry St John, "Little Boy" by Goldie & The Gingerbreads, "Poor Old Johnny" by Twinkle, "Love Hit Me" by The Orchids, "I'm In Love With You" by Billie Davis, "No No No" by Dana Gillespie, "That's Right Baby" by Marianne Faithful, "Where The Good Times Are" by Beverley, "Something Beautiful" by Adrienne Poster, "I Wanna Go Back There Again" by Truly Smith, "I'll Come Running Over" by Lulu, and "I Stand Accused Of Loving You" by The Satin Bells. 24 tracks in all.

Alan PriceTwice The Price – The Decca Recordings (Price To Pay/Price On His Head/singles) (3CD set) ... CD
Decca/Edsel (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 3CD ... $18.99
Fantastic sounds from Alan Price – a singer who first got his start in The Animals, but quickly burst forth as a solo act on his own – working in an equally great mix of jazz, blues, and soul! Price is a hell of a talent – and one that was never as strongly recognized on our shores – and like his contemporary Georgie Fame, he also is a crack pianist and organ player – both instruments he uses strongly to accompany the gritty grooves on this set. And in fact, if you like Georgie Fame's 60s recordings, you'll find a lot here to love too – no surprise that the two artists later teamed up together – and the package features both of Alan's albums for Decca, plus a whopping 19 more singles that may well represent the best of the bunch – all tracks that didn't appear on the albums. 44 tracks in all – with titles that include "Love Story", "Tappy Tortoise", "Never Be Sick On A Sunday", "Any Day Now", "Tickle Me", "Who Cares", "The Time Has Come", "The Trimdon Grange Explosion", "Come & Dance With Me", "So Long Dad", "Don't Do That Again", "The House That Jack Built", "Goin Down Slow", and "Move On Drifter".

Cuff LinksTracy (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Decca/Poker (UK), 1969. New Copy ... $11.99
A beautiful bit of late 60s pop – featuring a harmony group who can really sing – a group who really hit big with the famous cover tune of the set, but who really sound wonderful throughout! The album was masterminded by the team of Paul Vance and Lee Pockriss – who wrote most of the tunes, and also arranged and produced – and the whole thing's got a no-filler feel that's really great, with loads of original tunes that really pull out the best of the group's great vocal sound. There's a definite Sunshine Pop quality to the record, but the vocals also hearken back to an even better-crafted era of pop – and the whole thing kicks off with the hit single "Tracy", then rolls into gems like "Where Did You Go", "All The Young Women", "When Julie Comes Around", "Lay A Little Love On Me", and "Early In The Morning". CD also features 6 bonus tracks that include "Run Sally Run", "Wake Up Judy", "The Kiss", "Thank You Pretty Baby", and "Robin's World". CD

KhanSpace Shanty ... CD
Decca/Deram (Japan), 1972. Used ... $6.99
A British jazz rock masterpiece – and one of the first albums to feature guitar work by a young Steve Hillage! Khan marks a reunion between Hillage and Dave Stewart – after the former had been away at University for a few years, and the latter had been jamming on keyboards with the seminal group Egg. In a way, Khan's sound is kind of a redirection of the heavy cosmic jamming of Egg – one that strips down the sound nicely, pushes things along with a lot more guitar, and gives the tracks a nice grounding in vocals from Hillage and bassist Nick Greenwood. The guitar work alone is a strong part of the set – but Stewart's keyboards are equally enticing, and include organ, piano, and "skyceleste"! Titles include "Space Shanty", "Hollow Stone", "Stargazers", "Driving To Amsterdam", and "Stranded". CD

John Mayall's Blues BreakersCrusade ... CD
London/Decca, 1967. Used ... $9.99
John Mayall's on a new crusade here – hitting lines that are almost more truly blusey than his previous albums – thanks to a new lineup in the Blues Breakers combo! Alongside Mayall's lead on vocals, organ, harmonica, and bottleneck guitar – the group also features Mick Taylor on guitar, John McVie on bass, Keep Hartley on drums, Chris Mercer on tenor, and Rip Kant on baritone sax – the latter two of whom help keep the set from being a straight Chicago electric blues copy. Titles include "I Can't Quit You Baby", "Streamline", "Snowy Wood", "Man Of Stone", "Stand Back Baby", and "My Time After A While". CD

Small FacesFrom The Beginning ... LP
Decca (UK), 1967. Near Mint- ... $11.99
Early brilliance from The Small Faces – a set that perfectly sums up all the aspects that set them apart from their peers on the British scene of the 60s! Sure, there's the requisite mod touches in the music's influence from American R&B and garage – but there's also a winningly unique vibe in the way the whole thing comes together – almost a touch of nascent psych, yet used in very economical ways – to perfectly fuel Steve Marriott's lead vocals, and send them soaring where few others might dare to go at the time! There's a cohesion and focus of vision that grabs us right from the start – and holds strongly, even when the group are handling other folks' songs too. Titles include "Runaway", "My Mind's Eye", "That Man", "Hey Girl", "All Or Nothing", "Plum Nellie", "You Really Got A Hold On Me", and "My Way Of Giving". LP, Vinyl record album

Thin LizzyVagabonds Of The Western World (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Decca/Universal (Netherlands), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 24.98
Maybe the first true moment of greatness from Thin Lizzy – a record that really has them coming into their own, with a sharpness that really points the way at their later classics – and that unique approach that has Phil Lynott standing out as one of the most unique singers of his generation! There's still a bit of a bluesy undercurrent at the start, but as the album comes together some really tremendous songs emerge – tuneful yet rocking, and with a surprising undercurrent of soul as well. Titles include the classic "The Rocker", the great "Mama Nature Said", and "The Hero And The Madman", "Vagabond Of The Western World", and "A Song For While I'm Away". LP, Vinyl record album

Unit 4 + 2Concrete & Clay – The Complete Recordings ... CD
Decca/RPM (UK), Mid 60s. Used 2CD ... $11.99
The complete recordings of Concrete & Clay – a British group of the 60s, but one that had a slightly different sound than some of their contemporaries! The initial years of the sextet has the group harmonizing in these warm ways that are a bit like some of the folk-revival groups in the American scene of the early 60s – especially given the way the voices take center stage above some often-light instrumentation. Yet as the group move on, they also pick up a bit more beat group elements – a bigger beat at the bottom, and more bite in their instrumentation – which is when they really seem to take off, and find a very special place to craft their amazing vocals! The approach is almost a combination of Sunshine Pop and Brit Invasion modes – served up here on a 43 track set that features all of the group's recordings from 1964 through 1969. Titles include "Concrete & Clay", "500 Miles", "Rainy Day", "Baby Never Say Goodbye", "I've Seen The Light", "I Was Playing Games", "So You Want To Be A Blues Player", "3.30", "Face In My Head", "Wild Is The Wind", "Woman From Liberia", "Sorrow & Pain", "Hark", and "I Won't Let You Down".

WhoMagic Bus ... LP
Decca, 1968. Very Good ... $24.99
The Who may look like they're tripping things out a bit with the cover and title to this one – clearly a nod to the Magical Mystery Tour-era Beatles – but the groove here is tight, right, and pretty darn mod all the way through – very much in the spirit of the group's earlier albums on Decca! The tracks are all short, and still feature strong influences from soul and R&B – but they also show a great talent for sneaking in spookier bits or more complicated parts too – odd musical elements that might have their roots in older R&B, but which here are turned towards a more mature expression of the group's earlier idiom – really pointing the way towards some of their more ambitious projects in coming years! Titles include "Magic Bus", "Doctor Doctor", "Someone's Coming", "Our Love Was Is", "Call Me Lightning", "Pictures Of Lily", "Bucket T", "Run Run Run", and "Disguises". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ WhoTommy ... LP
Decca, 1970. Near Mint- 2LP Trifold ... $16.99
An amazing moment from The Who – and from the UK rock scene in general – as Tommy is one of the most fully-conceived concept albums ever recorded – a masterful effort that's still pretty hard to match all these many years later! Pete Townshend really knocked it out of the park with this one – and pushed the group way way past the simpler songs the were recording just a year before – into this deeply introspective territory, spun out both in the album's words and music. The Tommy tale's been well told many times over the years – so we won't bother with the full narrative – but just let us say that it's hard to go wrong with this one, an essential item in any collection of adventurous rock – classic or otherwise. Titles include "The Acid Queen", "It's A Boy", "Sally Simpson", "Miracle Cure", "Pinball Wizard", "Do You Think It's Alright", "Cousin Kevin", "Christmas", "Tommy's Holiday Camp", "I'm Free", and "We're Not Gonna Take It".

Decca, 1965. Very Good ... $39.99
The first full-length set from The Who – a blistering batch of rough-edged tunes that run the gamut from bluesy soul to sweeter pop to guitar-driven grinders that show an incredible amount of power – even at this early point! The album's somewhat all over the map, but in a good way – in that it already displays the rich talent the group had for many styles of music – that hard-to-peg quality that made The Who so undeniably Who-like over the years. Titles include the classics "The Kids Are Alright" and "My Generation" – plus "Instant Party", "A Legal Matter", "Out In The Street", "The Good's Gone", "La La La Lies", and "It's Not True".

✨✧ Jon-MarkSally Free & Easy ... CD
Decca/RPM (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Ear-opening work from Jon-Mark – best known as half of the Mark-Almond band with Johnny Almond, but here working as a solo act on his own – in a spare folksy mode that's right up there with some of the best on the Brit folk scene of the 60s! Jon's guitar playing alone is worth the price of admission – at a level that rivals that of Bert Jansch, John Renbourn, or some of the others of the new generation that have gotten more fame over the decades – and he's also a hell of a singer, with a voice that's at once ancient and youthful, maybe more tuned towards some older themes than Dylan politics, but also with a grooviness that echoes a bit of Donovan too. Apart from two tracks here that were issued as a single, all the other material has never been released – making the whole thing a huge discovery, finally given its due. Titles include "Blues For Hobbits", "Paris Bells", "Sally Free & Easy", "Portland Town", "The Vulture", "Love From Afar", "Gotta Make The Future Bright", "The First Time", "Black Girl", "North Country Fair", and "Once I Loved A Girl".

✨✧ Los BravosBlack Is Black – The Anthology 1966 to 1969 ... CD
RPM (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $14.99
The biggest collection of work we've ever seen from Los Bravos – a group who broke big around the world with the famous title hit, but who also had a heck of a lot more to offer, too! Los Bravos hail from Spain, but they quickly were picked up and produced by the British arm of Decca – which gives their music a cool mix of modes – part of the punch of 60s Britpop, but also dosed with maybe a bit more sense of drama inherited from their Spanish, roots – with a blend that's quite unique, especially as the set moves on! There's a whopping 60 tracks in all – way more than we'd ever heard by Los Bravos – and most lyrics are in English, with an increasingly groovy vibe as the set moves on – almost the same kind of west coast world as The Monkees in their best Boyce & Hart mode, but with some bouncy Brill Building currents too. The booklet is overflowing with notes on the group – and titles include "Black Is Black", "Show Me", "I've Been Hearing Things", "Deeper Roots", "She's My Girl", "Dime Donde Estoy", "If I Were A River", "Live Girl", "Individuality", "Dirty Street", "Two People In Me", "Como Superman", "Make It Last", "Baby Believe Me", "I Don't Care", "Recopilacion", "Trapped", "I Want A Name", "She Believes In Me", "Come When I Call", and "You'll Never Get The Chance Again".

RPM (UK), Late 50s/1960s/Early 70s. New Copy 3CD ... $16.99
A huge look at British pop singer Mark Wynter – an artist who's always been remembered for different projects here and there, but who's never fully gotten coverage like this! Wynter's a heck of a talent – one who never broke on these shores, but who gave the UK an early blue-eyed pop rocker at the end of the 50s, who then matured into a more adult singer as the 60s went on – moving through a shifting array of styles with effortless ease! A number of tracks feature super production from the great Tony Hatch – who helped Wynter hit his heights in the 60s – but even without Tony's help, the sound of the music is pretty darn great overall. And while some of Mark's work has been reissued before, this set really opens up the field – to only only include classics for Pye Records, but also Decca material too – and a whole not of unreleased tracks too! There's a massive 95 tracks in all – plus a big booklet of notes – a heck of a deal at this price. CD

The lost second half of the career of Johnnie Ray – material recorded after the singer's big rise to fame in the early 50s, on both the pop and R&B charts – from a troubled time that's often not as well-documented as his hits! And yet Johnnie's still knocking it out of the park on these sides – doing a bit of jazz at times, recording overseas, and even hitting some soulful modes in the 60s – all with that unbridled quality that made him a key precursor to rock stars of the time, who sadly eclipsed everything Ray had to offer. Includes a heavy harcover book, and fetaurea material for Cadence, United Artists, Reprise, Decca, Groove, Liberty, and Pye! (Vocalists, Rock) CD
