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".

✨✧ 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.

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

Jon-MarkSally Free & Easy ... CD
Decca/RPM (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $11.99
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".

✨✧ WhoLive at Leeds ... LP
Decca, 1970. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $16.99
A landmark live set from The Who – a record that offers the group with a blistering intensity that blows away all their other studio albums of the time! Although offered during the Who's Tommy-era expansion into broader themes and more complicated instrumentation, the album's a real return to basics – and features a guitar-heavy version of the group performing a number of older rock n roll classics like "Summertime Blues", "Shakin All Over", and "Young Man Blues" – plus really extended jamming takes on their own "My Generation" and "Magic Bus", and a searing 2 minute take on "Substitute" that's probably everything you ever need to know about The Jam!

WhoMagic Bus ... LP
Decca, 1968. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
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

Decca/MCA, 1965/1968. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $16.99
A Who double-header! On Magic Bus, The Who may look like they're tripping things out a bit – 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". My Generation is 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".

WhoMeaty Beaty Big & Bouncy ... LP
Decca, 1971. Very Good Gatefold ... $7.99
A classic greatest hits package from The Who – one that had almost as much life as any of their major full length albums, and a set that served to re-introduce new audiences to the group after the success of Tommy and Who's Next! Most of the tracks here predate those albums – pulled from the group's earliest years, and awash in mod rhythms, tight guitars, and lyrics that are quite edgey – even in the format of a two-minute pop tune. Titles include "Boris The Spider", "Happy Jack", "Pictures Of Lily", "My Generation", "The Seeker", "I Can't Explain", "The Kids Are Alright", "Anyway Anyhow Anywhere", "A Legal Matter", "Substitute", "I'm A Boy", and "Pinball Wizard".

WhoTommy ... LP
Decca, 1970. Very Good+ 2LP Trifold ... $11.99
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".

Wishbone AshArgus (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Decca, 1972. Used ... $4.99
The early 70s mix of medieval themes and more 70s rooted jams – Argus by Wishbone Ash! If you haven't heard this one, and you're expecting battle axes, swords and early metal bombast. . .well, there's some of that. But Wishbone Ash were restless cats, and there's longwinded acoustic passages and all kinds of early 70s rock going on here! Dig that Hipgnosis cover art, too. Titles include "Time Was", "Sometime World", "Warrior", "Throw Down The Sword", "Blowin Free" and more. CD includes 3 bonus tracks. CD

✨✧ Moody BluesMagnificent Moodies (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Decca/Repertoire, 1965. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An incredible first album from The Moody Blues – way way different than any of their later high-concept work, and much more in the best soul and R&B-drenched material of the UK mod scene of the time! A number of cuts here are remakes of American soul tracks – including their stellar take on "Go Now" – and like some of the Moodies' best contemporaries, like Manfred Mann, the group really transform the material – and don't just offer up blue-eyed takes on the tunes. Instead, there's a free sense of play with the material – leanings that are definitely rockish on the solos, even though the overall vibe is quite soulful – and done with this tightly compressed style that's perfect for the vocals of the young Denny Laine – with a vibe that's further expanded by some nice use of echo in the production. Surprisingly wonderful – and very different than "Knights In White Satin" – with titles that include "Go Now", "I'll Go Crazy", "True Story", "Can't Nobody Love You", "I've Got A Dream", and "Let Me Go", plus 7 bonus tracks!

Los BravosBlack Is Black – The Anthology 1966 to 1969 ... CD
RPM (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $15.99
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 ... $9.99
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

Bear Family (Germany), Late 50s/1960s/Early 70s. Used 9CDs ... Out Of Stock
A set that brings together every single English language album recorded by Caterina Valente – a surprisingly huge amount of records done for Decca, RCA, and London – from 1959 to 1973 – plus an early audition tape as well! As usual with Bear Family, the presentation is wonderful – most songs on CD for the first time – and the whole thing comes with a huge hardcover book of notes. (Vocalists, Rock) CD
(Book has a small dent on the bottom edge, and the plastic tray holding the CD's has a few cracks, but overall the set is still in really good shape.)
