Igor WakhevitchLes Fous D'Or (180 gram clear vinyl pressing) ... LP
Pathe/Fauni Gena (Spain), 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $28.99
Really dark sounds from the enigmatic Igor Wakhevitch – even darker than his previous albums, and that's saying a lot, given the nature of those sets! This one was done in collaboration with American dancer Carolyn Carlson – but given the moody, offbeat quality of the sounds on the disc, we're damned if we can figure out how anyone could physically interact with the music! Some passages are very abstract and electronic – while others seem to use atonal acoustic instruments, but with a vibe that's still quite electric – and even the few female vocal passages come across with a sharp, striking quality – a bit like Cathy Berberian with Berio. Titles include "Eve Speaks", "Henry The Fool Of The Doll", "Ritual Of The Master Of The Doll", "Arrival Of The Magic Doll", and "Twilight & Call Of The Ascending Spirit". LP, Vinyl record album
(Clear vinyl – and comes with a great insert too!)

SagittariusPresent Tense (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Columbia/Rev-Ola (UK), 1968. New Copy ... $8.99
A wonderful post-Millenium project from godlike California producers Gary Usher and Curt Boettcher – working together here as Sagittarius, and getting help from a whole host of LA hipsters too! The work has a dreamy Sunshine Pop vibe all the way through – even more gentle and personal than Millenium, with a quality that we might well rank up there with Roger Nichols & The Small Circle of Friends – done with a similar echoey vocal approach that's wrapped around some great little songs that you'll be humming long after the album is over! Titles include "Hotel Indiscreet", "My World Fell Down", "The Keeper Of The Games", "Another Time", "Song to The Magic Frog", "Would You Like To Go", and "I'm Not Living Here". CD also includes 8 bonus tracks – including "Mass 586", "Lonely Girl", "Artificial Light", "Get The Message", and "Love's Fatal Way". CD

Margie SingletonPledging My Love – Juke Box Pearls ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), Early 60s. New Copy ... $18.99 22.99
Sweet girl pop from the early 60s – a treasure trove of work from the under-discovered Margie Singleton! If Margie's last name seems familiar, that's no coincidence – as the cuts here were produced by Shelby Singleton, later of SSS International fame – recorded in Nashville in a unique approach to female pop at the time! The music's definitely a bit country, but not entirely so – as Margie's got this cool crossover vibe, of the sort we can always find in Shelby's music – so that she also echoes styles from the west coast scene of the period, but always tinged with a heartbreaking quality that's pure Tennessee! The tracks here originally appeared as early 60s singles on Mercury, and the package does a great job of bringing them together with all the original session information – as well as lots of notes on her short career. CD features 30 tracks in all – including "Toss A Pebble In The Water", "How Lonely She Must Be", "Chained To A Promise", "Living In A Danger Zone", "Magic Star", "Don't Be Good To Me", "The Cypress Tree", "No Thanks I Just Had One", and "Your Old Love Letters".

✨✧ HousemartinsLondon 0 Hull 4 ... LP
Go! Discs (UK), 1986. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A jangle pop masterpiece from The Housemartins – a melodic mid 80s effort that still sounds incredible, and a record that's the very definition of deceptive simplicity in indie pop – with layers and layers of depth underneath the charismatic lead vocals, choruses, chiming guitars & rhythm! There's both spiritual and political resonance in these songs the might have flown right over our heads as kids, but then and now, it still works magically as effervescent pop. To put it simply, this belongs in the 80s indie pantheon with the Smiths and other top shelf groups of the time. Fantastic! Titles include "Happy Hour", "Get Up Off Our Knees", "Flag Day", "Anxious", "Reverends Revenge", "Sitting On A Fence", "Sheep", "Over There", "We're Not Deep", "Lean On Me" and "Freedom". LP, Vinyl record album
(US pressing on Elektra, including the printed inner sleeve. Cover has some wear.)

✨✧ Peppermint Trolley CompanyPeppermint Trolley Company ... LP
Acta, 1968. Used ... Out Of Stock
These guys are best remembered for their theme to The Brady Bunch – but this earlier album is far far better than that – a tremendous Sunshine Pop gem from the late 60s, baroque one minute, sweet the next – and always filled with a fresh sense of musical surprise! The group get a bit of help on the record from Roger Nichols and Chad Stuart (of Chad & Jeremy) – and their work here definitely echoes with the greatness of both guests – far more complicated than regular California pop of the time, with hardly an ear for the charts – and a timeless quality that's possibly better discovered from the perspective of the 21st century than the era it was released! Vocals are way more than just sweet harmonies too – as they often have an undercurrent of darkness, and a bit more of an edge than you might guess – bringing real magic to tunes that include "Trust", "Beautiful Sun", "Reflections On A Universal Theme", "I've Got To Be Going", "I Remember Long Ago", "Put Your Burden Down", "Pat's Song", and "Fatal Fallacy". LP, Vinyl record album
(Stereo pressing. Cover has some wear, two cutout holes, some seam splitting, light stains, and some wrinkling along the bottom.)
