Laura NyroLittle Magic A Little Kindness – The Complete Mono Albums Collection (More Than A New Discovery/Eli & The Thirteenth Confession/bonus track ... CD
Columbia/Real Gone, Late 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $19.99 21.99
Two full early albums from Laura Nyro – both presented here in their rare mono mixes, with bonus tracks too! First up is More Than A New Discovery – Laura Nyro's first album ever! Even at this early point, Nyro sounds wonderful – a fair bit more soulful than most other female pop singers of her time – with a fully-fleshed out approach to the vocals that's mature and sensitive, and almost a bit more confident at times than in later years. Arrangements are by Herb Bernstein, and almost have the same sort of sunny feel as The 5th Dimension in their famous covers of Nyro's tunes – again with more soul than we might have expected for the time. Titles include "Lazy Susan", "Stoney End", "Flim Flam Man", "Buy & Sell", "He's A Runner", "Billy's Blues", and "Wedding Bell Blues". Eli & The Thirteenth Confession is groundbreaking work from Laura Nyro – exactly the kind of record that sums up the unique genius in her music! The record's not folk, not pop, not soul, nor jazz vocals – but a new sort of style that draws a bit from all those genres, and comes up with a bold new approach that opened the door for countless other female singers in years to come. Despite the fame of the record, and many attempts to copy its genius over the years, Nyro is completely without cliche here – unique in her approach and presentation of the material, and as personally possessed as she is fragile and introspective. Arrangements are by Charlie Calello, and really get the spirit of the tunes right – and titles include "Luckie", "Lonely Women", "Emmie", "Timer", "Eli's Comin", "December's Boudouir", "Stoned Soul Picnic", "Woman's Blues", and "Once It Was Alright Now". Bonus tracks include "Stone End (single version with alt lyrics)", "Eli's Comin (single version)", and "Save The Country (single version)". CD

✨✧ Donald FagenNightfly (Ultradisc One-Step Pressing) ... LP
Mobile Fidelity/Warner, 1982. Near Mint- 2LP Box Set ... $179.99
A bit of jazzy magic from Fagen – stepping out from the cover of Steely Dan after the Gaucho album, and sounding pretty darn great on his own! The record is almost nostalgic, going back to a 50s of Brubeck, abstract expressionism, and pre-Castro Havana – filled with images that are a bit less oblique than those of Fagen's work with Steely Dan, and a love for the subject matter that makes us like the record even more. Musically, the set follows strongly from Gaucho, but has perhaps a bit more straight jazz – and titles include "The Goodbye Look", "Walk Between Raindrops", "IGY", "Green Flower Street", and "New Frontier".

✨✧ OrmDiscofil (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Panton/GAD (Poland), 1979. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Disco grooves from 70s Poland – music that might seem like a joke at first glance, but which comes off quite nicely – thanks to lots of keyboard work on moog, Hammond, Arp, and Fender Rhodes! The keyboards are really the star of the set – even though there's vocals from keyboardist Peter Orm on many cuts – but the approach is relatively stripped-down and lean, less American disco than that moment when some of the European groups who might have once been prog shortened their songs, upped the rhythms, and allowed for lots of nice keyboard elements – ala the Italian groups in the Cosmic scene! Peter's partner in the group is Pavel Orm, who handles guitars and bass – and titles include "Magic Fly", "Chime Course", "Further & More", "Chess King", "Weekend", "Winding Off The Tape", "Boomerang", and "It's Only Moon Of Know Of Us". CD features bonus tracks – single versions of "Boomerang", "Fany & Any", "Carousel", and "Magic Fly". CD

✨✧ Beach BoysGood Vibrations – 30 Years Of The Beach Boys (5CD box set) ... CD
Capitol, 1960s/1970s. Used 5 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the greatest rock and roll box sets of all time – way more than just a collection of hits, and a virtual treasure trove of rare material by the group! The first 4 CDs in the set features some hits, some album cuts, and some singles by the group – but also include a tasty batch of previously unissued numbers, including bits from the legendary Smile sessions, and some other great out-takes and studio bits. Plus, disc 5 features a huge amount of previously unissued work by the group – almost an audio-documentary of sorts, with snippets from rehearsals, outtakes, vocal warmups, and other gems that really get at the way Brian Wilson and the group created their magical sound! There's also a great booklet, but it's our bet you'll hardly get a chance to read it, with all the great music in the set! CD
(Out of print, please note that the outer box & booklet are intact but have some water damage.)
