Tommy FlandersMoonstone ... LP
Verve, 1969. Very Good- ... $18.99
The rare folksy psychedelic solo set from Tommy Flanders of the Blues Project – a fairly stripped down, acoustic guitar and misty-eyed vocals led set of tunes. Moonstone is fairly straight forward singer songwriter record in some ways, with lovelorn lyrics and laidback arrangements – but it has flashes of out there mysticism. The LA session players are impeccable, too! Titles include "Since You've Been Gone", "Blue Water Blue", "Morning Misty Eyes", "Purple And Blue", "Moonstone", "By The Mailbox We Stood", "Angel Of Mercy", "Boston Girls", "Sleepin'", "She's My Love" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

Friend & LoverReach Out Of The Darkness ... LP
Verve/Forecast, 1967. Near Mint- ... $9.99
One hit wonders – but oh what a hit! Friend & Lover's "Reach Out Of The Darkness" is a really unique little tune that brings together folksy vocals and funky rhythms – a solid jammer that brushed off the cobwebs of the aging folk scene of the 60s, and sprung into the charts with a trippy groove that still sounds great today! The rest of the record has a really similar feel – much heavier bass and drums than the usual folk outing, creating a sound that's nicely funky on some of the best numbers, and always groovy on all the others. Vocals are by "Friend" Jim Post and "Lover" Cathy Conn – harmonizing together nicely – and titles include "Reach Out Of The Darkness", "Saturday's Hero", "Zig Zag", "Boston Is A Lovely Town", "I'm A Woman I'm A Man", "Ode To A Dandelion", and "If Love Is In Your Heart".

Ellie GreenwichLet It Be Written Let It Be Sung ... LP
Verve, 1973. Sealed ... $9.99
A compelling solo project from Ellie Greenwich – one of a handful of dates she recorded as a singer – stepping out of the Brill Building shadows to go for the same sort of fame received by some of her songwriting contemporaries! The groove here is great – kind of sweet and jazzy at times – as you might expect from the album's placement on Verve – with arrangements by Artie Butler that are smooth, but never in the slick sort of 70s AOR way – especially because they know when to step back and really let the vocals take the lead. All tracks are originals by Greenwich, including classics from her years with Jeff Barry – redone nicely here in a 70s mode – and titles include "Maybe I Know", "Today I Met The Boy I'm Gonna Marry", "If You Loved Me Once", "Be My Baby", "Getting Together", "Goodnight Baby/Baby I Love You", "Chapel Of Love", and "What Good Is I Love You".

Tim HardinTim Hardin 1 ... LP
Verve, Mid 60s. Very Good+ ... $19.99
Fantastically beautiful stuff! Tim emerges here as one of the true genius singer-songwriters of his generation – mixing together folksy roots, intimate jazz-inflected vocalizations, and wonderful instrumental touches from players like Gary Burton, Earl Palmer, and John Sebastian, layered over haunting strings by Artie Butler. One we'd never part with – and with classics like "Don't Make Promises", "It'll Never Happen Again", "Reason To Believe", and "Misty Roses". LP, Vinyl record album
(Verve Folkways mono pressing with deep groove.)

Ruben & The Jets (Frank Zappa)Cruising With Ruben & The Jets ... LP
Verve, Late 60s. Very Good Gatefold ... $19.99
Frank Zappa's amazing tribute to the sounds of LA that inspired him in his youth – not just the early rock and roll of the late 50s, but the way the music was picked up and given a home by the scene in East LA! There's a surprising amount of nascent soul elements in the music here – especially the early harmony groups, who Frank's clearly paying tribute to with The Jets – sometimes dealing with subject matter that goes way beyond what most of those groups would have touched – but other times, right in line with the most heartfelt sounds of the 60s! Titles include "Deseri", "How Could I Be Such A Fool", "Cheap Thrills", "No No No", "Anyway The Wind Blows", "Stuff Up The Cracks", and "Jelly Roll Gum Drop". LP, Vinyl record album

Velvet UndergroundAnother View – A Collection Of Previously Unreleased Recordings ... CD
Verve, Late 60s. Used ... $9.99
A follow-up to the VU album – and like that one, a mid 80s set that brings together material that the Velvet Underground recorded in the late 60s for Verve, but which remained unissued for years! The work here's a bit less top-shelf than that on VU – sometimes a bit more rough around the edges, and slightly more unformed – but like all Velvets from this point, the music's all still plenty darn essential, and almost outdoes most of what was to come on Loaded. Titles include an original version of "Rock & Roll", 2 takes on "Hey Mr Rain", and the tracks "We're Gonna Have A Goodtime Together", "I'm Gonna Move Right In", "Coney Island Steeplechase", "Ferryboat Bill", "Ride Into The Sun", and "Guess I'm Falling In Love (inst)".

Velvet UndergroundWhite Light/White Heat (45th Anniversary 2LP on 180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Verve, 1968. New Copy 2 LP Gatefold (reissue)... $22.99 34.98
One of the most far-out, freaked-out albums ever from the Velvet Underground – easily the most experimental set the group ever recorded! The album's awash in really unusual sounds and styles – from the sonic blast of the title cut "White Light/White Heat", to the 17 minute garage/psych jam of "Sister Ray" to the very odd "The Gift" – which is a creepy story about cuckolding, told with voice and instrumentation split over different stereo channels! Other tunes offset the darkness with an eerie touch of sweet – and include "Here She Comes Now", "Lady Godiva's Operation", and "I Heard Her Call My Name". Arguably one of the Velvets' most influential moments – even if it's also one of their least commercially successful! This great 2LP package features loads of sweet extra bits – including "I Heard Her Call My Name (alternate)", "Hey Mr Rain (version one)", "Temptation Inside Your Heart (original mix)", "Stephanie Says (orig mix)", "Beginning To See The Light (early version)", "Hey Mr Rain (version two)", and "Guess I'm Falling In Love (instrumental)".

Frank Zappa/Mothers Of InventionAbsolutely Free ... LP
Verve, 1967. Very Good- Gatefold ... $14.99
One of the most mindblowing pop culture pastiches of the 60s – a record that's as absolutely mad as it is absolutely free – and proof that a whole new generation of musicians like Zappa were using the studio like an instrument itself! This is work that could have never existed away from record – as the mix of sounds, moods, and music comes together with a maddening frenzy – hardly the languid speed you'd expect from the early years of hippiedom – and instead, an inspirational stream of styles and ideas delivered with trademark Zappa dexterity and wit! The album's divided into two long passages – "Absolutely Free" and "The MOI American Pageant" – with tracks that include "Plastic People", "Amnesia Vivace", "The Duke Regains His Chops", "America Drinks & Goes Home", "Son Of Suzy Creamcheese", "Status Back Baby", and "The Duke Of Prunes".

✨✧ NicoChelsea Girl (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Verve/4 Men With Beards, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the greatest records of the 60s – and a sublime debut from Nico, sounding fresher and less dreary here than on many of her later sides – although still pretty chilling overall! The record features larger orchestral backings on most tracks – never too heavy, but with light strings that really help Nico depart from the sound of her work with The Velvet Underground. This style adds a new level of sophistication to her vocals, and really helps in her interpretation of the unusual material culled for the set – tunes that include a few key numbers by old partners in The Velvets, as well as some especially great tracks by a young Jackson Browne – a romantic interest of Nico at the time! The whole thing's incredible – on a par with the best from Scott Walker during the same stretch, although very different overall – and a key entry in the darker side of the non-hippie end of the 60s spectrum. Titles include "These Days", "It Was A Pleasure Then", "Eulogy To Lenny Bruce", and the incredible title cut, "Chelsea Girls". Fantastic! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Velvet UndergroundVU - A Collection Of Previously Unreleased Recordings ... LP
Verve, 1968/1969. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A slice of Velvet Underground that's almost as essential as the group's first few albums for Verve – material recorded during those years, but never issued at the time – finally put together in a legitimate package in the mid 80s, after years of circulating around as bootlegs! The songwriting here is really great – a strong extension of the group's work on White Light White Heat and their third, self-titled album – especially the latter, because there's some nicely sweet and spacey moments. Titles include "Stephanie Says", "Ocean", "I Can't Stand It", "Foggy Notion", "I'm Sticking With You", "Temptation Inside Your Heart", "Lisa Says", "One Of These Days", "Andy's Chest", and "She's My Best Friend". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve.)
