Frankie RandallSwingin Touch (aka Sings & Swings) ... CD
RCA (Spain), 1964/1965. Used ... $6.99
A really classic-styled set recorded in the heart of the 60s – done in a mode that certainly owes something to other crooners in the years before Frankie Randall, but which also comes off with some hipper modern touches – thanks to great arrangements from Marty Paich! As with other ... read more CD

Sue RaneyDreamsville – The Music Of Henry Mancini ... CD
Discovery (Japan), 1989. New Copy ... $21.99
Henry Mancini's best remembered as one of the most important instrumental film composers of the 60s and 70s – but the man also gave us a fair bit of vocal gems, too – great cuts that were co-composed with lyricists who include Johnny Mercer, Leslie Bricusse, Jay Livinston, and the team ... read more CD

Sue RaneyHeart's Desire – A Tribute To Doris Day ... CD
Fresh Sound (Spain), 2006. Used ... $9.99
Sue Raney's a west coast singer mostly known for her albums of the 60s, but she makes a surprising return here in a set of tunes recorded recently with arrangements and piano from Alan Broadbent! There's a relatively classic feel to the material, despite the recent date – and Broadbent backs ... read more CD

Sue RaneyIn Good Company ... CD
Discovery (Japan), 1990. New Copy ... $21.99
Sue Raney's a singer that most folks know from some famous Capitol Records albums at the end of the 50s – yet she's also a hell of a vocalist who really knows how to keep on keeping on – as she does strongly on this album from the start of the 90s! Sue's got a modern look on the cover, ... read more CD

✨✧ Kenny RankinLike A Seed ... LP
Little David, 1972. Very Good+ ... $2.99
Indescribably beautiful work from Kenny Rankin – a jazzy blend of vocals and folk – delivered with a warm and soulful tone that's unlike anyone else! The whole thing's great – really very much its own spirit, and kind of a bright light after a host of doom and gloom late 60s folk- ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Lou RawlsLove All Your Blues Away ... CD
Epic (Japan), 1986. New Copy ... $13.99
The voice of Lou Rawls is wonderful in so many different settings – in early gospel work with the Pilgrim Travelers, in 60s soul with HB Barnum and David Axelrod, and even hitting a Philly groove in the late 70s! Here, Lou takes on a whole new sound – working with more of an 80s soul ... (Soul, Vocalists) read more CD
(Part of the great AOR City series from Japan!)

Lou RawlsSoulin' ... CD
Capitol/Elemental (France), 1966. New Copy Gatefold ... $16.99
One of the best albums that Lou Rawls cut with the team of HB Barnum and David Axelrod – that incredible duo who made some of his 60s Capitol albums so great! The style here is wonderful – upbeat grooves from Barnum – who brings more soul into Lou's music than before – ... (Soul, Vocalists) read more CD

Della ReeseDate With Della Reese At Mr Kelly's In Chicago ... CD
Jubilee/Warner (Japan), 1958. New Copy ... $14.99
A great small club date from singer Della Reese – recorded early in her career, and maybe one of her best albums from the time! There's a relaxed, easygoing charm that Della has on stage – maybe more personality than on some of her studio albums, to match her undeniable skills as a ... read more CD

✨✧ Della ReeseMelancholy Baby ... CD
Jubilee/Warner (Japan), 1956. New Copy ... $14.99
Della Reese definitely takes the "melancholy" in the title seriously here – and turns the set into one of her most blue-tinged records from the early days! The backings are full, but never too lush – handled perfectly by Sid Bass, who shades in the corners with some sad ... read more CD

Della ReeseStory of the Blues ... CD
Jubilee/Warner (Japan), 1958. New Copy ... $14.99
A really cool concept record from Della Reese – and an early album that shows just how deeply she approached her role as a jazz singer! The set's the "story of the blues" promised in the title – as Della both sings songs with older roots, and presents overarching narration ... read more CD

Dianne ReevesLittle Moonlight ... CD
Blue Note, 2003. Used ... $3.99
Dianne Reeves – as lovely as ever, perhaps even more so – as the set's a nicely stripped-down session that really showcases her best side! The tunes are spare and simple small combo numbers – mostly with piano trio backing, but also including a bit of occasional trumpet and ... read more CD
(Out of print, mark through barcode & promotional stamp on CD.)

✨✧ Diane RenayNavy Blue (with bonus tracks) ... CD
20th Century/Universal (Japan), 1964. New Copy ... $18.99
Diane Renay's clearly got a thing for sailors going on here – but maybe that's no surprise, given that she's handled on the album by the great Bob Crewe – whose perfect presentation of the music is right up there with his best pop of the 60s! Charlie Calello handled almost all of the ... (Rock, Vocalists) read more CD

Ann RichardsAnn, Man! ... CD
Atlantic/Collectables, 1961. Used ... $6.99
One of the few albums ever recorded by 50s vocalist Ann Richards – best known for her work with Stan Kenton in the post-June Christy days, stepping out very nicely here in a small group session! Ann's definitely got a touch of the June in her approach – but she's also a bit warmer, and ... read more CD

Max RoachWe Insist! – Freedom Now Suite ... LP
Candid, 1960. Very Good ... $59.99
One of the most righteous albums that Max Roach ever cut – and a monumental jazz release from the heart of the Civil Rights era!
