Arthur PrysockAll My Life (with bonus track) ... CD CD format
Old Town/Big Break (UK), 1976. New Copy ... $14.99
A great 70s move for Arthur Prysock – and an overlooked disco treasure that sits somewhere between the work of Barry White with Love Unlimited Orchestra, and the best Lou Rawls grooves for Philly International! Prysock's voice has lost none of its depth over the years – and here, instead of jazzy ballads, Arthur's working with some great midtempo grooves put together by John Davis – who produced and arranged, and gives the album all the full clubby depth of his own records with the Monster Orchestra! The mix of groove and grace, baritone and bump, soul and sophistication is all mighty great territory for Prysock – and titles include "When Love Is New", "One Broken Heart", "All My Life", "Love Makin Love To You", "I Wantcha Baby", and "All I Need Is You Tonight". Features a bonus single mix of "When Love Is New". CD

Shirley BasseyShirley Bassey Is Really Something ... LP LP format
United Artists, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $11.99
Funky Shirley Bassey! This is a great set of Shirley's groove-happy work cut in the late 60s – hip tunes arranged by UK easy maestro Johnny Harris, best known for his fantastic work on the Stepping Stones record under his own name, forever a beathead classic! Features the great, funky big band version of "Light My Fire" – one of Shirley's best tunes ever, and a cut that's been sampled and remixed often in recent years! Also includes the breakbeat version of "Spinning Wheel", and the cuts "My Way", "Sea & Sand", "What About Today?", "You & I", "Easy To Be Hard", "Life Goes On" and "Yesterday I Heard The Rain". LP, Vinyl record album

Sarah VaughanDuke Ellington Songbook Vol 1 ... LP LP format
Pablo, 1979. Very Good+ ... $2.99
Sarah Vaughan takes on the work of Duke Ellington – almost presented here in a style that's similar to some of the Songbook albums on Verve from the 50s! Billy Byers handles most of the arrangements here – especially on the larger group numbers – but some tracks are also in a small combo mode, and are often the most interesting, because Sarah opens up with a looser feel than on some of the more "respectful" big group tracks. Titles on this first volume include "In A Sentimental Mood", "I Let A Song Go Out Of My Heart", "I'm Just A Lucky So & So", "Solitude", "Day Dream", "Lush Life", "All Too Soon", and "In A Mellow Tone".

Joe WilliamsPresenting Joe Williams And Thad Jones Mel Lewis (purple cover) ... LP LP format
Solid State, 1968. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $8.99
A funky big band album, recorded by Thad Jones & Mel Lewis, with the great Joe Williams on vocals! The record is one of the most sought-after by the team – probably because it includes the hard breakbeat version of "Get Out of My Life Woman" that's been sampled often over the years. (Actually, hasn't every version of it been sampled by someone?) The other tracks are pretty funky, too, with nice soul groovers like "Night Time Is The Right Time", "Woman's Got Soul", and "How Sweet It Is". Players include Pepper Adams, Joe Farrell, Jerome Richardson, and Roland Hanna – and the Jones/Lewis group is at the height of its hipness here! LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny MathisYou Light Up My Life/Mathis Magic ... CD CD format
Columbia/FTG, 1978/1979. New Copy ... $15.99 17.98
A pair of late 70s albums from Johnny Mathis – back to back on a single CD! You Light Up My Life is mellow magic from Johnny Mathis – a late 70s set that updates his older style for a crossover audience in adult contemporary! The style is smooth and polished, but never so much so that Johnny's amazing voice can't shine through – thanks to soulful arrangements from Gene Page, who'd done plenty of work with hipper soul artists in the 70s – and Deniece Williams makes a great guest appearance on a number of tracks – really bringing Mathis into that duet style that would hit even bigger for the singer in the 80s. Titles include "If You Believe", "To Much Too Little Too Late", "How Deep Is Your Love", "It Was Almost Like A Song", and "Till Love Touches Your Life". Mathis Magic has a nice sort of bite at times – Johnny breaking out of just mellow modes, and getting a bit of inspiration from Gene Page, who handled the arrangements for the set. A few tunes almost kick into a clubby sort of vibe, in which Johnny's vocals soar nicely – and titles include "Love", "Night & Day", "My Body Keeps Changing My Mind", "No One But The One You Love", "To The Ends Of The Earth", and "Heart Soul Body & Mind".

Frank SinatraFrank Sinatra Live From Las Vegas – 19 Previously Unreleased Live Hits & Signature Songs ... CD CD format
Capitol, 1986. Used ... $4.99
A live session from Sinatra's autumn years – recorded at the Golden Nugget in 1986, and featuring Ol Blue Eyes in fine fine form! Orchestrations are by Bill Miller, and stick pretty closely to the classic charts penned for Frank from more famous recordings – but the album does have a sense of spontaneity that's pretty great, especially on the bits when Frank gets to talk to the audience. The overall mood isn't as edgey as that from Frank's live Rat Pack recordings, but that quality is also nicely replaced by a sense of power, presence, and relaxed confidence that the live Sinatra was still one of the biggest draws in the business. Titles include the unusual numbers "The Girls I Never Kissed" and "Only One To A Customer" – plus "New York New York", "My Way", "For Once In My Life", "Luck Be A Lady", "What Now My Love", and "I've Got The World On A String".
