Mark MurphySwingin Singin Affair ... LP
Fontana, 1965. Very Good+ ... $19.99
A rare British session from vocalist Mark Murphy – and one of his grooviest albums of the 60s! Mark's working here with great backings from the orchestras of Tubby Hayes, John Dankworth, and Les Reed – all of whom give Murphy some of his hippest grooves to date, very much in the mode of some of his work on the Midnight Mood album cut for MPS during the same overseas 60s stretch. And as with that one, there's a nice selection of tunes that goes way past the usual – and which shows off the widest range of Murphy's groovy vocal talents – titles that include "Ballyhoo", "Iceberg", "Stablemates", "She Loves You", "Come Rain Or Come Shine", "I Left My Heart In San Francisco", "From Time To Time", and "The Best Is Yet To Come". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original stereo pressing with deep groove.)

Frances FayeI'm Wild Again (60s pressing) ... LP
Bethlehem, 1955. Very Good+ ... $9.99
Maybe the greatest album ever from vocalist Frances Faye – and definitely the one to capture her genius in the best sort of west coast setting to really make it sparkle! The arrangements are by Russ Garcia – who directs extremely fluid work from a four trombone section that features Frank Rosolino, Maynard Ferguson, Herbie Harper, and Pullman Pederson – all gliding nicely alongside the deeper range of Frances' vocals, in a wonderful match of tone. The rhythm section features Gerald Wiggins on piano, Red Mitchell on bass, and Chico Hamilton on drums – and titles include "Toreador", "Love For Sale", "Embraceable You", "Clear Out Of This World", "They Can't Take That Away From Me", and "He's Funny That Way". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a split top seam, some splitting on the bottom seam, and a mark from an old sticker.)

Johnny MathisGood Night Dear Lord ... LP
Columbia, 1958. Very Good ... $4.99
An interesting early project from Johnny Mathis – one that has him taking on some gospel and spiritual standards, but in a way that's more in his own lush style than regular gospel! LP, Vinyl record album
(Original 6 eye pressing. Vinyl has a mark that clicks on two tracks. Cover has a very light stain near the bottom.)

Debby MooreMy Kind Of Blues ... LP
Top Rank, 1959. Very Good ... $11.99
A cool little record from vocalist Debby Moore – an artist who whistles as well as she sings, and often manages to mix both talents strongly in the space of a single track! The album's got a slightly laidback, slightly bluesy feel – still jazz at the core, but in a way that has Debby hitting plenty of late nite, blue-tinged modes – a bit similar to Ernestine Anderson or Lorez Alexandria at the same points in their careers, and handled with similar small combo backing. Players include Harry Edison on trumpet – who sweetens up the sound nicely – plus Jimmy Jones on piano, Barry Galbraith on guitar, George Duvivier on bass, and Elvin Jones on drums. Titles include "How Come You Do Me Like You Do", "My Baby Loves Me True", "Five Months Two Weeks Two Days", "Come On Home To Me", "Sent For You Yesterday", "Nothin But Trouble On My Mind", and "No Love No Nothin". CD features the bonus track "Get A Feeling". LP, Vinyl record album
(Gold label stereo pressing with deep groove. Vinyl has a mark that clicks on "Come On Home To Me". Cover is in nice shape.)

✨✧ Gil Scott-HeronFree Will ... LP
Flying Dutchman, 1972. Very Good- Gatefold ... $55.99
A really tremendous album from the legendary Gil Scott-Heron – and a set that stands as one of his greatest statements from the 70s! The record is a wonderful example of Gil's work in two different styles – sweet mellow jazzy soul, and harder heavier protest poetry – the latter from his roots as a writer in touch with the streets, and the former part of a brilliant new direction that he was taking on the Flying Dutchman label. Side one features classic jazzy tracks recorded with Brian Jackson – like "Free Will", "The Middle Of Your Days", "Speed Kills", and "Did You Hear What They Said?". Side two moves over to a much sparer sound – and has Gil reciting some of his poetry with very heavy percussion, and a very righteous approach. The wisdom and knowledge of those pieces is a perfect example of the kinds of issues that were haunting black America in the early 70s – especially on the tracks "No Knock", "The King Alfred Plan", and "Sex Education: Ghetto Style". (Soul, Vocalists) LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing. Vinyl has a mark that clicks on "King Alfred Plan".)
