Lee HazlewoodTrouble Is A Lonesome Town (mono version – with bonus tracks) ... LP
Mercury/Light In The Attic, 1963. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $14.99
An amazing record from the young Lee Hazlewood – recorded in the years before working with Nancy Sinatra, and done with a very hip edge that stretches way past its date of origin – to a time ten years later, when the LA scene would be in the midst of a fascination with country and roots music! Hazlewood is the lost link in that tradition, and this album is key proof of that fact – served up with a mixture of warmth, cynicism, and just plain wit that was extremely unusual for the early 60s. Lee uses the fictional town of Trouble as the setting for the 10 little story tracks in the album – which are great little songs about love, life, not loving, and not living. The music is deceptively simple, and Hazlewood weaves the songs together with narration that brings the whole thing alive nicely – really showcasing the warmth and wit that makes his music so special. Titles include "We All Make The Flowers Grow", "Six Feet Of Chain", "Trouble Is A Lonesome Town", "The Railroad", "Run Boy Run", "Son Of A Gun", and "Look At That Woman". Rare mono mix, beautifully presented with great sound and loads of notes – and also features a huge amount of bonus tracks too! Bonus tracks include "It's An Actuality", "Forth Worth", "I Guess It's Love", and the incredible promo-only "Lee Hazlewood Autobiography" – which features Hazlewood telling his life story set to his own acoustic guitar playing, with even more wit than on the album – plus two vocal tunes with Duane Eddy – "The Girl On Death Row" and "Words Mean Nothing" – and four more recorded under the name of Mark Robinson – "Pretty Jane", "Want Me", "Can't Let Her See Me Cry", and "I've Made Enough Mistakes Today".

Jackie & RoyJackie Cain & Roy Kral ... LP
Brunswick, Mid 50s. Very Good ... $11.99
Wonderful early work from Jackie & Roy – a rare album that captures them between their early fame with Charlie Ventura, and their key classics on Storyville and ABC! The pair are great throughout – singing duo jazz vocals with a sense of whimsy and swing that nobody else can match – and backings from both Neal Hefti and Ventura ensure that there's a strong jazz sensibility to all tracks, with just the right kind of back and forth motion to bring out all the best charms of the pair. Titles include "Banana Split", "I Hear Music", "The Continental", "The Honey Jump", "Love Nest", "Glasses N Ashes N Bottles N Cans", and "Just You Just Me". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear, and a small mark from an old sticker. Vinyl is nice and clean.)

Janis SiegelJanis Siegel At Home ... LP
Atlantic, 1987. Near Mint- ... $3.99
A surprisingly great solo set from Janis Siegel – one that takes her away from The Manhattan Transfer, and helps her find a groove that's got some great soul overtones at times! Of course, it helps that the record begins with a vocal cover of Marvin Gaye's "Trouble Man" – quite a surprising choice, but one that really helps mark the album as something different – a spirit that Janis follows well through a selection of tunes that include "From Vienna With Love", "Night Trane", "The Million Dollar Secret", "Small Day Tomorrow", and "Bob White".

Nancy WilsonThis Mother's Daughter ... LP
Capitol, 1976. Near Mint- ... $9.99
One of Nancy Wilson's hippest albums from the 70s – a great record of smooth mellow tracks produced by Eugene McDaniels, handled with some nice jazzy flourishes, and a warm soulful sound that brings out the best in Nancy's vocals! If you've dug her vocals on the Life, Love, & Harmony album, you'll find that this one's pretty similar – with some great easily grooving tunes that well mark her move into modern soul – and a sophistication that goes way beyond her work of the 60s! Titles include "China", "I Don't Want A Sometimes Man", "From You To Me To You", "Stay Tuned", "When We Were One", and "Now". LP, Vinyl record album
(180 gram pressing on Pure Pleasure, still in the shrink.)

✨✧ Lois WyseI Love You Better Now ... LP
Flying Dutchman, 1970. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $5.99
One of the weirder albums on the Flying Dutchman label – work by a poet who's written books on "love poems for the very married" – set to music from Toots Thielmans on guitar and harmonica, Bucky Pizzarelli on guitar, and Bill Hammond on flute! LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cutout mark, and some light wrinkling in the laminate.)
