Peggy MarchIf You Loved Me – RCA Recordings From Around The World 1963 to 1969 ... CD
Ace (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $13.99
Peggy March is a singer with a surprisingly varied career – an artist that most folks know for only her early little girl pop fame – but one who went onto record a very unusual range of sounds as the 60s moved on! RCA was her label, and while she never hit the heights of the charts after her early hit, the company was more than committed to allowing Peggy's sound to grow and flourish – especially on the international scene, where she not only recorded tracks in other languages, but also picked up new non-American songs, and served up very cool English-language versions! This set really does a great job of moving past the early stuff, and looking at this lost later legacy of March's music – sounds that we'd easily compare to the hipper 60s material by Jackie DeShannon, even though Peggy didn't write her own material. The range of studio talents really keeps things interesting – there's even one track arranged by Ennio Morricone – and titles include "He's Back Again", "If You Loved Me", "He Couldn't Care Less", "Watch What You Do With My Baby", "Johnny Cool", "Kilindini Docks", "Eh Bravo", "Passo Su Passo", "Too Long Away", "Wasurenaiwa", "Ne Joue Pas Les Enfants", "He Couldn't Care Less", "This Heart Wasn't Made To Kick Around", "Can't Stop Thinkin About Him", and "Fool Fool Fool".

Ann MargretOn The Way Up ... CD
RCA (Japan), 1961. Used ... $6.99
One of the most respectable of Ann-Margret's 60s sides for RCA – an early effort that features some tunes recorded in Nashville with Chet Atkins, who gives the lady a nicely countrified bounce! Side one is the "rock side", and has Ann doing some especially nice numbers in this mode – never too over the top and with electric bass setting a nice tone for the tunes. Dick Pierce also handles some arrangements on the set too – a bit more in the usual Ann-Margret mode, but still never too over the top. Titles include "Oh Lonesome Me", "Slowly", "What Do You Want From Me", "I Just Don't Understand", "His Ring", and "Could It Be". CD

Ann-MargretAnn Margret – The Definitive Collection ... CD
RCA/Real Gone, Mid 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $19.99 21.98
A fantastic collection of work from those years when singer Ann-Margret first popped up on the American market – young, fresh, and sexy – and willing to do whatever it took to make her music stand out from the pack! Ann-Margret's got a vocal range that's maybe deeper than most of her contemporaries – a lusty growl that makes you feel like she's singing from way down in her toes – with odd bluesy currents mixed with jazzier backings – all in a mode that has really blows away the sultry tones of previous singers like Peggy Lee or Julie London. This 30 track package is a very well-chosen array of tunes from the early RCA years – and includes lots of solo numbers, plus work with Elvis Presley and Al Hirt – on titles that include "Man's Favorite Sport", "Next Time", "Madrid/The Pleasure Seekers", "Mack The Knife", "My Baby Just Cares For Me", "Teach Me Tonight", "The Lady Loves Me", "You're The Boss", "Mr Wonderful", "That Old Black Magic", "Everything Makes Music When You're In Love", "Let Me Entertain You", "Take All The Kisses", "Something To Think About", and "Mister Kiss Kiss Bang Bang".

Harry BelafonteIsland In The Sun (5CD set) ... CD
RCA/Bear Family (Germany), 1950s. Used 5CDs ... $74.99
All the important early work of Harry Belafonte – brought together in a really wonderful set! The package features all his important early sides for RCA – and also includes earlier material for labels like Roost, Capitol, and Jubilee – some of which show Belafonte as a postwar jazz singer, working with arrangers like Pete Rugolo or Howard McGhee! As usual with Bear Family, the presentation is amazing – as the set comes with a heavy hardcover book, filled with photos and notes – to accompany this overstuffed 5CD package! CD

Andy & The Bey SistersAndy & The Bey Sisters ... LP
RCA, 1961. Very Good- ... $14.99
The landmark first album recorded by Andy Bey and his hip sisters Salome and Geraldine – cut even before their 2 rare classics on Prestige! The style here is completely sublime – a unique blend of jazz, folk, and some earthier elements – all served up with the warm and wonderful harmonies the Beys brought to jazz. The tracks are sometimes familiar numbers, but they're done with a really unique twist – and the album features an incredible reading of "A Felicidade", plus the cuts "Mood Indigo", "Zombie Jamboree", "Dreamy", "Smooth Sailing", "Trees", "Revenge", and "It Must Be So".

Diana DorsSwingin Dors ... LP
Columbia, 1960. Very Good ... $19.99
One of the sexiest sets of vocal jazz to ever come from the British scene – a classic 1960 album by the lovely Diana Dors – easily one of England's best answers to American cheesecake singers of the 50s! As you'll notice by the cover, Diana's got a look that's right up there with Marilyn Monroe or Jayne Mansfield – but as a singer, she's far better – with a full range, and good sense of expression – often delivered in the manner of some of the best vocalists working in the US for RCA in the late 50s. The backings are great too – handled by the Wally Stott orchestra with a nice sense of jazz throughout – some really swinging horns that are quite unusual for a UK session like this at the time – and which really further the American feel of the set. Titles include "That's How It Is", "Namely You", "The Point Of No Return", "Roller Coaster Blues", "The Gentleman Is A Dope", "April Heart", "I'm In Love For The Very First Time", and "Tired Of Love". LP, Vinyl record album

Toni HarperToni ... CD
Verve/Polygram (Japan), 1955. Used ... $16.99
One of the first "adult" albums by a young Toni Harper – first known as a child sensation in the 40s, but stepping out nicely as a torchy vocalist in the 50s! The album's got a really great, really mellow Verve approach – laidback, late nite jazz instrumentation – provided by a cool combo that features Oscar Peterson on piano, Herb Ellis on guitar, Ray Brown on bass, and Alvin Stoller on drums – with lots of room for Harper to really stretch out over the top! The approach is great – nicely different from some of the tighter, fuller arrangements on some of Harper's RCA albums – and titles include "Can't We Be Friends", "A Foggy Day", "Like Someone In Love", "Love For Sale", and "Gone With the Wind".

Teddi KingAll The King's Songs (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Coral/MCA (Japan), 1959. Used ... $15.99
The title tells the story of the album's concept – as Teddi King pays tribute to a dozen male "kings" of music – including Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole, Dick Haymes, and Billy Eckstine! The tunes are all signature numbers by each of the male stars – redone by Teddi here with a female twist, and set to backings by Lew Douglas and Johnny Richards – both of whom give Teddi some of the best support of her 50s career. Richards' backings are especially great – nicely dynamic, in a way that breaks past some of Teddi's sleepier qualities – and even on the mellower numbers, the King vocals are in full force, sung with even more promise than on previous albums for RCA. Titles include "Flamingo", "Unforgettable", "April Showers", "A Cottage For Sale", "This Love Of Mine", "Keeping Out Of Mischief Now", and "Temptation". CD

Jon LucienSweet Control – Best Of Jon Lucien ... CD
Razor & Tie, 1970s/Early 80s. Used ... $9.99
Although we have to admit that we're mostly partial to Jon Lucien's early work for RCA, this collection does a good job of spanning his whole career, while still keeping the quality level high! Jon's voice never faltered in all the years of his recording work – and as this 17 track set will attest, the range of expression he had was incredible. The package features tunes from Jon's RCA albums, his Columbia recordings, and even one from his later obscure album from the 80s, issued on a small indie label. Titles include "Listen Love", "World Of Joy", "Esperanza", "The War Song", "Rashida", "Dindi", "Hello Like Before", "Laura", "Sweet Control", "Mother Nature's Son", "Laura", "Motherland", and "Luella".

Roger Nichols & OthersRoger Nichols Treasury ... CD
Victor (Japan), Late 60s/1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $38.99
A treasure trove of rare work from the great Roger Nichols – best known for his famous songwriting partnership with Paul Williams, and his Small Circle Of Friends album for A&M! Nichols is one of those guys who hardly recorded much under his own name, since he'd done so much to help other singers – and this set really corrects that lack of Nichols-related sides, by bringing together a range of different projects recorded over the span of the late 60s and the 70s – as well as some very cool commercials he did for companies that include Bank Of America, Kodak, Hertz, and Mastercard! Lots of this work is demo material, but recorded with a great sound – often with the warmth of all of Roger's early A&M sides, and the charm of Williams' earliest material – and the 2CD package features a stunning 69 titles in all – which is a huge addition to the too-small catalog of music by this genius. Titles include the instrumentals "Everything's Cool" and "Straight Ahead", the Nichols tunes "Just Beyond Your Smile", "The Brady Bunch", "It's Hard To Say Goodbye", "Wait & See", "I'll Think About You", and "When All The Love Songs Have Been Written". Also features songs by others – including "The Pictures Of You" by Michael Dees, "I'm Coming Home" by Stan Farber, "Why'd You Wait So Long" by Murry MacLeod, "Love's A River Flowing" by John Bettis, "Just Being Alive" by John Bahler, "Looks Like It's You & Me" by Carol Chase", and lots by Paul Williams – including "Talk It Over In The Morning", "Out In The Country", "Let Him Be King", "Footprints On The Moon", "Mother Lode", and "Travelin Boy". There's loads of cool commercials, too – lots with that warm Nichols harmony style – for more companies that include Wells Fargo, Western Airlines, Mercedes, Hilton, Ford, and others.
