Petula ClarkPetula Clark A Paris ... LP
Vogue (France), Early 60s. Very Good ... $6.99
A beautiful early album of French songs – sung by English singer Petula Clark! If you don't know this stuff, it's very different than her Brit pop recordings with Tony Hatch from the later years. These tracks have more of a French pop feel, and sound a bit like early stuff by France Gall! Titles include "A Paris", "Sous Les Toits De Paris", "Les Feuilles Mortes", "Symphonie", and "Clopin Clopant". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a bit of light wear, some small stains, and a sticker on the back.)

Jamie Cullum with Nostalgia 77Interlude ... LP
Blue Note, 2015. New Copy 2LP ... $22.99 24.99
The hippest, coolest work we've ever heard from Jamie Cullum – a wonderful collaboration with Nostalgia 77, who bring a lot of deeper jazz tones back to Cullum's music! The members of the group shift from track to track, but really give the whole thing a soulful vibe that's been missing from some of Jamie's work in the past – a move back to his roots in jazz, with a sensibility that almost even steps farther back – and links him to hip 60s British talents like Georgie Fame or Zoot Money. Cullum's voice is wonderful, as always – but it's especially great to hear it in a setting like this, which is quite far from some of the more poppy directions he'd been heading on previous records. Titles include "The Seer's Tower", "Walkin", "Don't You Know", "Interlude", "Lovesick Blues", "Come & Get Me", "Out Of This World", "Make Someone Happy", "Good Morning Heartache", "Sack O Woe", and a version of "Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood" done with Gregory Porter.

Ella FitzgeraldSunshine Of Your Love (180 gram pressing) ... LP
MPS/Edel (Germany), 1969. New Copy ... $44.99
Very cool, very groovy, and one of Ella Fitzgerald's hippest albums of the 60s! The set was recorded in San Francisco in the late 60s, but was issued by MPS in Germany as proof that the label always had an ear for bringing something different out of a mainstream artist. And although live, the album's got a romping, hard grooving style that's filled with plenty of soul – arranged surprisingly by Tommy Flanagan, with a bouncing, bottom-end groove that even gets a bit funky at times! The centerpiece of the album is Ella's funky cover of the title cut – Cream's big hit "Sunshine Of Your Love" – proof that even an old gal can get funky with the right material! Other tracks include "This Girl's In Love With You", "Watch What Happens", "House Is Not A Home", and "Hey Jude". LP, Vinyl record album

Capitol, 1964. Near Mint- ... $5.99
The Four Freshman and Pete Rugolo team up again to bring us a follow up to their hugely successful 4 Freshman & 5 Trombones from 1956. It's not as great as the first record but it still offers some sweet moments and that great Four Freshman sound.

(Rainbow label pressing. Cover has light wear.)

Jackie & RoySing! Baby! Sing! ... LP
Storyville, Mid 50s. Very Good ... $14.99
One of the greatest albums ever cut by Jackie and Roy! This one captures them in the early days – right after they'd left Charlie Ventura, and were beginning to sing and pen some fantastic little jazz ditties on their own. The album features the recorded debut of Tommy Wolf, who would become one of their greatest writers – on the track "Season In The Sun" – plus a number of great tunes by Roy, like "Why Not Admit It", "You Are The One", and "Hook Line And Snare". LP, Vinyl record album
(Red label pressing with deep groove. Cover a small bit of pen on front, and some stamps on back – plus clear tape on the seams. Still a nice vintage copy, though.)

Etta JonesEtta Jones Sings (King) ... LP
King, Late 50s. Very Good- ... $19.99
Very very early work from Etta Jones! The record has a much rawer R&B type sound than her later work – less polished than her years at Prestige, with an approach that's more in the King style used with Lorez Alexandria. Tracks are mostly solos, but sung with a nice bluesy touch – and the group is directed by Don Abney, with guitar by Bill Jennings. Titles include "White Cliffs Of Dover", "People Will Say We're In Love", "Sweethearts On Parade", "Mountain Greenery", "I Thought About You", and "When I Fall In Love". LP, Vinyl record album
(Light marks, but plays great – like most old King pressings! Cover has a split top and bottom seam, and some light wear.)

✨✧ Katie LeeSongs of Couch & Consultation ... LP
Commentary, 1957. Very Good ... $3.99
Fantastic stuff – and a key example of the penetration of psychoanalysis in the US during the postwar years! The tunes here are all vocal parodies of familiar themes from Freud – sung by Katie Lee in a way that's a bit jazz, but possibly a bit folksy too – very playful at times, with the dry wit that you'd get in some of Tom Lehrer's famous records of the same period. Instrumentation is arranged by Bob Thompson, who really emphasizes the whimsy in the tunes – and titles include "The Will To Fail", "Repressed Hostility Blues", "Gunslinger", "Properly Loved", "Real Sick Sounds", "Shrinker Man", and "Schizophrenic Moon". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some wear and a bit of pen.)

Claudine LongetClaudine ... LP
A&M, Late 60s. Good+ ... $0.99
French pop meets LA production – and the result is some of the best work ever recorded by A&M Records – a gently groovy, slightly sexy sound that really helped define the label in its early years! Claudine Longet's got a gentle Parisian style of singing that's perfect, simply perfect, on this first LP – set to lightly groovy arrangements by the great Nick DeCaro, gliding through a host of tunes that encompasses some of the grooviest hits of the decade – from soundtrack numbers to bossa tunes to familiar numbers that sparkle anew with Claudine's brilliance! Titles include "A Man and A Woman", "Wanderlove", "Meditation", "My Guy", "Sunrise Sunset", "A Felicidade", and "Hello Hello". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover is in great shape!)

Claudine LongetLook Of Love ... LP
A&M, 1967. Very Good+ ... $4.99
The genius of 60s pop is hardly summed up better by anyone else than Claudine Longet! This dreamy female singer cut a handful of excellent late 60s albums for A&M – and this gem from 1967 is one of her best! The set's arranged by Nick DeCaro, and produced by Tommy LiPuma – all in a gently grooving mode that takes elements of bossa, jazz, and other A&M pop – and softly fuses it into a perfect backdrop for Claudine's breathy vocals – completely sublime, and a wonderful illustration of the A&M genius at work! Titles include "Think Of Rain", "How Insensitive", "Good Day Sunshine", "The End Of The World", "Manha De Carnaval", and a sublime reading of "The Look Of Love". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear and some light stains.)
Also available Look Of Love (plus bonus tracks) ... CD 13.99

Claudine LongetLove Is Blue ... LP
A&M, 1968. Very Good+ ... $5.99
Always-great work from lovely French singer Claudine Longet – a vocalist with a style that's unlike anyone else we can think of! This one's another sublime blend of French 60s pop and sunny A&M production – arranged to perfection by the great Nick DeCaro, with touches that deepen the album from earlier work – like chorus vocals, more ambitious instrumentation, and even some guest duet vocals from Tommy Lipuma! Claudine is incredible throughout – a masterpiece of gentle understatement – and she sparkles on tunes that include "Happy Talk", "Who Needs You", "Walk In The Park", "Snow", "When I Look In Your Eyes", "Dindi", and "Love is Blue". LP, Vinyl record album
(Vinyl has a mark that clicks a bit on "Holiday".)

LuluMelody Fair ... LP
Atco, 1970. Very Good ... $8.99
Lulu takes a trip down to Criteria Studios in Miami – working at Atlantic Record's new heart of southern soul for the 70s – but coming up with styles that are a fair bit like her previous outing at Muscle Shoals! As on that one, production is by Jerry Wexler, Tom Dowd, and Arif Mardin – and the overall sound's expanded a bit more here – to include rhythm by The Dixie Flyers, vocals from The Sweet Inspirations, and some added horns from The Memphis Horns – all of whom help continue the maturing trend of Lulu's Atlantic years – a new move into soulful styles that's totally great! Titles include "Good Day Sunshine", "Vine Street", "Saved", "Hum A Song", "To The Other Woman", and "Melody Fair". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a small split in the top seam.)

Carmen McRaeMs Jazz ... LP
Groove Merchant, Early 70s. Very Good ... $2.99
A relatively hip set of tracks – similar to some of Carmen's work on Atlantic and Blue Note from the same time, in which she's singing a range of material that goes past her earlier jazz vocal titles, showing an interest in the hipper sounds of the pop realm. The group's a small one, with Zoot Sims on tenor and Bucky Pizzarelli on guitar – and tracks include "You Are The Sunshine Of My Life", "Masquerade", "You & I", "It's The Good Life", and "Livin". LP, Vinyl record album
(Vinyl has a press flaw that plays with some noise on "You're Mine You". Cover has a cutout notch and hole.)

Carmen McRaeTorchy! ... LP
Decca, 1955. Very Good- ... $4.99
Early work by Carmen McRae – and a wonderfully titled set that's certainly Torchy all the way through! Carmen's singing in a lush, romantic style – working with backings from Jack Pleis and Ralph Burns – in a mode that features larger orchestrations, but which still very much has Carmen's vocals at the top of the mix. As was well demonstrated by Carmen in many later recordings, she hardly needs a band to help her set a mood – and on this set, although the orchestra is large, they're there mostly to color in the spaces between the notes, and create more of backdrop for Carmen's evocative vocals. Titles include "But Beautiful", "Midnight Sun", "My Future Just Passed", "Yesterdays", "Star Eyes", "We'll Be Together Again", and "Speak Low". LP, Vinyl record album
(Rainbow label pressing. Cover has some wear, a sticker on front, and some pen on back.)
