✨✧ Richard HarrisTramp Shining ... LP
ABC, 1968. Used Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Pretty stunning work from the team of Richard Harris & Jimmy Webb – a shining point in both of their careers! Harris wasn't much of a singer, and was mostly known as an actor before these two albums. He teamed up with Jimmy Webb as the perfect foil for some of Webb's late sixties song-stories – crafted here into extended arrangements penned and conducted by Webb, who was just a wee lad at the time. The album went onto become a genre-busting superhit, and pretty much burned out the career of both parties involved – but with brilliance like this, you could hardly expect otherwise! The highlight here is the original 7 minute version of "MacArthur Park", but there's loads of other tracks that are great too – and titles include "Didn't We", "Lovers Such As I", "A Tramp Shining", "Paper Chase", and "In The Final Hours".

VariousWe All Love Ella – Celebrating the First Lady Of Song ... CD
Verve, 2007. Used ... $3.99
An all-star tribute to the legendary Ella Fitzgerald – one that features a number of contemporary singers trying to recapture the magic of Ella's best work from the 50s and 60s! We'll be honest in saying that we were a bit suspicious of this one at first, but the quality is surprisingly strong – mostly in an acoustic, swinging, jazzy mode – with arrangements predominantly by Rob Mounsey, and most singers really doing their best to hit a Fitgerald sort of groove. It's interesting to hear some of these vocalists doing their best to match Ella's phrasing, on titles that include "Blues In The Night" by Ledisi, "The Lady Is A Tramp" by Queen Latifah, "A Tisket A Tasket" by Natalie Cole, "Lullaby Of Birdland" by Chaka Khan, "Angel Eyes" by KD Lang, "Reaching For The Moon" by Lizz Wright, "Someone To Watch Over Me" by Gladys Knight, "Do Nothin Till You Hear From Me" by Etta James, and "You Are The Sunshine Of My Life" by Ella Fitzgerald & Stevie Wonder.
