One of 2 ESP sessions by Patty Waters – one of the most groundbreaking vocalists of the 60s, and a singer with a style that mixed equal parts jazz and folk!

A surprising treasure from Margaret Whiting!

SSJ (Japan), 1960. New Copy ... $22.99
Andy Williams like you've never heard him before – singing jazz, and doing a hell of a job of it, too! Sure, Andy was known as a mainstream singer from his TV show of the 60s – but he could also work well in a jazz mode, too – especially with great small combo backing like this! ... read more CD

BMG, 1963. Used ... $2.99
A killer album that's one of Joe's best! Unlike some of his other records as a vocalist, in which the arrangements are a bit too cluttered to swing, this nice relaxed live set has Joe hitting a very soulful groove, and stepping out nicely on cuts like "Gravy Waltz", "Come Back ... read more CD

One of the nice records made by Joe during his funky comeback of the late 60s/early 70s.

One of Joe's excellent albums from the 60s for RCA – set to backings from Jimmy Jones and Oliver Nelson, both of whom nicely update Joe's sound for the 60s!

Blue Note, 1968. Used ... $9.99
A funky big band album, recorded by Thad Jones & Mel Lewis, with the great Joe Williams on vocals! The record is one of the most sought-after by the team – probably because it includes the hard breakbeat version of "Get Out of My Life Woman" that's been sampled often over the ... read more CD

Early work from Jimmy Witherspoon – but the kind of sides that show that Jim had something different to offer, even from the start!

Harry Nilsson may be best-remembered for a hit that he sang penned by Fred Neill – but the man himself was a hell of a songwriter in the 60s – with an incredible approach to a tune that was unlike any of his contemporaries!
