✨✧ Living Strings, Galt MacDermot, & OthersRock Opera Mix ... LP
RCA/Gilbey's Gin, Late 60s. Used Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A very cool little package – one that has the 60s cocktail crowd moving into the rock opera scene! The album was put together by Gilbey's Gin & Vodka, and features recipies for cool new "rock era" cocktails that include the Afro-Disc, Sunshine, and Wolfbane – plus a record of some of the hipper tracks from the RCA catalog of the time! The overall feel is more groovy than rock – and Hair is the closest you get to a rock opera here – but the whole thing's still plenty nice. Titles include "Superstar" by Living Strings, "I Don't Know How To Love Him" and "Everything's Alright" by Living Voices, "Share The Land" by The Guess Who, "Nature Boy" by Jose Feliciano, "Tommy Overture" by Henry Mancini, and "New Mother Nature" by Friends Of Distinction – plus a few key numbers from the original cast album of Hair! LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some light wear.)

Tom ScottHair To Jazz – A Groovy Jazz & Pop Musical Experience ... LP
Flying Dutchman, 1969. Very Good Gatefold ... $18.99
Reedman Tom Scott always gives us something groovy – especially in his early years, when he could effortlessly blend together jazz and soul, funk and rock, and really come up with something new and unique! Here, Tom's in the best mode of his early work on Impulse Records – serving up one of our favorite versions ever of Galt MacDermot's music for Hair, done with a wickedly sharp groove all the way through! The combo here is a quartet with a great flair for unusual timings, arrangements, and instrumentation – and in addition to Scott's unusual phrasings on tenor, soprano sax, and saxcello (used with a bit of Echoplex!), Roger Kellaway plays piano with some great bell-like tones, alongside drums from John Guerin and bass from Chuck Domanico. Many numbers are quite jazz-based, with very open and hip solo work that recalls Scott's Rural Still Life album – and titles include "Easy To Be Hard", "Where Do I Go", "Hair", "Be In", "The Flesh Failures", and "Aquarius". (Jazz, Now Sound) LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a few light wrinkles in the laminate, but is nice overall.)

✨✧ Peter NeroMidnight Cowboy ... LP
Columbia, Early 70s. Used ... Out Of Stock
A totally excellent album! Sure, Peter Nero could be one of the sleepier piano players of the 60s – but on this little gem, he's playing moog, and it sounds great! Nero's taking moog to the sweet soundtrack groovers "Midnight Cowboy" and "The Windmills Of Your Mind" – which both come out in a dark spooky style, and "Windmills" sounds especially great, as it begins with a moogy breakbeat that would make Perry-Kingsley weep! Moog's also heard on "Be In" and "Let the Sunshine In" from Hair – and the album also includes 4 other numbers from Galt MacDermot's funky musical, like "Aquarius", "Hair", and "Good Morning Starshine". Frank Hunter did the arrangments – and there's a lot of nice funk running through the LP! (Also issued under the title From Hair To Hollywood.) LP, Vinyl record album
(Back cover has some staining.)
