Living Strings, Galt MacDermot, & OthersRock Opera Mix ... LP
RCA/Gilbey's Gin, Late 60s. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $6.99
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!

Robert ByrneElectric Hair ... LP
Evolution, Late 60s. Very Good ... $1.99
One of the best versions of the Hair soundtrack you'll find on moog! Robert Byrne's cut some fine albums in his time, but on this little gem, he really grooves it hard with Galt MacDermot's funky score – using all the cool changes in the songs to riff out some great work on the moog. There's a great little combo backing him up, and they've got some tight rhythm that works well in juxtaposition to Byrne's moogy musings. Titles include "Hair", "Three-Five-Zero-Zero", "Easy To Be Hard", "Walking In Space", "Be In", "Frank Mills", and "Donna". LP, Vinyl record album

Dennis CoffeyHair & Thangs ... LP
Maverick, Early 70s. Good+ ... $99.99
A stunner! The record has Coffey playing his trademark fuzzy guitar, along with his early group that included the legendary Lyman Woodard on organ and Andrew Davis on drums. As the title implies, some tracks are versions of cuts from Hair – with great Galt MacDermot grooves like "Let The Sunshine In", "Sodomy", and "Aquarius" – plus other excellent covers and originals, like "Hair & Grits", "Hey Jude", "Do Your Thang", "Iceberg's Thang", "It's Your Thang", and "Electric Thang". Clearly, it's a very thang-heavy LP, with all the funkiness that might imply! There's some excellent drum breaks, and more than a boatload full of fuzzy guitar riffs to groove groove groove you away! (Soul, Now Sound) LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing! Cover has a split top seam, some splitting on the spine and bottom seam, and surface wear.)

James LastHair ... LP
Polydor, Early 70s. Near Mint- ... $6.99
One of the grooviest albums ever from German bandleader James Last – thanks to a set of wonderful tunes penned by Galt MacDermot! The album's all instrumental, and Last brings in some of his own German easy modes to the setting – maybe a bit of brightness on some of the horns here, or some nice keyboard lines there – all at a vibe that's almost more MPS funky at times than any of James' other records from the period! The whole thing's plenty darn groovy – and titles include "Frank Mills", "Let The Sunshine In", "Where Do I Go", "Walking In Space", "Hare Krishna", and "Good Morning Starshine". LP, Vinyl record album
(Canadian pressing.)

Terminal BarbershopHair Styles ... LP
Atco, 1969. Near Mint- ... $0.99
One of the grooviest of the "Hair" tribute LPs, and an excellent batch of funky tracks from Galt MacDermot's classic score. Terminal Barbershop is really just a group of funky studio musicians that includes Jimmy Owens, Joe Farrell, and Pat Rebillot, and they play with a nice tight pop groove on tracks like "Air", "Walking In Space", "Frank Mills", and all the other big hits. LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cutout notch and some sun bleaching along the top.)

✨✧ Mort GarsonElectronic Hair Pieces ... LP
A&M, Late 60s. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of the best Hair records, and a wonderful bit of electronica perfectly in keeping with the mad talents of Mort Garson! Garson's the moogy genius behind so many classic sides of the late 60s and early 70s, and working with the great Galt MacDermot score to hair, he really goes to town – using loads of groovy little sounds, all set up in spare arrangements that have a great late 60s moog sound, with no other nonsense in the mix. Titles include "Frank Mills", "Good Morning Sunshine", "Easy To Be Hard", "Hair", "Walking In Space", and "Three-Five-Zero-Zero". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing – in great shape!)

✨✧ Lalo SchifrinRock Requiem ... LP
Verve, 1971. Used ... Out Of Stock
A bizarrely baroque session – one that's a requiem "for the dead in the Southeast Asia war", and which takes the form of a hippy-dippy mass. Lalo's at the head of the group – leading musical performances by the likes of Tom Scott, King Errison, Mike Melvoin, Howard Roberts, Dennis Budimir, Emil Richards, and other LA studio hipsters, as well as a vocal performance by the Mike Curb Congregation, and lead singer Alexander Saint Charles. The whole thing's a lot more gospel hip than rock, and it's really a lot more like the kind of album you'd catch Galt MacDermot or David Axelrod recording than Schifrin. Titles include "Final Prayer", "Offertory Verse", "Sanctus Benedictus", "Agnus Dei", and "Introit". (Jazz, Now Sound) LP, Vinyl record album
