David SevilleMusic Of David Seville ... LP LP format
Liberty, Early 60s. Very Good ... $24.99
David Seville is best known to the world as the genius behind those nutty pop recordings by The Chipmunks – but on this album, he emerges as a pretty darn great arranger on his own, without the help of his furry friends! The album's a mixture of hi-fi/bach pad tunes – with a focus on odd instrumentation, odd arrangements, and kind of a mad Esquivel/Alvin Rey use of different themes. The album's got a number of original tunes – like "Armen's Theme", "Camel Rock", and "The Gift" – but even familiar numbers like "Willow Weep For Me" and "Third Man Theme" are given a nice treatment, very fresh, and very much in the style that keeps us digging for rare loungey gems like this one! There's lots of nice guitar in the mix, too, giving the album a nice modern sound. LP, Vinyl record album

Si ZentnerRight Here Right Now/Rhythm Plus Blues ... CD CD format
Liberty/Vocalion (UK), 1963/1967. New Copy ... $16.99
A pair of overlooked gems from Si Zentner – both from the Liberty Records scene of the 60s! First up is Right Here Right Now – a mod swinger from bandleader Si Zentner – a talent who's always ready to groove with the times – which in this case means that he's got a sweet 60s style that's mighty darn nice! Si's band is a big one, but they've got a lean Liberty Records feel here – really moving nicely over a range of contemporary numbers that are somewhere between jazz and pop instrumentals – probably more of the former, given all the great horn arrangements on the set! Titles include "Sunny", "My Girl", "Double Whammy", "Goin Out Of My Head", "Soul Machine", "I'm On My Way", and "Skootchy". Rhythm Plus Blues has Si Zentner taking on some of the R&B modes of the late 50s generation – but in ways that really retune the style to the swinging big band mode of the Zentner group! Bob Florence handles the arrangements, and creates some great interplay in the horns – and surprisingly, there's a number of cool originals by Si nestled into the set, alongside his own instrumental readings of older R&B hits. Titles include "Simon Sez", "Walkin", "Doggin Around", "Caldonia", "What Am I Living For", "Puddle Jumpin", and "Honeydripper". CD

New Martin DennyExotica Vol 3 ... LP LP format
Liberty, 1959. Sealed ... Just Sold Out!
Sublime late 50s work from Martin Denny – his third album under the Exotica banner, and almost a deeper and weirder album than the other two! The sound here is extremely haunting – even more freed from conventional melody than the rest, and very fixated on the tonal possibilities that could be produced from Denny's unique grouping of percussion, piano, bass, and vibes. There's few tricks or gimmicks on the set – just a spare and other-worldly approach to music that's totally great! Titles include "Manila", "Mama Iti E Papa E", "Bamboo Lullaby", "Ringo Oiwake", "Moon Of Manakoora", "Congo Train", and "Beautiful Kahana". LP, Vinyl record album
(Sealed mono pressing.)

New Victor LundbergOpen Letter ... LP LP format
Liberty, Late 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The other side of the sixties – the Barry Goldwater, Middle America one. The follow-up LP to Victor Lundberg's hit single "An Open Letter to My Teenage Son", a Vietnam-era spoken word track in which a conservative father explains to his son that although rebellion is in the tradition that made America great, "If you burn your draft card, then I have no son!". Loads of conservative rants with music..."Dear Son, you asked my reaction to long hair or beards on young people". Well son, Victor's gonna give you an earful! LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a bit of light wear, with some aging on the back.)

Jerry SunExotic Sounds Of Jerry Sun (red vinyl pressing – with download) ... LP LP format
Bacchus Archives/Dionysus, 1962. New Copy ... $8.99 15.99
Sweet sweet vibes from Jerry Sun – a lesser-known exotic talent from the same generation as Martin Denny and Arthur Lyman – and one who's got an equally great sound as well! There's a surprising amount of jazz in the mix at times – especially when Sun really swings on the vibes – but the overall feel is more in the best exotic instrumental style of the period, particularly that small combo groove forged by Denny and Lyman at the start – with a mixture of vibes, piano, bass, and drums – plus some vocal bird calls as well. The material was recorded in 1962, but never issued at the time – and feels like some lost treasure from the early days of Liberty Records. Titles include "Soulsville", "On Green Dolphin Street", "Desafinado", "Tiki", "Quiet Village", and "This Could Be The Start Of Something Big". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited numbered pressing, on sweet red vinyl – and a bonus download too!)
