Stan GetzWhat The World Needs Now – Stan Getz Plays Bacharach & David ... LP
Verve, 1966. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $3.99
Stan Getz meets Burt Bacharach – a heavenly combination that brings together two of our most favorite musical talents of the 60s! And while we're at it, we'd also like to mention a third – Chicago soul arranger Richard Evans, who handles all the backdrops for this set – bringing in a groove that you might not expect for tunes by Burt Bacharach – not exactly Charles Stepney at Cadet, but not far, either – a perfect setting for the sparkling, lyrical tone that Getz was hitting at this point in his career. The tunes are familiar, but the blend of talents really keeps things fresh – and with extra contributions from Herbie Hancock on piano and Jim Hall on guitar, you can bet there's plenty going on here. Titles include "Wives & Lovers", "Windows Of The World", "House Is Not A Home", "Walk On By", and "Trains & Boats & Planes". (Jazz, Now Sound) LP, Vinyl record album
(In the textured cover, with a name in pen & some light wear.)

✨✧ Bobby Shad & The Bad MenBobby Shad & The Bad Men ... CD
Mainstream/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... $13.99
The only album to ever credit producer Bob Shad as a leader – even though the man had been behind so many famous records on labels that include Mainstream, Time, and Mercury! This set has Shad taking the hip vibe of the Mainstream label to the forefront – mixing funky jazz and trippier rock touches together beautifully – blending Mainstream's worlds of psych and soul in a tremendous way – as he turns out these fresh new takes on big tunes from the time – all redone here as fuzzy instrumentals! The great Ron Frangipane handled arrangements – and titles include "Whole Lotta Love", "Pinball Wizard", "I Want You Back", "Instant Karma", and "No Time". (Jazz, Now Sound) CD
(Part of the Mainstream Records Master Collection!)

VariousSounds Of The Unexpected – Weird & Wacky Instrumentals From Pop's Final Frontiers ... CD
Ace (UK), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $14.99 19.99
A totally cool collection of really offbeat numbers with a space age sort of theme – tunes that run the gamut from rock instrumentals to electronic pop – with lots of stops along the space in between! The package is right up there with some of the best "themed" collections by Ace Records – not just a superb selection of tunes, but really put together in the best way possible – with thoughtful transitions between the tunes, and a huge booklet of notes and label images – with some text on the late Vicki Fox, who put together this set, and others for Ace in the past. You'll definitely recognize a few names here, but the setting makes them sound really amazing and unique – especially some of the soul, jazz, and blues artists in the mix. Titles include "Waltz In Orbit" by Ray Cathode, "Watusi Zombie" by Jan Davis, "Savage Girl" by Felix & His Fabulous Cats, "War Of The Worlds" by The Atlantics, "Caravan" by Gabor Szabo, "Hot Pot" by The Tornados, "Funky Me" by Timmy Thomas, "Uh Oh" by The Imps, "Flameout" by 101 Strings, "It's Karate Time" by Travis Wammack, "Long Sentence" by The Upsetters, "B'Wana Bongos" by Preston Epps, "Hung Over" by The Martinis, "Music To Watch Space Girls By" by Leonard Nimoy, "Aztec" by Bo Diddley, "Watusie Freeze (part 1)" by Big Walter & The Thunderbirds, and "RFD Rangoon" by The Forbidden Five.
