Kenny RankinKenny Rankin Album ... LP
Little David, 1977. Near Mint- ... $2.99
A simple title, but a classic album – arguably one of Kenny Rankin's biggest hits of the 70s, but every bit as great as his lesser-known work! Don Costa arranged the set, but the sound is still wonderfully intimate – with a focus on Kenny's vocals and acoustic guitar, steeped in folksy roots, but carried off with plenty of warmer, chromatic tones that have a great dose of jazz in the mix. The core group's a quartet, with electric piano and organ from Wendy Haas – and titles include the megahit "On And On", plus "House Of Gold", "Here's That Rainy Day", "Through The Eye Of The Eagle", "Make Believe", "I Love You", and "While My Guitar Gently Weeps". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear and is bent a bit at the spine.)

Michael FranksArt Of Tea ... LP
Reprise, 1976. Near Mint- ... $24.99
A seminal classic from Michael Franks – one of those records that's almost a whole genre unto itself, and which set a whole new tone for the male voice in American music! The style here is light and jazzy – almost an evolution of modes first begun by Kenny Rankin, and served up here with a similarly compressed production style that really brings out the jazz in the instrumentation. Players include Michael Brecker, Joe Sample, Larry Carlton, and David Sanborn – all sounding great with a bit of added strings from Nick DeCaro. But the real star of the set is clearly Franks – whose light vocals and creative lyrics sound wonderful next to the electric piano on the set. Titles include "Eggplant", "Monkey See Monkey Do", "Jive", "Mr Blue", "Popsicle Toes", "St Elmos Fire", "I Don't Know Why I'm So Happy I'm Sad", and "Sometimes I Just Forget To Smile". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some ring and edge wear, small sticker spots, and a name in pen on front and back. Labels have a name in pen.)

✨✧ Morgana KingNew Beginnings ... LP
Paramount, 1973. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
A completely hip little record from Morgana King – one that takes her amazing voice, and sets it amidst some expansive arrangements that push past jazz to include some trippier 70s styles! The whole session's got a nice mix of the mellow and baroque – with a subtle funky undercurrent at points, and definitely a fair bit more soul than we're used to hearing from Morgana! Arrangements are by Torrie Zito and Bob James – and the production often compresses the vocals in a really cool way – sliding them amidst the instrumentation with a haunting quality that's hard to describe in words, but which makes the album one of King's most breathtaking ever! The back cover has Morgana getting props from Donny Hathaway, Stevie Wonder, Paul Williams, and Kenny Rankin – all names we can certainly trust – and titles include a great version of "We Could Be Flying", "All In All", "A Song For You", "Like A Seed", and "The Sands Of Time & Changes". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has light wear and a cutout hole.)

✨✧ VariousLight Mellow – One Day (3CD set) ... CD
Sony (Japan), Late 70s/1980s. Used 3CD ... Out Of Stock
Step on over to AOR City, and discover some great music you might have missed otherwise – in this fantastic 3CD collection of AOR gems from the 70s and 80s – one that mixes familiar tunes with some real overlooked gems! The collection was put together in conjunction with the fantastic AOR City series of reissues – and features key tracks from those titles and other smooth, sublime pop cuts from the same 70s stretch – the kind of work that might have hit the radio at the time, but which often got lost to the shifting sands of time. Some artists are ones you might know from other work in rock and soul – others are artists who only got a brief chance to reach for the brass ring – getting strong studio help and top-level production that makes them fit right in with the hits here. 57 tracks in all – including "Angel Heart" by Jimmy Webb, "So So Happy" by Valerie Carter, "Personally" by Karla Bonoff, "Nothin You Can Do About It" by Airplay, "I Go Crazy" by Paul Davis, "Only A Lonely Heart Sees" by Felix Cavaliere, "On & On" by Stephen Bishop, "Stephanie" by John Valenti, "I Need You" by Maurice White, "Nightwalker" by Gino Vanelli, "Waiting For A Star To Fall" by Boy Meets Girl, "Don't Talk" by Larry Lee, "Hearts On Fire" by Randy Meisner, "Seeing You" by Jimmy Messina, "Casablanca" by Dane Donohue, "Lazy Nina" by Greg Phillinganes, "Wait For Me" by Hall & Oates, "Next To You" by Dan Siegel with Kenny Rankin, "What Good Is Love" by Bill Champlin, "Runnin & Hidin" by Fools Gold, "You Are" by Niteflyte, "Lovin & Losin You" by Dwayne Ford, "Eldorado Escape" by Far Cry, and "Song For A Sucker Like You" by Ben Sidran. CD
(Part of the great AOR City series from Japan – includes obi!)
