WhispersJust Gets Better With Time ... LP
Solar, 1987. Near Mint- ... $6.99
A late 80s winner from The Whispers – one of the few 70s groups who really found a way to keep themselves going strong into the next decade! The album gave the group their super-huge hit "Rock Steady" – possibly their biggest mainstream success ever – and it's got the group working with the team of Babyface and Reid, in a snapping kind of soul that's partially pop, but which almost hints at new jack at points. Titles include "Rock Steady", "I Want You", "No Pain No Gain", "In The Mood", "Just Gets Better With Time", "Love's Calling", and "Give It To Me". LP, Vinyl record album
(NOTE – Cover is stained and wrinkled at the bottom 4 inches, with some stuck-on paper in front.)

✨✧ WhispersLove For Love ... LP
Solar, 1983. Very Good ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Love for Love, but still a pretty groove-heavy set too – one that continues the mix of "dancin and romancin" The Whispers served up on their previous album! Side one is heavy on "dancin" – and features some bass-heavy tunes that are very much in the best mainstream LA soul modes of the time – production by the group and Leon Sylvers, all in a sound that's heavy on basslines and keyboards, but which still has harmonies that are way ahead of most of the group's younger contemporaries! These harmonies come into play even more strongly on the "romancin" side of the record – a batch of ballads that have The Whispers in the mellower territory that first got them started – updated slightly here with an early 80s soul vibe, but sung with proof that the quintet were still at the top of the harmony game. Titles include "Tonight", "Keep On Lovin Me", "This Time", "Had It Not Been For You", "Try It Again", "Lay It On Me", and "Keep Your Love Around". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has staining on the bottom seam.)

✨✧ VariousWhispers – Lounge Originals ... LP
Numero, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $26.99
One of the coolest collections we've seen from the Numero Group in a long time – an assortment of obscure lounge singers and groups who played the Midwest scene in the glory days of the cocktail bar – not exotica acts or jazz combos, but instead the kind of warm and mellow artists you might find working in the dim corner of some shag-laden lounge! These are artists who were clearly brought up in a world of rock first, jazz and other styles second – maybe with a homegrown AOR vibe, but a lot more stripped-down and personal too. The package is very cool – designed like a matchbook cover from one of the clubs, complete with a poster of other matchbooks inside – and artists include The Do's & Don'ts, Jan Tober & Ron Satterfield, Richard Powell, Terri Schmidt, Tom Dae, Nick Gillette, Mike Munoz, James, Mood Mystics, Cleveland Jones, and Blue Eyed Soul.

✨✧ Jackie WilsonWhispers ... LP
Brunswick, Mid 60s. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Wonderful Chicago soul from Jackie Wilson – one of the classic Brunswick albums he recorded in the Windy City – with stunning production by Carl Davis and arrangements by Sonny Sanders! The album's a perfect showcase for Wilson's incredible vocals – soaring out to new heights in this setting – which marks a real change from his Brunswick style of the early 60s. A key part of the record is the choice of songs – including the classic title cut – written by Barbara Acklin, with a haunting quality that really lets Jackie reach a new high on vocals again. In addition to "Whispers (Getting Louder)", other tracks include "I've Gotta Talk to You", "Tears Will Tell It All", "I Don't Want to Lose You", and "(Too Much) Sweet Lovin". LP, Vinyl record album
(Stereo pressing. Cover has light wear.)

John BarryWhisperers ... LP
United Artists, 1966. Sealed ... $14.99
John Barry did the score for this dark British film starring Dame Edith Evans as an elderly woman slowly succumbing to the "whispers" of old age. The music is far different than Barry's Bond work, with more of a sophisticated orchestral sound – filled with dark brooding passages, occasionally punctuated by jazzier moments – which act as a nice sort of counterbalance! The score is a great step for Barry – really showing a new level of sophistication that's light years from his earlier small combo instrumental work. Titles include "Are You There?", "Sticks & Stones", "Nobody & Nothing", and "Three Attackers". LP, Vinyl record album
(Stereo pressing, still sealed, with a small hole in front from sticker removal.)

Jarvis CockerChansons D'Ennui Tip Top ... LP
Abkco, 2021. New Copy ... $25.99 28.99
A really cool project from Jarvis Cocker – a set that's inspired by the Wes Anderson film The French Dispatch, with Cocker singing in French throughout – and at a level that really opens up his well-known love of some of the best pop modes of the 20th Century! Jarvis often whispers as much as he sings – taking a page from the book of Serge Gainsbourg – but the album's also not just a slavish rehash of French modes from the past, as some of the arrangements are a bit more contemporary – and offer up a a nice way to transform songs originally associated with Serge Gainsbourg, Dalida, Francoise Hardy, and other French singers from years past. Stereolab's Laetitia Sadier guests on "Paroles Paroles" – and other titles include "Requiem Pour Un Con", "Aline", "Elle Et Moi", "La Tendresse", "Dans Ma Chambre", "Il Pleut Sur La Gare", and "Amour Je Te Cherche".

Pierre HenryMalefices ... LP
Cacophonic (UK), 1961. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 26.99
A rare 60s soundtrack from electronic genius Pierre Henry – and a record that features some of his spookiest sounds of the decade! Side one is full of music used in the film – and much of it is very spare, with lots of low-end electronic textures – especially some of those sighs and whispers that Henry was able to coax out of his early equipment before anyone else! There's a few slower keyboard passages, too – but these are also pretty murky and dark as well. Side two brings in a few extracts from other larger Henry compositions – but with a spirit that certainly fits the needs of the record as well. Titles include "Theme De Catherine", "Scene De La Trappe", "Apres Le Mort", "Generique", and "Catherine Malade". LP, Vinyl record album

Carrie LucasPortrait Of Carrie ... LP
Solar, 1980. Near Mint- ... $2.99
Smooth disco grooving from Carrie Lucas – surprisingly soulful stuff, and handled with some wonderfully tight production by Dick Griffey, the genius behind the sound of Solar at the end of the 70s! Carrie's really moving past the cliches of earlier work here – stepping into a solid blend of pop, soul, and club. Titles include "Keep Smilin", "It's Not What You Got", "Lovin Is On My Mind", and "Use It Or Lose It" – plus "Just A Memory", which is a duet with the Whispers. LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some ring and edge wear and a small spot of pen on front.)

✨✧ VariousStars Of Dore – Los Angeles' Group Soul Sound ... 7-inch
Dore/Kent (UK), Late 60s. New Copy (pic cover)... Out Of Stock
A special set of soul from legendary LA indie label Dore Records – home to some of the finest 60s sides on the west coast! Dore had a few key groups at the time – a young Whispers, and the excellent Superbs – but also cut work by some other great artists too – all with a level of care and class to match the best soul sides coming from New York or Detroit at the time! The Dore approach manages to have a sparkle without losing any sort of edge – careful production and instrumentation, but a real respect for the voices in the lead, too. This style works especially well with groups – as you'll hear on this four track set – which features the cuts "The Big Hurt" by The Superbs, "You Really Never Know Til It's Over" by The Vel Vettes, "Oh How I Love You" by Little Johnny Hamilton & The Creators, and "Nothing Lasts Forever" by The Natural Resources. 7-inch, Vinyl record
