Neon PhilharmonicBrilliant Colors – The Complete Warner Bros Recordings (Moth Confesses/Neon Philharmonic/singles) ... CD
Warner/Wounded Bird, 1969. New Copy 2CD ... $8.99 18.98
A pair of amazing albums – and a huge amount of bonus material too – all from one of the coolest groups on Warner Brothers at the end of the 60s! First up is the record The Moth Confesses – one of our favorite albums ever from the genius moment of late 60s Warner Brothers – a set we'd rank right up there next to our favorites by Van Dyke Parks and Harper's Bizarre! The set's billed as a "phonograph opera", written by Tupper Saussy – and it's served up with these fantastic arrangements that are ambitious, but nicely handled, too – with lots of groovy currents that keep the whole thing far from soppier territory of cats like Rod McKuen, and always done with that great sense of wit that makes this Warner era so great! There's definitely a few tuneful tracks that could spin as Sunshine Pop hits – but the whole thing's really better taken as a whole, as the way everything comes together with a sense of mood and tone is completely sublime – really a lost aesthetic, and one that deserves new discovery all these many years later. Titles include "Morning Girl", "Brilliant Colors", "Little Sparrow", "The Last Time I Saw Jacqueline", "Cowboy", and "The New Life Out There". Next Is Neon Philharmonic – the second sublime album from Neon Philharmonic – and one that seems to go even deeper than the first in its blend of ambitious musical themes and mature lyrical ideas! The presentation here is even more symphonic than on the first record – but at a level that's never soppy or sleepy – as there's a gentle groove on most tracks, loping around in these really lovely modes that make the tunes sparkle and glisten with the best sort of late 60s Warner Brothers wit! There's this wonderful mix of longing, nostalgia, and a kind of new vision for post-60s adulthood to the record – very hard to describe, but completely wonderful – at once completely heartfelt, but also with a great sense of distance on itself. Titles include "Long John The Pirate", "Do You Remember Dresden", "You Lied", "Forever Hold Your Peace", "Harry", and the wonderful "F Scott Fitzgerald & William Shakespeare". The 22 bonus tracks are especially amazing – rare singles, b-sides, and even some radio spots too – a huge amount of added genius from this incredible group. Bonus titles include "Letters Crossing", "Jody", "Better Times", "A Little Love", "Flowers For Your Pillow", "Snow", "Clouds", "To Be Continued", and "Keep The Faith In Me". (Rock, Now Sound) CD

Yma SumacMambo! ... CD
Capitol/Right Stuff, 1954. Used ... $2.99
Quite possibly our favorite album ever by the enigmatic Yma Sumac – thanks to some lively arrangements by Billy May, who gives the set a swinging jazzy groove! As you might guess from the cover, the style here is more in a Latin jazz mode than some of Yma's other more ethereal work – and that style turns out to be a wonderful fit for Sumac's incredible vocals – creating a batch of driving tunes that swing nicely, yet still have a spooky exotic sound on the top! Titles include "Bo Mambo", "Taki Rari", "Goomba Boomba", "Malambo No 1", and "Five Bottles Mambo". CD

✨✧ Jay Richford & Gary Stevan (Brugnolini/Torrosi)Feelings (with bonus CD) ... LP
Carosello/Schema (Italy), 1974. New Copy LP & CD (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A legendary sound library set from the 70s Italian scene – exactly the kind of record that got so many folks digging for sound library funk so many years ago! The record's a masterpiece of funky rhythms, jazzy instrumentation, and warmer touches – served up with plenty of Fender Rhodes in the mix, plus sweet flute lines, wah wah guitar, and just the right use of strings to give the whole thing almost a blacksploitation vibe at times! The set was billed to the team of Jay Richford and Gary Stevan – but it's actually the product of better-known sound library maestros Sandro Brugnolini and Stefano Torossi, who work here at a level that's at the top of their powers. There's almost a cop/crime vibe to the record at times – and although some instruments solo at points, the real groove lies in the tight vamping of the orchestra – which hits all the right notes to really send the whole thing soaring – often with a nice use of tone and color too! Titles include "Flying High", "Fearing Much", "Going Home", "Running Fast", "Walking In The Dark", and "Feeling Tense". (Sound Library, Now Sound) LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Sandro Brugnolini/Stefano TorossiMusica Per Commenti Sonori (with bonus CD) ... LP
Carosello/Schema (Italy), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
An Italian funk double-header – a sweet little set from the end of the 60s, and one that features killer cuts from both Sandro Brugnolini and Stefano Torossi! We love either artist on their other own records, but there also seems to be something about putting them together here that makes them even better than before – certainly funkier, as the album's full of the kind of sharp, hard-grooving titles that first made us fall in love with sound library records in the first place! The date of the album's 1969, and both musicians make nice use of psych elements in their instrumentation – adding a bit of fuzz, wah-wah, or trippy guitar in just the right spaces – never going over the top, or getting too indulgent – but just moving in a groove that's tightly jazz funky at the bottom, and maybe a bit freaky at the top. Wonderful work throughout – and titles include "Sweet Beat", "Repetition", "Starter", and "Makkaresh" by Stefano Torossi – and "Wawa", "Motuproprio", "Polyphony", and "Flyer" by Sandro Brugnolini.

✨✧ Xavier Cugat & His OrchestraMambo! ... LP
Mercury, Late 50s. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
Classic Cugat mambos, with a nice hard sound that would sound right in the Catskills or the Palladium! The whole darn thing's got that nice "umph" feel that you'll find in his best 50s recordings – and tracks include "Park Avenue Mambo", "Sun! Sun!", "Mambo Mania", "Babalu", "Oooh Listen Baby", and "Mambolette". (Latin, Now Sound) LP, Vinyl record album

Horst JankowskiBlack Forest Explosion! ... LP
Motor (Germany), Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $14.99
Great collection featuring the best work of this groovy German piano player! Although he made some snoozy records in his day, this comp is definitely not one of them! Loads of great groovy funky piano tracks, with a cool european feel, and nice electric grooves. Some of these tracks came out in the U.S., but many of them didn't. Includes "Lazy", "Dreamflight", "Mas Que Nada", "Slick", and "Pink Balloon". Put together by the same folks who did the Lalo Schifrin comp, so you know the sound is right! Groovy package, too. LP, Vinyl record album

Peggy LeeSounds Of The Seventies ... LP
Capitol/Sylvania, Early 70s. Very Good+ ... $3.99
A hip collection of tracks from Peggy Lee – recorded for Capitol during the late 60s, but issued in this special package that was a limited edition one put out by Sylvania in the early 70s. The standout cuts are Peggy's awesome versions of "Spinning Wheel" and "Sitting On The Dock Of The Bay" – monster groovers that puts her in the company of Doris or Shirley Bassey, as the cuts have a fantastic break and a great groove throughout! We totally dig the other stuff, too – and titles include "Release Me", "Manana", "Watch What Happens", and "Alright, Okay, You Win". (Vocalists, Now Sound) LP, Vinyl record album
