Bob Crewe/The GlitterhouseBarbarella ... CD
Dyno Voice/Varese, 1968. New Copy ... $8.99 13.99
One of the most insanely wonderful soundtracks from the late 60s – filled with weird instrumental touches and sublimely groovy vocals that really match the mad spirit of the film! Although Bob Crewe's best known for his work as a producer for bigger names in the 60s, he really shines here on this set – stepping out with a mad mix of styles that blends 60s adult easy with spacier themes – using primitive electronics and odd studio tricks to capture the cartoony space landscape of Jane Fonda's world in the move. The Glitterhouse sing on a few cuts, in a great mod rock soundtrack mode – and the pacing, timing, and overall presentation of the music here is really great – an audio document that almost feels like a "sonic film" in and of itself! Tracks include "Barbarella", "Ski Ride", "Hungry Dolls", "Entrance Into Sogo", "The Pill", "Smoke (Viper Vapor)", "I Love All The Love In You", "The Labyrinth", "The Sex Machine", "The Chamber Of Dreams" and many more. CD features a total of 22 tracks in all! (Soundtracks, Now Sound) CD

Dick HymanMoon Gas/Moog The Electric Eclectics (with bonus tracks) ... CD
MGM/Omni (Australia), 1963/1969. New Copy ... $16.99 19.99
Incredible work from the great Dick Hyman – two of his hippest electric albums back to back on a single CD, with great bonus cuts too! First up is Moon Gas – one of the greatest albums that Dick Hyman ever recorded – a mad mix of keyboards that more than lives up to its name and its wonderful cover! The album has Dick playing instruments that include electronic organs, keyboards, and ondioline – working in a "moon" oriented style that has lots of bloops and bleeps tripping over very groovy tunes, all augmented by wild wordless vocals by Mary Mayo. The whole thing's kind of like a funky Yma Sumac album, recorded on Saturn – and the whole thing's sublime, from conception, to production, to execution, and even the cover! Titles include "Moon Gas", "Space Reflex", "Maid Of the Moon", and "Desafinado". Moog is one of the coolest, grooviest moog albums you'll ever hope to buy – a wonderful foray into the new world of synthetic sounds, done by pianist Dick Hyman – who was working in a straight jazz format just a decade before! Dick turns out to be a wonderful talent on the moog – very well-suited to the record, with just the right sort of quirky, playful approach to bring the best out of the instrument – at a level that's right up there with the best by Perrey & Kingsley, and maybe even cooler – given that Dick doesn't rely nearly as much on studio tricks! All tunes are pretty bouncy, groovy, and filled with sweet moogy touches – and titles include "The Minotaur", "The Legend Of Johnny Pot", "Improvisation In Fourths", "Topless Dancers Of Corfu", and "The Moog & Me". CD features two great bonus tracks – the very funky "Give It Up Or Turn It Loose" and "Kolumbo". CD

Jumping JacquesSugar & Spice ... CD
Petra (Italy), 1968. Used ... $11.99
A very cool group that's as groovy as their name! The Jumping Jacques were a 60s French vocal group who took elements of other French groups – like The Swingle Singers or Les Double Six – and worked in a mode that was very mod, and very 60s! The tunes on the set sparkle with inventive vocal pyrotechnics – dipping bass parts, floating soprano lines, skipping scatting tenor and alto bits – all coming together in a lovely blend of male and female vocals, dancing lightly with all the charm of Sergio Mendes & Brasil 66. Most tracks are non-verbal – in that the vocals are working in more of a scatting instrumental mode, jazzily grooving on a set of original tunes by leader Jacques Hendrix. Very cool, and very much in the mode of mid 60s Michel Legrand soundtracks, The Gimmicks, and other bits of European grooviness! Titles include "Let Them Eat Cake", "Gossip & Chatter", "Someday We'll Know", "Somehow I Feel I Must Be Dreaming", "Offbeat Fugue", and "Love Me Now". (Vocalists, Now Sound) CD

Victor LundbergOpen Letter ... LP
Liberty, Late 60s. Sealed ... $2.99
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

✨✧ Emilio Aparicio MoogExpansion Galactica ... CD
Mental Experience (Spain), Early 70s. New Copy ... $16.99
Really great sounds from an artist with "moog" in his name – and a fair bit in his music as well! Emilio Aparicio Moog recorded these tracks on the Guatemala scene in the 70s – and the titles were mostly issued as ultra-rare 45s, but are brought together here in one heck of a great album of moogy madness – a set that rivals all the late 60s brilliance of better-known artists like Mort Garson or Jean Jacques Perry – with equally groovy results! Like the best of the moog purveyors of his time, Emilio Aparicio works at a level that's very unique – not just moogy covers of familiar pop hits, but new tunes that really make the most of the space age instrument – at a level that's filled with upbeat, very rhythmic tunes that have the keyboard exploding with analogue charms at every twist and turn. Titles include "La Ceremonia", "Expansion Galactica", "Brujeira", "Bo Bo Bo Beau", "Transfiguracion Del Iniciado", "Paren La Contaminacion Del Aire", "El Misterio De Tiahuanaco", and "Los Visitantes De Sirio".

Stan GetzWhat The World Needs Now – Stan Getz Plays Bacharach & David ... LP
Verve, 1966. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $7.99
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

Jackie GleasonRomantic Moods Of Jackie Gleason (2CD set) ... CD
Capitol, 1950s/1960s. Used 2 CDs ... $4.99
Sublime instrumental work from the great Jackie Gleason – a beautifully-done collection of his classic sides for Capitol Records – music that's definitely steeped in the romantic moods promised in the title! Jackie's got a way with a tune that few other leaders can touch – cool, shimmering horn parts that often have the lush hues of a Kenton arrangement, but which come across with a lot more warmth overall – just the sort of music to set the mood back in the day – and a really strong contrast to Gleason's dynamic persona as a comedian. The package has a beautiful cover, and features 40 tunes that include "It All Depends On You", "Mystery Street", "If He Walked Into My Life", "I'm In The Mood For Love", "Out Of Nowhere", "The Best Is Yet To Come", "The Moonlight", "That Certain Party", "Glamour", "Ruby", "Lover Man/Smile", "The Girl From Ipanema", "Moon River", and "Days Of Wine & Roses".

Marty GoldSkin Tight ... LP
RCA, 1960. Very Good ... $6.99
Pretty skin tight stuff – as Marty and crew play more bongos than you'd ever hear in a beatnik hoedown! The set's a very percussive one, and is one of Gold's better outings on RCA – thanks to the tightly stretched skins of the bongo. Gold arranged all tunes, and some of them are bongo-based updates of work he did earlier. Titles include "Allah's Holiday", "Caravan", "Song Of India", and "Hidustan". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label Living Stereo pressing with deep groove. Cover has some splitting on the top seam and a name in marker on back.)
