Glen CampbellGentle On My Mind/By The Time I Get To Phoenix ... CD
Capitol/BGO (UK), 1967/1968. New Copy ... $8.99 16.99
A pair of Capitol Records classics from Glenn Campbell – back to back on a single CD! First up is Gentle On My Mind – an insanely wonderful early album from Glenn Campbell – the kind of music that's not really rock, pop, or country – but instead a unique summation of all, at a level that only Campbell could do this well The album kicks off with the sublime pop hit "Gentle On My Mind" – one of those jangly tunes that we could listen to forever – and then soars into a beautiful blend of tunes from different sources, including covers of Nilsson's "Without Her", Rod McKuen's "The World I Used to Know", Jimmie Rodgers' "It's Over", and Donovan's "Catch The Wind" – as well as the huge hit "Mary In The Morning". Glenn's got a hell of a voice – and it sounds great on all the tracks! By The Time I Get To Phoenix begins with Glenn Campbell's amazing take on the title tune by Jimmy Webb – a pure moment of 60s genius! The pairing of Glen Campbell and Jimmy Webb is probably one of the greatest ideas ever in the history of pop music – as you'll hear on the album's title track, "By The Time I Get To Phoenix". Glen's original hit version of the song – written by a wee Jimmy at a young age – forever cut the way for his unique blend of pop, country, and easy vocal styles. The tune also kicks off this pretty nice little album of tracks that features great lesser known numbers, including some surprisingly great country covers. Titles include "Back In The Race", "My Baby's Gone", "Tomorrow Never Comes", "Bad Seed", "Love is A Lonesome River", and "I'll Be Lucky Some Day". CD

✨✧ PilotPilot – The Albums (From The Album Of The Same Name/Second Flight/Morin Heights/Two's A Crowd/bonus tracks) (4CD set) ... CD
EMI/7T's (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy 4CD ... Out Of Stock
Sharp hooks, huge melodies, and 70s guitar pop greatness from Pilot – a genius pop group who only gave the world a handful of records, all of them pretty darn great! From The Album Of The Same Name includes their signature tune, "Magic" – and it's one of those songs everyone knows, whether or not they no who made it – but Pilot soars all around on these tunes. The guitars have punch, but the falsetto vocals are the main cabin of this vessel – and it's grand 70s soft rock of the first order! Other tracks include "Just A Smile", Lucky For Some", "Girl Next Door", "Sooner Or Later", "Never Give Up", "Sky Blue", "Never Give Up", and "Over The Moon". Second Flight is the excellent second album from Pilot, really perfecting the guitars, keyboards and vocals and hooks formula that shot them into the pop consciousness a year or so earlier – probably their best album ever! The opener "You're My No 1" is so catchy, we can hardly believe it's not a throwback pop radio staple, and the record has a few of tracks nearly as grand. The vocals & harmonies are better arranged, and the guitars and keyboards are in that great comfort zone between the glam pop of the previous couple years and the new wave pop to come. Somewhat silly bubble gum lyricism, sure, but it's tasty stuff! Other tracks include "January", "Love Is", "Call Me Round", "To You Alone", "Passion Piece", "Dear Artist" and more, plus the bonus demos "You're Devotion", "Love Is", "January" and "Lady Luck". Morin Heights is later work from 70s soft rock tunesmiths Pilot – a couple years on from their biggest hit, but still making gloriously catchy tunes! The hallmarks of their earlier stuff is here, with some twists & turns. The lyrics are the kind of lovestruck or lovelorn naivete that's cloying to some, and hopelessly endearing to others – relying more this time out and an overall catchiness than huge choruses and hummable singles. We'd fly with these guys anytime! Titles include "Hold On", "Canada", "First After Me", "Steps", "The Mover", "Penny In My Pocket", and "Maniac". Two's A Crowd is the last full 70s album from Pilot – just a duo by this point, but working with all the punch and panache of their early records! As before, their ability for hook-heavy tunes is amazing – as there's so many numbers here that could have been huge AM radio hits, but which also have some surprisingly thoughtful lyrical touches, and arrangements that are simple, but which really pack a hell of a punch. Titles include "Monday Tuesday", "Big Screen Kill", "Creeping Round At Midnight", "Library Door", and "Mr Do Or Die". CD features lots of related bonus tracks – including "Pamela", "Ra Ta Ta", "Just Let Me Be", "Maniac", "Us", "Lady Luck", "No Ties No Strings", "Are You In Love", "Just A Smile", and "Stop & Let Go".

Ray VernonAll Wrays Lead To Rock – The Link Wray Connection ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $16.99 18.99
That's Ray Vernon, not Vernon Wray – but both names are correct, as Ray's the brother of guitar giant Link Wray – and works here under an odd variation of his family name, but on an equally raw set of vintage rockers! Ray's a singer, but also a guitarist – and brother Link joins in on a number of these tracks with the kind of moody raw twang that made his famous instrumentals so great – as both of the brothers move through a surprisingly rich array of indie singles from the end of the 50s and start of the 60s – shifting in contributions, so that one track might have the guitar right up in the mix, another might have a vocal. There's a whopping 34 tracks in all – and detailed notes that unlock the mystery of these tunes – material that includes "Hold It", "Big City After Dark", "Evil Angel", "Vendetta", "Danger One Way Love", "I'm Countin On You", and "Roughshod" by Ray Vernon with The Raymen – plus "Teenage Cutie" by Lucky Wray, "Flirty Baby" by The Wraymen, "You Can't Make Me Doubt My Baby" by Bunker Hill, "A Brand New Love" by The American Teens, "So Young" by The Dial Tones, "Watch Yourself" by The British Walkers, "Boo Hoo" by Marvin Rainwater, and the cuts "Window Shopping", "I'll Be So Good To You", and "The Freeze" by Link Wray.

✨✧ VariousGonna Shake This Shack – From The Vaults Of Decca & Coral Records ... CD
Decca/Bear Family (Germany), Late 40s/Early 50s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Rare hillbilly grooves from Decca Records – the kind of killer pre-country material that was not only a huge influence on rock and roll, but which will also show you that Elvis and Sun Records weren't the only people who'd figured out this kind of groove back in the 50s! The tracks are all upbeat, all very groovy, and filled with lots of wit and sweet instrumental touches – really moving the older modes of hillbilly music into the postwar years, often with a strong electric or steel guitar line instead of a fiddle or other stringed instrument! This is the sort of work that's been compiled on dodgy cheapo collections for years – but the Bear Family treatment here is superb – with great notes and wonderful sound, for titles that include "Pan American Boogie" by Lonnie Glosson, "I'm A Ding Dong Daddy" by Jimmy Atkins & His Pinetoppers, "Hesitation Boogie" by Hardrock Gunter, "I Mean I'm Mean" by Roy Duke, "Happy Go Lucky" by Autry Inman, "Blue Ribbon Boogie" by Chuck Murphy, "I'm Just Here To Get My Baby Out Of Jail" by Rusty Keefer, "Empty Seat In The Bar Room Booth" by Gene Stewart, "Inchin Up" by Tabby West, "Sixty Minute Man" by Roberta Lee & Hardrock Gunter, "Guitar Shuffle" by Hank Garland, and "Pretty Little Dedon" by Tabby West. 30 tracks in all! (Folk/Country, Rock) CD
