AmanazAfrica ... CD
Now Again, 1975. New Copy 2 CDs ... $7.99 17.98
Wonderfully fuzzy work from Amanaz – one of the trippiest, headiest groups of the Zamrock scene of the 70s! The guitars here are very full and present – not at a hit you over the head jamming label, but with this rich sonic element that has lots of bassy undercurrents – at a level that makes the album a head-nodding gem all the way through – poised perfectly between some of the more psyche styles of the African scene of the time, and some of the more thoughtful singer-songwriter material. The group have a quality that's surprisingly deep – very soulful, and with a subtle power that comes through strongly – thanks to a mostly-English batch of lyrics (although a few tunes here are in their native Bemba.) No cuts are all-out funky, but all have this great slow-funk sort of charm – and titles include "I Am Very Far", "Sunday Morning", "Khala My Friend", "Green Apple", "Africa", "Making The Scene", "Easy Street", "Big Enough" and "Kale". 2CD package features a full bonus "reverb mix" of the album – even trippier!

Robbie BashoSongs Of The Great Mystery – The Lost Vanguard Sessions ... CD
Vanguard/Real Gone, Early 70s. New Copy ... $12.99 13.99
A never-issued album from the guitar genius Robbie Basho – material recorded at the same Vanguard Records sessions that produced his monumental albums Voice Of The Eagle and Zarthus, and every bit as great as the work that appeared on those records – and as the tracks on Basho's Takoma Records albums from the 60s! The set features Robbie doing a bit of his unusual vocalizations, but in a way that's folded in very strongly with his unusual phrasings on acoustic guitar – although with Basho maybe hitting a more familiar folk style at some moments, even though the lyrics are all his own, and have a mystical quality that really matches his work on guitar. There's a really haunting quality to the whole record, and the vocal tunes could easily have Basho right up there with left-field contemporaries, like Fred Neil on Capitol, or Tim Hardin on his early Columbia years – but, mixed with the longform guitar explorations, create a vibe that's completely Robbie's own. Titles include "A Day In The Life Of Lemuria", which is an unusual piano/whistling tune – plus "The Butterfly Of Wonder", "Thunder Sun", "Song Of The Great Mystery", "Thunder Love", "Death Song", "Night Way", and "Katerei Tekakwitha".

✨✧ Matt BerryPhantom Birds ... CD
Acid Jazz (UK), 2020. New Copy ... $13.99 14.98
Completely wonderful work from Matt Berry – an actor that most folks know for his hilarious performances in a number of TV shows – but also a surprisingly strong singer/songwriter, with a down to earth and honest vibe that's completely different than his role on screen! In fact, forget all about Matt Berry on screen – even though we love his work there so much – because this Matt Berry is a completely different individual, one who paints these songs that are often surprisingly dark, but never dreary – and surprisingly honest, both in the lyricism and the execution – which often has Berry singing with a style that's far less ironic than his delivery of his lines. Matt handles most instrumentation – piano, organ, mellotron from his collection of vintage keyboards – plus guitars and harmonica – next to a bit of pedal steel and drums from BJ Cole and Craig Blundell, respectively. Titles include "Man Of Doom", "Something In My Eye", "Intermission", "Hail To The King", "Covered In Clowns", "You Danced All Night", and "Phantom Birds". CD

Bing & RuthSpecies ... CD
4AD, 2020. New Copy ... $14.99 15.99
There's no Bing, there's no Ruth – just a trio headed by composer David Moore, who plays these fantastic lines on Farfisa organ alongside the clarinet of Jeremy Viner and bass of Jeff Ratner! The instrument was maybe used most famously in a setting like this by Philip Glass in the 70s – but Moore's minimalism is quite different – very spacious, and almost subtle – unfolding like the petals of a flower over time, often with lower tones from the instrument mixed in alongside subtle bits of clarinet and bass – so that the whole thing has this warm swell up from the bottom, with a quality that puts it very strongly in the best legacy of 4AD – maybe even with a sound that takes that legendary imprint back to its roots. Beautiful stuff throughout – with titles that include "Badwater Psalm", "I Had No Dream", "Live Forever", "The Pressure Of This Water", "Body In A Room", and "Blood Harmony". CD

✨✧ David BowieMetrobolist (Man Who Sold The World) ... CD
Parlophone, New Copy ... On November 6, 2020
The first truly great David Bowie electric guitar album – an all-out, power-driven set of tracks played by a group that included Mick Ronson and Tony Visconti! Bowie's in prime pre-Ziggy mode here – ripping into tunes that blister with dark energy that are some of the first truly dangerous songs he ever recorded – with this strong undercurrent of mania that follows some of the darker whimsy of his earliest records – set to searing sounds that would forever help Bowie cross over to audiences who might previously have thought him an arty wimp. The set includes classics like "Saviour Machine", "The Width Of The Circle", "All The Madmen", "Black Country Rock", "The Supermen", and the title track, "The Man Who Sold The World". CD

Brother TheodoreFate Conspires With Destiny To Do Me Dirt – 1959 to 1972 ... CD
Omni (Australia), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $16.99 19.99
Completely bizarre work from Brother Theodore – a strange postwar cultural figure who'd arrived in the US from a rescue of the holocaust hellhole of Dachau, then reinvented himself as an offbeat actor and monologist! Theodore's got a very strange voice, one that's partly inflected by his accent, but which mostly comes from the pointed way he presents his word – often with rolling consonants, and this sense of acting, even when speaking – which is what he mostly does on the record, save for some added musical effects and very slight production twists. Theodore briefly worked with Orson Welles, and there's almost a Welles-like sense of creativity and pomposity on these recordings – which were just part of the Brother's calling card, as he spent years doing his act in New York clubs, and also spent some time on the west coast too – a surprisingly strong underground figure. This release brings together the 1959 Coral Records album Theodore In Stereo, plus two tracks recorded for the PIP label in 1972, and one unreleased track – with titles that include "The Willow Landscape", "Quadrupedism", "The Curse Of The Toad", "Lisolatta Bindfel", and "I'm Just Plain Folks".

BushmenBushmen ... CD
Beat Rocket, Mid 60s. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
Great garagey work from The Bushmen – a mid 60s combo from Fresno, CA – and one who reveled in the best gritty modes of the time! The vocals are stark, the rhythms are too, and there's some great swirling organ lines in there amidst all the guitar – a garage/psych blend at times, or more proto-punk at others – especially given the way that lead singer Roger Pollack has a punk-like ability to trade tunefulness for sheer raw power when he's putting over a tune! The group burned brightly, and definitely to strong to sustain – as the 9 tracks here are the only recorded evidence of their existence – titles that include "You Can't Sit Down", "Long Green", "Just Like Me", "Down Home Girl", "You Really Got Me", "The Last Time", and "Hitch Hike".

Glen CampbellGlen Travis Campbell/I Knew Jesus/I Remember Hank Williams ... CD
Capitol/BGO (UK), 1972/1973. New Copy 2CD ... $10.99 16.99
A trio of early 70s albums from Glen Campbell – all of them a lot more obscure than his hits! Glen Travis Campbell has a cover proclaiming that the set is "a new musical path" – and producer Jimmy Bowen works with bigger backings from Larry Muhuberac to use soaring strings next to the acoustic core, in ways that push Glen into some of the more soulful expressions he had to offer. The approach is a bit hard to describe, but it's different both from country roots, and from Jimmy Webb territory – that majestic Glen Campbell sound rising up nicely – on tunes that include "One Last Time", "I Will Never Pass This Way Again", "Sweet Fantasy", "Running Scared", "Just For What I Am", and "The Last Thing On My Mind". I Knew Jesus is a record that continues the further exploration of Glen Campbell's vocal range – with some mellow fluid moments that are awash in deeper trills, mixed with more upfront tunes that do a great job of unlocking more of the country currents in Glen's talents – a great shift, and one that would come on even more strongly in his mid 70s return to fame. The set includes a great version of the Kinky Friedman song "Sold American" – one we maybe like even better than Kinky's – plus "I Take It On Home", "I Want To Be With You Always", "Give Me Back That Old Familiar Feeling", "You're The One", and "On This Road". On the final album, Glen Campbell takes on the music of Hank Williams – but in a way that often has the sort of dreamy haze that goes with the "I Remember" in the title! The songs are all Hank's, but the presentation isn't gritty honky tonk – and instead uses fuller backings with Glen's lead vocals, almost as if the whole thing were done in the mid 60s by Chet Atkins at RCA! Jimmy Bowen's at the helm, but there's backup singers and fuller strings than before – which really changes up the Campbell takes on tunes that include "Cold Cold Heart", "Half As Much", "Your Cheatin Heart", "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry", and "You Win Again".

Jim CapaldiOpen Your Heart – The Island Recordings 1972 to 1976 (Oh How We Danced/Whale Meat Again/Short Cut Draw Blood/bonus material) (3CD/DVD set) ... CD
Island/Esoteric (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy 3CD & DVD set ... $34.99
Three full albums from Jim Capaldi, plus lots of bonus work – and a DVD of live BBC performances too! First up is Oh How We Danced – the first solo album from Jim Capaldi – and a wicked little set that has Capaldi not only working with fellow bandmates from Traffic, but also with some of the best musicians on the Muscle Shoals scene! The combination of both unlock an even more soulful style than you'd expect from any Traffic side project – and provide a perfect focus for Capaldi's great vocals – already crossing over big to a soul scene with his Traffic recordings, but sparking even new interest here with Muscle Shoals rhythms. The sound is wonderful – quite different than Capaldi's bigger hits in later years, and with a rootsy, earnest feel that reminds us that at their roots, all these British acts really got things right at the start – with a freshness that needs to be remembered, even amidst their later cliches. Titles include "Eve", "Don't Be A Hero", "Last Day Of Dawn", "Oh How We Danced", "Open Your Heart", and "Love Is All You Can Try". Next is Whale Meat Again – a record with a beautiful mixing of modes – Jim Capaldi's Traffic-bred, London-styled vocals, and the sweet southern soul grooves of Muscle Shoals – all wrapped together with a sound that's even tighter than Capaldi's debut album! Jim's a big edgier here overall – both in the way he delivers the vocals, and in the lyrics of the tunes – and his singing's underscored perfectly by help from Jimmy Johnson on guitar, Barry Beckett on piano and organ, David Hood on bass, and Roger Hawkins on drums – all of whom create the right sort of warm Muscle Shoals vibe to make Capaldi's music sound wonderfully soulful. Steve Winwood plays a bit of guest organ on the set, and may well help with backing vocals – and titles include the funky "Low Rider" (different than the War tune) – plus "We'll Meet Again", "Summer Is Fading", "My Brother", "It's Alright", and "Yellow Sun". Short Cut Draw Blood is the third solo album from Traffic's Jim Capaldi, and maybe the most obscure of his early work – a set that was done after Traffic had broken up, but still with some strong help from Steve Winwood – working here in an all-star array of London and Muscle Shoals musicians, which includes Barry Beckett, Rebop Kwaku Baah, Pete Carr, Jess Roden, Chris Spedding, and others! Capaldi's easygoing groove and great way with a tune are fully intact – and titles include "Living On A Marble", "Johnny Too Bad", "Goodbye Love", "Seagull", "Keep On Trying", and "Love Hurts". Box set features bonus tracks "Going Down Slow All The Way", "Tricky Dick Rides Again", "Sugar Honey", "Still Talkin", and "Talkin About My Baby". DVD features a Old Grey Whistle Test performance from 1976, with the Jim Capaldi Band – and one more from 1976 with Jim Capaldi & The Space Cadets. CD

Chicken ShackImagination Lady (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Deram/Esoteric (UK), 1971. New Copy ... $14.99
A fantastic album from this legendary British group – a bluesy rock combo who grew up in the same space as Fleetwood Mac and Savoy Brown, but who never fully got their due on this side of the Atlantic! The group here is a unique lineup that only recorded this one album – a trio with John Glascock on bass and Paul Hancox on drums – two players who give leader Stan Webb plenty of space in the spotlight, which means a very strong emphasis on his mindblowing work on guitar! Webb's a musician with the chops of contemporaries Eric Clapton and Peter Green, and you can definitely hear that here – and, like his contemporaries, Stan is also really taking the music way past its bluesy inspirations – using the trio to maybe bring in more of a hard rock vibe, yet never going too far in that direction either. Titles include "Daughter Of The Hillside", "Crying Won't Help You Now", "The Loser", "Telling Your Fortune", and "Poor Boy". CD features bonus tracks – single versions of "Poor Boy" and "Telling Your Fortune". CD

David Clayton ThomasDavid Clayton Thomas/Tequila Sunrise/David Clayton Thomas (with bonus track) ... CD
BGO (UK), Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $15.99
A trio of solo albums from David Clayton Thomas – packaged here with a bonus track too! First up is the self-titled Columbia set David Clayton Thomas – great early solo work the singer who'd rose to fame as part of Blood Sweat & Tears – stepping out here with a sound that's maybe even more soul-based than his music with that famous group! The set features production from Bobby Colomby, of BS&T – and the groove is somewhat similar, but with less horns, and a lot more riffing guitar, keyboards, and other elements used to bring out some of the funkier currents in David's vocals! A few tracks were recorded in Memphis, with guitar from Steve Cropper – and the record even features some arrangements from Claus Ogerman and Jimmy Giuffre. The set includes a remake of of "Magnificent Sanctuary Band" – with a break at the start that's as funky as the original – and other titles include "We're All Meat From The Same Bone", "Sing A Song", "Don't Let It Bring You Down", "Once Burned", "Stealin In The Name Of The Lord", and a surprisingly great take on the Gram Parsons tune "She". Next is Tequila Sunrise – a fantastic solo album from David Clayton Thomas – and a set that still retains the amazing vocals he brought to Blood Sweat & Tears, but which has a completely different focus overall! Clayton-Thomas wrote almost all the songs on the set – and he works here with a tight core group that features William Smitty Smith on keyboards and arrangements, and plenty of guitar from Danny Kortchmar – both musicians who give the whole record a very strong, tight vibe that makes the whole thing feel like it comes from some hip early 70s group. Titles include "Friday The 13th Child", "My Song", "Last Time That She Cried", "The Face Of Man", "Nobody Calls Me Prophet", and "Fallin By Degrees". Next up is another self-titled album – David Clayton Thomas, from 1973 – with David himself handling arrangements, and doing a mighty nice job – getting plenty of sweet keyboards from William D Smith, and strong lead guitar from Domenic Troiano – both of whom echo the funky rock currents in the music. There's a bit of a Memphis rock vibe to the record at times – and titles include "Small Family", "Professor Longhair", "Harbor Lady", "Harmony Junction", and "When Something Is Wrong With My Baby". CD also features the bonus track "Some Hearts Get All The Breaks". CD

Leonard CohenThanks For The Dance ... CD
Columbia, 2019. New Copy ... $7.99 11.99
A much stronger posthumous release from the great Leonard Cohen than we were expecting – definitely up there with the last few albums of his lifetime, the best of which we honestly love as much as the late 60s classics! The charismatic speak-singing poetry on Thanks For The Dance is strong, so enchanting, and these late recordings put to haunting and spare backing by his son Adam are wonderful – in spirit, harking back to the sparest style of his most classic work. If you're a long time fan and were worried by the pre-release press about this one getting an assist from modern heroes and heroines like Beck, Feist and members of Arcade Fire & The National, Adam Cohen wisely keep Leonard's voice looming as large as ever – the guests never stepping out of his shadow. Include "Happens To The Heart", "The Night In Santiago", "Moving On", "Thanks For The Dance", "It's Torn", "The Goal", "Puppets", "The Hills" and "Listen To The Hummingbirds". CD

A great little group, and one that we only know from this one early 70s album on Atlantic – an unusual set that's kind of a mix of rootsy modes with more baroque elements – often with strongly harmonized vocals, ala America – but a very different sound overall! The production is great – full and rich, but never commercial or slick – just the right balance of vocals, guitars, and all the subtle elements that shift in and out of the mix – all with a quality that makes us wonder why these guys never went on to much bigger fame, and a longer string of records. Titles include "Just A Thought", "Cross Country", "A Ball Song", "Tastes So Good To Me", "Extended Wings", "Things With Wings", and "Today". CD

Czerwono-CzarniMsza Beatowa Pan Przyjacielem Moim ... CD
Polskie Nagrania/GAD (Poland), 1968. New Copy ... $9.99
A totally groovy little group from late 60s Poland – one who work here in a "beat mass" of their own creation – a totally rocking album that seeks to remake the Catholic mass in a flurry of fast drums, riffing guitars, and mod keyboards! The territory is nothing new – the Electric Prunes, David Axelrod, Mind Garage, and other acts tried the same thing over in the US – but this one's maybe a bit different, as it's coming more from a beat group sound – so has less of the too-heady energy of some of the rest, and instead explodes with a vibe that's more mod 60s London than you might be expecting! The organ gets in plenty of great moments, and the drums keep things moving strongly – on titles that include "Kyrie", "Gloria", "Graduale", "Credo", "Agnus Dei", "Sanctus", "Communio", and "Introitus" – plus Pastoralki selections "Historia O Boznymn Narodzeniu", "Przjaciele Moi", and "Chwalcie Imie Pana".

Chapter One/Esoteric (UK), Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99
A pair of albums from this very unusual group – plus bonus tracks too! First up is the strangely-titled Wide Open N Way – the first album from Day Of Phoenix – a really unique Danish group with roots in both beat group and psych ensembles, but who come across here with this spare, lean style that's nicely harmonic on both the vocals and instrumentation! There's a warm glow to the lyrics that almost evokes some of the more spiritual currents of CSN, but the group are also a lot more down to earth – and occasionally mix in the odd harder guitar line with the more dominant acoustic guitar that sets most of the scene, and really dominates the instrumentation to focus the flow of the tunes! Titles include "Mind Funeral", "Tick Tack", "If You Ask Me", "Cellophane #1 Cellophane #2", and "Wide Open N Way". The Neighbour's Son has a vibe that's maybe a bit more UK-oriented overall – both in the way the vocals are presented, and in the confidence the group seems to have grown into with their songwriting skills – never too tight or commercial, but focused with a strong energy that really knocks most of the tunes up to the next level. Titles include "Magic Wind", "Drifting", "Zombie", "Paradox", "Use Your Sense", and "Turn Me On". Package features very detailed notes – and bonus tracks that include "Tell Me", "I Think It's Gonna Rain Today", "Chicken Skin", and "Deep Within The Storm". CD

DionRuby Baby/Donna The Prima Donna ... CD
Columbia/Ace (UK), 1963. New Copy ... $8.99 19.99
A pair of Columbia Records classics from Dion – back to back on a single CD! First up is Ruby Baby – a solo debut by Dion DiMucci – working here away from his earlier Belmonts group, and really finding a way to sharpen both his vocals, and his approach to the music! Dion's really crafting his lead strongly on these tunes – emerging partly as a pop act, but also with some of the more sophisticated stylings that a singer like Bobby Darin was hitting as he aged past the teen set – even with slight jazz currents in the mix at times! The title cut was a huge hit for Dion – the classic "Ruby Baby" – and that gem sits here nicely alongside others that include "The End Of The World", "Fever", "The Loneliest Man In The World", "He'll Only Hurt You", "You're Nobody Til Somebody Loves You", "Gonna Make It Alone", and "Will Love Ever Come My Way". On Donna The Prima Donna, Dion really sounds great – stepping away from the straighter pop of his roots, and mixing in a bit of soul, and just a tiny current of the headier sounds he'd unlock later in the 60s! The production style is pop, but the material often goes far past that – into territory that definitely has more mature themes, but still delivered with that Dion DiMucci flair for swinging a lyric in just the right way! And as before, one of Dion's strongest suits is the way that he's able to bring in this subtle current of sadness, all while trying to shake it off with a catchy tune. Titles include "Donna The Prima Donna", "Flim Flam", "Oh Happy Days", "You're Mine", "I Can't Believe", "Be Careful Of The Stones That You Throw", "Troubled Mind", "This Little Girl Of Mine" and "Sweet Sweet Baby". Excellent reissue package – with great sound, and the usual Ace Records attention to notes and details! CD

Island (UK), 1970. New Copy ... $8.99 11.98
A full house, and a strong change for Fairport Convention – working here without founder Ashley Hutchings or vocalist Sandy Denny – but finding their way forward through the new strengths of Richard Thompson! Thompson contributed more songs to this album than before, and also joins the lineup for a new vocal sound – one that, without any female singer in the mix, really gives the group a different feel than before – almost a fresh take on some of the territory they'd been moving through on previous records. The vocals are often understated, but in a way that gives the guitars, mandolin, and fiddle even more power – but in a way that's more rocky than folksy, and we mean that in the best way possible. Titles include "Poor Will & The Jolly Hangman", "Walk Awhile", "Doctor Of Physick", "Dirty Linen", "Sloth", and "Sir Patrick Spens". CD features bonus tracks – including "Now Be Thankful", "Bonny Bunch Of Roses", and "Sir B McKenzie's Daughter's Lament". (Folk/Country, Rock) CD

Reprise/BMG, Late 60s. New Copy ... $13.99 15.98
Really incredible work from the early version of Fleetwood Mac – a set that has them moving past the straighter blues of their roots, but not yet in the smooth territory of later 70s fame – music that's awash in the mindblowing guitar work of Peter Green! The pacing and song structure is great – very fresh, and another example of the way that the group and their contemporaries used blues rock as this surprisingly strong springboard to quickly move into new and inventive territory of their own! Titles include "Coming Your Way", "Show Biz Blues", "Under Way", "One Sunny Day", "Fighting For Madge", "Like Crying", and "Before The Beginning". Great CD version – with the original 14 track UK version of the record, in a book-like cover with new notes!

Capitol, 1968. New Copy 2CD ... $19.99 21.99
A sublime album from the great Bobbie Gentry – and maybe her strongest full-length set recorded during the classic Capitol years! The title's "sweete" is a hillbilly play on the word "suite" – and the album definitely works as an extended suite of tracks – almost a concept album, and one that mixes lots of Bobbie's own tunes with a few well-chosen covers – all set to larger arrangements that feature strings from Jimmie Haskell and horns directed by Shorty Rogers – all while Gentry leads the combo at the core! Later Capitol albums had Gentry doing a lot of covers, and maybe losing her identity a bit – but this set is more of an expansion on the mode she brought to the "Billie Joe" single – with tracks that include "Reunion", "Mornin Glory", "Sermon", "Penduli Pendulum", "Jessye Lisabeth", "Courtyard", "Okolona River Bottom Band", and "Refractions". 2CD version features a brand new stereo mix from the original tapes, the original mono mix of the album, and bonus tracks that include demos of "Mornin Glory", "Sermon", "Jessye Lisabeth", "Louisiana Man", "Refractions", "The Way I Do", and "Feelin Good" – plus an instrumental of "Okolona River Bottom Band", and an alternate take of "Mississippi Delta".

The fantastic debut of Gilgamesh – a super-tight band with ties to other prog acts of the British scene of the 70s – and who here emerge with a vibe that's kind of a later extension of the Canterbury mode! The tracks vary in style and length, and are graced by superb musicianship throughout – a lineup that features Phil Lee on guitars, Jeff Clyne on bass, and Michael Travis on drums – plus lots of great keyboard work from Alan Gowen, who plays Fender Rhodes, clavinet, mellotron, acoustic piano, and a bit of electronics too! There's definitely some jazz elements in the mix, and the record shows just how strongly the evolved Canterbury sound would be tied to American rock fusion of the mid 70s. Amanda Parsons sings on two tracks, but most tunes are instrumental – and titles include "For Absent Friends", "Just C", "Notwithstanding", "Lady & Friend", "One End More/Phil's Little Dance/Worlds Of Zin", and "Arriving Twice".

✨✧ Barry GordonWorld Is Mine – The Pop Recordings 1964 to 1971 ... CD
Teensville (Australia), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Surprising pop treasures from Barry Gordon – a singer who cracked the charts when very young, with a novelty Christmas hit – and also a young actor in a mix of films and TV shows – yet here, a strong singer of pop material – with a wonderfully huge legacy that finally gets proper release on this CD! Barry's voice goes through some nice changes over these years – echoing some Brill Building uptown soul modes at some points, more conventionally poppy at others, and then picking up both strands of folk rock and UK-influenced styles as the 60s move on – a great range that only gets better as the CD moves on. Gordon also increasingly wrote more of his own material, too – especially towards the end of the disc, which features the full lineup from his 1971 Capitol concept album Pieces Of Time. Titles include "The Days Of Pearly Spencer", "Instant Replay Yesterday", "The House That Love Built", "Let Me Try", "Go Back Little Tear", "True Love Can Never Die", "Talk Talk Talk", "A House Built On Sand", "You Are Young", "Conversation", and "Josephine Christopher".
