✨✧ Bobby VintonVery Merry Christmas – The Complete Epic Christmas Collection ... CD
Epic/Real Gone, 1964. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Pure pop from the Polish prince – a classic Christmas set issued during the height of Bobby Vinton's 60s years on Epic Records! The album's got this quality that makes similar use of Vinton's vocals as some of the Johnny Mathis magic on similar Christmas records – a style that still echoes the clarity and punch of his pop recordings, but also brings in a bit of majesty befitting the season – cast in fuller arrangements from Stan Applebaum, Ray Ellis, and Hugo Winterhalter! The song selection is surprisingly nice – with some unusual songs that make the album a real standout – including a great version of Burt Bacharach's "The Bell That Couldn't Jingle", plus "Dearest Santa", "The Greatest Gift", "Peppermint Stick Parade", "Three Wise Men Wise Men Three", "The Christmas Tree", "Christmas Angel", and "Christmas Chopsticks". CD features the full Very Merry Christmas album – plus bonus tracks "My Christmas Prayer", "Silver Bells", "Winter Love", "O Holy Night", "Kissin Christmas", and "Christmas Eve In My Home Town".

✨✧ Georgie FameBallad Of Bonnie & Clyde ... LP
Epic, Late 60s. Very Good ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the few American albums ever issued by Georgie Fame – a great set of tracks from his early CBS years, put together with a package that was bound to appeal to US fans digging the Bonnie & Clyde movie! The work here is a hip mix of jazz, soul, and R&B styles – all served up with that Georgie Fame charm that made his music unlike anyone else's at the time. And although we're not sure, it appears that there's a few tracks here that might not have been issued on LP back in the UK – as the set list features 11 tracks that include "Mellow Yellow", "Bullets La Verne", "This Is Always", "Side By Side", "Blue Prelude", "Someone To Watch Over Me", "Ask Me Nice", "When I'm Sixty Four", and "The Ballad Of Bonnie & Clyde".

Tony PerkinsTony Perkins (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Epic (Japan), 1957. Used ... $14.99
A really wonderful first album from Anthony Perkins – cut years before he shocked the screen in Psycho, at a time when he was arguably more committed to his role as a singer! Perkins is surprisingly great throughout – with a mellow, masculine approach that's a bit like Matt Dennis at the time – never overdone, but with just the right sort of inflections to really personalize the music. Tony never tries to belt it out of the park, and that's what we really like about the record – in that he's a much more honest, understated singer – a nice contrast to some of the more emotive talents on the charts at the time. Marty Paich provides the backing – in a great jazzy style that's similar to his work with Mel Torme – and titles include "April Fool", "Hit The Road To Dreamland", "How Long Has This Been Going On", "But Beautiful", "I Wish I Knew", "Accidents Will Happen", and "Better Luck Next Time". CD features 7 more bonus tracks too – including "If You Were The Only Girl", "If You'll Be Mine", "Melody For Lovers", "Fool In Love", and "A Little Love Can Go A Long Long Way". CD
(Out of print, 2014 Japanese pressing – includes obi.)

Lou RawlsLove All Your Blues Away ... LP
Epic, 1986. Near Mint- ... $1.99
The voice of Lou Rawls is wonderful in so many different settings – in early gospel work with the Pilgrim Travelers, in 60s soul with HB Barnum and David Axelrod, and even hitting a Philly groove in the late 70s! Here, Lou takes on a whole new sound – working with more of an 80s soul approach set up by Jay Gradon and David Foster – smooth, but never soppy – and with nicely punctuated rhythms that have a midtempo stepping quality on most numbers – all to open up a new sort of groove for that magical Rawls vocal sound! Lou also brings some jazzy styles to play – almost previewing his work to come in the next few years – and titles include "Change Your Mind", "Are You With Me", "Love All Your Blues Away", "It Never Entered My Mind", "Learn To Love Again", and "We'll Be Together Again".

✨✧ Betty CarterSocial Call ... LP
Columbia, Mid 50s. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great little set that brings together some of Betty Carter's rare vocal recordings for the Epic label – including a handful that were unreleased until the issue of this album! There's a total of 11 tracks in the set – with 6 from the Meet Betty Carter and Ray Bryant album, which features piano by Bryant, arrangements by Quincy Jones, and some excellent vocals by Betty. The other stuff's even better, though – as it's arranged by Gigi Gryce, whose cool floating style is a perfect one for Betty's incredible voice. Titles include "Social Call", "Tell Him I Said Hello", "Frenesi", "Runaway", "Thou Swell", "The Way You Look Tonight", and "Tell Him I Said Hello". LP, Vinyl record album
(White label promo. Cover has a creased corner and a promo stamp.)
