Joanie SommersFor Those Who Think Young ... CD
Warner/Collectors Choice, 1961. Used ... $8.99
Joanie Sommers thinks young here – not in a teen pop sense, but in a style that has plenty of youthful variety in the mix! The album's served up in two different modes – side one is a big band side, with backings from the great Marty Paich – and side two is a live performance, which shows a sweet set of Joanie that's a bit different than her work in the studio! Paich is great on the jazz sides – giving the music a very groovy feel that pushes past the crossover modes of some of Sommers' other records, and which really helps Joanie sound her best. Live tracks also feature a jazz band, but one that's a bit more relaxed – and Sommers' vocals have this quality that's even more personal in the spontaneous setting. Titles include "Round Midnight", "Hey Jealous Lover", "I Feel Pretty", "Why Shouldn't I", "Everything I've Got", "My Ship", and "Out Of This World". CD

Joanie SommersPositively The Most ... LP
Warner, 1959. Very Good- ... $6.99
A great little record that's way more jazz than some of Joanie Sommers' other albums – thanks to arrangements from Marty Paich and Tommy Oliver – both of whom help things stay lively, even when sweet – and almost give the album a similar feel to some of the best Bethlehem or Mode label jazz vocal sides of the 50s! Joanie's got none of her pop trappings here – and her vocals are nicely deep and mature – really feeling out the songs with a deeply personal vibe, and way more grown-up than we might have expected. The album's a real standout from Sommers' too-short career – and titles include "What's New", "My Heart Belongs To Daddy", "Something I Dreamed Last Night", "Oh But I Do", "That Old Devil Moon", and "So In Love". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original grey label deep groove pressing.)

Joanie SommersSommers' Seasons ... LP
Warner, 1963. Near Mint- ... $11.99
Joanie Sommers takes on the seasons of the years – in a sweet little concept album that's almost her equivalent of Julie London's famous Calendar Girl record! Stan Applebaum's on hand to help with arrangements, and his styles here are a mix of jazzy backgrounds and some fuller, lusher styles that still have plenty of space for Joanie's vocals – and Sommers definitely shows a strong move away from pop, into some more mature modes that really fit the right mood for each season-themed track on the set. Titles include "Summertime", "Autumn Serenade", "Early Autumn", "June Comes Around Every Year", and "Autumn In Rome". LP, Vinyl record album
(Mono pressing. Cover has light wear and some staple holes in one corner.)

✨✧ Joanie SommersCome Alive ... LP
Columbia, 1966. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
Really groovy work from singer Joanie Sommers – an overlooked gem recorded after her initial albums for Warner Brothers, and put together with some mighty cool arrangements from the great Mort Garson! Joanie's lost all her little girl pop modes here – and instead really comes across with the adult charm of a jazz singer – reaching out with some surprisingly deep tones on the mellower cuts, and showing a great sense of swing on the groovers – all at a mode that really takes her past the style of the early years! Mort's backings are great – as rich in jazzy tones as someone like Marty Paich, but also touched with some of the unusual inflections that always make Garson's music so great. Tracks include "I'm All Smiles", "Girl Talk", "You'd Better Love Me", "You Take What Comes Along", "Watch What Happens", "Too Late Now", and "Sunday In New York". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original 360 sound stereo pressing! Cover has light wear, and back has some light staining near the top.)
