Michael FranksOne Bad Habit ... CD
Warner, 1980. Used ... $6.99
Warm vocals, jazzy keyboards, and a wonderfully laidback set from Michael Franks – a perfect illustration of the kind of music he could make better than anyone else! Although recorded at the end of the 70s, the set's got a simplicity that few other records of the time could match – a stripped-down and honest quality that really sparkles, even amidst the top-shelf production and studio work supplied by Warner Brothers Records. Arrangements here are by Larry Williams, Clare Fischer, and others – but as before, the main focus is usually on the sweet vocals and keyboards – gliding out warmly over Michael Franks' well-penned and unique compositions. Titles include "One Bad Habit", "Still Life", "Loving You More & More", "Baseball", "Inside You", "Lotus Blossom", "He Tells Himself He's Happy", and "On My Way Home To You". CD

Michael FranksSleeping Gypsy ... CD
Warner, 1977. Used ... $5.99
A really brilliant little record – one of those gems that you've probably passed by so many times because it's ubiquitous, but which never fails to please over the years! Forget any pre-conceived notions you might have about Michael Franks, because at this early point in his career the man is a genre unto himself – working in a unique blend of jazz, pop, and a bit of soul – always served up sparely and with a great deal of understatement, but still filled with plenty of personal spirit on the lyrics. Franks' voice is beautifully compressed into the rest of the instrumentation by Tommy LiPuma – in a style that still holds up wonderfully over the years, and which is set to Claus Ogerman arrangements that make plenty great use of keyboards from Joe Sample of The Crusaders! Tunes are all originals by Franks – and there's some especially great Brazilian touches on the numbers "Antonio's Song" and "Down In Brazil". Other titles include "The Lady Wants To Know", "I Really Hope It's You", "Chain Reaction", and "In The Eye Of The Storm". CD

Michael FranksTiger In The Rain ... CD
Warner, 1979. Used ... $5.99
Another slice of late 70s genius from the amazing Michael Franks – one of the few mainstream artists who was able to hold onto his own voice and course amidst the overwhelming force of the music industry! There's a beautifully mellow feel to the record – jazzy, warm, personal, and heartfelt without sounding cloying at all. Arrangements this time around are by John Simon, and the session features plenty of jazzy work by Ben Riley, Seldon Powell, Bucky Pizzarelli, Flora Purim, Kenny Barron, and many others. Tracks include "Sanpaku", "When It's Over", "Hideaway", "Lifeline", "Satisfaction Guaranteed", "Underneath The Apple Tree", and "Living On The Inside". CD
