✨✧ Michael FranksSleeping Gypsy ... CD
Warner, 1977. Used ... Out Of Stock
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

Rickie Lee JonesRickie Lee Jones (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Warner (Japan), 1979. Used ... $34.99
Sure, Rickie Lee Jones went onto become a bit of a cliche in later years, but this early album's still got an undeniable power – and was a great breath of fresh air, at a time when it seemed like most of modern music was forgetting its roots! What is it with the LA scene from the 60s onward that they always seemed to find their best inspiration in the past? Artists like Harpers Bizarre, Randy Newman, Tom Waits and others set the stage for a record like this – by reaching back into older styles and bringing them forward with a more contemporary spin. (And why was it that LA seemed to be the center of this mode – and New York, Chicago, and other cities never worked that way?) Rickie serves up a nice assortment of older-styled vocal cuts – performed with a mixture of traditional and 70s jazz backings, supported by some extra-classy Warner production from Lenny Waronker. Titles are all originals, but done with an older hipser sort of feel – and titles include "Easy Money", "Chuck E's In Love", "Young Blood", "The Last Chance Texaco", "Danny's All Star Joint", "Weasel & The White Boys Cool", "Company", "Coolsville", and "On Saturday Afternoons In 1963".

Anita KerrBert Kaempfert Turns Us On ... LP
Warner/Dot, 1967. Very Good ... $1.99
Hard to imagine Anita Kerr being turned on – especially given her school marm-ish look on the cover – but the album's a pretty darn groovy set, and one that certainly shows Kerr picking up some of the best easy elements of the 60s! The Burt Kaempfert touch is heard here especially in the album's use of electric bass – a nicely bouncing element that gives most of the tunes a lot more of a bottom than some of Kerr's other work – used in that trademark stepping style that Burt first laid down himself a few years before on worldwide instrumental hits, and made even better here by Anita's great quartet and their warmly-crafted vocal harmonies! Titles include many tunes presented in a Kaempfert-styled way – but with vocals – and tracks include "Love", "I Can't Help Remembering You", "Two Can Live On Love Alone", 'Spanish Eyes", "Remember When", "Danke Schoen", "Strangers In The Night", "Wonderland By Night", and "A Swingin' Safari".

King FamilyKing Family Album ... LP
Warner, 1965. Near Mint- ... $0.99
A set that features the King Sisters, King Cousins, and all the other King kin – working together with instrumentation from the orchestra of Alvino Rey, the man who first gave the world the singing steel guitar! Ralph Carmichael conducts – and does a good job of mixing up all these many elements – and some of the tracks feature smaller groupings of Kings, which makes for some more intimate or interesting numbers on the set. Titles include "You'll Never Walk Alone", "Open Up Your Heart", "Every Man Has A Castle", "God Bless The Child", "The Very Last Day", and "Swing Low Sweet Chariot". LP, Vinyl record album

Warm wonderful whitebread work from the King Family! A great example of the way the large King ensemble really shone in the space of a concert performance – filling up the space well with all the different voices in the extended family, and shifting into different groupings that keep things interesting throughout! Titles include "The Men In My Little Girl's Life", "What The World Needs Now", "On A Clear Day", "I Said No", "Why Did I Choose You", "Guadalajara", and "Baby Sitter's Blues". LP, Vinyl record album

Jack PalancePalance ... CD
Warner/Water, 1970. New Copy ... $7.99 17.99
A really unusual album from actor Jack Palance – unusual in that it may well be his only vocal performance on record, and even more unusual in that it came out during a very hip stretch of Warner Brothers at the start of the 70s! Yet the pairing of Palance and the budding genius of Warner maybe makes perfect sense – as the aging actor is a great fit here for the sorts of moods that you'd find in the bluer songs of Van Dyke Parks, or the subtle drama of Neon Philharmonic – even though the whole thing is less of a Los Angeles affair overall – as it was produced by Buddy Killen in Nashville, with some arrangements by Bergen White. You could call the record a country album, and there's definitely some country elements here – but Jack kind of sing/speaks, and maybe presents the whole thing as a meaner, more mature take on modes that some of the other cowboys on the screen were recording a decade before. Palance also wrote some of the songs – including "The Meanest Guy That Ever Lived" – and other titles include "Goodbye Lucy", "Blackjack County Chains", "A Little Bitty Tear", "Love Can Only Mean You", "Dancing Like Children", and "Brother River".

Joanie SommersJohnny Get Angry ... LP
Warner, 1962. Near Mint- ... $14.99
Dreamy girl pop from the young Joanie Sommers – a set that's got the lady singing in a style that's a bit more chartbound than some of her later recordings, with lots of cool and groovy backings that give the album a wonderful sense of pep – and a slight undercurrent of sex as well! This balance is perfectly summed up in the title cut – Sommers' excellent hit single "Johnny Get Angry", which is practically the epitome of the girl pop sound of the time – yet better than most other folks could touch. Other titles are all great too – and tunes include "Shake Hands With A Fool", "Mean To Me", "The Piano Boy", "One Boy", "Since Randy Moved Away", and "Seems Like Long Long Ago".

✨✧ Joanie SommersLet's Talk About Love ... LP
Warner, 1962. Very Good+ ... $5.99
A very powerful little session from Joanie Sommers – and like most of her work from the time, one that's done in a great blend of jazz and mainstream pop! Orchestrations are by Tommy Oliver, and there's plenty of dynamic horn passages to keep things interesting – even on the mellower numbers, which are often some of the best in the set – and feature Joanie's sweeter vocals amidst a darker bank of trombones that dip and turn gently. The more upbeat numbers often feature some nice percussion touches to get the groove going – and titles include "Till There Was You", "Make The Man Love You", "Spring Is Here", "Let's Talk About Love", "After The Lights Go Down Low", "Namely You", "Kiss & Run", and "I'll Never Stop Loving You".

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".

Joanie SommersSommers' Seasons ... LP
Warner, 1963. Near Mint- ... $9.99
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's second album for Warner Brothers – and a date that features some especially nice backings from Neal Hefti, who helps swing Sommers into some great jazzy territory, but always with that playful Hefti touch that we love so much! Instrumentation is always interesting, even underneath the vocals – and the record sparkles like some of the better upbeat jazz vocal sides on Capitol from the time – much better than the usual mainstream fare, with kind of a cool California wink at the listener. Titles include "Aren't You Glad You're You", "For All We Know", "Nobody Else But Me", "This Can't Be Love", "Let There Be Love", and "This Heart Of Mine". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Roger Nichols & The Small Circle Of FriendsRoger Nichols & The Small Circle Of Friends (with bonus tracks) ... CD
A&M/Rev-Ola (UK), 1967. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of our favorite records of all time – a landmark piece of 60s pop that we'd easily rank with the best work by Brian Wilson, Millennium, Gary Usher, Van Dyke Parks, or any of those other California sunny-eyed hipsters! The style is sweet A&M Records vocal pop – with an emphasis on groovy harmonies in a male/female style that reminds us of We Five or The Free Design – but a lot hipper too, as its more adult in its themes – with this way of bringing innocence into play with mature thoughtfulness, but in subtle modes that are perfect for the unique album's placement on A&M! Nichols would later be known for his songwriting with Paul Williams, and was also part of a core group of underground LA pop luminaries that included the whole Warner crew under Lenny Waronker – and this album definitely has some of the sly undertones of some of the hippest late 60s Warner work as well. Titles include "Snow Queen", "Love So Fine", "Don't Take Your Time", "Can I Go", and "Kinda Wasted Without You". CD features 8 more bonus tracks that include "Our Day Will Come", "Love Song, Love Song", "Just Beyond Your Smile (mono 45)", "I'll Be Back (mono 45)", "Let's Ride" and more – plus extensive new liner notes!
