Capitol, Mid 50s. Near Mint- ... $6.99

George ChakirisWest Side Story's Dynamic George Chakiris ... LP
Capitol, Early 60s. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
Chakiris made his big fame in the film version of West Side Story, but we've always been bigger fans of his work in Les Demoiselles De Rochefort. This album's one of many weak attempts to get his singing career in line with his matinee idol looks – and it features some of the best ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ June ChristyBallads For Night People ... LP
Capitol, 1961. Very Good ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Darkly beautiful work from singer June Christy – a lesser-remembered gem from the end of her years at Capitol Records! The mood here is very much in keeping with the "night people" setting of the title – a lonely space of empty streets, open windows, and late night saloons ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Capitol, 1962. Very Good ... $4.99
A very different album than usual for June Christy – one of her last for Capitol, and a very swinging, upbeat affair!

✨✧ June ChristyCool School – Songs For Grown Up Children ... LP
Capitol, 1960. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Amazing stuff, and easily one of June's greatest albums – even if it is an unusual one! The format here is a far cry from the boozier modes of June's earlier career – as the tunes on the set are mostly children's songs, redone as jazzier numbers by June and the Joe Castro Quartet ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

June ChristyGone For the Day ... LP
Capitol, 1957. Very Good ... $3.99
That's "gone" – as in the way June Christy really sends us – vocals that take us to a place that few other 50s singers could ever hope to reach! June's work here is a masterpiece of melancholic understatement – far less overblown than some of her pop contemporaries, but ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

A later Capitol gem by June – where she reprisies a number of classics from her early years with Stan Kenton – new versions of late 40s tunes, done here with Pete Rugolo arrangements that go a good way towards showing how both he and June had grown during the 50s. Titles include "H ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

June's got rhythm, sure, but the real thing that makes her great is her dark and moody sense of melody! This album's one of June's late 50s efforts done with husband/arranger Bob Cooper – not as arch modern as some of her work with Pete Rugolo, but still in a style that's definitely inspired ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Lou RawlsLou Rawls & Strings ... LP
Capitol, 1965. Very Good ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Great early work by Lou Rawls – no, the album doesn't have funky David Axelrod arrangements – but it does feature Lou with some great jazzy backing by Benny Carter – who really knows how to put the right degree of punch in the arrangements to bring out the best in Lou's voice. ...

Lou RawlsSoulin' ... LP
Capitol, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
One of the best albums that Lou Rawls cut with the team of HB Barnum and David Axelrod – that incredible duo who made some of his 60s Capitol albums so great! The style here is wonderful – upbeat grooves from Barnum – who brings more soul into Lou's music than before – ... (Soul, Vocalists) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Capitol, 1963. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
A real breakthrough for Lou – a set that again paired him with arranger Onzy Matthews, and which even more deeply explored the unique space between jazz, soul, and the blues that became Rawls' prime territory back in the 60s! Matthews' backings are hip and jazzy throughout – filled ... (Soul, Vocalists) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Capitol, 1969. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
One of the nice moments from the days when David Axelrod was producing Lou Rawls! The record's a great mix of soul and tight LA production, and features the breakbeat cut "Fa Fa Fa Fa Fa (Sad Song)". Other nice ones include "Season Of The Witch", "It's You", "I ... (Soul, Vocalists) read more LP, Vinyl record album

One of Lou's most jazz-oriented albums – featuring backing by Les McCann's famous trio with Leroy Vinnegar and Ron Jefferson, perfectly suited to Lou's soulful renditions of the tunes on the album.

Ann Richards/Stan KentonTwo Much ... LP
Capitol, Mid 50s. Near Mint- ... $7.99
Ann's a more lustily voiced singer than the sort that usually worked with Stan Kenton during the 50s – with a deep range in her delivery of a song, and a mode of singing that's a bit more unbridled than you'd expect for someone working under Stan. This set's a lot more Ann's album than it is ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Capitol, Mid 50s. Very Good ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Billy May's got Frank nicely swinging on this one – working on a set of older numbers, retuned for the Sinatra sound of 50s Capitol! The band is tight, the sound is right, and Frank steps out nicely on songs that he sung years before in other settings – but quite possibly never so well ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Capitol, 1961. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of Frank's liveliest albums for Capitol – a return to the harder-swinging mode of the early and mid 50s, after a wealth of sadder albums in the later part of the decade. Backings are by Billy May – in that brassy mode he used at the time, one that kept the tunes hiply grooving, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

A nice little set from Frank – and similar to the album This Is Sinatra, a record that collects some of his non-LP singles for Capitol from the 50s.

A lesser-remembered Capitol set from Dakota Staton, but a great one too – a record that has Dakota singing ballads and blues, both of which she does pretty darn well!

The title certainly gets it right – as Dakota Staton is definitely dynamic on this one, but not in a way that's hokey or forced at all!
