Living VoicesLiving Voices Sing Christmas Music/The Little Drummer Boy ... CD
RCA/Real Gone, 1962/1965. New Copy ... $13.99 14.98
Two different Christmas albums from the Living Voices – a surprisingly spooky studio group put together by RCA in the 60s! The records both have this slightly weird sort of vibe – a male/female vocal chorus, of the sort that might have been in the backdrop on a TV Christmas special at the time – but with these offbeat blue currents that almost seem to undercut their inherent schmaltz – a style that's oddly moving in that subtle way that vintage Holiday records can sometimes produce. Arrangements on the first record are by Ralph Hunter, and Anita Kerr handled the second – both good talents for such projects – and titles include "Wassail Song", "Jingle Bells", "Parade Of The Wooden Soldiers", "Be A Santa", "Do You Hear What I Hear", "Blue Christmas", and "I Heard The Bells On Christmas Day".

Victor LundbergOpen Letter ... LP
Liberty, Late 60s. Sealed ... $2.99
The other side of the sixties – the Barry Goldwater, Middle America one. The follow-up LP to Victor Lundberg's hit single "An Open Letter to My Teenage Son", a Vietnam-era spoken word track in which a conservative father explains to his son that although rebellion is in the tradition that made America great, "If you burn your draft card, then I have no son!". Loads of conservative rants with music..."Dear Son, you asked my reaction to long hair or beards on young people". Well son, Victor's gonna give you an earful! LP, Vinyl record album

Henry ManciniMr Lucky Goes Latin ... CD
RCA (Japan), 1961. Used ... $9.99
One of Henry Mancini's best soundtracks – made even better! The score for Mr. Lucky was a masterpiece of jazzy little themes – and it's always been one that we've loved way better than Peter Gunn or some of Mancini's other more famous work. Here, Mancini redoes that music with a west coast Latin feel – a cool blend of jazzy riffing and percussive rhythms – never as hard-hitting as other Latin work on RCA, which is part of the charm of the record. The rhythms are often a bit gentle, but step in nicely to give Mancini's music a nice little punch – and titles include "Mr Lucky Goes Latin", "Blue Mantilla", "Siesta", "The Sound Of Silver", "The Dancing Cat", and "Cow Bells & Coffee Beans".

ManhattansI Kinda Miss You – The Anthology – Columbia Records 1973 to 1987 ... CD
Columbia/ (UK), 1970s/1980s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $15.99
Beautiful harmony soul from The Manhattans! This excellent 2CD set pulls together a bunch of the greatest songs they recorded for Columbia in the 70s & 80s, with all of their classic singles – hits, comparably overlooked gems, and B-sides alike – plus key album tracks from a nearly 15 year run. Already group soul veterans by the time they began recording for Columbia, The Manhattans are one of those rare groups who managed to get better and better over the years, really hitting their peak in the 70s and riding high for years to come, well into the 1980s! Disc 1 features a perfectly chosen selection of material from the prime years of the 70s, including "There's No Me Without You", "You'd Better Believe It", "Wish That You Were Mine", "Summertime In The City", "Hurt", "Gypsy Man", "Love Talk", "Am I Losing You", "Here Comes The Hurt Again" and many more. Disc 2 focuses on material from their surprisingly wonderful 80s years – carrying classic soul ballad tradition pretty deep into the new decade – a really remarkable achievement given the rapidly changing sounds and styles of that decade! Titles include "Shining Star", "Girl Of My Dream", "Just One Moment Away", "Crazy", "Forever By Your Side", "Where Did We Go Wrong?" with Regina Belle, "All I Need", "Neither One Of Us (Wants To Be The First To Say Goodbye)" and more. 35 tracks on 2CDs!

Bob Marley & The WailersBob Marley & The Wailers – Live (2CD set – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Island, 1975. New Copy 2CD ... $19.99 21.98
A great global showcase for the growing power of Bob Marley – an excellent live set recorded in London in 1975, and a date that shows Bob and The Wailers working with the crowd in this really universal spirit! The group's almost got a funkier current here than on some of their studio record – and their sharp edges are warmed up by female backing vocals which seem almost to act as a bridge between Marley's lead, and the very enthusiastic spirit of the crowd! The whole thing's great – and titles include totally burning versions of "Trenchtown Rock", "Burnin & Lootin", "Them Belly Full", "Lively Up Yourself", "No Woman, No Cry", "I Shot The Sheriff", and "Get Up Stand Up". Fantastic 2CD version – with 12 unreleased tracks, and 2 more presented here in unreleased full length versions! CD

Harvey MasonEarth Mover (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Arista/ (UK), 1976. New Copy ... $8.99 13.99
Legendary drummer Harvey Mason in sweet jazz funk groove at Arista – a way stronger record than we remembered! Harvey played on some of our favorite jazz funk records of all time – including the massive Gears LP by Johnny Hammond among so many other great albums – and on his on 70s work for Arista, he explored jazz funk and soul instrumentals, with an expansive approach. He was an integral piece of the pie on so many completely essential records by other artists, that it's far too easy to overlook the considerable strengths of the records he headlined, and this is surely of on one of those! Players include Lee Ritenour & Ray Parker on guitars, the Sea Wind Horns of Bruce Fowler, Sally and Kenny Mason, Greg Pillinganes and Paul Smith on pianos and organs, Jan Hammer on Mini Moog and others. Cuts include "Sweet Mercy", "Bertha Baptist", "First Summer" (with Harvey Mason on vibes, bells and chimes), "No Lands Man", "Sho Nuff Groove", "The Mase", "When I'm With You (Live Version)" and "KY And The Curb". This expanded edition from includes 2 bonus tracks: "KY And The Curb (US Single)" and "The Mase (UK Single)". CD

MaysaVery Maysa Christmas ... CD
Shanachie, 2014. New Copy ... $16.99 18.98
It's like a Christmas wish come true – a fantastic album of Holiday music, all sung by the soulful Maysa Leak! We've loved Maysa's vocals for years – from her work in Incognito to her long run of solo albums – but she grabs us all over again with the style of this set – a really fresh variation on her excellent sound, with a righteous undercurrent that definitely comes from the spirit of the season! Production is still contemporary and soul-based – done by Chris "Big Dog" Davis, in the spirit of Maysa's other recent records – but the shift in material seems to open up a whole new side of the singer – on titles that include "Pray For Peace", "Jingle Bells", "Joy To The World", "It's The Holidays", and "Christmas Time Is Here". Album also features guest appearances – with Will Downing on "This Christmas", and Gerald Albright on "Silver Bells". CD

✨✧ Howard McGheeMaggie – The Savoy Sessions ... LP
Savoy, Late 40s/Early 50s. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $6.99
Howard McGhee had a bit of a checkered recording career over the years, but the material he cut for Savoy was some of his strongest – and showed the bop trumpter as one of the more innovative players of his generation, willing to experiment with more interesting arrangements and styles than some of his contemporaries. We're not sure if this 2LP set contains all of Maggie's work for Savoy, but it's got a heck of a lot of stuff, with great notes, and even some unissued material. Titles include "Bass C Jam", "Fiesta", "Belle From Bunnycock", "Royal Garden Blues", "Lady Be Good", "Harvest Time", "Short Life", and "Talk Of The Town". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light corner wear & a cutout notch.)

Monday MichiruPortraits In Time – 2002 to 2013 ... CD
Adventure, 2016. New Copy 2CD ... $12.99 15.99
A wonderful portrait of Monday Michiru – one of our favorite singers of the past 20 years – equally well-versed in jazz, soul, and Brazilian modes – all of which come together on this collection of very well-chosen and overlooked tracks! The special 2CD package brings together music from some of Monday's smaller label and under-distributed titles – including a number of import-only selections, a few collaborations with other artists, and a really wonderful array of tunes that show just how much Michiriu has grown since she first started out! Monday hit some great fame in the mid 90s in Japan – but during recent years, she's been living in the US mostly, and really working on her craft away from the limelight – opening up with expressive jazz inflections that rival some of her best inspirations of previous decades, while still holding onto the richly soulful power that brought her some strong early attention. If you've missed hearing Monday at all, this set is a great introduction – and even if you've followed her as closely as we have, we'll bet that there's some tracks here you might not have in your collection. 23 tracks in all – including "Dreams Of Tomorrow", "Mi Vida", "Sometimes", "One (Alter Ego version)", "Generations", "Epiphany", "Aldeia De Ogum", "Nexus Interlude", "Hung Up", "Genetic Imprints", "Just Be Good To Me", "No Matter What", "Belle O Byron Bay (Bluey mix)", "No Answer", "The Cosmic Laws", and "Cut To The Chase".

Mndsgn & AhwleeRap X-Mas Vacation (with bonus tracks) ... LP
Rap Vacation, 2016. New Copy ... $16.99 18.98
A Rap X-Mas Vacation from Mndsgn & Ahwlee – one side of beats & yuletide theme sample genius from Mndsgn and an equally solid side by Ahwlee! This is fresh, funky and fun as can be – on point with some recognizable and obscure samples that stick nicely with the X-Mas theme (and some X-rated...maybe don't spin this one for the little kids and the grandparents), and really adding up to one of the freshest holiday-themed hip hop releases in years! Includes "Giveways", "The Weather", "Snowed In", "Doodoogifts", "Skates", "That Time", "Bells B Silver", "Northpolemetro" and more. Ahwlee side includes "Haloh", "Boxt Up", "Mistlestep", "Wht To Do", "Hotkoko","Keepit", "Savesumcheer" and more – plus 3 vinyl bonus tracks – "KRIMB", "N64" and "Nog'd.Out". LP, Vinyl record album

Rudy Ray MooreTurning Point – The Rudy Ray Moore Singing Album ... CD
Generation/Dolemite, Mid 70s. New Copy ... $11.99 12.98
A record's that's billed as "The Singing Album" – and a whole new chapter in the career of Rudy Ray Moore! The set definitely features Rudy on vocals, but the instrumentation's just as important too – some nice funky undercurrents and rootsy soul bits, all arranged and conducted by Arthur Wright – with a vibe that's somewhere in the Petey Wheatstraw mode! Moore's actually going for a deep soul approach on a few cuts – maybe trying to give Blowfly/Clarence Reid a run for his money – and music is by the Fillmore St Soul Rebellion and Rabbit Foot Minstrel Group. Titles include "Need To Belong", "Put Your Weight On It", "Turning Point", "Knock Me A Kiss", "I Cried A Tear", and "Great Pretender". CD

Mr Gasser & The WeirdosRods N Ratfinks ... CD
Capitol/Sundazed, 1964. New Copy ... $13.99 14.98
An incredibly groovy record from the LA scene of the 60s – part of a trio of cool Capitol sets with cover art by Ed "Big Daddy" Roth – all put together by studio genius Gary Usher! The tunes here are all originals – jaunty numbers with a definite hot rod vibe, but with a groove that's even hipper than usual – kind of a swinging soundtrack sort of approach, especially on the ultra-catchy vocals! Usher sings leads with Dick Burns – and the combo features Glen Campbell and Billy Strange on guitars, Ernie Freeman on piano, Carol Kaye on bass, and Earl Palmer on drums – all making for a rock-solid approach to the music. Titles include "The Lonely Stocker", "Three Kats In A Tub", "Hey Rat Fink", "1947 Avanti", "The Waltz Of The Rat Finks", and "The Ballad Of Effin Fink". CD

NirvanaLocal Anaesthetic (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Vertigo/Esoteric (UK), 1971. New Copy ... $13.99
A very weird and wonderful step forward for the British group Nirvana – a set that marks their move to the Vertigo label with some very open-ended, freewheeling songs that were mostly the brainchild of group member Patrick Campbell-Lyons! Each tune takes up a full side of the record – and has the group exploring more progressive territory, but still with all the strong sense of tunefulness of the past! There's more core rock instrumentation, and less of the larger arrangements from their Island Records years – but that also seems to give the songs a primal power that the group never had before! Side one features the moody "Modus Operandi", and side two features the nicely driving "Home" suite – a very dynamic tune. CD also features the bonus single tracks "The Saddest Day Of My Life" and "I Wanna Go Home". CD

Other tracks include "The First Noel", "Joy To The World", "Jingle Bells", "Silent Night", "'Cause It's Christmas" and more. 10 tracks in all. CD
