Bob ThompsonMmm Nice! ... LP
RCA, 1960. Very Good+ ... $12.99
Chorus vocals and jazzy orchestrations – a real standout from the classic HiFi years at RCA, and the kind of a set that makes us say "Mmmmm . . . Nice!" The record's the only one we've ever seen by Bob Thompson, but it's a real doozy – a set that blends together mostly female voices, and a few male ones – in a style that really gets past the older, sleeper "with voices" style of the 50s – and hints at some great uses of the format to come later on in the 60s! The tracks are tight and often upbeat, and Thompson's orchestrations have some great standout touches on horns, vibes, and other instruments – creating a lively interplay that's really bright and groovy, but not nearly as "dynamic for dynamic's sake" as some of the other RCA records of the time. Titles include "Playboy", "Mmm Nice", "While We're Young", "Do It Again", "Hello Young Lovers", "The Best Thing For You", and "The Song Is You". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label stereo pressing with deep groove. Top seam has some minor splitting.)

Phil OchsTape From California ... LP
A&M, 1968. Very Good ... $1.99
Phil Ochs really opens up his sound on this one – working with larger arrangements that make the album sound quite different than the stark, angry folk of his Elektra albums – in a way that creates an even more complicated approach to Ochs' themes cynicism and bitterness. Arrangements are by Bob Thompson, Larry Marks, and Ian Freebairn-Smith – but Van Dyke Parks and Lincoln Mayorga are both credited in the notes, and it's their talents we seem to hear more on the record. Includes the great "The War Is Over" and "Tape From California" – plus "Half A Century High", "Joe Hill", "The Harder They Fall", "When In Rome", and "Floods Of Florence". LP, Vinyl record album
(Labels have some marker.)
