Lesley GoreBoys Boys Boys (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Mercury/Ace (UK), 1963. New Copy ... $14.99 18.99
Lesley Gore may have cried at her party, but by the time of this third LP she's very much past the point of tears – and working her way through a big assortment of boy-themed tunes promised in the title! The album's about as sublime as you can get for 60s girl pop – set to arrangements by Claus Ogerman, produced by Quincy Jones, and delivered with this punch that's way past the stock weepies of the scene – that special sort of girl power that only Gore could get this right! Tunes are all pretty darn groovy – and seem to include a few originals just for the set – that special kind of no-filler approach that also made so many of Lesley's albums from the period so wonderful. Titles include "Boys", "It's Gotta Be You", "Don't Call Me", "That's The Way Boys Are", "Leave Me Alone", "That's The Way The Ball Bounces", "I'm Coolin No Foolin", and "I'll Make It Up To You". CD features lots of bonus tracks – 13 more numbers that include "Run Bobby Run", "I Struck A Match", "Sunshine Lollipops & Rainbows", "The Old Crowd", "Judy's Turn To Cry", "Just Let Me Cry", "No More Tears", "If That's The Way You Want It", "Time To Go", "You Don't Own Me", and the classic "It's My Party".

VariousDoes Anybody Know I'm Here? – Vietnam Through The Eyes Of Black America 1962 to 1972 ... CD
Kent (UK), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
A great follow-up to the Soldier's Sad Story collection on Kent – and like that one, a mindblowing collection of soul music from the Vietnam era! The CD is like finding a few lost pages in the history books on the war – as it represents a lesser-heard voice from the time, and a really unusual take on the conflict that strained America in the 60s and the 70s. While some of the songs are quite explicit in their meaning, the more unusual thing about the collection is the way that many of the tunes present their opinions in a more submerged way – as general themes of loss, disenfranchisement, and longing that take on whole new meaning when brought together in a collection like this. The quality of the set is really great, with full notes on the material to document their selection and connection – and the CD features a total of 23 tracks that include "Don't Cry My Soldier Boy" by Thelma Houston, "Am I Ever Gonna See My Baby Again" by The Sweet Inspirations, "I Should Be Proud" by Martha Reeves & The Vandellas, "Vaya Con Dios/Fellows In Vietnam" by Inez & Charlie Foxx, "Open Letter To The President" by Roy C, "Welcome The Boys Back Home" by Bill Moss & The Celestials, "War" by The Temptations, "Soldier's Goodbye" by William Bell, "A Soldier's Prayer 1967" by Archie Bell & The Drells, "Please Uncle Sam" by The Charmels, "Please Mr President" by King Solomon, "Does Anybody Know I'm Here" by The Dells, and "A Letter From My Son" by Melverine Thomas.

VariousWarner Girl Group Nuggets Vol 7 – I Want A Boy ... CD
Warner (Japan), New Copy ... $21.99
A totally great collection of girl group material from Warner Brothers and related labels – and a set that definitely lives up to the "nuggets" promised in the title! Most of these tracks aren't hits, or overplayed oldies – and instead are these sweet little gems that lay nestled deep in the mighty holdings of Warner – brought forth for this special Japanese-only series, in a sublime selection of cuts that features both solo female singers, and some excellent girl groups too! There's a few soul acts in the mix, but most of the material is in the rock and pop vein – with the kind of super-sparkly production you'd get on labels like Warner, Roulette, Josie, and Jubilee. This 7th volume features a nicely expanded take on the style – with a bit of soul, and some later gems too – titles that include "Wanna Make Him Mine" by The Emeralds, "The Trouble With Boys" by Little Eva, "I Want A Boy" by Ronnie & The Relatives, "You're Absolutely Right" by The Apollas, "All Of My Life" by Connie Stevens, "Tonight I Met An Angel" by The Parlettes, "You're No Good" by Dee Dee Warwick, "Come Go With Me" by Sugar & Spice, "Tomorrow's Fool" by Marian Angel, "Fine Fine Fine" by Judy Flint, "Hey Handsome Boy" by Jill Jackson, "Don't Laugh If I Cry At Your Party" by Tamiko, and "We Need To Be Loved" by The Teen Turbans.

✨✧ VariousPhil's Spectre 2 – Another Wall Of Soundalikes ... CD
Ace (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, then during the 60s, Phil Spector was one heavily-flattered guy! As this second installment in the Phil's Spectre series shows, the Spector "wall of sound" technique was so popular in 60s pop that it was often copied in a range of genres, on a range of labels, by a range of producers that included Alan Lorber, Smokey Robinson, Jerry Fuller, Abner Specter, Al Kooper, Jack Nitzsche, and many others. The collection nicely dips into a variety of rock, pop, vocal, and soul tunes from the mid 60s – all of which show a marked Spector influence – and which together make for a really gorgeous batch of well-crafted 60s tunes, whether or not you even care about the Phil Spector connection! The package also includes a song-by-song set of notes – often with commentary by the original producer – and a list of 24 titles that includes "Don't You Be Ashamed" by Joe South, "Break Down & Cry" by Kane & Abel, "Gee What A Boy" by The Vontastics, "One Block From Heaven" by Mary Wells, "Nite Owl" by The Righteous Brothers, "I Do" by The Beach Boys, "Be My Man" by Suzy Wallis, "Bring It All Down" by The Satisfactions, "No Room To Cry" by Dobie Gray, and "Dreamin Of You" by Noreen Cocoran.

VariousArock & Sylvia Soul Story ... CD
Kent (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
One of the freshest soul compilations we've heard in years – a selection of sophisticated soul numbers from the Sylvia and Adrock labels, both owned by tenor star Al Sears, and very different than the usual sort of 60s soul imprint! The arrangements on these tunes are incredible – more like early Bacharach pop styles than some of the rougher indie soul of the time – and they're mixed with great vocals by singers with a deeply soulful approach, creating a real blend of the rough and the sweet – one that sends our ears to a happy place they haven't been in a long time! A large number of these tracks were recorded in the 60s, but not issued until now – and the 28 track set is like finding a treasure trove of lost soul, with a sound that's different than anything else. Titles include "Where the World Begins" by Sam Hawkins, "A Victim Of Her Charms" by The Corvairs, "He's A Lover" by Tutti Hill, "Just To Make Me Cry" by Sam Hawkins, "A Day Or Two" by Garrett Saunders, "Which Way" by Junior Lewis, "Don't Do Me That Way" by Joan Moody, "I Am A Witness" by The Diplomats, "Too Much" by The DC Playboys, "Come Tomorrow" by Marie Knight, "Two Seconds Of Love" by Junior Lewis, and "Keep On" by Sterling Magee.
