Rosemary ClooneyCBS Radio Recordings 1955 to 1961 (5CD set) ... CD
Mosaic, Late 50s. New Copy 5CD ... $84.99 85.00
A really wonderful setting for the great Rosemary Clooney – an excellent singer at all times, but maybe heard here in some of her best recordings ever! The tracks all appear here for the first time on record – pulled from the vaults of CBS, where Clooney recorded the material over the course of a few years with small combo backings from keyboardist Buddy Cole – in a style that was similar to some of the best Bing Crosby radio work of the time! Rosemary really sparkles in the setting – free from some of the hoke or gimmicks of some of her other 50s records – and able to both show off her jazz pipes in a swinging style, and hit these beautifully personal moments on the ballads. Cole himself plays piano, organ, harpsichord, and celeste – and the group features just guitar from Vince Terri, bass from Don Whitaker, and drums from Nick Fatool – quite a change from the bigger backings on Rosemary's other albums. The work is a real revelation – an exposure of this side of Clooney's talent to all of us who weren't fortunate to catch it the first time around – and the whole thing is put together in the best Mosaic style – with a whopping 104 tracks on 5CDs – all with excellent sound, and a full booklet of notes and photos!

Love Affair/Steve EllisTime Hasn't Changed Us – The Complete CBS Recordings 1967 to 1971 (3CD set) ... CD
CBS/RPM (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 3 CDs ... $19.99
A really great run of music from The Love Affair, and later solo lead singer Steve Ellis – a group who were born in the same soulful brew as bigger mid 60s London acts like Traffic or The Spencer Davis Group – and who found in Ellis a similarly great lead singer to really give them focus! Yet while some of the other mod groups of the time maybe moved into headier territory, The Love Affair, and later Ellis, always were happy to keep things in this great mode that was more pop, but still with a very soulful approach on the vocals – and produced with almost the same sort of spectacular sounds that you'd hear from female singers like Dusty Springfield or Cilla Black, especially as the music moves on. The solo Ellis material is especially wonderful – and includes the very groovy tunes he did for the film Loot – and this stunning 3CD set features a whopping 67 tracks in all, with titles that include "Everlasting Love", "More More More", "Loot", "I Got A Feelin", "Can't Stop Worryin", "Bringing On Back The Good Times", "Another Day", "One Road", "Handbags & Gladrags", "Bring My Whole World Tumbling Down", and "Walk On Gilded Splinters".

✨✧ CBS Jazz All StarsMontreux Summit Vol 1 ... CD
Columbia/Wounded Bird, 1977. Used 2 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A really amazing little record – way more than usual for this sort of live recording – given that it features some very unique performances together by artists we've never heard on the same stage otherwise! The premise is simple, but wonderfully effective – in that the album brings together some of the leading lights of the Columbia/CBS jazz stable at the time – a massive lineup of talent from a few key generations in jazz, sounding surprisingly great hear together! All tracks are nice and long – and titles include a brilliant version of "Infant Eyes" by a quartet with Stan Getz on tenor and Bob James on piano; "Fried Bananas" with Dexter Gordon on tenor, Slide Hampton on trombone, Woody Shaw on trumpet, and George Duke on piano; "Bahama Mama" with Bob James on keyboards, Bobbi Humphrey on flute, Eric Gale and Steve Kahn on guitars, and Billy Cobham on drums – and the long jam session tracks "Montreux Summit", "Blues March", and "Andromeda" – which feature work from most of the players above, all working in one large group – plus added flute from Hubert Laws and Thijs Van Leer, percussion from Ralph Maconald, and bass from Alphonso Johnson.

✨✧ Georgie FameGeorgie Does His Thing With Strings/Knock On Wood/CBS Singles ... CD
CBS/BGO (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
Some of our favorite work ever from the mighty Georgie Fame – key tracks from his years on CBS – when he was really moving past straight jazz, into a whole great style of his own! First up is the full album Georgie Does His Thing With Strings – a set that has Georgie Fame singing with a host of string-heavy backings from the great Keith Mansfield! Given Mansfield's roots in the sound library scene, the style here is never as sleepy or hokey as you might expect from the "strings" in the title – but there is a moodier, mellower approach than you'd hear on other Fame albums – a style that's partially aimed at older jazz vocal modes, but which also echoes with sounds of the Scott Walker generation – a newly mature mode that's a really great fit for Georgie's unique style of singing, and which exposes yet another amazing side of his seemingly limitless talents! There's always a nice sense of warmth and wit going on – one that keeps these tunes from just being the usual sort of standard vocal fare of the period – and Mansfield's backings have a lean quality that often pulses with a very gentle groove at the bottom. Titles include "Who's Kissing You Blues", "Girl Talk", "This Guy's In Love With You", "A House Is Not A Home", "Woe Is Me", "Need Your Love So Bad", and "Guess Who I Saw Today". Next is the rare Knock On Wood EP – with four songs that include the title track, plus "Close The Door", "All I'm Asking", and "Didn't Want To Have To Do It". THEN – the CD adds in 21 more bonus tracks – almost all non-album single cuts by Fame from the late 60s and start of the 70s – most of which have never been reissued, and are a flurry of mad soul, clever vocals, and lots of hip instrumental twists – all delivered with that undeniable Georgie Fame charm. Titles include "Down Along The Cover", "Seventh Son", "No Thanks", "Try My World", "Bidin My Time", "For Your Pleasure", "Kentucky Child", "Peaceful", "Entertaining Mr Sloan", "Someday Man", and "The Movie Star Song".

Judy BaileyYou & The Night & The Music ... LP
CBS/Be! (Germany), 1962. New Copy ... $24.99
Really beautiful sounds from Australian pianist Judy Bailey – a musician that most folks know for her funk work of the 70s, but who was already pretty darn great, right at the start of her career! This lovely little set was recorded in Sydney's El Rocco Jazz Cellar at the start of the 60s – and it features Bailey working with a magically fluid trio with Lyn Christie on bass and John Sangster on drums – the latter of whom you might know for his later work on vibes, and who seems to already have a melodic touch on his drums here! At times, Sangster's almost got a Chico Hamilton-like sense of subtle sound and rhythmic inflection – which works very well alongside the lyrically blue piano lines from Judy. Titles include "Night Dreams", "Night & Day", "Deep Night", "You & The Night & The Music", "Round Midnight", and "The Night Has A Thousand Eyes". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited to 500 copies.)

Colin BlunstonePlanes/Never Even Thought ... CD
CBS/Cherry Red (UK), 1977/1978. New Copy ... $13.99
Two overlooked albums from this godlike ex-singer from The Zombies – back to back on a single CD! Planes has Colin Blunstone again working closely with former bandmate Rod Argent – who plays a fair bit of keyboards on the record, and even harmonizes with Colin on a number of tunes – in a style that's laidback, but also nicely polished too – that mellower mode that Blunstone was hitting in the mid 70s. The vocals are recorded in a way that's less spacious than before – not as much echo or ethereal elements, even on the mellower tracks – and although the overall style might be a more polished version of singer/songwriter modes from a few years before, Blunstone still beats most of the competition with both his original songs, and the way he puts them over. Titles include a nice remake of "Care Of Cell 44", plus "Tell Me How", "Loving & Free", "Dancing IN The Dark", "Only With You", "Ain't It Funny", "Since I've Been Loving You", and "I Can Almost See The Light". Never Even Thought is a record that still has Colin Blunstone sounding surprisingly strong a few albums into his solo career – maybe a bit mellower, and with a bit less edge than at the start – but still very able to find the best way to put his amazing vocals to work! The backings are smooth, but not too AOR – just this kind of laidback, lightly tippling style that mostly has Blunstone moving at midtempo modes that let the lyrics resonate strongly in the spaciousness of his voice. Light strings are used at times, which is always a nice touch with Colin's voice – and many of the tracks on the album are originals by Blunstone – including "I'll Never Forget You", "Who's That Knocking", "Lovelight", "Ain't It Funny", "Photograph", "Touch & Go", and "You Are The Way For Me".

✨✧ BrickStoneheart ... LP
Bang/CBS, 1979. Very Good ... $1.99
Damn fine work from Brick – a group who's even tighter here than before – yet all without ever sounding too slick or commercial! Brick's one of that rare breed – a combo who can groove with an edge, even while cracking the mainstream – never hitting the biggest spots in the public eye, yet consistently keeping things great for years – and earning a huge legion of lifetime fans in the process! There's a great midtempo groove to many of these cuts – almost a precursor for Ohio, and later west coast funk of this sort – carved out nicely by the group in a very cohesive way. Titles include "We'll Love", "Raise Your Hands", "To Me", "Magic Woman", and "By The Moonlight". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve. White label promo with a tracklist sticker on the back.)

Pauli CarmanDial My Number (with bonus track) ... CD
CBS/PTG (Netherlands), 1986. New Copy ... $18.99
An overlooked set from the 80s soul mainstream – the first solo album from the lead singer from Champaign! Pauli Carman's look on the cover definitely gives away the feel of the album – sweet 80s soul with a nice blend of beats and keyboards in the mix, all with the right sort of emphasis to balance out the vocals! Pauli's got a bit more bite than you'd expect for such a classy look on the cover – but he's also great at sliding into a mellow, or midtempo number – the kind of quiet storm 80s tracks that are often a good balance to the more beat-heavy tracks on a record like this. Titles include "Dial My Number", "Lose Control", "High & Low", "You Impress Me", "Flashback", "Close To The Bone", and "Dangerous". CD features the bonus track "Dial My Number (ext dance version)".

✨✧ Miles DavisAt Plugged Nickel, Chicago Vol 1 ... LP
CBS/Sony (Japan), 1965/1976. Near Mint- ... $34.99
This stunning live set has been hailed by many as one of the finest moments of Miles' mid 60s career – music played with a frenetic energy that even blows away the famous studio sessions of the time! The group here is a landmark lineup – young modernists Wayne Shorter on tenor, Herbie Hancock on piano, and Tony Williams on drums – all reaching out to really increase their craft, and work through new ideas alongside Miles' trumpet. This first volume includes long versions of "Walkin", "Agitation", "So What", and "On Green Dolphin Street", and the material is from December 23, 1965. Pressed up on nice hard Japanese wax, with a weird computer image on the cover! LP, Vinyl record album

DictatorsDictators Go Girl Crazy! (with bonus tracks) ... CD
CBS/Real Gone, 1975. New Copy ... $17.99 19.98
Snotty New York proto-punk with more than just an undercurrent of comedy running through the beefy tunes, and a heavy dose of good ol' swagger! The Dictators are truly, completely punk – even if Go Girl Crazy pre-dates the genre classification by a year or so – and even if their groove is closer to a crotch thrusting, garage version or parody (?) of Bad Company than it is the more revolutionary CBGBs bands. These are punks in the truest sense – sarcastic and ironic. Handsome Dick Manitoba and the boys run through 9 numbers on the classic original album – "The Next Big Thing", "I Got You Babe", "Back To Africa", "Master Race Rock", "Teengenerate", "California Sun", "Two Tub Man", "Weekend", "(I Live For) Cars & Girls" and more. This great 40th anniversary edition has a killer batch of bonus material, too! 2 classic tracks are re-mixed by Dictators devotee Andrew WK – "Two Tub Man" and "Weekend" – plus a bunch of great outtakes, alternate versions and more from the original sessions. 18 tracks in all!

✨✧ Art Farmer/Jim HallBig Blues ... CD
CTI/CBS, 1979. Used ... $11.99
Sweet and subtle genius from two of the most understated players in jazz – a really great little record that makes the best of the CTI sound without tricking up the players too much! Art Farmer and Jim Hall play in a quintet with vibes by Mike Mainieri – in a style that eschews the electric funk of other CTI records, but has a similar sense of space, sound, and rhythm overall – proof that the label's groundbreaking approach didn't always have to be electrified! Tracks are quite long, and the two leaders effortlessly craft notes that magically hang in space with an airily soulful feel. Titles include wonderfully reworked versions of "Whisper Not", "A Child Is Born", and "Pavane For A Dead Princess". CD

Joki FreundYogi Jazz (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
CBS/Jazzhus Disk (Japan), 1963. New Copy ... $13.99
Tremendous early work from German saxophonist Joki Freund – a player who would go onto much greater fame in the progressive years at the end of the 60s, but who already sounds plenty darn great on this early combo side from 1963! The style of the work is incredibly hip – with a definite John Coltrane modal groove in place, but also a sense of globally conscious jazz that's very much in the spirit of classic Saba/MPS work, but which predates most of that by a number of years! Freund plays tenor and soprano sax here – in a sextet with Wolfgang Dauner on piano, Emil Mangelsdorff on flute and alto, Eberhard Weber on bass, Karl Theodor Geier on bass, and Peter Baumeister on drums – and the record is overflowing with great tunes that more than live up to the compelling title and cover image! Lots of "Eastern" styled numbers – and titles include "Aisha", "Carribean Ringo", "Yogiana", "HL 20", and "Killer Joe". CD
