Dean MartinMemories Are Made Of This – The Capitol Years Part 1 (8 CD Box Set) ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), Late 40s/Early 50s. Used 8CDs & Book ... $99.99
Rare work by Dean Martin – a wealth of early singles, soundtrack tunes, and other tracks that have never been reissued before – all wrapped up in an incredibly lovely 8CD box set that comes with a LP-sized hardcover book filled with color images, notes on the music, and loads of fantastic photos! The set features early material that Dean recorded for the Diamond label starting in 1946, then moves into his Apollo recordings, and finally hits the bulk of the sides – which are for Capitol Records, from 1949 to 1956. But not only that, 2 of the CDs in the set features material from Dean's films – including many with Jerry Lewis – numbers that have never been reissued from movies that include The Stooge, My Friend Irma, At War With The Army, The Caddy, Money From Home, You're Never Too Young, Scared Stiff, and lots more. The set is incredible – with far more songs than we could ever hope to mention here, and enough material to keep you digging into Dino's career for years and years and years! CD
(Out of print. Box has some light wear, but this is a great copy overall!)

Dean MartinReturn To Me – The Capitol Years Part 2 (8CD set) ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. Used 8CDs ... $109.99
A fantastic package of work that spans all of Dean's later years at Capitol Records – a time when he was really hitting his creative stride, breaking up with Jerry Lewis, and emerging as a multi-talented performer through his countless live appearances, film work, and other notable contributions to late 50s popular culture. All of this is documented brilliantly in the set's beautiful booklet – a 12" hardcover book with biographical information, an essay, discographical notes, and countless photos and images of Dean in his prime! Dean Martin has been woefully overlooked on the reissue market over the years, which makes this set even fresher than you might think – as it includes a huge amount of stuff that's never been reissued before, including tunes from radio shows, and film soundtracks like Ocean's Eleven, Pardners, Hollywood Or Bust, Ten Thousand Bedrooms, and The Young Lions. We totally love this one – and although we've been Dino fanatics for years, opening this one up is like finding a vault full of rare work we've never heard before! CD

A great set of early modern bop material – 37 tracks that bring together the complete Blue Note recordings of Tadd Dameron and Fats Navarro – about half of them featuring Navarro in Dameron's group, the other half featuring Fats on his own, working with Bud Powell, Howard McGhee, and Benny Goodman. The set includes a few alternate takes, and titles include "Stealin Apples", "Focus", "John's Delight", "The Squirrel", "The Chase", "Our Delight", "The Skunk", "Double Talk", "Boperation", and "Wail".

Piltdown Men/Ernie Fields/Earl PalmerPiltdown Men Ride Again – The Capitol Instrumentals With Ernie Fields & His Orchestra & Earl Palmer ... CD
Ace (UK), Early 60s. New Copy ... $7.99 18.99
The complete recordings of The Piltdown Men – collected here with a host of other excellent instrumentals from early 60s Capitol Records! The first half of the set features tracks from the short run of The Piltdown Men – a studio-based instrumental project headed by young arrangers Lincoln Mayoga and Ed Cobb – with a lineup that featured top LA talents like Bob Bain and Tommy Tedesco on guitars, plus some honking sax from Scott Gordon – all on a host of songs that have a very strong caveman theme in the title! Yet the overall approach is more rock instrumental – kind of halfway between R&B honkers of the late 50s, and the surf sounds to come (and in fact, you could make an argument that this material prefaces that trend in a great way) – on titles that include "Piltdown Rides Again", "McDonald's Cave", "Goodnight Mrs Flintstone, "Big Lizzard", "Flint Stomp", and "Brontosaurus Stomp". CD then moves onto include 9 more instrumentals from Ernie Fields – an artist who'd already recorded previously on the world of the LA R&B scene in the 50s – and who brings a jazzy vibe to cuts that include "Adam's Rib", "Leap Frog", "Green Green", "Birmingham Jail", and "I'll Cry Instead". Last up are three tracks from the mighty drummer Earl Palmer – "Drum Village (parts 1 & 2)" and "Swingin Drums". CD

Frank SinatraCapitol Years (3 CD box set) ... CD
Capitol, 1950s/Early 60s. Used 3CD ... $8.99
A great batch of wonderful music – a well condensed 3 CD box set that features some of Sinatra's best recorded during his Capitol tenure! As is well known, Sinatra's Capitol years were his finest – a time when he moved past a simple pop singer into a complicated vocalist with a sense of expression so deep that it lent itself perfectly to the emerging form of the long-playing record. Many of the albums this material is drawn from are early "concept" sets by Sinatra, and feature moods and themes that move far beyond simple vocal work – into richly expressive territory that's hardly ever been matched again! Arrangers include Nelson Riddle, Billy May, Gordon Jenkins, and Alex Stordhal and there's a total of 75 numbers in all included here! CD

Frank SinatraComplete Capitol Singles Collection (4CD box set) ... CD
Capitol, 1950s. Used 4 CDs ... $24.99
A key look at a side of Sinatra that's all too easily forgotten in the passage of time – the singles he cut in the 50s for Capitol Records, at the same time he was recording his classic full length LPs! Much has been said of Sinatra's LPs for the label – and together, they have stood the test of time as a tribute to one of the greatest vocalists of the 20th century. But next to those albums, Sinatra also recorded a heck of a lot of singles – often in styles that were different than those used on the LPs, and often in modes that are a bit less "classic" than might be remembered. Some of these tunes are goofy and novelty type numbers, but others are quite striking slices of the singer's rich talents – numbers from soundtracks, duets with other artists, lost recordings of standards, and even a few tunes made uniquely Frank's own – and which are every bit as classic as his album recordings! A few of these numbers appear on the LPs that comprise the Facets box set, but many others do not – and a huge amount of them are from albums that used to be singles-only collections that Capitol let go out of print years ago. 96 tracks in all, with a booklet that goes through the tunes one by one!

✨✧ Keely SmithEssential Capitol Collection ... CD
Capitol, 1950s. Used ... $6.99
Lovely work from Keely Smith – the vocalist best known for her classic duets with Louis Prima in the 50s, but a singer who shines equally well on her own! This massive package is stuff with solo material that Keely recorded for Capitol in the 50s – plus a few Prima duets too, and two more done with Frank Sinatra! The backings are often by Sinatra's arranger Nelson Riddle, and have that perfect poise that Sinatra got back at Capitol – classy, jazzy, and swinging – a perfect fit for Keely's vocals. Titles include "Nothing In Common" and "How Are Ya Fixed For Love" with Sinatra, plus "All The Things You Are", "Stardust", "When Your Lover Has Gone", "All The Way", "The Whippoorwill", "There Will Never Be Another You", "Fools Rush In", "The Song Is You", "What Is This Thing Called Love", and "Autumn Leaves". 27 tracks in all – including a bonus live version of "When Day Is Done", recorded in Vegas in 1958.

A great slice of work from a nearly-lost side of Mel Torme's career – late 40s recordings for Capitol Records, some of the first tunes ever cut by The Velvet Fog! The Mel of these tunes is an extremely youthful one, but he's still singing with a tremendous style – smooth and right, in that mellifluous tone that we've always loved. The set features 21 titles in all – including "I've Got A Feeling I'm Falling", "Bewitched, Bothered & Bewildered", "Skylark", "Do Do Do", "Again", "Blue Moon", and "The Four Winds & The Seven Seas".

Capitol, 1968. Used ... $4.99
The landmark first album from The Band – and along with the follow-up, it's among the greatest records of its time – which is all the more astounding given how independent of late 60s trends it is! Each member of The Band brings such inimitable textures – Garth Hudson's imposing organ grooves, Richard Manuel's aching tenor vocals, Rick Danko's voice and distinctive bass lines, Levon Helm's behind-the-beat drumming and the country wisdom of his voice, Robertson's guitar mastery – this really was THE Band. Includes "Tears Of Rage", "In A Station", "The Weight", "Long Black Veil", "Chest Fever", "Lonesome Suzie", "This Wheels On Fire", "I Shall Be Released" and more. CD

BangBang ... CD
Capitol/Svart (Finland), 1971. New Copy ... $7.99
Heavy rock from this tripped-out trio – a Miami combo that really jams it up with some fuzzed-out lead guitar, snapping drums, and heavy bass! The sound is lean, but at times there's a Bowie-like quality to the vocals – plus the same sort of heavy energy of The Man Who Sold The World album – with the guitar getting all fuzzy and powerful, but never in an overindulgent way! Drums are super-strong too – almost giving the set a rock funk vibe at times – but the main showcase is clearly on the guitar from Frank Glicken and lead vocals from Frank Ferrara – two Franks who should have been huge. Titles include "Future Shock", "Questions", "Come With Me", "The Queen", "Redman", and "Our Home". CD

✨✧ Les BaxterFruit Of Dreams (Ports Of Pleasure/The Sacred Idol) ... CD
Capitol/El (UK), 1957/1960. Used ... $3.99
2 rare slices of exotica by Les Baxter – back to back on one CD! The first half of the set features material from the album Ports Of Pleasure – a dreamy exploration of south sea ideals that's got a more lightly drifting quality than some of Baxter's more percussive exotica albums, and which is awash in dreamy soundscapes penned by Les himself! The orchestrations are large and bold throughout – mixing strings and woodwinds almost in a soundtrack-y mode – but always with the light sense of interplay that makes Baxter's work so great. Titles include "Monkey Dance Of Bali", "Pearls Of Ceylon", "Tahiti A Summer Night At Sea", "Hong Kong Cable Car", "Tramp Steamer To Singapore", "Harem Silks From Bombay", and "Sidewalk Cafes Of Saigon". The Sacred Idol is a real standout set from the end of Les Baxter's run at Capitol Records – originally scored for a film that was never released, but a great set of tracks that more than stands strongly on its own! The theme here is a Mexican/Latin American one – explored by Baxter with his trademark blend of larger orchestrations and lighter exotica touches – often swirling around in an extremely evocative mode that makes us wish the film had been issued to the public, and at a few key moments even hinting at the funkier modes that would follow on some of Les' later work for other labels. Titles include "Aqueducts", "Gardens Of The Moon", "Pyramid Of The Sun", "Temple Of Gold", and "Procession Of The Princes". CD

Beach BoysPet Sounds – 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition (2CD set – mono/stereo/live/instrumental) ... CD
Capitol, 1966. New Copy 2CD ... $13.99 21.98
One of the greatest records of all time – and don't you forget it! Despite the countless lines of type that have been written about this record, nothing does it full justice like an all-through listen – something we're reminded of every time we put this one on the turntable, which is a heck of a lot over the years! Brian Wilson busted his ass making this little gem – and the rest of the world, and the band, were never the same again – awash in harmonies that most other groups tried to match, set to themes of young loss, longing, and frustration that really mark an emotional development – not just in the Beach Boys, but in pop music in general. And although some of the tracks are ones you've heard a million times on oldies stations, they somehow resonate together much more strongly here – taking on new meaning as the smaller elements of each song come into constellation with each other – creating a complicated tapestry of feelings set to near-godlike orchestrations. Titles include "God Only Knows", "Caroline No", "Pet Sounds", "I Just Wasn't Made for These Times", "Wouldn't It Be Nice", and "You Still Believe In Me". Great 2CD version – features the full mono and stereo mixes of the album – plus a 13 track instrumental album, and 11 previously-unreleased live recordings of tracks from the album from the late 60s through the early 80s.

Hard to deny the lasting power of this crucial album from The Beatles – a set that unleashed some of their trippiest sounds and most tender moments too! The mix of wit and honesty is wonderful – and the sonic range is dynamic as the archetypal cover image – a package that's had an undeniable impact on modern music for the past few decades!

Plus, this very special anniversary edition features a whole new stereo mix from the original tapes – as well as never-heard session material!

United Artists/Capitol, 1958. Used ... $2.99
A real corker from Benny Carter's revival period at the end of the 50s – a large group session recorded with a very strong horn section, arranged and produced by Benny himself! The album's got a "calendar" gimmick – in that each of the 12 songs feature a month in the name – but you've gotta thank Benny for getting past that simple trick and keeping things real with an unobtrusive title and cover – and some extremely strong arrangements that cook nicely no matter what the tune! Titles include "Swingin In November", "Something For October", "August Moon", "March Wind", and "February Fiesta". CD

Betty CarterInside Betty Carter ... CD
Capitol/United Artists, 1964. Used ... $4.99
One of the best records ever cut by jazz vocalist Betty Carter! Why? Well, because the session's got a tight stripped-down feel – but not as stripped down as some of Carter's mellower records – and it's also one of the first to show her in the straight jazz setting that would become her dominant format in the 70's and 80's. Unfettered by larger studio arrangements, Carter's at her jazzy best, and brings a rich amount of emotion and imagination to her interpretations of tracks like "This Is Always", "Some Other Time", "Something Big", and "There Is No Greater Love". The set also includes a phenomenal original composition – the captivating "Open The Door", which is one of Carter's best songs – and it's also got 7 tracks that weren't on the original album! CD

Capitol, 1950s. Used ... $4.99
A well-chosen batch of tunes from June Christy's legendary years at Capitol Records – material that really helped transform the sound of the voice in jazz during the 50s! The title says "jazz sessions", but given June's approach, that encompasses most of her sides for Capitol – and the CD features material from a decade's worth of albums – mostly arranged by Pete Rugolo or Bob Cooper. There's a tremendous amount of darkness in many of these tunes – a mix of cold and sweet that's simply breathtaking, and which is still a style that June does better than anyone else. 18 tracks in all – including "Remind Me", "I Want You To Be Happy", "My Ship", "Looking For A Boy", "Baby All The Time", "Day Dream", "Midnight Sun", "Fly Me To The Moon", "Make Someone Happy", "How High The Moon", and "Spring Can Really Hang You Up The Most".

Capitol, 1957. Used ... $9.99
Vocalist June Christy is one of the greatest under-recognized talents of the postwar era, and it's great to see that reissue CDs like this are finally getting her work back into the public again! Both albums on this CD were recorded in 1957, with arrangements by the icy genius Pete Rugolo, who worked earlier with Christy on her legendary Something Cool album. The records are both filled with haunting vocal tracks, twisted by Rugolo into complicated arrangements, and sung by Christy with a deep sense of sorrow and loneliness, masked by a weak smile that only seems to further emphasize Christy's inner pain. Titles include "When The Sun Comes Out", "It's So Peaceful In the Country", "When You Awake", "Better Luck Next Time", and "No More". 24 tracks in all – what a deal! CD

The package is way more than just a "best of" – because the compilers took their "spotlight on" title seriously, and have gone out of their way to showcase the best of June's work, even if the tracks aren't all big singles or hits. Titles include the previously unissued number "Until The Real Thing Comes Along", plus "Imagination", "He's Funny That Way", "The Song Is You", "How High The Moon", "I Remember You", "As Long As I Live", "When The Sun Comes Out", "Goodbye", "Bewitched", and "Midnight Sun".

Capitol, 1958/1960. Used ... $4.99
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 recordings with arranger Pete Rugolo, but still in a style that's definitely inspired by the classic work of albums like Something Cool and Off Beat. Backing is by a small group of LA jazzers – including Shelly Manne, Russ Freeman, Laurindo Almeida, Frank Rosolino, and Cooper – and titles include "My One & Only Love", "Blue Moon", "I Can Make You Love Me", "When Lights Are Low", and "Gypsy In My Soul". CD also features 4 tracks from the rare Cool School album – "Small Fry", "Looking For A Boy", "Aren't You Glad You're You", and "Baubles Bangles & Beads". CD
