✨✧ Lesley GoreGirl Talk ... LP
Mercury, 1964/1965. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Really tremendous work from Lesley Gore – and just the sort of record to show that she's way more than just another girl singer from the 60s! The sound here is incredibly groovy right from the start – a mix not just of the romping arrangements of Claus Ogerman (in his best Soul Searching mode), and the production of Quincy Jones – but also of Gore's great vocals, which have this surprising tinge of sexuality – and a depth that comes from the unique style of folding over her lead in the studio, to create a wide-flanged vocal approach! There's a sense of guts and lust here that goes past the usual weepy girl pop modes – a style that undeniably had an influence on other singers like Dusty Springfield or Cilla Black. Titles include "Hey Now", "You've Come Back", "Say Goodbye", "Live & Learn", "Movin Away", "It's Just About This Time", and "I Wish I Were A Boy". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Jackie TrentMagic Of Jackie Trent ... CD
Pye/El (UK), Late 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Definite magic from Jackie Trent – a great collection of work from one of the sweetest singers of the Brit pop scene of the 60s! There's a definite Bacharach influence happing on many of these tracks – a groove that's nicely syncopated, even when sweet – so that the mellower tunes retain a stepping sort of rhythm, and the more upbeat numbers really roll out with a nice sense of fullness. Jackie's vocals are somewhat pointed, to match the feel of these backings – a bit like those of her contemporaries Cilla Black and Petula Clark, but a bit different too. Most of the numbers were arranged by husband Tony Hatch, but the set also features a few handled by Johnny Harris and Bob Leaper as well. Titles include "7:10 From Suburbia", "Love So Fine", "Lazy Day", "The Joker", "While The City Sleeps", "Such A Small Love", "I'm A Fool To Want You", "The Sweetest Sounds", "It's Not Unusual", "To Show I Love Him", "When The Summertime Is Over", "Faces", "I Believe In You", and "This Time".

✨✧ Barbara RuskinLittle Of This – The Barbara Ruskin Songbook ... CD
President (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A dreamy collection of work by Barbara Ruskin – a lesser-known girl singer from the 60s Brit scene, but one who's fast rising to the top of our list with her work on this great set! Barbara's got a style that's similar to, but a bit different than that of contemporaries like Sandie Shaw, Dusty Springfield, or Cilla Black – because (as you'd guess from the acoustic guitar on the cover), Barbara's got a bit more of an influence from folk music – and as her recordings progress, she picks up some nice trippier elements that expand her sound past the usual UK girl pop mode, into a headier style that we really love. There's plenty of jingle-jangle in the mix here – and the CD's extremely well done, with the kind of notes and images we'd expect from Sanctuary or Cherry Red! Titles include "Pawnbroker Pawnbroker", "Light Of Love", "Euston Station", "Song Without End", "On South Street", "Information", "Almost", "You Can't Blame A Girl For Trying", "The 24th Day Of July", "The Loneliest Word In The World", and "Yesterday's Coffee".

✨✧ Marianne FaithfullNorth Country Maid/Love In A Mist (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Decca/BGO (UK), 1966/1967. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
A pair of incredible early albums from Marianne Faithfull – back to back in a single set – with six bonus tracks too! First up is North Country Maid – a set in which Marianne Faithfull takes on the world of folk music – but with results that are completely different than most of her contemporaries! The tunes are traditional – mixed with contemporary numbers by Tom Paxton, Ewan McColl, Bert Jansch, and Donovan – and the arrangements by Mick Taylor and Jon Mark, who also wrote some of the tracks, have a strong mix of acoustic guitar and strings – but in ways that are very different than other pop folk recordings of the period, especially those from the US – done with lots of darkness at the bottom, in a way that almost recalls the style Nick Drake was going for at the start! This approach is different than on some of Marianne Faithfull's other 60s records, and the record may well be one of the best she ever recorded – filled with great tunes that include "North Country Maid", "Lullaby", "Wild Mountain Thyme", "Green Are Your Eyes", "The Last Thing On My Mind", "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face", and "She Moved Thru The Fair". Love In A Mist is a seminal early album from Marianne Faithfull – and one that really shows the unique contributions she made to late 60s music in the UK! Faithfull was a key link between the older 60s British female singers – like Petula Clark, Cilla Black, and Sandy Shaw – and some of the hipper 70s songstresses to come – and that link was never more apparent than on this album, a sweet batch of 60s pop covers that are mostly familiar – but all done by Marianne in her unique vocal style, with plenty of dark, blue overtones that really transform the songs! Backings are by Mike Leander, who makes the tunes groove with a mixture of pop, rock, and folksy touches – and titles include "Our Love Has Gone", "Don't Make Promises You Can't Keep", "This Little Bird", "Ne Me Quitte Pas", "Counting", "Coquillage", and "Reason To Believe". Plus, the CD features 6 bonus tracks – "Mary Ann", "Come My Way", "Hang On To A Dream", "Monday Monday", "Rosie Rosie", and "The Most Of What Is Least". CD
