Claudine LongetHello, Hello – The Best Of Claudine Longet ... CD
A&M/Rev-Ola (UK), Late 60s. Used ... $8.99
Dreamy vocals, catchy tunes, bossa rhythms – it's gotta be Claudine Longet! During the late 60s, Claudine first warmed ears in America with a lovely take on the gentle sounds of the Astrud Gilberto era – a French-accented approach to mellow vocal pop, often touched with a bit of jazz or Brazilian rhythms in the arrangements, and often delivered on a pillow of sensuous sound by master arranger Nick DeCaro! Claudine got her fair share of bad press in later years, but on this set she's at the height of her early brilliance – working with a lighter-than-air approach to vocals, and a simple, almost naive style that makes even the lyrics of familiar tunes resonate with youthful freshness. CD features 25 tracks from Claudine's years at A&M Records, including some great non-LP tracks – titles that include "Hurry On Down", "Hello Hello", "White Horses", "The Look Of Love", "Small Talk", "Snow", "I Don't Intend To Spend Christmas Without You", "Creators Of Rain", "A Man & A Woman", "Meditation", "Both Sides Now", and "Walk In The Park".

Goldie HawnGoldie (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Reprise (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... About June 15, 2016
A rare vocal outing from Goldie Hawn – recorded early in her career, and kind of a seminal shift away from the goofier side of her Laugh-In years! The style is surprisingly heartfelt, and quite intimate – a bit like that of Claudine Longet's later records at times, which is well suited to Goldie's voice, and no surprise considering that Longet's maestro Nick DeCaro had a hand in the set. Other tracks, though, bring in a bit more of a country influence – which is somewhat odd, but a really nice surprise in this setting – and shows a bit more depth than we'd expect from Hawn. Goldie's got some help on the record from Dolly Parton, Porter Wagoner, and Buck Owens & The Buckaroos – and titles include the wonderful "The House Song", plus "Carey", "Cloudy Summer", "Ring Bell", "Pasadena", "My Blue Tears", and "Uncle Pen".
