Claudine LongetClaudine ... CD
A&M (Japan), Late 60s. Used ... $16.99
French pop meets LA production – and the result is some of the best work ever recorded by A&M Records – a gently groovy, slightly sexy sound that really helped define the label in its early years! Claudine Longet's got a gentle Parisian style of singing that's perfect, simply perfect, on this first LP – set to lightly groovy arrangements by the great Nick DeCaro, gliding through a host of tunes that encompasses some of the grooviest hits of the decade – from soundtrack numbers to bossa tunes to familiar numbers that sparkle anew with Claudine's brilliance! Titles include "A Man and A Woman", "Wanderlove", "Meditation", "My Guy", "Sunrise Sunset", "A Felicidade", and "Hello Hello". CD

Claudine LongetCuddle Up With Claudine Longet – Barnaby Records Sessions 1970/74 ... CD
Vampi Soul (Spain), Early/Mid 70s. Used ... $22.99
Very nice work by the lovely Claudine Longet – later tracks than her more famous A&M recordings of the 60s, tunes dune for Barnaby records in the early 70s! The feel here steps off nicely from Claudine's A&M sides – getting a bit hipper, a bit deeper, and taking on some of the more open-ended singer-songwriter styles of the time. Arrangements on the material are by Nick DeCaro and Dann Lottermoser, and titles include "Birds", "Remember The Good", "Sleep Song", "All Alone Am I", "Sugar Me", "Cry Me A River", "Broomstick Cowboy", "They Long To Be Close To You", and "You Don't Have To Be A Baby To Cry".

Claudine LongetLove Is Blue ... CD
A&M (Japan), 1968. Used ... $16.99
Always-great work from lovely French singer Claudine Longet – a vocalist with a style that's unlike anyone else we can think of! This one's another sublime blend of French 60s pop and sunny A&M production – arranged to perfection by the great Nick DeCaro, with touches that deepen the album from earlier work – like chorus vocals, more ambitious instrumentation, and even some guest duet vocals from Tommy Lipuma! Claudine is incredible throughout – a masterpiece of gentle understatement – and she sparkles on tunes that include "Happy Talk", "Who Needs You", "Walk In The Park", "Snow", "When I Look In Your Eyes", "Dindi", and "Love is Blue".

Nick De CaroHappy Heart ... CD
A&M/Polygram (Japan), 1969. Used ... $14.99
One of the few albums as an artist from the great Nick De Caro – one of the hipper arrangers of the 60s, best known for his collaborations with Claudine Longet on A&M! Nick's a very subtle genius – one who can work firmly inside the mainstream, but also bring something different to the table – a magical way of inflecting a tune, spare use of silence, or controlled emotion that always made his backings a perfect fit for the adult sound of A&M. Instrumentation here is heavily strings, but never in a syrupy, sleepy way – and many numbers feature a standout lead instrument – such as piano by Lincoln Mayorga, soprano sax by Gabe Balthazar, or tenor sax by Bill Perkins. Nick sings on 2 tracks – "I'm Gonna Make You Love Me" and "Caroline No" – in this compressed style that's totally wonderful – and other titles include "Love is All", "Quiet Sunday", "Lullaby From Rosemary's Baby", "Happy Heart", and "I'll Forget You".

✨✧ Margo Guryan29 Demos (red & blue vinyl pressing) ... LP
Modern Harmonic, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Really wonderful work from Margo Guryan – an artist who was probably known more as a songwriter than a singer – especially for her groovy late 60s pop tunes! This package is heavy on those gems – presented in these great demo takes that are nice and stripped-down – often with just a bit of rhythm and electric piano in support of Guryan's sweet vocals – which echo the modes of Claudine Longet and some of the other artists of the time who sung her music. The set's an expanded version of a previous collection, and features great work from the late 60s and early 70s – titles that include "I Don't Intend To Spend Christmas Without You", "Sun", "The 8:17 Northbound Success Merry Go Round", "Sunday Morning", "I Love", "I'd Like To See The Bad Guys Win", "California Shake", "Why Do I Cry", "Under My Umbrella", and "Timothy Gone". LP package features two tracks not issued on the CD set – and also includes a Chip Taylor demo of "Someone I Know" and Malcolm McNeill demo of "Think Of Rain". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousEasy Christmas Now – Groovy Carols For A Cozy Winter ... CD
Bureau B (Germany), 1960s/1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A wonderfully groovy set of Christmas tracks – one done in a style very similar to the Get Easy Snow compilations – as you might guess from the title! The selection here is great – with a few perennial favorites, a few rare gems, and a great middle stretch of wonderful bits from some of the grooviest artists of the 60s and 70s – a great antidote to some of the too-played holiday music you might hear during the 12th month of the year! Titles include "Santa Claus Is Definitely Hear To Stay" by James Brown, "Close Your Mouth It's Christmas" by Free Design, "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus" by Jimmy McGriff, "Snow" by Claudine Longet, "Black Christmas" by The Emotions, "Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer" by The Temptations, "Christmas Gift" by Margie Joseph, "Winter Warm" by Bob Crewe Generation, "Snow Flakes" by The Ventures, "Winter Symphony" by The Beach Boys, "This Christmas" by Donny Hathaway, "Children Go Where I Send Thee" by Kenny Burrell, "We Wish You A Merry Christmas" by Ray Anthony & His Bookends, "Swinging Christmas" by Helmut Zacharias, and "Jingo Jango" by Bert Kaempfert.

✨✧ VariousSnow – The Get Easy Christmas Collection ... CD
Universal (Germany), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Waaaaaaay more than a collection of Holiday Music – simply one of the grooviest sets we've heard in a long long time! The compilation is the 5th in the stellar Get Easy series, and it more than lives up to previous volumes with a wealth of hard to find Christmas tunes, served up in a late 60s glimmer that's as seductive as its lovely package! There's loads of wonderful tunes on here that we wouldn't have known of otherwise, interspersed with a few more familiar numbers – all rolling together in a joyous blend of jazz, funk, and groovy – one you'll be going back to all year long, despite the weather outside. Titles include "Sleigh Ride" by Soulful Strings, "The Bell That Couldn't Jingle" by Burt Bacharach, "Snow" by Claudine Longet, "Christmas Love" by Rotary Connection, "You're All I Want For Christmas" by Brook Benton, "What Christmas Means To Me" by Stevie Wonder, "Ten Below" by Chris & Peter Allen, "Jing Jing A Ling" by Honey & The Bees, "Purple Snowflakes" by Marvin Gaye, "White Christmas" by Jimmy Smith, "This Christmas" by Donny Hathaway, "It's Christmas Time Once Again" by Brian Hyland, and the super-rare Scott Walker tune "Winter Night"!

✨✧ Goldie HawnGoldie (with bonus track) ... CD
Reprise (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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". CD features the bonus track "Pitta Patta". CD
