BB & Q BandGenie ... CD
Elektra/Collectors Choice, 1985. Used ... $14.99
The last true classic from the masters of the 80s groove genre – a post-Capitol effort for Elektra, but one that's still awash in great keyboards and snapping electro beats! Some of the jazzier sound from the past is gone here, but in its place is a leaner, cleaner sound that's still a fair bit more compelling than most work by the group's contemporaries! Nearly all tracks snap along with rhythms that are nicely placed between the street and the dancefloor – never gimmicky and never too cloying, and tightly focused enough to make the most of the hooks in the vocals. Lots of DX7 on the album, and more than a few numbers have a great sort of breakdance vibe. Tracks include "Riccochet" and "Dreamer" – both remixed by Shep Pettibone –"On The Shelf", "Genie", "Main Attraction", and "Don't Force It". CD

Chris ConnorPortrait Of Chris ... CD
Atlantic/Collectors Choice, 1960. Used ... $6.99
A very moody album from Chris Connor – one that features arrangements by Ronnie Ball and Jimmy Jones, on a somber set of songs that makes the album one of Chris' darkest for Atlantic! Most of the tunes are in small group settings – a bit tightly arranged, but in a good way that gives the record a kind of June Christy sort of sound – never to overdone on the vocal tip, with a sense of restraint that only further creates tensions in the tunes! There's a level of sophistication here that's way different than the somewhat cheesy image on the cover – and titles include "Where Flamingos Fly", "Alone Together", "I'm Glad There Is You", "If I Should Lose You", "Here's That Rainy Day", and "Love".

✨✧ Sammy Davis JrNat King Cole Songbook ... CD
Collectors Choice/Reprise, 1965. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A fitting set, in some way – as Sammy's rise in the 60s was equivalent to Nat's at the end of the 40s – but you've gotta admit, Sammy's vocals are quite quite different from those of Cole! Don't think of this one as a "tribute", so much as it's a collection of classic time-tested songs – all delivered by Sam with that Wham that he was bringing to his best Reprise work of the time. Arrangers include Billy May, Marty Paich, Claus Ogerman, and Johnny Keating – all of whom are working in that wonderful 60s easy style that fit Sammy's voice so well – a surprisingly spacious sound, and one that always seems to have a hint of rhythm, even on the mellowest tracks! Great stuff all around, and with tracks that include "Pretend", "Unforgettable", "Straighten Up & Fly Right", "Sweet Lorraine", "Send For Me", and "Walkin My Baby Back Home". CD

✨✧ Sammy Davis JrWhat Kind Of Fool Am I & Other Show Stoppers ... CD
Collectors Choice/Reprise, 1962. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Sammy belts it out wonderfully on a set of show-stoppers – tunes with Broadway sources, but redone here by Sam with a tight, jazzy finish! The approach makes the record one of his best of the 60s – a really solid set that virtually reinvents each tune – giving them the Davis positive spin, and really stepping out strongly on titles that include "Once In A Lifetime", "Begin The Beguine", "Something's Coming", "Can't We Be Friends", "Too Close For Comfort", and "A Lot Of Livin To Do".

✨✧ Four FreshmenMore Four Freshmen & Five Trombones/In Person Vol 2 ... CD
Capitol/Collectors Choice, Mid 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Late Capitol work by the Four Freshmen – 2 albums that are some of the most obscure in their catalog! More 4 Freshmen & Five Trombones is a fitting follow-up to the group's original album – one of the best in their 50s catalog, thanks largely to Pete Rugolo, who makes a return appearance here to handle the arrangements. The sound is sublime – with tracks that are a bit more in the 60s mode of things, but still arranged to perfection by Rugolo. Four Freshmen In Person Volume 2 is another set of live recordings by the group – something that might seem discontinuous with their magical studio work of the 50s, but which only goes to show how great they really are – as the boys perform wonderfully in the live setting, using no studio tricks to get their unique vocal sound, making us wish we had the opportunity to see them live at the time! There's a total of 23 cuts in all – and titles include "The Second Time Around", "Midnight Sun", "Girl From Ipanema", "More", "Taste Of Honey", "Days Of Wine & Roses", "Poinciana", "Wail For The Bread", and "Act III".

✨✧ Sammy Davis Jr with Sam Butera & The WitnessesWhen The Feeling Hits You – Recorded Wild In Las Vegas ... CD
Reprise/Collectors Choice, Early 60s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Sam Butera and the Witnesses are mostly heard backing up Louie Prima, and we're not sure how they managed to hook up with Sammy, but the result is a great set of tracks that has a lot more "umph!" than some of Sammy's other Reprise sides. The group is tight and jazzy, and even though the track list is mostly standards, the whole thing swings nicely – even the ballads! Titles include "Don't Cry Joe", "When The Feeling Hits You", "Cry Me A River", "April In Paris", and "I Should Care". CD

VariousKickin Presents Pride 70s Groove – DJ's Choice 1972 to 1974 – Selected By Daisuke Kuroda ... CD
Pride/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Early 70s. New Copy ... $26.99
Fantastic funk from a legendary label – even if it was just sort of an offshoot imprint at the time! Pride issued a handful of albums back in the early 70s, most in partnership with MGM – but nearly every one of the company's records is a well-remembered gem with funk collectors all these many years later – as Pride had a great way of keeping the grooves sharp, even when the tunes had sweeter vocals over the top! This 20 track set is a fantastic selection of tunes from the short years of Pride – both vocal and instrumental numbers, with titles that include "I'm Gonna Love You Just A Little More Baby" by Jimmy Smith, "Kiburi (part 1)" by Incredible Bongo Band, "Misdemeanor" by Foster Sylvers, "Melinda Latino" by Jerry Butler, "If You Can't Satisfy" by Hetti Lloyd, "Fool's Paradise" by The Sylvers, "Simple Things" by Lady Lee, "Why Can't We Live Together" by Jimmy Smith, "Only One Can Win" by The Sylvers, "Whatever's Fair" by Billy Butler & Infinity, "Part 3" by Jerry Butler & Jerry Peters, "Grief Sorry Pain & Woe" by Hetti Lloyd, "More Love" by Foster Sylvers, and "We Can Make It If We Try" by The Sylvers.

✨✧ VariousGolden Torch – Tunstall, Stoke-On-Trent 1969 to 1973 ... LP
Outta Sight (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. Sealed ... $19.99
A hotbed of soul tracks that played big at the legendary Golden Torch – one of the most famous hotspots for Northern Soul on the British scene at the end of the 60s! But as with the best Brit clubs of its type, the music here is all American – a choice collection of under-discovered soul gems from the US – of the sort that UK collectors were already turning up decades ago, then unleashing on dancefloors who were ready to devour music that had hardly gotten any sort of a notice back home! The track list is great – classic enough to be remembered well from these days, but still pretty darn obscure to most fans of American soul of the 60s – 14 smoking tracks that include "Blowing Up My Mind" by The Exciters, "Slide Tomatoes" by Just Brothers, "Compared To What" by Mr Floods Party, "Quick Change Artist" by The Soul Twins, "Walk Like A Man" by Johnny Moore, "Keep On Keepin On" by NF Porter, "Crackin Up Over You" by Roy Hamilton, "You Don't Want Me No More" by Major Lance, "I Worship You Baby" by The Glories, "The Slow Fizz" by The Sapphires, and "Bok To Bach" by Father's Angels. LP, Vinyl record album
