✨✧ Four FreshmenBest Of The Four Freshmen – The Liberty Years ... CD
Collectors Choice, 1960s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The Four Freshmen certainly got groovy during their years at Liberty Records – moving past the more subdued harmony quartet style of their Capitol years, into a style that was a bit more mod, and which included hitting some material that might have been more appropriate for the younger crowd. We'll be honest in saying that for years, we never rated this material highly – as we were always such traditionalists with the male harmony sound. But lately, as our ears have opened more, we actually really appreciate this sort of work – as the style is possibly even more complex and difficult than the group's earlier recordings! Titles include "Old Friends", "Misty Roses", "Girl Talk", "A Man & A Woman", "Everyday People", "Fools Rush In", "Walk On By", and "California My Way". CD

✨✧ Anita KerrBert Kaempfert Turns Us On ... CD
Warner/Collectors Choice, 1967. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Hard to imagine Anita Kerr being turned on – especially given her school marm-ish look on the cover – but the album's a pretty darn groovy set, and one that certainly shows Kerr picking up some of the best easy elements of the 60s! The Burt Kaempfert touch is heard here especially in the album's use of electric bass – a nicely bouncing element that gives most of the tunes a lot more of a bottom than some of Kerr's other work – used in that trademark stepping style that Burt first laid down himself a few years before on worldwide instrumental hits, and made even better here by Anita's great quartet and their warmly-crafted vocal harmonies! Titles include many tunes presented in a Kaempfert-styled way – but with vocals – and tracks include "Love", "I Can't Help Remembering You", "Two Can Live On Love Alone", 'Spanish Eyes", "Remember When", "Danke Schoen", "Strangers In The Night", "Wonderland By Night", and "A Swingin' Safari".

✨✧ Morgana KingWild Is Love ... CD
Reprise/Collectors Choice, 1966. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A playfully swinging little set from Morgana King – given the groovy, latenight lounge Reprise sound by producer Jimmy Bowen! This second album for Reprise is a much more extroverted than the quite strong It's A Quiet Thing LP from a year before – with arranger Torrie Zito grooving out into a lightly swinging sound, in place of his chillier, almost noir approach on the previous LP! Morgana's vocals are tastefully grand – doing more with a hushed tone and an unrivaled vibrato than many more famous peers can do with a showier style! Titles include "Anything Goes", "Nobody Else But Me", "I Thought Of You Last Night", "You Fascinate Me So", "The Best Is Yet To Come", "Wild Is Love" and more. CD

✨✧ Peggy LeeMake It With You/Where Did They Go (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Capitol/Collectors Choice, 1970/1971. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
2 later Capitol gems from Peggy Lee – on a single CD, and with some bonus tracks too! Make It With You is very cool work from Peggy – mostly with arrangements by Benny Golson, and done in a really wonderful style for the 70s! The work's every bit as mature as her other Capitol sides from the time, but it's also got a bit more confidence too – a style that somehow offsets the melancholy of these years with a subtle positive sensibility too, possibly from Golson's presence. Titles include a great version of "Passenger Of The Rain" – the title track to Francis Lai's soundtrack for Le Passager De La Pluie – and other tracks include "Make It With You", "The Long & Winding Road", "That's What Living is All About", "You'll Remember Me", "I've Never Been So Happy In My Life", and "One More Ride On The Merry Go Round". Where Did They Go is brilliant late work by Peggy Lee – following strongly on the heels of Is That All There Is, and done with a style that's even sadder, and more life-weary! The title cut – "Where Did They Go" – is simply amazing – the kind of boozy, regretful tune that never seemed to exist before Sinatra on Reprise, and which could barely be handled as well by anyone but Peggy. Other tracks are pretty incredible too – a blend of lesser pop tracks done in a hip style by Don Sebesky and Al Capps. Titles include "I Was Born In Love With You", "My Rock & Foundation", "Goodbye Again", "My Sweet Lord", and "Losing My Mind". CD features 4 bonus tracks too – including "No More", "You're Driving Me Crazy", "Pieces Of Dreams", and "Didn't We". CD

✨✧ Peggy LeeTwo Shows Nightly (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Capitol/Collectors Choice, 1968. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Previously-unreleased genius from Peggy Lee – a live Copacabana performance recorded in 1968, even packaged for issue by Capitol, but eventually never put out as a full record! The material is great – that wonderfully mature Peggy from the later part of the 60s, but still recorded with some of the jazzy swing of the early 60s too – a beautiful balance that would have made the set a key transitional album if it was issued at the time, and which continues to make it a delight to our ears, finally hearing the date in the 21st Century! Titles include "Hand On The Plow", "My Personal Property", "Didn't Want To Have To Do It", "Reason To Believe", "What Is A Woman", "Come Back To You", and "Do I Hear A Waltz". But even better, the set features 12 more bonus tracks – some unreleased numbers, some rare Capitol singles – with titles that include "Stay With Me", "I Wound It Up", "Money", "It'll Never Happen Again", "Misty Roses", "The Lonesome Road", "I Feel It", "Reason To Believe (single)", and "Happy Feet".

✨✧ Dean MartinCha Cha de Amor ... CD
Capitol/Collectors Choice, Early 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Dean Martin does a batch of Latiny material, with cha cha cha orchestrations by Nelson Riddle. Not straight Latin stuff, but a very different take on Dino's style, and a cool way to hear him sing – even if it's not the right side of the Atlantic. A dozen tracks in all, including "Somebody Loves You", "I Wish You Love", "A Hundred Years From Today", "I Love You Much Too Much" and "Amor". CD

✨✧ Dionne WarwickMagic Of Believing ... CD
Scepter/Collectors Choice, 1968. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Quite an unusual album for Dionne Warwick – a late 60s effort that has her returning to her gospel roots, and singing with backing from The Drinkard Sisters – a group originally founded by Dionne's mother, and which featured a young Cissy Houston! The sound here isn't as strictly gospel as you might expect – and in a way, it's almost an exploration of some of the more spiritual themes that echoed on some of Dionne's earlier hits written by Burt Bacharach – those slow-building and soulful moments that were themselves a reflection of Warwick's earlier roots. The arrangements aren't credited here, but they're also not as "churchy" as you might expect – and still have some of the sophistication of Bacharach backings from previous albums. Titles include "Somebody Bigger Than You & I", "The Magic Of Believing", "Steal Away", "Grace", and "In The Garden". CD

VariousGolden Torch – Tunstall, Stoke-On-Trent 1969 to 1973 ... LP
Outta Sight (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $14.99
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.

VariousHarmony Of The Soul – Vocal Groups 1962 to 1977 ... CD
Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
An incredible collection based around one of our favorite styles of soul music ever – the smooth, mellow male group soul approach that flourished strongly in the late 60s and early 70s – as kind of a more mature, sophisticated take on earlier doo wop modes! Like the previous format, the approach here is very heavy on vocal interplay – but never in a mode that's too overdone, nor filled with tricks and turns – and which instead has the quartet or quintet voices coming together in these completely sublime ways – gliding, stepping, and mellow-grooving along – in an assortment of tracks that are all pretty darn rare, and which includes nine tracks that appear here for the first time ever! The sound quality is wonderful, and the notes are very detailed – and the whole thing's way better than any sort of dodgy package that group soul collectors usually have to settle for – done in the same approach as the In Perfect Harmony series on Kent. Titles include "For The Rest Of My Days" by The Pretenders, "Why Can't It Be" by The Windjammers, "Girl Girl Girl" by The Determinations, "I Destroyed Your Love (part 1)" by Special Delivery, "Send My Baby Back" by San Francisco TKOs, "Where Or When" by The Superbs, "Shady Lady" by Choice Of Colors, "Whatcha Gonna Do Baby" by The Lovers, "Let Me Take Care Of Your Heart" by The Smith Brothers, "Without A Word" by The MMs & The Peanuts, and "Crying Bitter Tears" by The Steelers.
