✨✧ Graham BondSolid Bond ... CD
Warner/Collectors Choice, 1970. Used ... $7.99
Certainly solid work from Graham Bond – working here with an all-star lineup who really make the record cook nicely! The set features some of Bond's best contemporaries – all players who, like him, had started out in simpler mod 60s modes, but had really matured strongly by the time of this date – moving into a range of complicated jazz and rockish expressions in their own music, but uniting here with Graham for a set that's still got a nice old school groove! In a time when some of the jazz rock groups were getting a bit excessive, this album's nicely restrained – shortish tracks that focus strongly on tight hooks and soulful rhythms, but all in ways that still sound plenty adventurous. Bond plays Hammond and sings, and other guests include Jack Bruce, Ginger Baker, Dick Heckstall-Smith, and John McLaughlin – on titles that include "Can't Stand It", "Walkin In The Park", "Long Legged Baby", "Doxy", "The Grass Is Greener", "It's Not Goodbye", "Neighbor Neighbor", and "Springtime In The City".

✨✧ Everly BrothersEverly Brothers Sing Great Country Hits ... CD
Warner/Collectors Choice, 1963. Used ... $12.99
If you ever needed a record to prove to you the genius of The Everly Brothers, this may well be it – a sublime session that has the do really returning to their roots! Everly Brothers Sing Great Country Hits have the pair doing just that – reworking more famous country numbers in their own sweet harmony style – in a way that pays tribute to their Kentucky roots, yet which also nicely updates the tunes for a sweeter 60s pop sound – all with impeccable production that really opens up the tracks, in that uniquely heartfelt Everly mode! Titles include "Lonely Street", "Oh Lonesome Me", "Send Me The Pillow That You Dream On", "Release Me", "Please Help Me I'm Falling", and "I Walk The Line". CD

Four Freshmen5 Trombones & 5 Trumpets ... CD
Capitol/Collectors Choice, Late 50s. Used ... $4.99
Nice one! We've always loved the swinging vocal harmonies of the Four Freshmen, but their best records have never been issued before on CD. Now, though, Collector's Choice have put out two of their best on one CD, and the set's got a whopping 24 cuts of groovy groovy harmony sounds that have influenced everyone from Brian Wilson to Lambert, Hendricks, & Ross. Both records feature stunning off-kilter arrangments by the great Pete Rugolo, who puts the material together in a way that's similar to his work on the classic June Christy sessions for Capitol from the same time. Groovy tracks abound, including "Love Is Just Around The Corner", "The Last Time I Saw Paris", "Somebody Loves Me", "Give Me the Simple Life", and "The Night We Called It A Day". Very groovy, but with a dark edge that's even more compelling! CD

✨✧ Dick GregoryIn Living Black & White ... CD
Colpix/Collectors Choice, 1961. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Sharp-edged wit from a young Dick Gregory – and the kind of record that easily set the standard for countless comics to come! The tracks here are mostly free-form – still structured into a few routines, but also pretty easygoing and open – with more of the openly rapping sort of approach also used by Lenny Bruce and Mort Sahl at the time. Gregory's certainly got all the politics of the latter, focused into his own unique perspective – one that was a key force of change in the Civil Rights era. Titles include "The Congo Daily Tribune", "Comedians Of The 60s", "Thoughts On Outer Space", and "Not Poor Just Busted". CD

✨✧ Art Van DammeOnce Over Lightly/Manhattan Time ... CD
Collectors Choice, Mid 50s. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Two more groovy albums from Art Van Damme and his other-worldly accordion! Both records feature Van Damme's trademark jazzy style, with haunting breathy instrumentation, and a sound that's incredibly eerie. The album Once Over Lightly features guest vocals by Jo Stafford, who keeps things nice and mellow to match the group's icy sound – and the album Manhattan Time is the aptly-titled follow-up to Van Damme's classic Martini Time, with a similar sexy seduction-drenched sound (although steeped in bourbon, not vodka!) Titles include "Almost Like Being In Love", "But Not For Me", "Glory Of Love", "Poinciana", "Turnabout", "Polka Dots & Moonbeams", and "I Saw Stars". CD

✨✧ Four FreshmenStars In Our Eyes/The Swingers ... CD
Collectors Choice, Early 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Two rare ones from The Four Freshmen – albums that never turn up on vinyl, and which are some of their best work of the 60s! Both albums have the group working in a tight jazzy mode – layering their harmonies with arrangements that are a bit more sophisticated than some of their earlier pop, but which also have a more straight jazz sound in parts. Stars In Our Eyes is a bit more pop sounding – but the overall feel of both records is great, and you can't beat the boys great harmonies! Titles include "Lulu's Back In Town", "Lullaby Of Birdland", "Dynaflow", "Teach Me Tonight", "Imagination", "Opus One", "Green Fields", "Taps Miller", "I'm Gonna Go Fishin", and "Let's Take A Walk Around The Block".

✨✧ Peggy LeeLet's Love ... CD
Atlantic/Collectors Choice, 1974. Used ... Out Of Stock
An incredibly lovely later album from Peggy Lee – her first album for Atlantic, and proof that she was still growing tremendously as an artist, well into the 70s! The record's title track was a tune written for Peggy by Paul McCartney, who also produced the number for the record – and it's got a wonderful "adult" feel – one that steps off even more from Peggy's last Capitol recordings. But in some way, the real star of the album is Dave Grusin – who co-produced the rest of the record along with Peggy, and who gives the session a warmly laidback jazz-based approach – one that's miles away from Peggy's 60s work, and handled in a maturely mellow groove that's totally great. The sound is tight, but never too slick – and Peggy's aging vocals sparkle beautifully amidst a host of modern tunes that include "He Is The One", "The Heart Is A Lonely Hunter", "You Make Me Feel Brand New", "Sweet Lov'liness", "Sweet Talk", "Always", and the funky classic "Easy Evil".

✨✧ Mel TormeMel Torme At The Red Hill/Live At The Maisonette ... CD
Atlantic/Collectors Choice, Early 60s/Early 70s. Used ... Out Of Stock
2 classic rare albums by Mel Torme – both of them very live! Mel's swinging jazz vocals are always a treat, but he really opens up in a warm live setting – as you'll hear on this 2-in-1 CD that brings together 2 older albums from his years at Atlantic. The Red Hill sessions are great – and feature Mel swinging hard with a tight jazz group, on nice little numbers like "Love For Sale", "Love Is Just Around the Corner", "Shakin The Blues Away", and "In Other Words". His voice is perfect, and it's great to hear how he keeps his wonderful tone, even in a live setting. The other album's a bit later, and a bit schmaltzier, but Mel's still got a heartwarming quality that makes the music work, even when it shouldn't. Nice numbers on that one include "Jet Set", "What Are You Doing The Rest Of Your Life", "Superstition", and "It Takes Too Long To Live Alone". CD

✨✧ VariousGolden Torch – Tunstall, Stoke-On-Trent 1969 to 1973 ... LP
Outta Sight (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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 ... Out Of Stock
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.
