✨✧ Chris ConnorPortrait Of Chris ... CD
Atlantic/Collectors Choice, 1960. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".

✨✧ Everly BrothersEverly Brothers Sing Great Country Hits ... CD
Warner/Collectors Choice, 1963. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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 PrepsFour Preps On Campus/Campus Encore ... CD
Collectors Choice, Early 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Dreamy harmony vocals – in the mode of The Four Freshmen or the Hi-Los, but perhaps with a slightly more youthful bent (they are "preps" after all!) The CD brings together 2 of the Preps' best albums on Capitol – for a total of 19 tracks that include "Young & Foolish", "Their Hearts Were Full Of Spring", "He's Goin Away", "Heart & Soul", "Come To The Dance", "Sphinx Won't Tell", and "Suzy Cockroach". Also includes the "Big Draft medley" and the "More Money For You And Me medley". CD

✨✧ Linda LewisFathoms Deep ... CD
Reprise/Collectors Choice, 1973. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A wonderful album from Linda Lewis – certainly one of her best from the early days, and a completely captivating mixture of soul, jazz, and rock that sparkles like Minnie Riperton's best work from the time! The album's got a sweet LA sound – with Linda's great vocals up front in the mix, and lots of nice touches on acoustic guitar, almost foreshadowing the later work Sheree Brown with some nicely jazzy undercurrents! Lewis' sound here is great – very unique, warm and sweet, with a quality that really makes her stand out from other artists of her generation. Tracks include "Lullabye", "Fathoms Deep", "I'm In Love Again", "Play Around", "Wise Eyes", "On The Stage", and "Goodbye Joanna". CD

✨✧ Johnny MathisRapture/Romantically ... CD
Columbia/Collectors Choice, 1962/1963. Used 2 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A wonderful 2-fer – a double-dose of Johnny Mathis during his early Columbia years! Rapture is a record that really lives up to its title – a heady batch of tunes that use heavy string arrangements from Don Costa – never too light, and always lush enough to bring out the full depth of Mathis' amazing vocals – that rich tone that easily made Johnny one of the most distinct singers of his generation! Don keeps things pretty balanced throughout – never too sleepy or syrupy – and titles include "Here I'll Stay", "You've Come Home", "Moments Like This", "Rapture", and "I Was Telling Her About You". Romantically is a record dubbed with a title that might work for a variety of other Johnny Mathis albums, but which sounds especially nice here – in a set that's filled with lush backings arranged by Don Costa – all of which work perfectly with the deep-toned Mathis style! Titles include "Getting To Know You", "All That Is Missing", "Love Makes The World Go Round", "It's Only A Paper Moon", "September Song", and "In Winsconsin". CD

✨✧ Joe HarnellFly Me To The Moon & The Bossa Nova Pops ... CD
Collectors Choice, 1962. Used ... Out Of Stock
A pop instrumental album, but a really tremendous one – filled with snapping bossa rhythms, and recorded with a really wonderful sound! Pianist Joe Harnell is at the head of the set here – working the keys in a bold, echoey way that's a bit like Roger Williams – but the real star is almost the uncredited group of players on the record, because they come together wonderfully – with fluid strings, acoustic percussion, and some wonderful woodwind passages that glide like some of the best Brazilian orchestrations at the time – not to mention a saxophonist who adds some especially great touches to a few tracks! There's a boldness and flowing groove here that's really wonderful – far more than just a bossa rehash, and more an early attempt to work Brazilian influences towards American instrumental pop – and the whole thing's great throughout, on the bossa hit "Fly Me To The Moon", plus other tracks that include "You'd Be So Nice To Come Home To", "Eso Beso", "Loads Of Love", "Midnight Sun", "One Note Samba", and "Senza Fine".

✨✧ Dean MartinDream With Dean/Everybody Loves Somebody ... CD
Reprise/Collectors Choice, 1964. Used ... Out Of Stock
Two of Dean's best-selling albums – back to back on one CD! Dream With Dean has Dino singing in a smooth easy style – working in a mellow late nite mode that fits more with his late work for Capitol than the bulk of his work for Reprise. Dean sings wonderfully and warmly on a set of standards that includes "I'll Buy That Dream", "I'm Confessin", "Blue Moon", "I Don't Know Why", "Hands Across The Table", "Smile", and the original recording of "Everybody Loves Somebody". The follow-up album has Dean reprising "Everybody Loves Somebody" with arrangements by Jimmy Bowen – the genius producer who put a bit of a country twang and some 60s syncopation in Dean's records – and the whole album's a nice batch of easy pop tunes that shows the country style creeping into Dean's work. Titles include "Shutters & Boards", "Siesta Fiesta", "From Lover To Loser", "Face In A Crowd", and "A Little Voice". CD

✨✧ Dr JohnGris Gris ... CD
Atco/Collectors Choice, 1968. Used ... Out Of Stock
The great Dr John at his freaky deaky best – working here in a mindblowing mix of New Orleans roots and late 60s psych – all served up in some heady studio space and instrumental touches! The sound's unlike anything that ever went before – and is way better here than on some of John's later, straighter material – clearly the work of years of creative genius, as the Doctor, Mac Rebennack, draws on both his heritage from the Crescent City, and his years of work in the underground rock scene in LA! Harold Batiste handled the arrangements – and the record really paves the way for so many famous LA/New Orleans albums to come in the 70s – but never with results this mindblowingly trippy. The tracks are wild, funky, and messed-up New Orleans R&B filtered through a heavy dose of psychedelics – and titles include "Mama Roux", "Croker Courtbullion", "Gris Gris Gumbo Ya Ya", and the original version of "I Walk On Guilded Splinters".

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.
