Dinah ShoreBouquet Of Blues ... LP
RCA, 1956. Very Good ... $4.99
Dinah Shore's definitely got a bouquet of blues here – thanks to some backings that echo the moody, late nite image on the cover! The set's one of Shore's most blue-hued ever – a surprisingly beautiful little record that features orchestrations from Henri Rene, Frank DeVol, and Harry Zimmerman – all with styles that slightly echo older eras of jazz, but which never get too hokey, or resort to any easy cliches. In a way, there's almost a sharper modern edge going on amidst some of the more traditional modes – and Shore's vocals are a bit part of that, thanks to a wonderful recording style that has them right up front in the mix, coming across with incredible clarity. Titles include "Bouquet Of Blues", "Moanin Low", "Lonesome Gal", "Blues In The Night", "Born To Be Blue", "Memphis Blues", "What Can I Say After I'm Sorry", and "I Got It Bad & That Ain't Good". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label mono pressing with deep groove. Cover has half split seams.)

Gisele MacKenzieGisele MacKenzie ... LP
Vik, 1956. Very Good+ ... $2.99
Lovely work from entertainer Gisele MacKenzie – working here in a sweet set of 50s RCA backings! Gisele's got help on the record from arrangers Sid Bass, Neal Hefti, and George Siravo – each of whom bring a slightly different feel to their tunes, and show the full range of the Gisele MacKenzie style at the time. Most numbers are jazzy, with a bit of strings – and although some numbers get a bit romantic, there's a surprising amount of swing in the set too – almost like some of Dinah Shore's work for the label. Titles include "You Are My Lucky Star", "Everytime We Say Goodbye", "Do You Ever Think Of Me", "These Foolish Things", "Don't Worry About Me", and "On Top Of The World Alone". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original Vik pressing with deep groove. Cover has some some marker and a light crease on front, with a bit of pen on back.)

✨✧ VariousTwas The Night Before Hanukkah – The Musical Battle Between Christmas & The Festival Of Lights ... CD
Idelsohn Society, 1930s/1940s/1950s/1960s/1970s/1980s/1990s/2000s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
A musical package that really gets at the cultural tension of the twelfth month of the year – the "battle between Christmas and the festival of lights", to quote the title – served up here in a double-length collection of unusual seasonal songs! CD one features unusual Hanukkah numbers, mostly from the 20th century – including some very traditional tunes and great tongue in cheek remakes – most of which we've never heard before. CD two is even cooler, though – a whole set of Christmas tunes, but played by Jewish artists – illustrating the cultural challenges that come from working in the mainstream during the Holidays! The mix of tunes is pretty great – from rock numbers to vocal jazz, folk, and a bit of easy listening – some familiar, some obscure – and again a pretty great set of tracks! The package also comes with an oversize book that details the songs and features some key writings on the "battle" – and the 2CD set features 34 tracks that include "Little Drummer Boy" by Bob Dylan, "Grandma's Dreidel" by Mickey Katz, "Hanukah Tree" by the Klezmatics, "Twelve Days Of Christmas" by Dinah Shore, "Holiday ID" by Lou Reed, "El Dia De La Navidad" by Larry Harlow, "Santa Claus Came In The Spring" by Benny Goodman, "It's Christmas All Over The World" by Sammy Davis Jr, "I Got A Cold For Christmas" by The Ames Brothers, "A Chanukah Quiz" by Gladys Gewirtz, "Hanukkah Dance" by Woody Guthrie, "Twas The Night Before Chanukah" by Stanley Adams & Sid Wayne, "The Latke Song" by Debbie Friedman, "O Little Town Of Bethlehem" by Richard Tucker, and "The Problem" by Ray Brenner & Barry Blitzer.
