Ruth OlayEasy Living ... LP
Mercury, 1956. Near Mint- ... $9.99
Ruth Olay's billed on the cover as a "singing discovery of the Jack Paar Show" – and she's got a vocal approach that must have been dynamite on TV! At times, her tones are quite low – almost the dusky style of Dinah Shore – but she's also got a pretty dynamic quality too, one that rises nicely to meet the horn-heavy backings on the set from Jerry Fielding. Some of the best tunes have a bluesy trilling style – one that's quite unique, and which definitely marks Olay as the discovery promised by the cover. Titles include "Easy Living", "Just Sittin & A Rockin", "Hurry Hurry", "Tess' Torch Songs", "Nocturne For The Blues", and "I Wanna Be A Friend Of Yours". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label mono pressing with deep groove. Cover has a light stain on back.)

✨✧ Isley BrothersLive It Up (Japanese pressing) ... CD
T Neck/Columbia (Japan), 1974. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Mid 70s genius from the Isley Brothers – a record that has them firmly hitting their superstar mode with a fantastic blend of mellow soul and guitar-heavy funk! The record's got a sense of class, care, and poise that's head and shoulders above most of the group's contemporaries – an ability to rock out one minute, then slow things down for a beautiful ballad the next – all while maintaining enough credibility to still hold onto older fans, yet also reach out to a much bigger audience in the mainstream. Titles include the sublime "Ain't I Been Good To You (parts 1 & 2)", a long track with a sinister bassline and a dark groove that really makes it great, a great cover of "Hello It's Me" that's even better than the original, and the key mellow cuts "Lover's Eve" and "Brown Eyed Girl" – plus "Live It Up (parts 1 & 2)", "Need A Little Taste Of Love", and "Midnight Sky (parts 1 & 2)". CD also features a bonus track – "Live It Up", recorded live on the Dinah Shore TV show! CD
(90s Japanese pressing, includes obi.)
