Tony CrombieWhole Lotta Tony – Tony Crombie & His Friends ... CD
Ember/Fantastic Voyage (UK), 1961. New Copy ... $3.99
A record that's not just noteworthy for being a sweet early 60s date from British drummer Tony Crombie – but also for its great work on alto sax and flute from a young Harold McNair! McNair would go onto greater fame in the London scene of the late 60s – on both the jazz and rock fronts – but he already sounds wonderful here, and adds a sense of wit and whimsy to the record that Crombie's other albums don't usually have – a sly edge on both of his reed instruments that really makes the music sparkle with soul! Other great players include Tommy Whittle on tenor and bass clarinet, and Gordon Beck on both piano and harpsichord – the latter of which sounds especially great in a jazz setting. Titles include "Gut Bucket", "Round The Ouses", "Brazilia", "Flute Salad", "Journey's End", "The Gang Busters", and "Penthouse Party". CD

✨✧ VariousSoul Breakout 58 ... CD
Fantastic Voyage (UK), 1958. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Early soul tracks from the end of the 50s – material that really shows the strands of styles that helped the early evolution of the genre! The work here is a mix of R&B, vocal group sounds, and even a bit of straighter vocal work – pulled together to offer up a nice pre-soul sort of groove. Titles include "Little Boy Blue" by Bobby Blue Bland, "Nobody But You" by Dee Clark, "Talk To Me" by Little Willie John, "Been So Long" by The Pastels, "You Can Make It If You Try" by Gene Allison, "It Don't Hurt No More" by Nappy Brown, and "The Joker" by Billy Myles.

✨✧ VariousSummer Turns To Autumn – Progressive, Psychedelic & Folk Rock From The Ember Vaults ... CD
Fantastic Voyage (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Overlooked work from the UK scene at the start of the 70s – not exactly folk, not really psych, sometimes a bit pop – but usually a great blend of a few different styles at once! There's plenty of familiar echoes in the songs, but the tunes are all pretty obscure – mostly material that didn't ever get issued on this side of the Atlantic – and which most likely didn't get much play in the UK, either! The package features full notes on each track, usually with images of an original record – and titles include "September" by 9:30 Fly, "Castles In The Sky" by Blonde On Blonde, "Means & Ways" by The Dorians, "Not Even A Letter" by Knocker Jungle, "God Save The World" by Blue Beard, "Lay Me Down" by Paddy Maguire, and "Daybreak" by Back Street Band.

✨✧ Ronnie RossStompin' With The Ronnie Ross Quintet ... CD
Ember/Fantastic Voyage (UK), New Copy ... Out Of Stock
British reedman Ronnie Ross really shines brightly on this set – a well-crafted batch of tunes that takes a great lead from his strong work on baritone sax! The sound is somewhat tightly arranged – a bit in a US west coast mode from the time – but the groove's also a bit looser at points, and really has some nice edges on the solos. Ross blows baritone and a bit of alto sax, and other players include Bert Courtley on trumpet, Eddie Harvey on piano (and a bit of trombone), Pete Blannin on bass, and Andy White on drums. Titles include the Ross originals "Lucky Bean", "Blue Grass", and "Red Prune" – plus versions of Don Rendell's "Donation" and Tubby Hayes' "The Serpent". CD

✨✧ Bernard HerrmannFantasy Film World Of Bernard Herrmann ... CD
El (UK), Late 40s/1950s. New Copy ... $13.99
Most folks know Bernard Herrmann for his famous moody soundtracks for Alfred Hitchcock, or his late life genius on the Taxi Driver score – but Herrmann also had a great ear for more fantastic styles, too – and could turn his dark orchestrations into other cool spacey and watery styles too! This collection brings together the best of that music – work that had an undeniable impact on some of the Italian exotic scoring of the late 50s and early 60s, and which also has a bit more intimacy and character than the American soundtracks for bigger, more epic productions. CD features a total of 31 tracks, with a number of selections each from the films The Day The Earth Stood Still, 7th Voyage Of Sinbad, Ghost & Mrs Muir, Beneath The 12 Mile Reef, and Journey To The Center Of The Earth.
