Galt MacDermot with Salome BeySalome Bey Sings Songs From Dude ... LP
Kilmarnock, 1973. New Copy ... $13.99
A set of tracks from Galt MacDermot's musical Dude – co-written with Hair lyricist Jerome Ragni, and featuring vocals by Salome Bey (of Andy & The Bey Sisters fame!) Galt did the music, and the group includes him, Bernard Purdie, Cornell Dupree, and has backup vocals by Cissy Houston and Joshie Armstead – all working nicely together in a style that's got some righteous touches that give the album a nice sort of Atlantic 70s soul sound. Salome sings deep and soulfully – in a mode that recalls her work with the Bey Sisters group, but in a mode that's more soul-based – and tracks include "Boo Boo", "Happy Song", "Jazz Bridge", "At Home", "No One", and "A Garden For Two".

✨✧ Nell Carter with Galt MacDermotNell Carter Sings The Gospel – Take This Bread – A Mass In Our Time ... CD
Kilmarnock, 1973. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A wonderful little record that's way way more than you'd even expect from the title – an early 70s collaboration between arranger Galt MacDermot and singer Nell Carter on a project of all original material with a very soulful vibe! The set isn't gospel tunes sung by a soul artist – and instead features these cool, complicated grooves that have all the best MacDermot touches that we love in his best soundtracks – played by Galt on piano with Bernard Purdie on drums, Seldon Powell on tenor, and Bad Bascomb on bass – a mighty tight combo who make the whole thing groove a lot more than you'd expect! And Nell Carter isn't the only singer, either – as the record also features a lot of work by Salome Bey, of Andy & The Bey Sisters fame – as well as the Howard Roberts Chorale, who were really getting righteous at this time. Many titles are short, and the whole thing works together beautifully as kind of a single piece – with titles that include "Cleaning Me With Fire", "May God Care", "Strange Gods", "Self From Self", "Up To The Altar", "In The Name Of The Father", "Sanctus", and "Out Of The Depths".
