Galt MacDermot & OthersHighway Life – Songs From Dude ... LP
Kilmarnock, 1973. Very Good ... $4.99
A mixed batch of vocal and instrumental tracks from the Galt MacDermot musical Dude – a lesser-known follow-up to Hair, also written with Jerome Ragni! Dude wasn't as funky as Hair, but there's some very nice moments, and some good soulful tracks that make the album well worth having. Salome Bey sings on some tracks (and these are different from her recordings on her own Dude LP), as does Nell Carter, Nat Morris, and Jim Farrell – all in a gently soulful mode that has some nice folksy touches. Instrumentation is by a group that includes Galt on piano – plus Bernard Purdie on drums, Seldon Powell on saxes, Ernie Hayes on organ, and Wilbur Bascomb on bass. There's a few nice sample-type introductions to a few of the tracks, and a few that are instrumental all the way through. Titles include "Suzie Moon", "Humdrum Life", "Days Of This Life", "Un Do", "Dude All Dude", "Wa Wa Wa", and "The Highway Life". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ 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".
