TTF (Today, Tomorrow, Forever)Surprise! Surprise! ... LP
Gold Coast, 1981. Very Good+ ... $18.99
A lost bit of boogie from the late Curtom years – a set that has TTF working with the hard-grooving team of Jimmy Levine and Jesse Boyce! The album's got a sparkling sort of polish that's really great, yet far from commercial sound of the time – way better than most indie sets of this nature, especially in the way it manages to shift around between groovers and ballads, and give space to some of the different vocalists in the process. Instrumentation's nice and warm – that rich modern soul sound that Curtom was showing in its final years – and titles include "Mighty Fine", "If The World Could Love", "Let Yourself Go", "Love Is Just What You Make It", and "Got To Keep Movin On". LP, Vinyl record album

Mel TormeCalifornia Suite ... LP
Bethlehem, 1957. Very Good ... $19.99
An insane record – simply insane! Mel Torme wrote the California Suite as a tribute to his home state during the glorious postwar years of growth and boom – and it contains some of the weirdest songs he ever sung! At the base, the work is driven by the same west coast jazz arrangements by Marty Paich that you'll find on some of Mel's other Bethlehem albums – but the songs can be incredibly goofy, rhyming towns in CA with catchy words and phrases, pairing Marines in San Diego with wealthy old widows, and leveling San Francisco with one of the worst puns on "Golden Gate" that we've ever heard! Still, the album's an essential one if you're a fan of Mel Torme – not only because it's got some wonderful vocals in the best parts, but also because it's a true reflection of his deep commitment to pushing the boundaries of jazz music. Tracks include "West Coast Is The Best Coast", "They Go To San Diego", "LA", and "Poor Little Extra Girl". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original red label pressing with deep groove. Cover has some wear.)

✨✧ Modern LoversRock & Roll With The Modern Lovers ... LP
Beserkley, 1977. Used ... Out Of Stock
Raw, sweet, deadpan pop songs about summer mornings, the ice cream man, rollercoasters, and cars from the strangely whimsical Jonathan Richman! This is Jonathan's third album for Beserkely (and the second to come out in early '77) – and the true beginning of the second phase of his career, which cast him as an oddball manchild who rattled out weird, three chord tunes about whatever seemed to be going through his development-arrested mind at the time. It's all still very sweet, very catchy, and all about acoustic stream of consciousness cuteness. This was all still very amazing in the mid 70s – well before tongue-in-cheek hipsters like the Violent Femmes used Richmond-esque quirkiness as pure gimmickery. It may a notch below his previous couple of classic albums – but Rock And Roll is still a gem! "The Sweeping Wind", "Ice Cream Man", "Summer Morning", "Fly Into Mystery", "Roller Coaster By The Sea", "Coomyah", "Egyptian Reggae", "The Wheels On The Bus" and more. LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing! Cover has some light wear and a gold promo stamp on the back.)
