✨✧ Dexter GordonComplete Columbia Albums Collection (Homecoming/Sophisticated Giant/Manhattan Symphonie/Gotham City/Live At Carnegie/bonus) (7CD set) ... CD
Columbia/Sony, Late 70s/Early 80s. Used 7 CDs ... Out Of Stock
A massive amount of music – and a hell of a tribute to the tenor sax genius of Dexter Gordon! The pairing of Dex and Columbia Records is a really special one – because it not only represents a great musical growth in Gordon's later years, but also a place that was wonderfully sympathetic to his musical ideas – and which let him take off, and perform in settings he might not have ever reached on other labels! Most of Gordon's music from later years is in a very standard format – long-blown tracks with a rhythm section – usually recorded live, in familiar formats that still sound great, but never show off the full range of Dexter's talents. Yet here, Gordon gets to work in a focused studio setting – often with some of the best peers of his generation – and is also represented on a well-recorded live date back in the US as well. The scope of the music is tremendous – and bringing it together in this one package is especially great, given that there's a lot of bonus material too! Albums include Homecoming, Sophisticated Giant, Manhattan Symphonie, Gotham City, Live At Carnegie Hall, and a disc of Bonus Tracks too! CD

✨✧ Erroll GarnerDreamstreet/One World Concert ... CD
Octave/Telarc, 1961. Used ... $4.99
A great Erroll Garner double-header – two 60s albums back to back on a single CD! First up is Dreamstreet – a record in which Garner grooves nicely, finding an almost renewed energy for the 60s, but still hitting all those highly-rhythmic modes we love so much in his early work! The recording quality is great – lots of bold echo from the piano, and even a bit of Erroll's grunting vocalizations somewhere in the mix – kind of an extra added emphasis that sounds great next to the bass of Eddie Calhoun and drums of Kelly Martin. Titles include "Just One Of Those Things", "Blue Lou", "The Lady Is A Tramp", "Dreamstreet", and the groovy "Mambo Gotham" – an especially jaunty little number! One World Concert is a set with an ambitious title, but a nicely earthy feel – a live recording that features Erroll Garner's trio with Eddie Calhoun on bass and Kelly Martin on drums – stretching out strongly in front of a live audience. Titles include "Mack The Knife", "Misty", "Dancing Tambourine", "Happiness Is A Thing Called Joe", and "Sweet & Lovely". CD

✨✧ Nelson Riddle/Adam West & Burt WardBatman – Original Television Soundtrack ... LP
20th Century/Universal, 1966. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Holy Soundtracks! Of all the knock-off Batman albums from the 60s, this one's the only legit soundtrack to the Batman TV show – and it's way way better than any other piece of vinyl with the Batman logo at the time! The album is every bit as great as you might think – as it's got the full flavor of the campy television classic – with loads of the original music from the show – the themes you remember, as you heard them, and not a bunch of watered-down tracks inspired by the show – plus (and this is the best part!), the record has loads of dialogue from the TV show in between the tracks – cool exclamations from Adam West, Burt Ward, and others – which makes listening to the record as fun as watching the show! Titles include "Batman Pows The Penguin", "Batman Riddles The Riddler", "Gotham City", "Batman Thaws Mr Freeze", and "To The Batmobile!" LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Roy ThomasBatman – The War Years 1939 to 1945 (hardcover) ... Book
Chartwell Books, 2015. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A wealth of classic Batman comics from World War II – all brought together by comic historian Roy Thomas, who also provides a nice framework for the project! The Dark Knight is usually associated with action on the streets of Gotham City, but as with most comic book heros during WWII, he turned his talents towards stopping he Axis – both in direct confrontation, and working against spies and saboteurs – in stories served up from the early years of Batman, Detective, and Worlds Finest comics – reprinted here in vivid color and oversized pages too! The book is nice and heavy – almost 300 pages – and even if you're not drawn to the wartime stories, the whole thing's a great presentation of Golden Age tales, with classic art and stories. 298 pages, hardcover, in full color.
