Joanie SommersPositively The Most ... LP
Warner, 1959. Very Good- ... $6.99
A great little record that's way more jazz than some of Joanie Sommers' other albums – thanks to arrangements from Marty Paich and Tommy Oliver – both of whom help things stay lively, even when sweet – and almost give the album a similar feel to some of the best Bethlehem or Mode label jazz vocal sides of the 50s! Joanie's got none of her pop trappings here – and her vocals are nicely deep and mature – really feeling out the songs with a deeply personal vibe, and way more grown-up than we might have expected. The album's a real standout from Sommers' too-short career – and titles include "What's New", "My Heart Belongs To Daddy", "Something I Dreamed Last Night", "Oh But I Do", "That Old Devil Moon", and "So In Love". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original grey label deep groove pressing.)

Joanie SommersSommers' Seasons ... LP
Warner, 1963. Near Mint- ... $11.99
Joanie Sommers takes on the seasons of the years – in a sweet little concept album that's almost her equivalent of Julie London's famous Calendar Girl record! Stan Applebaum's on hand to help with arrangements, and his styles here are a mix of jazzy backgrounds and some fuller, lusher styles that still have plenty of space for Joanie's vocals – and Sommers definitely shows a strong move away from pop, into some more mature modes that really fit the right mood for each season-themed track on the set. Titles include "Summertime", "Autumn Serenade", "Early Autumn", "June Comes Around Every Year", and "Autumn In Rome". LP, Vinyl record album
(Mono pressing. Cover has light wear and some staple holes in one corner.)

✨✧ Joanie SommersCome Alive ... LP
Columbia, 1966. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
Really groovy work from singer Joanie Sommers – an overlooked gem recorded after her initial albums for Warner Brothers, and put together with some mighty cool arrangements from the great Mort Garson! Joanie's lost all her little girl pop modes here – and instead really comes across with the adult charm of a jazz singer – reaching out with some surprisingly deep tones on the mellower cuts, and showing a great sense of swing on the groovers – all at a mode that really takes her past the style of the early years! Mort's backings are great – as rich in jazzy tones as someone like Marty Paich, but also touched with some of the unusual inflections that always make Garson's music so great. Tracks include "I'm All Smiles", "Girl Talk", "You'd Better Love Me", "You Take What Comes Along", "Watch What Happens", "Too Late Now", and "Sunday In New York". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original 360 sound stereo pressing! Cover has light wear, and back has some light staining near the top.)

Burt Bacharach/Peter MatzOn The Flip Side ... LP
Decca, 1967. Very Good+ ... $6.99
An obscure and wonderful chapter in the career of Burt Bacharach – material penned for a 1967 TV musical starring Rick Nelson and Joanie Sommers – all of it perfect 60s Bacharach pop all the way through! The plot of the musical is a bit silly, but the performance isn't – tightly-crafted vocal numbers that often mix Burt's older Brill Building style with a bit more of a Sunshine Pop kind of approach. Although penned by Bacharach, the music is actually conducted by Peter Matz – who does a great job of retaining the maestro's sense of space and timing, but also unlocks some bolder flourishes in the tunes, and manages to get some really amazing vocal performances out of both Sommers and Nelson! There's a sophistication here that goes beyond the roots of both singers – and the record's filld with lesser-known tracks that still sparkle with plenty of Bacharach brilliance – including "It Doesn't Matter Anymore", "They're Gonna Love It", "Juanita's Place Montage", "Try To See It My Way", "They Don't Give Medals", "Fender Mender", and "Juanita's Place". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some aging on the back.)

✨✧ Bernadette CarrollLaughing On The Outside/Heavenly ... 7-inch
Numero, Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Sweet girl pop from Bernadette Carroll! "Laughing On The Outside" is the kind of weepy gem that might have been recorded by Joanie Sommers – but handled here with a nicely indie vibe that has spare strings moving nicely next to Bernadette's blue-tinged vocals, and a nice spoken bit in the middle! "Heavenly" picks up the pace a bit more – percussion and strings leaping along with some handclaps – all to create a proudly-strutting groove that has Carroll singing in a completely different mood! 7-inch, Vinyl record
