Linda RonstadtSilk Purse (2015 Black Friday Release) ... LP
Capitol, 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
Even better than some of Linda Ronstadt's earlier records – thanks to a tighter feel, better songs, and more confidence from Linda, especially on her sassy take on Hank Williams' "Lovesick Blues", and other gems. Titles include "Are My Thoughts With You", "Will You Love Me Tomorrow", "Louise", "Menter Revenge", "Life Is Like A Mountain Railway" and more! LP, Vinyl record album

Roger Nichols & The Small Circle Of FriendsFull Circle (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Now Sounds (UK), 2007. New Copy ... $8.99
A wonderful return to form for Roger Nichols & The Small Circle Of Friends – working here in the same sublime space they hit on their one and only album for A&M Records in the 60s! The style here is somewhat more modern – but still mostly 70s-styled, as opposed to contemporary – and in a way, Nichols and the group hit some of the warmer modes that groups like Free Design or Singers Unlimited were using at the start of the 70s. All tunes are originals by Roger, most penned with his early songwriting partner Paul Williams – and the vocals by Nichols, Murray MacLeod, and Melinda MacLeod are presented with some great light instrumentation – mostly keyboards, guitar, and bass from Roger himself. We're surprised at how much we like this one – and instead of thinking of it as an album recorded 40 years after the group's debut, we'd rather like to think of it as a "lost" session from the early 70s – because that's the way it sounds overall! Titles include "The Winner's Theme", "I Kept On Loving You", "Let Me Be The One", "Out In The Country", "You're Foolin Nobody", "Always You", "I'm Comin To The Best Part Of My Life", "Look Around", "I'm Gonna Find Her", "Talk It Over In The Morning", and "Watching You". CD also fetaures 5 bonus tracks too – unreleased demo versions of tracks on the album! CD

✨✧ Frank RosolinoFrank Rosolino – Kenton Presents ... LP
Capitol, 1954. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of the first albums ever cut as a leader by trombonist Frank Rosolino – a hip set issued under the Stan Kenton Presents banner for Capitol in the mid 50s – but done in a smaller combo mode than you'd hear with Stan! The setting provides a great showcase for the emerging solo talents of Rosolino on trombone – a player with a soulful swing that get way past his goofy image on the cover – and which is set up here in the company of some great collaborators who include Charlie Mariano on alto sax – playing so strongly, the album might well include him as a co-leader – plus piano from either Claud Williamson or Pete Jolly, trumpet from Sam Noto, bass from Max Bennett or Curtis Counce, and drums from Mel Lewis or Stan Levey. There's not only a lot of Kenton influence in the players, but a lot of Bethlehem Records styles as well – a reference that definitely shapes the sound of this set, and makes it a strong one for any fan of 50s work on that label – or Mode Records as well. Titles are a mix of standards and originals – and include "Ragamuffin", "Linda", "Carioca", "Besame Mucho", "Yo Yo", and "Freckles". LP, Vinyl record album
(Great Japanese pressing – with insert!)
