Lee HazlewoodThese Boots Are Made For Walkin' – The Complete MGM Recordings ... CD
Ace (UK), 1960s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $13.99 19.99
Genius, pure genius! (Have we said that about Lee too many times before?) The work of Lee Hazlewood is beyond description – a bit of vocals, a bit of country, a bit of lounge, and a bit of rock – all wrapped up with a sinister edge that has you believing that this was the man who used to refer to his frequent musical partner as "Nasty" Sinatra over the headphones during recording sessions! The set features 35 tracks from Lee's obscure years at MGM records – wonderful vocal tunes that rank with some of his best ever, plus a few weird instrumentals, recorded by Lee Hazlewood's Woodchucks. Insanely wonderful stuff – records that we come back to again and again and again over the years – finally presented in their entirety, with a great set of notes on the music! Tracks include "Hands", "Mannford Oklahoma", "This Town", "Sand", "Child", "Little War", "Fort Worth", "Summer Wine", "I Move Around", "After Six", "Batman", "Summer Nights", "Suzi Jane Is Back In Town", "In Our Time", "When A Fool Loves A Fool", and "So Long Babe".

Sandy PoseySingle Girl – The Very Best Of The MGM Recordings ... CD
RPM (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $14.99
A great set of tracks by this lost 60s female singer – a lovely-voiced southern US singer who recorded mostly at Chips Moman's Memphis-based American Studios during the late 60s! Sandy works in a style that's part 60s girl pop, part country – with strong production on the vocals, and lots of nice instrumental elements like floating piano and pillowy strings, both of which make Sandy's voice sound even sweeter and sadder. Titles include "Sunglasses", "Come Softly To Me", "The Boy I Love", "Just Out Of Reach", "Born A Woman", "Single Girl", "What A Woman In Love Won't Do", and "Shattered". 23 tracks – and some great notes!

Goldmine (UK), Late 60s. Used ... $9.99
27 cuts of MGM's excellent soul sides from the late 60's – most of which were never released on LP, and nearly all of which have their excellent uptown production sound. Tracks include "I'm Gonna Change" by The Velours, "To The Ends of The Earth" by Tony Middleton, "Street Talk" by The Tymes, "Wanting You" by April Stevens, "Watch Out Girl" by The Embers, "Everything You Always Wanted To Know About Love" by Lou Roberts, "(Love) You Just Can't Walk Away" by Dean Courtney, plus lots more by The Broadways, Roy Hamilton, Spyder Turner, Kim Weston, Millie Jackson, Lou Roberts & The Marks, and The Solitaires. Rare stuff, and with a great sweet east coast sound. CD

Ginny ArnellMeet Ginny Arnell (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
MGM/Poker (UK), 1964. New Copy ... $5.99 13.99
Dreamy 60s pop from Ginny Arnell – a sweet-voiced singer working in a very echoey space! There's a nicely weepy quality to Ginny's music – not in a way that's overly emotive, but which comes from the odd mix of guitar lines, bubbling bass, and heavy echo used to record the music – all with qualities that start feeling sad long before Arnell even sings a word of the lyrics – and which is almost a female equivalent to the best blue modes of Bobby Vinton's work of the same time! Arrangements are by a variety of talents – including Bill McElhieny, Al Gorgoni, and Ray Stevens – but there's a nicely unified feel to the set, thanks to the strong production on the album from Jim Vienneau – clearly an under-acknowledged genius of 60s pop. Titles include "Dumbhead", "I Wish I Knew What Dress To Wear", "I'm So Afraid Of Loving You", "He's My Little Devil", "This Is Mine", "You Pulled A Fast One", "I Don't Want You This Way", and "This Is Mine". CD features 6 bonus tracks too – including "I'm Getting Mad", "Bill Why", "I'm Crying Too", "Trouble's Back In Town", and "Just Like A Boy". CD

One of John Barry's earliest scores for Bond – when his style was nice and raw, and when the Bond theme couldn't be heard enough throughout the course of the movie! Matt Munro sings the lyrics to the forgotten title hit – and other tracks include "James Bond Theme", "Tania Meets Klebb", "Guitar Lament", "Spectre Island", "Stalking", "Death Of Kerin", and "007 Takes The Lektor". Plus, the CD contains bonus cuts – for a total of 25 tracks in all! CD

Eric Burdon & The AnimalsEvery One Of Us ... CD
MGM/BGO (UK), 1968. New Copy ... $15.99
Another gem from The Animals' overlooked late 60s years on MGM – a time when the group were easily making some of the most inventive music on the label! The styles here are even wider than before – definitely an attempt to showcase "every one of us" that made up the group – in a blend of spacey sounds, gentle folksy moments, and some of the rougher tones of previous MGM records. Many titles were written only by Burdon – a bit of a change from before – and showcase an increased use of acoustic guitar alongside his bleak vocals. Titles include "The Immigrant Lad", "Year Of The Guru", "Serenade To A Sweet Lady", "White Houses", "New York 1963/America 1968", and "Uppers & Downers". CD

✨✧ Walt Dickerson (& Sun Ra)Impressions Of A Patch Of Blue ... CD
MGM/Verve, 1965. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Excellent album recorded by vibist Walt Dickerson during the mid 60's. Ostensibly a "soundtrack session", Dickerson freely improvises on themes from the movie A Patch Of Blue, and turns the score into a great platform for moody jazz playing on vibes and piano. Even more surprising is the fact that Sun Ra is the pianist in the quartet, making a rare non-Arkestra appearance – and on a major label, too! Titles include "Bacon & Eggs", "Alone In The Park", "Selina's Fantasy", and "Thataway". CD

✨✧ ElfTrying To Burn The Sun ... CD
MGM/Purple (UK), 1975. New Copy ... $14.99
One of the best in the early 70s run of Ronnie James Dio's pre-Rainbow rockers Elf! Trying To Burn The Sun is certainly a formative effort, not only for Dio as a roaring vocalist, but for the evolving sound of 70s hard rock in general – part of the bedrock bridging the gap from hard charging boogie rock to the heavier sounds to come – but it's a really fun rock record at face value, too. Dio is just now hitting full sail as a signature vocal stylist, belting it out in a way that's pretty close in sound and style to his metal years to come, but the music behind him has more of a southern boogie-inspired swagger, thanks in large part to Mickey Lee Soule's piano. Titles include "Black Swampy Water", "Prentice Wood", "When She Smiles", "Good Time Music", "Wonderworld", "Streetwalker" and more. CD

Connie FrancisCocktail Connie – Connie Francis Sings & Swings Lounge Classics ... CD
MGM/Jazzclub (Germany), Mid 60s. Used ... $6.99
Some of the coolest cuts you'll ever hear from Connie Francis – a host of well-picked tracks that show a very groovy side of her music! Gone are the cheesy pop modes of earlier years, and in their place are a host of jazzy, bossa, and mod-styled tunes – arranged here by Don Costa, Benny Golson, Claus Ogerman, Marty Paich, and others – all from the mid 60s – a time when Francis may not have been hitting the charts that much, but could certainly have her way with a song! If you've ever shied away from Connie before, this may well be the record that wins you over – a superb collection of overlooked 60s gems that include "Bossa Nova Hand Dance", "Walk On By", "So Nice", "It's Not Unusual", "Wives & Lovers", "The Shadow Of Your Smile", "The Second Time Around", "The Boy From Ipanema", and "I've Got A Crush On New York Town".

Bobby HatfieldMessin In Muscle Shoals ... CD
MGM/Universal (Japan), Early 70s. New Copy ... $22.99
Bobby Hatfield is doing way more than messing around – as he cut this killer session down at the legendary Fame Studios in Muscle Shoals, with a heavy soul vibe that really knocks the album out of the park! The set's one of the best in that rare early 70s blend of soul, funk, and rock – the kind of groove that few cats could handle as well as Bobby – with a vibe that maybe reminds us of Eddie Hinton at his best, but even more stripped-down and rootsy! The lineup features great work from Muscle Shoals stalwarts – like Harrison Calloway on baritone sax, Clayton Ivey on organ, and Travis Wammack on guitar – and titles include "You Left The Water Runnign", "The Promised Land", "Shuckin & Jivin", "I Saw A Lark", and "Messin In Muscle Shoals".

Lee HazlewoodLee Hazlewoodism – Its Cause & Cure (with bonus tracks) ... CD
MGM/Light In The Attic, 1966. New Copy ... $12.99 14.98
We love Lee Hazlewood – and this album is one of his best! The record's a stunning batch of Lee's original compositions – all wonderful examples of the way that Lee could take a postwar fascination with Western themes and images, and turn it on itself to reveal the anxieties and frustrations of the 60s generation – all with a smooth presentation and near-perfect backings from the legendary Billy Strange! If you ever needed proof of why Lee Hazlewood's so great, this album may well be it – a record we'd gladly trade for a dozen by other 60s singer/songwriters. Titles include "The Girls In Paris", "After Six", "In Our Time", "Jose", "The Old Man & His Guitar", "Dark In My Heart", and "The Nights". Fantastic stuff! Great reissue features three bonus tracks from Lee Hazlewood's Woodchucks – "Frenesi", "Muchacho", and "Batman". CD

Lee HazlewoodSomething Special (with bonus tracks) ... CD
MGM/Light In The Attic, Late 60s. New Copy ... $12.99 14.98
Pure genius from Lee Hazlewood – one of his gems cut for MGM in the 60s, and a session that features some great small combo backings! The feel here is almost a jazz-inflected take on the slight country tinge of Lee's other work – a style that's as sophisticated and unique as Hazlewood's well-penned lyrics and amazing vocals. Lee's completely at home here – working with the great engineer Eddie Brackett, who's sound for his vocals is just about as great as could be hoped – the matchless blend of ice and embers that perfectly defines the Hazlewood sound. All tunes are originals by Lee – and tracks include "Shades", "This Town", "Stone Cold Blues", "Child", "Little War", "Hands", "Fort Worth", "Them Girls", and "Mannford Oklahoma". Features two bonus tracks – "Moochie Ladeux" and "The Lone Ranger". CD

Lee HazlewoodVery Special World Of Lee Hazlewood (with bonus track) ... CD
MGM/Light In The Attic, Mid 60s. New Copy ... $11.99 14.98
Lee Hazlewood's world is always a very special one for us – filled with great songs, amazing production, and those icy vocals that Lee sang unlike anyone else! This album may be one of Hazlewood's greatest from the 60s – at least among his US recordings – and it's a near-perfect session with arrangements from Billy Strange, often with a slight bit of sinister guitar in the mix, but also some sublime strings too – used sparely and carefully to create a sense of deepening darkness! Lee's at his sharpest, wittiest here – singing some of his most sophisticated songs to date, but also throwing in a few nods towards his earlier pop productions. Titles include "Not The Lovin Kind", "For One Moment", "Sand", "Your Sweet Love", "My Autumn's Done Come", "I Move Around", "So Long Babe", "Bugles In The Afternoon", "My Baby Cried All Night Long", and Lee's wonderful parody remake of "These Boots Are Made For Walking". Features a bonus track sung with Suzi Jane Hokum – "Summer Wine". CD

✨✧ Mamie LeeOnce In A Lifetime (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
MGM/Poker (UK), 1966. New Copy ... $3.99 13.99
An overlooked gem from singer Mamie Lee – a vocalist who inhabits the same space between jazz and soul as Nancy Wilson! The album's got a very groovy feel overall – thanks to small combo backing from The Swingmen, a piano trio who backed up Mamie in live appearances, and who really fit in great for this studio session. Lee's got a great repoire with the group, and they work together to make the album way more than the usual vocal session from the time – a nicely swinging, hip, and lean little set that's totally great! Titles include "Charade", "Come Back To Me", "Once Upon A Time", "Poor Everybody Else", and "Try To Remember". CD also features 2 bonus tracks – "The Show Is Over" and "I Can Feel Him Slipping Away".

Mancini's fourth soundtrack for the Pink Panther series – done in the mid 70s, with a mixture of the styles he used for the older 60s films, with slight touches that resemble his groovier work on 70s cop and crime soundtracks. The main title for the film features snippets of the original theme, plus other soundtrack themes from the late 60s – and other tracks include "Come To Me", in both instrumental and vocal versions, the latter by Tom Jones – plus "Along Came Over", "Until You Love Me", "The Evil Theme", and "Exodus From The Castle". Plus, this CD version is expanded – with 6 bonus tracks and a great deluxe booklet! CD

Lalo SchifrinPiano Strings & Bossa Nova (aka Insensatez) ... CD
MGM/Verve, 1963. Used ... $5.99
A wonderful album from Lalo Schfrin! This one mixes together bossa piano and sweeping string arrangements – in a style that's incredibly dark-edged and driving, with a sound that's at once spooky and lovely – a dancing groove that makes the best tracks really sparkle! The album's light years away from other "piano with strings" albums of the time – proof that Schifrin was easily one of the most imaginative forces of his generation, and an arranger who really helped reshape music in the 60s. Titles include the incredible version of "Maria" that's played quite often by Gilles Peterson – plus loads of other nice ones, like "The Wave", "Insensatez", "You And Me", "Murmurio", "Rapaz De Bem", "Rio After Dark", and "Time For Love".

Velvet UndergroundVelvet Underground & Nico ... CD
MGM/Polydor, Late 60s. New Copy ... $4.99 9.98
Delicate dissonance, bruised beauty, and hazy noise pop – all in one of the best rock albums ever made – the amazing first album from the Velvet Underground and Nico! The album's the stuff of legend – and for good reason, too – a surprising slab of vinyl that barely set the world on its ear when first issued back in the mid 60s – yet a record that's gone onto have an influence felt for decades to come – arguably one of the most important rock records of all time. There's a really sinister edge to the record, even when things are sweet – and the range of subject matter and handling here is brilliant – from the dream pop slice of heaven "Sunday Morning", the melodic bitterness of "Femme Fatale", the massive White Light-esque freakout "European Son", and the sublime "Heroin" – quite possibly the inspiration for generations of drug use to come. The whole thing's a classic – with wonderful vocals from both Nico and Lou Reed – and titles include "Venus In Furs", "Run Run Run", "Black Angel's Death Song", "I'll Be Your Mirror", and "All Tomorrow's Parties".

Velvet UndergroundWhite Light/White Heat ... CD
MGM, 1968. New Copy ... $4.99 9.98
One of the most far-out, freaked-out albums ever from the Velvet Underground – easily the most experimental set the group ever recorded! The album's awash in really unusual sounds and styles – from the sonic blast of the title cut "White Light/White Heat", to the 17 minute garage/psych jam of "Sister Ray" to the very odd "The Gift" – which is a creepy story about cuckolding, told with voice and instrumentation split over different stereo channels! Other tunes offset the darkness with an eerie touch of sweet – and include "Here She Comes Now", "Lady Godiva's Operation", and "I Heard Her Call My Name". Arguably one of the Velvets' most influential moments – even if it's also one of their least commercially successful! CD

The second of 2 incredible albums by Bob Brown in the early 70s – both produced by Richie Havens and released on Haven's own Stormy Forest imprint at MGM – and both are among the finer folk rock records of the period, making it all the more stunning they've remained so obscure! The lightly soaring feel of his first album carries over into this one, but with just a bit fuller in the string arrangements – but it's airy and intimate all the same. Such wonderful stuff, and never to late to discover. Includes "If I'd Live Alone", "Baby Child", "Willoughby's Lament" (Parts I & II)", "Death In Dreams", "For Pamela", "Light Of Children Come" and more. CD

Ahhh . . . Great stuff! This Millie Jackson's tremendous debut album – and the work here is completely different from later records that have her more in a bitchy mode! Here, Millie's a heartbroken southern diva – right in the vein of Ann Sexton, Doris Duke, or Shirley Brown – and even though the arrangements are done north of the Mason/Dixon line (in New York by Bert DeCoteaux, and in DC by Tony Camillo), the record feels like it was lifted off the pressing plant in Muscle Shoals or Jackson! Titles include "I Ain't Giving Up", "I Miss You Baby", "Ask Me What You Want", "My Man, A Sweet Man", "I Just Can't Stand It", and "Strange Things". CD version features a whopping 11 bonus tracks – many of which were never issued before – and titles include the MGM numbers "My Heart Took A Licking" and "A Little Bit Of Something", plus "Ask Me What You Want (unedited master)", "Untrue Men", "I Don't Wanna Talk About It", "Strange Things (alt mix)", "My Man A Sweet Man (unedited master)", and "You're The Joy Of My Life (alt take)".

VariousBayou Rockabilly Cats ... CD
Ace (UK), Mid 50s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
There were plenty of things brewing down in the swampy scene in Louisiana during the 50s – where many musical crossroads met, and created some of the hottest sounds of the time! Case in point is the mighty Goldband label – located in Lake Charles, where currents from Texas, Memphis, and other point south all swirled together – to create a wonderful hybrid of hillbilly roots, bluesy inflections, and raw styles from the early years of rock and roll – presented beautifully in this overstuffed package of rare singles from the label! Production is nicely raw, but right on the money – not nearly as polished as rockers on labels like Capitol, Mercury, or MGM – and often with some touches that reflect the Louisiana roots of the artists – either a bit of cajun phrasing here, or a deep south twang there – expanded upon in the vivid stories told in the collection's detailed notes. CD features 26 titles in all – including "Twitterpated" by Buck Wheat, "No No Baby" by Al Ferrier, "The Girl In The Red Blue Jeans" by Hopeless Homer, "Plant You Now Dig You Later" by Bee Arnold, "I Love That Woman" by Red Le Blance & His Crescent Boys, "Wanna Go Steady" by Bill Hutto & His Playboys, "Mabel's Done Gone" by Jerry Noble, and "Honest To Goodness Baby" by Bill& Carroll with the Neches Valley Boys.

Grapefruit (UK), 1967. New Copy 3CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A stunner of a set – one that goes way way past familiar psych classics of the late 60s – and explosively shows the huge wave of new sounds and ideas that were going down on the UK scene in 1967! The package brings together 80 tracks from a huge number of labels – Pye, Polydor, MGM, Regal Zonophone, Track, CBS, and so many others – plus material licensed from the artists themselves – all in a mindblowing array of rare singles that capture that perfect moment when things started to get tripped-out, but never too self-indulgent – when artists were able to pack a universe of freak and fuzz into the space of a three minute single! Think of key early 45s by Pink Floyd or The Move, and you'll get the vibe here – on titles that include "Busker Bill" by The Truth, "Cept Me" by Focal Point, "Toyland" by Alan Bown, "Subway" by The Tickle, "Time To Start Loving You" by The Mickey Finn, "The Squire Blew His Horn" by The Uglys, "Your Servant Stephen" by The Peep Show, "Toy Soldier" by The Riot Squad with David Bowie, "Eiderdown Clown" by The Scots Of St James, "Cos It's Over" by The Summer Set, "Evil Woman" by Guy Darnell, "Look At The Sun" by Louise, "Flames" by Elmer Gantry's Velvet Opera, "Smokeytime Springtime" by The Doves, "Keep It Out Of Sight" by Paul & Barry Ryan, "Listen To The Sky" by The Sands, "Laughing Man" by The Marmalade, "Ginger" by TJ Assembly, and "Pink Purple Yellow & Red" by The Sorrows.

✨✧ Barbara & The BrownsCan't Find Happiness – The Sounds Of Memphis Recordings ... CD
Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The first-ever full length collection of work by Memphis singer Barbara Brown – a vocalist who appeared both as a solo act, and with her sisters – on a variety of singles for labels like Cadet, Atlantic, Tower, and MGM in the late 60s and early 70s! Barbara's got a deep, rich voice that's clearly schooled in gospel, but pointed towards more secular ends – an approach that's very much in keeping with the best late 60s wave of soul from Atlantic Records, and which is carried off here with a sharpness and precision that's simply mindblowing! Why Brown never scored bigger is a real mystery to us, because these tunes come off like the cream of the crop of southern soul at the end of the 60s – not just obscurities for obscurity sake, but some of the highest level of soul a female soul singer could hope for at the time! The 20 track package features great notes on Brown's career, and on the tunes – a decent portion of which are previously unissued, too. Titles include "Man Around The House", "Can't Find No Happiness", "Pity A Fool", "Big Party", "Watch Dog", "You Don't Love Me", "Plenty Of Room", "I'm Gonna Start A War", "Things Have Gone To Pieces", "Great Big Thing", "Play Thing", and "If I Can't Run To You I'll Crawl".

Some tracks are from albums under Lalo's own name as a leader, and other are from albums by Dizzy Gillespie, Cal Tjader, and Bob Brookmeyer. Whatever the source, though, the music's all pretty darn groovy – and the CD's a swirling mass of bossa, Latin, and jazzy jazz grooves! Titles include "Chorale", "The Wave", "Old Laces", "Samba Para Dos", "En Salon Mexico", and "The Chains". CD

Pepper Adams & Jimmy KnepperPepper-Knepper Quintet ... CD
Metrojazz/Fresh Sound (Spain), 1958. Used ... $12.99
A gem of a session from both players – and one of the long-lost sides on the short-lived Metrojazz label from MGM! Adams and Knepper head up a soulful group that features Wynton Kelly on piano (and a bit of organ!), Doug Watkins on bass, and Elvin Jones on drums. The real charm, though, is from Adams' solos, which are in that perfect gutbuckety mode that he could hit when he wanted to – a deep, dark drink the best tone the bari could offer, never getting clumsy at all, thanks to some lively rhythm playing. It's another one of those amazing sets recorded on a single date in NYC! Titles include "Minor Catastrophe", "Riverside Drive", All Too Soon", "Beaubien, "Primrose Path", and "Adams In The Apple".
