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 ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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!

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 18 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

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

✨✧ Dick HymanMoon Gas/Moog The Electric Eclectics (with bonus tracks) ... CD
MGM/Omni (Australia), 1963/1969. New Copy ... $16.99 19.99
Incredible work from the great Dick Hyman – two of his hippest electric albums back to back on a single CD, with great bonus cuts too! First up is Moon Gas – one of the greatest albums that Dick Hyman ever recorded – a mad mix of keyboards that more than lives up to its name and its wonderful cover! The album has Dick playing instruments that include electronic organs, keyboards, and ondioline – working in a "moon" oriented style that has lots of bloops and bleeps tripping over very groovy tunes, all augmented by wild wordless vocals by Mary Mayo. The whole thing's kind of like a funky Yma Sumac album, recorded on Saturn – and the whole thing's sublime, from conception, to production, to execution, and even the cover! Titles include "Moon Gas", "Space Reflex", "Maid Of the Moon", and "Desafinado". Moog is one of the coolest, grooviest moog albums you'll ever hope to buy – a wonderful foray into the new world of synthetic sounds, done by pianist Dick Hyman – who was working in a straight jazz format just a decade before! Dick turns out to be a wonderful talent on the moog – very well-suited to the record, with just the right sort of quirky, playful approach to bring the best out of the instrument – at a level that's right up there with the best by Perrey & Kingsley, and maybe even cooler – given that Dick doesn't rely nearly as much on studio tricks! All tunes are pretty bouncy, groovy, and filled with sweet moogy touches – and titles include "The Minotaur", "The Legend Of Johnny Pot", "Improvisation In Fourths", "Topless Dancers Of Corfu", and "The Moog & Me". CD features two great bonus tracks – the very funky "Give It Up Or Turn It Loose" and "Kolumbo". 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".

Velvet UndergroundVelvet Underground & Nico ... CD
MGM/Polydor, Late 60s. Used ... $2.99
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".

✨✧ Richard Rodney Bennett/Roy BuddBillion Dollar Brain/Final Option ... CD
MGM/Kritzerland, 1967/1982. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Two lost scores – packaged together on a single CD! First up is Billion Dollar Brain, composed by Richard Rodney Bennett – done for an obscure late 60s spy thriller starring Michael Caine, and a really dark soundtrack! Bennett did a fair bit of jazz arranging in his time – and the score to this one mixes some dark dramatic bits with some lighter motifs that feature good work on woodwinds and percussion. The main theme has some nice floating piano over the top, and a few other tracks have a cool whistling suspense theme – but things also really change up a lot nicely, and the whole thing almost has an audio collage feel at times, with its sense of variety. Titles include "Love Scene", "Hoe Down", "Anya", "The Church", "Skidoo", "Ambush", "Car Chase", and "Billion Dollar Brain". Roy Budd handles the score for Final Option – an early 80s spy thriller, but one that gets some beautiful Budd treatment that's right up there with Roy's famous soundtracks of the 70s! The instrumentation often has an airy, eerie feel – slowly cascading keyboards, with almost a hint of Italian space between – used with a lot less schlock than some of the tinnier, cheesier action scores that were more of the mainstream at the time. A few tunes were composed and conducted by Jerry & Marc Donahue – and titles include "Who Dares Wins", "Straight Ahead Blues", "Nature Of The Beast", "Reds Under The Beds", "Hi Jack (part 1)", "American Medley", and "SAS Or Nothing".

✨✧ CowsillsPainting The Day – The Angelic Psychedelia Of The Cowsills ... CD
MGM/El (UK), Late 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A groovy bunch of kids from the late 60s – but don't hold their young age against them, because The Cowsills made some of the best psychedelic pop of the time! This fab little compilation of the group's work starts with a few big early singles, rolls through later album tracks, and then goes onto include the entirety of their lost masterpiece II x II – a record that really shows the young group growing up, and hitting some beautifully hip and flowery styles! The general Cowsills groove is sort of a post-folk sunshine style of pop – heavy on the harmonies, but also produced with some really creative arrangements and studio touches that keep things interesting throughout. Titles include the group's excellent theme to the TV show "Love American Style" – plus 22 other tracks that include "Father", "Silver Threads & Golden Needles", "Night Shift", "Signs", "Hair", "II x II", "Beautiful Beige", "We Can Fly", "Mr Flynn", "The Rain The Park & Other Things", "Start To Love", and "Goodtime Charlie".

✨✧ Roy HamiltonWarm Soul (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
MGM/Poker (UK), 1963/1964. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A key 60s classic from the great Roy Hamilton – an album done nearly a decade after his initial rise to fame, but with a really great sound overall! Roy's vocals are wonderfully full and feeling here – a bit in the mode of Brook Benton, with some mellower country influences at the bottom of the mix – but also somewhat mature and sophisticated, too – that rising respectability of the male soul singer of the 60s, finally given the space of expression that would match older jazz vocals. Arrangements on the album are by Marty Manning, with a feel that's full, but never overwhelming – and Roy's vocals are wonderfully upfront in the mix throughout. Titles include "Guess Who", "The Same One", "Looking Back", "Baby, Don't You Cry", "It's Too Soon To Know", and "For Your Precious Love". Plus, the album's augmented by 15 more bonus tracks too – singles for MGM with arrangements by Garry Sherman, Teacho Wiltshire, Ray Ellis, Dick Hyman, Bert Keyes, and others – on titles that include "The Sinner", "Let Go", "Midnight Town Daybreak City", "You Still Love Him", "She Make Me Wanna Dance", "The Panic Is On", "You Can Count On Me", and "A Thousand Tears Ago".

✨✧ Joey HeathertonJoey Heatherton Album (limited edition with bonus tracks) ... CD
MGM/Hip-O Select, 1965/1972. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Was there a sexier 70s celebrity than Joey Heatherton? It's hard to think so – and the cover of this one is more than enough proof that she was America's greatest answer to Brigitte Bardot! And while we certainly remember her from countless variety show appearances at the time, it's actually a bit hard to remember her as a singer (something that's due, no doubt, to the fact that we were so busy looking – not listening!) This great Hip-O set nicely corrects that fact – by bringing together Joey's full 10 track MGM album from 1972, plus some even more obscure singles recorded for Coral and Decca in the mid 60s! The Joey Heatherton Album was done in a sexy sort of 70s pop mode – slight country touches on a few tunes, but mostly glistening adult-styled backings from the team of Tony Scotti and Tommy Oliver. Tunes on that one include "God Only Knows", "It's Not Easy", "Right Or Wrong", "I'm Sorry", "Gone", "Say Hello", and "Someone To Watch Over Me". But almost even better are the rare early singles – 11 more numbers recorded in the mid 60s, and done in a trumpeting girl pop style that actually has plenty of traces of the Brit female sound of the time. Joey's really really great on these numbers – perky, poppy, and still ultra-sexy! Titles include "That's How It Goes", "Live & Learn", "Tomorrow Is Another Day", "My Blood Runs Cold", "Growing Up Is Learning To Say Goodbye", and "But He's Not Mine". CD

Barbara & The BrownsCan't Find Happiness – The Sounds Of Memphis Recordings ... CD
Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
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".

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)".

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

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.

Lonehill (Spain), 1958/1959/1964. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Pure and simple genius from trumpeter Charlie Shavers – a player with a sweet tone and a fluid groove – stepping out here with great accompaniment from pianist Ray Bryant! The CD brings together work from the albums Charlie Digs Paree and Charlie Digs Dixie – both originally recorded for MGM Records in the late 50s, and done in a clean, uncluttered style that really brought a strong focus to Shaver's solos, but also gave some excellent rhythmic support from Bryant – working here at the height of his early powers, in a mode that's clearly relaxed enough to get with the spirit of each different session. Shavers plays in a mostly-muted style on the first set, and with a more open horn on the second – and titles include "Domino", "Petite Fleur", "The Last Time I Saw Paris", "Pigalle", "Jazz Me Blues", "Comme Ci Comme Ca", "Muskrat Rumble", "Daddy's Got The Gleeks", and "At The Jazz Band Ball". Added to the CD are 4 tracks from the Le Crazy Horse album – featuring Shavers on trumpet and vocal with an unknown French group – on titles that include "Man With A Horn", "One O'Clock Jump", and "Back Home Again In Indiana".

✨✧ Paris SistersAlways Heavenly – The Paris Sisters Anthology ... CD
Ace (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Beautiful work from The Paris Sisters – one of the coolest, grooviest girl groups of the 60s – and one who've got a sound that's really a cut above most of their contemporaries! There's something strangely sinister about this trio – not just the sweet sounds you might expect, but also this undercurrent of darkness that often seems emphasized in the hip production they receive – work on these cuts by 60s studio giants like Phil Spector, Jack Nitzsche, Nik Venet, and Terry Melcher – who move these gals past simple Brill Building pop, into territory that's often a lot spookier. The package is the first to really offer up the full spectrum of the trio's genius – and features five never-issued tracks, plus work the girls did for Reprise, MGM, Columbia, Mercury, and Capitol Records – all with the usual top-shelf Ace Records presentation and notes.
