Lee HazlewoodThese Boots Are Made For Walkin' – The Complete MGM Recordings ... CD
Ace (UK), 1960s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $12.99 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 ... 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!

Richard Rodney Bennett/Roy BuddBillion Dollar Brain/Final Option ... CD
MGM/Kritzerland, 1967/1982. Used ... $29.99
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".

Sallie BlairHello Tiger! (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
MGM/Universal (Japan), 1959. Used ... $24.99
Sultry vocals from Sallie Blair – one of the hipper singers of her generation, and an artist with a sound that's unlike anyone else we can think of! Blair's a bit bluesy, a bit soulful, but ultimately a jazz singer at heart – and her already-cool style gets some sweet extra help on this session from Neal Hefti, who brings a great sense of punch to his arrangements – almost a Basie bounce at points, but with some Henry Mancini touches too – especially in the album's great use of electric guitar and Latin percussion. Most numbers have a slinky, sexy sort of groove – and titles include "That Old Black Magic", "Witchcraft", "Whatever Lola Wants", "Doncha Go Way Mad", "Everything I Have Is Yours", "Early Winter", and "I'm Through With Love".

Allen GinsbergSongs Of Innocence & Experience (2CD edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
MGM/Omnivore, 1969/1971. New Copy 2CD ... $20.99 22.98
Ever wonder what happens when beatniks turn into hippies? They make albums like this one – a real treasure from the late 60s underground – and a set that showed the complete transformation of Allen Ginsberg at the time! The set's a real oddity – recorded after Ginsburg had hit new fame for his appearance at the Chicago 7 trial – but with a meditative quality that's very different than his more public presence as a yippie. The record features Ginsburg reading the works of William Blake and playing harmonium – while he receives instrumental backing by the likes of Don Cherry on trumpet, Bob Dorough on piano, and Elvin Jones on drums – usually in ways that are light, but still meaningful – and which really highlight Ginsburg's commitment to the project. Peter Orlovsky chimes in on a few tracks – and titles include "The Shepherd", "Little Black Boy", "London", "Ah Sun Flower", and "Laughing Song". CD features bonus tracks – "The Grey Monk (alt take)" and "Brothels Of Paris" – plus CD2 features more blake songs, most unissued – with titles that include "Holy Thursday", "A Nurses Song", "The Fly", "Spring", "The Divine Image", and "Infant Joy". Also includes three mantras done with backing by Arthur Russell on cello – "Padmasambhava Mantra", "Roghupati Raghava", and "Om Namah Shivaye". CD

Lee HazlewoodVery Special World Of Lee Hazlewood ... CD
MGM/Water, Mid 60s. Used ... $6.99
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".

Michel LegrandCops & Robbers ... CD
MGM/Kritzerland, 1973. Used ... $14.99
Wonderful lost work from Michel Legrand – a fantastic, and fantastically overlooked, 70s soundtrack – completely essential to have in a CD version like this, since most of the music hardly appeared in the film at all! The score takes off nicely from some of Legrand's more famous work of the 60s and early 70s – with a mixture of warm themes, jazzy elements, and some of the funkier touches you'd expect from a cop/crime film – all at a level that's a bit less sentimental than some of his French film work, with just the right qualities to fit the offbeat story of the movie. There's a real Dave Grusin sort of approach going on at times – although with a bit more acoustic piano than electric keyboards – but Legrand also throws in a few softer bits to round things out nicely, and create a lot more depth in the music than you might expect for a low-budget film. Really great stuff overall – the kind of soundtrack that should have gotten proper release at the time, as it easily matches any of Legrand's bigger LP hits – and presented with great notes on both the film and music. Titles include "Papa Joe The Padrone", "Downtown", "Wall Street", "The Chase", "The Sleep Song", "The Sellers", and "Uptown". CD

Lalo SchifrinWrath Of God ... CD
MGM/Film Score Monthly, 1972. Used ... $19.99
Robert Mitchum as a cigar-smoking priest who totes a machine gun – the cover here is almost enough to make us buy the album, but the music is even better! The soundtrack is a later MGM score by Lalo Schifrin – penned for a slightly comedic action film set in Central America, and done with a fair bit of Latin touches in the instrumentation. Elements of a variety of different Latin modes trickle through more standard soundtrack work from Lalo – jazzy at times, more serious at others – but almost always served up with groovy touches that make this one especially appealing to our ears. There's some nice snakey flutes that slide through some of the bigger backings – and sparer tracks are often heavy on percussion – making for a nice blend of moods that serves up a freshly sounding track with nearly every entry on the album! CD features 23 tracks in all – including 2 bonus tracks – and titles include "Chela/Tacho", "Wrath Of God", "Mascaras", "Plegaria", "Jurado", "Nacho", "Musicos", "Emmet", "La Iglesia", "Campanas", and "La Confesion".

Milt Jackson & Ray BrownThat's The Way It Is ... CD
Impulse/Universal (Japan), 1969. Used ... $14.99
At the end of the 60s, Milt Jackson and Ray Brown cut some very groovy records together – teamed up in a great pairing of styles that pushed both of them way past the more standard sounds of earlier years! This album's one of the best of the bunch – as it features pianist Monty Alexander joining the pair, bringing in some warmly soulful elements on piano – in ways that are a great bridge between his work for MGM and MPS! The set also features great tenor from Teddy Edwards – blowing with a deep tone and a sharp edge – and in addition to vibes by Jackson and bass by Brown, the group also features Dick Berk on drums. The set was recorded live at Shelly's Manne-Hole – and titles include Alexander's "That's The Way It Is", plus "Blues In The Basement", "Wheelin & Dealin", and "Tenderly". CD

Louvin BrothersFirst Steps – The Early Recordings ... CD
Rural Routes, Early 50s. New Copy ... $11.99 15.98
Sublime sounds from the legendary Louvin Brothers – heard here on a collection of tracks recorded before their more famous years at Capitol Records – for labels that include Decca, Apollo, and MGM! Yet even at this early point, the brothers are fantastic – graced with a harmony sound that was both rooted in the hills, and which would become a huge influence on rock and folk generations to come – often just backed by simple guitar and mandolin backings, which usually don't offer the pyrotechnics of contemporaries like Bill Monroe – lest they get in the way of the vocals – yet still have a way of ringing out with a fantastic sort of depth. Titles include "Weapon Of Prayer", "Alabama", "Seven Year Blues", "The Get Acquainted Waltz", "You'll Be Rewarded Over There", "Robe Of White", "The Sons & Daughters Of God", "Childish Love", and "The Great Atomic Power".

Piero PiccioniKenner/More Than A Miracle (3CD set) ... CD
Film Score Monthly, 1967/1969. Used 3CD ... $33.99
A double-header of material from Italian maestro Piero Piccioni – presented in a wonderfully rich, heavily-detailed style – the first time we've ever seen his music handled in the lavish Film Score Monthly manner! First up is the obscure soundtrack to Kenner – a late 60s Jim Brown film, done by Piero with a wonderfully sensitive soundtrack – really lovely woodwind interplay, with an undercurrent of jazz – almost a Johnny Mandel sort of mode, but with some of the occasional mod touches you'd expect from Piccioni on some of his better-known scores. There's some cuts that have a nicely pronounced soul jazz vibe – while others move between some lyrical sounds that are mighty sweet – and there's some bits that feature organ played with the raspy edges that always make Piero's handling of the instrument so different from others'. CD 1 features 32 tracks from Kenner – including some rare bonus material too – all conducted by Bruno Nicolai! CDs 2 and 3 feature More Than A Miracle, a dreamy little soundtrack by Piero Piccioni – not as mad as some of his more famous Italian work, but with plenty of nice touches! Piccioni's going for more of an atmospheric approach here with isolated instrumentation drifting over rhythmic string passages, in a way that's halfway between Ennio Morricone and Francis Lai. A few tracks have more whimsical musical touches – and the main theme is played by Roger Williams on piano with chorus backing. Titles include "The Chef", "The Tournament", "The Eggs Are Bewitched", "The Contest", "Prince Rodrigo", and "Rodrigo Leaves The Monastery". This expanded package features very detailed notes – and a whopping 70 tracks from the film – the full soundtrack album initially issued on MGM, 19 cuts from the film score itself, and an additional 36 bonus tracks too!

Charlie Shavers & Ray Bryant QuartetComplete Recordings Vol 3 (Like Charlie/Excitement Unlimited/At Le Crazy Horse Saloon) ... CD
Lonehill (Spain), 1960/1963/1964. Used ... $11.99
The 3rd and final chapter in Lonehill's exploration of the Charlie Shavers/Ray Bryant team – a pairing that's never gotten its full due until now, and which is featured in a great set of previously unreissued material! This set's got a bit less Bryant than the others – and only features 12 tracks with the Shavers/Bryant group – pulled from the 1960 album Like Charlie, a subtle gem that easily matches the strength of Shavers' other MGM work at the time. The remaining bulk of the CD features material from an unusual 1963 large group album called Excitement Unlimited – one that features Shavers working with an octet that includes Billy Byers, Jerome Richardson, Budd Johnson, and George Barnes. The tunes on these sides have a more tightly arranged approach – still with a strong focus on Shavers' fluid solo lines, but set up in a way that's a bit less relaxed than some of the Bryant albums in the series. The remaining 4 tracks on the CD complete the series' presentation of the Le Crazy Horse Paris recordings from 1964 – and the set features a total of 29 tracks that include "Carioca", "The Best Things In Life Are Free", "Opus 5", "Night In Tunisia", "School Days", "Tenderly", "But Beautiful", "Jada", "Blues For Choo Loos", "In The Still Of The Night", and "Bossa Nova Petite".

Spyder TurnerIs It Love You're After – The Whitfield Records Years 1978 to 1980 (Music Web/Only Love) ... CD
Whitfield/Big Break (UK), 1978/1980. New Copy ... $11.99
The overlooked second chapter of Spyder Turner's career – two albums back to back on a single CD! First up is the Music Web album – a fantastic revival in sound for Spyder Turner – a Detroit singer who cut some material for MGM earlier in his career, but never at a level that fully took advantage of his range! This time around, he's back in action in the late 70s, and working with producer Norman Whitfield – who creates this rich, soaring sound for some of Turner's tracks – allowing the singer to move his deep soul style into even more sophisticated territory. Other tunes are warm mellow numbers that show a maturing mode, too – and Gene Page handled the arrangements with a nice sort of Cali 70s vibe. Titles include "Stop", "I've Changed", "Get Down", "I've Been Waiting", "Reincarnation", and "Is It Love You're After". On Only Love, Spyder Turner is again working with producer Norman Whitfield – whose moved on from his Detroit roots to Cali – and works with the sort of soaring sound that he brought to his other late 70s albums on his own label – such as work by Undisputed Truth or Rose Royce! As with both of those groups, Whitfield allows the arrangements to get big, but never in a way that interferes with the quality of the vocals – an approach that really seems to help Turner find the direction he might have otherwise been lacking. Gene Page helps on arrangements – which furthers the sound of the set – and titles include "God Bless The Lady On The Radio", "Only Love", "Let's Rock", "You Can Always Count On Me", "You're So Fine", and "Sunshine".

✨✧ Bobby HatfieldOther Brother – A Solo Anthology 1965 to 1970 ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Overlooked genius from Bobby Hatfield – the lesser-remembered Righteous Brother – or at least one who never hit the fame of his duo partner Bill Medley! Yet Bobby's a hell of a singer, and really steps out wonderfully here – on a range of rare tracks that includes material cut for Verve, but unissued at the time – mixed with other 7" single tracks, a few Philles cuts, and lots more work for MGM. The core of the record – about fifty percent – is the excellent Messin In Muscle Shoals album – a 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. Lots of the other material follows in the same vein – even the tracks for Verve – and titles include "Hang Ups", "Soul Cafe", "So Much Love", "Brothers", "See That Girl", "Woman You Got No Soul", "Paradise", "Crying In The Chapel", "In My Mind", "What's The Matter Baby", "You Left The Water Running", "The Promised Land", "Shuckin & Jivin", "I Saw A Lark", and "Messin In Muscle Shoals". 24 tracks in all – 7 previously unissued!

✨✧ 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".

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)".
