Every Mother's SonCome On Down – The Complete MGM Recordings (Every Mothers' Son/Every Mothers' Son's Back) ... CD
MGM/Now Sounds (UK), 1967. New Copy ... $9.99
The complete recordings of Every Mothers' Son – two full albums, and a bonus single too! First up is the self-titled Every Mothers' Son album – filled with cool, catchy numbers that have a wonderfully sunny feel overall – and a spare approach that's a bit different than most of the group's contemporaries! The drums seem much more up in the mix than usual for this sort of work – snapping with a jaunty quality amidst guitar that's a bit more laidback, and harmonized vocals that have that perfect folk-into-pop mode that other Sunshine Pop groups were using at the time. There's a few blue notes here and there, which give the music some of the darker undercurrents you might hear in The Left Banke – and titles include "Come On Down To My Boat", "For Brandy", "I Won't", "Allison Dozer", "Sittin Here", "Come On Queenie", and "Didn't She Lie". The second album is a great step forward for Every Mothers' Son – a set that's got all the catchy charm of their debut, yet a deeper sound overall! There's a great maturation in the music going on here – as some cuts show a love of pop-psych elements, which comes off in fuller backings that swirl strongly around the lyrics – while other tracks have a leaner quality and more acoustic elements, almost into the territory of Beau Brummels on Reprise, especially given the way the vocals come across. The whole thing's a 60s pop treasure – filled with great original tunes that include "Rainflowers", "Dolls In The Clock", "Only Child", "Sally (Life Story #3)", "Put Your Mind At Ease", and "Larry's Birthday Party". CD also features a bonus mono single mix of "No One Knows". CD

BlossomsShockwave ... CD
MGM/Universal (Japan), 1972. Used ... $18.99
The only album we've ever seen from The Blossoms – a trio of female singers who push their music into much hipper territory for the 70s! The album's got a depth that's different than 60s girl group soul – a way of pushing the girl trio format with some touches from gospel, rock, and other righteous modes of the time. Arrangements are by Gene Page and the Paris Brothers – and also move past the usual – making the album a lost treasure that's full of surprises! Titles include "Touchdown", "Last Call For Love", "It's All Up To You", "Fire & Rain", "Moody", and "Cherish What Is Dear To You". CD

Eric Burdon & The AnimalsTwain Shall Meet ... CD
MGM/Sundazed, 1968. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
Great later work from The Animals – a set that's not as tripped-out as some of their other late 60s work, and which almost starts to show Eric Burdon's rising love of soul and funk! The sound is still pretty rockish overall – but there's some great use of bass rumbling at the bottom – bringing up a rumbling quality that fits nicely with Burdon's somewhat bleak presentation of the lyrics at various points. Production by Tom Wilson almost has a raspy, lo-fi sort of feel – different than the bluesier roots of the group, and almost a precursor of indie work in decades to come! Titles include the classic "Sky Pilot", plus "Monterey", "Just The Thought", "Closer To The Truth", "No Self Pity", "Orange & Red Beams", and "We Love You Lil". CD

Eric Burdon & The AnimalsWinds Of Change (mono edition) ... CD
MGM/Sundazed, 1967. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
The Winds Of Change are definitely afoot in the sound of The Animals – as the album's one of their most psychedelic outings ever – and also a bit funky at times too! Production by Tom Wilson is really great – echoey at most moments, with a kind of "flash" and shimmer around the drums that really spaces things out, and almost gives a Velvets sort of feel to the proceedings. The group's bluesier roots are still in place at times – but these have also been tripped-out and abstracted too, in modes that are a few years ahead of other blues rock combos on the rise. Titles include "It's All Meat", "Winds Of Change", "Poem By The Sea", "Yes I Am Experienced", "Hotel Hell", "San Franciscan Nights", and "Man Woman". CD

CowsillsCowsills ... CD
MGM/Universal (Japan), 1967. New Copy ... $13.99
One of of the grooviest groups of their time – and a quintet who manage to exceed the usual on two different fronts – both as a family group, and as a harmony outfit too! The Cowsills have a vocal approach that's far richer than their years on the planet – never kiddie at all, and instead maybe even more well-crafted than most of the 20s pop harmonizers working at the time – thanks to these fab arrangements from Jimmy Wisner, who really has the group soaring from the start – and bringing in these darker, more mature elements to the music that you'd never expect. The whole thing's a wonderful mix of sweet and sad, in a style that goes way beyond the usual pop psych – on titles that include "The Rain The Park & Other Things", "Pennies", "La Ru Du Soliel", "Dreams Of Linda", "River Blue", "Troubled Roses", "How Can I Make You See" , and "(Come 'Round Here) I'm The One You Need".

Gloria GaynorExperience Gloria Gaynor ... CD
MGM/Universal (Japan), 1975. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Warmly gliding soul from Gloria Gaynor – a great little set that has none of the cliches that sometimes mar our memory of Gloria's work, awash in tight arrangements that mix equal part disco and mainstream soul! Much of the record is upbeat, but never over the top – and even the longer tracks have a hook-heavy simplicity that's really great – a bit like the move into club that some of the Motown artists were also making at the time. Meco handled some of the production and arrangements, and titles include Casanova Brown", "(If You Want It) Do It Yourself", "How High The Moon", "The Prettiest Face I've Ever Seen", "What'll I Do", "Tell Me How", "I'm Still Yours", and "Walk On By".

✨✧ Gloria GaynorNever Can Say Goodbye ... CD
MGM/Universal (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
The start of a very successful run for Gloria Gaynor – a seminal bit of crossover 70s soul – one that perfectly linked the dancefloor with the airwaves, and managed to take on more than a few living rooms as well! Gloria's not entirely in full blown disco-diva mode yet, and works here with a soaring Philly-styled groove – of the sort you'd hear with groups like First Choice or Three Degrees – almost grounded a bit in earlier female soul, especially in the vocals and overall changes in the grooves – yet sparkled up plenty with some fuller, richer 70s arrangements. Those are handled by Norman Harris and Harold Wheeler – who do plenty to warm up the production by Meco – and the set includes the stunning 6 minute version of Gloria's big hit "Never Can Say Goodbye", plus "All I Need Is Your Sweet Lovin", "We Belong Together", "Real Good People", "Honey Bee", and "Reach Out I'll Be There".

Dick HymanMoon Gas/Moog The Electric Eclectics (with bonus tracks) ... CD
MGM/Omni (Australia), 1963/1969. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
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

✨✧ AnimalsAnimalism ... CD
MGM/Hip-O Select, 1966. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Pure burning soul from The Animals – a nicely stripped-down set that revels in older R&B styles – cooked up with a version of the group that features Dave Rowberry on Hammond and lots of screaming vocals from Eric B! The original Animals vibe is opened up a bit more with some heavier sounds that reflect the change of moves at the time – but overall, the tracks are mostly shortish and respectful to the roots that inspired the group – in a way that helps bring together music from a range of different sources. Titles include versions of Fred Neil's "Other Side Of Life", Zappa's "All Night Long", Sam Cooke's "Shake", Donovan's "Hey Gyp", and Ray Charles' "Hit The Road Jack" – plus "Smoke Stack Lightning", "Rock Me Baby", "Outcast", "Louisiana Blues", and "Going Down Slow".

MGM, 1968. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A strange one for Legrand – a soundtrack written for an obscure action film that starred Rock Hudson, Ernest Borgnine, Jim Brown, and Patrick McGoohan! The music is mostly orchestral and dramatic – but given Legrand's genius, it's touched with warm chromatic elements that occasionally show his roots in other styles. The whole thing's packaged in a great gatefold cover with photos on the inside, and a dramatic 70s paperback-style painting on the back. Titles include "The Fight", "Through The Ice", "Mission Completed", "The Crevasse", "The Satellite Falls", and "Tigerfish". CD

✨✧ Eric Burdon & WarEric Burdon Declares War ... CD
MGM/Rhino, 1970. Used ... Out Of Stock
War became so popular on their own in later years that it's easy to forget how they first sprung onto the soul charts – here, in an album of many styles that was put together by the wayward Eric Burdon after the dissolution of The Animals. We have to admit that Burdon was a genius to hook onto the rich talents of this LA combo – even though he really didn't know what to do with them on this record. Part of the album's an homage to Roland Kirk, part is an extended reworking of "Tobacco Road", and part is an overly-long bluesy passage called "Blues For Memphis Slim". Fortunately, the record also includes the monster groover "Spill The Wine", one of the first big crossover tracks to popularize the Chicano funk sound of LA – and a great little groover that still hooks us in today.

✨✧ Jerry GoldsmithOur Man Flint/In Like Flint ... CD
MGM/Intrada, 1966/1967. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A pair of spy spoof gems – back to back on a single CD! First up is Our Man Flint, which features excellent soundtrack work by Jerry Goldsmith – possibly his greatest ever! Jerry's usually a bit staid with some of his scores – but working here on the soundtrack to this James Coburn spy spoof film, he's truly fantastic! The approach mixes strings and bossa-inflected grooves with some spookier instrumental touches – either on electric guitar, sax, or a "tortured" Thomas organ and a Solovox – and the overall feel of the album is on a par with the best work of the sort by Lalo Schifrin or Hugo Montenegro! Titles include "Doing As The Romans Did", "All I Have To Do Is Take A Bite of Your Apple?", "Tell Me More About That Volcano", and "Our Man Flint". In Like Flint continues Jerry Goldsmith's great run of grooves for the Flint spy spoof films of the 60s – working in a style that's a lot more complex than Lalo Schifrin or John Barry, but still every bit as groovy! Goldsmith's got this excellent style of swirling together strings, instrumental solos, and lots of cool offbeat elements – all with a sound that's often jazzy, but pretty unusual too – maybe in the best territory of Piero Piccioni over on the Italian scene! Arrangements are by Marty Paich and Warren Barker – who bring their most playful modes to the album – and titles include the vocal numbers "Where The Bad Guys Are Gals" and "Your Zowie Face", plus "Ahh Yer Father's Bob-Lip", "Mince & Cook Until Tender", and "Lost In Space".

✨✧ Roy HamiltonWarm Soul (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
MGM/Poker (UK), 1963/1964. New Copy ... 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".

✨✧ Michel LegrandCops & Robbers ... CD
MGM/Kritzerland, 1973. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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

MGM/Music Box (France), 1974. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the most obscure Lalo Schifrin soundtracks of the 70s – a really weird, spooky little record that's filled with moody touches! Schifrin's not in all-out action mode here – and instead experiments with a range of styles – including some warm, jazzy elements that are especially nice – mixed with larger passages that are more powerful, and blend together tense orchestrations with some of the exotic touches you might guess from the story! Some of the best selections feature scene shifting passages that really illuminate Lalo's ability to tell a story with sound – and titles include "Heavies Approach/Harbor Sequence", "Chinese Street Source", "Finzie's Piano #1", "Felicity", "Mongolian Stripper", "Harbor Chase/Crowds/Conclusion", "Taxi", "Winters Mansion/Winters/It's Time", and "Airports/Street Fight".

Roy HamiltonDark End Of The Street – The Operatic Soul Of Roy Hamilton 1963 to 1969 ... CD
Raven (Australia), 1960s. Used ... $6.99
Incredible work from Roy Hamilton – a range of wonderful tunes from Roy's 60s years, a time when he was really reinventing the sound of his music! Hamilton first burst onto the scene in the 50s – a singer with an incredible voice, but one that was used in more mainstream pursuits. Yet by the time of these sides, Roy had picked up plenty of soul – particularly the country-styled variety that had come from earlier material by Ray Charles and Brook Benton – taken to new heights in the 60s by singers like Joe Tex and Solomon Burke. The sides here show that Hamilton had a big hand in the evolution of the genre too – and the set brings together material that Roy recorded for AGP, Capitol, RCA, and MGM – a whopping 28 tracks that include "Let Go", "Midnight Town Daybreak City", "Gloomy Sunday", "I Taught Her Everything She Knows", "You Shook Me Up", "Lament", "Wait Until Dark", "Angelica", "100 Years", "Hang Ups", "It's Only Make Believe", "Reach Out For Me", "Don't Worry About Me", "Let The Music Play", "Crackin Up Over You", "My Peaceful Forest", and "The Dark End Of The Street".

Incredible Bongo BandBongo Rock (UK pressing with bonus tracks) ... CD
Pride/Mr Bongo (UK), 1973. New Copy ... $7.99
A landmark album that is perhaps the single most influential beat source in hip hop! The record was the brainchild of bongo player Michael Viner – who also happened to be running the Pride subsidiary of MGM at the time. Viner's got a meeeeeean touch on the bongo, hitting it hard and funky like the best 70s conga players – and his approach to the instrument is kind of like a funky update of popular instrumental styles laid down on guitar by The Ventures or on moog by Hot Butter. This album features the classics "Apache" and "Bongo Rock" – both with monster funky breakdowns that showed up on a heck of a lot of hip hop records over the years – plus loads of other goodies like "Last Bongo In Belgium" and "Bongolia". CD features a number of bonus tracks too – including "Kiburi (part 1)", "Sing Sing Sing)", "Apache (Grandmaster Flash rmx)", "Last Bongo In Belgium (Breakers mix)", "Okey Dokey", "Pipeline", "When The Bed Breaks Down I'll Meet You In The Spring", and "Hang Down Your Head Tom Dooley Your Tie's Caught In Your Zipper". 19 tracks in all!

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

President/RPM (UK), Late 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A really great group from the late 60s scene in the UK – one who've got some tremendous talents, but have sadly been overlooked for many years! Hopefully, this set will correct that lack – because it brings Exception back into very sharp focus – giving us all the best of their blues-influenced approach, which easily rivals that of Spencer Davis Group or maybe The Animals during their MGM years! The songs are short, and have a nice sort of punch – but often manage to get a lot of unusual bits into the mix – thanks to clever production twists, odd ways of presenting the familiar instruments, and an overall style that goes way past a simple roots rehash, with a definite ear towards the changing times. CD features 26 tracks in all – including a handful of previously-unissued tracks – and titles include "Girl Trouble", "It's Snowing In The Desert", "Back Room", "Tailor Made Babe", "Jack Rabbit", "Penduulum", "Don't Torture Your Mind", "Hong Kong Blues", "Mrs Cocaine", and "Bum's Puzzle".

Bear Family (Germany), Mid 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The great second chapter of Sonny Burns' too-short career in music – material recorded in the 60s, after Sonny had dropped out of music after burning too brightly in the 50s – and tracks that show an even more mature, fully-formed artist overall! The style here is decidedly country, but still with a deep Texas twang and some of the rougher edges that made Burns so great in the early days – and the material here was recorded for TNT, MGM, and United Artists – all different labels that Sonny hopped around while trying to hit big, which never really seemed to happen. Yet the lack of big fame is what also makes these tracks great – under-discovered gems supported by the usual great Bear Family attention to detail and vivid notes and packaging – which makes for a really great set overall. The music often has a nice Bakersfield sort of vibe, especially on some of the later cuts – and titles include "Bricks & Mortar", "Devil's Disciple", "Patches On My Heart", "Leave The Door Open", "Bottom Of The Bottle", "I Left One On The Bar", "Room Next To Mine", and "I'm Losing My Mind".

The sneering, gritty quality of the group really comes through on these tracks – tight numbers that pack a heavy punch in the short space of a vintage 45 – as a few familiar tunes mix things up with lots of lesser-known gems – all in a mindblowing set of garage psych from the tail end of the 60s! Titles include the MGM singles "Bad Part Of Town", "Did He Die", "Love In A Summer Basket", and "Wish Me Up" – plus the tracks "The Wind Blows Your Hair", "Six Dreams", "Mr Farmer", "Up In Her Room", "No Escape", "Out Of The Question", "Daisy Mae", "Excuse Excuse", "March Of The Flower Children", "Try To Understand", "Can't Seem To Make You Mine", and an unedited rare version of "Pushin Too Hard".

✨✧ Conway TwittyConway Twitty Rocks At The Castaway ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), 1964. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
Think Conway Twitty's only a mainstream country artist? Think again – because in Twitty's early years he was a hell of a rocker – more rockabilly than anything else, even in the early 60s! And while Conway's classics on MGM have always been sought-after singles for rockabilly fans, the singer also made magic in a lot of other ways at the time too – including live performances like the one included in this double-length set! The package offers up a very different site of Twitty than you might be used to from his more polished studio recordings – and there's a loose, rough-edged approach that really takes us back to the kind of small club performance of the time – as Conway sings with unadorned vocals, and the band hits this nice gritty vibe. There's less rockabilly in the mix than you might expect, and Twitty covers a nice range of material that goes way beyond his usual fare – titles that include "What A Dream", "Big Boss Man", "Things", "Got My Mojo Working", "Your Cheatin Heart", "I'm Leavin It Up To You", "Money", "Funny How Time Slips Away", "Born To Lose", "What Am I Living For", "Rinky", and "The Pickup".

✨✧ Phil WoodsPhil Woods & His European Rhythm Machine ... CD
Inner City, 1970. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An excellent album of funky electric jazz – and possibly the best one that Phil Woods cut with his European group! The quartet's a very hip group that's way hipper than its clunky name – with Gordon Beck on electric piano and organ, Daniel Humair on percussion and drums, and Henri Texier on bass, flute, and African percussion – all instrumentalists who dip heavily into the deep bag of their mighty talents for the date, helping to push Phil's music into some very cool new territory! The album cooks a lot harder than Woods' previous MGM date with the Rhythm Machine group in Europe – and has a really freewheeling vibe, and a sound that's almost outside at points. All tracks are long, with a modal electric approach that's very nice – and funky in the best parts – and titles include "Chromatic Banana", "Ultimate Choice", "The Last Page", and "The Day When The World".
