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!

✨✧ Lee HazlewoodThese Boots Are Made For Walkin' – The Complete MGM Recordings ... CD
Ace (UK), 1960s. New Copy 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
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".

Elmer BernsteinGreat Escape – Deluxe Edition ... CD
MGM/Varese, 1963. Used 2 CDs ... $11.99
Nice tune! The groovy main theme to this one far outlived the film, and showed up all over the place in the 60s – on instrumental theme records, TV spoofs, and other oddball sources. The rest of the score's pretty great, too – and features some compelling orchestrations by Bernstein, who's working at his hardest here to top him work on the Bridge On The River Kwai. Some tracks reprise the theme, and others have more of a dramatic sound. Titles include "On The Road", "Cooler & Mole", "Blythe", "Discovery", "Premature Plans", and "The Chase". CD

Eric Burdon & The AnimalsEvery One Of Us ... CD
MGM/BGO (UK), 1968. New Copy ... $9.99
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 ... $14.99
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 HazlewoodSomething Special (with bonus tracks) ... CD
MGM/Light In The Attic, Late 60s. New Copy ... $8.99 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

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".

Henry ManciniPink Panther Strikes Again (expanded edition) ... CD
MGM/Quartet (Italy), 1976. Used ... $16.99
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 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

✨✧ ElfTrying To Burn The Sun ... CD
MGM/Purple (UK), 1975. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ Johnny BristolBristol's Creme ... CD
Atlantic/Collectors Choice, 1976. Used ... $18.99
An excellent smooth soul groover from Johnny Bristol! The album has Johnny stepping into a more sophisticated groove than he used on his early 70s albums for MGM – mixing together styles that sound a lot like those used by artists like Leroy Hutson or Leon Ware at the time, a mix of well-produced backings with just the right touch of strings, keyboards, and tight rhythms. Johnny's voice has a bit rootsier quality than you might be used to for this sort of album – which makes for an even more unique sound, especially on the mellower cuts. Tracks include "Do It To My Mind", "Have Yourself A Good Time Thinkin' Bout The Good Times", "You Turned Me On To Love", "I Sho Like Groovin' With Ya", and "She Came Into My Life". Nice one! CD

Millie JacksonMillie Jackson (1972) (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Spring/Southbound (UK), 1972. New Copy ... $8.99 14.99
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)".

Johnny TillotsonJohnny Tillotson Sings/Here I Am ... CD
MGM/Ace (UK), 1965/1967. New Copy ... About January 1, 2017 (delayed)
Sweet country-styled pop from southern singer Johnny Tillotson – a near-perfect example of the genre, served up here on two different albums for MGM! The set begins with Johnny Tillotson Sings, from 1965 – a well-done set that has a gently stepping groove handled by producer Paul Tanner – a style that's nicely syncopated on most numbers, with light strings on top of tighter rhythms – all moving around with a near-perfect pop approach. Johnny's vocals have a slightly echoey quality at times – almost a legacy from late 50s pop, but cleaner and leaner here – and titles include "One's Yours One's Mine", "Just As Long", "One Red Rose", "I'll Be Seeing You", "How High The Moon", "You Forgot To Say I Love You", and "My Gidget". Here I Am is from 1967, and sounds slightly hipper – filled with lesser-known tracks that mix sweeter themes with some of the headier topics of the times – almost showing that great way that country pop was coming into play with some of the issues and pressures of the late 60s. As before, the album's got some great production by Paul Tannen – and titles include "Tommy Jones", "Long Hair Committee", "Make This Train", "Deafening Roar Of Silence", "Round In Circles", and "Come Back When You Grow Up".

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

✨✧ VariousThat's Swift – Instrumentals From The Norman Petty Vaults ... CD
Ace (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Searing instrumentals from the vaults of Norman Petty – the producer whose Clovis, New Mexico studio helped really transform the sound of rock music in the early 60s – creating a raw guitar sound that had a huge influence for years to come! Petty's music might be somewhere in the mode of surf rock, but it's got the harder edges that the Northwest scene was cooking up by the mid 60s – a raspier sound on the guitar, and a lot of cool studio effects to expand the most wild aspects of the music! These artists were all miles from the ocean – and their music hardly has the teenybopper qualities of surf, and might be seen as more proto-punk overall – with an especially strong tie to the fuzzier sounds that would soon come from the Texas scene. The set brings together tracks from a variety of labels – Dot, Swan, United Artists, MGM, and many others – plus a few unissued tracks, too. Titles include "Door Banger" (aka Ninety Four Second Surf) by The King Pins, "El Gato", by the Chandelles, "Riptide" by The Impact 5, "Wild Jam" by The Gliders, "Dream Theme" by The Techniques, "Boy Blue" by The Keymen, "Termites" by The Cords, "Wild Kitten" by The Rhythm Masters, "Skokiaan" by The Fayros and more. 24 tracks in all – a number of which were unreleased until now!

Grapefruit (UK), 1967. New Copy 3CD ... 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.

Stormy Forest/Tompkins Square, 1971. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ VariousBayou Rockabilly Cats ... CD
Ace (UK), Mid 50s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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.
