✨✧ Connie FrancisSecond Hand Love & Other Hits ... CD
Mercury/Universal (Japan), 1962. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the more obscure albums from Connie Francis' strong 60s run on Mercury – and one of the best, too! Francis begins the album almost as a country singer – working a bit of Patsy Cline blueness into the record alongside Nashville-style piano lines. And as things progress, there's a bit more pop in the mix – but Francis still has this rich style that's surprisingly expressive, even when carefully balanced – way more than we remember from some of her crossover pop hits. We're not sure who handled arrangements, but the mix of rhythms, piano, and even sometime backing vocals definitely show a Nashville vibe – and titles include "Second Hand Love", "Dreamboat", "Breakin In A Brand New Broken Heart", "It Happened Last Night", "Don't Break The Heart That Loves You", and "Gonna Git That Man".

✨✧ Fern JonesGlory Road (with download) ... LP
Dot/Numero, 1959. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Southern hillbilly soul from Fern Jones – a minister, church singer and songwriter with a real feel for the secular shake of 50s Sun Records, honky tonk, and shout blues – a pure evangelical with a worldly groove! Fern worked the gospel circuit of tent and church shows for many, many years – but only recorded two albums, this one for Dot/Paramount. Fern sings in the torch country style of Patsy Cline, often with spare rockabilly-styled guitar and drums backbeat. This album is probably most noteworthy for the classic song "I Was There When It Happened" – co-written by Fern Jones and made famous by Johnny Cash. It's especially legendary because it was the only gospel number Sam Phillips allowed Cash to include on his first LP. But Fern's album is more than worthy of a late discovery – she's a true pioneer, fearlessly blending the Lord's work with the Devil's music – at a time when such poles were anathema for most artists, fans, and record labels alike! Original album tracks include "You Ain't Got Nuthin'", "I Do Believe", "Be Thankful You're You", "I Ain't Got Time", "Let Tomorrow Be" – plus the bonus tracks "When I Meet You", "By And By", "I Don't Care What The World May Do" and "This World Is Not My Home".

✨✧ Conway TwittyI Love You More Today/To See My Angel Cry – That's When She Started To Stop Loving You ... CD
Decca/Poker (UK), 1969/1970. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A pair of Decca albums from Conway Twitty – back to back on a single CD! I Love You More Today is late 60s magic from the great Conway Twitty – a set from a time when the artist was really coming into his own as a country singer, and starting to hit the tippy top of the field! As part of that Twitty's moved far past his roots as a rocker, and more strongly embraces both mainstream country styles and some of its ideology too – as noted in some of the themes of the record. Twitty can definitely see the dark side of the street, but also clearly has a strength that shows that he's not getting pulled down as much as some of his contemporaries – and the set also features a few bigger crossover tracks, countrified nicely by Conway. Titles include "Star Spangled Heaven", "Games People Play", "Proud Mary", "The Bottle In The Hand", "One For The Money", "World Of Forgotten People", "I Love You More Today", and "I'll Share My World With You". The second album is even better – To See My Angel Cry – and Conway Twitty's really hitting his stride here – strongly focusing on the blue-tinged ballads that proved to be perfect for his voice! That classic Twitty twang is really right at home on the sad songs – the kind of melancholy tracks that he inherited as the legacy of Hank Williams or Patsy Cline, and which he here delivers at a level that's right up there with the best that country music had to offer at the end of the 60s. Twitty's vocals really stretch nicely on these sad tunes – bringing in more feeling than we might have expected years before – and titles include "Be Proud Of Your Man", "My Heart Knows", "I'd Rather Be Gone", "That's When She Started To Stop Loving You", "Girl At The Bar", "All I Have To Offer You Is Me", and "These Lonely Hands Of Mine".
