Brigitte BardotBest Of Bardot ... CD
Philips/DRG, 1960s. Used ... $5.99
A great collection of groovy French pop! Although Brigitte Bardot's best known in this end of the world for her acting, she actually cut quite a few great records in France during the 60s – and this set includes 20 of them – excellent Parisian sounds from the mod generation, with instrumentation that's as sexy as the vocals! Some of the work is recorded with Serge Gainsbourg, or with his assistance – like "Harley Davidson", "Bonnie & Clyde", and an alternate take of "Je T'Aime Moi Non Plus" – but the whole thing's a great batch of groovy and sexy tracks, most of them with excellent production in the French style that's become quite popular with the kids these days! Other titles include "Moi Je Joue", "Ciel De Lit", "Le Soleil", "Oh! Qu'il Est Vilain", and "Contact". CD

Jorge BenBen (LP sleeve edition) ... CD
Philips/Dusty Groove, 1972. New Copy ... $5.99 18.98
A stunner of a record from the mighty Jorge Ben – and a record that catapulted the Brazilian singer to international fame at the time! Ben had already been making magic for almost a decade down in Brazil – and his compositions and grooves left an undeniable impact on the scene in the post-bossa years – but this album has Jorge really emerging as the global soul star he was destined to be – from his powerful stare on the cover, right down to the grit in the grooves! The sound here is a refinement of the samba soul mode that Ben had been brewing up from the late 60s onward – a skittish mix of older samba elements, American soul, and some slight fuller production that really comes into its own here – mixing all the acoustic elements at the core with just a slight electric flourish, but never losing its edge in the process – all to provide Jorge with a sublime backdrop for his really amazing vocals. The set's a monument in funky Brazilian soul – and it includes the huge hit "Taj Mahal", which still sounds great, even after all these years – plus loads of other gems that include "O Circo Chegou", "Domingo 23", "Fio Maravilha", "Paz E Arroz", "Morre O Burro Fico O Homem", and "Que Nega E Essa". A gem all the way through – and a record we'd never part with! CD
(Limited edition of 2000 copies – in a nice LP-styled sleeve!)

Jorge BenBig Ben ... CD
Philips/Universal (Brazil), 1963. New Copy ... $11.99
Brilliant early work from Jorge Ben – a set that shouldn't be confused with the US album of the same name, and which is one of Jorge's first few gems of the 60s! The album's got Ben stepping out with a slightly jazzier feel than on his debut – a style that's still heavily steeped in the guitar-driven samba that first won him fame, but which also features a fair bit of bossa-influenced instrumentation too – bits of piano, flute, and horns that echo with some darker colors and tones that really add a lot to the tunes! The backings are never too full – nor too full of themselves – but this added level of sophistication really helps push Jorge into a range of fresh new sounds – and that's saying a lot, given how fresh his music from the time already was. Titles include "Agora Ninguem Chora Mais", "Telefone De Brotinho", "Patapatapata", "Na Bahia Tem", "Jorge Well", "Deixa O Menino Brincar", "Bom Mesmo E Amar", and "O Homem Que Matou O Homem Que Matou O Homem Mau".

Maria BethaniaPersonalidade ... CD
Philips (Germany), 1970s. Used ... $4.99
A pretty nice little collection of Maria's work for Philips – mostly from the mid 70s, when she was working in that wonderful baroque mode of hers, extra-dramatic, with lots of wonderful arrangements that propelled songs by Caetano Veloso, Chico Buarque, and others into a whole new territory! Titles include "Ronda", "Gema", "Calice", "Cheiro De Amor", "Amor Amor", "Sonho Meu", and "Brincar De Viver". CD

Jane BirkinBaby Alone In Babylone (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Philips/Universal (Japan), 1983. New Copy ... $29.99
A later album from Jane B, but one that's still pretty darn groovy, thanks to arrangements from Alan Hawkshaw! The overall sound is somewhat in keeping with the date – keyboards and rhythms that sound more 80s than 70s – but the tunes themselves have all the breathy, sensual qualities of Birkin's best work with Serge Gainsbourg from years back – no surprise, given that Serge wrote all the tunes in the set! As before, the combination of Birkin and Gainsbourg is hard to resist – still the standard by which so much other work like this should be judged – on either side of the Atlantic. Titles include "Overseas Telegram", "Rupture Au Miroir", "Haine Pour Aime", and "Norma Jean Baker". CD

Chico BuarqueAlmanaque (CD & book) ... CD
Philips/Abril Cultural (Brazil), 1982. New Copy ... $13.99
The kind of record that kept Chico Buarque going strong well into his later years – a beautifully-penned, beautifully-sung album filled with subtle graces and charms! The style here is vaguely samba-oriented, but as with most of Chico's other work, it's delivered in a mode that defies simple genre distinctions – that true blend of modes that Buarque virtually introduced in the early years of MPB, and which he could still pull off better than anyone else. The album's wonderfully free of gimmicks, and has a depth that really rewards repeated listenings – and backings are by a host of top-shelf musicians who include Toquinho, Toninho Horta, Cristovao Bastos, Mauro Senise, Robertinho Silva, Djalma Correa, and Marcio Montarroyos. Arrangements are mostly by Francis Hime, who also plays on the record – but Dori Caymmi and Edu Lobo also contribute arrangements too. Titles include "As Vitrines", "Almanaque", "Tanto Amar", "Angelica", "Moto Continuo", "Ela e Dancarina", and "O Meu Guri". Amazing package, too – comes in a hardcover book-style jacket, with a bonus 42 page book that also includes full color images, with lots of vintage photos, plus notes on the record in Portuguese! The whole thing's sort of an update of the old Abril Cultural style of the 70s – brought into the CD generation. CD

Chico BuarqueChico Buarque (1978) ... CD
Philips (Brazil), 1978. Used ... $18.99
One of Chico's strongest albums of the late 70s – a masterful set of sophisticated tunes, recorded with some great guest help from Milton Nascimento, Zizi Possi, and Elba Ramalho! The album's got a slightly melancholy feel overall – not completely somber, but a slightly world-weary sound that makes the album a bit different and more mature than some of Chico's earlier work – and which beautifully unlocks a new chapter in his tremendous talents. The style is great – perfect for Buarque's growing international fame at the time, but not in a way that's ever too commercial. Titles include "Calice", "Feijoada Completa", "Tanto Mar", "Apesar De Voce", "Pequena Serenata Diurna", and "Ate O Fim". CD

Philips (Brazil), 1984. Used ... $9.99
An overlooked gem from Chico's mid 80s period – a record filled with strong and subtle songs, often backed by some nicely jazz-tinged arrangements from Cristovao Bastos! The album's not as revolutionary as some of Chico's earlier records, but it more than makes up for that with an incredibly solid quality overall – and a mature, sophisticated approach to songwriting that easily matches some of Caetano Veloso's best work of the same time. Titles include "Pleas Tabelas", "Samba Do Grande Amor", "Mil Perdoes", "Vai Passar", "As Cartas", and "Suburbano Coracao". CD

Chico BuarqueMeus Caros Amigos ... CD
Philips (Brazil), 1976. Used ... $19.99
A wonderful mid 70s album by Chico Buarque – proof that he was still one heck of a songwriter, and a pretty decent singer, despite the fact that he'd grown a silly-looking moustache! The production's very nice, too – with that excellent compressed sound that was being used on some Brazilian vocal albums at the time, like work by Joao Donato. Includes the "O Que Sera", a sublime duet with Milton Nascimento that's one of the best versions we've ever heard of the song. Other tracks include "Vai Tabalhar Vagabundo", "Voce Vai Me Sequir", "Corrente", and "Passaredo". CD

Chico BuarqueSinal Fechado (CD & book) ... CD
Philips/Abril Cultural (Brazil), 1974. New Copy ... $13.99
Chico pays tribute to a host of other Brazilian composers – but he manages to make the work entirely his own, thanks to a deeply personal approach! Styles here run the gamut from samba to sophisticated, often handled with slightly jazzy undercurrent – and backings are by Perinho Albuquerque, in a warm mode that sometimes has fuller flute, guitar, and percussion – but which also drops out at times to give the record a much more intimate approach. Tunes are written by Tom Jobim, Gilberto Gil, Noel Rosa, Nelson Cavaquinho, Vinicius De Moraes, and Sebastiao Nunes – and titles include "Festa Imodesta", "Filosofia", "Cuidado Com A Outra", "Lagrima", "Voce Nao Sabe Amar", "Ligia", and "Sem Compromisso". Amazing package, too – comes in a hardcover book-style jacket, with a bonus 42 page book that also includes full color images, with lots of vintage photos, plus notes on the record in Portuguese!

Chico BuarqueVida ... CD
Philips (Brazil), 1980. Used ... $18.99
An album with as much depth and richness as the title might imply – a wonderful record from Chico Buarque's newly sophisticated years at the end of the 70s! The set's got a quality that's almost timeless – an interwoven blend of styles that features some of Chico's modes from earlier years, but also an influence that's almost European at times – an approach that has Buarque rising up with some of the great global singer/songwriters, transcending standard MPB with a sense of confidence and personality that's really amazing. Arrangements are by Francis Hime, Tom Jobim, and Roberto Menescal – and most tracks have some prominent guitar played gently, but effectively next to the vocals – handled by players who include Octavio Burnier, Arthur Verocai, and Geraldo Azevedo. Titles are nearly all originals by Chico – with tracks that include "Vida", "Ja Passou", "Fantasia", "Qualquer Cancao", "Nao Sonho Mais", "Bye Bye Brasil", "Morena De Angola", and "De Todas As Maneiras".

Erasmo CarlosCarlos, Erasmo – Erasmo Carlos (1971) ... CD
Philips/Light In The Attic, 1971. New Copy ... $13.99 15.98
Erasmo Carlos sounds even cooler here than usual – still working with tunes penned with his brother Roberto – but also taking on music by Caetano Veloso, Jorge Ben, and Marcos Valle too! There's a heady undercurrent to the record that's maybe a filtering-through of an earlier Tropicalia vibe – a mode that Erasmo never embraced, but which leaves its impression in some of the more striking arrangements here – especially in the way things trip out at all the best times! Fuzzy guitar and offbeat production really add a lot to the set – and titles include "Maria Joana", "Agora Ninguem Chora Mais", "26 Anos De Vida Normal", "Cica Cecilia", "Mundo Deserto", "Sodoma E Gomorra", "Masculino Feminio", and "De Noite Na Cama".

Jorge BenA Banda Do Ze Pretinho (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Som Livre/Bomba (Japan), 1978. Used ... $14.99
Funky, soulful, and totally wonderful – a wicked late 70s live set from Jorge Ben – and one of his few post-Philips albums that really holds onto the best energy from earlier years! The date's a live one, and the group grooves in a style that's got plenty of Africa Brasil touches – mixed with some other soulful and funky modes too – always great for Jorge's wonderful vocals, especially on some of the earthier tracks. The production is nice and lean – with a core focus on Jorge's great voice, and the funky instrumentation of the band – which really lets the fantastic sound of the record come through strongly, without some of the heavier elements on some of Jorge's 80s records. The whole thing's great – and titles include "Troca Troca", "Bom Dia, Boa Tarde Boa Noite Amor", "A Banda Do Ze Pretinho", "Denize Rei", "Berenice", "Amante Amado", and "Era Uma Vez Treze". CD

Som Livre/Discobertas (Brazil), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 4CD ... $54.99
Four albums from the second chapter in the career of Jorge Ben – packaged here in a single set, with a few bonus tracks too! First up is A Banda Do Ze Preinho – a record that's funky, soulful, and totally wonderful – a wicked late 70s live set from Jorge Ben – and one of his few post-Philips albums that really holds onto the best energy from earlier years! The date's a live one, and the group grooves in a style that's got plenty of Africa Brasil touches – mixed with some other soulful and funky modes too – always great for Jorge's wonderful vocals, especially on some of the earthier tracks. The production is nice and lean – with a core focus on Jorge's great voice, and the funky instrumentation of the band – which really lets the fantastic sound of the record come through strongly, without some of the heavier elements on some of Jorge's 80s records. The whole thing's great – and titles include "Troca Troca", "Bom Dia, Boa Tarde Boa Noite Amor", "A Banda Do Ze Pretinho", "Denize Rei", "Berenice", "Amante Amado", and "Era Uma Vez Treze". Salve Simpatia is late 70s funky soul from Jorge Ben – a record that tightens up the sound a bit from his earlier years on Philips – but still keeps in all the core elements we love so much! The tracks bounce along with a tight samba soul approach that's built very much on Jorge's earlier experiments – handled with a bit more modern soul on the arrangements, but in a way that only makes the grooves come across more directly – in a style that's akin to some other Brazilian artists who were shifting more soul towards soul from other styles at the time – such as Marcos Valle and some of his contemporaries. Titles include "Salve Simpatia", "Ive Brussel", "Waldomiro Pena", "Adelita", "Occulatus Abis", and "Menina Crioula". Alo Alo Como Vai has Jorge working in a smoother vein than on his Philips sides, with the same sort of modern soul approach that Marcos Valle and other older Brazilian singers were using at the time. But since Jorge's always been a soulster from the start, the style works perfectly for his warm vocals and his keen talent for putting over a groove. Arrangements have kind of a brassy funky samba groove – and titles include "Ma Ma Ma Ma Mae", "Solitario Surfista", "Olha A Pipa", "Cae Cae Caetano", "Alo Alo, Como Vai?", and "A Cegohna Me Deixou Em Mardureira". Bem Vinda Amizade is an 80s groover with a sound that's a bit of a change from his 70s classics! The backings show Ben picking up some modern soul elements from the US scene of the time – but these are also mixed with some rougher, rhythmic styles that are definitely Brazilian – which makes for a really compelling blend – quite similar to the samba and soul mix of Jorge's 70s records, but tuned towards the ears of a different generation overall. Bits of boogie mix in to the groove nicely – and titles include "Katarina Katarina", "Para Que Digladiar", "Santa Clara Clareou", "O Diam Em Que O Sol Declarou O Seu Amor Pela Terra", "Lorraine", and "Luiz Wagner Guitarreiro". CD set features 3 bonus tracks – "Natal Brasileiro", "Waimea 55,000", and "Saci Perere". CD

Gilberto GilE-Collection – Sucessos & Raridades ... CD
Warner (Brazil), Late 70s/Early 80s. Used 2CD ... $9.99
A pretty cool collection of work by Gilberto Gil – featuring one disc of hits, and another of rarities! The hits – or "sucessos" – are from his years at Warner and Som Livre, when Gil was working in a mode that was slicker and funkier than his 70s stuff for Philips, but still pretty nice overall. The "raridades" are even better, though – and include tracks that were b-sides to singles, from films, from collections of samba, or tributes to other artists. The 2CD set has 27 tracks in all – and titles include "Gaivota", "Senhor Delegado", "Macapa", "Gimme Your Love", "Pra Fazer O Sol Nascer", "Saudade Da Bahia", "Mico Preto", "Luar", "Esoterico", "Estrela", "Guerra Santa", and "Um Trem Para As Estrelas".

Jack JonesAll The Things You Are – The Love Collection ... CD
Universal (UK), Mid 60s. Used 2CD ... $6.99
Sublime vocals from one of our favorite male vocalists of the 60s – the deep voiced Jack Jones, one of the best at putting over a ballad or a love song at the time! Jack's got a style that's smooth and sophisticated – but never soppy or slick – kind of a mature, grown-up poise that really transforms any of the material he sings, as you'll hear on this well-selected batch of work from Jones' key years at Kapp Records. Jones' work from the time was a strong influence on the work of Scott Walker – and there's a really direct line between these tunes and some of the material that Walker did during his Philips years. (Ever wonder about Walker's influences? Try going past the obvious Jacques Brel to look at Icemen like Jerry Butler and Jack Jones! This 2CD collection is a wonderful introduction to some of Jack Jones' greatest recordings – and despite the "love collection" title, it's far better than you'd think! 34 tracks in all – with titles that include "What The World Needs Now Is Love", "True Love", "And I Love Her", "Charade", "If You Go Away", "Hit The Road To Dreamland", "Rosalie", "Somewhere Along The Way", "You're Sensational", "You're My Girl", "Dear Heart", "Close Your Eyes", "Summertime Promises", "Fly Me To The Moon", and "Love With The Proper Stranger".

Sandra Phillips/Bette WilliamsSwamp Dogg's Southern Soul Girls ... CD
Canyon/Kent (UK), 1970/1971. New Copy ... $10.99 18.99
Forget the Swamp Dogg reference in the title – because the work here is totally different than his usual bag – and very much in the best female southern soul mode of the time! The first half of the CD features the rare Canyon album Too Many People In One Bed by Sandra Philips – a heck of a great singer, and even though she only got a chance to cut this one album, it's more than enough to make her tops in our book! Jerry (Swamp Dogg) Williams produced, and the set's got a sweet southern style that puts it right up there with the best work of Ann Sexton, Tommie Young, or other obscure southern females from the same generation – a great mix of heartbreaking soul and more righteous modes – definitely enough to show that despite her deep feelings, Sandra's no pushover! Williams wrote most of the songs as well – but they're quite different from his usual fare, quite sensitive stuff without any of the Swamp Dogg jokes or political moments you might expect. Titles include "After All I Am Your Wife", "Please Don't Send Him Back To Me", "Some Mother's Son", "My Man & Me", "Rescue Song", and "To The Other Woman (I'm The Other Woman)". The second half of the CD features some equally great work by Bette Williams – another singer who worked with Swamp Dogg during the same time, but with a style that was almost funkier overall! Most of the Williams material here was issued on singles for the Gregar label, but the set also features some unissued tracks too, plus 2 numbers from the Swamp Dogg Presents label. Titles include "Got To Travel On", "He Took My Hand", "Now That I'm Gone", "If She's Your Wife", "Can't Win For Losing", "A Feeling", and "Another Man Took My Husband's Place". CD also features the bonus track "Robin Right On". CD

Colpix/Warner (Japan), 1963. Used ... $8.99
Nina's folsky, but she's also jazzy too – and the album's from a key time in which she was finding a very special way to bring the two modes together! Simone could have been a straight jazz singer if she wanted – but as records like this always remind us, she was always striving for something different – a bolder, more righteous way of expressing herself – opening up with a new sort of power that was perfect for the coming change in the 60s! The album's a live one – a setting that always seems to have Nina hitting her stride – and even the familiar tunes take on new energy in the context – a sense of pride and spirituality that's already as great as her work to come for Philips Records. Titles include "Erets Zavat Chalav", "Silver City Sound", "The Young Knight", "The Twelfth Of Never", "Vanetihu", "Lass Of The Low Country", and "When I Was A Young Girl". CD

Only Nina could make us love a "strings" setting so much – moving past the sleepiness that usually graces such vocal albums, and using the backings to give her work an added level of majesty and power that we really really love! The feel is a bit like some of Nina's later Philips recordings – in that the larger arrangements are used to hint at larger moods and concepts that lurk behind familiar and folksy tracks. The approach is most famously heard on the album's incredible reading of "I Loves You Porgy" – but all titles are great, and other tunes include "Pigs Foot & A Bottle Of Beer", "Chain Gang", "The Man With The Horn", and "Falling In Love".

One of the best collections of 60s girl pop we've seen in years – all rare tracks pulled from the vaults of Columbia and RCA Records – presented with fantastic sound and a great set of notes! The collection's more on an Ace Records level than most we've seen from the Real Gone label – and certainly is a wonderful antidote to all the shoddy, cheapo collections of material like this on the market – a great testament to how great things can sound when the right sort of folks are put in charge of the project! The choice of cuts is great – very well-balanced between soul and pop, and artists you'll know and those you won't – with tracks that include "I Don't Want No Mama's Boy" by Erma Franklin, "I'm Gonna Destroy That Boy" by The What Four, "You're My Loving Baby" by The Sweet Things, "Stand By Me" by Little Eva, "Sweet Hunk Of Misery" by Linda Carr, "Don't Monkey With Me" by The Lollipops, "Baby You're Mine" by Sandi Shelton, "I Wish I Had Known" by Sandra Philips, "Why Don't You Do Right" by Nichelle Nichols, "I Just Don't Understand" by Carmen Cole, and "No News" by The Glories.

A beautiful collection of the music of Antonio Carlos Jobim – and one that features some songs recorded by the maestro himself, and other recordings of his compositions handled by key Brazilian contemporaries! The title's a reference to the way the set's divided up – in that CD 1 is "beach", with some slightly breezier tunes – and CD2 is "forest", with some deeper strands of Jobim's work, especially moving into the 70s. The package features 30 tracks in all, and a good number of harder-to-find tracks from Brazilian Philips recordings, as well as Verve classics – with titles that include "A Felicidade" by Sylvia Telles, "So Danco Samba" by Wanda De Sah, "Samba De Uma Nota So" by Os Cariocas, "O Amor Em Paz" by Toninho Horta, "Piano Na Mangueira" by Quarteto Em Cy & MPB4, "Olha Maria" by Chico Buarque, "Vivo Sonhando" by Stan Getz & Joao Gilberto, "Correnteza" by Boca Livre, "Dindi" by Sylvia Telles, and "Aguas De Marco" by Elis Regina & Antonio Carlos Jobim – plus "So Tinha De Ser Com Voce", "Passarim", "Luiza", "Chega De Saudade", "Triste", and "Wave" by Jobim himself.

✨✧ Eddie HarrisIn Sound/Mean Greens ... CD
Atlantic/Rhino, 1965/1966. Used ... Out Of Stock
Wow! We can never get enough of Eddie Harris. Despite all of the silly situations he's ended up in over the years, an album like In Sound still stands as a beautiful testament to all of the raw power in Eddie's playing. His tone is perfect, and totally unique – and he plays here with Cedar Walton on piano, Ron Carter on bass, Billy Higgins on drums, and the great Ray Codrington on trumpet, who also played with the JFK Quintet. No tricks here, just incredibly solid jazz playing, on tracks like Eddie's famous "Freedom Jazz Dance", plus "Born To Be Blue" and "Cryin' Blues". Mean Greens is another example of classic 60s soul jazz material by Eddie – and proof that the move to Atlantic was a good one! As usual with Eddie's 60s sessions, the players are very hip – and feature an amalgamation of younger and lesser-known talents like Melvin Jackson, Ray Codrington, and Sonny Philips. Cedar Walton also plays some lovely piano on the record, giving a few tracks a bit more of a lyrical touch than usual – and Eddie responds to this nicely in his solos. Includes an early take of "Listen Here", with Eddie on electric piano, next to Sonny Philips' organ. Also with "Goin' Home", "Blues In the Basement", and "Mean Greens". CD

✨✧ Jacques BrelLive In Paris 1960/1961 ... CD
Fremeaux & Associates (France), 1960/1961. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Rare live material from the great Jacques Brel – almost all of which has never been issued before, and stands as a much-needed addition to his catalog of classics in the 60s! The recordings are great – done for radio, and re-presented here with fidelity that's every bit as rich as Brel's live recordings on Philips – which, like these tracks, really show the sense of animation and expression that Jacques brought to his presentation of his lyrics – the sense of wit and intelligence that always made Brel the best (and possibly only) true interpreter of his songs! The tunes are the stuff of legend – biting commentary on love, live, and postwar French society – with backings from the larger Olympia Orchestra on most tracks, plus accordion by Jean Corti, and piano by Francois Rauber. Titles include "Bruxelles", "La Statue", "Rosa", "La Valse A Mille Temps", "Seul", "La Dame Patronnesse", "Les Singes", "Les Paumes Du Petit Matin", "L'Ivrogne", and "Quand On A Que L'Amour". CD
