AmadanaSibreco Turntable (internal speakers in wood cabinet – complete with USB & RCA outputs, and stylus) ... Turntable
Amadana (Japan), 2015. New Item ... $259.99
A totally wonderful little turntable – solid, stylish, and totally self-contained – with a strong sound that's a lot better than most other plug-and-play models on the market! The first thing that stands out with this one is the base – which is very solid, and has a wood veneer – which seems to give the whole thing a much warmer sound than the mostly-plastic models on the market, especially when you turn the volume way up! The speakers are hidden in the legs – isolated from the platter in a nice way that causes a lot less interference when the volume is up – and the platter features a belt drive, which further reduces distortion – and makes for very solid playback. The turntable spins at 33, 45, and 78rpm – and it comes with a ceramic stereo cartridge and stylus, for easy play right out of the box. And although you can play the unit on its own, it also has RCA outputs that allow you to plug into a full stereo system – as well as a USB output, with MP3 software too. The whole thing's capped off by a great dust cover that keeps the record free of dust while playing – and we'd honestly be hard-pressed to find a better self-contained turntable on the market today!

✨✧ Art Blakey & The Jazz MessengersNight In Tunisia (RCA) ... LP
RCA, 1958. Very Good+ ... $29.99
One of Blakey's best non-Blue Note sides from the time – and a killer album that sports a late 50's lineup of the Jazz Messengers that included Jackie McLean, Johnny Griffin, and Bill Hardman. The three of them sparkle and shine with the sort of brilliance that Blakey's leadership brings to the group, and they wail their way through a 13 minute long reading of "Night In Tunisia", with excellent solos all around, and the other long cuts "Theory Of Art", "Couldn't It Be You?", "Evans", and "Off The Wall". LP, Vinyl record album

ByrdsEight Miles High (mono)/Why (mono) – Rare RCA Studios Versions ... 7-inch
Columbia/Sundazed, 1965. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... $8.99 9.98
The very rare first recordings of these tunes – mono, done in the RCA Studios – legendary in status, and called by some to be the best versions ever! "Eight Miles High" is especially nice – very moody, and slightly slower too – that great edge The Byrds were really getting at the time! Limited pic sleeve single too! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Lesley DuncanSing Lesley Sing – The RCA & CBS Recordings 1968 to 1972 (Sing Children Sing/Earth Mother/bonus tracks) ... CD
RPM (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $15.99
Great work from this overlooked singer – two full albums, and bonus tracks too! First up is the Sing Children Sing album – great work from Lesley Duncan – British singer/songwriter from the late 60s, whose greatest claim to fame was probably her "Love Song", from Elton John's Tumbleweed Connection album – but who's more than great enough here as a lead act! Duncan worked as a backup singer for John – who also appears on this record playing piano – but on this obscure solo album from, she emerges as a richly talented artist on her own – sort of a British answer to Laura Nyro, but with touches that are a bit more folksy overall, thanks in part to the strong use of acoustic instrumentation on the set. The tunes all have a simple solid approach – and in addition to Elton John's work on piano, the record also features a fair bit of guitar from Chris Spedding – on titles that include "Chain Of Love", "Mr Rubin", "Sing Children Sing", "Crying In The Sun", "Love Song", and "Sunshine". Earth Mother has Lesley Duncan at the height of her powers – really moving past some of the folksy roots that were the stock in trade for female singer/songwriters in the 60s – finding the special sort of territory that should have made her as huge as American contemporaries like Carly Simon or Carole King – even though we'd probably say that Duncan is better than both of them combined! There's a hipness to her tunes that's great – understated emotions, wrapped up in beautiful words – given just the right kind of simple backing in a mix of acoustic and electric elements, with maybe even some occasional nods to the sounds taking place in the Island Records scene at the time. Titles include "Time", "Love Will Never Lose You", "Thunder", "Fortieth Floor", and "Old Friends". 2CD set features bonus tracks – "I Love You I Love You", "Exactly Who You Are", and "A Road To Nowhere" – plus single versions of "Sing Children Sing", "Love Song", and "Lullaby".

Evelyn Champagne KingComplete RCA Hits & More ... CD
RCA/Real Gone, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2CD ... $18.99 19.99
A fantastic run of music – all tracks recorded by Evelyn Champagne King for RCA in the late 70s and early 80s – a time when she was continually advancing her groove, thanks to help from studio talents like T Life, Kashif, and Leon Sylvers III! The music here starts in the early days of disco, and moves through a great range of upbeat modes that usually suit King's vocals the best – the kind of ebullient, high-stepping sounds that really seem to set the singer free! 2CD set features a total of 26 tracks – a good number of which are non-LP mixes from singles – and titles include "Back To Love", "Shame (12" mix)", "Teenager (12" version)", "Betcha She Didn't Love You", "Just For The Night", "Till Midnight (12" rmx)", "Aquarius/Let The Sun Shine In", "Music Box (12" mix)", "Dancin Dancin Dancin", "I'm So Romantic", "Out There (12" mix)", "High Horse (rmx)", "Out Of Control (12" rmx)", "Shake Down (rmx)", "Action", "Let's Get Funky Tonight (12" mix)", "Your Personal Touch (dance version)", "I Don't Know If It's Right (12" mix)", "I'm In Love (12" mix)", and "The Spirit Of The Dancer"> CD

Peggy MarchIf You Loved Me – RCA Recordings From Around The World 1963 to 1969 ... CD
Ace (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $13.99
Peggy March is a singer with a surprisingly varied career – an artist that most folks know for only her early little girl pop fame – but one who went onto record a very unusual range of sounds as the 60s moved on! RCA was her label, and while she never hit the heights of the charts after her early hit, the company was more than committed to allowing Peggy's sound to grow and flourish – especially on the international scene, where she not only recorded tracks in other languages, but also picked up new non-American songs, and served up very cool English-language versions! This set really does a great job of moving past the early stuff, and looking at this lost later legacy of March's music – sounds that we'd easily compare to the hipper 60s material by Jackie DeShannon, even though Peggy didn't write her own material. The range of studio talents really keeps things interesting – there's even one track arranged by Ennio Morricone – and titles include "He's Back Again", "If You Loved Me", "He Couldn't Care Less", "Watch What You Do With My Baby", "Johnny Cool", "Kilindini Docks", "Eh Bravo", "Passo Su Passo", "Too Long Away", "Wasurenaiwa", "Ne Joue Pas Les Enfants", "He Couldn't Care Less", "This Heart Wasn't Made To Kick Around", "Can't Stop Thinkin About Him", and "Fool Fool Fool".

Charles MingusComplete Columbia & RCA Albums (10 CD set) ... CD
Columbia, Late 50s/1960s/Early 70s. Used 10CDs ... $24.99
Incredible music from Charles Mingus – a set that's pulled from a few different periods, yet features some of his greatest recordings ever! The package begins with a stunning 2CD version of Tijuana Moods – a true Mingus masterpiece, filled with amazing rhythms and mindblowing solos – presented here with loads of bonus tracks and alternates, too! Then, you hit Mingus' key Columbia years at the end of the 50s – the landmark albums Mingus Ah Uhm and Mingus Dynasty – supported here by an extra CD's worth of important alternate takes – which show the strong development of the music! Next is Mingus in the early 70s – some of his best recordings from this later stretch – the sublime Let My Children Hear Music, easily some of his most creative longform work at the time – and the brilliant 2CD Charles Mingus & Friends In Concert – which reminds us just how strongly Charles can spur on a soloist. The set's completed by the posthumous release of material titled Epitaph – another 2CD set – and the package features detailed notes, recollections from Sue Mingus, and rare photos too! CD

Bill MonroeRCA Country Legends – Bill Monroe ... CD
RCA, 1940/1941. Used ... $3.99
High lonesome, here we come! The earliest treasures from the father of bluegrass, after he struck out on his own. The Country Legends series is probably the best major label series out there right now for our old timey heroes, and Monroe's set is as great as any of them. There are tons of greatest hits packages of Monroe and the Monroe Brothers out there, but what makes this set special, other than nicely remastered original recordings, is the clarity of purpose. 16 great tunes, all from a particular period (consistency is a rare treat with these things people), from one of the greatest ever. What else do you need, a hip movie to tell you to like this kind of music? Includes "Mule Skinner Blues", "No Letter In the Mail", "Six White Horses", "Tennessee Blues", "Were You There?", 'Orange Blossom Special", "Honky Tonk Swing", and more. Great notes & photos, too! CD

✨✧ Toshiko Akiyoshi-Lew Tabackin Big BandKogun ... LP
RCA, 1974. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
Brilliantly bold work from pianist Toshiko Akiyoshi – an artist who's really coming into her own for the 70s – stepping out in a big band format that would win her a wide new audience on both sides of the Pacific! The album's one of the first to feature the ensemble co-led with husband Lew Tabackin – a group that features strong work from American players who include Dick Spencer and Gary Foster on alto saxes, Tabackin and Tom Peterson on tenor, Bill Perkins on baritone, Bobby Shew and Don Rader on trumpets, and Charles Loper and Jim Sawyer on trombones. The horns are only part of the picture, though – as the inventive writing and arranging from Akiyoshi is what really makes the album great – a strong sense of painting with sound, while still keeping things swinging – really unlocking all the best elements that had been opened up for larger ensembles in the previous few years. The set features all original tracks that include "Kogun", "American Ballad", "Henpecked Old Man", "Elegy", and "Memory". LP, Vinyl record album

The title's compelling – and kind of makes you think that this might be one of the pair's more avant-leaning albums – but the overall groove is heavy big band swing, in the manner that Tabackin and Akiyoshi did best together. The record features 6 longish tracks, all with a strong leaning towards breakout solos, and titles include "Interlude", "Village", "Road Time Shuffle", and "Tales Of A Courtesan". Players include Gary Foster, Bill Perkins, Bobby Shew, and Jim Sawyer. LP, Vinyl record album

Manny Albam & Ernie WilkinsDrum Suite ... LP
RCA, 1956. Very Good ... $7.99
Hard-swinging big band material – with a heavy emphasis on drums! The album is a suite of six tracks – all written by either Manny Albam or Ernie Wilkins, both of whom arrange the groups on the set – really letting them open up nicely on the album's longish tracks. Manny and Ernie were two of the more soulful arrangers of their day – and they get some strong performances out of the groups, letting players like Conte Candoli on trumpet, Hal McKusick on alto, Al Cohn on tenor, and Freddie Green on guitar open up in longer tracks driven to intensity by some great drum work handled by the lesser-known (but excellent) Ted Sommer. Titles include "Skinning The Valves", "Dancers On Drums", "Bristling", and "The Octopus". LP, Vinyl record album

Paul AnkaHeadlines ... CD
RCA/Sony (Japan), 1979. New Copy ... $13.99
Paul Anka's a long way from the teen pop of his youth – and he's also nicely far from some of the more disco years too – maturing as a songwriter, both on his own, and on the album's collaborations with heavyweights like Sammy Cahn, or the teams of Barry Mann and Cynthia Weill, and Alan and Marilyn Bergman! The latter two really help give a sense of the spirit of the record – an aging singer finding the right sort of material to open up his palette a bit, but without going for cloying hits. Maybe more in the adult contemporary side of the AOR spectrum at times, but also with a bit more of that Anka punch, too. Titles include "Life Song", "Leave It All To Me", "Andi", "As Long As We Keep Believing", "Headlines", "Never Get To Know You", and "I Can't Get Over You". CD
(Part of the great AOR City series from Japan!)

RCA/Sony (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $13.99
Polished Paul Anka in the best sort of way – that version of the singer/songwriter who was moving past crossover pop, and maybe finding a more mature space for his music! The approach is definitely adult contemporary, but with a bit more of that hook-heavy style that Anka did so well from the start – and the album's production by David Wolfert brings in an undercurrent of soulful keyboards that round out the sound nicely. Titles include "Don't Ever Say Goodbye", "Brought Up In New York Brought Down In LA", "Starmaker", "Listen To Your Heart", "Starting All Over Again", and "This Is Love". CD

Marty Paich brings some nice jazzy charts to this early set from Ann-Margret – just the kind of hip material that made her a swinger from the start! The vocals have a sexy, breathy quality that matches Ann's tight sweater on the cover – and even when Paich grooves in an uptempo style, the lady never loses her cool – matching the leaping, jazzy instrumentation strongly with her own dynamic vocals – but never in a way that's gimmicky or poppy at all. Titles include "Lovie Joe", "Blame It On My Youth", "Baby Won't You Please Come Home", "Bye Bye Blues", "Chicago", and "Teach Me Tonight". CD

One of the most respectable of Ann-Margret's 60s sides for RCA – an early effort that features some tunes recorded in Nashville with Chet Atkins, who gives the lady a nicely countrified bounce! Side one is the "rock side", and has Ann doing some especially nice numbers in this mode – never too over the top and with electric bass setting a nice tone for the tunes. Dick Pierce also handles some arrangements on the set too – a bit more in the usual Ann-Margret mode, but still never too over the top. Titles include "Oh Lonesome Me", "Slowly", "What Do You Want From Me", "I Just Don't Understand", "His Ring", and "Could It Be". CD

Swingin early work from Ann-Margret, always the vivacious one – and we're not even talking about her voice! The album follows in the style of work that Ann was recording for films at the time – punched-up and feisty, with that growling and almost unbridled sexuality oozing forth from most of the numbers. Arrangements are by Bob Florence and HB Barnum, and the album features a nice version of "Senor Blues", plus the tracks "Begin The Beguine", "Thirteen Men", "I Was Only Kidding", "Tell Me Tell Me", and "Make Love To Me".

RCA/Real Gone, Mid 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $19.99 21.98
A fantastic collection of work from those years when singer Ann-Margret first popped up on the American market – young, fresh, and sexy – and willing to do whatever it took to make her music stand out from the pack! Ann-Margret's got a vocal range that's maybe deeper than most of her contemporaries – a lusty growl that makes you feel like she's singing from way down in her toes – with odd bluesy currents mixed with jazzier backings – all in a mode that has really blows away the sultry tones of previous singers like Peggy Lee or Julie London. This 30 track package is a very well-chosen array of tunes from the early RCA years – and includes lots of solo numbers, plus work with Elvis Presley and Al Hirt – on titles that include "Man's Favorite Sport", "Next Time", "Madrid/The Pleasure Seekers", "Mack The Knife", "My Baby Just Cares For Me", "Teach Me Tonight", "The Lady Loves Me", "You're The Boss", "Mr Wonderful", "That Old Black Magic", "Everything Makes Music When You're In Love", "Let Me Entertain You", "Take All The Kisses", "Something To Think About", and "Mister Kiss Kiss Bang Bang".
