Rita ReysToday – Recorded In London ... LP
Philips (Netherlands), 1969. Very Good ... $19.99
An incredibly groovy record from Dutch singer Rita Reys – quite possibly her grooviest ever, thanks to some very hip London touches from the Scott Walker team of Peter Knight on arrangements and Johnny Franz on production! At the end of the 60s, London was definitely one of the hippest places for a vocalist to work – a place where singers like Elis Regina, Blossom Dearie, and Ella Fitzgerald all opened up their talents tremendously. Rita does the same here – working with instrumentation that's full, flowing, and perfectly pitched to handle both the upbeat moments on the record, and the more contemplative ones – cast out over a well-chosen batch of tunes that go way beyond the standards! Titles include "The Moment Of Truth", "Soon It's Gonna Rain", "Our Language Of Love", "Sing A Rainbow", "You'd Better Love Me", "More Than You Know", and "Come Back To Me". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original Dutch pressing! NOTE: record has a very light warp, but plays fine. Cover has a small mark from an old sticker in one corner.)

Rita Reys & The Pim Jacobs TrioMarriage In Modern Jazz ... CD
Philips/Phonogram (Japan), 1960. Used ... $6.99
Hip vocal tracks from Dutch singer Rita Reyes – recorded with backing by the Pim Jacobs Trio, a lively combo that features Pim's piano, plus bass and guitar – a nicely light rhythmic style that really works well for the vocals! The format is simple, but compelling – and the record's a great chance to hear Rita at her best – singing in a style that made her one of the best European female jazz singers of her day – right up there next to Monica Zetterlund, Karin Krog, and a rare few others to come to prominence at the start of the 60s. Titles include "Summertime", "I've Got The World On A String", "Too Close For Comfort", "But Not For Me", "Thou Swell", "Like Someone In Love", and "No Moon At All". CD

Kent (UK), 1967. New Copy ... $8.99
A sweet female Northern groover – recorded for Dore Records in the 60s, but making its worldwide debut here on a limited 45! The tune's got a soaring soul feel that's totally great – very much like some of the best British takes on American Northern grooves – swirling strings underneath Rita's wonderful lead vocals. The flipside features an instrumental version, by the Dore Strings. 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Rita LeeAtras Do Porto Tem Uma Cidade (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Philips/Polysom (Brazil), 1974. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A wild solo project from Rita Lee – done after the breakup of Os Mutantes, and offered up almost as some sort of commentary on mainstream rock in the 70s! There's a much more straightforward approach to the music here – a sometimes-glammy sound that's echoed by the band's space-style costumes and makeup – but there's also some weirdly old-style rock instrumentation too, almost like the way that an artist like Gary Glitter could fold the 50s and 70s together in his music, and come across making something very weird and new. Here, the keyboards are almost stronger than the guitars – and Rita herself plays moog, melotron, organ, and piano – on titles that include "Tem Uma Cidade", "Menino Bonito", "Mame Natureza", and "Eclipse Do Cometa".

✨✧ Rita LeeHoje E O Primeiro Dia Do Resto Da Sua Vida (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Polydor/Polysom (Brazil), 1972. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A tripped-out batch of hard jamming tracks from ex-Mutante Rita Lee – recorded with assistance from all the members of the group at the time, but in a mode that's quite different overall! Lee is clearly the star of the show here – singing all lyrics with a much fiercer vocal approach than on her earlier solo album – pushing things hard to keep up with the jamming keyboards of Arnaldo Baptista and guitar of Sergio Dias – both of whom are working with the energy that would show up in the Mutantes styles in the years after Lee departed. One of the most compelling aspects of the record is the structure of the tunes – less conventionally rockish overall than the direction Os Mutantes were moving towards – and still with that strong dramatic flair that Lee always provided when in the group. Titles include "Vamos Tratar Da Saude", "Amor Branco E Preto", "Superficie Do Planeta", "Teimoisia", "Tapupukitipa", "Beija Me Amor", and "Frique Como". LP, Vinyl record album

"Love Is All You Need" is more full-on funky soul – the kind of cut you might hear from Linda Williams or Marlena Shaw! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Joe CockerJoe Cocker! (1969) ... LP
A&M, 1969. Very Good ... $14.99
A landmark album from Joe Cocker – and a set that took blue-eyed soul in a whole new direction at the end of the 60s! The album's a surprising stunner all the way through – one that really gets past some of the overdone Cocker cliches that held on a bit too strongly in later years – served up here in relative simplicity, with core backing by Chris Stainton and The Grease Band, plus some key LA help from Leon Russell, and a bevy of backup singers that includes Merry Clayton, Bonnie Bramlett, Rita Coolidge, and Patrice Holloway. Russell co-produced the set, and his soulful touch definitely helps do a lot for Cocker's already-amazing vocals – adding in an undercurrent of funk that wasn't heard on Joe's first album. Titles include a classic remake of "She Came In Through The Bathroom Window", plus "Delta Lady", "Something", "That's Your Business Now", "Hitchcock Railway", "Dear Landlord", "Darling Be Home Soon", and "Hello Little Friend".

Cool KnightsBana Mulenga ... LP
Private (Italy), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $19.99
Quite an obscure group from the Zambian scene of the 70s – and one who've got a vibe that's maybe a bit more soulful than some of their better-known Zamrock contemporaries! The octet have a great way of trading voices back and forth with their grooves – in a mode that's almost South African at some points, but which also seems influenced by American soul, too – especially on some of the more hard-grooving numbers! The more sing-song tracks are still plenty seductive, too – and titles include "Tired Of Being Alone", "My Sweet Rita", "Ngonile", "My Quanty Shoes", and "I Don't Doubt About You".

The set was cut with an electric big band, and it features long tracks that groove like prime mid 70s MPS work – vibes out front on the solos, and the band grooving and vamping in a style that mixes funky jazz with big band grooving. Titles include the great funky original "Lions Den", plus nice takes on "Raunchy Rita", "Psychedelic Sally", and "Killer Joe". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Bobby HutchersonHighway One ... LP
Columbia, 1978. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A wicked post-Blue Note session from Bobby Hutcherson – one that's put together in a different way than his previous work, but still completely sublime throughout! The feel is almost to Hutcherson's earlier work what Woody Shaw's Columbia recordings were to his – tighter, with sharper production – yet still wonderfully soulful and with a strong sense of spirit. Key soloists include Freddie Hubbard on trumpet and Hubert Laws on flute – and the record also features George Cables on acoustic and electric piano, Cedar Walton on acoustic piano, and Eddie Marshall on drums. Includes the lovely "Sweet Rita Suite", plus "Circle", "Secrets Of Love", and "Bouquet". LP, Vinyl record album

Bobby HutchersonHighway One/Conception The Gift Of Love/Un Poco Loco ... CD
Columbia/BGO (UK), 1978/1979/1980. New Copy 2CD ... $14.99
A trio of incredible records from Bobby Hutcherson – two on CD for the first time ever! Highway One is a wicked post-Blue Note session from Bobby Hutcherson – one that's put together in a different way than his previous work, but still completely sublime throughout! The feel is almost to Hutcherson's earlier work what Woody Shaw's Columbia recordings were to his – tighter, with sharper production – yet still wonderfully soulful and with a strong sense of spirit. Key soloists include Freddie Hubbard on trumpet and Hubert Laws on flute – and the record also features George Cables on acoustic and electric piano, Cedar Walton on acoustic piano, and Eddie Marshall on drums. Includes the lovely "Sweet Rita Suite", plus "Circle", "Secrets Of Love", and "Bouquet". Conception is a really beautiful album from Bobby Hutcherson – late in his 70s career, but handled with the soulful depth of his brilliant early 70s work on Blue Note! The group's got George Cables on piano and Eddie Marshall on drums, plus a bit of extra percussion work by Bill Summers – and they're augmented by some larger arrangements on a number of tracks, but in a way that never gets in the way of the core souful playing on the record. Cedar Walton put the whole thing together with a masterful talent – both leading, arranging, and producing – and Bobby's never sounded better carving out his message on vibes. Titles include "Remember To Smile", "No Siree Bob", "Dreamin", "Dark Side Light Side", and "Quiet Fire". Un Poco Loco is a surprisingly great album by Bobby Hutcherson – and like his other albums for Columbia, a record that manages to be smooth, yet still has an edge! The format's bigger and more ambitious than previous years, but it's also an extension of the modal soulful style he forged with Harold Land – a really stretched out approach to the vibes that differs nicely from his 60s work, and which has some really soulful touches throughout. The group features George Cables on electric and acoustic piano, John Abercrombie on guitar, and Peter Erskine on percussion – but the real strength of the set is Bobby, who slides between vibes and marimba with a skittish energy that really cracks a lot of life into the set. Titles include "Un Poco Loco", "Ivory Coast", "The Sailor's Song", "Ebony Moonbeams" and "I Wanna Stand Over There". CD

I Marc 4GLP 1002 (180 gram vinyl) (2017 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Sonor (Italy), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $28.99
There's few groups cooler than I Marc 4 – one of the hippest forces in the Italian sound library studio scene of the 70s – ultra-hip, often-funky, and as groovy as groovy can be – even though these guys were continuously working behind the curtain, and never getting any sort of real exposure to the public! That hasn't stopped their music from becoming the stuff of legend, though – as over the years, material like this has rightly earned the group strong praise from legions of collectors – of both instrumental funk, funky jazz, and hip soundtrack material. Titles on this volume include "Drumming", "Key Board", "Sambalto", "Filter", "Geras", "Agora", "Mask", "Boxes", "Ballan", "Rita", and "Questions". LP, Vinyl record album

Os MutantesMutantes Ao Vivo ... LP
Som Livre (Brazil), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
A rare live album recorded by the Mutantes during the years after Rita Lee and Arnaldo Baptista left the group, and when the only surviving original member Sergio Dias turned the group into a very competent progressive rock outfit. The sound is very different than their early albums, but it's actually pretty darn great, if you dig 70's era Yes or ELP. This live set has them jamming more than ever, with lots of long drawn out keyboard solos and guitar licks, and vocals that are a bit more soulful than on some of their other prog albums. Titles include "Hey Tu", "Anjos Do Sul", "Sagitarios", and "Esquizofrenia". LP, Vinyl record album

Os MutantesTudo Foi Feito Pelo Sol (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Som Livre/Polysom (Brazil), 1974. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $32.99
Wild! This lost Mutantes LP fits in between Mutantes E Seus Cometas and the Mutantes Ao Vivo LP – and like the latter, it's got a very progressive feel! The band has changed membership (Rita Lee's no longer in the group), and it's clear that they've been listening to a lot of Yes – as you can hear in the very Rick Wakeman-esque keyboards of Tulio Mourao. The sound is still pretty groovy, though, although we should let you know that it's more prog-rock than avant-rock (which is how we might characterize their earlier stuff). There's lots of very tight jamming by the band, with hard guitar solos, spacey keyboards, and tight ensemble playing – a little bit like the early titles by Som Imaginario. Tracks include "Pitagoras", "Cidadao Da Terra", "Tudo Foi Feito Pelo Sol", "Desanuviar", and "Deixe Entrar Um Pouco D'Agua No Quintal". LP, Vinyl record album

The tracks are long, and two numbers have a really nice Latiny flair – with Art spinning out some aggressive solos on top of fast-running grooves, in a way you'd be surprised to hear on one of his albums from the time! Titles include "Rita San", "My Laurie", "Ballad of The Sad Young Men", and "Mambo De La Pinta".

Joe RaposoElectric Company – Original Soundtrack (CRA pressing) ... LP
CRA, 1974. Very Good+ ... $16.99
Brilliant stuff – the follow-up to Sesame Street, a hipper show that was aimed at older kids, and which kind of played up the groovier aspect of the music a bit more at times. The soundtrack features performances by Rita Moreno, Morgan Freeman, June Angela, and Skip Hinnant – as well as many others – and the tunes are a groovy groovy batch of tunes written by Joe Raposo in the same mode as his best work for Sesame Street. If anything, there's a bit more hippie in this one – as well as a bit more Multiplication Rock goofiness – as you'd guess by tunes with titles like "Giggles Goggles", "Silent E", "Easy Reader", "Clam Song", "Sign Song", "D", and "Punctuation".

Sony (UK), Late 50s/1960s/1970s/1980s/Early 90s. New Copy 3CD ... $12.99 13.99
The coolest collection we've ever seen on Toots Thielemans – a truly unique, truly wonderful musician who can not only play jazzy harmonica and guitar, but also whistle beautifully in a way that's been used by countless other artists over the years! Toots has made a number of great records of his own, and also contributed his talents to many sessions for other artists too – and this great package brings together the best of those worlds, with material from Thielemans albums from the 50s onwards – plus performances on records by artists who include Paul Simon, Dianne Reeves, Rogier Van Otterloo, Rita Reys, Aziza Mustafa Zadeh, Vanessa Rugin, Diana Krall, and others! The 60 track set is a wonderful introduction to the music of Toots – but also includes plenty for longtime fans, too – and titles include "Sous Le Ciel De Paris", "Stardust", "I Won't Last A Day Without You", "Bluesette", "Night Game", "Killer Joe", "La Vie En Rose", "Take Five", "Wat Zonde", "Dat Mistige Rooie Beest", "Moments", "The Summer Knows", "Coracao Vagabundo", "Winter Green & Summer Blue", "Two Of A Kind", "Blue In Green", "So Rare", "Waltz For Debby", "Quiet Evenings", and "Obsession".

Cal TjaderAgua Dulce ... CD
Fantasy/BGP (UK), 1971. New Copy ... $9.99 13.99
One of our favorite Cal Tjader albums ever – and one of the first to have his vibes working alongside Fender Rhodes! The record's a surprising little set from the start of the 70s – one that almost has Cal picking up some of the New York sounds of a few years before, then mixing them up with a hipper west coast electric style in the end – a Fantasy Records vibe that meshes together a few different modes, and comes up with a rich new style in the process! There's a bit of vocals on the set – somewhat unusual for Cal Tjader, and often used to augment the soulfully snapping grooves of the best tunes – but even more amazing is the heavy use of Fender Rhodes, played here by the amazing Al Zulaica, who's work on the album really ranks right up there with the best early 70s keyboardists on the coast! Zulaica's piano is amazing next to Cal's warmly chromatic vibes – and other instrumentation includes saxes from Bill Perkins, flute from Mel Martin, trumpet from Luis Gasca, moog from Rita Dowling, and percussion from both Pete and Coke Escovedo. Titles include the killer "Aqua Dulce (Cool-Ade)", a fantastic version of "Gimme Shelter", a sublime of Clare Fischer's "Morning", and the cuts "Ran Kan Kan", "Descarga Cubana", "Curacao", and "Somewhere In The Night".

Tramp (Germany), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $19.99
No need to count down to soul – because it's already here, and served up in a stunning array of rare tracks from the 60s and 70s! We've always loved the Tramp label for their superb take on classic funk – they've been funky 45 specialists right from the start – but this time around, they turn their mighty ears towards the deep underground of indie soul singles – and serve up some really unique cuts that we'd never have heard otherwise! There's a great sense of variety here – there's definitely a few funky cuts, but there's also some deep ballads, some sweet harmony moments, and even some unusual cuts that seem to have a style that's completely onto themselves – which furthers the sense of discovery in the set. We've heard a few of these before, but may are quite new to our ears – and titles include "Do Dat Stuf" by Spangle, "Lovin" by Holly Carroll, "Major Funky" by Ulysses Crockett, "I Don't Know Yet" by Don Patterson, "People Wake Up Before It Is Too Late" by The Chances, "How Tough It Was" by Jackie Johnson's Backbeaters, "Tell It Like It Is" by Rita MacNeil, "Sound Of The Wind" by John Brown, "Superjock" by Reuben Bell, "Here Tis" by Spider Martin, "Do The Airplane" by Mel Production Band, and "Silver Dollar Lady" by International Boogie Band.

Honest Jons (UK), Late 20s. Used ... Out Of Stock
A fascinating collection of West African music recorded in England during the late 20s – material done for the Zonophone label as part of a big wave of colonial immigration to London at the time! The package is one of the deepest-digging we've seen so far on the Honest Jon's label – and the music, although quite old, is really incredible – done in a range of African styles and languages, and presented with surprising clarity, given the age of the originals. There's a feel here that's almost like ethnographic recordings done in the homelands many years later – and the package is supported by some wonderful notes that paint a vivid picture of the lives and struggles of African immigrants in the UK during the period. Titles include "Garse Yer Fido" by Oni Johnson, "Nitsi Koko Ko Ko" by Isaac Jackson, "Bukay" by John Mugat, "Asin Asin (part 2)" by Kumasi Trio, "Rue Bai Rue Bai" by James Tucker, "Obu Kofi" by Ben Simmons, "Abowe Dsane Nmaka Tso" by The Ga Quartet, and "Wasiu Dowu" by Nicholas De Heer.

Laurindo AlmeidaConcord Jazz Heritage Series ... CD
Concord, Late 70s/1980s. Used ... $3.99
A nice overview of the Concord Records work of guitarist Laurindo Almeida – a player who'd floundered a bit before coming to the label, but then hit a very welcome return to small combo jazz! The material here is quite different from some of the easy listening or bigger ensemble albums that Almeida cut in the 60s – and instead, most of the music here is in a small combo setting – played by Laurindo on acoustic guitar, in a mix of modes from bop, to bossa, plus a slight touch of classical too. Other players on the dates include Charlie Byrd on second guitar, Milt Holland on percussion, and Bob Magnusson on bass – and titles include "Invitation To Shango", "Danza Five", "You & I", "Dingue Le Bangue", "Liza", "Carioca", "Chopin A La Breve", "Jalousie", and "Adios".

AmericaHeritage – Home Recordings/Demos 1970 to 1973 ... CD
Omnivore, Early 70s. New Copy ... $15.99 16.98
A dream of a record if you love America as much as us – a set of rare early demo tracks that show the group's harmony charms in a wonderfully stripped-down mode! Most of the work here features acoustic guitar and just a bit of added instrumentation – yet the songs are maybe just as heavenly as the trio's famous studio sides produced by George Martin at the time – lean magic that completely reinvented the role of the harmony voice in rock music for the 70s! A few of these tracks were issued on CD in recent years, but lots of the work here is previously unissued – and together, the whole thing feels like this lost album from the years before their big label fame – the kind of indie roots the group never had, presented here with sound that's way more superb than you might expect from the "home recordings" in the title. Titles include "Goodbye", "Riverside", "Here", "James Holladay", "How Long", "Sea Of Destiny", "Rainy Day", "Satan", "Monster", "Man Of Pride", "Wind Wave", "Mitchum Junction", and "Ventura Highway".

Johnny CashSings The Songs That Made Him Famous ... CD
Sun/Varese, Late 50s. Used (reissue)... $8.99
Iconic early Cash at Sun Records – and while there is truth in the title, as it does indeed include a few of his trademak tunes, it'd be even more accurate to say it's the SOUND that made him famous – that perfect mix of his authoritative voice, unvarnished boom-chicka-boom backdrop from bassist Marshall Grant and guitarist Luther Perkins, and the production of Jack Clement and Sam Phillips. It's as classic as it gets! Includes "Ballad Of A Teenage Queen", "I Walk The Line", "Big River", "I Can't Help It", "You're The Nearest Thing To Heaven", "Don't Make Me Go", "Guess Things Happen That Way", "Next In Line" and more – 16 in all.

EL V & The GardenhouseEl Doctor/Tamarita (colored vinyl) ... 7-inch
Tropical Diaspora (Germany), 2018. New Copy (pic cover)... $12.99
"El Doctor" is a lively little number with a nice hint of revolution – performed here by a combo from Italy, but with a very South American vibe! The percussion is upbeat, the horns punch along with the groove, and the rolling lyrics are nice and compelling – and the flipside features "Tamarita", a tune with a bit more of a sing-song vibe! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Isis Giraldo Poetry ProjectPadre ... CD
Jazz The New Chapter (Japan), 2016. Used ... $12.99
A beautiful project in which singer Isis Giraldo works with poems penned by her father – Ruben Dario Giraldo – and transforms the words into these dark-tinged jazz tunes, with a quality that almost takes us back to some of the most experimental 70s work by singers like Sheila Jordan or Karin Krog! The approach here is a bit different, though – maybe even more focused on the voice, which sometimes includes contributions from other singers, joining in alongside Isis' lead – with instrumentation that includes trumpet, tenor, clarinet, cello, bass, and drums – plus piano from Giraldo. There's a vibrant sense of majesty that envelops the work as the album unfolds – and titles include "Tigre Y Paloma", "He Vivido", "Seforita", "Verde", "Trees", "Amigo", and "Ayer Y Hoy". CD

Goblin (as Il Reale Imperio Britannico)Perche Si Uccidono ... CD
Cinevox (Italy), 1976. New Copy ... $14.99
A nice lost score by the Italian group Goblin – working here under the "fake" British name of Il Reale Impero Britannica – and maybe sounding even groovier than on some of their other records of the 70s! The Goblin sound is still in place, but there's also maybe more ties to some of the other Italian cop/crime work of the period – with great basslines on a number of cuts, which ups the funk quotient more than usual – and lots more sweet keyboards with a jazzy vibe, and maybe less of the rock touches of other Goblin work – especially since there's none of the trademark Goblin fuzzy guitar riffs on the record! Titles include the funky "Kalu", plus "Epopea", "Edda", "My Damned Shit", "Block", "Dodici E Un Quarto", and "Apoltheke". Nice stuff – and with some nice cop/crime moments! CD

Herbie HancockEmpyrean Isles (Jazz Heritage) ... CD
Jazz Heritage, 1964. Used ... $2.99
A lyrical masterpiece from the young Herbie Hancock – and a record that's really special for so many different reasons! First, the songs are really long and open – even more so than some of Hancock's other work – with a quality that's balanced between his soul jazz roots, and some of the freer ideas he was exploring with key counterparts of the time! Next, the group features a quartet with Freddie Hubbard on cornet – an instrument he didn't play that often, but which creates a really special sound here – one that's cool and compressed, but still has a sharp bite, too – especially over the inventive rhythms laid down by Ron Carter on bass and Anthony Williams on drums. All players are capable of going out – and have strong "new thing" cred by this point – but they keep it inside all the way through, but with a balanced sense of darkness that's really beautiful. The album features Hancock's classic (and oft-sampled) version of "Cantaloupe Island" – plus "One Finger Snap", "Olioqui Valley", and "The Egg". CD

Waylon JenningsHonky Tonk Heroes ... LP
Fat Possum, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $12.99 15.99
Textbook 70s country badassery from Waylon Jennings! This is one of the most defining moments of the outlaw era, the record which pretty much drew a line in the sand between Waylon Jennings and the Nashville establishment. Billy Joe Shaver's pen and Waylon's authoritative voice marks this as one the strongest country albums of the era, if not ever, both in song quality and pure backbone. Greatness! Includes the barnstorming title track, "Old Five And Dimer (Like Me)", "Omaha", "You Asked Me To", "Ride Me Down Easy", "Black Rose", "We Had it All", and more. LP, Vinyl record album

Kazimierz JonkiszTiri Taka ... LP
Polskie Nagrania (Poland), 1980. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
Soulful fusion from Poland – a group led by drummer Kazimierz Jonkisz, and featuring piano, soprano sax, bass, and a bit of electric violin! The groove is a bit in the Michal Urbaniak mode – although not as way out, with a good focus on ensemble modes on the heads of each tune – similar to American soulful fusion of the time – before the band then makes their way through some longer solo moments. The feel is often surprisingly rich and full – a bit like some of the best R&B-tinged fusion coming out of the US in the mid to late 70s – especially on the Columbia label – and the players here are all top-shelf, and really open up as the tunes roll on. There's none of the too-jamming modes that can sometimes show up in more rock-based fusion records from the Eastern scene – and instead, there's a sensitivity here that shows up even on the more upbeat numbers. Titles include "We're All Waiting", "Tiritaka", "For Slawosz", "Joewer", and "For Marc". LP, Vinyl record album

Carmen McRaeAny Old Time (Jazz Heritage pressing) ... CD
Denon/Jazz Heritage, 1986. Used ... $6.99
A warm later set from Carmen McRae – recorded with great small combo jazz backing that features tenor sax work from Clifford Jordan! The album's a real back-to-basics one for McRae – and gets away from crossover modes used in the 60s and 70s, taking Carmen back to the more jazz-based sound of her earliest records – but going even one further by bringing in Jordan, since Carmen mostly started out with straight trio backing. Other players include Eric Gunnison on piano and John Collins on guitar – and the tunes themselves are mostly standards, sung with impeccable phrasing. Titles include "Tulip Or Turnip", "Body & Soul", "I Hear Music", "This Is Always", "It Could Happen To You", "Old Devil Moon", and "Have You Met Miss Jones". CD

✨✧ Anthony Newley/Peter Sellers/Mandy Rice-Davies/MisFool Britannia/Scandal/Stop The World I Want To Off ... CD
El (UK), Early 60s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $6.99 13.99
A great look at the wit of England in the years before the rise of Monty Python – a special early 60s time when new ways of lampooning society were really coming into play, sometimes finding their only outlet on the musical stage! As part of that legacy, the set features two important early Anthony Newley productions – the international hit Stop The World I Want To Get Off, and the even more striking Fool Britannia – a parody of the Profuma affair, with a cast that includes Newley, Peter Sellers, and Joan Collins. The 2CD collection also adds in some Profumo-related recordings, to provide context – as well as some great selections from That Was The Week That Was, a show headed by David Frost – and a full run of other late 50s/early 60s songs from the soundtrack to the film Scandal – which dealt with the story. There's way too much to list here – the collection has a whopping 52 tracks in all – and the music provides a great portrait of early 60s UK – with selections that include "You've Got What It Takes" and "A Good Man Is Hard To Find" by Mandy Rice-Davies, "Christine" and "SEX" by Miss X, "Couple" by Eleanor Bron & John Fortune, "Running Bear" by Johnny Preston, "Apache" by The Shadows, "If You're Game Baby" and "Well I Must Admit Sir" by That Was The Week That Was, the full soundtracks to Fool Britannia and Stop The World – plus more titles too!
