Singers Unlimited & Art Van DammeInvitation ... CD
MPS/Edel (Germany), 1973. New Copy ... $15.99
One of the coolest albums ever cut by the Singers Unlimited – thanks to great instrumentation from the mighty Art Van Damme! Art plays accordion – in a way that works perfectly with the banks of sound and sweetness we love from the group – an instrument whose own breathy tones turns out to be a perfect accompaniment for their harmonies, especially in the way it sets a very melancholy mood! Other instrumentation is great too – relatively spare use of the guitar of Sigi Schwab, plus vibes from Heribert Thusek, bass from Eberhard Weber, and drums from Charly Antolini – and titles include a really sublime version of Antonio Carlos Jobim's "Wave", plus "Violets For Your Furs", "Cherry", "Spring Is Here", "Ecstasy", "We Could Be Flying", and "Invitation".

Roger Nichols & The Small Circle Of FriendsFull Circle (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Now Sounds (UK), 2007. New Copy ... $8.99
A wonderful return to form for Roger Nichols & The Small Circle Of Friends – working here in the same sublime space they hit on their one and only album for A&M Records in the 60s! The style here is somewhat more modern – but still mostly 70s-styled, as opposed to contemporary – and in a way, Nichols and the group hit some of the warmer modes that groups like Free Design or Singers Unlimited were using at the start of the 70s. All tunes are originals by Roger, most penned with his early songwriting partner Paul Williams – and the vocals by Nichols, Murray MacLeod, and Melinda MacLeod are presented with some great light instrumentation – mostly keyboards, guitar, and bass from Roger himself. We're surprised at how much we like this one – and instead of thinking of it as an album recorded 40 years after the group's debut, we'd rather like to think of it as a "lost" session from the early 70s – because that's the way it sounds overall! Titles include "The Winner's Theme", "I Kept On Loving You", "Let Me Be The One", "Out In The Country", "You're Foolin Nobody", "Always You", "I'm Comin To The Best Part Of My Life", "Look Around", "I'm Gonna Find Her", "Talk It Over In The Morning", and "Watching You". CD also fetaures 5 bonus tracks too – unreleased demo versions of tracks on the album! CD

Rune OfwermanCool – Piano With Voices ... LP
Argo, Early 60s. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
A strange one for Argo, and certainly not in keeping with their usual soul jazz roster of recordings – but also a cool moody session recorded in Scandinavia, and which features the icy piano of Rune Ofwerman, backed by a chorus of voices, for a floating dreamy sound that slightly hints at the Singers Unlimited, and other European vocal groups from the 60s. Titles include "Mellow Cool", "Bossa Nova Sueca", "Ortego Bossa Nova", and "M-83". LP, Vinyl record album
(Grey label Argo pressing. Cover has a cutout hole.)

✨✧ Free DesignKites Are Fun ... LP
Project 3, 1967. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Hard to find vinyl pressing of the first Free Design album, recorded in 1967 for Project 3 records! The album is a swirling mix of vocal harmonies and cute little tuneful songs, sung by the group in a style that's sort of a mix between the Hi-Los and The Singers Unlimited. Includes the tracks "A Man & A Woman", "Michelle", "Don't Turn Away", "My Brother Woody", and "Make The Madness Stop". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing.)

✨✧ Anita KerrAll You Need Is Love (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Warner (Japan), 1967. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
All you need is love – that, and some great vocals and backings as well! Anita Kerr really gets groovy on this little set – taking the famous sound of her harmony quartet into some great late 60s territory – a range of pop tunes hinted at by the Beatles reference on the cover – all arranged and conducted by Anita herself, and produced with some great Sunshine Pop touches! The mixed male/female sound of the quartet is a nice precursor to the 70s recordings by Singers Unlimited – sweet and smooth, but bumped along by a groove on most of these tracks – and titles include "Autumn Afternoon", "No Salt On Her Tail", "Holiday", "A Natural Woman", "Never My Love", "I Make A Fool Of Myself", and "The Last Waltz". CD features bonus tracks – "The Smile You Save For Strangers", "I Can't Help Remembering You", and "For Bert". CD

✨✧ Anita KerrSounds (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Warner (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Quite possibly the grooviest album ever from Anita Kerr – a set that brings the sweet sound of her vocal quartet into play with some of the best elements of the Sunshine Pop generation! The orchestrations, arrangements, and tunes here are all a lot hipper than before – not just simple pop tunes, given the Kerr touch – but a completely remade approach to the music, with deep consideration for all elements, and where they might be used the best! There's a really heavenly quality to the entire set – a sound that's somewhere between early Association and the best Singers Unlimited work at MPS – and along with a few well-chosen tunes by other writers, Anita even includes a few self-penned gems of her own. Titles include "I'm Falling In Love Again", "I Would Love You", "The Two Of Us", "They Always Ask Me", "Wine In The Wind", "Happiness Is", and "Today Is". CD features three bonus tracks – "One Day", "All This", and "One Up On Me". CD
