Oscar Peterson with Singers UnlimitedIn Tune ... CD
MPS (Germany), 1971. New Copy ... About November 15, 2017
One of the first albums cut by the fab Singers Unlimited – and the set that has them backed by the Oscar Peterson Trio! The Singers always mixed well with guest jazz talents – and the style of this albums gives their sweet harmonies a nice jazz-based groove and not too much cheese on the top – one of the leanest instrumental settings from their MPS era, and a nicely gliding groove that supports their voices wonderfully! The record includes great versions of "The Gentle Rain", "Once Upon A Summertime", "The Shadow Of Your Smile", and Thad Jones' great "A Child Is Born" – as well as a pretty crazy rendition of "Sesame Street"!

Singers UnlimitedComplete A Capella Sessions (A Capella Vols 1, 2, & 3) ... CD
MPS (Germany), 1971/1974/1979. Used 2CD ... $22.99
Amazing voices, coming together beautifully – with no other instrumentation for accompaniment! The sound of the Singers Unlimited was one of the brightest spots in the 70s catalog of MPS Records – a magical floating of male and female voices, all tied together with inventive arrangements by Gene Puerling (ex-HiLo's), and recorded perfectly in the best MPS mode – but on the three albums in this set, the group went even better – singing alone in the studio with only their own voices for rhythmic and melodic support – hitting notes, tones, and turns of phrases that are simply incredible. There's nothing hokey here, no sort of "retro acapella" mode – as in 70s doo wop revivals – and instead, the Singers carve out a whole new space of their own – a world of sound made only from heavenly voices, but in a way that's hip enough to match the best FM easy styles of their generation. And amidst the heaven, there's also a bit of hell – as the group often have a darker sensibility when presenting their music – a sense of depth that pushes them far away from kitsch! 2CD set features all the tracks from their 3 A Capella albums – a total of 33 tracks that includes "Both Sides Now", "Here There & Everywhere", "Lullaby", "Emily", "Clair", "Yesterday", "My Romance", "Girl Talk", "Sweet Lorraine", "One More Time Chick Corea", "Anything Goes", "Indian Summer", "All The Things You Are", "I Don't Know Where I Stand", "I Wish You Love", and "Lost In The Stars".

Singers Unlimited & Art Van DammeInvitation ... CD
MPS/Edel (Germany), 1973. New Copy ... $14.99
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".

✨✧ Singers UnlimitedMagic Voices – 7CD Box Set ... CD
MPS/Motor (Germany), Early 70s. Used 7CD ... Out Of Stock
For completists only! We always knew the folks at Motor Music were mad, but never this mad. Yet only beautiful madness could have led them to put out this insanely over-stuffed set of the complete works of one of the spookiest vocal groups of all time. Led by Gene Puerling of the Hi-Los, and recorded by the studio genius of MPS, the Singers Unlimited were a memorable group who managed to bring together jazz, easy listening, pop sounds, and even a bit of TV-jingle technique, in order to form a unique blend of harmony vocals that sounds like nothing else in the planet. Some of the stuff is cheesy, sure, but lots of it will blow your mind if you go in for the vocal group sound (as we do!) This set's got a massive 14 albums on 7 CDs, and it's packaged with a lavish booklet full of information, discographies, and essays on the band. We can't recommend this for everyone, but it's a stunning batch of material. And even though you do see some of their albums cheaply in the used record bins, this set contains a lot of stuff that you can never ever find. And as an additional bonus, the group is backed by folks like Clare Fischer, Art Van Damme, Oscar Peterson, Pat Williams, and others – and they also sing completely a cappella on 3 full albums! Wild.

✨✧ Singers UnlimitedA Capella 1 ... CD
MPS (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Heavenly work by one of the greatest vocal jazz combos ever! The Singers Unlimited cut many mighty albums for MPS with arrangements by some of the label's best bandleaders – but this one features them all alone, with only their voices to hold them up, which they do wonderfully, thanks to some crack arrangements by Gene Puerling of the group! The approach is natural – given that their vocal interplay was always the group's strongest calling card – and thanks to sublime MPS production, acapella vocals have never sounded so amazing. Titles include "The Fool On The Hill", "Emily", "Since You Asked", "Lullaby", and "London By Night". CD

✨✧ Singers UnlimitedFriends ... CD
MPS (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the grooviest albums cut by this legendary MPS vocal group – a set that has some very hip friends from the American scene – who blend perfectly with the soaring vocals that the quartet forged in Germany for the MPS label! The music features vocal arrangements from group leader Gene Puerling – very much in the best mode of their other harmonic gems – but it also gets some superb help on instrumentation from the wonderful Pat Williams – whose sense of lightness and sparkle is perfect for the voices! Pat's group here is loaded with great musicians – both Clare Fischer and Dave Grusin on keyboards, plus Tom Scott on reeds – each adding subtle but important energy to the backings – on tunes that include "Just Friends", "I'm Gonna Go Fishin", "When The Sun Comes Out", and "Eleanor Rigby".

✨✧ Clare Fischer & Salsa PicanteClare Fischer & Salsa Picante Present 2+2 ... LP
MPS/PA USA, 1980. Very Good+ ... $11.99
One of the grooviest albums that Clare Fischer ever recorded – featuring his electric Latin fusion group Salsa Picante, fronted by a two-man/two-woman vocal quartet who give the album kind of a "Brasil 66 meets Singers Unlimited" kind of sound! Fisher is on Fender Rhodes, and the group features Poncho Sanchez on conga, percussion by Alex Acuna, and some great reed work by Gary Foster. Tracks include "Du Du", "Legacy", "Guajira Pa La Jeva", "Funiquado", "Melancolico", and a great version of Fischer's excellent "Morning", one of his best and most-recorded compositions!

Free DesignKites Are Fun (50th anniversary colored vinyl pressing) (2017 Black Friday Release) ... LP
Light In The Attic, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... On November 24, 2017
The very first Free Design album, recorded in 1967 for Project 3 records – and darn tough to find in any format! 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 – but with a strangely hip and naive quality that's never been duplicated since! Includes the tracks "A Man & A Woman", "Michelle", "Don't Turn Away", "My Brother Woody", "Make The Madness Stop" and more!

✨✧ VariousGilles Peterson – Magic Peterson Sunshine ... LP
MPS (Germany), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
The magic sunshine here is all from the legendary catalog of MPS Records – unusually groovy jazz tracks from the 60s and 70s, all hand-picked by the equally legendary DJ Gilles Peterson! Peterson first turned many ears onto MPS back a few decades ago – with his excellent Talkin Jazz series – and this set follows strongly in that legacy, but also really shows both the deeper knowledge of the label's catalog we've acquired over the years, and the further development of Gilles' incredible ear for finding an unusual tune! The music here isn't just funky jazz, it's a huge range of sounds at once – some modal and spiritual elements, some global jazz experiments, a few vocal tracks, and even some very cool space-age styles – served up in a package that seems to make each new track burst forward with fresh feeling in the company of the others – that rare quality that can make a compilation like this so great. Titles include "Lillemor" by Francy Boland, "Out Of The Sorcellery" by Eddie Louiss, "Big P" by Modern Jazz Group Freiburg, "Stone Ground Seven" by Singers Unlimited, "Harp Revolution" by Johnny Teupen, "Service" by Orchester Roland Kovac, "Love Train" by Third Wave, "Dew" by Don Ellis, "Our Chant" by Gunter Hampel, "Denn Liebe Ist Stark Wie Der Tod" by Wolfgang Lauth, "Why & How" by Mark Murphy, and "Cancion Del Fuego Fatuo" by Pedro Iturralde with Paco DeLucia.
