Skeeter DavisLet Me Get Close To You (with bonus tracks) ... CD
RCA/Playback (Australia), 1964. New Copy ... About May 10, 2017
A cool country classic from Skeeter Davis – one of our favorite Nashville talents of the 60s! Skeeter's got a voice that's heartbreakingly sweet on this set – a style that's partially country, partially pop – and which is produced to perfection by Chet Atkins with some nicely bubbling touches in the instrumentation. That great 60s RCA sound is really in place here – isolated piano tinkling nicely behind the vocals, and some slightly sweeter strings used in very spare, compressed ways – plus a few rhythms that kick things up a bit, and push Skeeter's music a bit more towards other non-country girl singers of the time. Titles include "Didn't I", "Gonna Get Along Without You Now", "Ask Me", "Easy To Love", "Ladder Of Success", and "Let Me Get Close To You". CD features 3 bonus tracks – including "It Was Only A Heart", "How Much Can A Lonely Heart Stand", and "The Face Of A Clown". CD

✨✧ Bobby Bare with Skeeter Davis, Liz Anderson, & NorTunes For Two/The Game Of Triangles/Your Husband My Wife (with bonus tracks) ... CD
RCA/Morello (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A trio of albums that pair RCA country star Bobby Bare with some of the label's female singers – all brought together with bonus tracks too! Tunes For Two is one of the magical pairings of Bobby Bare and Skeeter Davis – both rising stars in the RCA country lineup of the 60s – each with their own sort of special sound! Skeeter's got a heartbreaking mode that's kind of post-Patsy Cline – perfect for the slower, blue-tinged tracks on the set – and a nice contrast with the more natural approach of Bobby – who's always got his emotions handy, but also often with a wry eye that lets him put things in perspective. The pair duet directly on most numbers – instead of singing back and forth – and titles include "In The Misty Moonlight", "Dear John Letter", "Too Used To Being With You", "True Love", "Let It Be Me", and "We Must Have Been Out Of Our Minds". Game Of Triangles is a compelling take on the country duo mode of the 60s – an album that features some tracks that have all three singers working together – beautiful "love triangle" numbers – then more tracks that feature each singer on their own! The triangle numbers are especially compelling – and include "One Among The Three Of Us", "Bye Bye Love", "Three Mixed Up Hearts", "Which One Is To Blame", and "The Game Of Triangles" – a really fresh version of country heartbreak modes. Other cuts are nice, too – and include Bobby Bare singing "Homesick" and "Guess I'll Move On Down The Line", Liz Anderson singing "The Wife Of The Party" and "Fairytale", and Norma Jean singing "Pursuing Happiness" and "Don't Let That Doorknob Hit You". Last up is Your Husband My Wife – a set that has the duo of Bare and Davis really maturing nicely – hitting modes that are a lot more country than some of Skeeter's early pop material, with beautiful back/forth vocals that open up the well-penned tunes of heartbreak and the struggles of love to survive. Titles include "Before The Sunrise", "Let's Make Love Not War", "There Never Was A Time", "A Truer Love You'll Never Find", and the great "Your Husband My Wife". CD features three more bonus tracks – "Vegas" by Bare with Jeannie Bare, "No Memories Hangin Round" by Bare with Rosanne Cash, and "It's A Dirty Job" by Bare with Lacy J Dalton. CD

VariousGoffin & King – A Gerry Goffin & Carole King Song Collection 1961 to 1967 ... CD
Ace (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... $10.99 18.99
The full scope of the mighty songwriting talents of Carole King and Gerry Goffin – a much-chronicled 60s team who had plenty of troubles of their own, but who brought some really amazing music to the world at the time! The package features songs in a variety of genres – soul, pop, rock, country, and more – including some appearing here on CD for the first time ever, and plenty more that aren't just the obvious Goffin/King hits! The CD features a huge booklet – nearly 25 pages in all – with track-by-track notes on the tunes, as well as on the songwriting team – and as with some of Ace's other explorations into 60s pop powerhouses, the single disc package is almost more informative and thorough than some bigger box sets. Titles include "He's In Town" by The Tokens, "Don't Ever Change" by The Crickets, "The First & The Last" by The Chiffons, "Brand New Man" by Richard Popcorn Wylie, "Let Me Get Close To You" by Skeeter Davis, "The Idol" by Bobby Vee, "I Can't Make It Alone" by PJ Proby, "Just A Little Girl" by Donna Loren, "I Can't Hear You" by Betty Everett, "I Just Can't Say Goodbye" by Bobby Rydell, "I Didn't Have Any Summer Romance" by The Satisfactions, "Yours Until Tomorrow" by Dee Dee Warwick, "So Much Love" by Ben E King, and "A Natural Woman" by Aretha Franklin.

VariousOn Broadway – The Songs Of Barry Mann & Cynthia Weil ... CD
Playback (Australia), 1960s. New Copy ... $16.99 19.99
A totally wonderful collection of work from the legendary songwriting team of Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil – and one that goes way past some of the too-familiar hits we've heard from the duo over the years! Instead, this one seems to focus on the less obvious – tunes that might be famous, but recorded by some different artists than the hit versions – or some more unusual songs from Mann and Weil, served up with the kind of readings that should have made them huge! Most work is American, but there's also some tracks from overseas – pulled together from a big range of indie labels in the 60s, with a few cuts from later years too. Titles include "This Is A Love Song" by BJ Thomas, "Bless You" by Wildfire, "Angelica" by Roy Hamilton, "You've Lost That Lovin Feeling" by Dionne Warwick, "It's A Happening World" by The Executives, "Talk To Me Baby" by Barry Mann, "Come On Over To My Place" by Dewey Edwards, "Come Home Baby" by Terry Knight, "I Don't Want To Love You" by Skeeter Davis, "Not You" by Walter Jackson, "See That Boy" by Paris Sisters, "Till We Kissed" by Ray Columbus & The Invaders, "Baby Baby" by Julie Grant, "The Gospel Truth" by The Shirelles, "The Shape Of Things To Come" by The Graduates, "Hungry" by The 5AM Event, and "Glitter & Gold" by Danny & Diego. Great notes – and an excellent package overall! CD

✨✧ VariousOut Of Left Field – Where Soul Meets Country ... CD
Kent/Ace (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Not a set of country-styled soul music – as you might guess from the title – and instead a package that shows the undeniable influence that soul music songs had on the sound of country music in the 60s and 70s! The flipside of the scene has been well-documented on collections of western-tinged soul music we've stocked in the past – but this great set is the first we've ever heard to show the way that country singers were able to easily pick up hit soul songs of the time, then recraft them completely with a whole new sort of style! The blue-tinged message of these tunes is universal – and has equally great power in the hands of these artists you might not identify with the tracks, but who really get their vibe, and go out of their way to rework the lyrics with different arrangements that help bring the music to a whole new audience. Titles include "Who's Making Love" by Daaron Lee, "He Made A Woman Out Of Me" by Jeanne C Riley, "Baby I'm Yours" by Tanya Tucker, "Only The Strong Survive" by Skeeter Davis, "I've Been Loving You Too Long" by Anita Carter, "You Don't Miss Your Water" by OB McClinton, "He Will Break Your Heart" by David Allen Coe, "Look At Them Beans" by Johnny Cash, "Pickin Wild Mountain Berries" by Loretta Lynn & Conway Twitty, "Dark End Of The Street" by The Kendalls, and "Scratch My Back" by Razzy Bailey.
