✨✧ Skeeter DavisLet Me Get Close To You (with bonus tracks) ... CD
RCA/Playback (Australia), 1964. New Copy ... $16.99 19.99
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 a massive 13 bonus tracks – including "Sunglasses", "Don't Let Me Stand In Your Way", "I'm Saving My Love", "The End Of The World", "It Was Only A Heart", "On And On And On", "The Face Of A Clown", and "How Much Can A Lonely Heart Stand".

✨✧ 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 ... 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

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
