Serge GainsbourgSerge Gainsbourg Live – Casino De Paris 1985 ... CD
Universal (France), 1985. New Copy 2 CDs ... $19.99
A previously-unreleased live performance from Serge Gainsbourg – recorded in the mid 80s, and presented here in a nicely expanded package! Serge is right at his Love On The Beat period here – working with some groovy arrangements that could cross over a bit to the dancefloor, and which are performed here by a tight stage combo with a mix of electric elements and jazzy touches – all of which leave plenty of room for the mighty Gainsbourg to stand firmly out front. The amazing thing is that, even in such a live setting, Serge manages to sing with that often-whispered style that's so great – that up-close approach that can really underscore the sex and sleaze in his music. The set includes versions of some Gainsbourg classics, mixed with later numbers – and titles include "Marilou Sous La Niege", "Harley David Son Of A Bitch", "La Javanaise", "Initials BB", "Sorry Angel", "Nazi Rock", "Bonnie & Clyde", "Lola Rastaquoere", "I'm The Boy", "Lemon Incest", "No Comment", and "Micky Maousse".

VariousDoes Anybody Know I'm Here? – Vietnam Through The Eyes Of Black America 1962 to 1972 ... CD
Kent (UK), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
A great follow-up to the Soldier's Sad Story collection on Kent – and like that one, a mindblowing collection of soul music from the Vietnam era! The CD is like finding a few lost pages in the history books on the war – as it represents a lesser-heard voice from the time, and a really unusual take on the conflict that strained America in the 60s and the 70s. While some of the songs are quite explicit in their meaning, the more unusual thing about the collection is the way that many of the tunes present their opinions in a more submerged way – as general themes of loss, disenfranchisement, and longing that take on whole new meaning when brought together in a collection like this. The quality of the set is really great, with full notes on the material to document their selection and connection – and the CD features a total of 23 tracks that include "Don't Cry My Soldier Boy" by Thelma Houston, "Am I Ever Gonna See My Baby Again" by The Sweet Inspirations, "I Should Be Proud" by Martha Reeves & The Vandellas, "Vaya Con Dios/Fellows In Vietnam" by Inez & Charlie Foxx, "Open Letter To The President" by Roy C, "Welcome The Boys Back Home" by Bill Moss & The Celestials, "War" by The Temptations, "Soldier's Goodbye" by William Bell, "A Soldier's Prayer 1967" by Archie Bell & The Drells, "Please Uncle Sam" by The Charmels, "Please Mr President" by King Solomon, "Does Anybody Know I'm Here" by The Dells, and "A Letter From My Son" by Melverine Thomas.

Carol AndersonSad Girl – The Legacy Of Detroit's Lost Soul Sister ... CD
Grapevine (UK), 1970s. New Copy ... $13.99 19.99
The complete recordings of a wonderful soul singer who never fully got her due – Detroit diva Carol Anderson, best known for a few tracks that broke big on the UK Northern scene – but finally presented here with the full scope of her work in one set! Carol had a great approach that was very much in keeping with changes in the Detroit sound of the 70s – vocals that often shared a sense of personal, heartfelt delivery with southern soul of the period – but a tighter, more swinging approach to instrumentation that was still keeping up the Detroit groove of earlier years. The tunes here nicely skirt a distance between Memphis and Motortown – delivered with a rich, expansive heart that should have made Carol a bigger singer than she was a the time. A few of the tracks on the set are nice dancefloor groovers – both in an older style of Northern soul, and in a late 70s/early 80s boogie-styled groove – and as usual, the folks at Grapevine have done a tremendous job with the notes! CD features every single track ever recorded by Carol – 17 titles that include "Sad Girl", "You Boy", "We've Got Enough", "You've Got It Coming", "Party People", "Holding On", "Taking My Mind Off Love", "You Want It", "Ain't Giving Up", "Tomorrow Is Not A Promise", "Come On Over Tonight", and "Master Plan".

Paul AnkaWalk A Fine Line ... CD
Sony (Japan), 1983. New Copy ... $13.99
Paul Anka may be hiding his balding pate under a hat on the cover, but the album's got the singer being very open with his style – and hitting a great AOR mode for the 80s! Anka may have hit a few clunky spots in the 70s – but he's maturing nicely on this overlooked album from the following decade – working a gentle current of soul with his vocals, amidst arrangements from David Foster, Michael McDonald, and producer Denny Diante – with a smooth vibe that's never trying too hard for any sort of easy crossover fame. Most cuts are originals by Anka – showing his songwriting skills in fine form – and titles include "Second Chance", "Golden Boy", "Gimme The Word", "This Is The First Time", "No Way Out", and "Darlin Darlin". CD
(Part of the great AOR City series from Japan!)

Dave & Toni ArthurMorning Stands On Tiptoe ... CD
Transatlantic/Cherry Tree (UK), 1967. New Copy ... $3.99 13.99
Duo material from the late 60s British folk revival – nice stuff from Dave & Toni Arthur – resonating versions of traditional folk numbers – many with just voices and no instrumental accompaniment! It's pretty endearing stuff, the kind of thing you wish pubs full of people would sing, and their given that kind of reverence here by Dave & Toni. Includes "A Maiden Came From London Town", "Morning Stands On Tip Toe", "Padstow Drinking Song", "The Guilty Sea Captain", "Green Grass", "The Barley Grain Song", "Green Groom", "Bendigo Champion Of England" and more. Includes a couple bonus tracks, pop tunes recorded as The Strollers: "The Cuckoo" and "A Rich And Rambling Boy". CD

Barclay James HarvestEveryone Is Everybody Else (2CD/DVD set – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Polydor/Esoteric (UK), 1974. New Copy 2CD/DVD ... $26.99
A nice lean set from Barclay James Harvest – a record that gets more to the core of their sound after the larger arrangements of some of their albums for Harvest Records – in a way that also seems to bring out more of an edge in their songwriting, too! The shift is somewhat subtle, but effective – as the quartet manage to find ways to make simple guitar and keyboard lines come across with this flowing vibe that often makes the sum sound way more than its parts – especially when set to the inventive themes covered by some of the album's lyrical topics! The drums are great, too – seemingly stronger than before – and titles include "Negative Earth", "Paper Wings", "The Great 1974 Mining Disaster", "Mill Boys", "Poor Boy Blues", and "Child Of The Universe". 3CD set is filled with goodies – the original stereo mix of the album, a second new stereo mix, and a 5.1 surround mix – plus bonus tracks that include "Child Of The Universe (US single version)", "Maestoso", "Negative Earth (original mix)", and "The Great 1974 Mining Disaster (original mix)". Comes with a booklet and poster, too! CD

Beach BoysBeach Boys' Party!/Stack O Tracks ... CD
Capitol, Mid 60s. Used ... $6.99
2 lesser-known, but still-great albums by the Beach Boys – even if they are a bit weird! Party features the group having a good time, working live through versions of rock and R&B tunes like "Hully Gully", "Tell Me Why", "Pap-oom-mow-wow", "Moutain Of Love", "Alley Oop", and their famous version of "Barbara Ann". Stack O Tracks is like a Karaoke album, in that it's got the instrumental versions of Beach Boys classics – like "You're So Good To Me", "Let Him Run Wild", "Sloop John B", "In My Room", "Do It Again", and "God Only Knows". Sing along – and have your friends join in – or think of it as an instrumental peek at the genius of Brian Wilson. Contains 3 bonus tracks, too! CD

Beach BoysPet Sounds – 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition (4CDs/Blu-ray/book) ... CD
Capitol, 1966. New Copy 4CD & Blu-ray ... $72.99 79.99
One of the greatest records of all time – and don't you forget it! Despite the countless lines of type that have been written about this record, nothing does it full justice like an all-through listen – something we're reminded of every time we put this one on the turntable, which is a heck of a lot over the years! Brian Wilson busted his ass making this little gem – and the rest of the world, and the band, were never the same again – awash in harmonies that most other groups tried to match, set to themes of young loss, longing, and frustration that really mark an emotional development – not just in the Beach Boys, but in pop music in general. And although some of the tracks are ones you've heard a million times on oldies stations, they somehow resonate together much more strongly here – taking on new meaning as the smaller elements of each song come into constellation with each other – creating a complicated tapestry of feelings set to near-godlike orchestrations. Titles include "God Only Knows", "Caroline No", "Pet Sounds", "I Just Wasn't Made for These Times", "Wouldn't It Be Nice", and "You Still Believe In Me". Amazing book-style version – comes in a hardcover book, with 48 pages of notes and photos! Includes 4CDs – CD1 features the full mono and stereo mixes of the album, plus 2 promo spots for "Caroline No", unused background vocals for "Don't Talk", and the track "Hang On To Your Ego". CD2 features 27 tracks from the Pet Sound Sessions. CD3 features 8 more Sessions tracks – and 16 more Alternate Versions – different mixes and speeds of tracks on the album. CD4 features 11 unreleased live versions of songs from the album – recorded from the late 60s through the early 80s – plus 11 more instrumental versions of the songs – and "Good Vibrations (master track with partial vocal). Blu-Ray disc features 5.1 Surround Sound mono, stereo, and stereo instrumental versions – plus additonal album material in 5.1 Surround and stereo. CD

Beach BoysToday/Summer Days & Summer Nights ... CD
Capitol, Mid 60s. Used ... $3.99
Excellent pre-Pet Sounds work by The Beach Boys! Today is an overlooked gem in the Beach Boys' catalog – mostly because it features some bigger pop singles ("Do You Wanna Dance", "Help Me Baby"). However, there's also some incredible LP tracks with a very Pet Sounds-ish kind of approach to them – tracks like "Don't Hurt My Little Sister", "Please Let Me Wonder", "She Knows Me Too Well", and "In The Back Of My Mind", all of which are essential Beach Boys listening. There's a few other silly tracks on the record, though – as there are on the Summer Days LP – but that one also features a few nice moments, like "You're So Good To Me" and "Let Him Run Wild", both excellent Brian Wilson tunes! Plus, this CD also features 5 bonus tracks – making it a steal of a deal, with 29 cuts in all! CD

Bobby BoydBobby Boyd (1976) ... CD
Vadim (France), 1976. New Copy ... $9.99
The rare second album from Bobby Boyd – a set that's even more soulful than his first, and which is filled with funky gems! Boyd's vocals are wonderful – tight, but with an earnest quality that almost pushes him more towards a Bill Withers vibe than some of the other funky singers of the time – a great change next to the tight combo instrumentation of the record. Tunes are almost all upbeat and funky – and the mixture of Boyd's warmth with the sharp grooves really makes for a rich sound overall – a record that should have, could have been huge – were it issued at the time – but which is finally seeing the light of day now, in this well-done full length production from Vadim! Titles include "Ain't What You Know", "Why Are You Cryin", "Good Woman", "Girl I Can Feel Ya", "On This Side Of Town", and "Let Bygones By Bygones" – plus the instrumental "The Happy Hooker", produced by Harvey Fuqua, and which seems to actually be the Nite Liters' song/version, oddly tucked into this album!

David Byrne/Fatboy Slim & OthersHere Lies Love – A Song Cyle About Imelda Marcos & Estrella Cumpas (2CD set) ... CD
Nonesuch, 2010. Used 2CD ... $6.99
Here Lies Love and here lies one of the most ambitious projects in the careers of it's authors, the restless creative spirit that is David Byrne and the nearly as adventurous Fatboy Slim! The album is a 2 disc song cycle about former First Lady Of The Philippines Imelda Marcos and her childhood servant Estrella Cumpas – featuring a largely female roster of guest lead vocalists including Florence Welsh, Candie Payne & St Vincent, Sharon Jones, Santigold, Sia, Alice Russell and more – plus some dudes, including Byrne himself and Steve Earle. You can certainly hear Byrne in composition and lyricism, with global pop instrumentation and rhythms, plus big and languorous choruses, while the colorful and clubby thump underlying it most likely comes courtesy Fatboy Slim. The songs are quite good, and there's a grand sweep to the whole thing that we miss in most modern avant pop! Titles include "Here Lies Love" with Florence Weelsh, "A Perfect Hand" with Steve Earle", "Dancing Together" with Sharon Jones, "Please Don't" with Santigold, "Men Will Do Anything" with Alice Russell, "American Troglodyte" sung by Byrne and many more.

Larry CoryellBarefoot Boy ... CD
Flying Dutchman/BGP (UK), 1972. New Copy ... $11.99
One of Larry Coryell's greatest albums ever! Barefoot Boy is a much more expansive session than some of Coryell's others, fueled in part by the spiritual intensity of the Impulse Records generation. It's got a momentum that's pretty darn exciting throughout – but the compositions are nice and long, which gives the players plenty of space to explore. Personnel includes Steve Marcus on tenor and soprano sax, Mike Mandel on piano, Roy Haynes on drums, and Larry Killian on congas – working with Coryell on long trippy tracks that remind us a bit of 60s work by Chico Hamilton, Charles Lloyd, and Gabor Szabo. Titles include "Call To The Higher Consciousness", "The Great Escape", and "Gypsy Queen". CD

Arthur Big Boy CrudupSunny Road ... CD
Delmark, 1969. Used ... $9.99
A great later set from Arthur Crudup – and one that's still got the powerful vibe of his "That's All Right" classic! Those Crudup vocals come through with an incredible punch – a built-in vibrato that really matches his guitar work on the record (amplified through the same Leslie speaker used by Buddy Guy on another Delmark record from the same time! The Leslie creates a cool Hammond-like quality to the guitar, which really sounds great with Arthur's vocals – and although the recording style is rootsy, the speaker still brings a pretty full feel to the set. Other players include Mark Thompson on bass and Willie Big Eye Smith on drums – and the set also features some guest guitar from Jimmy Dawkins and Mike Thompson. Titles include "All I Got Is Gone", "Trying To Take Me For A Ride", "Sunny Road", and "Please Don't Leave Me With The Blues" – and the CD also features some bonus studio chatter too! CD

Sarah DashClose Enough ... CD
Kirshner/Sony (Japan), 1981. New Copy ... $13.99
Warm soul with a bit of pop – very much the sound that Sarah Dash had delivered strongly on her previous albums, and still served up here without too many commercial trappings! The album's definitely hook-heavy, but not nearly as much chart soul as some of Sarah's contemporaries – and the vocals definitely live up to that legacy that Dash brought her records after earlier work in Labelle – a richer soul current that really holds the album together. While there's not really any standout hits on the record, the overall sound is tight and right enough to work on most numbers – on titles that include "City Boy", "Somebody's Angel", "Only You Can Fill The Need", "Leaving Again", "Close Enough", and "PS I Love You". CD

Walt DickersonSense Of Direction ... CD
Prestige/OJC, 1961. Used ... $29.99
A fantastic bit of work by one of the most unique players in jazz! Dickerson's got an amazing tone on the vibes, and he's working here with pianist Austin Crowe, who creates beautiful spiralling piano lines that ring out in glorious tones next to Dickerson's darker metallic ones. The album's comprised of almost all original material, and has a fresh sound that's very different from any other jazz vibes albums from the time (except for Dickerson's other LPs). Titles include "Ode To Boy", "The Good Earth", "Sense Of Direction", and "Why". Very nice! CD

Everly BrothersRoots ... CD
Warner, 1968. Used ... $16.99
Sublime country rock and superb vocals from the Everly Brothers – an album as close to our hearts as the much more hipster-celebrated work of the era by Gram Parsons, the Byrds and others! The Everlys grasped onto their significance throughout the 60s by hopping from trend to trend with little success – but they finally nailed it in 1968 with this effort. (Artistically, if not commercially.) The boys apply their staggering harmonies to country and country-ish material, adding their own unique spin to the tunes – and earnestly work in some montages of their family radio shows from the early 50s! It's easily their most endearing work of the 60s. Produced by Lenny Waronker with strings by Nick DeCaro. Includes wonderful versions of Jimmie Rodgers' "T For Texas", "Shady Grove", Randy Newman's "Illinois", Ray Price's "You Done Me Wrong", Merle Haggard's "Mama Tried" and "Sing Me Back Home", plus "Ventura Boulevard" and "Turn Around" written by Ron Elliot of Beau Brummels.

Gianni FerrioMassacro Al Grande Canyon ... CD
CAM/GDM (Italy), 1964. Used ... $14.99
A driving orchestral score from maestro Gianni Ferrio – quite a bit different than some of his later work, and a much more dark-tinged soundtrack for this obscure western that starred Robert Mitchum's son! The style's almost more 50s American than the usual spaghetti western work of the period – quite tense at times, and with nice use of horns – all compressed with a good sense of force, and a subtle element of drama. Sparer guitar lines ring out on a few numbers, but never in ways that are as conventionally "western" as you might expect – and the leadoff track "Cowboy" features vocals from Read Dana. CD features the full album plus 12 more bonus tracks – and titles include "Nancy's Theme", "Wess", "Pascoli Rossi", "La Valle", "Il Tradimento", "Cosi Doveva Finire", and "Morte Dello Sceriffo". CD

Ella FitzgeraldTwelve Nights In Hollywood (4CD set) ... CD
Verve/Hip-O Select, 1961/1962. Used 4 CDs ... $49.99
Massive music from Ella Fitzgerald – 4CDs worth of sublime small group recordings – all of them live, and all of them previously unissued! The set follows the same format of the Verve Ella In Hollywood album – recorded in a small club setting, with combo backing that really lets Fitzgerald open up and swing – inflecting the tunes with the kind of warmth and spontaneity that she brought to her famous live performances of the time – which were almost always more compelling than her studio sides, no matter how great those were too! The first 3CDs feature material from two weeks' worth of recording in May of 1961 – with backing from Jim Hall on guitar, Lou Levy on piano, Wilfred Middlebrooks on bass, and Gus Johnson on drums – and CD four features Ella returning to Hollywood for two more nights in 1962, with trio backing from Paul Smith on piano, Middlebrooks on bass, and Stan Levey on drums. There's a massive 77 tracks in all – handsomely package in a hardcover 7" square book – which also features beautiful color pages inside, lots of notes on the music, and design that's every bit as groovy as the old albums on Verve. Titles include "Joe Williams' Blues", "It's De-Lovely", "Lorelei", "I Can't Get Started", "Round Midnight", "Perdido", "Little White Lies", "Lover Come Back To Me", "Across The Alley From The Alamo", "Love For Sale", "Exactly Like You", "Mack The Knife", "Teach Me Tonight", "My Kind Of Boy", "It Had To Be You", "Hard Hearted Hannah", "All Of Me", and "Too Darn Hot/Ella's Twist". And, in case you're wondering, there's almost no repetition in the set at all – all discreet, unique tunes – not just the sort of rehash you might get in other concert box sets of this nature! CD

Serge Gainsbourg & OthersIntegrale Serge Gainsbourg et Ses Interpretes Vol 1 – 1957 to 1960 (3CD set) ... CD
Fremeaux & Associates (France), Late 50s. New Copy 3 CDs ... $16.99 29.99
A massive document of the early years of the great Serge Gainsbourg – presented both in his original recordings, and performances of his songs by some of his hipper contemporaries! The set's about 50% Serge – with material from the early EP and single releases for Philips – and the rest is really great work that features unusual takes on Gainsbourg songs – some by instrumental groups, some by male or female singers, and some by vocal groups as well! It's great to hear all the different interpretations of Gainsbourg's tunes – and the way these singers take on his witty and sometimes controversial lyrics – set to instrumentation that includes lots of the jazz and Latin touches that Serge was using in his own work. Highlights include a number of jazz instrumentals by Alain Goraguer – and vocal titles that include "Ronsard 58" by Michelle Arnaud, "Le Poinconneur De Lilas" by Les Freres Jacques, Douze Belles Dans La Peau" by Simone Bartel, "Devense D'Afficher" by Pia Colombo, "Le Claquer De Doigts" by Trumpet Boy, "Douze Belles Dans La Peau" by Jacques Lasry, "Mambo Miam Miam" by Los Goragueros, "Mes Petites Odalisques" by Hugues Aufray, "La Recettte De L'Amour Fou" by Michele Arnaud, and "Ell N'Avait Que Dix Sept Ans" by Francis Lemarque with Serge Gainsbourg. 66 tracks in all – a great 3CD package – with 13 tracks on CD for the first time!

Bobby GoshSitting In The Quiet ... CD
Polydor/Universal (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... $14.99
Bobby Gosh may look like a good old boy on the cover here, but the set was recorded up at the Record Plant in New York – with a style that warms up his country roots in just the right way, and provides a bit of soulful backup vocals from a quartet that includes Patti Austin, Tasha Thomas, and Carl Hall! Yet despite the possible slick setting for the record, Gosh still comes across as very much his own man – proudly singing all the songs he penned himself, and not afraid to bring in a bit of broken-down emotion at all the right moments – a blue-tinged, burnt-out vibe that's especially powerful on some of the album's songs about love. Titles include his theme to the film "Bang The Drum Slowly", plus "Wednesday Afternoon Lady", "Have I Got A Song For You", "Harder Man", "Headin For New York City", and "Two For A Dollar". CD
