Rod McKuenBoy Named Charlie Brown ... LP
Stanyan, 1970. Very Good- ... $9.99
A surprisingly weird and wonderful little record – one that features Rod McKuen's music for the film A Boy Named Charlie Brown, plus a few other tracks as well – all done in that slightly-broken style of Rod's we love so much! The aging poet McKuen might have seemed a strange choice to use for any sort of Peanuts film, but his raspy take on the title tune is really wonderful – almost a version of Charlie Brown that's an older alcoholic who's smoked most of his life – but still trying to sound slightly upbeat! This approach also follows on some of Rod's vocal work on a few tunes for the film Natalie with Henry Mancini – and even his instrumental work here is nice, with kind of a blue-tinged take on the territory of Vince Guaraldi. Titles include vocal numbers "Failure Face", "We", "Champion Charlie Brown", "A Boy Named Charlie Brown", and "Natalie" – plus instrumental tracks "Something For Snoopy", "I'll Catch The Sun", "Jean", and "Joanna" – as well as instrumentals of a few Charlie Brown tracks too.

Nick WaterhouseNever Twice (180 gram pressing – with download) ... LP
Innovative Leisure, 2016. New Copy ... $16.99 19.98
Nick Waterhouse keeps winning us over again and again with his music – which seems to get better and better with each new release! This album might be Nick's most compelling so far – a nicely gritty set that almost takes us back to that hip London stretch in the 60s, when British singers were effortlessly blending together American styles from soul, jazz, and blues – into a hip-stepping mode that was completely outta sight! Not that Nick's a retro artist trying for an old-styled sound – just that he's one of the few in decades who can get such a clear, focused groove out of all the right elements – and all without making it sound forced at all. A record you can easily file next to classics by Bobby Scott, George Fame, and Zoot Money – with titles that include "Stanyan Street", "The Old Place", "Katchi", "Tracy", "LA Turnaround", "It's Time", and "I Had Some Money".
