✨✧ Lee WileyAs Time Goes By ... CD
RCA/Bluebird, 1956. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Dark and sophisticated vocals from Lee Wiley – cut with a slightly more traditional feel than some of her other albums from the time, partly because the backings are handled by Billy Butterfield! Yet despite a slightly traddish bent, there's also a slightly modern feel too – a nice melding of modes that's very much in the best 50s RCA spirit – fresh and sultry enough to live up to the streetwise image on the cover. Arrangements are by Al Cohn and Bill Finegan, and titles include "Blues In My Heart", "The Memphis Blues","A Hundred Years From Today", "Make Believe", "A Touch Of The Blues", and "I Don't Want To Walk Without You".

✨✧ VariousRockin South ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The south might have rocked in plenty of big scenes during the late 50s – Memphis, Houston, and some other big cities for music – but the work here might well beat them all, as it came from the smaller NRC group of labels, way down in Atlanta, Georgia! The music has plenty of fire and twang right from the start – not just hillbilly moving into rockabilly, but some full-formed early rockers that seem to take off from the best raw, raspy modes of the Louisiana and Tennessee studios of the time – but with maybe even a more striking sense of freedom overall! The CD's filled with gems we'd never have heard otherwise – all given the usual stunning Ace Records presentation – great sound and the kind of notes that always beat the bootlegs on the market. 30 tracks in all – including "The Cat" by Rod Willis, "Baby Please Don't Leave" by Sweetie Jones, "The Coo" by Wayne Cochran, "The Little Moon Men" by Lee George, "Strollin' After Dark" by the Shades, "I Got A Girl" by Tommy Roe & The Satins, "I Love You So Much" by Chuck Wiley, "Wolf" by The Four Mints, "Black Knee Socks" by Clyde Beavers, "I'm Happy" by Robert Gill & The Gill-O-Teens, and "I'm Snowed" by Joe South.

Barbara LeaBarbara Lea ... CD
Prestige/OJC, 1956/1957. Used ... $4.99
One of the few 50s albums ever cut from singer Barbara Lea – a great vocalist who seemed to get a bit more of a chance in the studio much later in her life! This session's got a slightly unusual feel – in that it's not really torchy, but also not as outrightly swinging either – and part of that feel might have to do with the backings, which are by 2 different small groups led by trumpeter Johnny Windhurst, who swings things along on the record, but never in a way that's too over the top. Barbara herself has a style that's expressive, but not overly emotive – a bit like Lee Wiley or some of her contemporaries, but slightly "cooler" at points. Titles include "I've Got A Pocket Full Of Dreams", "I Had Myself A True Love", "Baltimore Oriole", "Blue Skies", "My Honey's Loving Arms", and "Nobody Else But Me". CD features 2 bonus tracks! CD

VariousBoppin By The Bayou – Drive-Ins & Baby Dolls ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $11.99
Rare rocking sounds from the Louisiana scene at the end of the 50s – pulled from that magical moment when the swampy state was one of the biggest brewing grounds for new sounds at the time! This volume of the Bayou series is mostly on the rock tip – but as with other volumes and work from Louisiana in general, there's a heck of a lot of genre-crossing going on – rock that draws from blues, hillbilly, and even cajun rhythms at times – which makes for music that's a fair bit different than the sounds you might have been getting from Memphis at the time! Most of these tracks are from rare sources, too – not just obscure singles on small labels, but also some unissued master tapes – some that might have come out briefly on older compilations, and a good number of cuts appearing here for the first time ever. As usual with Ace Records, the notes and package do a great job of making sense of the whole thing – further illuminating the groove – and titles include "She's Fine" by Frankie Lowery, "Draggin The Drive Ins' by Cookie Roberts, "Baby I Don't Care" by Wiley Jeffers, "Love Can Wait" by Johnny Bass, "Charge It" by Roy Templin & The Credit Cards, "Sweet Thing" by Cleveland Crochet & His Band Of Sugar Bees, "Let Me Come Your Way" by Burl Boykin, "Frankie & Johnny" by Zoro & The Zips, "Hey Joli" by Terry Clement, "No Money Down" by Rod Bernard, "Prisoner's Song" by Tommy Todd, and "Kruschev & The Devil" by Jay Chevalier.

✨✧ Charles MingusJazz Experiments Of Charlie Mingus ... LP
Bethlehem, 1954. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A pivotal album in the career of Charles Mingus – one that really has him honing his sound, and reaching for that trademark mix of modernism and raw emotion that set a whole generation on fire! The album's a lot more freewheeling than other Mingus material from the time – although still a bit more compact than the Atlantic or Columbia sides – and the group's staffed with key early interpreters of Charles' vision – including John LaPorta on alto, Teo Macero on tenor and baritone, Thad Jones on trumpet, Clem DeRosa on drums, and Jackson Wiley on cello – an instrument that really helps shade in some of the darker corners of the tunes. Titles include great early originals like "Four Hands", "Minor Intrusion", "Thrice Upon A Theme", and "The Spur Of The Moment" – plus his great take on "Stormy Weather", which is a bit stormier than most! LP, Vinyl record album
