Lee WileyWest Of The Moon ... LP
RCA, 1956. Very Good- ... $6.99
A great set of torchy ballads from Lee Wiley – a singer who virtually helped invent the genre on record with her classic sets for Columbia Records! This album's done a few years after those – and features backings by Ralph Burns, who brings a fair bit more sentimental moments to his work here than you might expect from some of his other more modern outings. The proceedings have a nice touch of jazz – thanks to players who include Urbie Green on trombone, Nick Travis on trumpet, and Moe Wechsler on piano – and although Lee's vocals have a slightly aging quality, that only serves to help the fragile emotions of the best numbers in the set. Titles include "You're A Sweetheart", "This Is New", "Who Can I Turn To Now?", "My Ideal", "Limehouse Blues", "I Left My Sugar Standing In The Rain", and "Keepin' Out Of Mischief Now". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label pressing with deep groove, including the rice paper inner sleeve. Cover has an ink stamp on back.)

Barbara LeaWoman In Love (Audiophile) ... CD
Riverside/Audiophile, 1955/1978. Used ... $7.99
A beautiful early album from vocalist Barbara Lea – her only session for Riverside, and a date that's a bit leaner lighter than some of her albums for Prestige! The group on here is totally great – the Billy Taylor Trio with bassist Earl May and drummer Percy Brice – augmented by guitarist Jimmy Shirley and trumpeter Johnny Windhurst, the latter of whom slides in some well-placed lines that really keep things fresh, and help push the album away from the usual territory of a vocal-plus-trio album. Lea's approach to the tunes is a bit like that of another Lee – Lee Wiley – but in a way that strips things down a bit more, and gives the traditional numbers a slightly more modern inflection. Titles include "Love Me", "As Long As I Live", "Come Rain Or Come Shine", "A Woman Alone With The Blues", "I Didn't Know About You", and "Thinking Of You". CD

East River, 1920s. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
Not just another collection of rare material from 78rpm recordings – and instead, a great little set that's definitely got a personality of its own!

Titles include "Humming Blues" by Joe Linthcombe, "Rolling Log Blues" by Lottie Kimbrough, "Guenene Tini" by Cheikha Tetma, "Walk Right In" by Cannon's Jug Stompers, "Last Kind Words" by Geeshie Wiley, "Warm Wipe Stomp" by Macon Ed & Tampa Joe, and "Washboard Cut Out" by Bobbie Leecan's Need More Band.

✨✧ Barbara LeaBarbara Lea ... CD
Prestige/OJC, 1956/1957. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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
