Sound Venture
Polydor/Universal (UK), 1966.
CD ... About December 5, 2016
One of the jazziest early albums from Georgie Fame – a set that has him singing with the big band of Harry South, at a level that's a lot more complicated than some of his other work with The Blue Flames! The style here still has that mod 60s London feel, but it also has some deeper ... CD

Sweet Things
Polydor/Universal (UK), 1966.
CD ... About December 5, 2016
A definite sweet thing from Georgie Fame – a record that has him filling in his sound even more than before, with tremendously soulful results! The backings here are bigger than before – a bit tooled in an American soul mode, but still with that beautifully raspy Georgie Fame touch ... CD

Rhythm & Blues At The Flamingo
Polydor/Universal (UK), 1964.
CD ... About December 5, 2016
Blistering early work from a young Georgie Fame – a set that definitely lives up to the Rhythm & Blues in the title! The set was recorded live at London's hip Flamingo club – and Georgie and The Blue Flames are very much in command of the crowd – burning with the intensity of ... CD

Fame At Last
Polydor/Universal (UK), 1964.
CD ... About December 5, 2016
Fame at last – and well-deserved fame too, because young Georgie's working here in a style that's unlike anybody else! The album's a brilliant mix of jazz, soul, and R&B – all filtered through a mod sort of London freshness, as early proof that the city could always take some great ... CD

Sweet Maya/Luv N' Haight, 1977.
LP ... About January 20, 2017
An obscure bit of mellow soul and vocals from this lost 70s Michigan combo! The group have a sound that's almost a 70s take on the groove of Sergio Mendes & Brasil 66 – one that uses dual vocals to expand the front end of many of the tunes, plus some lightly dancing electric rhythms that ...

Amazing Nina Simone
Colpix/Warner (Japan), 1959.
CD ... About January 25, 2017
Amazing is right – as the album features Nina caught at a great early point in her career, delivering a mix of ballads and folkish tunes – all with the kind of emotion that has kept us listening to her over the years. The approach is simple, but legendary, and filled with righteous ... CD

Drinking Again
Roulette/Warner (Japan), Early 60s.
CD ... About January 25, 2017
A great album by Dinah, and one that cuts past the sleepy standards and doleful pop of her Mercury recordings. This one's a mature, smoky album of boozing and sorrow, with lush arrangements by Don Costa that perfectly offset the time-hardened quality of Dinah's unique voice. The title cut "Dr ... CD

Jubilee/Warner (Japan), Late 50s.
CD ... About January 25, 2017
Prime early Della Reese at her best – a record with a really moody feel, and a depth that few other singers can match! The arrangements from Reg Owen have a fair bit of strings, and a very blue undercurrent – and Della's vocals cut through them strongly with a soulful, searching ... CD

What Is There To Say
Jubilee/Warner (Japan), Late 50s.
CD ... About January 25, 2017
A great lost album of vocals by Betty St Claire – done in a style that's similar to some of Ella Fitzgerald's work on Verve from the 50s, but recorded with a small group and a rawer sound that keeps the soulfulness of the album pretty high. Titles include "Skylark", "That Old ... CD

Lonely Hours
Roulette/Warner (Japan), 1964.
CD ... About February 22, 2017
Beautiful later stuff from Sarah! Although it's easy to think that she "sold out" by making albums like this for Roulette – with a larger backing than before, and more of a pop feel – this album is also incredible, and has a sophisticated sense of interpretation we never ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Colpix/Warner (Japan), 1962.
CD ... About February 22, 2017
Nina sings Ellington – but as always, she makes whatever she sings all her own! The album's a bit straighter than later efforts – with large backings by Stu Phillips that also feature vocals by the Malcolm Dodds Singers – but Nina also conceived the whole thing herself, as an ... CD
