New Thresholds In Sound (Jukebox EP)

7-inch (Item 911721) RCA, 1963 — Condition: Sealed
(pic cover)

Sid Ramin at his most dynamic – heard here on this sweet RCA session from the early 60s, in modes that really show the same kind of arrangements that Sid was doing for TV at the time! The feel of the record really lives up to the "new thresholds" title – as Ramin pushes the orchestra in all these colorful, vivid ways – yet still also while keeping things fluid, and a fair bit jazz at times – never letting the album just be one of those tricks for the hi-fi crowd, and still hanging on strongly to a musical mode! Tracks include "Strike Up The Band", "Swanee", "Bewitched", "Sweetest Sounds", "Varsity Drag", and "Life Is Just A Bowl Of Cherries".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Sealed

This is what it says, that the record is still held fast in shrink-wrap. We tend to be pretty suspicious about these things, so if the shrink-wrap doesn't look original, or if the record seems to have undergone some damage over time, we'll probably take it out of the wrapper to ensure that it's in good shape — which is why we don't have more of these. In some cases the shrink-wrap may be torn in spots, but if it's not possible the record has been taken out and played, the record will still qualify as "Sealed".

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Eddy Senay

Safari/Sarko East
Sussex, 1973. Near Mint-
Nice choppy funky guitars from the fuzzy mind of Eddy Senay. "Safari"'s got a nice jungle funk feel, and "Sarko East" is a little bit jazzier. 7-inch, Vinyl record
People, 1972. Near Mint-
An excellent hard-to-find track by Lyn Collins! "Me & My Baby" has a wonderful gospelly intro, similar to "Message to the Soul Sisters", which then leaps into a great groove with a nice hard soul hook! The flip has sort of a nice Muscle Shoals-ish sound, with some good ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Alvin Cash & The Registers

Doin' The Ali Shuffle/Feel So Good
Mar V Lus, Late 60s. Near Mint-
Alvin Cash pays tribute to Cassius Clay – screaming his way through the cut in a way that pre-dates most other Ali tribute songs, grooving away in that hard funky groove that you'd find on his best 60s work. "Feel So Good" is great, too – a heavy R&B stomper with a "T ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Soul International, Early 70s. Near Mint-
Beautiful mellow soul from one of the 70's least-recognized talents. Larry Saunders had a beautiful jazz-tinged style that sounded a bit like Donny Hathaway or Stevie Wonder, but which also had more of an east coast indie soul vibe to it. This single contains 2 of the best tracks from his rare ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Bandit, Early 70s. Very Good+
An excellent harmony soul single by this lost sweet soul group from Chicago! The production and vocals have a real east coast style, with soaring sweet bits, and cool dope soulful arrangements that work beautifully in a Whatnauts/Moments kind of way. 7-inch, Vinyl record
Sedgrick, Late 60s. Near Mint-
One of the few great obscure singles cut by Chicago soul singer Jackie Ross. Although Jackie had earlier fame on Chess, her later work is all quite good – and this single benefits from some great writing and production by James Van Leer. The a-side's a nice mellow number, but we like the ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Frankie Karl & The Dreams

I'm So Glad/Don't Be Afraid (Do As I Say)
DC Sound Ltd, Late 60s. Very Good-
Great harmony soul! Both cuts are stellar – with that kind of spare, post-doo wop 60s soul harmony sound that we love to death. The production is by Gene Dozier, and Frankie Karl's vocals really send us! A great lost winner! 7-inch, Vinyl record
DC International, 1974. Near Mint-
Great stuff from one of the 70s' best vocal groups! "Seems Like" is stone mellow east coast harmony soul, with a sweet ballad style. "Town Called Nowhere" is even better, and has a nice choppy guitar, and a good midtempo groove. Very nice! 7-inch, Vinyl record
