Lorez AlexandriaSinging Songs Everyone Knows ... CD
King, 1960. Used ... $8.99
Perhaps one of the straightest albums that Lorez ever cut – but still pretty darn great!

King (Japan), 2011. Used ... $16.99
Damn, we love these guys! And this time around, Osaka Monaurail sound harder and heavier than ever – very much back in their best 70s JBs mode – after a recent foray into 60s soul!

An incredible late 50s set for King by singer Lula Reed – and a pretty unique blend of R&B and bluer and moodier material – but a lot more upbeat than you'd expect from the title!
