Carole KingIn Concert – Live At The BBC 1971 ... LP
Legacy, 1971. New Copy ... $20.99 22.99
The young Carole King in her prime – sounding really wonderful here on a well-recorded BBC set from the start of the 70s! As you can guess from the cover image, there's a nicely intimate vibe to the record – a strong focus on Carole's piano work and her unique vocal phrasing, all presented in a very spontaneous, unadorned way. Titles include great recordings of "I Feel The Earth Move", "It's Too Late", "Smackwater Jack", "Way Over Yonder", "Up On The Roof", "Will You Love Me Tomorrow", and "A Natural Woman".

✨✧ VariousHoney & Wine – Another Gerry Goffin & Carole King Song Collection ... CD
Ace (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Sublime sounds from the songwriting team of Gerry Goffin and Carole King – a tremendous little package that features some of their biggest hit singles, and a fair bit of unusual work as well! The package is the second set from Ace to feature the Goffin/King magic – and it's proof that the pair had plenty of greatness to offer back in the 60s – a never-ending flow of wonderful music, recorded here by an array of soul, rock, and pop artists of the time. The songs originally appeared on a variety of different labels, but have been collected together here – presented with tune-by-tune notes that not only tell the story of the songs, but the particular recordings as well. Titles include "A Long Way To Be Happy" by Carolyn Daye, "Honey & Wine" by The Hollies, "I Happen To Love You" by The Myddle Class, "So Goes Love" by The Turtles, "No Easy Way Down" by Nancy Wilson, "Oh No Not My Baby" by Maxine Brown, "Go Away Little Girl" by Bobby Vee, "Brand New World" by Bobby Scott, "Not Just Tomorrow But Always" by Bertell Dache, "Tell Daddy" by Ben E King, "I Need You" by Chuck Jackson, "Stage Door" by Peter James, "He Hit Me & It Felt Like A Kiss" by Jody Miller, "Don't Forget About Me" by Barbara Lewis, "Take A Giant Step" by The Rising Sons, and "Is This What I Get For Loving You" by Marianne Faithful.

VariousHung On You – More From The Goffin & King Songbook ... CD
Ace (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $9.99 18.99
Sublime sounds from one of the greatest songwriting teams of the 60s – a pair whose talents equally touched the worlds of soul, rock, and pop at the time! There's a tension to the songs of Gerry Goffin and Carole King that's been talked about over the years – and this collection provides a wonderfully strong illustration of that quality, as the ideas of the duo are spread out here over work by a diverse array of singers, all of whom circle back to that subtle sense of emotion that makes these tunes so great. Most of the numbers are from the New York scene of the mid 60s – and often have great Brill Building-styled production – but there's also some surprising entries from other scenes too, which really show the scope of the Goffin/King power. 26 tracks in all, with tune-by-tune notes – and titles that include "The Sheik" by The Clovers, "This Little Girl" by Dion, "You Turn Me On Boy" by The Honey Bees, "Don't Let Me Stand In Your Way" by Skeeter Davis, "That Old Sweet Roll" by Dusty Springfield, "Hung On You" by The Righteous Brothers, "Please Hurt Me" by Little Eva, "Snow Queen" by The Tokens, "The Boy From Chelsea" by Truly Smith, "So This Is How It Feels" by The Countrymen, "Sometime In The Morning" by The American Breed, "So Many Lonely People" by Henry Alston, "No One Ever Tells You" by The Crystals, "Road To Nowhere" by Hearts & Flowers, and "Anything Can Happen" by Walter Jackson.

VariousSomething Good From The Goffin & King Songbook ... CD
Ace (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... $8.99 18.99
Nothing but great songs from the team of Gerry Goffin & Carole King – the third volume of greatness from the pivotal 60s songwriters to be put together by our friends at Ace UK – with several of the bigger hits for good measure, but strongly focused on lesser-remembered jewels that are just as deserving! Goffin & King's stratospheric success is a testament to both their immeasurable craft and the adaptability. The latter is key, as a wildly diverse roster either hit big of should have done so with these absolutely great songs – The Drifters, Chiffons, Freddie Scott, The Byrds, The Monkees, Rick Nelson, Tony Orlando, Lesley Gore, The Tokens, Dee Dee Sharpe. Soul, rock, pop or a combination thereof – Goffin & King's reach is amazing! 26 tracks: "One Fine Day" by The Chiffons, "Hey Girl" by Freddie Scott, "Sweet Young Thing" by The Monkees, "Soul Waltzin'" by Big Dee Irwin, "Will You Love Me Tomorrow" by Bunny Sigler, "Chains" by The Everly Brothers, "Can't Stop Talking About You" by Tobin Matthews, "Take Good Care Of My Baby" by Dion, "Goin' Back" by The Byrds, "Don't Say Nothin' Bad (About My Baby)" by The Cookies and more.

CityNow That Everything's Been Said ... LP
Ode, 1968. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $43.99
A wonderful early project from Carole King – work that predates her well-known solo career of the 70s, and which is infinitely hipper overall! The groove here is a blend of the soulful roots that Carole was crafting for other artists on her compositions of the 60s – mixed with some of the hipper singer-songwriter modes of the late 60s – put together at a level that still quite far from cliches that would later mar the genre. The group's a trio – with Carole on piano and vocals, Danny Kootch Kortchmar on guitar and added vocals, and Charles Larkey on bass – and the overall feel is somewhere in the neighborhood of Roger Nichols & The Small Circle Of Friends, with a similar sense of freshness that would hardly be replicated again. Lou Adler did some great production on the record – and tracks include the group's great version of "Snow Queen", plus "Why Are You Leaving", "I Don't Believe It", "All My Time", "Victim Of Circumstance", "Now That Everything's Been Said", and "Man Without A Dream". LP, Vinyl record album
("Unofficial" pressing in a black & white cover. Vinyl has small press flaw pits on both sides.)

Mikio MasudaCorazon ... LP
Electric Bird/Holy Basil, 1979. New Copy (reissue)... $35.99 39.98
Keyboardist Mikio Masuda cut plenty of great fusion records in 70s Japan – but this set was recorded in the US, with some very soulful help from a great American lineup! David Matthews arranged the set, with a bit of a Kudu Records vibe – which means that Mikio's got lead solos on both acoustic and electric piano, amidst tight backings that not only use rhythms from Bernard Purdie on drums, mixed with larger strings – but which also include occasional backing vocals from Lani Groves and Diva Grey! Rhythms sometimes have some warm Latin inflections – echoing the title – and tracks include "Ride On The Donkey", "Samba Em Praia", "Let's Get Together", "Love Talkin", and a nice version of Carole King's "Corazon". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited to 500 copies!)

Johnny MathisLove Story/You've Got A Friend/First Time Ever/Song Sung Blue ... CD
Columbia/BGO (UK), Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99 22.99
Pure mellow magic – four early 70s Johnny Mathis albums in a single set! Love Story has Johnny Mathis finding a perfect 70s space for his sublime vocal style – not the late nite love moods of the early years, but instead the warmer territory of the rising adult contemporary market – one that almost seemed tailor made for the Mathis magic! Producer Jack Gold does a great job of mixing up moods here – but as you might expect, the ballads are where Johnny really knocks it out of the park – on titles that include "Love Story", "We've Only Just Begun", "My Sweet Lord", "Goin Out Of My Head/Can't Take My Eyes Off You", "Loss Of Love", "We've Only Just Begun", and "What Are You Doing The Rest Of Your Life". You've Got A Friend is a great setting for the legendary voice of Johnny Mathis – as the maturing singer takes on then-contemporary tracks by artists like Carole King, Kris Kristofferson, and The Bee Gees! These tunes really get a different treatment here in Johnny's hands – not just because the arrangements are quite far from the original pop songs – but also because that magic Mathis style really has a lot of different inflections on the lyrics! Titles include "You've Got A Friend", "Help Me Make It Through The Night", "How Can You Mend A Broken Heart", "If You Could Read My Mind", "For All We Know", "If We Only Have Love", and "It's Too Late". First Time Ever I Saw Your Face is one of those records that perfectly illustrates the shift that Johnny Mathis had made by the 70s – his move from the late nite spot on the cushions of the couch, to a more sophisticated interpreter of richer emotions that provide more than a day's worth of expression on an album like this! Mathis has completely perfected his voice by this point – and almost uses it in painterly fashion, over full arrangements from All Caps and D'Arneill Pershing – with lightly flowing strings, tinkling piano, and all these subtle elements that never get in the way of Johnny's majestic lead. Titles include "The Summer Knows", "Since I Fell For You", "Without You", "Betcha By Golly Wow", "Last Night I Didn't Get To Sleep At All", "Speak Softly Love", and "First Time Ever I Saw Your Face". Song Sung Blue is a nice little album that has the legendary voice of Johnny Mathis taking on mature songwriting material from Gilbert O'Sullivan, Ralph MacDonald, Burt Bacharach, Neil Diamond, and even Bill Withers! All the tunes get completely transformed in the Mathis approach – very different than their familiar versions, not just thanks to Johnny's unique vocals – but also the rich arrangements by D'Arneill Pershing, who was turning out to be one of the best Mathis arrangers in the 70s – able to balance individual elements in the backings in just the right way to echo the spirit of the songs. Titles include "Play Me", "Alone Again Naturally", "Lean On Me", "Too Young", "Where Is The Love", "Run To Me", and "Song Sung Blue". CD

✨✧ Creative SourceMigration (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Sussex/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great follow-up to the group's first hit LP on Sussex – not nearly as successful chart-wise, but a great display of their unique approach to group soul. The band's a quintet at this point, and their vocals are arranged by Skip Scarborough with that sweet compressed style that he was forging at the time. As on the first album, the band do a great job with a Bill Withers tune – and lay out a very hip reading of "Harlem" with some nice conga backing. The album also features a great funky reading of the Carole King cut "Corazon", an extended take on Scarborough's "I Just Can't See Myself Without You", and the original groovers "Keep On Movin" and "Migration", which both have that fuzzy guitar Sussex sound! Includes two bonus cuts. CD

Hideto SasakiStop Over ... LP
BBE (UK), 1976. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $39.99 48.99
A great group, and one we've never heard before – stepping out with some tremendous trumpet and alto work that really makes the album sparkle! The group's led by trumpeter Hideto Sasaki, and features alto from guest Sekine Toshiyuki – both working in a mode that's sharply angular, but deeply soulful – like some of the most modern Blue Note work at the end of the 60s! There's some really wonderful interplay between the horns – supported by vamping, soaring rhythms on piano, bass, and drums – and in a way, the record feels like one of those later Lee Morgan dates, still rooted in hardbop traditions, but really taking off with new ideas! Titles include a wonderful version of "Little B's Poem", plus "Carole's Garden", "Turquoise Twice", "Stop Over", and "Soultrane". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ David AxelrodSong Of Innocence ... CD
Capitol/Now Again, 1968. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of a handful of amazing albums recorded by David Axelrod towards the end of the 60s – really stunning, genre-breaking music that was years ahead of its time – and which has only finally been getting its due in more recent decades! At the time of the record, Axelrod was a house producer at Capitol Records – where he'd created big hits for Lou Rawls and Cannonball Adderley – and he'd also been experimenting a bit with studio techniques for other rock groups. But here, the Axe brings all his experience into play – then sends things soaring to the skies – with music based on the work of poet William Blake, but delivered in this totally groovy west coast 60s mode. The core of the instrumentation features funky drums from Earl Palmer and bass from Carole Kaye – both of whom really keep things rock-solid amidst the larger mix of strings and instruments directed by the great Don Randi – who himself is pretty darn wonderful too. The music has nice snatches of fuzz and organ throughout – jazzy moments, funky passages, and lots more too – served up on tunes that include much-sampled song "Holy Thursday" – plus "The Smile", "A Dream", "Song Of Innocence", and "The Mental Traveler". William Blake never sounded so funky! CD
(Fantastic reissue – new remastering, and a big booklet of notes on the music!)
