Emma Donovan & The PutbacksCrossover ... LP
Hope Street (Australia), 2020. New Copy ... $23.99 24.98
Fantastic work from Australian soul singer Emma Donovan – an artist who's grown greatly in the space between her last album with The Putbacks – to a point where she and the group really stand apart from most other records of this nature! This isn't a funk group doing a retro thing with a female singer in the lead – and instead, the whole thing is a very well-crafted soul record – not entirely contemporary, but really free of overdone 60s and 70s modes – as the Putbacks often move in slow-stepping funky styles, which really lets the deep deep sound of Emma's vocals build and resonate powerfully over the righteous lyrics of the tunes. The record's got the kind of global appeal that will have you shuffling away your recent Mavis Staples albums for the younger, more personal vibe that Donovan and the group bring here – on titles that include "Mob March", "Crossover", "Don't Give Up On Me", "Leftovers", "Pretty One", and "Hold On".

✨✧ Gene AmmonsLive! In Chicago ... LP
Prestige, 1961/1967. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
Killer live work from Jug – recorded during the early 60s in Chicago, with just an organ-based trio, and very much in the feeling of the best small-group lounge jazz shows of the day! The material is issued here in a 1967 version, its first release – but the grooves were recorded at the DJ Lounge in Chicago – at a time when Gene Ammons was turning out some very raw, rough-edged material! Organist Eddie Buster does a pretty darn good job of wailing away, and Ammons is in very different, very freewheeling form than on many of his other studio sessions from the time. Gerald Donovan is on drums – and titles include "Fast Track", "Foot Tappin", "Scrapple From The Apple", and "Jug's Blue Blues". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Glen CampbellGentle On My Mind/By The Time I Get To Phoenix ... CD
Capitol/BGO (UK), 1967/1968. New Copy ... $9.99 14.99
A pair of Capitol Records classics from Glenn Campbell – back to back on a single CD! First up is Gentle On My Mind – an insanely wonderful early album from Glenn Campbell – the kind of music that's not really rock, pop, or country – but instead a unique summation of all, at a level that only Campbell could do this well The album kicks off with the sublime pop hit "Gentle On My Mind" – one of those jangly tunes that we could listen to forever – and then soars into a beautiful blend of tunes from different sources, including covers of Nilsson's "Without Her", Rod McKuen's "The World I Used to Know", Jimmie Rodgers' "It's Over", and Donovan's "Catch The Wind" – as well as the huge hit "Mary In The Morning". Glenn's got a hell of a voice – and it sounds great on all the tracks! By The Time I Get To Phoenix begins with Glenn Campbell's amazing take on the title tune by Jimmy Webb – a pure moment of 60s genius! The pairing of Glen Campbell and Jimmy Webb is probably one of the greatest ideas ever in the history of pop music – as you'll hear on the album's title track, "By The Time I Get To Phoenix". Glen's original hit version of the song – written by a wee Jimmy at a young age – forever cut the way for his unique blend of pop, country, and easy vocal styles. The tune also kicks off this pretty nice little album of tracks that features great lesser known numbers, including some surprisingly great country covers. Titles include "Back In The Race", "My Baby's Gone", "Tomorrow Never Comes", "Bad Seed", "Love is A Lonesome River", and "I'll Be Lucky Some Day". CD

Davy GrahamMidnight Man ... LP
Decca/East Central One (UK), 1966. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99 21.99
A fantastic record from Davy Graham – an amazing guitarist, and a hell of a singer too – the sort of artist we'd rank right up there with Donovan, John Martyn, and maybe even Nick Drake! At times Graham channels Eastern musical styles in his guitar – almost a Peter Walker sort of raga mode – other times, he has a way of transforming straighter tunes with a sense of mysticism – really doing a hell of a lot with just a few slight changes, and in ways that are light years beyond what so many American folkies were trying to do in 1966. The whole thing is fantastic – a real discovery in music, and one that should have made Graham huge – with titles that include "The Fakir", "Watermelon Man", "No Preacher Blues", "Rags & Old Iron", "Money Honey", "Lost Lover Blues", "Neighbor Neighbor", and "Walkin The Dog".

Peggy LeeBasin Street East Proudly Presents Peggy Lee (with bonus track) ... CD
Capitol, 1961. Used ... $3.99
Peggy Lee's at Basin Street, but the set's an upbeat, swinging date that's right up there with her studio work for Capitol in the 60s! The album's billed as an "after hours" performance – and it's definitely got the relaxed feel to live up to that promise – a feel that's more small combo jazzy than other Lee work of the period, although it's still got that upbeat punch we love from the Capitol years. The group is directed by Joe Harnell, who also plays piano – and other members include Bob Donovan on flute, Willie Thomas and Phil Sunkel on trumpets, Dennis Budimir on guitar, and Chino Pozo on congas and bongos. Titles inlcude "I Got A Man", "The Second Time Around", "Fever", "Moments Like This", "Day In Day Out", and "Them There Eyes". CD also features a bonus track – "Call Me Darling". CD

Scott McKenzieVoice of Scott McKenzie ... LP
Ode, 1967. Very Good+ ... $14.99
A really great debut from Scott McKenzie – formerly of the pop-folk combo The Journeymen, stepping out here with some great production from John Phillips and Lou Adler – in a mode that mixes bits of jazz in with the folk, in a gentle, sad-tinged style that reminds us a bit of Tim Hardin! There's a slight bit more power in McKenzie's music than Hardin's, but they both share a similar thin-voiced style that's more personal than a good deal of earlier folkies – a pulling in of politics and bigger issues to themes that are more intimate and pointed, served up with a new sophistication in the arrangements that helps further that end! Titles include the hit "San Francisco (Be Sure To Wear Flowers In Your Hair)", a cover of Donovan's "Celeste", and the tunes "Like An Old Time Movie", "No No No No No", "Reason To Believe", and "What's The Difference (Chapters I and II)".

Narassa (Sandro Brugnolini)/Zanagoria (Giorgio Carnini)UST 7011 – Popfolkmusic (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Fonit Cetra/Sonor (Italy), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
A split set of sound library instrumentals – recorded by two more famous artists, each working here under a pseudonym! Narassa is Sandro Brugnolini – an artist you might know for darker, moodier music on other records – but who turns in some very cool tracks on side one – numbers that definitely live up to the "popfolkmusic" title – in the way that they offer up unusual instrumental twists that echo popular modes of the tune, but in an offbeat way. The side features weird recastings of modes inspired by Bacharach, Donovan, and others – with titles that include "Pop Medioevale", "Gli Anni Del Candore", "Cineclown", and "Fermiamo Il Tramonto". Side two features work by Zanagoria – aka Giorgio Carnini – tunes that make sweet use of keyboards, including piano, electric piano, moog, and organ – used in a range of styles that includes a few especially nice funky tracks! Titles include "Calcio Derby", "Verdi Pascoli Inglesi", "Apertivo Da Vanni", and "Itinario Di Un Hippy". LP, Vinyl record album

NirvanaDedicated To Markos 3 ... CD
Island/Universal (Japan), 1969. New Copy ... About April 29, 2021
Brilliant work from Nirvana – a duo who bring together so many wonderful elements of late 60s Brit pop – from weird trippy touches to tuneful melodies to superb full arrangements – handled here by giants Mike Vickers, Johnny Scott, and Tony Visconti! There's a bounce and a push to all the cuts here – tunes that might be self-indulgent or too weird in other hands, but which bristle with catchy, creative energy throughout – of the sort that should have made these guys huge at the time – and which certainly should have earned them a bigger place on our side of the Atlantic! We love this stuff in the way we like Donovan with Mickie Most, or maybe late 60s Hollies – but Nirvana is weirder than both – as you'll hear on tracks that include "Illinois", "The World Is Cold Without You", "Christopher Lucifer", "Aline Cherie", "Tres Tres Bien", "It Happened To Sundays Ago", "Love Suite", and "Black Flower".

Bridget St JohnSongs For The Gentle Man ... LP
Dandelion, 1971. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $19.99
The second album from the enigmatic Bridget St John – and a slightly more expanded version of the sound explored on her debut! Bridget's still very much in a folk-inspired sound here – but like the work of Nick Drake and some of her contemporaries on the British scene, this album has jazzier phrasings and some slightly baroque touches on some tunes – really deepening the feel of the songs, and giving the album a dark depth that we'd easily compare with some of Drake's greatest work. Studio genius Ron Geesin produced the set with a surprising degree of subtlety – just the right amount of edgey undercurrents to unsettle the tunes nicely – never threatening Bridget's presence on the album, but augmenting the moody spectrums that already came across so nicely on the first record. Titles include "A Day A Way", "City Crazy", "Back To Stay", "Seagull Sunday", "If You'd Been There", "Song For The Laird Of Connaught Hall (part 2)", "It Seems Very Strange", and a version of Donovan's "The Pebble & The Man".

✨✧ 13th Floor ElevatorsYou & I & Me ... CD
Sunset Blvd, Mid 60s/1976. Used 2 CDs ... $14.99
A huge batch of rare material from one of the freakiest, fuzziest groups of the 60s – all pulled from the archives of Roy Ames, and recorded in Houston and San Francisco in 1966 and 1967 – and mixed here with some equally wild Roky Erikson solo material from 1976! There's not much in the way of detailed notes, but if you love the Elevators as much as we do, you'll love the overall sound – as the whole thing's got a rawness that really shows off that special edge of the group and some of their key Texas psych contemporaries – served up here on tunes that include "You're Gonna Miss Me", "Before You Accuse Me", "Levitation", "Monkey Island", "Reverberation", "Tried To Hide", "The Word", "You Really Got Me", "I'm Gonna Love You Too", "Fire Engine", "She Lives In A Time Of Her Own", and "Kingdom Of Heaven" – plus some radio material too! The Roky Erikson tracks are even more raw, and even include some Dylan and Donovan covers – with titles that include "Catch The Wind", "Lonesome Death Of Hattie Carroll", "I'll Sing For You", "Don't Sing For Me Lucifer", "Lay Down Your Weary Tune", and "Baby Let Me Follow You Down".

VariousRight Back Where We Started From – Female Pop & Soul In Seventies Britain (3CD set) ... CD
RPM (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy 3CD ... $24.99
A totally great look at the role of the female singer in mid 70s England – a role that's a bit of an evolution from the UK pop styles of the 60s – soaring forth in a great mix of rock, vocal, and soul-based modes! Some of the singers are names that you'd recognize from the initial female pop wave that broke big from British shores in the 60s, mixed here with younger artists, and even a few Americans who made the scene overseas, then scored some surprising hits – all in a really great range of very groovy styles! Most work is from the years before punk, and as with other of these excellent 3CD sets on RPM, not only is the set list superb, but the whole thing comes with fantastic notes that really illuminate all the many artists in the package – a lineup that features 77 tracks by Samantha Jones, Carol Woods, Milly Scott, Sweetcorn, Flirts, Jo Anne Love, Tommi, Doris Duke, The Big Spenders, Madeline Bell, Margie Miller, Julie Rogers, Carol Hunter, Linda Kendrick, Millicent Martin, Val McKenna, Maxine Nightingale, Linda Rothwell, Honeyend, Ruth Swann, and many others. Heck, the whole thing might be worth it enough for the version of Donovan's "Hurdy Gurdy Man" sung by Eartha Kitt! CD

✨✧ MomusPoison Boyfriend ... LP
Creation (UK), 1987. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The first album that Momus recorded for Creation Records – a label that provided him with a much stronger springboard than before – which was perfect for the way the singer blended very offbeat lyrics with compelling mainstream songcraft! Momus was always very different than most of the Brit 80s scene in which he worked – influenced strongly by the French work of singer/songwriters like George Brassens, Jacques Brel, and Serge Gainsbourg – but graced with a very British wit, which made for an especially biting style that worked well with the themes of his songs. Momus has a vocal style that's maybe somewhere in Donovan territory, but sharper – and he draws from a variety of European song modes, fitted to the situation of each individual songs – as you'll hear on classics like "Situation Comedy Blues", "Three Wars", "The Gatecrasher", "Flame Into Being", and the Serge Gainsbourg-like "Closer To You".

✨✧ Bert JanschBirthday Blues ... LP
Reprise/Superior Viaduct, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of the greatest albums ever from UK genius Bert Jansch – cut as a solo set at a time when his fame was rising with the group Pentangle, and somewhat overlooked at the time! Yet all these many years later, we'd rank this one right up alongside important records of the period by Nick Drake – even though Jansch has a style that's completely his own – a bit ancient at times, somewhat bluesy on his guitar inflections, and set to this amazing voice that makes even the simplest lyric come across with a spooky sort of edge. Instrumentation is relatively spare – mostly Bert on guitar, joined by occasional players who include jazzman Ray Warleigh on alto and flute, and Duffy Power on harmonica – shaded in by producer Shel Talmy in ways that remind us of the lighter folksy numbers on the Donovan productions by Mickie Most. Titles include "The Bright New Year", "Tree Song", "Poison", "Wishing Well", "Blues", "I Am Lonely", and "Come Sing Me A Happy Song To Prove We Can All Get Along The Lumpy Bumpy Long & Dusty Road". LP, Vinyl record album
