DonovanHurdy Gurdy Man ... LP
Epic, 1968. Sealed ... $39.99
Easily one of the headiest Donovan albums of the 60s – a record that moves past the simple psychedelic pop of earlier hits, and into a range of mind-expanding themes and styles! There's a cerebral quality here that seems to take hold even on the simpler, catchier tunes – a deeply introspective approach that has Donovan working in a world that's really all his own – less concerned with hit singles, and more focused on a personal journey in music, one that ties together many strands of music borrowed from Celtic, West Indian, jazz, and folk sources. Arrangers are John Cameron and John Paul Jones – and titles include "Get Thy Bearings", "Peregrine", "The Entertaining Of A Shy Girl", "West Indian Lady", "Jennifer Juniper", "Tangier", "The River Song", "The Sun Is A Very Magic Fellow", and "Hi It's Been A Long Time".

✨✧ DonovanWear Your Love Like Heaven ... LP
Epic, 1967. Very Good- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of Donovan's greatest albums! This LP is a perfect blend of pop psychedelia – complicated little songs that sum more in a short space than some of Donovan's contemporaries could do in a single album side. Nearly every cut on here is a tiny little 3 minute gem – and tunes include "There Was A Time", "Sun", "The Land Of Doesn't Have To Be", "Wear Your Love Like Heaven", "Little Boy In Corduroy", and "Mad John's Escape". LP, Vinyl record album

AnimalsAnimalism ... LP
MGM, 1966. Very Good- ... $8.99
Pure burning soul from The Animals – a nicely stripped-down set that revels in older R&B styles – cooked up with a version of the group that features Dave Rowberry on Hammond and lots of screaming vocals from Eric B! The original Animals vibe is opened up a bit more with some heavier sounds that reflect the change of moves at the time – but overall, the tracks are mostly shortish and respectful to the roots that inspired the group – in a way that helps bring together music from a range of different sources. Titles include versions of Fred Neil's "Other Side Of Life", Zappa's "All Night Long", Sam Cooke's "Shake", Donovan's "Hey Gyp", and Ray Charles' "Hit The Road Jack" – plus "Smoke Stack Lightning", "Rock Me Baby", "Outcast", "Louisiana Blues", and "Going Down Slow".

Wynder K FrogShook, Shimmy, & Shake – The Complete Recordings 1966 to 1970 (Sunshine Superfrog/Out Of The Frying Pan/Into The Fire/bonus tracks) (3CD set) ... CD
RPM (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 3CD ... $24.99
Three full albums of romping organ work from Wynder K Frog – plus lots of bonus tracks too! First up is Sunshine Superfrog – a record with a Donovan reference in the title, but a much more mod set overall – thanks to searing Hammond work from organist Mick Weaver, who was maybe one of the hippest London cats on his instrument at the time! The tunes draw equally from the Hammond soul jazz of artists like Jimmy Smith or Jimmy McGriff, and from the soul instrumental style of the time – particularly the grooves of Stax and Atlantic Records – and the deft work on the keys of the organ show that you hardly need a singer to make these records groove. Titles include "I Feel So Bad", "Blues For A Frog", "Hold On I'm Coming", "Incense", "Feel It", "Dancin Pain", "Mercy", and "Somebody Help Me". Next is Out Of The Frying Pan – a lost Hammond classic from organist Mick Weaver, who famously worked with the group Traffic! This set's a lot different than the work he did in that band, though – as the album's all instrumental, and has a quick-stepping, all-soul sound that's a lot like the best Jimmy McGriff organ jazz albums on Sue Records – mixed with maybe a bit of the mod sound of London at the time! Tunes are tight and short, but pack plenty of punch – and the album also features great work on saxes from Chris Mercer and Dick Heckstall-Smith. Titles include "Green Door", "Bad Eye", "Willie & The Hand Jive", "House That Jack Built", "Gasoline Alley", and "Harpsichord Shuffle". Last up is Into The Fire – which has the group really opening up, laying down some wonderfully jazzy and funky instrumentals with a fuzzy Hammond sound that's really great! Although the set was recorded in the UK, the best cuts have a soulful crossover sound that feels like it should have been recorded during one of the Cadet Concept sessions in Chicago at the same time. One cut has vocals, but the best are the instrumentals – like "Into the Fire", "Howl In Wolf's Clothing", "Hot Salt Beef", "Cool Hand Stanley", and "Why Am I Treated So Bad". The set features lots of bonus tracks from singles and other sources – including "Zooming", "Green Door", "I'm A Man", "Henry's Panter", "Baldy", "Dancing Frog (stereo)", "Happy Jack", "Funky Broadway", "I'll Go Crazy", "A Memory Of Bruce", "Loving You Is Sweeter Than Ever", and "We Can Work It Out".

Jon-MarkSally Free & Easy ... CD
Decca/RPM (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $6.99 13.99
Ear-opening work from Jon-Mark – best known as half of the Mark-Almond band with Johnny Almond, but here working as a solo act on his own – in a spare folksy mode that's right up there with some of the best on the Brit folk scene of the 60s! Jon's guitar playing alone is worth the price of admission – at a level that rivals that of Bert Jansch, John Renbourn, or some of the others of the new generation that have gotten more fame over the decades – and he's also a hell of a singer, with a voice that's at once ancient and youthful, maybe more tuned towards some older themes than Dylan politics, but also with a grooviness that echoes a bit of Donovan too. Apart from two tracks here that were issued as a single, all the other material has never been released – making the whole thing a huge discovery, finally given its due. Titles include "Blues For Hobbits", "Paris Bells", "Sally Free & Easy", "Portland Town", "The Vulture", "Love From Afar", "Gotta Make The Future Bright", "The First Time", "Black Girl", "North Country Fair", and "Once I Loved A Girl".

Bridget St JohnSongs For The Gentle Man ... CD
Dandelion/Cherry Red (UK), 1971. Used ... Just Sold Out!
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".

VariousCome Join My Orchestra – The British Baroque Pop Sound 1967 to 1973 (3CD set) ... CD
Grapefruit (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 3CD ... $18.99
A very cool little genre – one that overlaps a bit with UK folk and some of its prettier pop of the period – and which often gets the same sort of top-shelf studio and production help as the best of the psychedelic generation! The music here is heavy on strings, woodwinds, and other larger instrumental elements – but all used in a way that's very hip, and quite different from the slicker pop modes of just a few years before! The cuts here are all made by longer-haired, open minded folks from the time – helping to reshape folk styles towards their acid generation to come, or introducing a more thoughtful mode of songwriting amidst the freakier period of the psych years – all with results that are completely sublime. You'll recognize a few names here, including a number you might not think of as "baroque pop" – but together, they work well with some of the lesser-knowns – to craft music that helped draw together generations of British musical expression, at a level that's still pretty darn fresh today. 3CD set features a great booklet of notes, and 80 tracks by artists who include The Factotums, The Move, Fickle Pickle, Donovan, Gilbert, Tony Hazzard, The Strawbs, Freedom, Clifford T Ward, The Money Jungle, Jonathan Gill, Bert Jansch, The Matchmakers, Picadilly Line, Briget St John, Bill Fay, Procol Harum, The Majority, Five Steps Beyond, Festival, Stackridge, Muffin, Agincourt, The Orange Bicycle, Mike Batt, Billy Nicholls, Wil Malone, Julian Brooks, Lean Nixon, Harmony Grass, and many more!

VariousPop Genius Of Mickie Most ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $11.99 21.98
They're not lying with the title of this one – as producer Mickie Most was one of the true studio geniuses on the UK scene of the 60s – as you'll hear here in a fantastic collection of some of his best work – packaged with a beautiful 72 page booklet of notes that will tell you everything you'll need to know about the man himself! But even without the big booklet, the music here speaks volumes on its own – as Mickie's genius runs from some of the key groups of the Brit Invasion years, to that fantastic late 60s moment when the English scene was getting very cool and expressive – to key 70s points that include a bit of early glam, hard rock, and other styles too! You've probably heard a good number of these tracks over the years, but never realized they all had Mickie's hands on them – and they're packaged together here with some great surprises along the way – titles that include "Gin House" by Paul Williams & The Big Roll Band, "Little Games" by The Yardbirds, "Motor Bikin" by Chris Spedding, "House Of The Rising Sun" by The Animals, "Hi Ho Silver Lining" by Jeff Beck, "Journey" by Duncan Browne, "Brother Louie" by Hot Chocolate, "Sunshine Superman" by Donovan, "I Love Rock N Roll" by Arrows, "Living Next Door To Alice" by New World, "The Boat That I Row" by Lulu, "Walking" by CCS, "Dance With The Devil" by Cozy Powell, "No Milk Today" by Herman's Hermits, "Flight 2" by Angelo & Eighteen, "Some Girls" by Racey, "Bread & Butter" by Barry St John, "Days Of My Life" by The Seekers, and "48 Crash" by Suzi Quatro.

VariousWishyouawish – The Hollies' Compositions By Others 1965 to 1968 ... CD
Teensville, Mid 60s. New Copy ... $8.99 14.99
A great little songbook compilation – and one that features material that we might never have heard at all! Back in the 60s, there were definitely key groups and singers whose tunes were covered by others – like The Beatles, Bob Dylan, and even Donovan – but The Hollies, despite some great material of their own, wouldn't be a name that we'd quickly add to that list! And yet the compilers of this very groovy set have managed to track down 30 rare singles from the time – really fresh readings of tunes from the biggest early years of the British group – sometimes done at a level that's pretty close to the originals, sometimes nicely divergent – especially when bigger Sunshine Pop elements come into the mix. Titles include "Pay You Back With Interest" by Dana Gillespie, "Charlie & Fred" by Bat McGrath & D Harvey Potter, "I've Got A Way Of My Own" by Electric Prunes, "High Classed" by Bobby Davis, "Lullaby To Tim" by Teenmakers, "Fifi The Flea" by The Sidekicks, "Go away" by The Mirage, "Peculiar Situation" by The Young Idea, "What's Wrong With The Way I Love" by The Twilights, "Too Many People" by Ronnie Burns, "Coming From The Ground" by The Lee Kings, "Put Yourself In My Place" by Episode Six, "You'll Be Mine" by The 4 Strangers, and "Wishyouawish" by Cathy Rich.

✨✧ HolliesButterfly ... LP
EMI (UK), 1967. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The Hollies really open up their wings and fly here – taking on more psychedelic elements than ever before, and tripping out their sound in a way that really pushes them past the familiar his! Yet the approach is never overdone, either – as the whole thing is kept in kept in shape by producer Ron Richards, and the record also features some great Johnny Scott arrangements on a few tracks too! The approach is a bit like that which worked perfectly with Donovan during the same stretch in his career – but maybe even better, as it's topped by the wonderfully charismatic vocals and strong sense of hooks that the group had right from the start – so that the odd sitar line or flute chorus is balanced by some fantastic vocals upfront. Titles include "Would You Believe", "Dear Eloise", "Wish You A Wish", "Pegasus", "Try It", "Elevated Observations", and "Step Inside". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Hot ChocolateHot Chocolate ... LP
Big Tree, 1975. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A killer set from one of the most unique acts of the 70s – the legendary Hot Chocolate, a group with a sound unlike anyone else at the time! Hot Chocolate's groove was a bit soul, a bit rock, and often nicely funky underneath – and the British group really won lots of new ears on this side of the Atlantic with their bad-stepping approach to 70s pop! This self-titled album's one of the greatest ever from the group – and the cool compressed production further pushes their sound into really great territory – mushing the guitars up alongside the keyboards, squeezing the hip vocals of Errol Brown into a badass edge, and glamming things up ever so slightly. Arrangements are by the great John Cameron – a talent we've loved since his late 60s work with Donovan – and production is by the legendary Mickie Most, who's still burning strong here in the 70s. The album features the group's huge hit "You Sexy Thing", plus "Lay Me Down", "Amazing Skin Song", "Hello America", "The Street", "Call The Police", and "A Child's Prayer". LP, Vinyl record album

Lost pop psychedelia from the Canadian scene – with groovy arrangements that recall Nilsson, Donovan and the sunshine glory of the Association – plus some of the more driving efforts of groups like Love! Most of the tunes are as catchy as all get out – with swirling organs, fuzzed out guitars, and lushly trippy accents of horns, strings – with eccentric lyricism & group vocals. Titles include "Now That I'm A Man", "Get Away", "Eye To Eye", "Missouri", "Lazerander Flitchy", "Twilight Woman", "Close The Barn Door", "The People" and more – plus a wealth of bonus tracks that include "All Your Love" (as Shade Of Blond", "Laborer", "You Do Things", "She Says", "Citizen Freak" and more.

✨✧ 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
