George TiptonNilsson By Tipton ... CD
Warner/Wounded Bird, 1970. New Copy ... $3.99 11.99
Brilliant material from George Tipton – an arranger who's best known for his late 60s work backing up Harry Nilsson, working here in a set that returns the favor by offering up fresh new versions of Nilsson's tunes! The style is almost funky jazz at points – thanks to the presence of players like Howard Roberts and Dennis Budimir on guitars, and Artie Kane on piano – and Tipton definitely chooses some of the grooviest Nilsson tunes from the first few albums, which really seem to lend themselves to hip versions like these! There's a bit of chorus vocals at points, but not too much – and some of the best numbers come off like nuggets from a funky soundtrack of the late 60s. Titles include the break-heavy "Rainmaker" – plus "One", "Without Her", "Think About Your Troubles", "Poly High", "Mourning Glory Story", "Waiting", and "Nobody Cares About The Railroads Anymore".

Family TreeMiss Butters ... LP
RCA, 1968. Very Good ... $19.99
An incredible concept album from the end of the 60s – the only set we've ever seen by The Family Tree, but a record of baroque brilliance that sits beautifully with some of the best of its generation! The session was recorded at the same time as Nilsson's classic Aerial Ballet – with the same arranger, producer, studio, and session musicians – and it's got a similarly spacious feel that goes way beyond conventional pop. George Tipton's backings are simply breathtaking – a majestic filling out of the group's initial ideas for the record, blending core Sunshine Pop tunes with strings, horns, piano lines, and more – all produced to perfection. Titles include "Birthday/Dirgeday", "Sideshow", "Any Other Baby", "Simple Life", "Slippin Thru My Fingers", "Lesson Book Life", "Nine To Three", "Miss Butters", and "The Underture". LP, Vinyl record album
(Stereo Dynagroove pressing with deep groove. Cover has a trace of a price sticker, a promo stamp, and light wear.)
Also available Miss Butters (with bonus tracks) ... CD 14.99

Jose FelicianoFeliciano! ... LP
RCA, Late 60s. Sealed ... $19.99
An amazing record! By all rights, this shouldn't be so good – but it's an incredible album of haunting tracks that really has us coming back again and again over the years. The formula is simple: Jose plays late 60s pop tunes on acoustic guitar, and sings them in his spacey soulful voice. Backings are by George Tipton, plus a jazz combo made up of Jim Horn, Ray Brown, and Milt Holland – but it's Jose that really makes the whole thing amazing! His style of presentation is like anything else we can describe – filled with sadness and soul, but enough joy to keep moving forward. He takes tracks like "Light My Fire", "In My Life", "Sunny", and "California Dreamin", and transforms them into an amazing document of the darkness hidden behind the sun of southern California. "California Dreamin" is especially amazing – and Jose's version is one of the best soul songs of all time! LP, Vinyl record album
(Stereo pressing, still sealed!)

Leonard NimoyTouch Of Leonard Nimoy ... LP
Dot, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $19.99
Great stuff from Nimoy – and proof that his committment to being more than just a sci-fi actor was real, if not successful! The record features groovy pop and vocal tracks with arrangements by George Tipton, and a nice mod-ish feel that works well with Nimoy's Scott Walker-ish vocals and seriousness. The record features a number of very nice original tracks like "Contact", "Piece Of Hope", "The Man I Would Like To Be", and "Maiden Wine" – plus covers like "Cycles", "Nature Boy", and "A Trip To Nowhere". Very groovy! LP, Vinyl record album
(Stereo pressing. Cover is in nice shape!)

VenturesHawaii Five O ... LP
Liberty, Late 60s. Very Good ... $6.99
If anybody could take a great tune and make it better, it was The Ventures – as you'll hear on this album's killer version of "Hawaii Five O" – as well as a host of other groovy goodies too! The set's still got the core sound of the quartet – loads of fuzzy guitars riffing away over heavy drums – but there's also some fuller arrangements too, but handled by groovy guys Mike Melvoin and George Tipton – both of whom keep things swinging in a west coast 60s style that's very much like the best modes over at Capitol Records! In addition to "Hawaii Five O", other titles include "The Letter", "Don't Give In To Him", "A Summer Place", "Lovin Things", "Stormy", and "I Can Hear Music". LP, Vinyl record album
(Stereo pressing. Cover has light wear.)

✨✧ Martin DennyTaste Of India ... LP
Liberty/Pleasure For Music, 1968. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of the coolest-sounding Martin Denny albums of the 60s – a record that blends his earlier exotica sound with elements of Indian music, and maybe some great bossa nova currents too! For the set, Denny takes a tip from the sound of the East – adding some slight Indian flavors to his usual groove with the help of arranger George Tipton – who you might know from his work with Nilsson, or some of his own great instrumental records! Most of the music is still in the lush piano instrumental mode that Denny was using in these later Liberty years – but things are definitely groovy throughout, even if the Indian elements are sometimes used in ways that are more bossa than anything else. Maybe not the clearest picture you'll get of the sound of India in the 60s – but a sweet little record, with titles that include "Incense & Peppermints", "Live For Life", "Touch Of India", "Hypnotique", and "Indrani".
