✨✧ Lou RawlsLet Me Be Good To You ... LP
Philadelphia International, 1979. Very Good+ ... $4.99
One of Lou's classics for Philly International – a warm mix of smooth soul and adult vocals, handled with some great arrangements by Dexter Wansel and Thom Bell. There's less standout singles on this set than previous Philly records, but Lou's class and quality makes nearly every track come out wonderfully – a masterpiece of soulful understatement and grace. Titles include "We Keep Getting Closer To Being Further Apart", "Time Will Take Care Of Everything", "What's The Matter With The World", "Bark Bite", and "Lover's Holiday". LP, Vinyl record album

Lou RawlsLou Rawls Live (Philadelphia International) ... LP
Philadelphia International, 1978. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $1.99
Just in case you were fearing that Lou's late 70s talents were only part of the studio magic of Gamble & Huff, this set proves that Mr Rawls could really sparkle in a spontaneous live setting – working here with a totally top-shelf set of arrangements that display a really wide range of his talents. Lou's a consummate entertainer throughout, and slips into some great patter that recalls some of the best bits on his Capitol albums – working the audience with charm and wit, then slipping into a tune without missing a beat. Titles include "This One's For You", "Groovy People", "Lady Love", "Charge Card Blues Medley", "Stay Awhile With Me", "A Lovely Way To Spend An Evening", "You'll Never Find Another Love Like Mine", and "When You Say Budwiser, You've Said It All" – Lou's version of the famous 70s commercial, dedicated to his sponsor!

✨✧ Lou RawlsLou Rawls Live! (Capitol) ... LP
Capitol, 1966. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
One of the greatest albums to ever sum up the genius of Lou Rawls in the 60s – a brilliant live set put together with the talents of David Axelrod! The record perfectly captures the easy-going soul of Rawls in the early years – a natural approach to his music that made him one of the best singers of his genre at the time, and which comes out especially strong in the album's upbeat monologues, which are often delivered by Lou with musical accompaniment, then leap strongly into the lyrics of a tune. Backing is by a small jazzy combo that includes Herb Ellis on guitar and the great rhythm team of Jimmy Bond on bass and Earl Palmer on drums – both of whom bring a nice little groove to most of the album's numbers. Titles include "Street Corner Hustler's Blues/World Of Trouble", "Southside Blues/Tobacco Road", "The Shadow of Your Smile", "In The Evening When The Sun Goes Down", "I Got It Bad And That Ain't Good", and "The Girl From Ipanema".

Lou RawlsLove All Your Blues Away ... LP
Epic, 1986. Near Mint- ... $2.99
The voice of Lou Rawls is wonderful in so many different settings – in early gospel work with the Pilgrim Travelers, in 60s soul with HB Barnum and David Axelrod, and even hitting a Philly groove in the late 70s! Here, Lou takes on a whole new sound – working with more of an 80s soul approach set up by Jay Gradon and David Foster – smooth, but never soppy – and with nicely punctuated rhythms that have a midtempo stepping quality on most numbers – all to open up a new sort of groove for that magical Rawls vocal sound! Lou also brings some jazzy styles to play – almost previewing his work to come in the next few years – and titles include "Change Your Mind", "Are You With Me", "Love All Your Blues Away", "It Never Entered My Mind", "Learn To Love Again", and "We'll Be Together Again".

Lou RawlsNobody But Lou ... LP
Capitol, Late 60s. Very Good- ... $0.99
Great early stuff by Lou! No, the record doesn't have funky David Axelrod arrangements – but it does have some great jazzy backing by Benny Carter, which gives Lou's sweet soulful voice a great platform to riff off of. The record's one of Lou's jazziest, and it's mostly tight and swinging – without some of the cliches on other work of this sort. Titles include "Nobody But Me", "If I Had My Life To Live Over", "Power Of Love", "It's Monday Every Day", and "Two Tickets West". LP, Vinyl record album

Lou RawlsShades Of Blue ... LP
Philadelphia International, 1980. Near Mint- ... $2.99
One of Lou Rawls' last albums for Philly International, and a really nice departure from the style of Lou's earlier hits for the label. It's got a sophisticated jazzy mode that has Rawls often singing with sparer piano backings than the fuller strings of the late 70s – in a way that's sort of a return to the jazziness of some of his roots. A number of tracks are standards or familiar 70s numbers, done in modes that run from bluesy soul to mellower jazz vocals. Titles include "Did You Ever Love A Woman", "A Cottage For Sale", "Be Anything", "Think", and "I Go Crazy". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Lou RawlsSoulin' ... LP
Capitol, Late 60s. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
One of the best albums that Lou Rawls cut with the team of HB Barnum and David Axelrod – that incredible duo who made some of his 60s Capitol albums so great! The style here is wonderful – upbeat grooves from Barnum – who brings more soul into Lou's music than before – recorded by Axelrod with the right sort of sharpness and punch – that special quality he brought to Cannonball Adderley's 60s soul classics too! Rawls is really at home in the setting – stepping out in some points with these hip monologue passages that are as great as his singing – maybe even better, too – as they show a whole new side of Lou's personality – that badass, totally hip quality that people might never have expected from the early days. One of the best of these is the excellent "Old Man's Memories", about a guy sitting on a bench in Washington Park on the south side of Chicago, which then rolls into an amazing version of "It Was A Very Good Year". Other tunes have a great mix of soul and jazz – and titles include "Love Is A Hurtin Thing", "A Whole Lotta Woman", "Don't Explain", "Old Folks", and "Breaking My Back (Instead Of Using My Mind)". LP, Vinyl record album
(Rainbow label pressing with deep groove and a touch of pen. Cover has a name in pen on the back.)

Lou RawlsSouthside Blues/Shadow Of Your Smile ... 7-inch
Capitol, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $5.99
Fantastic work by Lou Rawls – recorded live and produced by David Axelrod! "Southside Blues" is mostly a monologue by Lou – really great stuff about our home, the southside of Chicago – and oddly, the single cuts out before the song actually begins! "Shadow Of Your Smile" is a great take on the 60s standard – very mellow, but with a nice spare slow groove once it gets going! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Lou RawlsThat's Lou – The Moving & Exciting Songs Of Mr Lou Rawls ... LP
Capitol, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $3.99
Great work from Lou Rawls on Capitol – one of his fine fine albums produced by David Axelrod, with that snapping tight groove that works amazingly well with his vocals! The arrangements are super-tight – jazzy backings that have Lou shifting between that monologue style that he virtually patented at the time, and straighter swinging tunes that have a heck of a lot of soul. Titles include "Problems", "When Love Goes Wrong", "Ear Bender Monologue", "What Are You Doing About Today", "The Love That I Give",a nd "Hard To Get Thing Called Love". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Lou RawlsBring It On Home ... LP
Capitol, Late 60s. Very Good ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A cool little record that was co-produced by David Axelrod and Muscle Shoals soul genius Rick Hall. The album's made up entirely of Sam Cooke tunes – save for "Coppin A Plea", which is one of those great little monologue tracks that you find on Lou's late 60s albums, and which provides a nice intro to the track "Cool Train", and the track "Can You Dig It", which gives a hip intro to Sam's "Take Me For What I Am". Not really a funky album, but with a great soulful finish. Other tracks include "Bring It On Home", "What Makes The Ending So Sad", and "Another Saturday Night". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some wear and a center split bottom seam.)

✨✧ David AxelrodSong Of Innocence ... LP
Capitol/Now Again, 1968. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
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! LP, Vinyl record album
(Fantastic reissue – new remastering, and a big booklet of notes on the music!)

✨✧ David AxelrodSongs Of Experience (with booklet) ... LP
Capitol/Now Again, 1969. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $21.99 27.98
One of the greatest albums ever by studio genius David Axelrod! The album's one of Axelrod's first on his own – cut for Capitol Records at a time when he was working with some of the label's biggest selling soul acts – like Cannonball Adderley and Lou Rawls – turning their already-successful sounds into super-hit material by adding some nice funky touches, and excellent baroque production. This album lets Axelrod fully explore his talents for larger studio arrangements and complex yet soulful instrumentation. The record is subtitled "an anthology of awareness after birth, based on the 18th century poems of William Blake" – and it features incredible arrangements conducted by Don Randi, played by a host of excellent LA jazz and studio players. The overall sound is spacey and dark, with nice touches of funk, and plenty of cool instrumental passages that have been sampled over the years by hip hoppers and other producers. Titles include "London", "The Fly", "The Human Abstract", "A Divine Image", and "The Sick Rose". Reissued with the original gatefold cover and everything! LP, Vinyl record album

VariousUltra Lounge Vol 5 – Wild Cool & Swingin ... CD
Capitol, Late 50s/1960s. Used ... $4.99
A vocal-heavy entry in the Ultra Lounge catalog – and one that follows the spirit of the single-artist titles in the Wild Cool & Swinging series from Capitol! The set's pretty darn upbeat – never too wild, nor too cool, and almost always swinging – and the tracks are mostly great bits from that late 50s/early 60s point when jazz vocals were grooving things up a bit more – shaking off some of the more romantic modes of previous years, and really packing a punch for the growing Vegas generation! Titles include "Fever" by Peggy Lee, "More" by Bobby Darin, "Dig That Crazy Chick" by Sam Butera, "Ain't That A Kick In The Head" by Dean Martin, "Closer To The Bone" by Louis Prima, "Nobody But Me" by Lou Rawls, "Little Girl" by Vic Damone, "LOVE" by Nat King Cole, "Hello Dolly" by Bobby Darin, "You'd Be So Nice To Come Home To" by Julie London, and "Danke Shoen" by Wayne Newton.

✨✧ Spanky WilsonSpankin' Brand New (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Mothers Records/P-Vine (Japan), 1969. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Heavy soul from the great Spanky Wilson – an album that explodes with energy right from the start – in a groove that definitely lives up to the title! Spanky's got a great mix of funk and class on this set – a punch in the rhythms at points, yet also a poise in the way she delivers the lyrics – a blend that's a bit like Marlena Shaw in her earlier years – and set to some killer arrangements from the great HB Barnum! Barnum gives the record all the cool punch of his great 60s work with Lou Rawls – and nearly all the material was written by the obscure Howlett Smith – an excellent lost writer who had a real talent for coming up with cool little soul songs that rise above the usual bag of his generation. This material works great for Spanky, and together, the pair, along with Barnum, cook up a unique lost soul treat! Titles include "Apartment 101", "On The Morning After", "The Other Girl", "You're Gonna Miss Me", "Love Has Me By The Hand", and "Mighty Great Feeling". CD

Nothing mello about this sweet little set – because the tunes are loud, nasty, and filled with plenty of sharp edges!
