Johnny BristolMGM Collection (Hang On In There Baby/Feeling The Magic) (limited edition with bonus track) ... CD
MGM/Hip-O Select, 1974/1975. Used ... $33.99
Under-discovered 70s soul genius from Johnny Bristol – an artist who's best known for his early work in the Motown studios, but who steps out here as an incredible soul singer in his own right! Johnny's work here has an undeniably funky quality – a full, rich groove that blends together soaring strings and tighter rhythms – almost taking a cue from the blacksploitation soundtracks of the time, but focusing that groove into some really tight soul tracks – sung with a voice that should have made him huge! There's a great blend here of the rough and the smooth – and the style's almost like mixing together Barry White and Sam Dees – with the full funky arrangements of the former, and all the great songwriting and vocal delivery of the latter. The CD features the full tracks from 2 albums – Feeling The Magic and Hang On In There Baby – plus a rare single-only version of "Hang On In There Baby", sung by Bristol with Alton McClain. Other titles include "Go On & Dream", "Hang On In There Baby", "Woman Woman", "Lusty Lady", "I'm Just A Loser", "I Got Your Number", "It Don't Hurt No More", "Love Me For A Reason", and "I Wouldn't Change A Thing".

One of the groovier examples of late 60s psychedelia on the MGM label – one of a pair from the Boston area's Beacon Street Union! The Clown Died In Marvin Gardens has more orchestrated arrangements than the group's other album from the period, but it's no less adventurous, strange or diversely influenced! Titles include the title track, plus "The Clown's Overture", "Angus Of Aberdeen", "A Not Very August Afternoon", "Now I Taste The Tears" and groovy covers of "Blue Suede Shoes" and "Baby Please Don't Go".

Every Mothers' SonEvery Mothers' Son ... LP
MGM, 1967. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $6.99
Great grooves from Every Mothers' Son – cool, catchy numbers that have a wonderfully sunny feel overall – and a spare approach that's a bit different than most of the group's contemporaries! The drums seem much more up in the mix than usual for this sort of work – snapping with a jaunty quality amidst guitar that's a bit more laidback, and harmonized vocals that have that perfect folk-into-pop mode that other Sunshine Pop groups were using at the time. There's a few blue notes here and there, which give the music some of the darker undercurrents you might hear in The Left Banke – and titles include "Come On Down To My Boat", "For Brandy", "I Won't", "Allison Dozer", "Sittin Here", "Come On Queenie", and "Didn't She Lie".

✨✧ Gloria GaynorExperience Gloria Gaynor ... LP
MGM, 1975. Very Good ... $1.99
Warmly gliding soul from Gloria Gaynor – a great little set that has none of the cliches that sometimes mar our memory of Gloria's work, awash in tight arrangements that mix equal part disco and mainstream soul! Much of the record is upbeat, but never over the top – and even the longer tracks have a hook-heavy simplicity that's really great – a bit like the move into club that some of the Motown artists were also making at the time. Meco handled some of the production and arrangements, and titles include Casanova Brown", "(If You Want It) Do It Yourself", "How High The Moon", "The Prettiest Face I've Ever Seen", "What'll I Do", "Tell Me How", "I'm Still Yours", and "Walk On By".

✨✧ Gloria GaynorNever Can Say Goodbye ... LP
MGM, 1975. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
The start of a very successful run for Gloria Gaynor – a seminal bit of crossover 70s soul – one that perfectly linked the dancefloor with the airwaves, and managed to take on more than a few living rooms as well! Gloria's not entirely in full blown disco-diva mode yet, and works here with a soaring Philly-styled groove – of the sort you'd hear with groups like First Choice or Three Degrees – almost grounded a bit in earlier female soul, especially in the vocals and overall changes in the grooves – yet sparkled up plenty with some fuller, richer 70s arrangements. Those are handled by Norman Harris and Harold Wheeler – who do plenty to warm up the production by Meco – and the set includes the stunning 6 minute version of Gloria's big hit "Never Can Say Goodbye", plus "All I Need Is Your Sweet Lovin", "We Belong Together", "Real Good People", "Honey Bee", and "Reach Out I'll Be There".

Lee HazlewoodLee Hazlewoodism – Its Cause & Cure (with bonus tracks) ... CD
MGM/Light In The Attic, 1966. New Copy ... $13.99 16.98
We love Lee Hazlewood – and this album is one of his best! The record's a stunning batch of Lee's original compositions – all wonderful examples of the way that Lee could take a postwar fascination with Western themes and images, and turn it on itself to reveal the anxieties and frustrations of the 60s generation – all with a smooth presentation and near-perfect backings from the legendary Billy Strange! If you ever needed proof of why Lee Hazlewood's so great, this album may well be it – a record we'd gladly trade for a dozen by other 60s singer/songwriters. Titles include "The Girls In Paris", "After Six", "In Our Time", "Jose", "The Old Man & His Guitar", "Dark In My Heart", and "The Nights". Fantastic stuff! Great reissue features three bonus tracks from Lee Hazlewood's Woodchucks – "Frenesi", "Muchacho", and "Batman". CD

Lee HazlewoodSomething Special (with bonus tracks) ... CD
MGM/Light In The Attic, Late 60s. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Pure genius from Lee Hazlewood – one of his gems cut for MGM in the 60s, and a session that features some great small combo backings! The feel here is almost a jazz-inflected take on the slight country tinge of Lee's other work – a style that's as sophisticated and unique as Hazlewood's well-penned lyrics and amazing vocals. Lee's completely at home here – working with the great engineer Eddie Brackett, who's sound for his vocals is just about as great as could be hoped – the matchless blend of ice and embers that perfectly defines the Hazlewood sound. All tunes are originals by Lee – and tracks include "Shades", "This Town", "Stone Cold Blues", "Child", "Little War", "Hands", "Fort Worth", "Them Girls", and "Mannford Oklahoma". Features two bonus tracks – "Moochie Ladeux" and "The Lone Ranger". CD

Pure AM radio pop from the glory days of MGM! Pop impresario Tony Scotti was one of the harmony vocalists who comprised Heaven Bound – and he produced the album with a sweet sound that's part late Beach Boys, part 70s Four Seasons, and part LA electric soundtrack. The record's got some real charms, and plenty of breathy 70s pop song hooks. Includes versions of Neil Young's "On The Way Home" and The Beatles' "I Will" – plus "He'd Rather Have The Rain", "I Kept On Loving You", "Five Hundred Miles", and "Come Run With Me".

Page MortonMay You Always ... LP
MGM, 1961. Near Mint- ... $18.99
Page Morton's floating in a sea of red on the cover of this rare album – and the music has her swimming in a similarly watery style too! Arrangements are handled by Leo Addeo – who you might know from late 50s tropical and exotica sides – and although his approach here is more in keeping with a vocal session, he also still shows his great ear for those languidly seeping tones around the corners of the edges – a feel of flow that draws us in even before Page's vocals pick up the lyrics! There's a bit of organ used at times to emphasize this approach, and some occasional other exotic instrumentation too – on titles that include "Bill", "Don't Blame Me", "That Old Feeling", "May You Always", "Until The Real Thing Comes Along", and "Paradise".

A pretty serious orchestral score by Alex North, designed to accompany an ABC documentary about the changes in Africa during the 60s. Given that the documentary takes a look at the emerging politics and cultures in post-colonial Africa, it's amazing how white and western the soundtrack is – a seven part orchestral-suite titled "Africa", all strings and dramatic moods, with no attempt whatsoever to bring in African styles of music or instrumentation!

OvationsHooked On A Feeling ... LP
MGM, 1972. Very Good+ ... $24.99
Some of the warmest Memphis soul ever recorded – a really classic set from The Ovations, done in a style that's really unique! The vibe here is different from the sound of Stax, as lead singer Louis Williams has a lot of Sam Cooke in his style – a warmly bubbling quality that's as personal as it is polished, and which is set up here with some buoyant backings that glide along wonderfully – still with enough depth to show the Memphis roots of the group, but in ways that really get past some of the cliches that were starting to hit that scene. Dan Greer handled production, and is no doubt due credit for the album's quality – and titles include a classic version of "Hooked On a Feeling", plus "One In A Million", "Take It From One Who Knows", "Touching Me", "So Nice To Be Loved By You", "You'll Never Know", and "Don't Break Your Promise".

Gordon Parks/OC SmithShaft's Big Score ... LP
MGM, 1972. Very Good+ ... $29.99
One of the more unusual albums in the Shaft Legacy – put together by photographer/director Gordon Parks! After directing the first Shaft film, and letting Isaac Hayes have such a big hit with the music, Parks decided to handle the music for this sequel himself – and scored the whole thing with just as much skill as Hayes! The music is conducted by Dick Hazard, and produced by jazzman Tom McIntosh – but all the scoring is done by Parks, and he stays very true to the funky vibe set up by Hayes. OC Smith sings the vocal theme follow-up – called "Blowin Your Mind", which has a very similar groove to "Shaft" – plus two other surprisingly nice numbers, the funky "Move On In" and the mellow "Don't Misunderstand". Side two features the stunning "Symphony for Shafted Souls", a 13 minute instrumental suite that has lots of groovy chase themes laid out by fast wah wah guitar and horn riffing!

Excellent groovy Latin from Ray Rivera – not totally authentic, but who cares? The record's got that groovy mix of styles that you'd find on a Verve album from the time – blending smooth Latin with touches of easy, jazz, and funk in a bass-heavy sound that's peppered with loads of catchy hooks. Includes "Hard Hats", which begins with some wonderful echoey drums, and the tasty originals "Afro Girl", "Sumptin Like Dat", "I'll Return", and "Guava". Very cool stuff – and the kind of record we used to pass up because it wasn't "real" enough, but which we now love for that quality! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Toshiko AkiyoshiUnited Notions ... LP
MGM/Metro, 1958. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A unique early large group session from pianist Toshiko Akioshi – recorded with a hip group of international players! The record's almost a precursor of some of Akioshi's better-known big band work of later years – but it's got more of a small combo feel overall, thanks to a tight septet lineup that includes Toshiko on piano, Nat Adderley on cornet, Rolf Kuhn on alto and clarinet, Bobby Jaspar on tenor and flute, Rene Thomas on guitar, John Drew on bass, and Bert Dahlander (aka Bart Dahl) on drums. Doc Severinson stands in on trumpet for Adderley on a few numbers – but the real stars of the show are the reedmen, who get plenty of space to do their thing, and seem to show Toshiko's early preference for sharp-edged solos with a lot of feeling. Titles include "Sukiyaki", "Swinging Till The Girls Come Home", "United Notions", and "Civilized Folk". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Joey HeathertonJoey Heatherton Album (limited edition with bonus tracks) ... CD
MGM/Hip-O Select, 1965/1972. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Was there a sexier 70s celebrity than Joey Heatherton? It's hard to think so – and the cover of this one is more than enough proof that she was America's greatest answer to Brigitte Bardot! And while we certainly remember her from countless variety show appearances at the time, it's actually a bit hard to remember her as a singer (something that's due, no doubt, to the fact that we were so busy looking – not listening!) This great Hip-O set nicely corrects that fact – by bringing together Joey's full 10 track MGM album from 1972, plus some even more obscure singles recorded for Coral and Decca in the mid 60s! The Joey Heatherton Album was done in a sexy sort of 70s pop mode – slight country touches on a few tunes, but mostly glistening adult-styled backings from the team of Tony Scotti and Tommy Oliver. Tunes on that one include "God Only Knows", "It's Not Easy", "Right Or Wrong", "I'm Sorry", "Gone", "Say Hello", and "Someone To Watch Over Me". But almost even better are the rare early singles – 11 more numbers recorded in the mid 60s, and done in a trumpeting girl pop style that actually has plenty of traces of the Brit female sound of the time. Joey's really really great on these numbers – perky, poppy, and still ultra-sexy! Titles include "That's How It Goes", "Live & Learn", "Tomorrow Is Another Day", "My Blood Runs Cold", "Growing Up Is Learning To Say Goodbye", and "But He's Not Mine". CD

✨✧ Johnny PateOutrageous ... CD
MGM/Dusty Groove, 1970. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Funky magic from maestro Johnny Pate – a record that's very much in the same spirit as his blacksploitation soundtracks for Shaft In Africa or Brother On The Run! The style here is quite similar – full orchestrations, scored by Johnny with an all-soul feel – and played by a crack lineup of jazz and soul instrumentalists – including Richard Tee on organ, Bernard Purdie on drums, Montego Joe on congas, Jerome Richardson on flute, and Cornell Dupree and Joe Beck on guitars! The guitars really rip back and forth nicely in the set – searing one minute, choppy the next – and sometimes as much a part of the rhythms as the bass, drums, and percussion! Pate also draws a bit on his earlier years in jazz – using Richardson's flute to bring some Lalo Schifrin-like sensitivity to some tracks, and some Roland Kirk-like soul to a few others – working in a depth of sound that's way more than just straight jazz or instrumental soul. All titles are originals by Johnny, who also arranged and produced the set – and tracks include "No Hangups", "Sangria", "Bound To Happen", "That Ain't Too Cool", "Totally Unexpected", "You're Starting Too Fast", "Frustrating Disappointment", and "Constant Wind".

MGM/Quartet (Spain), 1974. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An excellent 70s funky thriller soundtrack! This one's been a lost gem for sample freaks for years – and no wonder, since it's filled with funky riffing, tight rhythm tracks, and fierce horn blasts. The score was written by David Shire to accompany a thriller about some guys who hijack a subway in New York – and it feels like similar work from the time by Quincy Jones or Roy Budd. The tracks really vary in length – from short moody atmospheric numbers, to longer flat-out jazzy ones – and the soundtrack's just about impossible to find in any other form. Titles include "Goodbye Hippie", "Mini Manhunt", "The Taking", "More Taking", "Money Montage", "I Am Police Officer", and "Blue Green Talk". CD

✨✧ David ShireTaking Of Pelham One Two Three – Original Soundtrack (180 gram pressing) ... LP
MGM/Quartet (Spain), 1974. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An excellent 70s funky thriller soundtrack! This one's been a lost gem for sample freaks for years – and no wonder, since it's filled with funky riffing, tight rhythm tracks, and fierce horn blasts. The score was written by David Shire to accompany a thriller about some guys who hijack a subway in New York – and it feels like similar work from the time by Quincy Jones or Roy Budd. The tracks really vary in length – from short moody atmospheric numbers, to longer flat-out jazzy ones – and the soundtrack's just about impossible to find in any other form. Titles include "Goodbye Hippie", "Mini Manhunt", "The Taking", "More Taking", "Money Montage", "I Am Police Officer", and "Blue Green Talk". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ War & Eric BurdonBlack Man's Burdon ... LP
Far Out/MGM, 1971. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A surprisingly great pairing of talents – the post-Animals Eric Burdon on vocals, and early grooves from Cali funk legends War – coming together here in a blend that still holds up beautifully after all these years! Burdon was already getting pretty soulful on the last few Animals albums on MGM – and he really advances that style here when working with War's great grooves – some of the grittiest, nastiest, most stretched out work of their career – especially on some of the album's nicely long tracks. There's some nice Latin currents to the music at times, and the group vocalize alongside Burdon at times – and titles include a long version of "Paint It Black", plus "Bare Back Ride", "Sun/Moon", "Pretty Colors", "Gun", "Nuts Seeds & Life", "They Can't Take Away Our Music", and "Spirit".

AB Skhy are one of those totally great late 60s groups who never fully got their due – overflowing with instrumental chops and bearing a really sharp sound – but never hitting the mark that they should have with this well-done debut! The group push blues influences into psych, and come up with a heady brew that's really wonderful – filled with the usual guitar, bass, and drums – but also given lots of wicked organ work from Howard Wales – who some folks know for a later recording with Jerry Garcia! Everyone is completely top-shelf here – and the group bring in some horns and guest harmonica from Jim Liban – really pushing their sound on titles that include "Camel Back", "24 Hours", "Upsets Me Baby", "Of All Sad Words", "Understand", and "Love Isn't".

A strange one for Legrand – a soundtrack written for an obscure action film that starred Rock Hudson, Ernest Borgnine, Jim Brown, and Patrick McGoohan! The music is mostly orchestral and dramatic – but given Legrand's genius, it's touched with warm chromatic elements that occasionally show his roots in other styles. The whole thing's packaged in a great gatefold cover with photos on the inside, and a dramatic 70s paperback-style painting on the back.

MGM/Big Pink (South Korea), 1970. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A lost hard rock gem from a Milwaukee quartet – produced by Kim Fowley with a sound that's as raw and garagey as his best indie productions from the mid 60s! These guys have all sorts of familiar elements in the mix – an influence from blues, a trippier style of guitar, and some nicely soulful currents in the vocals of Den Geyer – but there's a special brew that takes all of these qualities into special territory, making for the kind of standout set that was mysteriously overlooked at the time – but which makes for one of those rare treasures that lie far below the giants of the classic rock generation. Titles include "Gotta Be Free", "Hope For The Future", "Pearl", "Lady In The Dark", "I'm Walkin", "Trackin Shoes", "Sweet Mother Earth", and the jazzy guitar tune "Gazebo" – dedicated to the great Gabor Szabo!

✨✧ Erroll GarnerCampus Concert ... CD
MGM/Mack Avenue, 1962. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An unusual 60s album that tries to link piano legend Erroll Garner to the crowds on the college campuses of the time – but with a vibe that's very different than most of the modern jazz sets that were usually issued in a similar format! This set was recorded mostly at Purdue University, and has Garner playing in a mode that's completely classic, and completely on fire – romping through tunes with this amazing deftness, alongside help from bassist Eddie Calhoun and drummer Kelly Martin. As with most Garner albums of this time, the pianist could almost be solo – as Erroll's strength and vitality on the keys is amazing – and the piano sound really seems to lead the bass and drums – not the other way around. Titles include "Mambo Erroll", "Stardust", "These Foolish Things", "My Funny Valentine", "La Petite Mambo", and "In The Still Of The Night". CD

MGM/Bear Family (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Overlooked Texas genius from Buck Griffin – a singer who first recorded for the famous Lin label, then got a shot at the bigtime on MGM! Buck's maybe the epitome of a local vocal star – a singer who was on the radio daily, and who was able to absorb the best of the bigger early 50s acts – then sling things forth with a spirit that was all his own – this great mix of heartbreaking vocals and hard-edge twang – which worked equally well on the mellow cuts and the more upbeat numbers! There's some occasional rocking guitar in the mix, which only further emphasizes the strength of Buck's vocals – and although many of these tracks are later than the classic years, there's a strong hillbilly vibe on many of the numbers. Titles include "Go Stop Go", "Broken Heart With Alimony", "Stutterin Papa", "Girl In 1209", "Meadowlark Boogie", "Cochise", "Let's Elope Baby", "Next To Mine", "Lookin For The Green", "Twenty Six Steps", and "First Man To Stand On The Moon".

MGM, 1966. Sealed Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
One of the greatest spy soundtracks of the 60s – a very groovy batch of tracks written for Stefanie Powers' brief TV show, The Girl From UNCLE! The music here is better than the male version of the UNCLE franchise – hip 60s spy themes, done in a groovy style for the television audience – often a cool blend of swirling strings, jazzy orchestrations, and some very hip rhythms! Dave Grusin penned the music, and Teddy Randazzo arranged – bringing his 60s soul background into the work in a really great way – emphasizing the grooves even more than on other records of this nature, in a way that's made the set very sought after in the crate-digging scene. There's plenty of nice 60s elements – keyboards, wordless vocals, funky flute, and other hip effects – and titles include "Movin On", "Out Of The Frying Pan", "The Girl From UNCLE", "Sneaky Search", "The Countess", and "Bomb Scare".

Orpheus are clearly good enough on their own – a great ear for mixing trippier touches and catchier lyrics – but the added touches from Lorber really send things over the top – almost as if he's found a rock group to expand the concept of his Lotus Palace album – a bit in the way that Glitterhouse worked so well with Bob Crewe!

Verve, 1963. Very Good+ ... $11.99
Count Basie and Quincy Jones were always a mighty mighty combination – and there's no finer proof of that fact than this sweet little set! Quincy had a way of swinging Basie's group even more than Neal Hefti did – really letting the piano step out front, and swinging the larger horn parts in this mode that was extremely soulful, yet never with the hoke that could sometimes mar a Basie set – a style that was very 60s groovy, and which really helped breathe new life into the Count's ensemble! The album's a killer all the way through – and the tunes are all originals – written by Quincy, and arranged especially for the set – great little numbers that include "Nasty Magus", "Dum Dum", "Boody Rumble", "Count Em", "Belly Roll", and "Lil Ol Groovemaker Basie"!

Barbara BrownGot To Be Somebody – The XL Sessions – 60s Memphis Gold ... LP
Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $19.99 22.99
A great full length collection of work by Memphis singer Barbara Brown – a vocalist who appeared both as a solo act, and with her sisters – on a variety of singles for labels like Cadet, Atlantic, Tower, and MGM in the late 60s and early 70s! Barbara's got a deep, rich voice that's clearly schooled in gospel, but pointed towards more secular ends – an approach that's very much in keeping with the best late 60s wave of soul from Atlantic Records, and which is carried off here with a sharpness and precision that's simply mindblowing! Why Brown never scored bigger is a real mystery to us, because these tunes come off like the cream of the crop of southern soul at the end of the 60s – not just obscurities for obscurity sake, but some of the highest level of soul a female soul singer could hope for at the time! Titles include "Can't Find No Happiness", "Plenty Of Room", "A Great Big Thing", "Things Have Gone To Pieces", "Man Around The House", "Play Thing", "I'm Gonna Start A War", "I Don't Want To Have To Wait", "It Hurts Me So Much", "Got To Be Somebody", "There's A Look On Your Face", and "If I Can't Run To You I'll Crawl".

Duke Ellington & Johnny HodgesBlues Summit (Side By Side/Back To Back) ... LP
Verve, 1959. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $19.99
A great little album that builds on the strength of Johnny Hodges' small group 50s sessions for Verve – and which lets Duke Ellington in on some of the action! The format is nicely stripped-down throughout – featuring Hodges in sextet and septet formation with players that include Ben Webster, Roy Eldridge, Les Spann, Lawrence Brown, and Jo Jones. And while Duke's actually only on piano on some of the tracks on the album (Billy Strayhorn handles keys on the others), the sessions are still a great example of small combo Ellingtonia at its best! Titles include "Ruint", "Stompy Jones", "Big Shoe", "Going Up", "Just A Memory", and "You Need to Rock". Added to the original album is a full bonus album here – done in a similar format, and titled Back To Back – with titles that include "Weary Blues", "Royal Garden Blues", "Loveless Love", "St Louis Blues", and "Wabash Blues".

Dizzy GillespieNewport Years Volume V (aka Dizzy Gillespie At Newport) ... LP
Verve, 1957. Near Mint- ... $9.99
One of the best albums ever in Verve's classic set of recordings from the 1957 Newport Jazz Festival – a set that captures the Dizzy Gillespie group of the decade in top live formation! The ensemble here is plenty hip – with a young Lee Morgan joining Dizzy on trumpet, and a host of other great players who include Melba Liston and Al Grey on trombones, Benny Golson and Billy Mitchell on saxes, and rhythm from the trio of Wynton Kelly on piano, Paul West on bass, and Charlie Persip on drums! Although big, the band often had the sharper groove of a small combo – and even when hitting some older moments from Gillespie's earlier years, they still kept a modern edge in their approach – thanks to arrangements by AK Salim, Tadd Dameron, Benny Golson, Quincy Jones, and Dizzy himself. Titles include "School Days", "I Remember Clifford", "Manteca", "Dizzy's Blues", "Cool Breeze", and "Doodlin". LP, Vinyl record album

The feel here is quite easygoing and relaxed – with small group backing behind Billie's vocals, which themselves are recorded cleanly and clearly throughout. One side features backing by a combo that includes Wynton Kelly on piano, Kenny Burrell on guitar, Charlie Shavers on trumpet, and Paul Quinichette on tenor – and the other features a group that includes Bobby Tucker on piano, Charlie Shavers on trumpet, Barney Kessel on guitar, and the great Willie Smith on alto sax. Titles include plenty of classics – including "God Bless The Child", "Strange Fruit", "Lady Sings The Blues", "No Good Man", "Good Morning Heartache", "I Must Have That Man", and "Trav'lin' Light".

Sammy Davis Jr. and Jerry Butler contribute two other great tracks (Butler does "A Prayer", one of his best 70's tracks), and the whole thing's a groovy comp of stuff on the MGM/Pride label!

Wonderfully groovy work from the team of Jackie Cain & Roy Kral – a set that has the pair moving into much hipper modes for the 60s, and really taking off from the greatness of earlier records! Backing is still by Roy's core trio, with acoustic piano at the lead – but the addition of electric bass to the lineup really helps the tunes step along nicely – hitting a groove not heard before from Jackie & Roy, with results that are completely sublime! There's a definite bossa influence that comes into some of the best tracks – a skipping, lilting approach to rhythm that's made even better by the unique dual vocals of the team, especially when they're singing wordlessly. But even when lyrical vocals are part of the mix, the sound is still great too – and Jackie & Roy have a way of bringing charm to a tune that few other singers can touch! Titles include "Lovesick", "A Big Beautiful Ball", "You Really Started Something", "Let's Begin", "Mimosa & Me", "Corcovado", "Samba Triste", and "The World Is Your Balloon". LP, Vinyl record album

Killer work from one of the most important singers in the years before soul music – the mighty Clyde McPhatter, who was first a member of The Dominoes, then started The Drifters, and soon became a great solo act on his own! There's a few cuts here from Clyde's vocal group recordings, but the set strongly focuses on those solo numbers that really let his voice take off – an amazing approach to music that was freer and more biting than some of the singers of the R&B generation – and which definitely laid the groundwork for so many soul artist in years to come! The package features a whopping 34 tracks in all, work from both his Atlantic, MGM, and Mercury recordings – all served up with the usual great Bear Family notes and presentation. Titles include "Three Thirty Three", "What'd I Say", "Deep Sea Ball", "Let The Boogie Woogie Roll", "I'm Gonna Be A Wheel Some Day", "Ta Ta", "Since You've Been Gone", "Climb That Mountain Of Love", "This Is Not Goodbye", "I'm Movin On", "Stop", "I Can't Stand Up Alone", "Can It Be Wrong", "Thirty Days", "Take A Step", "Lover Please", "Up To My Ears In Tears", and "Same Time Same Place".

Nelson gives the set more of a "punch" than some of Montgomery's other Verve records – and the style uses a tight brace of brass and woodwinds as the backdrop for Montgomery's moody solo work. The tracks have a nice edgey quality, but also maintain a smooth stepping quality as well – and Wes' tone, as always, is sublime!

A really wonderful collection of live work from Gerry's early 60s Concert Jazz Band – a really forward-thinking large group that was one of Mulligan's greatest accomplishments of the time! In some ways, the ensemble worked in a sound that was like that of Mulligan's small group recordings of the 50s – with the horns moving around in free space, interacting beautifully in a fresh, modern, unfettered style. Gerry himself plays a bit of piano on the session, but most of the strength of the set is from the horn interplay from the larger group – from players that include Gene Quill, Bob Brookmeyer, Nick Travis, Gene Allen, Conte Candoli, and star soloist Zoot Sims. Material was recorded on a European tour of the time – and titles include "Go Home", "Barbara's Theme", I Want To Live", "Red Door", and "Apple Core". LP, Vinyl record album

Lovely work from Anita O'Day – a relatively obscure session that has her working with west coast arrangements from the pen of Bill Holman. The sound of the album's almost in the mood of a classic 50s Capitol album by June Christy – with a sophisticated and jazzy sound that O'Day didn't always have, and which could sometimes get lost on her more gimmicky albums. Tracks have a wonderful glide and an easy-going approach – and titles include "Easy Living", "Can't We Be Friends", "It Could Happen To You", "Avalon", "The Party's Over", "Blue Champagne", and "Indian Summer".

✨✧ Oscar PetersonIn A Romantic Mood ... LP
Verve, 1955. Very Good- ... $5.99
We love Oscar Peterson with strings – a setting he never got to use that often, given the popularity of his famous trio recordings! When Oscar gets set up with strings, he seems to play even more freely than with a combo – let loose from rhythm a bit more than before, and instead focusing strongly on melody – which often comes off with a warmly lyrical feel. This album's a rare entry into the Peterson strings category – a great 50s date with Russ Garcia backing Oscar up – giving the album just the right mix of mellow and modern to match Peterson's magical work on the keys! In a way, the album's a link between two different styles of 50s jazz – some of the warmer string-laden work of the piano mainstream, and some of the sharper sounds of the Verve modern approach to the style – served up here by Oscar in ways that bring both modes together perfectly, with just the right dash of both. Titles include "Laura" and "Tenderly" – both tracks you'd have to have on an album like this – plus "Black Coffee", "Ruby", "Stella By Starlight", "A Sunday Kind Of Love", and "I Thought About You".

Nelson is working here at the height of his powers – backing Smith with a large group, but in a way that only seems to free him up to solo even more – pushing the tunes with an undeniable power from the all-star band, as Jimmy takes off on flights of soulful fancy over the top! Side two features some more stripped-down solo work – in the manner of Jimmy's later Blue Note sides – and the set includes the hit single "Walk On The Wild Side", plus the tracks "Bashin", "Step Right Up", and "Beggar For The Blues".

A key slice of work from the too-short career of the legendary Hank Williams – recordings he did for a regular radio show sponsored by Mother's Best Flour in Nashville during the year 1951 – a time when Hank was riding high with his talents, before leaving our planet all too soon! The work here is a nice change from some of Williams' studio records, and his other live performances – as there's a relaxed, easygoing quality that really gets at the kind of charms that set Hank apart from the rest – and which must have been wonderful coming into a home over a broadcast show like this! Because the show was regular, Hank didn't just perform his hits, but also handled a wider range of material – which makes the Mother's Best recordings so important to his catalog – as together, the tracks offer up almost as much as he recorded for MGM on record.

This second volume features 52 tracks from the show – titles that include "Dear Brother", "I'll Have A New Life", "Deck Of Cards", "Tennessee Border", "Where The Soul Of Man Never Dies", "Farther Along", "Just When I Needed You", "Why Should We Try Anymore", "Drifting Too Far From The Shore", "I'll Fly Away", "Cold Cold Heart", "Long Gone Lonesome Blues", "My Sweet Love Ain't Around", "Moanin The Blues", and "Wait For The Light To Shine".

Hank WilliamsPictures From Life's Other Side Vol 3 ... CD
BMG, 1951. New Copy 2CD ... $18.99 19.99
A key slice of work from the too-short career of the legendary Hank Williams – recordings he did for a regular radio show sponsored by Mother's Best Flour in Nashville during the year 1951 – a time when Hank was riding high with his talents, before leaving our planet all too soon! The work here is a nice change from some of Williams' studio records, and his other live performances – as there's a relaxed, easygoing quality that really gets at the kind of charms that set Hank apart from the rest – and which must have been wonderful coming into a home over a broadcast show like this! Because the show was regular, Hank didn't just perform his hits, but also handled a wider range of material – which makes the Mother's Best recordings so important to his catalog – as together, the tracks offer up almost as much as he recorded for MGM on record. This third volume features 43 tracks from the show – including "Dust On The Bible", "I Dreamed About Mama Last Night", "Have I Told You Lately That I Love You", "I'm Gonna Sing", "Hey Good Lookin", "Just Waitin", "Crazy Heart", "Lonesome Whistle", "Cherokee Boogie", "That Beautiful Home", and even Hank doing an advertisement for Mother's Best!

✨✧ Gene Ammons & Sonny StittBoss Tenors ... LP
Verve, 1961. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Gene Ammons and Sonny Stitt go head to head in this classic album of tracks that perfectly captures the joy and fury of their live performances from years before! The record was cut in Chicago with a very hard rhythm section that includes John Houston on piano, Charles Williams on bass, and George Brown on drums – and it's way heavier than the usual Verve "meeting of the masters" session, and feels more like a record that should have been issued on Prestige or Argo. Both players are impeccable, and the solos stretch out for a long long very live time. Titles include "Blues Up & Down", "The One Before This", and "Counter Clockwise" – but these guys even groove amazingly on standards like "Autumn Leaves" and "No Greater Love". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Bill EvansBill Evans Album ... CD
Columbia, Early 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A pretty sublime album from Bill Evans – one that has him playing both Fender Rhodes and Steinway, overdubbed together, for an effect that's laidback and completely wonderful! The Fender Rhodes was a natural choice for Evans – given his fluid lyrical style, and on this set (and on his equally great record for MGM) Bill opens up with an approach that really suits him well. Each track features him shifting back and forth between electric and acoustic modes, dancing from one to the other in a way that makes the instruments come together beautifully – supported by some incredibly soulful bass work by Eddie Gomez, and drums by Marty Morrell. Titles include "Sugar Plum", "Funkallero", "Waltz for Debby", "TTT", "Re: Person I Knew", and "Comrade Conrad". CD

✨✧ Ella FitzgeraldElla At Duke's Place ... LP
Verve, 1965. Very Good+ Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A beautiful classic from mid 60s Verve – and the kind of a session that we wouldn't have expected to come off so well! In a style they were using with older artists at the time, Verve brought Ella and Duke into the studio together – with Duke's band and compositions providing the structure of the set, and Ella handling vocals. The tunes are mostly Ellington classics, but they provide a nice change of pace for the Fitzgerald of the 60s – taking Ella into more sophisticated territory on some darker themes that really surprised us. Players are all of the Ellington stalwarts of the time – and titles include "Imagine My Frustration", "Duke's Place", "What Am I Here For", "Azure", "A Flower Is A Lovesome Thing", "Passion Flower", and "Something To Live For". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Stan GetzBig Band Bossa Nova ... LP
Verve, 1962. Very Good Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An overlooked gem from the Verve bossa years – a session that features the sweet tenor sax work of Stan Getz, alongside some swinging bossa arrangements from the great Gary McFarland! Given the strength of Gary's own work for Verve at the time, it's no surprise that he's a perfect accompanist for Getz on the session – working with just the right amount of space to let Stan stand out from the pack, and really creating a great blend of Brazilian rhythms and some of the modder 60s styles at Verve. Gary contributed a number of originals to the session too – and titles include "Bim Bom", "Manlancolico", "Balanco No Samba", "Noite Triste", "Chega De Saudade", and "Manha De Carnival". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Gigi GryceGigi Gryce ... CD
Fresh Sound (Spain), 1958. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A really incredible album by Gigi, and certainly one of his rarest! Recorded during the brief time when MGM/Metro was putting out great jazz, the record features Gigi playing as the main soloist in a horn section made up entirely of himself – using the (then) new technology of multi-tracking! Hank Jones, Milt Hinton, and Osie Johnson are on rhythm – but the real treat is Gigi, whose solos are crisp and raw, and filled with those fantastic tones he was getting at this point in his career. Titles include "Blues March", "Rich & Creamy", "Lullaby For Milkman", and "Baba's Blues". CD

✨✧ Johnny Hodges & Earl Fatha HinesStride Right ... LP
Verve, 1966. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great little trad session – one that features laidback and soulful work from the great Johnny Hodges – working here in a quintet that includes Earl "Fatha" Hines on piano and organ, Kenny Burrell on guitar, Richard Davis on bass, and Joe Marshall on drums. The style is nothing fancy, but Hodges' tone on these mid 60s Verve sides is always right on the money – soulful but not overdone, and put forth with just the right amount of economy. Hines' work on organ is pretty darn nice too – and the set's a nice cooker that updates the older swing sound of Verve for the 60s, but still keeps the mellow and spontaneous feel of the 60s. Titles include "Tippin In", "Caution Blues", "Stride Right", "Rosetta", "Fantastic", "Perdido", and "Tale Of The Fox". LP, Vinyl record album
(Stereo MGM pressing with deep groove.)
