MGM, Early 50s. Very Good ... $4.99
Excellent work from Buddy Greco's years on MGM – material that dovetails nicely with his boppish work for Verve in the early 50s, with equally nice small combo backing! There are a couple of De Franco originals such as "Pennywhistle Blues" and "Samia Shuffle" – plus the tracks "Cairo," "Carioca," "I Got it Bad," "Street of Dreams" and "Just One of those Things."

One of Billie's last sessions – recorded with beautiful large backings by Ray Ellis, and a heartbreaking tone that may not show Billie as strong technically as on some of her earlier albums, but which is pretty darn compelling nonetheless.

Phil WoodsPhil Woods & His European Rhythm Machine At The Montreux Jazz Festival (MGM pressing) ... LP
MGM, 1969. Near Mint- ... $5.99
One of the smartest moves Phil Woods ever made was to move to Paris in 1968 and pick up a European rhythm section that featured George Gruntz, Henri Texier, and Daniel Humair. At the time, the idea of a European rhythm section might have been considered suicide by some folks – but for Woods, it was a liberating move that allowed him to expand his sound tremendously. With the help of these three players – all loose modernists who still knew how to swing – Woods was able to craft some incredible tunes, long flowing numbers that featured his amazing tone stretching out in kind of a post-Coltrane sort of mode. This live set is one of the group's best recordings, and features extended versions of tracks that include "Capricci Cavaleschi", "I Remember Bird", "Ad Infinitum", and "Riot". LP, Vinyl record album

Tracks include "I'm Gonna Change" by The Velours, "To The Ends of The Earth" by Tony Middleton, "Street Talk" by The Tymes, "Wanting You" by April Stevens, "Watch Out Girl" by The Embers, "Everything You Always Wanted To Know About Love" by Lou Roberts, "(Love) You Just Can't Walk Away" by Dean Courtney, plus lots more by The Broadways, Roy Hamilton, Spyder Turner, Kim Weston, Millie Jackson, Lou Roberts & The Marks, and The Solitaires.

Music that no home should be without – presented here in a lavish package, with rare mono mixes too! The set's a wonderful way to get these early gems from Lou Reed, Nico, and The Velvet Underground – and the box set features the first three Velvet Underground albums for Verve, plus Nico's legendary Chelsea Girl debut, and the sublime unreleased 1969 album – filled with tracks that appeared elsewhere later ("Ocean", "Foggy Notion", "I Can't Stand It", "Rock & Roll", "Ride Into The Sun", "Lisa Says", and "I'm Sticking With You") – presented here as they were originally intended for record!

Les BaxterPanic In The Year Zero ... CD
MGM/La La Land, 1962. Used ... $14.99
A killer soundtrack from Les Baxter – recorded right after his initial exotica run for Capitol Records, and done with some surprisingly jazzy touches as well! Baxter does a great job of mixing stark drama with some cool mellower moments here – really expanding his musical palette from before, yet also using lots of those beautiful painterly colors and tones that first came to the forefront in his exotica years! The players on the record are all great – and include Conte Candoli on trumpet, Harry Betts on trombone, Gene Cipriano on saxes, Tommy Tedesco on guitar, and Milt Holland on percussion – players well-suited to Baxter's LA approach to the music. This beautiful reissue features very detailed notes, and excellent sound quality too – and titles include "No Girls/No Civilians/A Boy & His Gun", "Bridge/To The Cave/Atavistic", "The Hoods", "Trigger Happy", "Panic In Year Zero", "Atomic Subdominant", "First Aid", and "Chop Chop".

Melodic psychedelic rock from Boston's Beacon Street Union – one of a pair of great records the group cut for MGM in the late 60s! Eyes Of The Beacon Street Union finds the group stretching out stylistically – from fairly straight forward groove rock with psyche tinged guitars, to stranger piano rock rave ups and weird rhythms. Titles include "Recitation/My Love Is", "Beautiful Delilah", "Four Hundred And Five", "Sadie Said No", "Blue Avenue", "Speed Kills", "Green Destroys The Gold", "The Prophet" and more.

✨✧ Eric Burdon & The AnimalsEvery One Of Us ... LP
MGM, 1968. Very Good ... $11.99
Another gem from The Animals' overlooked late 60s years on MGM – a time when the group were easily making some of the most inventive music on the label! The styles here are even wider than before – definitely an attempt to showcase "every one of us" that made up the group – in a blend of spacey sounds, gentle folksy moments, and some of the rougher tones of previous MGM records. Many titles were written only by Burdon – a bit of a change from before – and showcase an increased use of acoustic guitar alongside his bleak vocals. Titles include "The Immigrant Lad", "Year Of The Guru", "Serenade To A Sweet Lady", "White Houses", "New York 1963/America 1968", and "Uppers & Downers". CD features a bonus single version of "White Houses". LP, Vinyl record album

Solomon BurkeWe're Almost Home ... LP

Rootsy soul album from Solomon, and perhaps his most stripped-down recording from the old days. In a way, these MGM recordings uncover more of his soulful vocals than the Atlantic albums did, although the setting's a little bit less traditional for Solomon. Includes a number of original cuts, like "Everything's Going to Be Alright, Very Soon", "We're Almost Home", and "I've Got to Do My Own Thing". The back cover has this crazy photo of Solomon sitting barefoot – and his feet are huge! LP, Vinyl record album

Surprisingly wonderful work from Kenny! The album has Kenny's guitar set to arrangements by Gil Evans – who gives the session a modern edge that really sets it apart from other Burrell albums of the time. Kenny's freed to do his thing – wonderfully, we might add – and Gil paints these washes of sound, color, and tone with the help of hip players like Johnny Coles, Louis Mucci, Julius Watkins, Steve Lacy, Richie Kamuca, Elvin Jones, and Lee Konitz. Tracks include "Lotus Land", "Downstairs", "Moon & Sand", "Terrace Theme", "Greensleeves", and "Loie". CD

Bobby CallenderRainbow ... LP
MGM, 1968. Very Good ... $29.99
A weird one. The album's sort of a trippy mix of psychedlia, soul, and jazziness – with production by Alan Lorber in a similar style to other projects of his from the same time (like the Lotus Palace album on Verve.) Bobby Callender sings in a style that's infused with a sense of knowledge and righteousness, but which is also a bit more devoid of soul than you'd expect from the cool cover of the album. Still, he's got some nice musicians backing him up, and a blend of instruments that includes organ, funky drums, and even sitar – so the overall sound's pretty cool. Titles include "Rainbow", "Symphonic Pictures", "A Man", "Mother Superior", and "Purple". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ CowsillsCaptain Sad & His Ship Of Fools ... LP
MGM, 1968. Very Good+ Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
One of the coolest albums from The Cowsills – that tremendous family pop act from the 60s, hitting some headier territory here than on earlier albums! There's a sense of darkness to some of the tracks that you might not have heard from the group before – kind of an eerie quality lurking in the background of the poppy numbers, with the same kind of unsettling feel you'd get from the album's cover – as if they'd been hanging around hippies, but weren't entirely sure how to handle the influence – the same weird world that Jack Wild must have been living in while working with Sid & Marty Croft. This offbeat edge really makes the record great – way more than simple pop, but still with all the Cowsills charm we know from before – and most of the best tunes here are original Cowsills compositions too. Titles include "Ask The Children", "Indian Lake", "Captain Sad & His Ship Of Fools", "Can't Measure The Cost Of A Woman Lost", "Painting The Day", and "Meet Me At The Wishing Well".

CowsillsCowsills ... LP
MGM, 1967. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $9.99
One of of the grooviest groups of their time – and a quintet who manage to exceed the usual on two different fronts – both as a family group, and as a harmony outfit too! The Cowsills have a vocal approach that's far richer than their years on the planet – never kiddie at all, and instead maybe even more well-crafted than most of the 20s pop harmonizers working at the time – thanks to these fab arrangements from Jimmy Wisner, who really has the group soaring from the start – and bringing in these darker, more mature elements to the music that you'd never expect. The whole thing's a wonderful mix of sweet and sad, in a style that goes way beyond the usual pop psych – on titles that include "The Rain The Park & Other Things", "Pennies", "La Ru Du Soliel", "Dreams Of Linda", "River Blue", "Troubled Roses", "How Can I Make You See" , and "(Come 'Round Here) I'm The One You Need".

Every Mothers' SonEvery Mothers' Son's Back ... LP
MGM, 1967. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $3.99
A great step forward for Every Mothers' Son – a set that's got all the catchy charm of their debut, yet a deeper sound overall! There's a great maturation in the music going on here – as some cuts show a love of pop-psych elements, which comes off in fuller backings that swirl strongly around the lyrics – while other tracks have a leaner quality and more acoustic elements, almost into the territory of Beau Brummels on Reprise, especially given the way the vocals come across. The whole thing's a 60s pop treasure – filled with great original tunes that include "Rainflowers", "Dolls In The Clock", "Only Child", "Sally (Life Story #3)", "Put Your Mind At Ease", and "Larry's Birthday Party".

Quite an unusual little album from Connie Francis – her attempt to join in on the Bonnie & Clyde album craze of the late 60s – but a set that's got a different feel than most! While others were steeped in country and bluegrass sounds, the approach here is mostly in a 30s pop vocal mode – playful arrangements from Don Costa, occasionally augmented to give them an "old time" feel in the studio – and vocals from Connie that are quite different than her usual pop modes – really changed up nicely to fit the different spirit of the tunes. Titles include "Ace In The Hole", "Gold Diggers Medley", "Connie & Clyde", "Maybe", "Button Up Your Overcoat", and "Am I Blue". LP, Vinyl record album

Gloria GaynorNever Can Say Goodbye ... LP
MGM, 1975. Very Good ... $1.99
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".

✨✧ Tompall GlaserAnother Log On The Fire – Hilbilly Central 2 (Tompall Sings The Songs Of Shel Silverstein/Great Tompall & His Outlaw Band/bonus tracks) ... CD
MGM/Bear Family (Germany), Mid 70s. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Two seminal 70s albums from Tompall Glaser – both recorded during the time he was one of the real outlaws working on the Nashville scene! On Sings The Songs Of Shel Silverstein, Tompall takes a page from the book of Bobby Bare – singing songs penned by the always-witty Shel, who'd made a surprising move to country music with a hit for Johnny Cash, which was followed by a really great run of material that helped both transform the Nashville sound, and also give it a different sort of sense of humor. Unlike Bare and some of Shel's other 70s interpreters, Glaser has this naturally blue-tinged sort of vocal sound – which really brings a different spirit to the music – maybe echoing some of the more melancholy qualities of tunes that include "I Ain't Lookin For Answers Anymore", "Musical Chairs", "Grab A Hold", "Echoes", "Old New Orleans Custom", "If I'm There", and "Put Another Log On The Fire". The Great Tompall is a seminal set from Tompall Glaser – one that has him rising up from the Nashville underground, to hit the same sort of territory that was making Willie Nelson and Waylon Jennings huge at the time! Like both of those singers, Glaser had spent years trying to make music work under other folks' directions – and had really broken off and found his own sort of path, with a spirit that really comes through here – on a record that definitely sounds unlike anyone else at the time. Tracks include new versions of some country classics, a few from the pen of Shel Silverstein, and a few more surprises along the way. Titles include "When It's Gone It's Gone Girl", "The Hunger", "West Canturbury Subdivision Blues", "I Can't Remember", "Time Changes Everything", and "If I'd Only Come & Gone". CD also features the bonus tracks from a single – "Loving You Again" and "T For Texas". CD

Was there a sexier 70s celebrity than Joey Heatherton? It's hard to think so – 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!) The set 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 include "God Only Knows", "It's Not Easy", "Right Or Wrong", "I'm Sorry", "Gone", "Say Hello", and "Someone To Watch Over Me". LP, Vinyl record album

Neal Hefti is one of those arrangers who can make anything sound great – and this rare session with Harry James is no exception! Hefti does a great job of updating Harry's older swing style – and the backings here have a solid 60s bounce that's a lot groovier than you ever might have expected from a James record a few decades back! There's a great sense of dynamism in the rhythms here – clearly the same groove that Hefti brought to Basie, but tilted slightly different here – with enough room for James to take the lead on his solos.

Michel LegrandCops & Robbers ... CD
MGM/Kritzerland, 1973. Used ... $4.99
Wonderful lost work from Michel Legrand – a fantastic, and fantastically overlooked, 70s soundtrack – completely essential to have in a CD version like this, since most of the music hardly appeared in the film at all! The score takes off nicely from some of Legrand's more famous work of the 60s and early 70s – with a mixture of warm themes, jazzy elements, and some of the funkier touches you'd expect from a cop/crime film – all at a level that's a bit less sentimental than some of his French film work, with just the right qualities to fit the offbeat story of the movie. There's a real Dave Grusin sort of approach going on at times – although with a bit more acoustic piano than electric keyboards – but Legrand also throws in a few softer bits to round things out nicely, and create a lot more depth in the music than you might expect for a low-budget film. Really great stuff overall – the kind of soundtrack that should have gotten proper release at the time, as it easily matches any of Legrand's bigger LP hits – and presented with great notes on both the film and music. Titles include "Papa Joe The Padrone", "Downtown", "Wall Street", "The Chase", "The Sleep Song", "The Sellers", and "Uptown". CD

A very very groovy little album of 60s pop vocals – thanks less to Gloria's talents, than to some of the great arrangers on the set! Gloria's got a voice that's a bit flat and a bit wispy, nothing really that fancy on its own – but she's working here with Luiz Henrique, Herb Bernstein, and Jack Franklin – all of whom bring in a great full-on sort of pop groove to the record. There's styles here that range from Sunshine Pop to Brit-inspired to bossa-styled – and there's a bit of electric sitar on a few of the cuts that comes off especially well. Titles include "Catch The Wind", "One Way Ticket", "Meantime", "The Song Is Love", "Good Day Sunshine", and "Don't Tie Me Down". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Vic Mizzy/The ByrdsDon't Make Waves ... LP
MGM, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
A groovy soundtrack from the vastly underrated Vic Mizzy – filled with excellent 60s groovers that mix together strings, guitars, surf sounds, and some mod go-go scoring! A number of tunes have some bubbling organ and sweet sax work – and others have oddly-pitched woodwind sections, playing in a 60s TV soundtrack mode that makes for some very nice jaunty numbers. The Byrds sing the title track "Don't Make Waves" – and all other tunes are instrumentals, with titles that include "Daybreak At Malibu", "Vox Box", "Zip Zip", "Driverless", "Madame Lavinia", and "The Girl On The Trampoline".

Oliver NelsonZigzag – Original Soundtrack ... LP
MGM, Early 70s. Very Good+ ... $9.99
A really standout score from Oliver Nelson – a set that's got some of his groovier touches at times, but also features some pretty great straighter scoring as well! The record really shows Nelson stepping out from his older role as a strictly jazz-based arranger – and although there are some jazz touches here, there's also some even more impressive larger orchestrations that soar out with a majestic use of strings. George Kennedy (remember that stretch when it seemed he was in every movie?) – and although half the album's straight soundtrack material, there's some groovy tracks that make it worthwhile. Roy Orbison sings a vocal number called "Zigzag" – but the real charmers are the jazzier themes, which include "The Other Car", "Love Theme", "Earphones", and the great "Variation Of Themes", which has a wonderfully dancing bossa groove to it!

✨✧ Lalo SchifrinLiquidator – Original Soundtrack ... LP
MGM, 1966. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
An obscure 60s spy soundtrack from Lalo Schifrin – done with a style that's a bit different than some of his other work at the time! There's still a fair bit of the trademark Schifrin elements – bits of jazz, bossa, and Latin touches on the tunes – but there's also a style here that's sometimes a bit more direct and dramatic, almost with a dark undercurrent that we're not use to hearing in Lalo's music. The film itself was something of a comedy, but a black one – and the music really fits that unsettling spirit. Shirley Bassey sings the main "Liquidator" theme – and other titles include "Boysies Bossa", "The Bird", "Riviera Chase", "Tilt", and "Bikini Waltz". LP, Vinyl record album

Jimmy SmithOther Side Of Jimmy Smith ... LP
MGM, Early 70s. Very Good- ... $2.99
The other side of Jimmy Smith is a mellow side – as this album's nearly all ballads and standards, set to moody late night orchestrations by Johnny Pate. Jimmy's playing is very very nice – and in a relaxed introspective mode that he hadn't really been allowed since some of his Blue Note sessions. Pate's got more of rep for funk and soul, but he does a pretty nice job here – and Jerome Richardson plays some nice flute on many tracks. Titles include "My Romance", "Nobody Knows", "My Way", "What Are You Doing The Rest Of Your Life?", and "Bewitched". LP, Vinyl record album

War & Eric BurdonBlack Man's Burdon ... LP
Far Out/MGM, 1971. Very Good 2LP Gatefold ... $13.99
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".

✨✧ AnimalsAnimalism ... LP
MGM, 1966. Very Good- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".

An excellent one from Getz – recorded here as the lead soloist over backings composed by Eddie Sauter, designed to accompany the film Mickey One, an early directorial effort from Arthur Penn (and starring Warren Beatty as well!) The score has a very edgey quality to it, and Getz's playing is superb – a clear contrast to his breathier bossa work of the same vintage, and proof that he was growing tremendously as a player at the time. Titles include "Where I Live", "The Creature Machine", "Morning Ecstasy", "As Long As I Live", "Mickey's Theme", and "On Stage". CD

A real charmer from singer Betty Madigan – and a set that's got a bit more flourish than you might expect from the image on the cover! Madigan's a singer who's clearly got a great range to her voice, and a technique that allows for sustained notes that hold on strongly – but the backings here also give some of the best tunes a nice sort of focus – mixing jazzy bits with tight orchestrations, all in the best manner of MGM vocal sides of the time. Betty digs deep at times, and floats lightly at others – and titles include "I Miss The Boy", "Everytime", The Lonesomest Girl In Town", "In Love In Vain", and "I Get Along Without You Very Well".

✨✧ Lalo SchifrinWrath Of God ... CD
MGM/Film Score Monthly, 1972. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Robert Mitchum as a cigar-smoking priest who totes a machine gun – the cover here is almost enough to make us buy the album, but the music is even better! The soundtrack is a later MGM score by Lalo Schifrin – penned for a slightly comedic action film set in Central America, and done with a fair bit of Latin touches in the instrumentation. Elements of a variety of different Latin modes trickle through more standard soundtrack work from Lalo – jazzy at times, more serious at others – but almost always served up with groovy touches that make this one especially appealing to our ears. There's some nice snakey flutes that slide through some of the bigger backings – and sparer tracks are often heavy on percussion – making for a nice blend of moods that serves up a freshly sounding track with nearly every entry on the album! CD features 23 tracks in all – including 2 bonus tracks – and titles include "Chela/Tacho", "Wrath Of God", "Mascaras", "Plegaria", "Jurado", "Nacho", "Musicos", "Emmet", "La Iglesia", "Campanas", and "La Confesion".

✨✧ Velvet UndergroundVelvet Underground & Nico (2 CD Deluxe Edition) ... CD
MGM/Polydor, Late 60s. Used 2 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Delicate dissonance, bruised beauty, and hazy noise pop – all in one of the best rock albums ever made – the amazing first album from the Velvet Underground and Nico! The album's the stuff of legend – and for good reason, too – a surprising slab of vinyl that barely set the world on its ear when first issued back in the mid 60s – yet a record that's gone onto have an influence felt for decades to come – arguably one of the most important rock records of all time. There's a really sinister edge to the record, even when things are sweet – and the range of subject matter and handling here is brilliant – from the dream pop slice of heaven "Sunday Morning", the melodic bitterness of "Femme Fatale", the massive White Light-esque freakout "European Son", and the sublime "Heroin" – quite possibly the inspiration for generations of drug use to come. The whole thing's a classic – with wonderful vocals from both Nico and Lou Reed – and titles include "Venus In Furs", "Run Run Run", "Black Angel's Death Song", "I'll Be Your Mirror", and "All Tomorrow's Parties". 2 CD version features the complete stereo mix of the LP plus the 4 tracks from Nico's Chesea Girl that featured the Velvets on the first disc. Disc 2 features the mono mix of the LP (first time on CD in the US), plus the single versions of "All Tomorrow's Parties", "I'll Be Your Mirror", "Sunday Morning" and "Femme Fatale". Other LP tracks include "The Black Angels Death Song", "I'm Waiting For My Man", "Venus In Furs", "Run Run Run", "There She Goes Again", and "I'll Be Your Mirror". The Chelsea Girl tracks are "Little Sister", "Winter Song", "It Was A Pleasure Then, "Chelsea Girls", and "Wrap Your Troubles In Dreams". 31 in all. CD

✨✧ War & Eric BurdonEric Burdon Declares War (Gold CD pressing) ... CD
MGM/Avenue, 1970. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
War became so popular on their own in later years that it's easy to forget how they first sprung onto the soul charts – here, in an album of many styles that was put together by the wayward Eric Burdon after the dissolution of The Animals. We have to admit that Burdon was a genius to hook onto the rich talents of this LA combo – even though he really didn't know what to do with them on this record. Part of the album's an homage to Roland Kirk, part is an extended reworking of "Tobacco Road", and part is an overly-long bluesy passage called "Blues For Memphis Slim". Fortunately, the record also includes the monster groover "Spill The Wine", one of the first big crossover tracks to popularize the Chicano funk sound of LA – and a great little groover that still hooks us in today.

✨✧ Buck GriffinLet's Elope Baby ... 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".

The band here is different than before – with Zoot Money handling both organ and piano, plus a bit of vocals, and Andy Summers joining in on guitar – and production is by the group itself, who shake off some of the trippier styles of previous records, and almost go for a "live in studio" sort of sound! There's a confluence of styles here that's really great – some of the blues of the group's roots, bits of Eric Burdon's growing love of soul, and some fuzzier touches as well. Some tracks are quite long jams, and titles include "Gemini", "Madman", "As The Years Go Passing By", "To Love Somebody", and "I'm An Animal". CD
