✨✧ James BookerLost Paramount Tapes ... LP
Paramount/General General, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great little set from New Orleans legend James Booker – a previously unissued session from 1973 – recorded in LA with a great array of well-matched players! Booker's on piano, playing with a chunky, rough-edged groove – pretty funky at times, thanks especially to the great John Boudreaux on drums – best known for his classic lines on early work by Dr John! Other players on the date include Alvin Robinson on guitar, David Lastie on sax, and Jessie Hill on tambourine and vocals – and although the album never got the final studio polish it might have, were it released at the time, that aspect actually makes it great – and helps it retain all of its most rough-edged moments. Titles include "Hole In The Wall", "Tico Tico", "Feel So Bad", "Junco Partner", "Lah Tee Tah", "African Gumbo", "So Swell When You're Well", and "Goodnight Irene". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ NirvanaLive At The Paramount (180 gram pressing – with poster) ... LP
Interscope, 1991. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Peak period Nirvana, recorded live on Halloween night at their hometown Paramount on 1991 only around a month after the release of Nevermind! As monumentally important as that album is, and as hugely cathartic as the roaring guitar sound producer Butch Vig was able to capture for it remains to this day, something about the more shambling ferocity of their live set never really found its way onto any of their studio albums, making well-captured live recordings from the period all the more vital. Includes "Aneurism", "Jesus Doesn't Want Me For A Sunbeam", "Love Buzz", "Been A Son", and early version of "Rape Me", "Territorial "Pissings", "Smells Like Teen Spirit", "Sliver", "Breed", "On A Plain", "Negative Creep" and more.

✨✧ Woody Allen/Billy GoldenbergPlay It Again Sam ... LP
Paramount, 1972. Near Mint- ... $6.99
The soundtrack to Allen's famous film of the early 70s, based on a play that he's also written. Most of the record is dialogue from the film – or really monologues, since Allen talking is the main crux of the action. There's some incidental music, but think of this more as a comedy record of Allen's than a musical soundtrack. LP, Vinyl record album

George Duning/Lyn MurrayWho's Been Sleeping In My Bed/Wives & Lovers ... CD
Paramount/Quartet (Spain), 1963. New Copy ... $24.99
Two 60s sex comedy soundtracks – back to back on a single CD! George Duning is at his grooviest on the music for Who's Been Sleeping In My Bed – a great Dean Martin film from 1963, scored by Duning with a mixture of jazzy modes – often with woodwinds that are surprisingly expressive, from comedic dips and turns, to passages that are slightly sexy, or more emotive. Most tracks are relatively short – but work together well over the course of the two dozen numbers included in the package – all very visual in structure and sound! Next up is Wives & Lovers – scored by the lesser-known Lyn Murray, with an equally great use of jazzy elements – especially woodwinds, played by a lineup that includes a number of great west coast saxophone talents! The tunes have no trouble mixing a bit of sentiment with a touch of class, using the jazzier elements in a really great maturation of 50s west coast cool – one that still works well, even when a bit of strings come into the mix. There's also some great piano lines played by Jimmy Rowles – and the CD features 21 tracks from the film, including some unusual bonus material! CD

Bluesy soundtrack for this 70s film based on the life of Huddie Ledbetter – aka Leadbelly – featuring guitar by Brownie, harmonica by Sonny, and vocals by Hitide Harris in the place of Leadbelly. Art Evans also sings some vocals as Blind Lemon Jefferson – and the tracks are nearly all Ledbetter originals, including "Go Down Ol Hannah","Fannin Street", "Rock Island Line", "Silver City Bound", "Green Corn", and "Black Girl". Fred Karlin arranged and conducted. LP, Vinyl record album

Francis LaiLove Story ... LP
Paramount, 1970. Near Mint- ... $2.99
A soundtrack masterpiece from French maestro Francis Lai – a film score that's maybe even more globally famous than his work for A Man & A Woman! The style here is quite European, despite the American fame of the movie – and Lai has no trouble blending a sense of light melody with groovier elements – in the manner that the French and Italian soundtrack giants did so well back in the 60s, and which was such a great contrast to Hollywood modes of earlier years! Strong instrumental elements include cool use of harpsichord, echoey piano, and lilting strings – and even the record's few bits borrowed from Bach and Mozart come off sounding pretty cool too. Titles include "Theme From Love Story", "Skating In Central Park", "Snow Frolic", "I Love You Phil", "The Long Walk Home", and "Bozo Barrett". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Cybill ShepherdCybill Does It To Cole Porter ... LP
Paramount, 1974. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $14.99
Cybill Shepherd sings Cole Porter tunes as they were originally written – meaning that all the double meanings and "blue" lyrics are intact without the editing that was later done for the general listening public. Her singing is not bad, very much in the style of a Broadway musical singer or that of the Las Vegas showroom. Tracks include "Let's Do It", "My Heart Belongs To Daddy", "Kate The Great", "Anything Goes", "Give Him The Oo-la-la", "Let's Misbehave", and "Brush Up Your Shakespeare". The music was arranged and conducted by Artie Butler and the album was directed and produced by film maker Peter Bogdanovich. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ AmbergrisAmbergris ... LP
Paramount, Early 70s. Near Mint- Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A genre-busting batch of tunes from Ambergris – a group with styles that range from Memphis soul, to New York Latin, to some of the heavier sides of the underground rock scene of the time! The ensemble features Latin Soul maestro Larry Harlow on piano, organ, and percussion – working with a rock-based group that still has lots of jazzy touches on their instrumentation. Steve Cropper produced the set – but in New York, not Memphis – and the whole thing explodes with a rich range of musical influences, all bubbling together in one pot! Includes the funky rock tracks "Soul Food" and "Forget It I Got It", plus "Endless Night", "Sunday Lady", "Home Groan", "Chocolate Pudding", and "Gotta Find Her". LP, Vinyl record album

Very easy-oriented material from Bonfa – with a mixture of arrangements by Deodato and Nick Perito. Perito's arrangements are actually the best here, as they have kind of a groovy 60s sound that works better with the material than Deodato's – which tend to be a bit too easy. Titles include "More", "Man & A Woman", "Bubala", "Exodus", "Moon River", and "Born Free". LP, Vinyl record album

ABC, 1961. Very Good+ ... $14.99
A classic album of soul duets – and one of the deeper records cut by Betty during the 60s! The arrangements are by the great Marty Paich, and although there's some singers in the background, the overall sound is still pretty nice and soulful. Betty's high voice works well with Ray's raspy low one – especially on their classic duet version of "Baby, It's Cold Outside". Other tracks include "For All We Know", "Every Time We Say Goodbye", "Side By Side", and "You & I". LP, Vinyl record album

ImpressionsComplete A & B Sides – 1961 to 1968 ... CD
ABC/Universal (UK), Mid 60s. Used 2 CDs ... $13.99
The complete early-to-late 60s singles of Curtis Mayfield & The Impressions – some of the best Chicago soul of all time – and some of our favorite songs of the era, period! All of the great ABC-Paramount era singles are here, from the beautiful, post doo wop vocal gems with Curtis Mayfield's always emotional falsetto out front, to the innovative Johnny Pate arrangements, to the more strident and empowering (but no less catchy) groovers later on in the decade. Beautiful stuff, and nice to have in a package that features both the front and back sides of so many excellent 60s singles! 30 tracks on 2CDs, with the A's on disc one and the corresponding B's on disc two! Includes "Gypsy Woman", "As Long As You Love Me", "Grow Closer Together", "Can't You See", "Little Young Lover", "Never Let Me Go", "I'm So Proud", "I Made A Mistake", "Can't Satisfy", "This Must End", "It's Hard To Believe", "You Ought To Be In Heaven", "Don't Cry My Love", "Sometimes I Wonder" and much more!

Jackie & RoyGlory Of Love ... LP
ABC, 1956. Very Good ... $2.99
One of our favorite albums by the team of Jackie & Roy – a really special little set that features small combo backing, great tunes, and some of the best vocals of their early career! The album features Roy playing piano in a quartet with Barry Galbraith on guitar, Milt Hinton on bass, and Osie Johnson on drums – and there's a lightly jazzy feel to the whole set, one that really works well with the vocals from the pair. Jackie takes the lead on some numbers, but most have her and Roy singing duets – in that cool mix of scatting and lyrical interplay they do so well. Pretty groovy stuff – especially for the 50s – and titles include "Let's Get Away From It All", "You Inspire Me", "Where Did The Gentleman Go", "The Glory Of Love", "I Love You Real", and "Miz Margret".

Charley PattonComplete Recorded Works In Chronological Order – Volume 1 (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Document/Third Man, 1929. Near Mint- ... $14.99
Legendary Paramount recordings from Charlie Patton – mostly recorded in Richmond, Indiana in 1929 – but easily some of the most important Mississippi blues of the time! The package features a wealth of seminal songs from the June, 1929 session that really helped launch the Patton legacy – tracks that are arguably as important to the development of blues as the work of Robert Johnson, and which quite possibly circulated even more at the time. Patton's got a slightly folksy approach, and a sense of darkness that really makes most of these numbers very riveting, even all these many decades later – an acoustic brilliance that's had folks coming back to his music time and time again over the years. Titles include "Pony Blues", "A Spoonful Blues", "Shake It & Break It", "Prayer Of Death (parts 1 & 2)", "Going To Move To Alabama", and "Down The Dirt Road Blues". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ CandidoLatin Fire – The Big Beat Of Candido ... LP
ABC, 1959. Very Good- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the grooviest early albums recorded by Candido – done way before his later funky sides, and served up with plenty of unusual touches that set it apart from the usual 50s Latin set! Candi's very much in front of the arrangements on congas – hitting hard with a percussive fury that certainly marks his space – but he's also getting wonderful support from Manny Albam on arrangements, who brings in some searing solo work from players like Nick Travis, Phil Woods, and Ernie Royal – all of whom color the sound with some strong lines on their horns. And added to this too are some sparely-used vocal bits – scatting chorus passages that are never hokey, and expand out the tunes with a finger-snapping sound that's way better than you might expect! The record's one of the most subtle "with voices" efforts we've ever heard – and we love Albam's economical use of this element alongside the stronger jazz soloists. Titles are mostly traditional numbers, but they're transformed tremendously with this sound – as you'll hear on the album's versions of "Royal Garden Blues", "King Porter Stomp", "Ja Da", "Swinging The Blues", "Sweet Sue", and "Exactly Like You".

✨✧ Lucky ThompsonLucky Thompson Featuring Oscar Pettiford Vol 1 ... LP
ABC, Mid 50s. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Really standout material from Lucky – an excellent set of small group sessions that features Oscar Pettiford on bass! The format's a bit like the small combo mode that Americans from larger touring ensembles were recording in Europe – a bit more laidback, and with more solo focus for players who were sometimes eclipsed in larger groups. One side has Lucky playing with Hank Jones, Pettiford, and Osie Johnson in the rhythm section – plus "Jim Whatsmyname" on trombone, clearly another player working here against contractual rules. The flip is just trio material – spare and beautiful, with Lucky's tenor set against Pettiford's bass and the guitar of Skeeter Best. Titles include "Tricotism", "Bo Bi My Boy", "Op Meets LT", "Tom Kattin", and "Translation". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Karen DaltonIn My Own Time ... CD
Light In The Attic, 1971. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Enigmatic folk rock and soulful bluesy vocals from Karen Dalton – her legendary lost 1971 album that's credited with inspiring some the most idiosyncratic work by folk rock superstars and contemporary freak folk heroes alike! Karen was a fixture on the 60s NY folk scene – Dylan even gives her props in his Chronicles Vol 1 memoirs – but she rarely recorded. Her voice carries a huge Billie Holiday influence – but the delivery is wholly unique in her earthy folk phrasing, a real dip back into Harry Smith territory. Her guitar and banjo picking is strong, too! In My Own Time was recorded for Paramount at the end of 1970 and beginning of '71, with really rich and surprisingly soulful backing on an interesting selection of material written or popularized by Dylan & The Band, George Jones, Paul Butterfield, and even a folksy soul take on "When A Man Loves A Woman". Light In The Attic shines a huge light for this reverential reissue – pristinely remastered, with a thick booklet of liner notes by Lenny Kaye, Nick Cave and Devendra Banhart. Other tracks include "Something On Your Mind", "In My Own Dream", the traditional "Katie Cruel", "One Night Of Love" and "Are You Leaving For The Country". CD

✨✧ Rick KennedyJelly Roll, Bix, & Hoagy – Gennett Records & The Rise Of America's Musical Grassroots ... Book
Indiana University Press, 2013. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A great look at the legendary Gennett Records – an important early force in the world of 78rpm recordings – and home to a great number of early jazz recordings too! Gennett was the offshoot of an Indiana piano factory – and like Paramount, a similarly far-flung company initially tied to another industry, Gennett had a surprising reach that captured some of the coolest sounds of the bigger cities – with a recording roster that included Louis Armstrong, King Oliver, Bix Beiderbecke, Hoagy Carmichael, Duke Ellington, Charley Patton, and many others – a huge legacy that set the tone for so many other labels to come. The author tells the story of Gennett with a strong attention to detail – but he also still makes the tale come alive, in the way that he recounts the company's strange role as a crossroads for musicians from much farther away. 276 pages, softcover, with some black and white images.

The set features a tight brace of three trumpets in the lead, alongside trombone, alto, tenor, and baritone – almost an extension of the sounds crafted at the tail end of the swing years, but with some nice modernist inflections too – somewhere in a space between Woody Herman and Stan Kenton, with lots of nice hues and tones in the horns. Original titles on that session include "Train Ride", "The Animal Man", "Every Mornin", "Old Wives Tales", "Jack's Theme", and "Joe The Architect". LP, Vinyl record album
(Mono pressing, including the ABC-Paramount inner sleeve.)
