Appletree TheatrePlayback ... LP
Verve, 1967. Very Good ... $49.99
Mid 60s concept pop from Appletree Theatre – a mix of unpredictable baroque pop, soaring string laden tunes, and more stripped down and moody numbers – and programmed as acts, in keeping with the theatre mode! What's most impressive, other than the tuneful songcraft, is that it never comes off as shtick, and the concept doesn't get in the way of the songs, making this a really nice discovery! Arranged as a 3 act play, with overture and epilogue, titles include "Lullaby", "Hightower Square", "Saturday Morning", "Nevertheless It Was Italy", "I Wonder If Louise Is Home", "E-Train", "Brother Speed", "Don't Blame It On Your Wife", "What A Way To Go" and more. LP, Vinyl record album
(Mono white label promo. Cover has some wear, aging and a small peel spot from sticker removal.)

Sam LazarOrgan Grooves (Space Flight/Playback/bonus tracks) ... CD
Argo/Jasmine (UK), Early 60s. New Copy ... $12.99 13.99
A pair of Hammond jazz classics from organist Sam Lazar – back to back on a single CD, with rare bonus tracks too! First up is Space Flight – a tight batch of organ groovers with a raw R&B feel, recorded by the obscure St Louis organist Sam Lazar – with a very young Grant Green on guitar! The album's a bit different than Sam's other records for Argo – in that the tunes are all quite short, with a tight fast sound that's almost more R&B at times than jazz – a very unusual setting especially for Grant Green! The guitar is nice and loud – really racing to keep up with Lazar's fast work on the Hammond – and other members of the group include Willie Dixon on bass and Chauncey Williams on drums. Titles include "Mad Lad", "Space Flight", "Caramu", "Funky Blues", and "Big Willie". Playback is one of a few rare albums from Hammond player Sam Lazar – a lesser-known artist from the same searing generation as Baby Face Willette and Jack McDuff, but a musician who never full got his due! This record was done for the Argo side of Chess Records, and it's got a raw sound that's equal parts soul jazz and R&B – with Sam doing some great work on the keys, and the obscure tenorist Miller Brisker in the group too – a really great musician who works with lots of unique twists – and spurs Lazar onto new heights of playing, with maybe an even farther reach on the keys than his other albums. Lazar wrote most of the set, and the tracks include "Deep", "Fuzz Buzz", "S&S", "Scootin", and "Long Gone". A nice bit of soul jazz, with a deep rootsy sound all the way through! CD also features the bonus two-part 45rpm single of "Space Flight". CD

VariousWords – A Bee Gees Songbook ... CD
Playback, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $16.99 19.99
Most folks think of the Bee Gees as having their strongest influence during the disco generation – but right from the start, the Brothers Gibb were turning out the sort of tunes that other folks liked to sing – as you'll hear here in a wonderful collection of recordings from around the world! All the material is from the late 60s and early 70s, and features early tunes written by the brothers – some handled by groups that are more hard rocking, others trying to emulate more of the group's own sound – mixed here with a few really surprising contributions from soul and jazz singers too! The set features a massive 27 tracks in all –and titles include "One Bad Thing" by Ronnie Burns, "New York Mining Disaster" by Martin Carthy, "Touch & Understand Love" by Myrna March, "When The Swallows Fly" by Nimbo, "Got To Get A Message To You" by Swamp Dogg, "To Love Somebody" by Nina Simone, "Mrs Gillespie's Refrigerator" by Sands, "All By Myself" by The Brigade, "Lady" by Johnny Young & Kompany, "Watching The Hours Go By" by Noeleen Batley, and "Neither Rich Nor Poor" by Richard Wright Group.

✨✧ VariousHello Heartbreaker – Uptown Soul From Scepter, Wand, & Musicor ... CD
Playback, Mid 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A deep deep look at the New York soul powerhouse trio of labels Scepter, Wand, & Musicor – maybe best known for their big 60s recordings by Dionne Warwick and Chuck Jackson – but a trilogy of labels with a much deeper commitment to soul overall! This excellent package brings together 28 tracks in all, most of them obscure singles from some of the lesser-known artists to record for the family of labels – but still done with that rich production style that was known as uptown soul – full arrangements, and a strong mix of strings with rhythms – but in a way that still lets the deeper currents of the singers come to the forefront of the mix! The approach is very different than music from Detroit and Chicago at the time, and was really maybe the greatest calling card for New York soul during the time – served up beautifully here, in a collection that features 14 tracks that appear on CD for the first time ever. Titles include "Two Stupid Feet" by The Tabs, "Cry Me A River" by Marie Knight, "Brother Where Are You" by The Demotrons, "Dearly Beloved" by Jack Montgomery, "Accept Me" by The Diplomats, "Turn Back The Time" by Judy Clay, "Hey Child I Love You" by JJ Barnes, "A Thousand Rivers" by Roscoe Robinson, "My Only Prayer" by Lois Lane, "Through A Long & Sleepless Night (alt)" by Jimmy Radcliffe, "In Between Tears" by Lenny Miles, and "She's Gone" by Tony Drake.

VariousPopshopping – Jazzy Music From German Commercials 1960-1975 ... CD
Crippled Dick (Germany), 1960s/1970s. Used ... $24.99
One of the wildest collections we've ever stocked! This groovy batch of tunes is lifted from German TV commercials of the economic miracle years – jazzy little ditties designed to promote greater consumption as the way to a more perfect and beautiful life. Many of the tunes were penned and played by some of Germany's hipper composers of the time – including a few groove-heavy geniuses who've been appearing on other compilations on Crippled Dick or MPS. The range of tracks is pretty incredible – and although there's a mod swinging beat in a lot of the material, there's also a strange staccato TV blare to the whole thing, which gives the music an even spookier edge. Titles include "Moulinex" by Gert Wilden, "Minikillers II" by Johnny Teupen, "Wild Freshness" by Klaus Doldinger, "Frei Mit Boots" by Klaus Doldinger, "Polycolor" by Klaus Wusthoff, "Opel Commodore" by Klaus Wusthoff, "Nescafe Calypso" by Max Woishi, "Spaze Freizeit '69" by W Breining, "Sweet & Sexy" by Baden & Brenk, "Ford Taunus" by Christian Bruhn, and "Swinging Nordwest (Playback)" by Max Meier-Maletz. 28 tracks in all – and a beautiful package!
