✨✧ Chronkite with Liquid DopeI Want You (Kenny Dope main mix, Kenny Dope dub, dub reprise) ... 12-inch
Dopewax, 2006. Near Mint- ... $6.99
A sublime remake of Marvin Gaye's classic "I Want You" – one that takes the rhythms firmly into dancefloor territory, but which also still keeps all the sparkling warmth of the original! The groove here is bold, housey, and firmly in the best Kenny Dope club mode – soaring along a sense of joy that Marvin would have loved! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Electric PrunesComplete Reprise Singles ... CD
Reprise/Real Gone, Late 60s. New Copy ... $17.99 18.99
A comprehensive anthology of The Electric Prunes singles for Reprise – including work produced by David Axelrod, all in their original mono mixes – and a long overdue collection! We've been spinning and loving the Electric Prunes albums for so long, we're actually quite guilty of overlooking just how succinctly and sharply brilliant they are as a singles band! That alone makes this strong set on Real Gone worthwhile, but the tight, punchy mono mixes seal the deal! All of the great singles are here – from their early garage-psych gems to the trippier, though still tightly-grooving tunes towards the end of the decade – plus a groovy radio spot for the Vox Wah Wah Pedal! Includes "Ain't It Hard", "I Had Too Much To Dream (Last Night)", "Luvin'", "Dr. Do-Good", "The Great Banana Hoax", "Credos", "Shadow", "Violent Rose", "Sell", "Love Grows", "The Adoration", "Help Us (Father, Our King)", "Finders Keepers, Losers Weepers", "Sanctus", ""Flowing Smoothly" and more. 24 tracks in all.

Barbara LewisDon't Forget About Me – The Atlantic & Reprise Recordings (3CD set) ... CD
Atlantic/Soulmusic.com (UK), 1960s. New Copy 3CD ... $24.99
Damn fantastic work from Barbara Lewis – one of our favorite soul singers of the 60s, and an artist who's a bit unlike anyone else! Lewis hails from the Detroit area, but also did a fair bit of early recording in Chicago – and in a way, her sound is maybe a mix of the class of Motown with some of the sophistication that was coming into the Chess Records soul work as the 60s moved on – both modes that Lewis held together perfectly, and with a quality that was years ahead of her time! On these sides, Barbara can be groovy, but never silly – open with her emotions, but never imprisoned by them – often working with the best arrangers of the time, like Arif Mardin or Riley Hampton – and even getting backing support from members of The Dells on a number of cuts. The set is amazing – six full albums' worth of material recorded for Atlantic, plus lots of non-album tracks and b-sides, one unreleased track, and two sides from a very obscure Reprise Records single in 1973. There's never been a collection of Lewis' work like this – a massive 68 track package, with details on all the sessions, and superb sound throughout! CD

MetersGetting Funkier All The Time – The Complete Josie, Reprise, & Warner Recordings 1968 to 1977 (Meters/Look Ka Py Py/Struttin/Cabbage Alley/Rejuvenation/Fire On The Bayou/Trick Bag/New Directions/bonus tracks) (6CD set) ... CD
Warner/Soulmusic.com (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 6 CDs ... $36.99
A massive package of funky music – and maybe one that no home should be without – as the set includes all the classic Josie Records and Warner Brothers albums by legendary New Orleans funk group The Meters – plus a fair bit of bonus tracks too! The Josie albums are incredible – a lean, powerful blend of funky drums, bass, guitar, and organ – almost the New Orleans answer to Booker T & The MGs, but with a sound that's far funkier overall – and which continues to bring new ears to the magic of The Meters as the years go by! Their Warner work is a bit fuller – as the group were part of a big wave of Nola talent to get the nod from LA – which means that The Meters were able to add in vocals, experiment with arrangements, use additional instrumentation – yet all without ever losing that core groove that made them so great! This package is the first time all the records have been brought together, and many are presented here in the "expanded edition" versions with bonus tracks – which makes for a whopping 116 titles on 6CDs – bonus tracks, plus the full albums The Meters, Look Ka Py Py, Struttin, Cabbage Alley, Rejuvenation, Fire On The Bayou, Trick Bag, and New Directions – plus some singles too!

Restless Soul with Zansika & Shea SoulNippon Exclusive EP – Draw Your Bone (voc, inst, reprise)/Something Inside (voc, reprise) ... 12-inch
Especial (Japan), 2007. Near Mint- ... $1.99
Restless Soul magic from the mighty Phil Asher – getting plenty of help here on both cuts from Mark De Clive-Lowe! "Draw Your Bow" features soulful vocals from Shea Soul – slinking around the keyboards and beats nicely, with a depth that gives the track a classic soul feel overall – thanks in part to Phil's straightforward rhythms on the cut – more 70s funky than some of his other more cosmic work in years past! "Something Inside" is slightly more skittish, but still plenty warm and funky – a wicked little groove that features lead vocals from Zansika, and more great keyboards from Mark De Clive-Lowe! 12-inch, Vinyl record

David SanbornAnything You Want – The Warner/Reprise/Elektra Years 1975 to 1999 (3CD set) ... CD
Soulmusic.com (UK), Late 70s/1980s/1990s. New Copy 3CD ... $24.99
A big overview collection of work from the key years of reedman David Sanborn – a player who certainly knew how to hit the heights with the sales of his records, but also had a surprisingly strong, rich career over the years! If you only think of Sanborn as a smooth jazz pioneer, then you'll find plenty to open up your mind here – as David first recorded as a solo act for Warner Brothers at a time when he was making key contributions to sessions for other artists, then found ways to consistently stay ahead of the fusion and electric jazz mainstream – to the point where in the later recordings here, he's almost back to basics in a really surprising way! As with other great anthology collections on this label, there's a really strong track selection – one that not only features key album tracks, but singles and even a few live cuts too – a really well-chosen batch of 46 tunes that include "Believer (12" mix)", "Love & Happiness (live)", "High Roller", "Flight", "Heba", "Short Visit", "This Masquerade", "Lesly Ann (radio)", "Smile (live)", "Infant Eyes", "Naked Moon", "Brother Ray", "Imogene", "Come To Me Nina", "Lotus Blossom (live)", "Daydreaming", "Same Girl", "Bang Bang (single)", "Summer", "I Do It For Your Love", "The Water Is Wide", "Got To Give It Up (rmx edit)", "Slam (7" version)", and "Duck Ankles".

✨✧ Jack NitzscheThree Piece Suite – The Reprise Recordings 1971 to 1974 ... CD
Reprise/Wounded Bird, Early 70s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A key lost chapter of the ultra-hip early 70s Warner Brothers rock scene – lost recordings by Jack Nitzsche, a key figure from the same scene as Van Dyke Parks, Jimmy Webb, Randy Newman, and other legendary figures. Nitzsche first emerged in the 60s as kind of a Phil Spector-like wunderkind – but by the time of these 70s recordings, he'd stretched out considerably – working in orchestral formats, as he'd later use on some of his best soundtrack work, and also exploring the more adult side of contemporary rock – with a pastiche of themes, manners, and modes borrowed from Americana, and filtered through the same Burbank-hip filter used by Van Dyke Parks. The first 6 tracks on the set are from the obscure album St Giles Cripplegate, and are mostly orchestral – and the remaining tunes weren't even released until the turn of the millennium! The include ones recorded for the album Jack Nitzsche – a collaboration with Robert Downey, due for release in 1974, and done with a style that's a bit like the best reprise work of Parks, Webb, Newman, and Paul and/or Mason Williams. These tracks all have vocals, and a wonderfully earthy, honest, and adult feel – and they're very nicely complemented by the remaining 4 tracks, which are demos, also previously unissued. Titles include "I'll Bet She Knew It", "On The Moodus Run", "Marie", "Number Eleven", "Carly", "Reno", "I'm The Loneliest Fool", and "Who Say What To Who". CD

Alice Babs & Duke EllingtonSerenade To Sweden ... CD
Reprise/Real Gone, 1963. New Copy ... $17.99 18.99
A beautiful and rare recording – both for singer Alice Babs, and Duke Ellington himself! The session was cut in Paris in 1963 – and it's a moody, intimate album that features Duke backing up Alice with arrangements that are quieter and more subtle than those used with most other Ellington-related singers. Alice is extremely great on the set – and often sings in weird wordless vocals – not really scatting, but more of a horn based-style that's very icy and cool. The whole thing's great – much greater even than the sum of its two famous parts – and titles include "Serenade To Sweden", "Stoona", "La De Doody Doo", "Strange Visitor", "Come Sunday", "Babsie", and "Untitled Lullaby".

Count BasieThis Time By Basie! ... LP
Reprise, 1963. Very Good ... $2.99
We totally dig Basie's work from the mid 60s! He was working with Quincy Jones at the time – and Quince laid down some very soulful arrangements that used the best jazz elements of the Basie group to turn out some great pop instrumental tracks with a very groovy sound. This album's a perfect example of that format, as it features some great Basie sidemen, grooving nicely to Quincy's hip swinging arrangements of pop material like "Walk, Don't Run", "Fly Me To The Moon", "This Could Be The Start Of Something Big", and "One Mint Julep".

Captain BeefheartSpotlight Kid ... LP
Reprise, 1972. Very Good+ ... $29.99
An early 70s gem from Captain Beefheart – not as wild-eyed and wacked out as the late 60s glories, but still a good stretch weirder than most of the post psych, blues-steeped rock of the time! Ultimately, it's still Captain Beefheart & The Magic Band, despite it being billed solely to Captain Beefheart on the cover (and his only album NOT co-billed with The Magic Band) – and we'd say it's their first album to go for a consistent mood from beginning-to-end, and we love it for that! If the Trout Mask Replica and Lick My Decals Off, Baby records are the more feral early twin masterpeices, we'd say this one and Clear Spot are the wiser and more focused siblings, but no less classic! Tracks include "I'm Gonna Booglarize You Baby","Grow Fins", "There Ain't No Santa Clause On The Evenin' Stage", "Blabber'n Smoke", "Alice In Blunderland", "The Spotlight Kid", and "Glider".

Reprise, 1965. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
A fitting set, in some way – as Sammy's rise in the 60s was equivalent to Nat's at the end of the 40s – but you've gotta admit, Sammy's vocals are quite quite different from those of Cole! Don't think of this one as a "tribute", so much as it's a collection of classic time-tested songs – all delivered by Sam with that Wham that he was bringing to his best Reprise work of the time. Arrangers include Billy May, Marty Paich, Claus Ogerman, and Johnny Keating – all of whom are working in that wonderful 60s easy style that fit Sammy's voice so well – a surprisingly spacious sound, and one that always seems to have a hint of rhythm, even on the mellowest tracks! Great stuff all around, and with tracks that include "Pretend", "Unforgettable", "Straighten Up & Fly Right", "Sweet Lorraine", "Send For Me", and "Walkin My Baby Back Home". LP, Vinyl record album

Sammy Davis JrSammy Davis Jr Show – With Surprise Guest Stars ... LP
Reprise, 1966. Near Mint- ... $7.99
A great one from Sammy Davis Jr – one of his most upbeat, bouncy albums for Reprise – and definitely done with the sort of energy that earns the set the "show" in the title! The album was released in conjunction with Sammy's TV show on NBC in the mid 60s – and it's filled with the kind of catchy, super-swinging tunes that made Davis a real standout of his generation – not just one hell of a singer from a technical perspective, but one who could also transform any sort of material into a very groovy tune! Not all the tracks are fresh for the recording – as a few seem to echo other Reprise projects – but together, the songs make the album one of Sammy's best from the label – and include some Rat Pack guest appearances from Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin. Titles include "More Than One Way", "We Open In Venice", "Sam's Song", "This Dream", and "Feeling Good" – plus new recordings of "Hey There" and "What Kind Of Fool Am I". LP, Vinyl record album

Sammy Davis JrSammy Davis Jr Sings Mel Torme's California Suite ... LP

One of the harder to find Sammy records, and one of the best! Sammy takes Mel Torme's drippy "California Suite", an extended work about how great California is – and he turns it into an extended chat between Sammy and a friend in a bar in New York City, with twists and turns that are way jazzier, and way hipper than Mel's version, which features a whiny woman playing the part of the New Yorker. Side two of the record features some great sensitive versions of Mel Torme tunes – like "Welcome To The Club", "A Stranger Called The Blues", and "Willow Road". Arrangements by Marty Paich, too – one of Mel's best arrangers! LP, Vinyl record album

Electric Prunes (with David Axelrod)Mass In F Minor/Release Of An Oath ... CD
Reprise/Morello (UK), 1967/1968. New Copy ... $12.99
A pair of rare gems from The Electric Prunes – both of which feature key production help from David Axelrod! Mass In F Minor is a beautifully baroque batch of tracks, written and arranged for the Electric Prunes by the great David Axelrod – a really groundbreaking mix of modes that had quite an impact back in the late 60s! The record shows Axelrod's perpetual fascination with the spiritual – mixed with that great modern style of funk that he was forging at Capitol during the late 60s. The record's not really preachy, nor is it proggy. It's more of a complex blueprint of rock, jazz, funk, and touches of soul – all hung together on the same sort of "mass" structure that Axelrod would later use with Cannonball and on his own. Titles include "Kyrie Eleison", "Gloria", "Benedictus", and "Sanctus". Release Of An Oath is the second album done by David Axelrod for The Electric Prunes – and arguably the best! The album's a bit unusual, in that none of the original Prunes were actually working on the session – and instead, Axlerod's almost fully at the helm – putting together the set in a way that's quite similar to his own solo albums over at Capitol! As with those, there's a bold, spacious sort of instrumentation here – richly orchestral, but also quite funky at times – punctuated by great drums from Earl Palmer, bass from Carol Kaye, keyboards from Don Randi, and guitar from Howard Roberts – who's really tripping out nicely here! The work uses the Jewish Kol Nidre mass as its conceptual focus – but really takes off with plenty of tripped-out Axelrod flourishes that make the whole thing a fair bit more psychedelic than anything you'd ever hear in temple. Titles include "Holy Are You", "The Adoration", "Our Father, Our King", "Kol Nidre", and "General Confessional". CD

The album that brought the excellent, but heretofore underappreciated duo of Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks into the band – and pretty much changed the fabric of 70s rock! Older fans of the Peter Green and Bob Welch Brit blues eras of Fleetwood Mac may have been in for a shock initially, but this really is one of the best unpretentious pop rock albums of the 70s – they didn't get as hugely popular as they did by luck – the songs, energy and chemistry are really perfect. We may even love this one more than Rumours, especially the deeper cuts that haven't been overplayed over the years. Includes "Monday Morning", "Blue Letter, "Rhiannon", "Say You Love Me", "Warm Ways", "Over My Head", "I'm So Afraid" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

Reprise/BMG, Late 60s. New Copy ... $13.99 15.98
Really incredible work from the early version of Fleetwood Mac – a set that has them moving past the straighter blues of their roots, but not yet in the smooth territory of later 70s fame – music that's awash in the mindblowing guitar work of Peter Green! The pacing and song structure is great – very fresh, and another example of the way that the group and their contemporaries used blues rock as this surprisingly strong springboard to quickly move into new and inventive territory of their own! Titles include "Coming Your Way", "Show Biz Blues", "Under Way", "One Sunny Day", "Fighting For Madge", "Like Crying", and "Before The Beginning". Great CD version – with the original 14 track UK version of the record, in a book-like cover with new notes!

Reprise/Wounded Bird, 1969. New Copy ... $6.99 11.98
One of the last couple of Fugs albums for Reprise – '69's Belle Of Avenue A – and a mix of stripped down acoustic weirdness and the more heated Fugs-style rock & roll of other Reprise albums by the group! In one level, it seems like they might have simply exorcised the experimental psychedelia demon with the more wildly arranged It Crawled Into My Hand, Honest album and decided to let this one succeed on the basis of the political satire and poetry of their wordplay. But it's not that simple, as they rage pretty heavily on a couple tunes and strip it down to the barest essentials on others. Ultimately, it's another sharp, worthy Fugs album everyone outta pick up! Inclludes "Bum's Song", "Dust Devil", "Chicago", "For Minutes To Twelve", "Queen Of The Nile", "Yodeling Yippie", "Children Of The Dream" and more. CD

Arlo GuthrieAlice's Restaurant (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Reprise/Pure Pleasure (UK), 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99 44.99
Arlo Guthrie may not be one of the best-remembered folkies of the 60s, but he sure made waves with this classic debut and the side-long title song! Arlo is the son of Woody Guthrie, and probably owes as much to Bob Dylan as Dylan does to Woody – but he was definitely on to something when he expanded the shorter protest song into the space of the 18 minute "Alice's Restaurant Massacre", which makes surprisingly strong use of its many grooves on the record – while Arlo delivers a biting commentary on the life of a young man in the era of Vietnam and the uptight Establishment. Side two brings in shorter tracks, but with a similar energy – selections that include "Chilling Of The Evening", "The Motorcycle Song", "I'm Going Home", "Highway In The Wind", and "Now & Then".

The tune's got a sharp, soulful sparkle that really comes from Wilson's great charts – inventive use of instrumentation and timings that work perfectly with that amazing Hibbler voice – easily one of the most impressive male jazz modes of the postwar years, but not always given a setting this great! Hibbler's sense of personality and phrasing comes through wonderfully – and there's a mature sophistication to the record that's really marvelous – a vibe that's more late 60s than you'd expect from the date. Titles include "Don't Take Your Love From Me", "When The Sun Comes Out", "You Of All People", "Dinner For One Please James", and "Laughing On The Outside". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original mono pressing with deep groove.)

Holy MackerelHoly Mackerel ... LP
Reprise, Late 60s. Sealed ... $28.99
A Sunshine Pop relic – and a beautiful one at that! The Holy Mackerel were an early group project of Paul Williams – recorded here in a hip late 60s Warner mode that's very similar to that of Paul's excellent Someday Man album – with nicely compressed instrumentation that matches Paul's wonderful vocal style, and some nice trippy and folksy touches that really push the "sunshine" in the sound. The tunes are great – a bit more biting than Williams' later work – and titles include "The Wild Side Of Life", "Bitter Honey", "The Secret Of Pleasure", "Scorpio Red", "The Lady Is Waiting", "The Somewhere In Arizona At 4:30am Restaurant Song", and "Prinderella". LP, Vinyl record album

Rick JamesWonderful ... CD
Reprise/Collectables, 1987. Used ... $5.99
Rick James makes the move away from Motown here – heading over to Warner/Reprise, in the Prince side of the spectrum – along with a cover image that has him wearing a paisley costume on top of a purple background – in a way that could well make the buyer think that Rick's working with Prince! But despite these Prince-like trappings (which also include some more Purple Rain-ish costumes on the inside cover), Rick's still writing, producing, and arranging himself – hitting a groove that clearly inspired by the success of his Paisley Park competition, but which is also kind of a natural extension of the Rick James funk sound into the end of the 80s. Roxanne Shante and Big Daddy Kane make some guest appearances on the album – and titles include "Loosey's Rap", "Hypnotize", "I Believe In U", "In The Girl's Room", "Sherry Baby", "Love's Fire", "Wonderful", "So Tight", and "Sexual Luv Affair".

Bert JanschBirthday Blues ... LP
Reprise/Superior Viaduct, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $13.99 24.98
One of the greatest albums ever from UK genius Bert Jansch – cut as a solo set at a time when his fame was rising with the group Pentangle, and somewhat overlooked at the time! Yet all these many years later, we'd rank this one right up alongside important records of the period by Nick Drake – even though Jansch has a style that's completely his own – a bit ancient at times, somewhat bluesy on his guitar inflections, and set to this amazing voice that makes even the simplest lyric come across with a spooky sort of edge. Instrumentation is relatively spare – mostly Bert on guitar, joined by occasional players who include jazzman Ray Warleigh on alto and flute, and Duffy Power on harmonica – shaded in by producer Shel Talmy in ways that remind us of the lighter folksy numbers on the Donovan productions by Mickie Most. Titles include "The Bright New Year", "Tree Song", "Poison", "Wishing Well", "Blues", "I Am Lonely", and "Come Sing Me A Happy Song To Prove We Can All Get Along The Lumpy Bumpy Long & Dusty Road".

Bert JanschRosemary Lane ... LP
Reprise, 1971. Very Good ... $24.99
Tremendous work from Bert Jansch – an album that shows how much he'd evolved in just a few short years – both as a singer and as a musician, and as a completely unique talent on his own! The record has an instantly timeless feel – that mix of ancient inspiration and new freedoms unlocked by the small group of important UK folk musicians of which Jansch was a part – and the format has Bert really going back to the basics of his debut, with just vocals and guitar – but delivered with this incredible new presence that's very different than his work of the mid 60s! There's so many dark, subtle elements going on here – both in the guitar lines and the singing – it might be possible to initially overlook the genius of the record, which keeps on giving and giving for years, over many repeated listenings. Titles include "Tell Me What Is True Love", "A Dream A Dream A Dream", "Sarabanda", "Bird Song", "Sylvie", "Silly Woman", "Nobody's Bar", and "Allman". LP, Vinyl record album

Jethro TullStand Up ... LP
Reprise, 1969. Very Good Gatefold ... $7.99
Beautiful early work from Jethro Tull – a formative set that really has the group deepening both their themes and their music! There's still a bit of blues rock at the core – but also some richer, more lyrical modes too – and Ian Anderson does a perfect job of bridging both worlds with his sublime work on flute – an instrument that must have seemed like an odd lead for a rock group at the time, but which is no surprise in the same generation that artists like Herbie Mann and Roland Kirk were making their own hip records – not to mention the great Harold McNair, who was a UK contemporary of Andreson. The whole thing's great – a record that's ripe for rediscovery, and which really gives back year after year – and titles include "A New Day Yesterday", "Back To The Family", "Fat Man", "Reasons For Waiting", "Nothing Is Easy", and the classic instrumental "Bouree".

KinksArthur – Or The Fall & Decline Of The British Empire ... LP
Reprise, 1969. Very Good Gatefold ... $69.99
A true masterpiece of late 60s pop – music originally recorded for a TV special in 1969 – and one of the Kinks' greatest albums ever! The semi-concept album traces the woes, worries, and hopes of a British family, as one half is on the verge of emigration to Australia. The work comes out of the sort of songwriting that Ray Davies had been perfecting on albums like Village Green and Something Else – but the overall style is more sophisticated, yet not nearly as self-indulgent as some of the 70s concept clunkers. Instead, the songs are brilliantly tight, and stand on their own well past the concept of the original album. Titles include "Victoria", "Brainwashed", "Australia", "Shangri-La", "Mr Churchill Says", and "Yes Sir No Sir". LP, Vinyl record album

Little RichardKing Of Rock & Roll (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Reprise/Omnivore, 1971. New Copy ... $15.99 16.99
A much rootsier set than some of Little Richard's other work for Reprise Records – a record that almost goes back to the old days, but via the hipper styles of the early 70s! HB Barnum arranged and produced the set, but the groove is less funkier than some of Barnum's other work of the time – a bit more rockish in some of the rhythms and instrumentation, which is no surprise considering the title – with a nod back towards late 50s modes, but in that new-roots way that Warner was hitting with other artists of the period. Richard's vocals hold up very well in the setting – and apart from the original tunes "Green Power" and "King Of Rock & Roll", the album features versions of "Midnight Special", "Dancing In The Street", "Brown Sugar", and "Born On The Bayou". Includes 6 bonus tracks – "Open Up The Red Sea", "Still Miss Liza Jane", "In The Name (version 2)", "Why Don't You Love Me", and the instrumentals "Mississippi" and "Settin The Wods On Fire". CD

Richard arranged and produced the record himself – and it's a beautiful illustration of his genius – hardly dimmed at this point in his career, and if anything, really redefined for a new generation – with some razor-sharp grooves that are perfect for his hard-wailing vocals! The title cut – "The Rill Thing" – is a monster 10 minute instrumental jam, with a heavy funk sound that you can't even begin to imagine – and the rest of the set is pretty amazing too, with tracks that include "Spreadin' Natta What's The Matter", "Freedom Blues", "Two Time Loser", "Somebody Saw You", "Lovesick Blues", and "Greenwood Mississippi".

Titles include "Nuki Suki", "The Prophet Of Peace", "Thomasine", "Second Line", and "It Ain't What You Do It's The Way How You Do It". Includes the bonus tracks "Money Is", "Do It To It", and single edits of "Mockingbird Sally" and "Money Is". CD

Reprise/Rhino, 1974. Used 2CD ... $16.99
A gem of an album from Randy Newman – a masterpiece of understated with from the mid 70s, and one of his most fully-conceived records for Warner Brothers! The album offers up a vision of the south, past and present, through Newman's eyes – eyes that are partially clouded by the distance of the scene seen from the vantage point of smoggy LA, but which still manage to pull out various strands of life with surprising poignancy. It's easy to write this one off as some sort of slap against the face of the backward south in the 70s, but Newman actually approaches his subjects with some sort of subtle tenderness – not nearly as mean as you might think on first listen, as evidenced by the beautiful orchestrations he penned for the sessions. Titles include "Birmingham", "Marie", "Rednecks", "Louisiana 1927", "Rollin", "Back On My Feet Again", and "Wedding In Cherokee County". CD features a bonus demo version of "Marie" – and a great set of notes! Bonus disc is titled Johnny Cutler's Birthday, and includes 13 tracks! CD

The mood here is laidback and slightly folksy – but also augmented more by piano than by guitar, and recorded with a watery style that works wonderfully with Rapp's sad-tinged vocals.

An album of understated brilliance from the great John Renbourn – a set that mostly just features John on vocals and guitar, working through tunes of a traditional nature – yet delivering a record that's full of tremendously powerful moments! There's none of the hoke here that you might have gotten from a folk revival record from a decade before – and instead, Renbourn's bringing all the amazing new discoveries he and his contemporaries have unlocked in the acoustic guitar, as a way of opening up some of the darker corners and spookier elements of the tunes – none of which should be that strong on their own, but which work together here beautifully. Renbourn gets a bit of help from time to time – vocals from Dorris Henderson, harmonica from Pete Dyer, and drums from Terry Cox – but most of the set is just vocals and guitar, even more timeless in 1971 than it might have been before John plays a bit of sitar and harmonica, too – and titles include "Kokomo Blues", "Little Sadie", "Shake Shake Mama", 'The Cuckoo","Willy O Winsbury", "Faro Annie", and "Come On In My Kitchen".

The set features lots of acoustic guitar and percussion – and bold trumpet and flugelhorn solos by Shorty – on titles that include "Samba Do Lorinho", "Samba Triste", "O Amore E A Rosa", "Pao De Assucar", "So Um Amor", and "O Menino Desce O Morro".

Tunes all have this great rhythmic pulse – a way of leaping into a groove that has the piano and bass dancing together wonderfully – often with some cool vibes from Emil Richards, and loads of great reed lines from Bud Shank and Paul Horn! Some tracks feature a small combo, some feature a larger group – and the whole thing is wonderful – with energy that almost rivals the Clarke Boland Big Band with Gigi Campi.

EG/Reprise, 1979. Used ... $3.99
A brilliant little comeback album for Roxy Music – their first album in 4 years after Siren, and a well-done departure that takes off from older records without losing any of their greatness! In a way, the set's almost the group's Lodger – a similar effort to Bowie's record from the same time that reflects a move away from heavier styles of earlier years, but never loses the edge of the group's best work. Manifesto also reflects some of the lessons learned by Bryan Ferry on his solo records – a bit leaner and cleaner presentation of the songs – but the album itself is also strongly a group production effort, and certainly feels that way in its use of Phil Manzenera's great guitars and Andy Mackay's horn arrangements. Titles include "Ain't That So", "Stronger Through The Years", "Trash", "Manifesto", "Angel Eyes", "Spin Me Round", "Cry Cry Cry", and "My Little Girl". CD

Insanely fantastic! Ananda Shankar was one of the hippest sitar players of the 60s – an artist who was not only steeped in the strongest traditions of Indian music heard in other more mainstream players, but one who also had a keen ear for modder and funkier grooves of the time! This rare American set by Ananda is one of his greatest ever – a brilliant mix of funky backings and tripped out sitar work – done in a way that blends together soul, funk, and rock – all given a particularly cool Indian twist. The vibe is very much in the best funky Bollywood style – but was actually done years before most Bollywood funk – and the set includes great covers of "Jumpin Jack Flash" and "Light My Fire", plus great original tracks like "Sagar (The Ocean)", "Snow Flower", "Dance Indra", and "Metamorphosis".

✨✧ Frank SinatraStrangers In The Night ... LP
Reprise, 1966. Very Good ... $7.99
A key turning point for Frank Sinatra in the 60s – a record that got him firmly back on the charts with a great new sound! The leadoff title cut really sets the pace for the whole thing – a slyly syncopated groover that works perfectly with Sinatra's aging vocals – originally issued as a single, then used here as the cap of a whole album of subtle numbers that are perfect mid 60s Frank at his best! Ernie Freeman and Jimmy Bowen put together the title cut, but Nelson Riddle and Sonny Burke do a great job following the whole thing up – using a nice touch of organ in the mix, and lilting the bottom ever so slightly to swing things past some of the more lush Sinatra modes of years past. Titles include "Strangers In The Night", "Summer Wind", "Call Me", "On A Clear Day", "Downtown", "Yes Sir That's My Baby", "All Or Nothing At All", and "My Baby Just Cares For Me".

Reprise, 1962. Used ... $4.99
Sinatra-Basie is the inaugural effort from the 2 leaders and the stellar orchestra – and it's a great one.

Keely SmithSings The John Lennon/Paul McCartney Songbook ... LP
Reprise, 1964. Very Good+ ... $18.99
A groovy singer takes on the music of The Beatles – all with a sound that does a heck of a lot for both parties involved in the proceedings! Keely Smith was well into her solo career by the time of this set – having stepped away from Louis Prima, and soaring through some great albums on her own in the early 60s – of which this gem might be the capper! 1964 is a pretty early point to recognize the great potential of the songwriting team of Paul McCartney and John Lennon – but chalk that up to producer Jimmy Bowen, who does a superb job of bringing in some of the groovier styles that Reprise Records was getting hip to at the time – served up here courtesy of arrangers Ernie Freeman and Benny Carter. Both Freeman and Carter have a slight current of soul at times, which makes for a great match with Keely's vocals – on titles that include "Please Please Me", "This Girl", "If I Fell", "She Loves You", "World Without Love", "Hard Day's Night", "Do You Want To Know A Secret", "I Want To Hold Your Hand", and "Can't Buy Me Love" – all sounding surprisingly great as jazz tunes!

Sopwith CamelMiraculous Hump Returns From The Moon (marble smoke vinyl pressing) ... LP
Reprise/Real Gone, 1973. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $25.99 26.99
A really wonderful little record – by a group who should have been much bigger than they were! Despite the fact that these guys are an obscure rock band with a silly name, the record's a perfect example of the subtly soulful work that was coming out of various west coast sources during the 70s – the kind of album-oriented work that yielded gems for play on underground FM radio, but which has been mostly lost to the shifting sands of time, save for some well-placed rescue in the reissue scene. The gem on this one is the smooth stepper "Fazon", but the album's got a few other nice ones too, with a jazzy tinge that's almost in debt to Mose Allison or Ben Sidran – that kind of cool blend of many elements with younger ideas that was bubbling up on the Bay Area scene. Titles include "Dancin Wizard", "Monkeys On the Moon", "Sneaky Smith", and "Astronaut Food". LP, Vinyl record album

Jeremy SteigJeremy & The Satyrs ... LP
Reprise, 1968. Sealed ... $14.99
One of the first albums ever from ultra-cool flute man Jeremy Steig – a jazz album at its core, but one with some rock and folk elements as well! The instrumentation is heavy on Steig's funky flute – already blown here with that breathy quality that would come out even more strongly on later records – although the instrumentation here is somewhat fuller than on Jeremy's straight jazz records – given the presence of Warren Bernhardt on keyboards and Adrian Guillery on guitar and harmonica. The great Eddie Gomez is the bassist for the outing – and brings in some of his best bottom-bumping moments – although again, the interplay with Steig isn't as stark as on later records. And although there's a bit of vocals on the record – sung by Bernhardt and Guillery – they've got a raspy appeal that shows that Jeremy was trying to reach out towards other audiences before going straight jazz. Some tracks are instrumentals, though, with an even heavier focus on flute – and titles include "Mean Black Snake", "In The World Of Glass Teardrops", "Satyrized", "Let's Go To The Movie Show", "Lovely Child Of Tears", "Foreign Release", "Lovely Child Of Tears", and "The Do It".

Tiny TimGod Bless Tiny Tim ... LP
Reprise, 1968. Very Good ... $8.99
One of the weirdest albums of the 60s, and a surprisingly big hit for the legendary Tiny Tim – a character then know to TV audiences for his appearances on Laugh-In and other shows – but an artist who sounds surprisingly culture-counter all these years later! The album's got some wonderfully odd elements in the production and arrangements – the former by Richard Perry, the latter by Artie Butler – all in that hip faux-nostalgia style that was huge in the Warner/Reprise universe of the time. And although Tim's certainly weirder and maybe goofier than Harper's Bizarre, Van Dyke Parks, and Randy Newman – you can definitely hear a through line to that scene in this album – as well as links to other odd 60s moments by folks like Brute Force or John Simon. Tunes are both old and new, and all are completely remade by Tiny Time – songs that include the hit "Tip Toe Thru The Tulips", plus a fantastic cover of the Biff Rose tune "Fill Your Heart", and "The Coming Home Party", "The Other Side", "Daddy Daddy What Is Heaven Like", "Welcome To My Dream", "The Viper", and "On The Old Front Porch".

Wilderness RoadSold For Prevention Of Disease Only ... LP
Reprise, 1973. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $4.99
A rootsy group from the Chicago scene, but one with a fair amount of wit, too – a subtle political agenda that's buried a bit beneath more rocking modes, and which really helps set these guys apart from the pack! The songwriting is often pretty smart, at least from a social perspective – couched amidst riffs and rhythms that are more mainstream overall, yet which know how to underscore the right punch of the group's intentions. A key illustration of this fact is the longer "Gospel" track – kind of a mini-suite aimed at Christian radio – but the elements bubble forth on other tunes that include "Rock Garden", "Pot Of Gold", "Reno", and "The Authentic British Blues".
