Silhouette BrownSpread That (album/Bruno E's drop tha' funk mix)/Looking Back (reprise) ... 12-inch
Ether (UK), 2005. Near Mint- (pic cover)... Just Sold Out!
Sweetly spacey soul from Silhouette Brown – one of the catchiest tunes off the all-great debut album, remixed here by Bruno E! Bruno really changes up the rhythms of the tune, but still preserves the cosmic quality – letting bass and beats roll around one another nicely, as keyboards drift and float, and Deborah Jordan's great lead vocals glide over the top! 12-inch, Vinyl record

VariousThat'll Flat Git It! Volume 28 – Rockabilly & Rock N Roll From The Vaults Of Warner Brothers & Reprise Records ... CD
Warner/Bear Family (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $13.99 22.99
A totally great entry in this always-great series – and one that looks at a slice of raunchy rock that's a bit different than usual! The Warner Brothers label started up right at the end of the 50s – after most of the other rock powerhouse imprints – and they also had more of an ear for pop and mainstream sounds, given their Hollywood home. Yet they also quickly found a way to turn out some really remarkable 45s – music that was maybe even just recorded with leftover studio time, or between the bigger projects on the label – funded by bigger money from films, and often done in a top-shelf studio setting! This legacy of Warner isn't nearly as well-known as their 60s pop and vocal material, but it's equally groovy – if not more so – and gets fantastic treatment here from Bear Family, who not only present a whopping 30 tracks, but also accompany the whole thing with a wonderful booklet that's filled with notes, photos, and record images. The set even includes some surprising rockers by unlikely sources – and titles include "Shimmy Shake" by Billy Land, "The Swing" by Johnny Carroll, "Teen Beat" by Don Ralke, "Road Hog" by Johnny Zorro, "Hanna Lee" by Shelly Dane, "The Fool" by Bob Luman, "Lucille" by The Everly Brothers, "Baby Please Don't Go" by Troyce Key with Eddie Cochran, "Drum Twist" by Buddy Harman, "Saturday Night Fish Fry" by Eddie & Betty, and "Forbidden City" by John Buck & His Blazers.

✨✧ MC SquaredTantalizing Colours – The Reprise Recordings ... CD
Reprise/Now Sounds (UK), 1967/1968. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Glittering sunshine pop throughout! MC Squared has a name that may sound like a weak late 80s crossover rapper, but the group's a killer harmony act from late 60s Reprise Records – produced to perfection by Lenny Waronoker, and given the same mix of tight studio and hip undercurrents that you'd find in the hippest of the late 60s Warner generation – that slightly sinister edge that can always make LA pop of the time go a lot deeper than you might expect! This package is a true treasure trove of the group's work – their one full album for Reprise, plus bonus tracks from singles – all with a sound that you'd stack proudly next to work by artists like Roger Nichols or Paul Williams at the time. Titles include "The Dolphins", "Adults Only", "Bornatzatt", "Ghost Of Man", "Miss Abercrombie", "Do You Care", "Smilin", "Karneeval", and "Tantalizing Colours". Bonus tracks include "Or Something", "SST", "My Mind Goes High", "Smilin (mono)", and "Time Will Equalize". CD

Warner/Soulmusic.com (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 6 CDs ... Out Of Stock
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!

John CaleAcademy In Peril ... CD
Reprise/Edsel (UK), 1972. Used ... $11.99
One of the coolest, most unusual albums ever from the great John Cale – a set that draws strongly on his roots in the New York underground of the mid 60s – including time spent with Tony Conrad and other experimentalists! The record is almost all instrumental – and has Cale mixing modes that include spare passages that are very evocative and contemplative, with fuller orchestral outbursts that are somewhere in the territory of his material with Terry Riley, but more freewheeling and less minimalist overall. Piano is the main instrument on many numbers, and Cale stuns us with his command of the keyboard – and the album features one striking vocal performance on the song "King Harry", alongside other titles that include "The Philosopher", "Brahms", "Legs Larry At Television Centre", "John Milton", and "Intro/Days Of Steam".

Captain Beefheart & His Magic BandLick My Decals Off, Baby ... LP
Reprise/Straight, 1970. Very Good+ ... $34.99
One of best ever records by gonzo rock genius Captain Beefheart and his incredible Magic Band – the proper follow up to Trout Mask Replica – and they;re still at the height of their powers! Art Tripp's marimba and percussion gives the group an extra rhythmic complexity, not that they EVER lacked for that, even while the bands strips down some of the more meandering tendencies of Trout. They don't skim on the aural art, even with the more focused approach, making one a leaner effort, but just as much a masterpiece. Tracks include "Lick My Decals Off, Baby", "I Love You, You Big Dummy", "Bellerin' Plain", "Petrified Forest", and "The Smithsonian Institute Blues (Or The Big Dig)". This may very well be their finest moment. LP, Vinyl record album

Benny Carter/Louis Armstrong/Sammy Davis JrMan Called Adam ... LP
Reprise, 1966. Very Good+ ... $6.99
A nice little soundtrack from the prime years of the Rat Pack – for a film that featured Sammy Davis Jr as a trumpet player! The overall score features work by Benny Carter – nice and jazzy, with the 60s swing he was bringing to his best work at the time – and on top of this, Sammy Sings a bit, and so does Mel Torme and Louis Armstrong! Nat Adderley handles the trumpet solos for Sammy's role – blowing out in front of larger backings from Carter with a great sense of color and tone – quite different from some of his other work of the 60s. And while the jazz tracks alone are worth the price of admission, the vocal ones are wonderful too – and include "All That Jazz" by Mel Torme, "I Want To Be Wanted" and "Whisper To One" by Sammy Davis Jr, and "Back Of Town Blues" and "Someday Sweetheart" by Louis Armstrong. Instrumental titles include "Crack Up", which is a great variation on Cy Coleman's "Playboy Theme" – plus "Claudia", "Night Walk", and "Soft Touch". LP, Vinyl record album

Cold BloodThriller ... CD
Reprise/Collectables, 1973. Used ... $9.99
A great later album from this legendary San Francisco crossover soul combo! The set moves off the style of some of their earlier work for Reprise, and Cold Blood are really opening up their sound here – still staying quite soulful, but also going for the fuller finish of the west coast early 70s scene – and not trying to sound so much like a straight soul cover band. The shift is a good one – and while the mellower cuts may be a bit too mellow at times, the group's also still got enough of a groove on the best numbers, and makes good use of the studio to work up their funky playing. Includes a nice cover of "Kissing My Love", plus versions of "Baby I Love You", "Sleeping", and "I'll Be Long Gone". CD

Electric PrunesI Had Too Much To Dream (Last Night) (colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
Reprise, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99
An early moment of genius from The Electric Prunes – and exactly the kind of record that shows why they were a cut above their contemporaries, and why Warner really backed them strongly right from the start! There's a depth here that rivals some of the group's Sunset Strip contemporaries – and although David Axelrod's not working with them on the record, there's still lots of dark corners and sharp edges – really thoughtful sounds that are spun out wonderfully on fuzzy guitars and organ, with some nicely subtle drums in the rear. Tracks include "I Has Too Much To Dream (Last Night)", "Try Me On For Size", "Get Me To the World On Time", "About A Quarter To Nine", and "Luvin". LP, Vinyl record album

Electric Prunes (with David Axelrod)Mass In F Minor ... LP
Reprise, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $14.99
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". 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

Duke EllingtonEllington '65 ... LP
Reprise, 1965. Near Mint- ... $7.99
A surprisingly great album from Duke Ellington – hardly the kind of ear-opening set you might expect under the guise of a bunch of 60s pop covers! Sure, you might call it a sellout – as The Duke's playing arrangements of mid 60s pop tunes like "Fly Me to The Moon", "More", "The Second Time Around", "Blowin In The Wind", and "Never On Sunday" – but the sound is actually pretty darn hip, with a strong swing to the whole album, and a good groove that brings life into the songs on the set. The overall feel is like some of the hipper Basie backings at the time – very in the pocket playing, and short jazzy renditions of songs that we like in any form – but which come off here even more nicely with some real jazz touches from the Ellington group! LP, Vinyl record album

Duke EllingtonSymphonic Ellington ... LP
Reprise, 1963. Very Good+ ... $8.99
An incredible record – and key proof that Ellington was growing even more in the 60s than he had a decade before! Duke's working here with a core orchestra of his own, plus a huge amount of added players from orchestras in Paris, Hamburg, Stockholm, and Milan – all working together in a sound that's symphonic, but still pretty darn jazzy – and which comes off with a lightness that you'd hardly ever expect. There's a depth to the record that's undeniable – especially on the horn solos by Johnny Hodges, Paul Gonsalves, and Jimmy Hamilton – which snake through the larger orchestrations with a sinister edge that really blows us away. The whole thing's a tremendous thrill – the kind of record that's filled with delights that we never expected, and which appeals to us on so many different levels. Titles include the 3-part suite "Night Creature", plus "Non-Violent Integration", "Harlem", and "La Scala She Too Pretty To Be Blue". LP, Vinyl record album

Bert JanschBirthday Blues ... LP
Reprise/Superior Viaduct, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 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".

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

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".

Linda LewisHeart Strings ... LP
Reprise, 1974. Near Mint- ... $9.99
Great stuff from Linda Lewis – one of the sweetest soul talents of the 70s! Linda's got a great jazzy vocal style that's somewhere between Minnie Riperton and other more folksy singers, like Ellen McIlwaine, and she's really got a knack for writing great little tracks that have a good groove to them. This album's sort of a combination of tracks from some of her other Reprise albums, plus a few others that didn't appear elsewhere. It includes her classic "Sideways Shuffle", which is always a big hit with the groove scene, plus lots of other nice ones, including "Fathoms Deep", "On The Stage", "I Dunno", and "I'm In Love Again".

✨✧ Lord FinesseReturn Of The Funky Man ... LP
Giant/Reprise, 1992. Very Good ... $39.99
We know we spend a lot of space on these pages propping up early 90s hip hop, but you have to admit it was the salad days of the East coast. Finesse's second LP's no exception, with tight lyrics and beats – keeping it real before it became a cliche – a DITC classic that we never grow tired of, and has been far to hard to get a hold of on vinyl for years. Timeless production that lives up to the title by Showbiz, Diamond D and Finesse. 12 tracks counting the intro, including "Party Over Here", "Yes You May", "Return Of The Funky Man", "Fat For The 90s", "Stop Sweating The Next Man", "That's How Smooth I Am", "Praise The Lord", "I Like My Girls With A Boom", "Hey Look At Shorty", "Isn't He Something" and "Funky On The Fast Tip".

HP Lovecraft drummer Michael Tegza soldiers on with a new group as Lovecraft – with a tighter sound that blends hard driving drums and guitars with more delicate, harmony vocal accented songcraft! It's a far cry from the psychedelic experimentation of HP Lovecraft – but it's actually a pretty impressive rock record in its own right – prefiguring the later 70s rock sounds long before the better known giants of the decade! Titles include "We Can All Have It Together", "Brother I Wonder", "Love Has Come To Me", "Will I Know When My Time Comes", "Two Step Hustle", "Lady Come Softly", "The Dawn", "Never Gonna Go Back", "Dear" and "Hopefully".

Miriam MakebaPata Pata – The Hit Sound Of Miriam Makeba (mono & stereo mixes) ... LP
Reprise/Strut (UK), 1967. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $26.99 28.99
A huge breakthrough moment for Miriam Makeba – a South African singer who'd been bringing her music to the American scene for a number of years, but really took off in new soulful directions with this album! Previously, Makeba was maybe more confined to the world of folk – mostly recording with acoustic styles in a stripped-down mode – but this record has her soaring on arrangements from American studio talents Jimmy Wisner and Jerry Ragovoy, the latter of whom produced the record too – and mixes in some very hip New York soul modes, and even some larger charts that really expand the sound. The huge hit on the set is "Pata Pata" – a tune that firmly put Makeba in the memory of American music – but the whole album is great overall, and other titles include "Click Song Number 1", "A Piece Of Ground", "West Wind", "Ha Po Zamani", and "Jol'inkomo".

One of those soundtracks that outlived the life of the film – or at least the theme did! "Emily" is one of the best ballads to be penned in the 60s – a dreamy number offered up here in a number of different ways by Johnny Mandel – with strings, reeds, and in larger orchestral passages. The work is very similar to Mandel's sublime score for The Sandpiper – another film that had a hugely popular theme, but which kind of tanked as a cinematic outing! Titles include "The Next Day", "Condolence Call", "Surprise", "Tea Party", and "Vacation In Sussex". LP, Vinyl record album

Titles include "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry", "Face In A Crowd", "Things", "I Walk The Line", "My Heart Cries For You", "Any Time", and "Shutters & Boards". LP, Vinyl record album

The music's got Dean very much in the best of his Reprise country-styled singing – with production by Jimmy Bowen that makes strong use of electric bass on the bottom, and arrangements from Ernie Freeman and Gene Page that keep things nice and bouncy even on the slow tunes. The album's got a few original instrumentals – like "The Silencers", "Lord You Made The Night Too Long", and "Lovey Kravezit" – plus Dean doing great versions of standards that include "Side By Side", "Glory Of Love", and "South Of The Border".

The style's a great reminder that Martin could be as good of a ballad singer as he was an upbeat jokester and hipster – a quality that didn't always some through as strongly in his Rat Pack years. Backing is by a cool jazz combo – with Barney Kessel on guitar, Ken Lane on piano, Red Mitchell on bass, and Irv Cottler on drums – and titles include "I'll Buy That Dream", "I'm Confessin", "Blue Moon", "I Don't Know Why", "Hands Across The Table", "Smile", and the original recording of "Everybody Loves Somebody".

A really cool cooker from The Meters – recorded during their post-Josie run for Warner Brothers, but with this tight vibe that still holds all their funky New Orleans roots intact! The sound is a bit more expanded here – not in a commercial way, but just in a style that has the group trying out more things – some interesting rhythms, offbeat guitar passages, and maybe even more of a vocal presence – although it's clearly the drums and basslines that are still driving the whole thing along! Production is by Allen Toussaint and Marshall Sehorn – again in that great style they were hitting at Warner – and titles include "Soul Island", "Flower Song", "Gettin Funkier All the Time", "Do the Dirt", "Cabbage Alley", and "Stay Away" – plus a version of Neil Young's "Birds"!

Miss Abrams & The Strawberry Point 4th GradeMiss Abrams & The Strawberry Point 4th Grade Class ... LP
Reprise, 1970. Very Good+ ... $4.99
A pretty great record from one of the coolest school teachers you could ever hope to have – the lovely Miss Rita Abrams, a hippie who was teaching in Marin County at the start of the 70s! The set's a project done by Abrams with her fourth grade class – a set that mostly features original tunes penned by Rita, filled with joy, hope, and the sort of optimism that characterized the Marin County scene of the post-Haight years – and performed with a cool blend of acoustic instrumentation next to Abrams keyboards – with some larger arrangements from Ed Bogas, who'd later work on hip soundtracks for Fantasy Records, across the Bay. There's nothing hokey about the set at all – as the tunes are great, and the kid-quality of the vocals is really kept to a minimum – more used to underscore the warmth in Rita's lead, and surprisingly never cloying at all – a lot like some of the best singer/songwriter projects on Reprise at the time, especially given Rita's cool electric keyboards. Titles include the cool single "Mill Valley" – plus "Floating Away", "Wonder", "Building A Heaven On Earth", "Running In The Green Grass", "Sweet Summertime", and "I Never Asked".

Randy NewmanRandy Newman (original cover) ... LP
Reprise, 1969. Near Mint- ... $11.99
An insanely wonderful first album from Randy Newman – and a perfect example of the way his unique style was a key confluence of all the best elements simmering underneath both late 60s LA and late 60s Warner Brothers! There's an instantly nostalgic quality to the record, but one that's nicely undercut by Newman's familiar sense of wit – a bit more subtle here, and presented with amazing backings from Van Dyke Parks – who almost brings in a lightly symphonic touch at times. The work's almost in the vein of hipper jazz sides by Bob Dorough or Dave Frishberg at the time – and although some of the tunes are familiar from later versions, they still sound best here in Randy's originals. Titles include "Love Story", "So Long Dad", "I Think He's Hiding", "Laughing Boy", "Cowboy", "The Beehive State", "Davy The Fat Boy", and "Bet No One Ever Hurt This Bad". LP, Vinyl record album

Incredible work from Nico – easily one of her most haunting albums ever, and a huge step forward even from the sublime Chelsea Girl record! John Cale produced and arranged the album, and plays some extra-spooky harmonium throughout – an instrument that's got the same low, dead tones as Nico's vocals – which makes for a wonderfully haunting blend! Parts of the record echo the minimal explorations that Cale did with Terry Riley, but in a different way – with heroin definitely playing strongly as part of the aesthetic. The album's a gem through and through – definitely one of the few crucial solo works from Nico – and titles include "My Only Child", "All That Is My Own", "Afraid", "Janitor Of Lunacy", and "Abschied".

A great step forward for Tom Paxton – his first album on the Reprise label, and a set that really pushes the best post-folk modes of the singer! Tom's in this very dark setting here – still singing and playing acoustic guitar, but draped with these mature elements from a well-chosen group of accompanists – which includes some especially great sounds from David Horowitz on piano, organ, and melodica – elements which mix with some light string touches to really bring a moody vibe to the record – maybe more Brit late 60s folk at times than much of Paxton's earlier material. Titles include "I Had To Shoot That Rabbit", "Icarus", "Prayin For Snow", "How Come The Sun", "She's Far Away", "Little Lost Child", and "A Sailor's Life". CD also features the bonus Tom Paxton EP from 1967 – much more folksy overall, with original tunes that include "The Marvelous Toy", "Beau John", "Deep Fork River", and "My Dog's Better Than Your Dog".

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.

Frank RosolinoTurn Me Loose ... LP
Reprise, 1961. Very Good+ ... $28.99
One of the rarest albums by Frank Rosolino – and a surprisingly great vocal set as well! The tunes are short, but Frank manages to both sing and turn in his usual trombone solo work here – and while the latter is great, we especially love the former! Frank's vocals have a raspy, playful quality that's a bit like Jack Sheldon's singing – and as with some of the later Sheldon albums, this one's a great illustration of the under-recorded side of some of the talents of players on the LA scene – their "entertainer" personas that were often used when working the bandstand in a live environment. And if you're suspicious about the vocals, don't be – because Frank is really great here, and manages to transform the tunes heavily – taking old standards and playfully inflecting them with new life and a rough edge – a bit similar to work by Bob Dorough or Johnny Watson (for his Chess session) on similar material. The rest of the group is a quartet that features Charles Berghofer on bass, Victor Feldman on piano, and Irv Cottler on drums – and titles include "It Had To Be You", "I Cover The Waterfront", "Whatcha Gonna Do On Monday", "Come Rain Or Come Shine", "It Had To Be You", and "Please Don't Bug Me".

San Sebastian Strings/Rod McKuen/Anita KerrFor Lovers ... LP
Reprise, 1969. Near Mint- ... $1.99
An amazing document of adult love – as important to the easy generation as Barry White's work was to the soul crowd – and the kind of record that makes you willing to throw away all your prejudices about Rod McKuen! The set's got a simple, snakey sort of approach – one that uses electric bass underneath light string arrangements by Anita Kerr – in a way that has the same sexy, slinky appeal as some of the best mellow easy from the end of the 60s – that period when the genre had firmly shaken off the mood music audience of housewives, and was hitting a younger, lustier crowd on the FM airwaves. There's a compressed perfection to this album that's beyond belief – not just in Kerr's sublime arrangements, but also in the incredible interpretation of McKuen's writings by Joey Benson – spoken into the microphone in a way that makes a simple whisper speak volumes, and which has this breathy, Bacharach-era brilliance that's dripping with mature sexuality. McKuen's words are presented beautifully by Benson – given just the right pauses, phrasing, and power to unlock a playfully illustrative sense that doesn't always come through in other collaborations with Anita Kerr. A real lost treasure – the kind of record we never expected we'd ever like at all – but which has held us rapt with its brilliance – almost a Scott Walker for the American easy crowd of the late 60s! Titles include "Foreign Movies", "Why I Follow The Tigers", "Love Hasn't Any Windows", "Make A Bigger Circle With A Softer Touch", "For Lovers", "No Loving Without Losing", and "Looking Up Through Wednesday's Silence".

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 Sinatra & Count BasieIt Might As Well Be Swing ... CD
Reprise, Early 60s. Used ... $6.99
One of Sinatra's greatest records ever – pure genius all the way through! Frank's backed here by the orchestra of Count Basie, with some incredible arrangements by Quincy Jones that really have a jazzy, syncopated kick to them. The move seems to be an unintentional way of covering for Frank's slightly failing pipes – but it also picks up on a seminal beat change in 60s pop, the same sort of gentle snapping groove that you'd find in the best work by Bacharach, a shift that really infuses Frank's vocals with a whole new sound, one that shows that he's ready to keep on growing and growing after being stuck in a Nelson Riddle rut. All tracks are superb – hip 60s pop and showtunes, like "I Believe In You", "Fly Me To the Moon", "More", "The Good Life", "Wives & Lovers", and "I Wanna Be Around". CD

The aforementioned tune is as incredible a track as either Nancy or Lee ever produced, but the album features other duet gems including "Jackson" with Lee, "Things" with Dino, and "Younger Than Springtime" with Frank – plus Nancy's sweet solo tunes "I Gotta Get Out Of This Town", "Wait Till You See Him", "Friday's Child", "This Town", and "What I Say". LP, Vinyl record album
(Sealed 60s pressing! Cover has a cut corner.)

Reprise, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $19.99
Though one of her groovy Hazlewood produced albums, she only does two Hazlewood-penned tunes on this one: "Coastin", and "Sugar Town". The rest of the songs are the old-timey standards like "Sweet Georgia Brown", "Vagabond Shoes", "Let's Fall In Love", "Oh! You Beautiful Doll" and "Hard Hearted Hannah", though you might not guess that from the hot front cover featuring Nancy posing in a mod pink bikini. LP, Vinyl record album
(Mono pressing. Cover has light wear.)
