Sammy Davis JrSammy Davis Jr Sings The Big Ones For Young Lovers ... LP
Reprise, 1964. Very Good+ ... $5.99
A near-lost album from Sammy's years at Reprise – and an album that's got that nice bouncey style that the label was using with Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra in the 60s! A lot of the thanks goes to producer Sonny Burke, who inflects Sammy's vocals with a punched-up set of rhythms that makes even the most familiar numbers come out groovy – a factor that Sam's certainly aware of, as he reaches to the top with that "yeah, man" style that helps to completely transform some of the tunes. Titles include great versions of "The Days Of Wine & Roses", "Not For Me", "I Wanna Be Around", "It's All In The Game", "Fools Rush In", and "Choose". LP, Vinyl record album
(Tri-color stereo pressing, including the Reprise inner sleeve.)

Sammy Davis JrShelter Of Your Arms ... LP
Reprise, Early 60s. Very Good+ ... $2.99
One of our favorite albums by Sammy Davis Jr ever – a real lost treasure from his early years at Reprise! The record's got a jazzy,s winging style that's really great – and features the tasty hit "Bee Bom", a scatting masterpiece that's one of Sammy's best tunes ever – plus some other lively numbers, all given the beautiful Sammy D spin! Includes a stellar take on "I Married An Angel", plus "Guys & Dolls", "Come On Strong", "Make Someone Happy", and "Some Days Everything Goes Wrong". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original steamboat logo pressing. Cover has a sticker spot.)

Sammy Davis Jr & Carmen McRaeBoy Meets Girl ... LP
Decca, 1957. Near Mint- ... $19.99
A real classic from Sammy Davis Jr & Carmen McRae! Given Sammy's great talent for personal interaction on the stage, as heard often on his key Rat Pack recordings, he's a real natural for this sort of duet mode – as he manages to talk and sing his way through the tunes beautifully, really opening up Carmen a heck of a lot, and getting her past the staid, serious mode of most of her 50s albums. Titles include "People Will Say We're In Love", "Happy To Make Your Acquaintance", "You're The Top", "Cheek To Cheek", "Baby It's Cold Outside", and "Tea For Two". LP, Vinyl record album
(Small black label mono pressing with deep groove, including the plastic Decca inner sleeve.)

Sammy Davis Jr & Count BasieOur Shining Hour ... CD
Verve, Mid 60s. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A brilliant album that follows on the trend that was begun by Sinatra and Tony Bennett – one that takes strong jazz backings from Count Basie to push a singer past the usual pop format! Sammy didn't always get backing this strong – and the album's got Quincy Jones handling the arrangements for Basie in the same mode the he used on the Sinatra/Basie sides for Reprise. Titles include "The Girl From Ipanema", "She's A Woman", "New York City Blues", "Work Song", and "Blues For Mr Charlie" – and the album even features Sammy doing a bit of tap dancing! CD

✨✧ Shirley Maclaine/Sammy Davis JrSweet Charity ... LP
Decca, Late 60s. Sealed Gatefold ... $3.99
Ok, so this is a musical – not really our usual bag – but it does contain one of the greatest Sammy Davis Jr songs of all time: the sweetly swinging "Rhythm Of Life", which Sammy sings in character as "Big Daddy", a hip strutting street preacher who kicks it with a groovy punchy sound! Shirley's vocals aren't that great – kind of thin and wispy – but she does get some really great songs, including "I'm A Brass Band", "My Personal Property", and "Where Am I Going" – plus the over-tired "If My Friends Could See Me Now". Orchestrations are by Joseph Gershenson, and the album also has one nice groovy instrumental – "The Pompeii Club", a nice little frug number! LP, Vinyl record album
(Stereo pressing. Shrinkwrap has a hole in the top rigth corner. Cover has a small cutout hole.)

Billy May/Sammy Davis Jr.Johnny Cool ... CD
Ryko/MGM, 1963. Used ... $6.99
Fab reissue of this jazzy soundtrack from the early 60s. The film's a cool gangster flick that starred Joey Bishop, Jim Backus, Mort Sahl, and Telly Savalas (what a cast!) – and also featured Sammy Davis Jr., who sings two cuts from the score, "The Ballad of Johnny Cool", and the amazing "Bee Boom", one of his best from the 60s! The rest of the soundtrack is jazzy stuff by Billy May, who's probably best known to the world for his classic work with Sinatra at Capitol in the 50s. Titles include "Borrow A Knife", "The Lizard", "Window Washer", "Dare's Affair", and "The Coolest Pad". Deluxe version, with a huge booklet and great photos! CD

✨✧ Sammy Davis JrAs Long As She Needs Me ... CD
Collectors Choice/Reprise, Early 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Wonderful Sammy from his years at Reprise – and a beautiful album cut in collaboration with arranger Marty Paich! Marty had a swinging, jazzy style that always brought out the best in Sam – even on an album of fuller, mellower tracks such as these. The title hit is done by Sammy in a heartfelt style that showed that he could be every bit the pop crooner as some of his contemporaries, and the album follows in a similar mode – but also throws in some more upbeat numbers that keep things fresh and grooving. Titles include "Song From Two For The Seesaw", "We Kiss In A Shadow", "Love Is The Tender Trap", "Back In Your Own Back Yard", "There Was A Tavern In The Town", and "Falling In Love With Love". CD

VariousMod Jazz Rides Again ... CD
Kent (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $12.99 18.99
Sammy Davis Jr is looking pretty darn hip on the cover – and all the artists inside are sounding pretty darn hip as well – coming together during the glory days of soul jazz, at a time when blues, vocals, and R&B were also criss-crossing into other styles too! There's an upbeat, soul-drenched, ultra-cool vibe to the whole thing – not too-familiar retro jazz numbers, but instead a wealth of rare cuts that often come from the sort of 7" singles that change hands for big money in the funky 45 underground, next to obscure album cuts too – mixed with the kind of unreleased material that the Ace/Kent label has always done such a good job of digging up! The package explodes with groovy musical delights – and titles include "What Is love" by Bobby Jenkins, "Out House" by Eddie Bridges & His Lowriders, "Empire City" by Gene Walker & The Combo, "Pushin The Button Of Soul" by Hank Jacobs, "Fat Man" by Montego Joe, "The Bold" by Russell Evans & The Nite Hawks, "Hey Mrs Jones" by Jimmy Witherspoon, "Poppa Nickel" by The Tempo Rhythms, "Sherry's Party" by Ray Johnson, "Hot Tamale Man" by Harold Betters, "Shank & Grits" by Ray Shanklin, "Pluckin" by Jimmy Mayes & The Soul Breed, "East 24th Ave" by Billy Graham & The Escalators, and "Do The Thing" by Gate Wesley.

✨✧ Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, & OthersGuys & Dolls – Reprise Repertory Theatre ... LP
Reprise, Early 60s. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
One of our favorite recordings of the score to Guys & Dolls – an imaginary "cast" recording, done by Sinatra and friends in the early days of his Reprise label! The album does a good job of going back and offering up newer, and in many cases stronger, versions of the tunes that were used in the film – and titles include a great reading of "Sue Me" by Allan Sherman & Debbie Reynolds, "Luck Be A Lady" sung by Frank, "Guys & Dolls" sung by Frank and Dean Martin, "Sit Down You're Rocking The Boat" by Sammy Davis Jr, "The Oldest Established Crap Game" by Sinatra, Martin, & Bing Crosby, and "More I Cannot Wish You" by Clark Dennis. LP, Vinyl record album
(Mono tri color pressing.)
