Johnny FarnhamRose Coloured Glasses – The Early Years 1967 to 1970 ... CD
Teensville (Australia), Late 60s. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
A fantastic full collection of work from Johnny Farnham – a singer who became a huge star on the Australian scene of the 70s, but who never broke as big on our shores up north! Hearing the quality of these tracks, it's a bit hard to figure out why we never heard more from Farnham during these years – as the songs are tremendous, and mix a sense of tunefulness with whimsical production touches and arrangements – in ways that maybe echo contemporary music both by the late 60s The Bee Gees and Hollies, with maybe just a touch of Herman's Hermits thrown into the mix! The songs are mostly upbeat, jaunty, and super-catchy – delivered with a positive vibe that lives up to the title, and supported with the kind of detailed notes and commitment to great tracks that we've really come to love from the Teensville label. Titles include "Mr Whippy", "Two", "Susan Jones", "Sadie The Cleaning Lady", "Miss Elaine ES Jones", "Painting A Shadow", "Pay The Waiter", "Mirror Of My Mind", "Comic Conversation", "Ain't Society Great", and "Friday Kind Of Monday".

Gibsons/CymbalineGibsons Vs Cymbaline – 60s UK Harmony Pop Battle Royale (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Teensville (Australia), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
A 60s harmony pop spectacular – featuring work from two different groups who recorded on the UK scene, and who each only issued seven singles in the process! First are The Gibsons, a quartet with strong harmonies that echo an earlier era in pop, but who work with lots of cool 60s jangle rock elements in their music – sharp guitars and keyboards, romping rhythms, and other sonic touches that really make them sound wonderfully groovy overall – on tunes that include "Two Kinds Of Lovers", "The Magic Book", "She's Not Like Any Other Girl", "City Life", "Lazy Summer Day", "Any Time That You're Lonely", "Born To Be Free", and "Ode To A Dolls House". The Cymbaline have a sound that's maybe more rockish right from the start – vocals that are warm and sunny, but grafted onto tunes with a stronger guitar base at the core – which really helps uncover some of the darkness in their style. Titles include "Top Girl", "Please Little Girl", "Peanuts & Chewy Macs", "Fire", "Turn Around", "Down By The Seaside", "Found My Girl", "Matrimonial Fears", "Comin Home Baby", and "Where Did Love Go Wrong". CD also features two tracks from an earlier incarnation of The Gibsons – "That's What I Want" and "Let's Try Again" by The Cicadas. CD

Barry GordonWorld Is Mine – The Pop Recordings 1964 to 1971 ... CD
Teensville (Australia), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
Surprising pop treasures from Barry Gordon – a singer who cracked the charts when very young, with a novelty Christmas hit – and also a young actor in a mix of films and TV shows – yet here, a strong singer of pop material – with a wonderfully huge legacy that finally gets proper release on this CD! Barry's voice goes through some nice changes over these years – echoing some Brill Building uptown soul modes at some points, more conventionally poppy at others, and then picking up both strands of folk rock and UK-influenced styles as the 60s move on – a great range that only gets better as the CD moves on. Gordon also increasingly wrote more of his own material, too – especially towards the end of the disc, which features the full lineup from his 1971 Capitol concept album Pieces Of Time. Titles include "The Days Of Pearly Spencer", "Instant Replay Yesterday", "The House That Love Built", "Let Me Try", "Go Back Little Tear", "True Love Can Never Die", "Talk Talk Talk", "A House Built On Sand", "You Are Young", "Conversation", and "Josephine Christopher".

VariousNight Has A Thousand Soundalikes – 60s Teen Pop Influenced By Bobby Vee ... CD
Teensville, Mid 60s. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
Bobby Vee might not be the best-remembered name from 60s rock – but back in the day, the singer had a big string of hits, and a sound that influenced plenty of others at the time – as you'll hear in this cool collection of Vee-inspired soundalike tracks from the time! Bobby's style was maybe a precursor to the Brit Invasion – a way of having the vocals sound sweet, but often wrapped around the twang of the guitar – both resonating with a sense of wideness that often make great use of echo in the production to blend the elements together. That approach is carried forth wonderfully here – by artists who are inspired by Bobby's style, then take things in their own direction – in a big set of 35 tracks that include "Dining & Dancing" by Bobby Pedrick, "I Don't Care Anymore" by Jerry Modine, "I Wanna Be There" by Vic Dana, "I'll Step Aside" by Jimmy Clanton, "Please Don't Cry" by Brad Newman, "Miss Kiss & Run" by Buddy Greco, "Playboy" by The Crickets, "You Have No Right" by Alan Vallone, "Our Love Is Here To Stay" by Don Brandon, "A Girl Needs To Love & Be Loved" by Marc Thatcher, and "Heartbreak" by Joe Melson.

✨✧ VariousLet The Good Times In – Sunshine, Soft, & Studio Pop 1966 to 1972 ... CD
Teensville (Australia), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A really deep dig into the farther reaches of Sunshine Pop at the end of the 60s – a time when the genre was still running high, with all the sweet sounds and harmony vocals you'd expect – but also taking some key turns into the world of soft rock as well! This music might be known as the "world that Brian Wilson begat" – as there's plenty of ties to the world of the Beach Boys and other Wilson productions of the mid 60s – but served up with a nice variety of styles, some slight traces of psych, and growing sophistication in the production as the years go on – all making for a completely sublime set of rare tracks we'd never have heard otherwise! As with other Teensville collections, the choice of material is superb, and there's also a heck of a lot of tracks as well – 33 titles that include "Looking For An Answer" by Collage, "Come Back Baby" by Rogue Show, "Midsummer's Night" by Steve Leeds, "Don't Give In To Him" by Finders Keepers, "My Mind's Losing Me" by Jonah P Jones, "Mr Hitmaker Man" by Sandy Kannon, "Wanting" by Peter Antell, "And Then I Think Of You" by The Sherry Sisters, "No No You Don't Know" by Bennett & Evans, and "Someday They'll Reach Out" by Tommy T's Federal Reserve.

✨✧ VariousGoodbye Boys Goodbye – Girl Pop Gems – Obscure & Unreleased 1963 to 1967 ... CD
Teensville, Mid 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A really great collection of female pop nuggets from the 60s – and one that goes way beyond familiar classics from the British and Brill Building scenes! Instead, this package really digs deep – at the level we love from the Teensville label, who we've really grown to trust for finding obscure 60s material we never would have heard otherwise! These are all artists who were mostly in the shadows of the Shirelles – mostly unknown, but also a few famous names who make some great entries in the lineup – a whopping 35 rare singles, plus a few unissued titles too. Titles include "To Be With Him" by Lynette West, "Goodbye Boys Goodbye" by Margie Mills, "Two Four Six Eight" by Peanut, "Look For The Rainbow" by Linda Rae, "Diggin You" by The Loved Ones, "He's So Good To You" by The Violetts, "Can't Let You Go" by Hilary Hokom, "Say Cheese" by Pam Dickinson, "It's Too Late Now" by Tina Robin, "The Memory Of Your Voice" by Jamie Carter, "Reminds Me Of You" by Dale Brooks, and "Mixed Up Girl" by The Lavells.

✨✧ VariousMen Of The Moment – 1960s Pop Gems Written by Roger Greenaway & Roger Cook ... CD
Teensville, Mid 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A huge assortment of 60s pop nuggets from the songwriting genius of Roger Geenaway and Roger Cook – a UK team who were the British equivalent of Brill Building duos in the US at the time! Greenaway and Cook have an impeccable ear for a catchy groove and a tight, smart sort of lyric – the kind of pure pop magic that easily flows into rock, soul, and other big styles of the period – similar to the work of Goffin & King, Bacharach & David, or Mann & Weil! As with other Teensville titles, the whole thing is overflowing with fantastic rare singles we never would have heard otherwise – not the bigger Greenaway/Cook hits of the time, but lots of more obscure numbers – a whopping 32 tracks in all, with titles that include "You Know It Too" by The Gaylords, "Oh My Word" by David & Jonathan, "What A Lovely Way To Spend Forever" by Seth martin, "Heard It All Before" by Stevie Lewis, "It's Me" by Jason Dene, "The Night Is Over" by Pat Wayne, "I'll Give You Lovin" by One & One, "Be Sure" by John Summers, "A Little Like You" by Bobby Shafto, "Sure He's A Cat" by The Cats, "What A Crazy Life" by The Slade Brothers, and "The Magic Book" by Marc Reid.
