✨✧ Graham BonneyThank You Baby – The Complete UK Pop Singles & More 1965 to 1970 ... CD
Columbia/Teensville, Late 60s. New Copy ... $13.99 16.99
Here's a singer you've probably never heard of – but who stands right up there with the best UK pop acts of the late 60s – both a vocalist and a songwriter, gifted with a wonderfully catchy ear for a tune! Graham Bonney's got qualities here that resonate nicely with work of the time by The Hollies or Herman's Hermits – songs that might evolve into classic rock, but which are plenty fantastic in their own right – these little mini-symphonies of pop, usually just two or three minutes in length, and really perfectly put together! This package might be the first we've ever seen to do justice to Bonney – a singer who primarily recorded for Columbia Records in the UK, but hit bigger success in Germany – although not enough to get his records played over here on radio in the 60s. The set's got an insane 32 tracks in all – more even than his issued singles of the 60s – and titles include "Super Girl", "Briony", "That Bad Day", "Later Tonight", "No One Knows", "Frenzy", "Back From Baltimore", "Papa Joe", My Jenny", "Devil's Child", "Mixing The Wine", "Leander Angeline", "Fly Me High Lorelei", "Sunny Has Gone", "When Evelyn Was Mine", "Why Can't We Be Friends", and "Did She Tell You".

✨✧ CaliforniansEarly Morning Sun – 60s Harmony Pop Produced By Irving Martin ... CD
Teensville, Late 60s. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
The Californians are liars, at least when it comes to their name – as the group hail from mid 60s England, and not the sunny west coast – but we can more than forgive them that fib, given that their music here is so downright groovy! Their name's not a complete mistake, as the group clearly love the harmony vocal sound of the Sunshine Pop generation – especially The Beach Boys – and, like British contemporaries Harmony Grass, they do a fantastic job here of transplanting the best Wilson Brothers modes over to the UK – serving up harmonies that are very much in the best mode of that famous group right around their Pet Sounds years! There's no Brian Wilson at the helm, so the production maybe isn't as revolutionary – but the songs are great, and the vocals even better – on titles that include "Out In The Sun", "What Love Can Do", "Follow Me", "Golden Apples", "Little Ship With A Red Sail", "You've Got Your Troubles", "Early Morning Sun", "Weep No More", "Sad Old Song", "The Cooks Of Cake & Kindness", and "The Sound". CD also features more great related tracks by Paul Craig, Royalty, Sight & Sound, Finders Keepers, and The Tony Jackson Group. CD

VariousGuys Go Pop Vol 3 – 1963 to 1965 (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Teensville, Mid 60s. New Copy ... $13.99 14.98
Guys go pop, and end up sounding pretty darn groovy in the process – especially since most of the tracks on this collection have a nice sort of groove! All numbers have full, rich 60s production – those bigger studio modes learned in the early years of rock music, but turned towards artists who might have been more mainstream pop, yet really get the chance to soar in this setting! There's often a slight soul current in the backings – like the cooler Four Seasons tracks of the 60s, or early work by Tony Orlando – and like both of those acts, the balance here is between sharp production and a strong sense of star power in the lead. Titles include "I Said Hello To Shirley" by Lee Brackett, "Who Needs You" by Bobby Paris, "What's The Matter With Marilyn" by Vinnie Monte, "Pride" by Brent Edwards, "A Girl Needs To Love & Be Loved" by Mark Thatcher, "Without You" by Hilton James, "There Is So Much" by Bob Moline, "Speak For Yourself John" by Chuck Rondell, "The Statue" by Tommy Sands, "One Good Turn Deserves Another" by Don Grady, "Another Lori" by The James Boys, and "Someone Else" by Russ Damon.

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.

VariousReach The Top – Rare Gems From The Tony Macaulay Songbook 1965 to 1974 ... CD
Teensville, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
Tony Macaulay may not be the biggest name in 60s pop, but he wrote a few key hits in the second half of the decade – as well as a great legacy of overlooked gems that are brought together here! The set might be one of the nicest we've ever seen from the Teensville label – as it does a great job of collecting obscure tunes by Tony, a number in recordings that feature the man himself as part the group – all brought together in a way that seems to trace a growth from Sunshine Pop to more compressed modes of the 70s! If you dig groovy sounds from the glory days of AM radio, you'll find plenty to love here – lots of jingle-jangle gems that are pretty darn unusual, but completely outta sight. Titles include "Blame It On The Pony Express" by Peter Noone, "Reach The Top" by The West Coast Delegation, "San Diego" by Carl Wayne, "My Whole World Seems To Be Tumbling Down" by Billy Fury, "Waiting For A Call From You" by Tony's Defenders, "Don't Let A Little Pride Stand In Your Way" by Don Paul, "It Looks Like The Daybreak" by The 4 Kinsmen, "Alison Please" by Chris Kelly, "I Only Have Myself To Blame" by The Images, "Sad Eyed Romany Woman" by James Darren, "Baby Make It Soon" by Michele & Jeff, and "I Can't Stop Thinking About You" by Linda Kaye.

VariousSun Shines On My Street – Sunshine, Soft, & Studio Pop 1966 to 1970 ... CD
Teensville, Late 60s. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
Pure pop magic – and a set that's bound to turn you onto a few dozen tunes you've never heard before! The set's the grooviest the Teensville label has ever given us – a package that goes way way deep into the late 60s world of Sunshine Pop – much deeper than the hits, and even some of the lesser-knowns that have been championed in recent years – to uncover a treasure trove of rare sunny nuggets, including a few that have never been issued before! There's a whopping 31 tracks on the CD – and the vocals soar, the guitars get groovy, and the music sparkles with lots of production touches that follow the best Beach Boys or Brill Building modes of the time. Titles include "Boulevard St Michelle" by Arthur Wild, "The Sun Shines On My Street" by Free For All, "Never To Leave" by Two Bits, "Make Them Stand Still" by Tony Summers, "All I Ask" by Victor & The Spoils, "Not Like Before" by Rainy Day Friends, "How Do You Tell A Girl" by The Other Four, "She Opened Up Like A Rosebud" by Horizon, "Behind These Stained Glass Windows" by The Shaggy Boys, "Protect Me" by Ritchie Adams, "And Soon The Snow Is Gonna Fall" by The Family Album, and "Sand In The Sandwiches" by The Twilights.

VariousWishyouawish – The Hollies' Compositions By Others 1965 to 1968 ... CD
Teensville, Mid 60s. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
A great little songbook compilation – and one that features material that we might never have heard at all! Back in the 60s, there were definitely key groups and singers whose tunes were covered by others – like The Beatles, Bob Dylan, and even Donovan – but The Hollies, despite some great material of their own, wouldn't be a name that we'd quickly add to that list! And yet the compilers of this very groovy set have managed to track down 30 rare singles from the time – really fresh readings of tunes from the biggest early years of the British group – sometimes done at a level that's pretty close to the originals, sometimes nicely divergent – especially when bigger Sunshine Pop elements come into the mix. Titles include "Pay You Back With Interest" by Dana Gillespie, "Charlie & Fred" by Bat McGrath & D Harvey Potter, "I've Got A Way Of My Own" by Electric Prunes, "High Classed" by Bobby Davis, "Lullaby To Tim" by Teenmakers, "Fifi The Flea" by The Sidekicks, "Go away" by The Mirage, "Peculiar Situation" by The Young Idea, "What's Wrong With The Way I Love" by The Twilights, "Too Many People" by Ronnie Burns, "Coming From The Ground" by The Lee Kings, "Put Yourself In My Place" by Episode Six, "You'll Be Mine" by The 4 Strangers, and "Wishyouawish" by Cathy Rich.

✨✧ VariousMake The Music Play – Neil Sedaka's Songwriting Gems 1963 to 1971 (with bonus track) ... CD
Teensville, 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A treasure trove of rare 60s sunshine pop written or co-written by Neil Sedaka – recorded by a sprawling roster of famous and forgotten names alike – done in styles that range from girl group, to harmony soul, to pop psych and beyond! Neil was a solo star himself as early as the late 50s, and a pivotal one, primarily recording songs he co-wrote with partner Howard Greenfield years before the singer-songwriter movement in pop, staying busy writing even when Neil's stock as a solo star hit some lower points. A lot of these tunes are relatively obscure Sedaka-Greenfield compositions that are just as groovy and joyous as the hits, maybe even more fun to listen to now, given the rareness and oddball edge of some of it. Includes songs by Frankie Valli, The Roulettes, The Tokens, Buddy England, Sally Field (then famous as TV's Flying Nun), The Barry Sisters, Cliff Richard, Pierre Lalonde and many more, one by Sedaka himself. 31 tracks in all! Includes "Sunny" by Buddy England, "My Best Friend Barbara" by Darlene Terri, "It Hurts To Sixteen" by Lana Jean, "Cold Girl" by Bobby Sherman, "What Am I Gonna Do" by Tony Orlando, "Turn On The Sunshine" by Sally Field, "I Hope He Breaks Your Heart: by The Roulettes, "Don't Look Over Your Shoulder" by Kelly St Clair, "Plastic Dreams And Tony Galloons" by Peter Doyle, "Make The Music Play by Frankie Valli, ""Jeannine" by Neil Sedaka, the bonus track Stayin' Power" by Billy J Kramer and more.
