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

VariousMen Of The Moment – 1960s Pop Gems Written by Roger Greenaway & Roger Cook ... CD
Teensville, Mid 60s. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
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.

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 ... Temporarily 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.

✨✧ Graham BonneyThank You Baby – The Complete UK Pop Singles & More 1965 to 1970 ... CD
Columbia/Teensville, Late 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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 ... Out Of Stock
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 ... Out Of Stock
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.

✨✧ VariousReach The Top – Rare Gems From The Tony Macaulay Songbook 1965 to 1974 ... CD
Teensville, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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 ... Out Of Stock
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 ... Out Of Stock
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.

Alex Harvey & His Soul BandAlex Harvey & His Soul Band ... LP
Polydor (Germany), 1964. Near Mint- ... $14.99
Fantastic early work from Alex Harvey – later a big force in British blues and rock, but here at the head of an incredibly cool combo that's drenched in soul! The tunes are short, sharp, and plenty soulful – very much inspired by R&B work of the 50s, but served up with some of the leaner soul modes that were grabbing the London mod scene during the mid 60s – often with a strong tenor getting the chance to solo on many numbers, and these raw vocals that sound like they must have been an influence on Robert Plant. The album was recorded live, with a really raw sound – and titles include "When I Grow Too Old To Rock", "Framed", "Backwater Blues", "Going Home", "Teensville USA", "I Just Wanna Make Love To You", "The Blind Man", and "I Ain't Worrying Baby".
