✨✧ Tom WaitsClosing Time ... CD
Asylum, 1973. Used ... Out Of Stock
The debut of Tom Waits – a prettier, less gravelly-voiced and less knowingly seedy effort as the albums to come – and a set that's as tender as any that Waits would ever record! This is Waits in after hours yearning mode, still upright on a barstool or a piano bench, not yet having fallen in a gutter. It's one of his best records. Includes "Ol' 55", "I Hope That I Don't Fall In Love With You", "Midnight Lullaby", the beautiful "Martha" – which still one of his best written songs), plus "Rosie", "Lonely", "Ice Cream Man", "Closing Time", "Grapefruit Moon", and "Little Trip To Heaven".

✨✧ Tom WaitsNighthawks At The Diner ... CD
Elektra, 1975. Used ... Out Of Stock
The great early double album from Tom Waits! This is peak Asylum era Waits, getting into that charismatic, drunken bluesy poet mode – essentially working live in the studio with a small audience , giving it a genuine sounding latenight cabaret vibe, and embracing his wit and style as brilliantly as he'd done to this point. Brilliant vintage Waits and a loose, yet nicely rhythmic backing combo. Titles include "Better Off Without A Wife", "Emotional Weather Report", "On A Foggy Night", "Eggs & Sausage", "Spare Parts", "Big Joe & Phantom 309", and "Putnam County". CD

Richie Cole with Eddie JeffersonHollywood Madness ... LP
Muse, 1980. Near Mint- ... $4.99
A great example of the Muse Records charm of altoist Richie Cole – bop-fired creativity at its peak, mixed with some added contemporary elements to keep things fresh! In this case, Richie's horn takes on some key bop classics, but also opens up a bit with vocalsits too – Eddie Jefferson on versions of "Hi Fly", "Relaxin At Camarillo", and "Waiting For Waits" – the latter of which also features Tom Waits as well! The Manhattan Transfer make some subtle guest appearances too – but in ways that are much more restrained than their own albums, really leaving most room for Richie's horn. Bruce Forman plays guitar and Dick Hindman piano – and titles include "Hi Fly", "Relaxin At Camarillo", "Hooray For Hollywood", "I Love Lucy", "Malibu Breeze", "Waiting For Waits", and "Tokyo Rose Sings The Hollywood Blues".

Rickie Lee JonesRickie Lee Jones (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Warner (Japan), 1979. Used ... $29.99
Sure, Rickie Lee Jones went onto become a bit of a cliche in later years, but this early album's still got an undeniable power – and was a great breath of fresh air, at a time when it seemed like most of modern music was forgetting its roots! What is it with the LA scene from the 60s onward that they always seemed to find their best inspiration in the past? Artists like Harpers Bizarre, Randy Newman, Tom Waits and others set the stage for a record like this – by reaching back into older styles and bringing them forward with a more contemporary spin. (And why was it that LA seemed to be the center of this mode – and New York, Chicago, and other cities never worked that way?) Rickie serves up a nice assortment of older-styled vocal cuts – performed with a mixture of traditional and 70s jazz backings, supported by some extra-classy Warner production from Lenny Waronker. Titles are all originals, but done with an older hipser sort of feel – and titles include "Easy Money", "Chuck E's In Love", "Young Blood", "The Last Chance Texaco", "Danny's All Star Joint", "Weasel & The White Boys Cool", "Company", "Coolsville", and "On Saturday Afternoons In 1963".

Marvin Pontiac (John Lurie)Asylum Tapes (2020 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Northern Spy, 1999. New Copy ... $18.99
The "Asylum" here isn't a reference to Asylum Records – that powerhouse of singer/songwriter material – but a fictional allusion to the mental institution in which this music was supposedly created – yet another slice of the mysterious puzzle of Marvin Pontiac, the alter ego of actor/musician/singer John Lurie! Leaving that joke aside, and forgetting all the fake mystery that Lurie puts around the project – the music is actually pretty good, and has the wonderful vocal style of Lurie in character turned to spare, moody songs – almost as if Lurie's hitting Tom Waits territory, and we mean that in a very good way.

✨✧ John HiattHangin Around The Observatory/Overcoats ... CD
Epic/BGO (UK), 1974. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Two Epic albums from John Hiatt – back to back on a single CD! First up is Hangin Around The Observatory – an early gem from the great John Hiatt – a singer/songwriter who seems to spring into the world with a sound and style that's already fully formed! Hiatt recorded the album at Columbia's Nashville studios – which might emphasize some of the country currents in his music – but as always with his albums, there's a special, specific sort of vibe going on – smart songwriting, and an approach that's post-folk, with vocals that sometimes have a Randy Newman or Tom Waits sort of bite – a quality that maybe kept John far from the charts, but high in the hearts of critics and fans over the 70s. Titles include "Maybe Baby Say You Do", "Whistles In My Ears", "Full Moon", "Ocean", "Little Blue Song For You", and "Hangin Around The Observatory". On Overcoats, John Hiatt really finds his own groove – a special singer/songwriter mode that would make him one of the most distinct talents of his time – and part of a unique 70s lineage of new male singers, which might include Tom Waits and John Prine! As with both of those artists, there's a lot of older roots in Hiatt's music – but taken apart, and reworked towards newer modes – with especially smart songwriting that kind of sneaks up on you, especially when delivered with the raspy charms of John's vocals. Titles include "One More Time", "I'm Tired Of Your Stuff", "I Want Your Love Inside Of Me", "The Lady Of The Night", "Motorboat To Heaven", and "Smiling In The Rain". CD

✨✧ VariousStay Awake – Various Interpretations Of Music From Vintage Disney Films ... CD
A&M, 1988. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of the most novel, and dare we say coolest alternative soundtrack compilations of the late 80s! Stay Awake features a wildly diverse roster of artists covering, reinterpreting and paying tribute to songs from older Disney films – including Tom Waits, Sun Ra & His Arkestra, Natalie Merchant & Michael Stipe, Aaron Neville, Bill Frisell, NRBQ, Betty Carter, Garth Hudson of The Band, The Replacements & many more – and goes a lot farther than just inviting disparate musical figures to do versions of classic songs. The material is arranged into suites and medleys that have a strangely effective flow regardless of how jaw-droppingly diverse the voices and players might be from one movement to the next. This one should be considered a late feather in the cap for creativity at A&M Records! Includes "Pink Elephants On Parade" by Sun Ra, When You Wish Upon A Star" by Ringo Starr & Herb Alpert (co-produced by Van Dyke Parks), "Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah" by Harry Nilsson, "Hey Ho (The Dwarfs Marching Song)" by Tom Waits, "I Wan'Na Be Like You (The Monkey Song)" by Los Lobos, "Stay Awake" by Suzanne Vega, "Cruella De Ville" by The Replacements and lots more.

✨✧ Ralph AlessiQuiver ... CD
ECM (Germany), 2016. Used ... Just Sold Out!
No quiver here, as the sound of Ralph Alessi's trumpet is tight and true – blown out beautifully in a quartet setting that's awash in color and tone! Alessi has a way of playing openly, with a nice sense of flow – but in a way that avoids some of the more atmospheric trumpet modes of other players on ECM – given his sense of phrasing, which can be subtle, but extremely powerful – even in mellower moments – in this way that has Ralph stating his "voice" through his instrument, but without overstating himself at all. The rest of the group features Gary Versace on piano, Drew Gress on bass, and Nasheet Waits on drums – players who can sometimes hang back and join together in this lower range of sound that furthers Alessi's carefully-chosen moments of personality. Titles include "Here Tomorrow", "Smooth Descent", "Heist", "Quiver", "Shush", and "Gone Today Here Tomorrow". CD

Jean CarneDon't Let It Go To Your Head – The Jean Carne Anthology ... CD (UK), Late 70s/1980s. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99
A fantastic tribute to the great Jean Carne – a singer who started out in jazz, working with then-husband Doug Carn on spiritual sessions and drummer Norman Connors on his soulful sides of the 70s – then shifted over to the Philadelphia International label, where she really helped Philly soul find new direction moving into the 80s! Jean always brings all the sophistication of her roots into her music – making her way more than just another soul singer, and instead a vocalist with a great range of expression that has her opening up in just the right way, no matter what the setting. This excellent collection is filled with classics from her years on Philadelphia International, and also includes some rare 12" mixes and duets with other artists too. Titles include "Free Love", "No Laughing Matter", "Don't Let It Go To Your Head", "You Can't Come Back Now", "There's A Shortage Of Good Men", "Time Waits For No One", "Lonely Girl In A Cold Cold World", "Bet Your Lucky Star", We Got Some Catchin Up To Do", "When I Find You Love", "Was That All It Was (12" mix)", "What's On Your Mind (12" mix)", "Revelation/Infant Eyes", "Mystic Stranger", "Completeness", and "If You Don't Know Me By Now" – plus "I'm Back For More" with Al Johnson, "Sweet & Wonderful" with Glenn Jones, "You Might Be Surprised" with Roy Ayers, "Love Is Beautiful" and "Dreams Of Tomorrow" with Dexter Wansel, "Keep In Touch" and "The Look Of Love" with Grover Washington, and "Dindi", "Love's In Your Corner", and "Valentine Love" with Norman Connors.
