Lena McLin Singers - Snosaes Sgniteerg - Seasons Greetings (1987)

 I've had a number of requests for this one-sided oddity, over the years. I've had it and then I've lost it in the ridiculous enormity of my collection. But now, I have it and it's digitized and I apologize to those who inquired about this recording years ago. The vinyl sounds terrific.

01 The Spirit of Christmas
02 Love is Here
03 Merry Christmas
04 When It is Chrismas

McLin was born in Atlanta, Georgia. At the age of five she was sent to live with her uncle, Thomas A. Dorsey. She attended the Pilgrim Baptist Church as a child, where she was exposed to gospel music and served as an accompaniest to her uncle's choir. McLin has a bachelors in music, specializing in piano and violin, from Spelman College, and a graduate degree in music from the American Conservatory of Music

McLin founded the McLin Ensemble in the 1950s, during which time McLin was serving as the public relations director of the Park District Opera Guild. She and the ensemble made their operatic debut in November 1960 at the Abraham Lincoln Center in Chicago, with a performance of The Cloak.[ McLin had also founded the McLin Opera Company in the mid-1950s with her husband Nathanael, which they funded with their own money. The company was named the "nation's leading small opera company" by the Washington Afro-American in 1965. Under her direction the company performed on state, as well as on radio and television networks.
McLin's own opera "Oh Freedom" was played at Carnegie Hall in 1983. She has composed a wide range of music, including cantatas, masses, and rock operas.[ Her work has built from both European Classical traditions and tradition African-American music, and "works large and small that, in essence, merged European and African-American languages" according to Reich. She also fronts the gospel group Lena McLin & the McLin Singers. In 2011 a tribute to her musical career was held at the Emmanuel Baptist Church. She was an honorary of the Human Symphony's Foundation living legends award in 2007.
In all she has composed more than 400 cantatas, masses, solo and choral arrangements of spirituals, anthems, art songs, Gospel songs, rock operas, soul and pop songs, works for piano and orchestra, and electronic music arrangements, including Free At Last: A Portrait Of Martin Luther King Jr. and Gwendolyn Brooks: A Musical Portrait

Keith Sykes -  It Don't Hurt to Flirt (1981) 

 The vinyl on this sounds like it has never been played. The music is pretty good. There are some nice tunes here. Keith obviously knows how to put a song together. The title of the album leaves a lot to be desired.

Singer/songwriter Keith Sykes first surfaced in 1969 with a self-titled LP on Vanguard, followed a year later by 1 2 3; out of the limelight throughout much of the early 1970s, he resurfaced later in the decade playing guitar in Jimmy Buffett's touring band, also issuing the solo LP The Way That I Feel in 1977. I'm Not Strange, I'm Just Like You followed in 1980, but after releasing It Don't Hurt to Flirt two years later, Sykes spent the next several years best known as a composer, authoring songs for Buffett, John Prine, the Judds, and others. Signing to Prine's Oh Boy! label in 1992, he released It's About Time, his first solo album in close to a decade; Advanced Medication for the Blues followed in 1998.

 Jim Nabors - Kiss Me Goodbye (1968)

The vinyl sounds really good. Jim's albums are all similar. Good songs and Jim's big voice. If you like this stuff - you're going to like this one.  Though, it does have one of the most whorish songs in recorded history "Honey (I Miss You).

James Thurston Nabors (born June 12, 1930) is a retired American actor and singer. Born and raised in Sylacauga, Alabama, Nabors moved to southern California because of his asthma. While working at a Santa Monica nightclub, The Horn, he was discovered by Andy Griffith and later joined The Andy Griffith Show, playing Gomer Pyle. Nabors and Ron Howard are the last surviving regular male cast members from that series. The character proved popular, and Nabors was given his own spin-off show, Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C..
Though known for his portrayal of Gomer Pyle, Nabors became a popular guest on variety shows in the 1960s and 1970s (including two specials of his own in 1969 and 1974), which showcased his rich baritone voice, and sometimes his higher-pitched voice. He subsequently recorded numerous albums and singles, most of them containing romantic ballads.
Nabors is also known for singing "Back Home Again in Indiana", prior to the start of the Indianapolis 500, held annually over the Memorial Day Weekend. Save for occasional absences due to health or other conflicts, Nabors sang the unofficial Indiana anthem almost every year from 1972 until his final time in 2014.
It was at The Horn where Nabors was discovered by Andy Griffith and was hired to play a one-shot role of Gomer Pyle, an "addlebrained" gas station attendant, on The Andy Griffith Show (Season 3, episode 13 - "The Bank Job"). Nabors's character (based on his act at The Horn) became so popular that he was made a regular on the show and was later given his own show, the spin-off Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C., in which his character joined the United States Marine Corps. The show, which placed Nabors' bungling, naive character opposite Sergeant Vince Carter (Frank Sutton), was also popular.
Despite its run during the Vietnam War, Gomer Pyle remained popular, because it avoided war-related themes and instead focused on the show's rural roots and the relationship between Pyle and Carter.[14][15][16] Nabors resigned from Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C. after five seasons—prompting producers Aaron Ruben and Sheldon Leonard to ask CBS to cancel it—because he desired to move to something else, "reach for another rung on the ladder, either up or down."
Nabors revealed his rich baritone voice first on the February 24, 1964, episode of The Andy Griffith Show and on April 8, 1964, on The Danny Kaye Show, and subsequently capitalized on it with numerous successful recordings and live performances. Most of the songs were romantic ballads, though he sang pop, gospel, and country songs as well.
The climactic vocal performance on Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C. came in an episode titled "The Show Must Go On", aired November 3, 1967, in which Pyle sang "The Impossible Dream (The Quest)" in Washington, D.C., at a U.S. Navy relief show, accompanied by the Marine Corps Band. He hosted a variety show, The Jim Nabors Hour (1969–1971), which featured hisGomer Pyle co-stars Ronnie Schell and Frank Sutton. Despite a poor critical reception, the show was popular. After the cancellation of The Jim Nabors Hour, Nabors embarked on a nationwide roadshow.

 Jennifer Hall - Fortune and Men's Eyes (1988) 

The vinyl sounds great. This kind of synthpop isn't really my cup of tea. That said, it's not bad. Jennifer has a nice voice and the songs  are better than most of this type of album. I hope she quite smoking.

In March 2012, the Theatre Royal in Bath commissioned her to paint a portrait of her father in oils. It was a surprise portrait, for which he did not sit, and about which he knew nothing until the moment he unveiled it at a gala on 25 May 2012 to celebrate the 48 productions he had directed there.
In June 2013, Hall had her first solo show at the Serena Moreton Gallery in Ladbroke Grove.

 Les Compangnons - De La Chanson (1969)

 I'm stunned the vinyl sounds this good. There were grimy bits that I had to have my wife dig out of the grooves. You'd never know. Not very clicky at all. While I wouldn't want to listen to 20 of these albums in a row, this is quite enjoyable. Well worth a listen.

Les Compagnons de la chanson were a French vocal group from Lyon, France, founded during World War II. Before 1946, they were part of a larger choir called the 'Compagnons de la musique'. The group met Edith Piaf first in 1944, and performed in German occupied Paris. 1946 they recorded a French language song, "Les trois cloches", which was written in 1945 by Jean Villard Gilles and Marc Herrand. English lyrics were later added by Bert Reisfeld, but it was first recorded by the Melody Maids in 1948.
Some of Les Compagnons de la chanson's biggest hits were "Tom Dooley", "Kalinka", "The Windmill Song" and the aforementioned and re-titled "The Three Bells". The latter track peaked at #21 in the UK Singles Chart in October 1959. It suffered from competition by the bigger selling rival version of the time, recorded by the American family trio of The Browns. Their version sold over one million copies in the US alone, and reached #6 in the UK chart.
Les Compagnons de la chanson made over 350 records and undertook around 300 concerts per year. Their final concert was in 1985.[

 The vinyl has some light clicks but they should clean up with my de-clicking software. This sounds very West Coast Rock/Pop. This has its lite pop moments. Worth a listen.
