My Vinyl Attic - Richard Chamberlain - Sings (1962)


If you’d like to listen to this album or any other album I am posting here, just send me your email address at radiovickers1@gmail.com and I will put you on my list.  


The vinyl was mostly in good shape.  The last song on each side had some "Big Note" distortion but most of that seems to have been fixed with the de-clicker.  Richard has an okay voice and does a reasonable job with these pop chestnuts.  It would have been nice if he could have upped the tempo a little more but, perhaps that wasn't his strength.

The info below is Stolen From Here
Richard Chamberlain Sings is the first album released by actor Richard Chamberlain. It would prove his most popular, spawning several hit singles. The album was an attempt to expand his career and capitalize on the great popularity of Chamberlain's television series, Dr. Kildare. "Love Me Tender" was released as a single and reached no. 21 on the Billboard Pop singles chart in 1962.

The vinyl was in excellent shape.  The sound is magnificent.  The music is not my particular cup of tea.  It's not catchy enough and goes on a bit long.  But...I'm not a funk guy.

The vinyl on this was very good.  Excellent compared to another copy of the album which was absolute shit. Still, that's what you expect from these type of teeny bopper records.  Luckily it isn't the case here.  Very good sound.  The music?  Fabian was not the most talented of singers.  It's a good nostalgia piece.

The vinyl great.  The singing?  It's okay.  This isn't as goofy as his western album and it certainly is better than the party record.

My Vinyl Attic - Percy Faith - porgy and bess (1959)


If you’d like to listen to this album or any other album I am posting here, just send me your email address at radiovickers1@gmail.com and I will put you on my list.  


The vinyl was surprisingly terrific.  I don't hear any distortion and the clicks have been removed and there weren't that many to begin with.  Enjoyable stuff.  Definitely of an era.  

Percy Faith made some excellent albums containing orchestral instrumental treatments of the music from Broadway shows in the 1950s, and here are two of them on one discount-priced CD. Both were highly ambitious projects for their composers, George Gershwin and Frank Loesser, respectively. Porgy & Bess, of course, was Gershwin's "folk opera," a commercial disappointment in 1935 that grew in stature until, when a film version was released in 1959, the record stores were swamped with recordings of it. Faith matched the ambitions of the score, employing two large orchestras and some notable soloists. Faith brought something of a swing sensibility to his arrangements, but he preserved those gorgeous Gershwin melodies and gave a feel of the passion and tragedy of the story. His recording was justly successful in the charts. 1956's The Most Happy Fella was a more contemporary work, Loesser's sung-through operetta of a musical that took three discs to contain the original cast recording. Faith picked and chose his way through the score, keeping the big songs like "Standing on the Corner," "Joey, Joey, Joey," and "Big D." He brought out the varying colors of the music well, veering from marching-band style to lush ballad arrangements, which gave a sense of the diversity of Loesser's music. Taken together, the two albums present some vibrant instrumental music, both in the familiar tunes and in the more obscure ones that get treatment just as meticulous. ~ William Ruhlmann, Rovi

The vinyl sounds great.  I have another copy on this site but this is better.  The music?  This is one of the best albums of the 80's and I'm not exaggerating.  An absolutely wonderful pop/rock album.

My Vinyl Attic - Pollution - Pollution (1971)


If you’d like to listen to this album or any other album I am posting here, just send me your email address at radiovickers1@gmail.com and I will put you on my list.  




The vinyl sounds really good.  The music is quite enjoyable. The girl sing is great.


This information stolen from This Great Site


This is Gray’s only musical endeavor as a member of a group. Pollution’s first album, also entitled "Pollution", was recorded during and after Gray’s two-and-a -half-year stint in the Los Angeles company of the musical Hair. On the album, Gray sings two songs: "This Feeling Won’t Last Long" and a Paul Williams composition, "Do You Really Have a Heart." The album’s cover won a Grammy for its creator, Gene Brownell. The second album for the label, Heir Pollution, received considerably less distinction.
    Seven members made up the group: Tata Vega (whom Gray brought into the ensemble after having worked with her in Hair); guitarist/composer/singer, James Quill Smith (Smitty); drummer, Dennis Kenmore; bassist, John Lambert; saxophonist/pianist, Christaan Mostert; pianist/trumpeter, Richard Lewis; and Gray.
    Pollution’s mentor/manager was Max Baer Jr., son of the great prizefighter and better known as Jethro of "The Beverly Hillbillies." In an earlier biographical account, Gray characterizes his experience with Baer: "When it was over, I felt like I’d survived the holocaust."

If you’d like to listen to this album or any other album I am posting here, just send me your email address at radiovickers1@gmail.com and I will put you on my list.  



The vinyl is great.  I don't think this had been played much.  Unfortunately, it's a pretty lackluster effort.  :Larry has a nice voice but he doesn't write many of these songs and it's a bit bland.  I don't know what happened to the guy behind Edward Bear but he seems to have just given up.  The self-penned Goodbye may have been a sign.

http://www.redtelephone66.com/albumart/neon.jpg

The vinyl is pretty good on this.  I don't hear any real problems with it.  It maybe just the way it was recorded.  It's a pretty good album.  I can remember buying this as a Cheapie back in the day.

Information stolen from This Great Site

Neon were Peter Brannigan (guitar-vocals), Francis Crabtree (keyboards-vocals), Russell Leslie (percussion-lead vocals) and Fung Porter (bass-lead vocals).
After releasing this album which was produced by Tommy James, the group became James’ new studio and touring band after James parted ways with the Shondells, who’s four remaining members formed a new group called Hog Heaven.
“Their prime claim to fame seems to rest with the fact their 1971 debut album was produced by Tommy James and Bob King (the pair also handled musical arrangements and contributed one song to the set). “Neon” is actually a surprisingly good heavy rock album, with Crabtree penning the majority of the material, the set offered up a nice blend of guitar rock (”Mountain Baby“ – ignore the ponderous drum solo) and more commercial moves (check out the Tommy James and the Shondells-styled harmonies on ”Hold Back My Tears”).
Personal favorites were the band’s cover of James’ “Dark Is the Night“ (always liked that 1960s sitar sound), the rocker ”Can’t Stop Myself (From Loving You)” and the mildly psychedelic “Magic Man”. Listening to the album a couple more times, the set sounds like something The Shondells might have done had the ever elected to go for a tighter, AOR audience – that’s meant as a compliment.
The quartet appears to have survived long enough to release a follow-on single “Movin’ On” b/w “Darling Before I Go” (Paramount catalog number 0121) before calling it quits in 1971”. (Bad Cat)

I have this elsewhere on the site but this is probably a better copy.  There is a tiny bit of very faint something, when I listen on the headphones.  It isn't much.  There are some terrific songs on this album.  Is it his best?  Probably not, but he has written some damn fine songs.

The vinyl is in great shape.  I don't hear any real problems.  The music is excellent.  Lighthouse, before the drugs ripped apart the band, was top notch.  It's a shame they couldn't keep it together.

The vinyl sounds very, very good.  I don't hear any distortion or obvious clicks.  The album isn't quite as good as the first effort by these Canucks but I Care Enough is a terrific song and it's a pretty good collection of 70's rock.  And, there's the violin playing, of course.

If you’d like to listen to this album or any other album I am posting here, just send me your email address at radiovickers1@gmail.com and I will put you on my list.  


The vinyl was a bit of a disappointment on this one.  That being said, it cleaned up very, very well.  There is a little distortion here and there but it is mostly on the final tracks of the sides and even then, not all the way through.  Uncle Milty talking his way through Try a Little Tenderness is priceless.  

Song My Mother Loved

If you’d like to listen to this album or any other album I am posting here, just send me your email address at radiovickers1@gmail.com and I will put you on my list.  


This vinyl was in pretty good shape.  I do not hear any distortion or other problems.  (other than Mr. Nimoy's singing, that is)  I hear he is a very nice guy but whoever convinced him to record this album, did not do him any favors.  He tries folk, pop and even country on this Lp.  It's worth a listen, but you couldn't call it exemplary.

The vinyl is in good shape.  No complaints and no distortion that I heard.  And with his booming voice, that is excellent.  The music is what you'd expect.  If you like this sort of thing then you will like it.  Otherwise, it's not going to be your cup of tea.  No real crossover appeal in the record.

If you’d like to listen to this album or any other album I am posting here, just send me your email address at radiovickers1@gmail.com and I will put you on my list.  


The vinyl was good.  It cleaned up nicely.  The music goes from not very good to completely bizarre.  As far as I'm concerned, this should be required listening.

The track list below was stole from This Great Website

SIDE 1
1. Highly Illogical
Spock's reactions to some earth-behavior.
2. The Difference Between Us
Could Spock ever feel hidden, deep, emotional love problems? Could he react as a human in a romantic situation?
3. Once I Smiled
Once Spock's emotional barriers were broken down, and for a short while he tasted a bitter-sweet romantic experience.
4. Spock Thoughts
Some excellent vulcanian advice and philosophy.
5. By Myself
As "alien" to the planet earth, Spock is not always completely at home, and feels his loneliness at times.
6. Follow Your Star
Aim high in life. Make your goal a star and follow it.
7. Amphibious Assault
A surrealistic battle of the future. Will war come to this?

SIDE 2
1. The Ballad of Bilbo Baggins
Long an admirer of the "Hobbits", Nimoy sings of the adventures of the bravest Hobbit of them all.
2. Cotton Candy
A modern, thought-image in musical setting, written by one of the camera crew of the Star Trek series.
3. Gentle On My Mind
The kind of song that Nimoy personally loves to sing.
4. Miranda
A lovely Bart Howard song in a classic-folk tradition.
5. If I Were a Carpenter
Another "modern" folk song, sung by Nimoy in an unusual rhythmic setting.
6. Love of the Common People
A song that Nimoy enjoys singing on personal appearances, since it reflects his own philosophy.

My Vinyl Attic - Roger King Mozian - Just Mozian Along


If you’d like to listen to this album or any other album I am posting here, just send me your email address at radiovickers1@gmail.com and I will put you on my list.  



This vinyl was surprisingly good.  There's no real distortion and the clicks came out marvelously.  The music is peppy and enjoyable.  A very nice Sunday Morning album. 


Music Stolen from This Great Site

Roger King Mozian was one of the great gringos of Latin music. He played with many of the biggest names, including Perez Prado, Machito, and Tito Puente, and shortly before his death in 1963, recorded his own contribution to that crucial sub-genre, Latin twist.
A lifelong New Yorker, Mozian attended NYU and began playing trumpet with jazz and Latin groups in the late 1940s. He first came to widespread attention when his tune, "Asia Minor," was a hit for Machito. It later became something of a jazz standard, in the same Near Eastern vein as "A Night in Tunisia" and "Caravan." Mozian continued to arrange and write Latin jazz instrumental numbers such as "Midnight in Spanish Harlem" throughout his career. In 1953, Mozian formed his own band, which performed for New York City and Borscht Belt audiences. Although Mozian preferred the Latin style, he was willing to play to the mainstream when necessary, as demonstrated on his Decca LP, "Just Mozian Along."
Mozian's Latin chops served him well when the craze for percussion and stereo showcase albums hit in the late 1950s. He recorded a series of albums for MGM with his "Spectacular" brass and percussion ensembles, featuring an interesting mix of Latin and Near Eastern numbers. He disappeared from the record business for a few years when this fad faded, but resurfaced in 1962 with a terrific melange of charanga and rock 'n' roll, "El Twist!," on Columbia.

The vinyl sounds pretty darned good coming through the speakers.  What I've heard on headphones is the same.  The music is a bit bland.  I can remember buying this album back in the mid-70's and not being impressed.  Not much has changed.  There are a couple of songs worth giving a listen to.

Based in Los Angeles and originally known as The Morning and The Evening (wisely shortened to The Morning), this short-lived outfit featured the talents of guitarists Barry Brown and Terry Johnson, keyboardist Jim Hobson, drummer Jim Kehn, singer/guitarist Jay Lewis and bassist Bruce Wallace.

Signed by Vault Records, the band's cleverly titled 1970 debut "Morning" was produced by Brown, Hobson and Lewis. With most of the band contributing material, the collection offered up a variety of genres including Poco-styled country-rockers ('Tell Me a Story' and 'Roll 'em Down') and slower-paced folk-rock numbers ('Early Morning' and 'Time').

Lewis had a nifty voice, the rest of the band capable of contributing some nice CSN&Y-styled harmonies ('Easy Keeper' and 'Dirt Road'). Sure, it may not have been the year's most original offering, but the set was never less than pleasant and tracks such as 'And I'm Gone' and the trippy 'Sleepy Eyes' were miles ahead of the competition. (The album was originally released with a gatefold sleeve.)

My Vinyl Attic - Lorne Greene - Lorne Greene's American West (1964)


If you’d like to listen to this album or any other album I am posting here, just send me your email address at radiovickers1@gmail.com and I will put you on my list.  





The vinyl wasn't in great shape but seemed to clean up nicely.  If you liked "Ringo" then you'll like this album because it mines that vein pretty exclusively.


Canadian-born Lorne Greene was making his living with his voice as a Canadian Broadcasting Corporation announcer long before he moved to Hollywood and rose to stardom playing Ben Cartwright on the long-running television series Bonanza. After Bonanza became a hit, RCA-Victor Records signed Greene to a record deal, and he cut a handful of albums in which he half-sang, half-spoke songs built around tales of the Old West and other adventurous locales. A track from Greene's second album, a Western narrative called "Ringo," became a surprise number one hit in 1964, and four more albums would follow before Greene closed the book on his recording career. The Australian label Omni Recordings have reissued what is generally considered to be Greene's best album, 1965's The Man, on CD, but for this edition they've gone the extra mile, doubling its running time by including highlights from three other Greene long-players. The arrangements on these recordings (by Joe Reisman, Anita Kerr, and Don Ralke) are sometimes a bit florid and Greene's performances are broadly theatrical, but his rich, resonant baritone is the perfect instrument for these tales of manly men doing manly things, and he approaches the lyrics with a brio that will communicate clearly to the last row of the theater. These tracks sound like the soundtrack to a classic Western created for your mind, and if you enjoy watching Greene act strong and authoritative on Bonanza reruns, chances are you'll like this disc a great deal. Along with 28 songs (which make this a practically definitive single-disc overview of Greene's career in music), this package includes Henry Mancini's original liner notes for The Man, transcripts of an interview with Greene in which he talks about his recording career, and notes on which song appeared on what album. Essential listening for your next visit to the Ponderosa. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

The vinyl on this album is wonderful.  The music is interesting.  The second side is a puzzler.  There are seven songs but there are only 5 track divisions.  I've listed all the songs here but I have no idea how they divide up.  The four on the first side are correct.

01 - I Stopped The Clock (4:34)
02 - System Vertigo (4:23)
03 - Ghost (4:10)
04 - The Election (Part 1) (6:02)
05 - You Look At Life (4:56)
06 - Precinct Of System (2:17)
07 - Audio Visual Attack (3:58)

The vinyl is mine.  A pleasure to listen to.  The album isn't as good as the first one but still has a lot of peppy pop to recommend it.

Something of a supergroup, Nova united Danilo Rustici and Elio D'Anna of Osanna and Uno with Corrado Rustici from Cervello and Franco Lo Previte from Circus 2000. The group formed in London in 1975, where the band received the patronage of Pete Townshend. The first album (recorded in Townshend's Eel Pie Studio) contained highly energetic, heavy jazz-rock with really loud sax and guitars. Nick Sedgwick provided English lyrics on four tracks (the remaining two were instrumental). The album can be counted among the best Italian jazz-rock albums of the seventies.
The first line-up was short-lived, but Rustici and D'Anna kept on with Renato Rosset (ex-New Trolls Atomic System), Barry Johnson and Ric Parnell (ex-Atomic Rooser and Ibis). The approach on the following three albums was more relaxed and soft but still with virtuoso performances from D'Anna and Rustici. Vimana (1976) and Wings Of Love (1977) are worthwhile albums that should please many jazz-rock fans. However, Sun City (1978) was a disappointment veering in a shallow pop-rock direction.

About albume:
sinkadotentree
This is fairly light jazz with some aggressive guitar once and a while.This truly is an all-star cast with D'Anna(sax&flute) and Rustici (guitar) from OSSANA,as well as Rosset(piano) from NEW TROLLS ATOMIC SYSTEM as the core.Interesting that both Phil Collins (percussion) and Percy Jones(bass) would guest on this Italian offering as well.These two guys would also be part of BRAND X who would release "Unorthodox Behaviour" the same year as this was released.Michael Walden from MAHAVISHNU ORCHESTRA would play the drums on this record. "Vimana" opens with acoustic guitar and drums before we get some flute melodies that come and go. An outburst of sound 1 1/2 minutes in quickly departs as a pastoral section comes in.These drastic tempo and mood changes continue.Jones and Walden are prominant 3 1/2 minutes in before a killer guitar solo from Rustici.Some smooth sax late. "Night Games" doesn't have much in the way of a melody for 2 minutes,until the sax and drums start to lead the way.The vocals before 4 minutes are pretty good.He kind of quivers at the end of his vocal lines,probably on purpose.I like the line "Killing the time before it kills you." The guitar is again fantastic after 7 minutes and check out the drumming before 9 minutes. "Poesia (To A Brother Gone)" is made up of piano,guitar and flute throughout. "Thru The Silence" opens with guitar and drums as the vocals arrive.The instrumental interlude includes some screaming sax and crazy percussion work. "Driftw3ood" takes a while to get going just like "Night Games" did.Vocals after 3 1/2 minutes as liquid keys and sax come and go.More great guitar 6 1/2 minutes in,as well as acoustic guitar that can be heard throughout. "Princess And The Frog" features some catchy guitar melodies while the drumming is so crisp and upfront.The percussion joins in as the guitar starts to show off a little.A change 2 1/2 minutes in as keys come in and guitar and drums leave.The birds are chirping 5 1/2 minutes in as the melody has stopped.Keys and synthesized flute end the song and the album. This album does have it's moments, just not enough of them.It was hard to get excited about this one after hearing it a few times.Still a good record to be sure

The album was practically mint.  Great sound.  The songs are a little meandery. I don't see a huge amount of effort put in here on the songwriting front.  A lot of light funk that doesn't really seem to go anywhere.  Still, some of Ian Dury's lyrics make it worth the listen.

The vinyl was in terrific shape.  This is an upbeat effort that I found quite enjoyable.   I think you either like Anthony Newley's singing or you don't  I quite like it.

The vinyl on this is terrific.  No problems that I can hear.  This is a relatively slow affair.  Most of the songs are ballads.  You'd think coming of a movie playing a rock star, he would have gone for some livelier tunes.

The vinyl is terrific on this one. The music is pretty good.  It has the added curiosity of having Mickey Rooney's son in the band.

    The vinyl was in really good shape.  There are a couple of minor noises on the first track of the first side.  But nothing to cry over.  My cover was a little worn but the insides were a treat.  The music is eccentric.

    Title: Joshua Fox
    Year: 1969
    Format: LP
    Label: Tetragrammaton
    Described by Bongo’s as “Sgt.Pepper Styled Pop”, this west coast group featured Mike Botts (on drums) who would eventually join Bread. The group also included Larry Hanson (guitar), Josef Lamanno (guitar-bass) and Tom Menefee (guitar).
    The comparisons to Sgt Pepper are on the mark, though this reminds me of any number of late sixties British psychedelia groups, and maybe a little bit of what Michael Lloyd was doing on the west coast at the time. (Jack Dominilla)
