Concert albums dating from the prime years of the British Invasion are rare the Beatles tried and failed at least twice to get what producer George Martin felt was needed for such a record; the Rolling Stones likewise never got their unadulterated concert sound down on tape for public consumption for more than ten minutes at a time, and most of the competition similarly never tried or didn't succeed in this endeavor, at least until a little later when the crowds had calmed down slightly.

It would seem a strange thing compiling the work of Charlie Haden's decade-long Quartet West Group onto a single disc. The reason isn't that they recorded so much material, but more because the material was themed record by record. Yet that is exactly why a compilation like this does work, because this group played music utilizing different aspects of the same theme: to evoke the spirits, ghosts and sprites of a Los Angeles that has moved off the screen of real life into the stuff of myth. That Haden and his group, which included drummer Larance Marable (who replaced Billy Higgins after the group's first, self-titled album in 1986), saxophonist Ernie Watts, and pianist Alan Broadbent could make it all sound so present and real, gives the impression that there was truth in the images. This is not only from a West Coast point of view (though there it is imbued more with the striking visual reveries to accompany the tunes) but also in the popular culture mythos in the collective American mind.

This album (reissued by C5 Records on CD) is the equivalent in Shapiro's career to what Dusty in Memphis was to Dusty Springfield's career the single most important, mature, concise, and direct statement of who she was as an artist. The sound, surprisingly, isn't really terribly country in nature. Indeed, parts of it, like "I Cried Myself to Sleep," could almost qualify as pop-soul. "It's My Party" in its original version is less whiny and mannered than the Lesley Gore version. The rest runs the gamut from vintage pop to Dixieland influences, all well sung and extremely well played. A masterpiece, and a most unexpected one, from this underrated talent.

The Four Pennies were probably the most commercially successful UK vocal/instrumental group that failed to chart in the United States, during the so-called British Invasion. The Four Pennies were founded in 1963, and initially consisted of Lionel Morton (vocals, rhythm guitar), Fritz Fryer (lead guitar), Mike Wilshaw (bass, keyboards, backing vocals), and Alan Buck (drums) The group's name was chosen as a more commercial alternative to "The Lionel Morton Four", and was decided upon after a meeting above a Blackburn music shop, the shop being situated on "Penny Street".

Unissued on CD to date, this out of print album contains the blue-eyed soul singer's Holland-Dozier-Holland stomper "Love Gone Bad" and the righteous "Do Right Baby, Do Right." Clark has more heart than voice and more soul than skill but can work it on the right material. She wails on Berry Gordy's "Day By Day or Never" (also recorded by Bobby Taylor & the Vancouvers), Frank Wilson and Marc Gordon's "Sweeter As the Days Go By," the whimsical "I Want To Go Back There Again," and Mickey Gentile and Jennie Lambert's "Born to Love You Baby."

From a label with no shortage of first-rate jazz material come this very attractive vocal sampler. Staying true to the Compact Jazz ethos, Best of the Jazz Vocalists favors quality over hits and comes with a budget price tag. The majority of songs are from the label's prime '50s and '60s run, including a cloud-bound "Summertime" by Helen Merrill and one of the all-time great versions of "If You Could See Me Now," compliments of Billy Eckstine. Continuing with this balancing act between the sexes, the collection also includes fine work by Bill Henderson, Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Armstrong, Abbey Lincoln, Jon Hendricks, Shirley Horn, and Anita O'Day; latter-day entries include Lincoln's "I've Got Thunder and It Rings" from her 1990 Verve debut and Horn's "I Got Lost in His Arms" from 1988's Close Enough for Love. Nicely wrapped up with Nina Simone's Afro-percussion clarion call "Come Ye," this Verve roundup works as the perfect primer for more adventurous trips through the label's fertile stores of essential jazz.
