Halcion Daze: Music To Soothe The ’60s Housewife


Halcion Daze: Music To Soothe The ’60s Housewife
Various Artists
Mp3 / Mediafire

A wonderful collection compiled by the excellent plagueofangels who writes about it thusly;

Just to review… This all started, innocently enough, with:

“… a DORIS DAY song should always be followed by a DEAN MARTIN song which should always be followed by a ROSEMARY CLOONEY song. LOUIS PRIMA… PATTI PAGE… BOBBY DARIN… CONNIE FRANCIS… NAT KING COLE… DINAH WASHINGTON… and so on….”

And this is where it ends. I managed to get just about everybody in (sorry, Louis Prima; “Jump, Jive an’ Wail” just missed the cut), though not necessarily in the originally intended order. This took more hours than I care to count to compile. I hope you’ll find it a worthwhile diversion from our usual fare ….

Left-click [HERE] to download the vintage ditties. (’60s-styled cocktails & Quaaludes optional.)

Dusty Springfield – Lotsa great albums!

//upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/a/ab/Dusty_Springfield_in_1966.jpg/220px-Dusty_Springfield_in_1966.jpg” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.

“ You could hear just three notes and you knew it was Dusty. ”

– Burt Bacharach

We do like much of the supreme pop and blue-eyed soul belted out back in the day by Mary Isabel Catherine Bernadette O’Brien!!

Yap, that’s a mouthful! Sounds like the roll call at a Catholic Convent in Cork! Could you possibly get a more Irish name?

Rather unsurprisingly, this great singer dropped those 32 names and replaced the lot with the simpler and more secular handle Dusty Springfield!


A blog we really like, napusisemajmune, recently posted a slew of nice Dusty albums, including some rare stuff! Thanks very much man and keep up the great work!!

Some amazing pop and soul music here from the blue-eyed soul Diva herself, always perfectly performed!

Check these LPs out and check napusisemajmune !

Dusty Springfield – A Brand New Me [1970]

Sticking with the soul stylings of her stellar Dusty in Memphis recording, Springfield takes her sensual huskiness north to the City of Brotherly Love for this 1970 slice of Philly soul.

Doing incredible justice to a batch of top-quality Gamble & Huff songs, Springfield trades in the Stax-inspired swamp grit of her Memphis album for the urban soul kaleidoscope of A Brand New Me. Surrounded by angelically funky string and horn charts from guitarist Roland Chambers and Thom Bell (along with Gamble & Huff, Bell can be counted as an architect of Philly International sound), Springfield sounds positively liberated ranging through the gospel pop closer “Let’s Talk It Over,” an Aretha-inspired “Silly, Silly Fool,” and the Bacharach-styled ballad “Joe.”

These get topped off by the upbeat Jackson 5 knockoff “Bad Case of the Blues” and covers of two of Jerry Butler’s best Mercury hits, “Lost” and “A Brand New Me.” Along with Dusty in Memphis and her early You Don’t Have to Say You Love Me record, Brand New Me figures into Springfield’s handful of really top-notch albums.

Tracklisting

01.Lost
02.Bad Case of the Blues
03.Never Love Again
04.Let Me in Your Way
05.Let’s Get Together Soon
06.Brand New Me
07.Joe
08.Silly, Silly Fool
09.The Star of My Show
10.Let’s Talk It Over

Dusty Springfield – Live at the Royal Albert Hall [2005]

Release Date: Oct 18, 2005 / Recording Date: 1979

What a strange and lovely thing this is. Live at the Royal Albert Hall is one of those shows — the one you can’t believe was ever captured on tape. Here is the late Dusty Springfield fronting a very loose and seemingly un-together band at a Royal Albert Hall concert in 1979. Springfield is well known for her self-doubt and lack of confidence, but that’s absent here. In fact, she carries this show by the sheer force of her goodwill and charm.

The band drops out in several places and Springfield gets them back on track. There are some problems: Springfield’s between-song banter is too low and can’t be heard very well here; the backing vocalists fall behind her quite often, and the band literally falls apart for a few moments here and there, especially in the medley of hits that include “Going Back,” “I Only Want to Be with You,” “Stay Awhile,” “Just a Little Loving (Early in the Morning),” “Some of your Lovin'”; “The Look of Love” (where they really blow it and Springfield just giggles); “Wishin’ & Hopin’,” “I Just Don’t Know What to Do with Myself,” and “Losin’ You..” Yet, Springfield is in utterly top-form here, digging deeply into the heart of every tune, given the striated arrangements (this was the wane of the disco era), even in “We Are Family,” which is a medley with another pair of disco classics.

There is vulnerability here — being that Springfield is at the mercy of a band that is so loose it has holes in it, and she was performing in front of Princess Margaret — and she uses that vulnerability to give back to an adoring audience. It’s hypnotic and moving. There is an accompanying DVD sold separately that offers the visuals for the gig. But the CD contains three bonus tracks not included on the DVD release.

The version of “Baby Blue” here is totally funky and raw — it’s a-hundred-miles-an-hour — not as a way of getting through the material, but because it’s fueled by pure adrenaline. While this set would not be a proper introduction, it’s absolutely essential for fans.

Tracklisting

1 I Close My Eyes and Count to Ten
2 We Are Family Medley: You Can Do It/On Your Knees
3 Lose Again
4 All I See Is You
5 This Will Be
6 Hits Medley: Going Back/I Only Want to Be with You/Stay …
7 Son of a Preacher Man
8 You Don’t Have to Say You Love Me
9 Quiet Please (There’s a Lady on the Stage)
10 Put Your Hands Together
11 Hollywood Movie Girls
12 Baby Blue
13 Brand New Me
