Larry Cunningham

A: Good Old Country Music
B: One Kiss Away From Loneliness
Country & Irish, recorded in Nashville for authenticity. Upbeat 'A' side, with fiddles sawing and banjos plunking; normal service is resumed on the 'B', where Larry is expecting the old heave-ho from his sweetheart - with this being C&I he's lucky that she's not dying of something. I've followed the convention in listing this as Irish, but I suspect it may have been pressed in Ireland for release in the UK - both tracks were on a Release Records LP in Ireland.

Andre Previn And His Trio

A1: Give My Regards To Broadway
A2: Put On A Happy Face
B1: Too Darn Hot
Piano-led small-band Jazz The first track is taken at a frantic pace; I had to check that I was plating it at the right speed. The trio gets its collective breath back on the second track before going for an extended workout on the third. Not generally my kind of thing, but the sheer musical dexterity won me over - it manages to remain pretty tuneful as well, which is a bonus where 'modern' Jazz is concerned.

Alyn Ainsworth With The Rock-A-Fellas

A1: 18th Century Rock
A2: Hell's Bells

Alyn Ainsworth And His Orchestra

B1: The Buckingham Brownies
B2: Marchambo
Scans added. Four novelty instrumentals, nicely varied. '18th Century Rock' starts off decorously with hints of a music box and the 'All Creatures Great And Small' theme before gathering its skirts up and having a bit of a hoolie; then the organ-led 'Hell's Bells' is taken at the gallop. On the other side 'Buckingham Brownies' has more than a touch of the Boys' Brigade about it, while 'Marchambo' gives the percussion section a chance to have a bash. Whoever gave the EP its title got it right - 'Happy Sounds' indeed.

Johnny Tillotson

A: Cabaret
B: If I Were A Rich Man
Scans of demo labels added - they've been repaired to cover bad tearing. New Orleans Trad Jazz style on the 'A' side, suitably exuberant. The 'B' is more in MOR territory; it makes a respectable fist of the 'Fiddler On The Roof' hit.

Showstoppers

A: Ain't Nothing But A Houseparty
B: What Can A Man Do
Scans added. The 'A' side appears to be a straight reissue of the hit - from the '1976' on the label I thought it might be a re-recording.
