Despite the title, which implies that this is going to be another one of Eddy Arnold's many MOR pop albums, The Easy Way is actually one of the most invigorating and enjoyable of his mid-'60s LPs…

While this album is not to be confused with Donovan's debut album (which was released under two different titles, Catch the Wind and What's Bin Did and What's Bin Hid), this particular collection is devoted to material from the same period in the singer/songwriter's career, his early years recording for Pye Records when his work was most strongly influenced by Bob Dylan's days as the king of poetic protest music…

Donovan's second album found the Scottish folkie in possession of his own voice, a style of earnest, occasionally mystical musings indebted neither to Woody Guthrie nor Bob Dylan. True, Fairytale's highlights – "Sunny Goodge Street," "Jersey Thursday," and "The Summer Day Reflection Song" – use a sense of impressionism pioneered by Dylan, but Donovan flipped Dylan's weariness on its head…

We Dig Mancini! has a measure of notoriety unrelated to its musical merits because it won the Grammy for Best Performance by a Vocal Group over the Beatles' Help! in 1965, making it a target of derision for those who see it as a symbol of the industry's eagerness to embrace a square vocal group over an adventurous rock & roll act.
Claude Bolling Sextet - Jazzgang Amadeus Mozart (1965) Reissue 2007

The reissue of keyboardist Claude Bolling's recordings of the 1960s may prompt a positive reevaluation of his contributions. Bolling has been known, at least outside France, mostly for the flute-and-piano works he composed for Jean-Pierre Rampal; his recordings with Rampal hit a certain popular groove and stuck with the formula. They were undeniably appealing in a simple way, but they became fatally overexposed. Bolling's earlier recordings reveal more imagination in his treatment of the relationship between jazz and classical music. Take for example this 1965 album, recorded in Paris. It's one of the few successful jazz treatments of Mozart, who is notoriously resistant to jazz treatment. The difficulty comes as a result of Mozart's reliance on harmonic rhythm, or the speed of the rate of change of the harmonies in the music. This feature seems impossible to capture in jazz, which heavily relies on regular chord changes, but Bolling's solutions here, making use of a classic jazz sextet, are brilliantly imaginative.

Rudy Van Gelder Remaster - 2006

Many Eastern and Midwestern musicians helped sustain the West Coast jazz scene in the ’50s and ’60s, but the only one among them who made an impact in Southern California on Hammond organ was New Jersey native Richard “Groove” Holmes. This was Holmes’s first recording for Prestige, and it both confirmed his status as one of the B-3’s leading practitioners and elevated his profile with the crossover success of "Misty".

His face was more famous than his voice, but Robert Goulet recorded a string of popular albums for Columbia during the 1960s, striking the pop charts with several hits and earning a 1962 Grammy Award. Born in 1933 in Lawrence, MA, Goulet was raised in Edmonton, Alberta, where he first studied acting and singing as a teenager. He appeared on Canadian television in the early '50s, but moved to New York and by the end of the decade was fit into a prime Broadway role: Sir Lancelot, in Lerner & Loewe's Camelot (with Julie Andrews and Richard Burton). A starring role in several films proved less than successful, however. He began singing in the early '60s as well, and after an appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show, Goulet signed to Columbia in 1962.

Hank Snow had three hits in 1965, but none of them are on Sings Your Favorite Country Hits. The album was aimed at Snow's fans, who would happily consume his versions of recent hits and older favorites because they enjoyed his voice and were familiar with many, if not most, of the songs. The then-"current" hit songs (all from 1963) include "Six Days on the Road," "Mary Ann Regrets," and "From a Jack to a King," while the oldies feature Marvin Rainwater's "Gonna Find Me a Bluebird"; the ever-popular "White Silver Sands"; and Jimmy Dean's first hit, "Bumming Around."
