Terry Jacks


Would anyone have his two later albums, "Just Like That" and "Pulse"? If so, please put a link in the comments.

Dick Campbell


Apparently, where it was at for Dick Campbell was to sound exactly like '66-era Bob Dylan.

The Baja Marimba Band


A later-period Baja joint. A link for their album "Naturally" can be found in the comments, thanks to blog friend Rock Archeologia.

Zapped!


If Scott Baio is involved, you know it must be great. That goes double for former teen heartthrob and current cruise director Willie Aames.

Oak Island Treasury Department


I'm really digging this band's second album, which can be found here. If you have their first record (the cover is above), please put a link in the comments.

Haircuts and the Impossibles


Some classic exploito - it's all there in the band's name. Check the comments for a link their other record, "Here's Where It's At."

Monkey Business


By request, here's a rip-off/cash-in record that tried to rope the unsuspecting into buying a faux Monkees album. It's not so bad, but it's also not so great. Read more about it here.

Better


Is this the way to live a life
Never think about the meaning
Then one day you wake up
And the whole world is careening
Well I'm no philosopher
Not Jean Paul Sartre
But it doesn't take a genius to know
You gotta have heart, miles of heart

Love Minus One


This record is a real hodgepodge of styles, from lounge to jazz to pysch. But it's actually pretty great for a virtually unknown movie soundtrack, which you can read about over at Waxidemy (be sure to check out the comments).

Sounds of the Woodstock Age


This glorious slab of ridiculous exploito can be found over on Rock Archeologia. Many thanks, bud!

Barry Mann


It's likely that when Carole King had her tremendous success with "Tapestry" that record company execs figured they could make money off the other Brill Building songwriters. Neil Sedaka fared quite well. Not so much for the likes of Ellie Greenwich, Gerry Goffin and Barry Mann, all of whom made worthy if idiosyncratic records, of which "Lay It All Out" is one.

Cass Elliott


At this point in her career, Cass was done with the bubblegum music that Dunhill had apparently foisted on her and she no longer wanted to be called "Mama." So she went into the studio with songs from more serious-minded writers like Judee Sill and Randy Newman to produce what is likely her best record. Alas, after this she decamped to Vegas, to Carson, and to the middle of the road before her untimely death.
