Don't Go Breaking My Heart  performed by Burt Bacharach  1965
Recommended by m.ace [profile]

A super-sweet bossa-pop tune. From one of Burt's solo LPs, but actually sung by an unnamed female trio who do magical things with the hypnotically pretty melody line.

from Hit Maker! (Kapp)

Mr. Dieingly Sad  performed by The Critters  1966
Recommended by artlongjr [profile]

The Critters really came up with a gem in this 1966 top 40 hit, which seems to have a sort of Brazilian influence. I had the lyrics to this for years in a magazine before I heard the actual song. The greatest hits CD I cited is out of print, but this song may be found on various compilations as well.

Another hit the Critters had was their version of the Lovin' Spoonful's "Younger Girl", which was also
done by the Hondells...I like the Critter's version better.

available on CD - Anthology: The Complete Kapp Recordings,1965-1967 (Taragon)

  24 Jun 09 ·Major Minor: Yes, Mr. Dieingly sad is pop perfection! For any Critters fans I'd recommend checking out: "The Giant Jellybean Copout" which was basically the same band under a pseudonym.. It's a breezy, jazzy, Beach Boys meets The Free Design amazing vocal harmony track that I would give 5 stars to... recommended to any sunshine pop fan
So Tenderly  performed by St. George and Tana  1967
Recommended by artlongjr [profile]

Here's a 1960's classic from a rare album I've had for a few years...I found a link to youtube with the song:

Produced by Huey Meaux who also produced Sir Douglas Quintet.

from St. George and Tana (Kapp)

  20 Dec 09 ·konsu: This one continues to entertain me. "Big Daddy's Blues" sounds like a primordial X. I also can't seem to live without "Books of Rhythm, Books of Rhyme". Such a treat of a record.
