Somewhere by P. J. Proby (Liberty LST-7406)
Tab Hunter by Tab Hunter (Warner Bros. Records  1221)
James Mason Reads  The Imp of the Perverse Shadow & Lionizing by Edgar Allen (sic) Poe (LA 30006)
Kinda Kinks by The Kinks (Reprise 6173)
The Proby was a very pleasant surprise, particularly his take on "Que Sera Sera." 

I'm a sucker for celebrity albums, so the Tab Hunter was a no-brainer. It's certainly not great, but it's fairly inoffensive. Good browsing music, I suppose. It's the kind of thing you could throw on in a bookstore on a Sunday afternoon and someone will ask you who it is and then scratch their head the moment you tell them.   

I didn't have any spoken word albums from Lively Arts a couple of weeks ago and now I have three. I like the art direction on all three albums, so I'll forgive the mangling of Poe's middle name.

I really love "Nothin' In The World Can Stop Me Worryin' 'Bout That Girl" but I bought this copy of Kinda Kinks for the back cover, which I've never seen before. 

I guess I'm lucky Ray Davies doesn't like drawing straight lines.
