  • I'm looking to buy..

    something 60's, melancholy reverby record not too dissimilar to the Dino Valente album. Any suggestions gratefully recieved.

    Mickey Newbury - Sounds Like Rain
    Tim Hardin - Suite For Susan Moore

        Did you get the Jim Sullivan reissue on LITA? Great record. Seems infused with melancholy, especially given the story of his subsequent disappearance.

          Don't know if these fit the bill for you but I like the melancholy of both:





          I'm sure Jakartajive or Sie Fly could provide a long list of suitable LP's.

            Part of me thinks this is a futile search as that Dino Valente LP really is in a class - and world - of its own.
            The other part of thinks that, off the top of my head, these might come close to scratching that itch:











            Some great recommendations so far, btw.
            And I'm sure more will pop up in my thoughts over the coming days.

              The Beau Brummells - triangle may fit the bill.

                  ... and this is why I love this site. As much as I agree with jakartajive about the DV album being in a class of it's own, there are some great choices here. It's a shame some of the producers weren't as generous with the reverb as Valente. Much appreciated, feel free to keep adding.

                    I don;t understand the recommendations that have been posted to date. You asked for "melancholy reverby" music and after I heard about 80% of the recommendations here, above, I can say that I never heard any reverb on any of them. Some sounded underground-ish but most were straight sounding, so it seems to me they did not fit the bill of what was asked. Maybe I am focusing on the wrong thing and the operative word was not "reverby", as I see it. Actually, there is only one lp that I know of that TRULEY fits the bill and is the most underground, acid folk with effects thrown in and that is the Mark Fry lp Deaming with Alice. I think it is a f**kin MONSTER and I recommend you buy it. It is in a league of its own, IMO.

                      Well, you probably have missed both Jim Sullivan & Chris Lucey then. Speaking of the latter, as far as I'm concerned, his subsequent album released under his real name (Jameson) would fit the bill as well.

                      Edit: And oh, if Mickey Newbury isn't reveby and melancholic (and brilliant) i don't know what is.

                        Did you start the thread?
                        No.
                        Did the bloke who did seem happy to have received some suggestions?
                        Yes.

                        Thank you for your input and contribution.

                          OK, upon a closer listen, there is a slight instrumental reverby effect on those two but I was thinking the question referred to very obvious reverb and on the vocals too, that;s why I probably missed it.
                          I didn;t include Newbury cos I didn;t see the video on here and can;t find it on Youtube.

                            What has the matter of me starting the thread or not, got to do with anything? I was simply suggesting. Why bring it up?
                            If he seemed happy, then should that preclude me from suggesting others to make him more "happy", as you put it? Why the veiled sarcasm/passive aggression? Not nice at all.
