Rankin, Kenny

Vinyl Records and Rare LPs:

Rankin, Kenny - Kenny Rankin Album Kenny Rankin Album
Pop New - LP LD 1013 Little David
Sealed 1977 Original With Kenny Rankin Hype Sticker On The Shrink Wrap And Custom Inner Sleeve. Ten Outstanding Interpretations Of Standards On The Warner Brothers Imprint. “Long Before Linda Ronstadt, Natalie Cole, And Countless Other Pop, Rock, And Soul Artists Attempted To Cover Standards, Kenny Rankin Did It And With Excellent Results. Enlisting The Arranging Talents Of Don Costa (Frank Sinatra), Rankin Created A Lush, Romantic Album That Also Maintains The Mellow Vibes Of '70s Singer/Songwriter Pop. Rankin Succeeds Beautifully, Tackling Such Evergreens As "Here's That Rainy Day" And "When Sunny Gets Blue." In Addition, Without Interrupting The Mood, He Does Beautiful Readings Of More Contemporary Artists, Such As Stephen Bishop On "On And On," And Particularly The Rascals On "Groovin." His Moody And Heartfelt Rendition Of "While My Guitar Gently Weeps," His Second Recording Of The Song, Demonstrates Once More His Ability To Adopt Beatles Songs As His Own. Of All The R&B, Rock, And Pop Artists To Work With Orchestras Interpreting The Great American Songbook, Few Have Matched The Originality And Fine Results Of This Release.” Stephen J. Matteo, AMG.... more details
 
Rankin, Kenny - Mind-Dusters Mind-Dusters
Pop New - LP SR 61141 Mercury
First Sealed Copy We Have Ever Seen Of This Rare 1967 Stereo Original. “An Ideal Representation Of The Acoustic And Ethereal Side Of The Early, Winsome Singer/Songwriter Sound, This Promising Debut Only Hints At Rankin's Traditional Pop And World Music Vision. The Tin Pan Alley And Ethnic Roots Of The Music He Grew Up With In New York City Are Obscured By His Alignment With The Sounds Of Some Of The Artists He Covers On The Record, Including Bob Dylan ("Mr. Tambourine Man"), Gordon Lightfoot ("Song For A Winter's Night"), And, Most Successfully, Fred Neil ("Dolphin"). "Cotton Candy Sandman" Perfectly Captures The Gauzy, Warm Glow Of Mellow Love That Permeated The Musical Mood Of 1967. The Highlight Of The Album Is Rankin's Own Composition, The Inviting "Peaceful," Which Foreshadows His Later Work. Includes Liner Notes From None Other Than Johnny Carson ("I Did Not Know That!").” Steve Matteo, AMG.... more details

Rankin, Kenny - Like A Seed Like A Seed
Pop New - LP LD 1003 Little David
Sealed 1972 Original. “On His First Little David Release, Rankin Almost Hits Full Stride. His Reworking Of "Peaceful" Brought The Song, And Ultimately Rankin, A Wider Audience. The Album Eschews Some Of The Preciousness Of Previous Efforts And Has A More Universal Appeal. Songs Like The Title Cut And "Stringman" Spotlight Rankin's Continued Growth As A Songwriter. His Songwriting, Along With His Gorgeous Voice And Unique And Jazzy Acoustic Guitar Prowess On The Record, Made Him One Of The Staples Of FM Radio, A Trend That Would Continue Through His Next Few Albums. As Good As The Record Is, It Merely Sets The Tone For Rankin's Next Few Recordings, Which Represent Truly His Best.” Steve Matteo, All Music Guide.... more details

Rankin, Kenny - Silver Morning Silver Morning
Pop Used - LP LD 3000 Little David
Rare 1974 Original On The Warner Imprint. Shrink Wrap Intact. Glossy, Unplayed Condition. “At The Height Of The Singer/Songwriter Period, Rankin Quietly Became One Of The Key Voices Of The Genre. Silver Morning Ranks As One Of The Best And Most Representative Albums Of That Time. Once Again, Rankin Does A Fine Job Covering Gordon Lightfoot ("Pussywillows, Cat Tails"), But He Really Shines On His Reworkings Of The Beatles' Songbook. His Vocal And Guitar Arrangements On Lennon And Mccartney's "Blackbird," And Particularly On "Penny Lane," Show Him To Be One Of The Best Interpreters Of The Beatles' Music. Moreover, In Lending The Songs His Distinctive Sound, They Transcend Being Mere Cover Versions. The Title Cut And "Haven't We Met" Illustrate His Continued Ability Not Only To Play Wonderful Guitar And Sing Like An Angel, But Also To Write Great Songs. This Is Easily One Of His Best Albums.” Stephen J. Matteo, All Music Guide.... more details
 
Rankin, Kenny - Inside Inside
Pop New - LP LD 1009 Little David
First Copy We Have Ever Had In Stock Of This Sealed 1975 Original. Cut Corner. “Perhaps His Best Album, Inside Represents The Peak Of All The Different Skills Rankin Brings To His Music. Like Silver Morning, It Includes Some Singular And Inspired Renditions Of Other Artists' Music. While John Sebastian's "She's A Lady" Is An Obvious Choice And Works Well, Two Other Covers Truly Spotlight Rankin's Remarkable Ability To Interpret Other Artists. Stevie Wonder's "Creepin'" Has All The Haunting Magic And More Of Wonder's Original. The Real Winner, Though, Is Rankin's Take On "Up From The Skies," The Jimi Hendrix Song From Axis: Bold As Love. Rankin's Guitar Work And Vocal Gymnastics Showcase An Artist With Wide-Ranging Talents. His Own "Lost Up In Loving You" And His Romantic Cover Of "Sunday Kind Of Love" Show His Ease With Non-Rock Sounds. This Is A Near Perfect Album And As Good As '70s Singer/Songwriter Music Gets.” Stephen J. Mateo, AMG.... more details
