Collectables combined a pair of Oscar Brown, Jr. LPs from the early '60s, 1963's Tells It Like It Is! and In a New Mood... from one year earlier. The first is a small-group date, recorded in Chicago, featuring a couple of Brown's originals, plus new lyrics for Miles Davis' "All Blues" and Clark Terry's "So Help Me." The second includes 12 standards, with a larger group (conducted and with arrangements by Ralph Burns). Brown balances a few saloon songs ("Mood Indigo," "God Bless the Child," "One for My Baby [And One More for the Road]") with folk songs like "Sixteen Tons" and his original 1960 showpiece "Work Song." ~ John Bush
