West Of The Moon

LP (Item 44387) RCA, 1956 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


5.00 38

A great set of torchy ballads from Lee Wiley – a singer who virtually helped invent the genre on record with her classic sets for Columbia Records! This album's done a few years after those – and features backings by Ralph Burns, who brings a fair bit more sentimental moments to his work here than you might expect from some of his other more modern outings. The proceedings have a nice touch of jazz – thanks to players who include Urbie Green on trombone, Nick Travis on trumpet, and Moe Wechsler on piano – and although Lee's vocals have a slightly aging quality, that only serves to help the fragile emotions of the best numbers in the set. Titles include "You're A Sweetheart", "This Is New", "Who Can I Turn To Now?", "My Ideal", "Limehouse Blues", "I Left My Sugar Standing In The Rain", and "Keepin' Out Of Mischief Now". (Black label mono pressing with deep groove.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Susan Barrett
RCA, 1966. Very Good
A lesser-known swinger on the RCA label from the 60s – a vocalist who hearkens back to the imprint's female sessions of the 50s, but who brings in some groovier touches as well! Backings are by Marion Evans, who helps Susan's full vocals find some nice spaces in the tunes – sometimes ... LP, Vinyl record album

Stormy Weather
RCA, 1957. Very Good
One of Lena Horne's greatest albums of the 50s – a rock-solid effort that takes its name from her famous film appearance of the 40s, but which features some wonderfully sophisticated songs in a very postwar mode!

Cat Meets Chick
Columbia, 1956. Very Good
An interesting set – kind of a parody of the Girl Meets Boy album that had been issued a year or two before on Columbia – done with vocals by Jimmy and Ada Moore, and recorded as a "story in jazz" about love, love found, and love lost. Jimmy and Ada sing both separately and ... LP, Vinyl record album
