Me & The Blues

LP (Item 362739) RCA, 1964 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.80 38

One of Joe's excellent albums from the 60s for RCA – set to backings from Jimmy Jones and Oliver Nelson, both of whom nicely update Joe's sound for the 60s! The tunes are mostly older numbers that recall Joe's earlier years, particularly those with Basie – but the arrangements are a bit fresher, and more 60s-swinging, which makes for a nice change of pace. Titles include "Me & The Blues", "Every Night", "Rocks In My Bed", "Workin", "Soothe Me", "Early In The Morning", and "A Woman". (Black label mono pressing with deep groove. Cover has clear tape on the seams.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Mods & The Pops
RCA, 1968. Very Good
A bit of a groovy switch for this great and under-recognized singer – a set that updates his sound with some 60s swingers that include "I Can See For Miles", "Mr Dream Merchant", "Hard To Believe", "Lelainia", "Woman Woman", and "Let's Go ... LP, Vinyl record album
Mr Easy
RCA, 1959. Very Good
The last album ever recorded by LA vocalist Jesse Belvin – a stupendous session that showed where he might have headed, if not for the tragic auto accident that took his voice from us far too soon! The album has Jesse moving from the smooth R&B of earlier albums into a more sophisticated ... LP, Vinyl record album
On The Way Up
RCA, 1962. Very Good
One of the most respectable of Ann-Margret's 60s sides for RCA – an early effort that features some tunes recorded in Nashville with Chet Atkins, who gives the lady a nicely countrified bounce! Side one is the "rock side", and has Ann doing some especially nice numbers in this mode ... LP, Vinyl record album
