Beauty & The Beard

LP (Item 606651) RCA, 1963 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.80 38

Just to get things straight: Ann's the Beauty and Al's the Beard – and they're paired together in this surprisingly tasty set that stands as one of Ann's jazziest albums for RCA! Part of the strength is from arranger Marty Paich, who has Al's trumpet and Ann's voice working with a small group that includes Red Norvo on vibes and Al Hendrickson on guitar. Tunes are a bit laidback, especially for Ann – and titles include "Mutual Admiration Society", "Personality", "My Baby Just Cares For Me", "Little Boy", and "The Best Man". (Mono Dynagroove pressing. Cover has a spot of tape with a rip on the spine, some splitting on the bottom seam, some pen, and some promo stamps and a ripped corner on the back. Labels have a sticker and some marker.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Right Now!
Columbia, 1966. Sealed
A fantastically groovy treat! This album was once dismissed as simple throwaway pop stuff by Mel – but now it's hailed as the genius of grooviness it was designed to be! The feel here is very Austin Powers – as Mel sings to hip swinging 60s arrangements of pop tunes, and some totally ... LP, Vinyl record album

Capitol, Late 50s. Very Good+
A Capitol classic from Dakota Staton – and the record that made her a real leading lady at the label in the years before Nancy Wilson's rise!

Reprise, 1969. Very Good
A standout late 60s set from ol' blue eyes – and a record that gave him one of the last great songs of his career! The title cut's a well-known gem, but the whole thing's pretty sweet – arranged and conducted by Don Costa, and done in that maturing masculine mode Sinatra was hitting at ...
