Blue Martini

LP (Item 52332) AVA, Mid 60s — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album

4.50 5

An excellent record that features the sublime tenor sound of Plas Johnson – set to sad, sweeping arrangements by John Neel! There's a lot of strings in here – but Plas' deep rich tenor cuts through the whole thing majestically, with a soulful power that makes the album swoon and dip, delighting the ears at every turn. Titles include "Bury Me Blue", "Who Is Wendy", "Blue Martini", "Midnight Blues", and "What Would I Do". (Cover has a spot of tape with rip on the spine and some pen. Label has a sticker.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
