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".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Infant Eyes
Muse, 1979. Very Good-
An overlooked Hammond slammer from Charles Earland – cut at a time when he was working on more electric keyboards for other labels. The set's a killer all the way through – very much in the best early 70s Prestige Records mode – with long tracks that really jam, and a lineup that ... LP, Vinyl record album
