Sinatra & Company

LP (Item 48633) Reprise, 1971 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.80 38

An excellent set – one of Sinatra's last great albums! Side one features more bossa material – with arrangements by Deodato, and a guest appearance by Jobim. The tracks have the floating easy groove of Sinatra's album with Jobim from earlier years – and there's some great numbers like "Drinking Water", "Don't Ever Go Away", "One Note Samba", and "This Happy Madness" that feature English language versions of bossa favorites. Side two is less great– with poppish tunes arranged by Don Costa, and titles that include "Leaving On A Jet Plane", "I Will Drink The Wine", "Close to You", and a very odd version of "Bein Green"!  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

It Might As Well Be Swing
Reprise, Early 60s. Very Good
One of Sinatra's greatest records ever – pure genius all the way through! Frank's backed here by the orchestra of Count Basie, with some incredible arrangements by Quincy Jones that really have a jazzy, syncopated kick to them. The move seems to be an unintentional way of covering for Frank' ... LP, Vinyl record album

Boots
Reprise, 1966. Very Good+
The album that put Nancy over the top – and one with lots of stellar Lee Hazlewood writing and production, and cuts like "I Move Around", "So Long, Babe", "Flowers On The Wall", and the title cut. Nice liner notes, too – with a conversation in which Nancy ... LP, Vinyl record album

Nancy & Lee
Reprise, Late 60s. Near Mint-
Sweet moody stuff from the period when the duo of Ms. Sinatra and Mr. Hazelwood was electric in the studio. This was back when he used to call her "Nasty" through the headphones in the vocal booth, and when the two of them put out such spooky spooky material as "Some Velvet ... LP, Vinyl record album

How Does That Grab You?
Reprise, Mid 60s. Sealed
Another classic in the Lee Hazelwood/Billy Strange mode, featuring some lusty dusky production that gets a lot better work from Nancy than she could ever do on her own! Lots of Hazelwood originals, including "How Does that Grab You, Darlin?", "My Baby Cried All Night Long", ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sugar
Reprise, Late 60s. Near Mint-
Though one of her groovy Hazlewood produced albums, she only does two Hazlewood-penned tunes on this one: "Coastin", and "Sugar Town". The rest of the songs are the old-timey standards like "Sweet Georgia Brown", "Vagabond Shoes", "Let's Fall In ... LP, Vinyl record album

Riverside, 1957. Very Good+
Inez was an obscure west coast singer – but she's got a nice soulful approach that reminds us of some of the warmer singers on the Bethlehem label from the same time. This session (perhaps her only one) features small group backing by Oscar Moore, Carl Perkins, Curtis Counce, and Bill ... LP, Vinyl record album

Crown, Mid 40s. Good+
An unusual set, without a lot of information – but one that features some great work by Billie Holiday – and some rare sides by singer Vivian Fears too! We're guessing that the Holiday material comes from around the same time as her LA sides for Score Records – and Billie's at ... LP, Vinyl record album
