✨✧ Dean MartinThis Time I'm Swingin! ... LP
Capitol, Late 50s. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of Dean's best records ever – a swinging batch of jazzy tunes recorded with the orchestra of Nelson Riddle! The feel here is quite different than Riddle's work with Frank Sinatra – a bit less punch in the vocals, as you'd expect from Dean's style of singing – but very strong, and a lot less flowery than some of Martin's other sides. Titles include "True Love", "Someday", "Mean To Me", "Heaven Can Wait", "Just In Time", and "Please Don't Talk About Me When I'm Gone". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Sammy Davis JrSammy Davis Jr All Star Spectacular ... LP
Reprise, Mid 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A real oddity in the Sammy Davis Jr collection from the 60s – and almost more of a comedy album than a vocal one! The album is subtitled "Sammy Davis Jr Impersonating" – and then lists a range of stars, singers, and actors from the mid 20th century – including Tony Bennett, Mario Lanza, Ray Charles, Frankie Laine, Al Hibbler, James Cagney, Bela Lugosi, Dean Martin, Jimmy Stewart, and many others – all of whom Sammy channels in voices while singing tunes on side 1! Impersonation was a big part of Davis' live show in the 60s, and this album is one of the few to highlight it – with comedic versions of "That Lucky Old Sun", "Sonny Boy", "Ballerina", "Lulu's Back In Town", and "Stranger In Paradise". Side 2 features straight vocal tunes with arrangements by George Rhodes, Neal Hefti, and Morty Stevens (who also handled side 1) – with titles that include "I Married An Angel", "Without A Song", "Deed I Do", "Falling In Love Again", and "You Can't Love Em All". LP, Vinyl record album
(Tan label stereo pressing.)

✨✧ Sammy Davis, Jr.That's All! ... LP
Reprise, 1966. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
The greatest entertainer ever? We think so – and this 2LP set offers Sammy D in the best possible way to get him: live, and in the very familiar turf of the Sands Hotel. This live album, and it's counterpart (At The Cocoanut Grove, also on Reprise) are, in our opinion, Sammy's best recordings – because they feature him ripping through a bunch of material, doing lots of great impressions and medleys, and really swinging with a tight little combo led by Michael Silva, the drummer. The groove is really jazzy – way jazzier than on some of Sammy's studio LPs from the time – and he runs through a range of material from pop tunes to standards, done in a style that's far different than you'd expect for the titles. The vocals are tight, heartfelt, but also given a professional little finesse that really makes them sparkle. Titles include "Ain't I", "Another Spring", "On A Clear Day", "As Long As She Needs Me", "Any Place I Hang My Hat Is Home", "The Lady Is A Tramp", and 2 fantastic medleys with lots of jazzy songs. Heck, Dean Martin never got a chance to cut a double live album – and Frank really ever did one – so given that Sammy got a chance to do two of them, you've gotta figure the format really worked for him! This is the real Mr. Entertainment, and you owe it to yourself to hear him as he really was. LP, Vinyl record album
(Sealed 60s pressing! Cover has a small cutout hole.)
