✨✧ Frank D'RoneAfter The Ball ... LP
Mercury, 1960. Very Good ... Out Of Stock
One of the few albums ever cut by singer Frank D'Rone – an excellent vocalist in the Pal Joey mode! Frank hailed from Chicago, and was a second (or third) tier singer – a bargain basement Sinatra, with a rougher style that actually has a great edge, and which recalls the tougher days ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Mercury, 1958. Used ... $3.99
A beautiful pairing of the vocals of Billy Eckstine and the arranging talents of Pete Rugolo – a real standout set that's easily one of Eckstine's greatest albums ever!

Johnny MathisThis Is Love ... LP
Mercury, 1964. Very Good+ ... $1.99
Great arrangements really make this one sparkle – thanks to backings from Allyn Ferguson, done in that perfect mix of soft strings and shimmering brass that seems to work best for the vocals of Johnny Mathis! The album's got a feel that's full, but never in a too-lush or sleepy way – ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Mercury, 1976/1977. Near Mint- ... $5.99
A wonderfully moody album from singer Helen Merrill – recorded with backing by pianist John Lewis, in an overall feel that's got some of the styles that Lewis forged with the Modern Jazz Quartet! The tunes are familiar ones, mostly, but arranged in a style that's got wonderfully sad and ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Mercury, 1962. Near Mint- ... $19.99
A sexy little set from singer Meg Myles – recorded live before a very adult nightclub crowd – with a great set of tunes to match!

Ruth OlayEasy Living ... CD
Mercury/Universal (Japan), 1956. Used ... $24.99
Ruth Olay's billed on the cover as a "singing discovery of the Jack Paar Show" – and she's got a vocal approach that must have been dynamite on TV! At times, her tones are quite low – almost the dusky style of Dinah Shore – but she's also got a pretty dynamic quality ... read more CD

Mercury, 1957. Very Good ... $3.99
A travel-themed set from Patti Page – and a pretty darn great one at that! Patti nicely shakes off some of cliches here – working with full, jazzy backings, and often hitting sounds that are a bit more mature than on her familiar pop numbers – modes that nicely match the global ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Patti PageWaltz Queen ... LP
Mercury, 1957. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
Patti Page is working here to class up her image from the country waltz sound of her biggest hit – and is going instead for a waltzing mode that's more traditional, and which brings out the duskier side of her vocal talents! Don't get us wrong, there's not a lot of Strauss in the mix – ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Mercury, 1970. Very Good ... $9.99
Beautiful beautiful early work by Kenny Rankin – a unique blend of styles that has him working at a level that he barely matched again!

Mercury, Early 60s. Sealed ... Out Of Stock
Plenty of magic here – a record with a different sound than some of Sarah Vaughan's earlier work – but one that's still pretty great!
