LP, Vinyl record album

✈
❔
Bobby proves himself to be the consummate entertainer in this great live set recorded in the early 60s! This was the only live album Bobby ever cut during these days, and it's an excellent document of the kind of rolling kitschy style he used in a show – a style that was later copped to a "t" by his protege Wayne Newton. The tracks are a mix of all of Bobby's styles, and titles include "Some Of These Days", "Mack The Knife", "Love For Sale", "I Got A Woman", "That's All", and "Alright, Ok, You Win".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Later Bainbridge pressing, in a white border cover.)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor surface noise when played.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Betty Carter

Round Midnight (Atco)
Atco, Early 60s. Very Good
An interesting early album from Betty Carter – less jazz than some of her later work, but with a bit more of an edge than some of her ABC recordings. The album's got sort of an arranged sophisticated jazz style – in the mode of 60s work by Esther Phillips or Dinah Washington – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Julie Driscoll, Brian Auger, & The Trinity

Open (aka Jools)
Atco, 1968. Very Good Gatefold
Great stuff – one of the amazing early albums from the team of Julie Driscoll and Brian Auger – kind of a next-generation to the Brit beat group sound of the mid 60s – one that moves beyond simple R&B modes, to bring in more sophisticated soul and jazz touches! Driscoll's ... LP, Vinyl record album
Verve, Late 50s. Near Mint-
An excellent album of vocals by the great Joe Williams! Joe's always been a fine singer, but with Basie, he really gets the backing he needs to do his work the best. And although this album isn't as authenico as it might be, it still comes from a time when Verve really knew how to handle singers ... LP, Vinyl record album

Carmen McRae

Bittersweet
Focus, Mid 60s. Near Mint-
Here's a rare one from Carmen – a beautifully understated session recorded for the tiny Focus label, done with spare and soulful backings from Norman Simmons, who leads the album's small combo on the backing. Tracks are nice and mellow – very different than some of the later work ... LP, Vinyl record album
Candid/Pure Pleasure (UK), 1997. Sealed 2LP Gatefold
One of the first albums ever recorded by UK jazz singer Stacey Kent – the start of a great run of albums that would bring the vocalist great fame in the decade to come! The style here is nice and laidback – that strong commitment to reviving jazz vocal modes that made Kent such a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sarah Vaughan

Crazy & Mixed Up
Pablo, 1982. Very Good+
Nothing crazy and mixed up here, but a wonderful later date from Sarah Vaughan – one that's recorded with subtly sophisticated brilliance! The setting is easygoing and relaxed – far more so than most of Vaughan's records from many years past – and backing is provided by Roland ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ella Fitzgerald

Ella At The Opera House
Verve, 1957. Near Mint-
Ella gets nice backing on most tracks by a small combo that features Oscar Peterson on piano and Herb Ellis on guitar – and a larger group on a few more, with Stan Getz, Coleman Hawkins, and Lester Young on tenors! Titles include "Stompin At The Savoy", "Goody Goody", ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lambert, Hendricks & Ross

Sing A Song Of Basie (Impulse pressing)
Impulse, Late 50s. Very Good
One of the first albums ever by this legendary jazz vocal group! LHR do the incredible – and create a set of vocal renditions of standards by the Basie band, putting jazzy lyrics in to replace the instrumental solos, but keeping the same vibe as the original tracks. The sound and approach ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bobby McFerrin

Spontaneous Inventions
Blue Note, 1986. Near Mint-
McFerrin's vocal pyrotechnics on a host of tunes that include "Bwee-Dop", "Walkin", "Blackbird", "Manana Iguana", "I Got The Feelin", "Opportunity", "Drive", and "Cara Mia". Guests are Herbie Hancock, Robin Williams, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Starlite, 1956. Very Good+
The first-ever album from the legendary Hi-Lo's – a landmark indie debut that went onto transform the sound of vocal harmony in the 20th century! The record's got a subtle brilliance that's hard to catch at first – a way of putting together the tunes that's often only slightly ... LP, Vinyl record album
Prestige, Early 50s. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
An important set that documents a nice patch of King's early vocalese jazz sides – pivotal vocal jazz recordings that were not only enormously popular with listeners around the country, but which also did a heck of a lot in the way of advancing the way that male singers handled lead vocals on ... LP, Vinyl record album

Herb Jeffries

Say It Isn't So
Bethlehem, 1957. Very Good+
One of the best-ever recordings by Herb Jeffries – a smooth-toned jazz singer from the 50s, with a style that's very much in the mode of contemporaries like Al Hibbler or Billy Eckstine, with a nice cheesecake cover too! The backings are what make this set great – as Russ Garcia has ... LP, Vinyl record album
