Darin At The Copa

LP (Item 22830) Atco, 1960 — Condition: Near Mint-
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".  © 1996-2023, 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.

Atco, Early 60s. Very Good-
Ada Lee is a sweet voiced singer with a pretty strong jazz style – in a mode that's pretty similar to Ella Fitzgerald – although it's also clear that Atlantic was trying to peg her as a sophisticated R&B vocalist, in the mode of some of their other bigger female acts from the time! ...

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
RCA, Late 60s. Very Good+
A great little collection of Nina's work for RCA during the late 60s – a mixture of mellower jazzy grooves, folksy soul, and some fuller-arranged styles handled by Sammy Lowe and Horace Ott. Nina's in fine form throughout – singing with a tone that matches the mood on any number – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Capitol, Late 60s. Very Good
The Velvet Fog gets hip and swinging in this Now Sound album recorded for Capitol in the late 60's. The title cut's ok, but the real gems are the versions of "Sunshine Superman" and "Take a Letter Maria", plus the more obscure "Catch a Robber by the Toe" and "Requ ... LP, Vinyl record album

Nancy Wilson

Easy
Capitol, Late 60s. Very Good
Killer 60s work from Nancy! Despite the "easy" in the title, this record's a perfect batch of pop soul tunes – arranged by Jimmy Jones with a breezy style that works perfectly for Nancy's voice. The record features her big hit "Face it Girl, It's Over", which was ... LP, Vinyl record album

Mel Torme

Time For Us
Capitol, Late 60s. Very Good
Very groovy! This is an excellent album of swinging tunes that Mel cut for Capitol – very much in the Now Sound vein of his Right Now album for Columbia, and like that one, a mix of late 60s pop tunes and more obscure numbers, all done in a punchy "in the lounge with" mode. Titles ... LP, Vinyl record album

Tommy Dorsey & Frank Sinatra

Dorsey/Sinatra Sessions Vol 2
RCA, 1940/1941. Near Mint- 2LP

Nancy Wilson & George Shearing

Swingin's Mutual
Capitol, 1961. Very Good+
An album of mixed vocal and instrumental cuts, some with Nancy in the lead, backed by Shearing's combo, others with Shearing's group alone. The vocal tracks are quite nice jazz ones – and include "On Green Dolphin Street", "Born To Be Blue", "All Night Long", ... LP, Vinyl record album

Nancy Sinatra & Lee Hazlewood

Nancy & Lee
Reprise, Late 60s. Very Good+
One of the weirdest, wildest pop albums of the 60s – maybe the crowning achievement of both Nancy Sinatra and Lee Hazlewood – two artists who'd worked together before, but never with an intensity this great! The record is overflowing with all the great touches you'd expect from Lee ... LP, Vinyl record album

Frank Sinatra

Only The Lonely
Capitol, 1958. Very Good+
One of Frank Sinatra's last great ballad albums for Capitol – a sad and dreamy batch of tunes that kicks off with the incredible "Only The Lonely" – one of those Sinatra torch songs that's so great, so sad, nobody else has ever been able to record a better version, nor have ... LP, Vinyl record album

Joe Williams

New Kind Of Love
Roulette, 1963. Near Mint-
Joe Williams is away from Count Basie here, but he's still sounding great – and getting a slightly warmer approach overall – in keeping with the promise of the title! The arrangements aren't credited on the notes, but they've got a slightly lusher feel than Basie – a bit more ... LP, Vinyl record album
