Hello Tiger

LP (Item 33552) MGM, 1959 — Condition: Very Good+

Sultry vocals from Sallie Blair – one of the hipper singers of her generation, and an artist with a sound that's unlike anyone else we can think of! Blair's a bit bluesy, a bit soulful, but ultimately a jazz singer at heart – and her already-cool style gets some sweet extra help on this session from Neal Hefti, who brings a great sense of punch to his arrangements – almost a Basie bounce at points, but with some Henry Mancini touches too – especially in the album's great use of electric guitar and Latin percussion. Most numbers have a slinky, sexy sort of groove – and titles include "That Old Black Magic", "Witchcraft", "Whatever Lola Wants", "Doncha Go Way Mad", "Everything I Have Is Yours", "Early Winter", and "I'm Through With Love".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Yellow label pressing. Cover has light wear, and a bit of tape in one corner – but this is a nice copy overall.)

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight 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, 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, Early 60s. Near Mint-
Quite a popular live album from Ella – recorded in Berlin at the height of the cold war years – featuring a famous recording of "Mack The Knife" that almost blew away Bobby Darin's hit with the cut! The album's nicely free of some of the stodginess of some of Ella's Songbook ... LP, Vinyl record album

Annie Ross/Buddy Bregman

Gypsy
World Pacific, 1962. Very Good
A tremendous album from Annie Ross – a new recording of songs from the musical Gypsy, done in versions that are far superior to any that you may have previously heard! Backings are by Buddy Bregman, and Annie's cool and swinging vocals really works magic with tunes like "Some ... LP, Vinyl record album
Marterry/Argo, 1956. Very Good
Very obscure work by Al Hibbler – a collection issued in the 50s, but which appears to include work from earlier years, as the style and sound varies a bit from track to track. The set likely brings together material that was issued on singles, at a time when Hibbler's star was really rising ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jeannie Cheatham & Jimmy Cheatham

Sweet Baby Blues
Concord, 1984. Very Good+
A sweetly stepping session of bluesy jazz vocals from Jeannie Cheatham – outwardly a trad-oriented record, but done here with some nice light west coast touches that really capture the best of the Concord groove of the early 80s. There's a gentle swing to the tracks that reminds us of some ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dinah Shore

Bouquet Of Blues
RCA, 1956. Near Mint-
Dinah Shore's definitely got a bouquet of blues here – thanks to some backings that echo the moody, late nite image on the cover! The set's one of Shore's most blue-hued ever – a surprisingly beautiful little record that features orchestrations from Henri Rene, Frank DeVol, and Harry ... LP, Vinyl record album

Main Man
Inner City, 1977. Near Mint-
One of our favorite albums ever from Eddie Jefferson – one of the last sessions he ever recorded as a leader, and a stone cooker through and through! The arrangements here are by Slide Hampton, who hits a really soulful groove for the set – one that moves away from some of the more ... LP, Vinyl record album

Nancy Wilson

Nancy
Capitol, Late 60s. Near Mint-
A self-titled set from Nancy Wilson – and a record that definitely lives up to everything the Nancy name meant at the end of the 60s!
