Ole Ala Lee – Great Favorites Styled In Spectacular Latin Fashion

LP (Item 434118) Capitol, Mid 60s — Condition: Very Good+

One of Peggy Lee's excellent Latin-tinged sides for Capitol Records – and an album that gives her already-great style of jazz vocals a nice added bounce in the backings! Arrangements are by Joe Harnell – not the most authentic of Latin talents, but an artist who's well-suited to fitting Peggy's pop jazz style of the 60s with some playfully rhythmic arrangements. Titles include "Come Dance With Me", "By Myself", "Fantastic", "Together Wherever We Go", "I Can't Resist You", and "Ole".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Mono rainbow label pressing. Cover has light wear, half split top seam, and small splits in the bottom seam.)

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.
