Ole Ala Lee – Great Favorites Styled In Spectacular Latin Fashion

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

LP, Vinyl record album

❔

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".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Rainbow label sterep pressing.)

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.

Peggy Lee

Sugar 'N' Spice
Capitol, 1962. Very Good
Peggy's sweet as sugar, but working here with a heck of a lot of spice – thanks to arranger Benny Carter, who brings in a wonderfully jazzy feel to the set! The album's one of Peggy's best from her comeback years at Capitol – and a prime example of the syncopated, slinking mode of ... LP, Vinyl record album

June Christy

Misty Miss Christy
Capitol, Mid 50s. Very Good+
One of June's all-time classics – and perhaps her most famous album, next to the sublime Something Cool. The set, like that one, was arranged and conducted by Pete Rugolo – whose icy and modern touches are the perfect foil for June's sad and dark voice. Familiar tunes are completely ...

Capitol, Late 50s. Very Good+
A set of lovely, beautiful vocals from Jeri – with good natured, brass flavored arrangements by Billy May – excellently done, with a variety of moods from sweet and playful, to grand and romantic. Great stuff! Titles include "Don't Look At Me That Way", "Get Out Of ... 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
Capitol, 1964. Very Good
Very groovy work from Marian Montgomery – an overlooked 60s singer who had a wonderful "punch" in her voice! At the time, Marian often recorded in a mode that was a lot like that used over at Reprise Records – a Ray Charles-inspired, Jimmy Bowen-popularized blend of pop, soul ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dolores Gray

Warm Brandy
Capitol, 1957. Near Mint-
One of the few studio albums recorded by sultry singer Dolores Gray – a great late 50s set for Capitol Records, recorded with a moody, mellow tone! The backings here are by Sid Feller, who sets things up in keeping with the seductive look on the cover – a gentle approach to the music ... LP, Vinyl record album

Time To Swing
Capitol, 1959. Very Good+
It's time to swing, but with a classy sound throughout – very much the best mix of modes Dakota Staton brought to her key early years at Capitol Records! Backings are by Sid Feller, and are pretty darn jazzy throughout – more so than some of Sid's other work of the time – a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Philips, 1964. Very Good+

The tracks are longish, at a level that allows for a ... LP, Vinyl record album
