Chris Connor Sings Lullabys For Lovers (10 inch LP)

LP (Item 466251) Bethlehem, 1954 — Condition: Very Good

One of the most compelling early albums recorded by Chris Connor for Bethlehem – a sweet little 10" session that was part of her initial "lullabies" series! The backings on the set are extremely haunting – played by the Vinnie Burke Quartet, with a lineup that includes accordion, guitar, bass, and drums – all of which makes for a more unusual sound than the usual piano trio backings that might accompany a singer like Chris! Titles include "Lush Life", "Out Of This World", "Cottage For Sale", "How Long", and "Stella By Starlight".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.

Misty
Atlantic (Japan), Late 50s. Very Good
An unusual set from the legendary vocalist Chris Connor – a record that's graced with a boozy later image of Chris on the front, but which features a host of rare gems from her late 50s years at Atlantic Records! There's some really wonderful work on the record that easily matches, if not ... LP, Vinyl record album
FM, 1963. Very Good+
One of Chris Connor's most obscure albums from the 60s – and one of her nicest too! The record's got a less polished feel than some of Connor's work for Atlantic or ABC – recorded live at the Village Gate, and divided up into "late" and "early" shows that both have ... LP, Vinyl record album

I Miss You So
Atlantic, 1956. Very Good
A beautiful title for a beautiful record – one that sums up the subtle sense of sadness that makes the work of Chris Connor so great! There's a sense of longing here that steps out from the very first tune – one that's beautifully moody, without being overindulgent or too emotive. ... LP, Vinyl record album
Bethlehem, 1954. Good+
A great set of tracks that represent some of Chris Connor's first recordings as a solo act – a classic album originally issued as a 10" LP by the Bethlehem label! Backing is by the trio of Ellis Larkins – a great pianist with a really moody style that perfectly fits Connor's ... LP, Vinyl record album
Atlantic, 1956. Very Good-
They got the "jazz date" right in the title on this one – as Chris Connor works here with some exceptional small combo backing – all in a mode that almost takes her back to the earliest sound of her first few records on Bethlehem! Ralph Sharon's the maestro here – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Chris Craft
Atlantic, 1958. Very Good-
Chris' Craft is a great one here – beautifully simple and straightforward jazz vocals, served up at a level that few other singers can match! The album's one of our favorites from Connor's classic years with Atlantic – as it's got a mellow, moody approach that's filled with the darker ... LP, Vinyl record album
Bethlehem, Early 60s. Good+
A classic set of early jazz recordings by Nina Simone – one of her first albums ever, but already with an approach that's quite different from other singers of the time! Nina's singing a fair bit of standards here, but she brings a deeply personal approach to the material – inflecting ... LP, Vinyl record album
Bethlehem, 1955. Very Good
A surprisingly great set that features Francis Faye singing jazz renditions of older folk songs – one of the first such sessions of its type (the genre would become more popular a few years later), and done with an approach that has the songs all re-tuned for a 50s modern ear by Russ Garcia, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Andy & The Bey Sisters

Now! Hear!
Prestige, 1964. Very Good
Fantastic work from Andy Bey and the Bey Sisters – a superb trio with a really soulful touch – one who had the depth of a gospel group, but the freewheeling range of the best jazz singers of their generation! Andy provides fantastic piano, and very deep vocals alongside Geraldine and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Hi-Lo's

Now Hear This
Columbia, 1957. Very Good
Excellent vocal group material from The Hi-Los – one of the best male vocal quartets ever! The foursome have an amazing talent with a jazz riff – and their style of handling a tune was only ever matched by the Four Freshmen for sheer inventiveness and vocal imagination. The album's ...

Hi-Lo's

Under Glass
Starlite, Mid 50s. Very Good
The Hi-Los fourth album for Starlite Records – a harmony vocal masterpiece of the 50s! Vocal groups had certainly existed in American pop music before the quartet first hit the scene, but thanks to incredible vocal arrangements by leader Gene Puerling, and dynamic orchestrations by Frank ...

Nellie Lutcher

Our New Nellie
Liberty, 1956. Very Good
A bit different than the early R&B work of Nellie Lutcher, but great too – a unified album of jazzy material, cut with backings by the great Russ Garcia! Titles include "It Had To Be You", "Three Little Words", "Blue Skies", "You Made Me Love You", ... LP, Vinyl record album
