Dream With Dean

LP (Item 471086) Reprise, 1964 — Condition: Very Good+

Easy to dream with Dean Martin with the record's this mellow – a great late night session that really shows Dino sparkling on a set of laidback ballads and love tunes! The style's a great reminder that Martin could be as good of a ballad singer as he was an upbeat jokester and hipster – a quality that didn't always some through as strongly in his Rat Pack years. Backing is by a cool jazz combo – with Barney Kessel on guitar, Ken Lane on piano, Red Mitchell on bass, and Irv Cottler on drums – and titles include "I'll Buy That Dream", "I'm Confessin", "Blue Moon", "I Don't Know Why", "Hands Across The Table", "Smile", and the original recording of "Everybody Loves Somebody".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Tri-color mono steamboat 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.

Reprise, 1965. Near Mint-
Dino starts to experiment with the sort of 60s hobo/tramp/loser country songs that always worked perfectly with his alcoholic style. Titles include "King Of The Road", "My Shoes Keep Walking Back To You", "Bumming Around", "Birds & The Bees", "Born ... LP, Vinyl record album
Reprise, Mid 60s. Near Mint-
A pivotal record in the career of the great Lee Hazlewood – one that presents his personal with all its wit and warmth, yet also lets Lee take on some more mature topics as well! Most of the tunes start in the same sort of storytelling style as the album Trouble Is A Lonesome Town – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Reprise, 1966. Near Mint-
A great one from Sammy Davis Jr – one of his most upbeat, bouncy albums for Reprise – and definitely done with the sort of energy that earns the set the "show" in the title! The album was released in conjunction with Sammy's TV show on NBC in the mid 60s – and it's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Nancy Sinatra

Sugar
Reprise, Late 60s. Near Mint-
Though one of her groovy Hazlewood produced albums, she only does two Hazlewood-penned tunes on this one: "Coastin", and "Sugar Town". The rest of the songs are the old-timey standards like "Sweet Georgia Brown", "Vagabond Shoes", "Let's Fall In ... LP, Vinyl record album

Nancy Sinatra

Nancy In London
Reprise, 1966. Sealed
Nancy Sinatra recording in London, but still getting some heavy help from Lee Hazlewood – who wrote about half the tracks on the record, and also guest stars on one number too! The backings are fuller than some of Nancy's other Reprise albums – clearly going for some of the jaunty ... LP, Vinyl record album

Morgana King

Wild Is Love
Reprise, 1966. Sealed
A playfully swinging little set from Morgana King – given the groovy, latenight lounge Reprise sound by producer Jimmy Bowen! This second album for Reprise is a much more extroverted than the quite strong It's A Quiet Thing LP from a year before – with arranger Torrie Zito grooving out ... LP, Vinyl record album
Atlantic, 1967. Near Mint-
One of Bobby D's albums from his confused period in the mid 60s! Sounds sort of goofy, but it actually works, thanks to some swinging arrangements by Roger Kellaway, and the pep and zip of the score. Plus, the cover's got Bobby leaning on a push me-pull me, with a doctor's bag and a big stovepipe ... LP, Vinyl record album

Billie Holiday

Billie Holiday (MGM)
MGM, 1959. Very Good
One of Billie's last sessions – recorded with beautiful large backings by Ray Ellis, and a heartbreaking tone that may not show Billie as strong technically as on some of her earlier albums, but which is pretty darn compelling nonetheless. Titles include "All The Way", "Don't ... LP, Vinyl record album

Nina Simone

Pastel Blues
Philips, 1965. Very Good-
Wonderful stuff from Nina Simone – working here still with one foot in the jazzier style of early days, but with haunting elements of the later progressive style to come! The "pastel" in the title shouldn't imply any sort of softness on Nina's part, because if anything, she's ... LP, Vinyl record album
Capitol, Late 60s. Very Good+
A classic set of tracks from Peggy – featuring the sublime hit "Is That All There Is?", produced by Lieber & Stoller, and arranged and conducted by Randy Newman. Other arrangements are by the likes of Mike Melvoin, Mundell Lowe, George Tipton, and Bobby Bryant – all of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Capitol, 1960. Very Good+
A Swingin Session indeed – as Frank steps out with Nelson Riddle on one of his last great albums for Capitol! The record's got the bounce and lilt of Frank's earlier gems with Riddle – a sly mix of jazz and strings that's every bit the best fit for Blue Eyes' vocals at the end of the ...
