Wild Is Love

LP (Item 472546) Reprise, 1966 — Condition: 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 into a lightly swinging sound, in place of his chillier, almost noir approach on the previous LP! Morgana's vocals are tastefully grand – doing more with a hushed tone and an unrivaled vibrato than many more famous peers can do with a showier style! Titles include "Anything Goes", "Nobody Else But Me", "I Thought Of You Last Night", "You Fascinate Me So", "The Best Is Yet To Come", "Wild Is Love" and more.  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Sealed

This is what it says, that the record is still held fast in shrink-wrap. We tend to be pretty suspicious about these things, so if the shrink-wrap doesn't look original, or if the record seems to have undergone some damage over time, we'll probably take it out of the wrapper to ensure that it's in good shape — which is why we don't have more of these. In some cases the shrink-wrap may be torn in spots, but if it's not possible the record has been taken out and played, the record will still qualify as "Sealed".

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.

Later work from Morgana King – but further proof that the lady's one hell of a singer, and kept on making wonderful music long after fading from the public spotlight! The album's a relatively subtle affair, but that's the sort that always makes Morgana sparkle the most – the kind of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Boots
Reprise, 1966. Very Good+
The album that put Nancy over the top – and one with lots of stellar Lee Hazlewood writing and production, and cuts like "I Move Around", "So Long, Babe", "Flowers On The Wall", and the title cut. Nice liner notes, too – with a conversation in which Nancy ... LP, Vinyl record album

Vocalist Al Hibbler gets some of the coolest backings of his career – some great arrangements from the young Gerald Wilson, who makes the music swing in ways that Al never got back in the 50s! The tune's got a sharp, soulful sparkle that really comes from Wilson's great charts – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Rosemary Clooney

Thanks For Nothing
Reprise, 1964. Near Mint-
A surprisingly dark, smoky set of tunes from Rosemary Clooney – a rare set for Reprise, and her last new LP to appear until the late 70s! Rosemary cuts a number of well known numbers here, which is not a surprise, but the number of searingly bleak tunes here does make it a bit of a jolt ... 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

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

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
Dot, Late 60s. Near Mint-
Great stuff from Leonard Nimoy – one of his best records, largely because he's upfront about the Spock side of his persona! As is well known, Nimoy really thought of himself as more of a serious singer than just a pointy-eared alien – so other records have a lot more of him singing ... LP, Vinyl record album
Verve, 1956. Near Mint- Gatefold
A very unusual concert from Billie Holiday – one that features narration by Gilbert Millstein, telling the story of Billie's life! The format is quite unusual – almost a live documentary, with the subject of the documentary there in person herself! Millstein narrates from the start, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny Mathis

This Is Love
Mercury, 1964. Very Good+
Great arrangements really make this one sparkle – thanks to backings from Allyn Ferguson, done in that perfect mix of soft strings and shimmering brass that seems to work best for the vocals of Johnny Mathis! The album's got a feel that's full, but never in a too-lush or sleepy way – ... LP, Vinyl record album
