One of the greatest musical film soundtracks of the 50s – a great little record based around the compositions of Cole Porter, and featuring vocals by Frank Sinatra, Bing Crosby, Louis Armstrong, and Grace Kelly! The film itself is a musical remake of The Philadelpha Story – one that updates the story a bit, and sets it in Newport at the time of the jazz festival. Louis Armstrong's music is plenty great, but the vocals are even better – and the film is especially noteworthy as an on-screen meeting between Sinatra and Crosby, who come nicely head to head on the tune "Well Did You Evah". This CD version expands the whole thing even more than previously – with spoken bits by Kelly, Crosby, and Sinatra, and a few bonus tracks as well. Titles include "True Love" by Bing Crosby & Grace Kelly, "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire" by Frank Sinatra & Celeste Holm, "Well Did You Evah" by Bing Crosby & Frank Sinatra, "Mind If I Make Love To You" by Frank Sinatra & Grace Kelly, "High Society Calypso" by Louis Armstrong, "Little One" by Bing Crosby & Louis Armstrong, and "Now You Has Jazz" by Bing Crosby & Louis Armstrong.

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.

Great live set recorded by Jon Hendricks during a time when he was making his home in the artsy community of Sausalito, on the San Francisco Bay.

Make Love to Me
Liberty, 1957. Very Good-
Hard to imagine that Julie London would ever have to ask anyone to make love to her – at least not when she looks as sexy as this on the cover! The album's a key early classic for Liberty – still very fragile, personal, and up-close enough to make you think you might just be able to ... LP, Vinyl record album

MGM, 1966. Sealed
An obscure 60s spy soundtrack from Lalo Schifrin – done with a style that's a bit different than some of his other work at the time! There's still a fair bit of the trademark Schifrin elements – bits of jazz, bossa, and Latin touches on the tunes – but there's also a style here ... LP, Vinyl record album
