End Of The World

LP (Item 477609) Liberty, 1963 — Condition: Very Good
$6.99 ...

LP, Vinyl record album

(€5.92 || £5.30 || ¥788) (approx.)

A great set by Julie London, from her maturing years when she was working with arranger Ernie Freeman! The End Of The World follows nicely from Julie's interpretation of the big pop hit of the same name – in territory that's sad and dreamy, but in a different way than her earlier albums on Liberty. There's a nicely boozy quality here to some of the tunes – a more mature mode that's emphasized by Ernie Freeman's backings – which are full, but gentle, and prop up Julie's singing in just the right places. Titles include "The Days Of Wine & Roses", "Our Day Will Come", "Call Me", "I Remember You", "My Coloring Book", "The End Of The World", "Chances Are", and "Desafinado".

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.

Liberty, 1959. Very Good-
Old songs, but swung the Julie London way – and given a really cool feel here, thanks to jazzy backings from the great Jimmy Rowles! The group's clearly got some key west coast hornmen in the lineup – as some points feature some standout sax or trumpet bits that really help flavor the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Calendar Girl
Liberty, 1956. Near Mint- Gatefold
One of Julie London's wildest albums – and one of her sexiest too! The record has Julie running through the calender – singing a song a month, dedicated to January, February, March, and so on – a really great concept for a record like this, in ways that set the album apart from ...

Around Midnight
Liberty, 1960. Very Good
Around Midnight's just about the best time to listen to Julie London – especially given her sultry late nite style of singing! This album's one that definitely follows in that mode – setting Julie's vocals to backings by Dick Reynolds – a bit fuller than some of her earliest ... LP, Vinyl record album

Julie Is Her Name
Liberty, Late 50s. Good+
A landmark album in 50s vocal jazz – spare, moody, and evocative tunes from Julie London – sung in a stripped-down setting that few other singers would dare at the time! The sound of the set is as sexy as the cover – intimate, personal, and breathily sung in a mode that comes ... LP, Vinyl record album

Brother Where Are You
Atlantic, 1973. Sealed
Sweet 70s funk from the great Oscar Brown – quite a change from his jazz-based work of the 60s, but a great new sitting for all of his wonderful wit and warmth! Brown's still a hell of a songwriter, and one with a very socially-conscious eye – sharper here than before, with lots of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Swingin Singin!
Philips, 1962. Very Good+
Great early stuff by this swingin' French vocal group! These guys swung as hard as American groups, like Lambert, Hendricks, and Ross – but they stuck to hipper, jazzier material, and had a driving sound that never let up! The group is led by singer Mimi Perrin, who also handed the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Beverly Kelly Sings
Audio Fidelity, 1957. Very Good
An early date from vocalist Bev Kelly – working here with a backing from a piano trio led by Pat Moran, with support on bass by a young Scott LaFaro! Kelly's vocals are intimate and warm – with qualities that remind us a bit of Chris Connor on Bethlehem, but without as much of a sense ... LP, Vinyl record album
