Jump For Joy

LP (Item 500771) Capitol, 1958 — Condition: Very Good

A classic collaboration between Peggy Lee and Nelson Riddle – and a record that really set the tone for Lee's famous Capitol sides of the 60s! The groove here is very upbeat – as you might guess from the title – with a bouncing, almost syncopated approach that's definitely Riddle's, but which also hints at some of Lee's more soul-based backings of the 60s from Jack Marshall – those slinky-stepping groovers that would really put her back in front of American ears. Many tunes are older numbers, but they're updated nicely by Riddle's playful backings – and cuts include "Jump For Joy", "Back In Your Own Back Yard", "Old Devil Moon", "What A Little Moonlight Can Do", "Just In Time", "Music Music Music", "Four Or Five Times", and "Ain't We Got Fun".  © 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.

Peggy Lee

Sugar 'N' Spice
Capitol, 1962. Very Good-
Peggy's sweet as sugar, but working here with a heck of a lot of spice – thanks to arranger Benny Carter, who brings in a wonderfully jazzy feel to the set! The album's one of Peggy's best from her comeback years at Capitol – and a prime example of the syncopated, slinking mode of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Capitol, Mid 60s. Very Good+
One of Peggy Lee's excellent Latin-tinged sides for Capitol Records – and an album that gives her already-great style of jazz vocals a nice added bounce in the backings! Arrangements are by Joe Harnell – not the most authentic of Latin talents, but an artist who's well-suited to ... LP, Vinyl record album

Peggy Lee

Dream Street
Decca, 1956. Very Good
Incredibly haunting early work from Peggy Lee! The record is one of her moodiest, and is essential listening for anyone who's ever though of Peggy only as a schmaltzy pop singer. The arrangements are fantastic, and they have a sad somber quality that we'd compare to those on Frank Sinatra's ... LP, Vinyl record album
Capitol/Sylvania, Early 70s. Very Good+
A hip collection of tracks from Peggy Lee – recorded for Capitol during the late 60s, but issued in this special package that was a limited edition one put out by Sylvania in the early 70s. The standout cuts are Peggy's awesome versions of "Spinning Wheel" and "Sitting On The ... LP, Vinyl record album
Capitol, 1959. Very Good+
An excellent vocal set – one that finds June taking on a number of Broadway tunes, a soundtrack song or two, and other great tunes of the early-to-mid 60s with some strains of samba and other Latin inspired sounds – with her lovely vocals shining brightly or in a sultry coo, depending ... LP, Vinyl record album
Capitol, 1964. Very Good+
A very groovy set of standards and 60s pop tunes – all done by Nancy in her great soulful swinging style! The record's got far more to offer than you'd guess from the track list, as Nancy's at the height of her early career here – and she's getting backing from a very sympathetic west ...

Hartman Meets Hino
Capitol (Japan), 1972. Very Good+ Gatefold
A rare Japanese-only session from 1972 – one that features trumpeter Terumasa Hino co-leading the record with Johnny Hartman, and an album that never came out in the US! The feel here is easygoing and jazzy – not nearly as dark and brooding as some of Hartman's other ballad albums, and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dakota Staton

Dynamic!
Capitol, 1958. Very Good
The title certainly gets it right – as Dakota Staton is definitely dynamic on this one, but not in a way that's hokey or forced at all! Instead, the record nicely lifts Staton from some of the more laidback and bluesy modes of her other 50s records – into a fuller range of styles that ... LP, Vinyl record album

King Sisters

Warm & Wonderful
Capitol, Late 50s. Very Good
A nicely mellow album from this female harmony group – almost the gals answer to the sound of the Four Freshmen on Capitol! The set is laidback, with some larger backings by Alvino Ray that have a great round tone that fleshes out the sound nicely. LP, Vinyl record album
