Lee Wiley Album – Eight Show Tunes From Scores By George Gershwin (10 inch LP)

LP (Item 519391) Liberty Music Shop, Early 50s — Condition: Very Good

(White label pressing with deep groove. Cover has light wear and aging.)

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.

A classic set from singer Lee Wiley – and proof that she was one of the best small group jazz vocalists of her time!

Lee Wiley

West Of The Moon
RCA, 1956. Near Mint-
A great set of torchy ballads from Lee Wiley – a singer who virtually helped invent the genre on record with her classic sets for Columbia Records! This album's done a few years after those – and features backings by Ralph Burns, who brings a fair bit more sentimental moments to his ... LP, Vinyl record album

Tony Perkins

On A Rainy Afternoon
RCA, 1958. Very Good+
Poor Tony Perkins! He actually does a pretty nice job on this early album as a vocalist, and we imagine that he forever regretted having that part of his career closed down once he played the part of Norman Bates in Psycho. Still, there's a bit of a psycho feel to this album – from the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lambert, Hendricks & Ross

Hottest New Group In Jazz
Columbia, Late 50s. Very Good+
How can we even begin to describe the genius of Lambert Hendricks and Ross? The group was a jazz vocal supergroup that merged three talents that had already made a big name in the bebop vocalese field – Dave Lambert, Jon Hendricks, and the lovely Annie Ross – and the project was an ...

Lizabeth Scott

Lizabeth
Vik, 1958. Very Good+
Pretty darn amazing – and one of the campier vocal jazz albums on RCA from the late 50s! Lizabeth sings in a "guy crazy" mode that these days would really only be the province of drag acts – and it's compelling to hear a record like this, in which songs like "Men", ... LP, Vinyl record album
Verve, 1956. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
This is a 60s set that brings together the 2 volumes released separately. Among the 30 plus songs are "All Through The Night", "Anything Goes", "I Get A Kick Out Of You", "I Love Paris", "Easy To Love", "You're The Top", "Let's Do ... LP, Vinyl record album

Kenny Rankin

After The Roses
Atlantic, 1980. Very Good+
Mellow magic from Kenny Rankin – an album that follows nicely from his Kenny Rankin album of a few years before, and which has a relatively similar approach! Like that one, Don Costa's at the helm – producing as well as arranging – and most instrumentation is from a core small ... LP, Vinyl record album
Verve, Late 50s. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
A classic vocal set from Ella – filled with standards from the Rodgers & Hart songbook – including "Isn't It Romantic", "My Romance", "Spring Is Here", "Thou Swell", "Bewitched", "Blue Moon", "A Ship Without A ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dinah Shore

Bouquet Of Blues
RCA, 1956. Very Good+
Dinah Shore's definitely got a bouquet of blues here – thanks to some backings that echo the moody, late nite image on the cover! The set's one of Shore's most blue-hued ever – a surprisingly beautiful little record that features orchestrations from Henri Rene, Frank DeVol, and Harry ... LP, Vinyl record album

Harry Belafonte

Calypso
RCA, 1956. Very Good+
One of the all-time classics from Harry Belafonte – thanks to sweet arrangements from Tony Scott! Titles include the classic "Day O", plus "The Jack Ass Song", "Hosana", "Brown Skin Girl", "Man Smart", and "Jamaica Farewell". LP, Vinyl record album
