Live In Tokyo '63

CD (Item 573698) Kayo, 1963 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock


A rare Japanese-only live date from Anita O'Day – material recorded for television with a groove that's quite similar to some of her best late work for Verve! Most of the tracks here are arranged by Buddy Bregman – who handled some of Anita's best studio sessions – and backings are by Japanese bandleaders Toshiyuki Miyama and Takeshi Inomata – both of whom bring just the right of hard-swinging energy to the date to match O'Day's great vocals. The tunes here have only ever been issued on DVD before – making this CD the first album appearance of the tracks – and titles include a great version of "Four Brothers", plus "Stella By Starlight", "Tea For Two", "Night & Day", "You'd Be So Nice To Come Home To", "Boogie Blues", "Travelin Light", "Bewitched", "Avalon", and "Let's Fall In Love".  © 1996-2024, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

Used CD Grade

We only use the grade "Used CD" for non-new CDs. This all-encompassing grade was chosen it because we only buy and offer used CDs in the best possible condition.

When you purchase a used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use, but if there are significant details or defects we will describe the item's condition (just like we do with LPs), so look for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details before ordering.

All of our used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. After you receive a used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly. If it does not, you can request a return for a full refund.
