Many Moods Of Ann Richards

LP (Item 593848) Capitol, Late 50s — Condition: Very Good+

Quite possibly the greatest album ever from Kenton vocalist Ann Richards – and a set that really helps her break into some new territory too! The set's definitely got the many moods implied in the title – thanks to arrangements from Ralph Carmichael, Bill Holman, and Tak Shindo – all of whom do a good job of pushing Ann past the standard torchy female singer styles of the time – especially Shindo, who brings in a nice touch of the exotic! Richards has a great sound – one that's clearly inherited from June Christy, but in the best possible way – and titles include "Something's Coming", "I'm Late", "Lazy Afternoon", "By Myself", "I'm Gonna Laugh", and "Where Did You Go" – a nice vocal take on "Jordu"!  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Rainbow label stereo pressing.)

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.

Ann Richards

I'm Shooting High
Capitol, 1958. Near Mint-
Nicely swinging work from vocalist Ann Richards – a singer we first came to know for her work with Stan Kenton, but who's really emerging here as a strong talent with a voice that's all her own! The setting here is more upbeat than some of Ann's other records – with very lively ... LP, Vinyl record album

Janice Harper

Embers Of Love
Capitol, Late 50s. Very Good
One of the few albums ever cut by vocalist Janice Harper – a vocalist with a style that's a bit more pronounced than some of her contemporaries on Capitol. At one level, Janice is singing here in a mode that's a bit like that of Kay Starr – but perhaps not as dramatic, nor as pop-orient ... LP, Vinyl record album

Frank Sinatra

Look To Your Heart
Capitol, Late 50s. Very Good
A nice little set from Frank – and similar to the album This Is Sinatra, a record that collects some of his non-LP singles for Capitol from the 50s. Because of this, the album's got a style that varies from track to track – but in a nice way – and titles include "Anytime ... LP, Vinyl record album
Capitol, Late 50s. Very Good+
One of our favorite sides by this excellent 50s vocal group – a tightly swinging batch of tracks with a really moody, modern edge! Half the set is arranged by the great Pete Rugolo, in the manner of the group's famous "trombones" session, done earlier with Pete – and the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Frank Sinatra

No One Cares
Capitol, 1959. Near Mint-
Sinatra at his lonely best – as emphasized by the cover image, which has him sitting alone at a bar, looking sadly into his drink. The album's got backings by Gordon Jenkins, a bit more flowery than some of Nelson Riddle's, but in that sad dreamy mode that Sinatra worked with on the Wee ... LP, Vinyl record album

Nat King Cole

Just One Of Those Things
Capitol, 1957. Very Good
Titles include "When Your Lover Has Gone", "These Foolish Things", "Just For The Fun Of It", "The Party's Over", and "The Song Is Ended". Billy May arrangements! LP, Vinyl record album

Dakota Staton

Time To Swing
Capitol, 1959. Very Good
It's time to swing, but with a classy sound throughout – very much the best mix of modes Dakota Staton brought to her key early years at Capitol Records! Backings are by Sid Feller, and are pretty darn jazzy throughout – more so than some of Sid's other work of the time – a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Nat King Cole

Ramblin' Rose
Capitol, Early 60s. Near Mint-
... LP, Vinyl record album

Nat King Cole

This Is Nat King Cole
Capitol, Early 50s. Very Good+
Titles include "To The Ends Of The Earth", "Forgive My Heart", "Annabelle", "Love Me As Though There Were No Tomorrow", and "Dreams Can Tell A Lie". LP, Vinyl record album

Judy Garland

Letter
Capitol, 1959. Near Mint- Gatefold
A compelling later album from Judy Garland – almost a concept record, with a narrative story presented by John Ireland in between Garland's vocals! LP, Vinyl record album

Nancy Wilson

Lush Life
Capitol, Late 60s. Very Good
Genius work from Nancy Wilson – the kind of Capitol Records gem that was partly jazz, partly soul, and very much in that special territory that made Wilson one of the most mature, sophisticated singers of the 60s! The record's got Nancy working through some material with bluer currents, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Columbia, Mid 60s. Near Mint-
One of Tony Bennett's most fantastic albums from the 60s, and a record that features some nice jazzy arrangements that push past the usual heavy studio ones. The album includes a great reading of "Samba Do Aviao" with backing by Carlos Lyra, Helcio Milito, and Al Cohn – plus "F ... LP, Vinyl record album
