Frankie Laine was one of the 50s' most amazing pop singers – and apart from a few tiny nods for his chart hits, nobody ever gives him the credit he deserves! We love this Hell Bent For Leather set – which features Frankie doing some of the Western-oriented material that became his big thing in later days. The record features a remake of his earlier hit "Mule Train", plus lots of nice ones like "Bowie Knife", "Gunfight At The OK Corral", "Cool Water", "City Boy", and "The 3:10 to Yuma".

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.

One of the weirdest, wildest albums ever from Eddie Jefferson – a real standout classic that shows him retooling his sound for the 70s!

Fantastic stuff – and a key example of the penetration of psychoanalysis in the US during the postwar years!

Hello Amigos
RCA, 1960. Very Good
A very unique outing – a set that mixes the sweet harmonies of The Ames Brothers with wild backings from Esquivel! Most of the tracks are in Spanish, and have Esquivel doing a standard Latin sound, but which also approaches his own solo work in some of the more unusual moments! LP, Vinyl record album
