Trav'lin Light

CD (Item 600156) Capitol, Late 40s — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

CD

✈

Amidst the clutter of pop-oriented Peggy Lee reissues on the market, it's often difficult to find a CD that shows how strong a jazz singer she was back in the day. This set nicely corrects that problem by offering up 15 great little jazzy gems by Peggy – all originally recorded for Capitol's radio transcription service, and never offered to the public before! The backing is by a quintet led by guitarist Dave Barbour, with some extra guitar by George Van Epps, and a nice mellow sound that brings out the best in Peggy's voice – in a very different style than you'll hear on her big band and pop recordings from the same time. Titles include "Imagination", "Trav'lin Light", "When A Woman Loves A Man", "I Let A Song Go Out Of Your Heart", and "Somebody Loves Me". Peggy selected the tracks herself, too!  © 1996-2020, 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 have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible.

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 list them underneath the item — just like we do with LPs — so look there for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details.

All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.
