Sinatra – Original Master Recording (Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab 16 LP Set)

LP (Item 601030) Capitol/Mobile Fidelity, 1950s — Condition: Near Mint-
16LP

A treasure trove of wonderful music – a 16 LP box set that features all of Sinatra's albums recorded for Capitol, along with great bonus material! As is well known, Sinatra's Capitol years were his finest – a time when he moved past a simple pop singer into a complicated vocalist with a sense of expression so deep that it lent itself perfectly to the emerging form of the long-playing record. Many of these albums are early "concept" sets by Sinatra, and feature moods and themes that move far beyond simple vocal work – into richly expressive territory that's hardly ever been matched again! Arrangers include Nelson Riddle, Billy May, Gordon Jenkins, and Alex Stordhal – and album titles include Come Fly With Me, Come Swing With Me, Songs For Swingin Lovers, In The Wee Small Hours, Where Are You, No One Cares, Come Dance With Me, Songs For Young Lovers, and Point Of No Return.  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Original box set version – in beautiful shape! Numbered plate #9563, includes all inner sleeves, and Geo Disc too. Box a few light scratches, but is great overall.)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor 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.

No One Cares

Sinatra at his lonely best – as emphasized by the cover image, which has him sitting alone at a bar, looking sadly into his drink.

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.
