Two Much

LP (Item 60645) Capitol, Mid 50s — Condition: Very Good

Ann's a more lustily voiced singer than the sort that usually worked with Stan Kenton during the 50s – with a deep range in her delivery of a song, and a mode of singing that's a bit more unbridled than you'd expect for someone working under Stan. This set's a lot more Ann's album than it is Kenton's – and arrangements, by the likes of Gene Roland, Bill Holman, and Johnny Richards, are all pretty swinging with more room for Ann's voice than horn solos. Titles include "No Moon At All", "The Morning After", "I Was The Last One To Know", "All Or Nothing At All", and "Don't Be That Way".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Rainbow label stereo pressing. Cover has split seams held with old tape, an index sticker on the spine, and light wear.)

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.

Where Did They Go
Capitol, 1971. Very Good+
Brilliant late work by Peggy Lee – following strongly on the heels of Is That All There Is, and done with a style that's even sadder, and more life-weary! The title cut – "Where Did They Go" – is simply amazing – the kind of boozy, regretful tune that never seemed ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sugar 'N' Spice
Capitol, 1962. Very Good
Peggy's sweet as sugar, but working here with a heck of a lot of spice – thanks to arranger Benny Carter, who brings in a wonderfully jazzy feel to the set!

Nancy Wilson

Nancy – Naturally
Capitol, Late 60s. Very Good+
A great one from Nancy Wilson – a set that has the singer working with full arrangements from Billy May, who's got this surprisingly subtle approach at times that works really well with the soulful currents in Nancy's vocals! The approach is almost more like Oliver Nelson, especially with ... LP, Vinyl record album

A later Capitol gem by June – where she reprisies a number of classics from her early years with Stan Kenton – new versions of late 40s tunes, done here with Pete Rugolo arrangements that go a good way towards showing how both he and June had grown during the 50s. Titles include "H ... LP, Vinyl record album

Kay Starr

Movin'
Capitol, Late 50s. Very Good+
One of Kay's classics for Capitol – an upbeat, all-grooving set of tracks that showcases Starr's unique blend of swing and country phrasing! Van Alexander handled all the arrangements – and the tracks have lots of snapping percussion at the bottom, nice bluesy phrasings, and a fair bit ... LP, Vinyl record album

June Christy

Gone For the Day
Capitol, 1957. Very Good
That's "gone" – as in the way June Christy really sends us – vocals that take us to a place that few other 50s singers could ever hope to reach! June's work here is a masterpiece of melancholic understatement – far less overblown than some of her pop contemporaries, but ... LP, Vinyl record album

A fantastic step forward for singer Morgana King – just the kind of record that really let the vocalist unlock all the sort of special power that would set her apart from the rest for decades to come!
