Penthouse Serenade – Nat King Cole At The Piano

LP (Item 610839) Capitol, Early 50s — Condition: Very Good

Sublime instrumentals from Nat – his tinkling piano lines over lush arrangements – all in a sweet 50s Capitol mode!  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Mono rainbow label pressing.)

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.

Nat King Cole

Thank You, Pretty Baby
Capitol, Mid 60s. Near Mint-
Late work by Nat King Cole – and pretty nice, too! A record that tends to fall off the map of Nat's classic Capitol catalog, as its from the later years, when his overall concept was possibly a bit diluted, but his voice was still going strong. Orchestrations on the album is courtesy of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Nat King Cole

Love Is The Thing
Capitol, 1957. Very Good+
A classic from Nat King Cole – one of his greatest albums of the 50s, and a mature batch of ballads that show he had really developed into a heck of a singer! Arrangements are by Gordon Jenkins, and the set features a rich array of moody material – including "When I Fall In ... LP, Vinyl record album

Nancy Wilson & Cannonball Adderley

Nancy Wilson/Cannonball Adderley
Capitol, Mid 60s. Very Good+
The sweet vocals of Nancy join the classic Cannonball quintet for a great set of soul jazz tunes that was one of Capitol's biggest selling jazz sides in the 60s! About half the cuts feature Nancy on vocals – on tunes like "Save Your Love For Me", "Never Will I Marry", ... LP, Vinyl record album

Peggy Lee

Man I Love
Capitol, 1957. Near Mint-
Quite a rare album from Peggy Lee – and a strange one too!

One of Bobby's best records for Capitol – a straight set of pop tunes and standards, arranged and conducted by Richard Wess (who arranged Darin's hit "Mack The Knife" for Atco), and featuring jazz players that include Bud Shank, Plas Johnson, Pete Candoli, and Lou Levy.

June Christy

Misty Miss Christy
Capitol, Mid 50s. Very Good-
One of June's all-time classics – and perhaps her most famous album, next to the sublime Something Cool. The set, like that one, was arranged and conducted by Pete Rugolo – whose icy and modern touches are the perfect foil for June's sad and dark voice. Familiar tunes are completely ...

Dinah Shore

Dinah, Yes Indeed!
Capitol, 1959. Very Good-
An overlooked swinger from Dinah Shore – one done for Capitol right at the end of the 50s, with some sublime arrangements by Nelson Riddle! Riddle brings a bounce to the record that Dinah doesn't always get – but without ever making the set gimmicky at all, as with some of her more ... LP, Vinyl record album
