Frances Faye In Frenzy

LP (Item 622998) Verve, Late 50s — Condition: Very Good

A rare set from singer Frances Faye – and a great one, too – thanks to arrangements from Russ Garcia!  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Mono MGM pressing. Cover has light surface wear, some aging, and a small spot of tape on the top seam.)

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.

Bethlehem, 1955. Very Good+
A surprisingly great set that features Francis Faye singing jazz renditions of older folk songs – one of the first such sessions of its type (the genre would become more popular a few years later), and done with an approach that has the songs all re-tuned for a 50s modern ear by Russ Garcia, ...

Al Hibbler

Sings Love Songs
Verve, Mid 50s. Very Good+
Rare Verve work from the great Al Hibbler – excellent titles with backing from Johnny Hodges, Count Basie, and Leroy Lovett! LP, Vinyl record album

Ella Fitzgerald

Ella In Hollywood
Verve, 1961. Sealed
A nice little Verve session that breaks from the usual format – especially the "Songbooks" one – and features Ella in LA with small group backing by Jim Hall, Lou Levy, Wilfred Middlebrooks, and Gus Johnson. The set was recorded live at the Crescendo – in a jazzily ... LP, Vinyl record album
Verve, Late 50s. Very Good+
An excellent album of vocals by the great Joe Williams! Joe's always been a fine singer, but with Basie, he really gets the backing he needs to do his work the best. And although this album isn't as authenico as it might be, it still comes from a time when Verve really knew how to handle singers ... LP, Vinyl record album

Monica Lewis

Sing It To The Marines
Verve, 1957. Very Good+
The cover of this one might make the album one of the campiest records on Verve – but the session's a surprisingly great one, with a straighter vocal approach than you'd guess! Monica's got a really sweet vocal style – a bit sexy, and certainly adult – arranged here with some ... LP, Vinyl record album
Verve, 1961. Very Good
Titles include "Night In Tunisia", "Cry Me A River", "This Year's Kisses", "Music Goes Round & Round", "Clap Hands Here Comes Charlie", "My Reverie", and "You're My Thrill". LP, Vinyl record album

Ella Fitzgerald

Hello Dolly! (2nd cover)
Verve, 1964. Near Mint-
A definite shot at the pop market by Ella Fitzgerald – quite possibly recorded as a follow-up to the 60s success of former singing partner Louis Armstrong, who's referenced nicely in Ella's rendition of the title hit! The first 4 tracks on the set were done in the UK, under the leadership of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Patty Waters

Patty Waters Sings
ESP, 1966. Very Good+
One of 2 ESP sessions by Patty Waters – one of the most groundbreaking vocalists of the 60s, and a singer with a style that mixed equal parts jazz and folk! In a way, Patty's got a sound that's somewhat like Nina Simone at her best – in that she dominates a tune completely, singing as ... LP, Vinyl record album

Annie Ross with Zoot Sims

Gasser!
World Pacific, 1959. Very Good+
Great stuff – one of Annie Ross' rare albums as a solo act away from her trio with Jon Hendricks and Dave Lambert – and a great little session cut with small combo jazz backing, which gives the song a nice swinging edge! Zoot Sims is the main soloist on the tunes, Russ Freeman lays ... LP, Vinyl record album

Matt Dennis

She Dances Overhead
RCA, 1955. Very Good+
Dreamy vocals from Matt Dennis – a set of Rodgers & Hart numbers, performed in a sweetly swaying style that has plenty of warm touches. Unlike some of Matt's smaller combo records, this set's got larger backings from the orchestra of Harry Geller – using some light strings and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Wing, Mid 50s. Very Good
One of the first albums ever cut by Jackie Paris – an excellent male singer from the 50s, of the same generation as Mark Murphy and Bobby Troup, but who unfortunately never made a name as big as either of those two. This set has Jackie singing with arrangements by Manny Albam – fairly ... LP, Vinyl record album
Capitol (France), Mid 50s-Early 60s. Near Mint- 3LP Box Set
