Sing Baby Sing

LP (Item 6484) Storyville, Mid 50s — Condition: Very Good

One of the greatest albums ever cut by Jackie and Roy! This one captures them in the early days – right after they'd left Charlie Ventura, and were beginning to sing and pen some fantastic little jazz ditties on their own. The album features the recorded debut of Tommy Wolf, who would become one of their greatest writers – on the track "Season In The Sun" – plus a number of great tunes by Roy, like "Why Not Admit It", "You Are The One", and "Hook Line And Snare".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Red label pressing with deep groove – nice and clean! Top cover seam has a bit of splitting, but cover is very nice overall.)

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.

Jackie & Roy at the height of their ABC powers – really stepping out strongly here with a bold jazz vocal approach that nobody else can touch!

Jackie & Roy

Bogie
Fantasy, 1988. Sealed
We love this record – a larger concept album from Jackie & Roy – almost their Ishtar moment! It's late in the career of Jackie & Roy, but the pair haven't faltered a bit. Bogie is a surprisingly great live set from 1988 – a dozen songs dedicated to Humphrey Bogart, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Great small group work from these two 40s singers!

Storyville, 1955. Very Good
A warmly crafted vocal session from Lee Wiley – very spare, with a no-nonsense approach that makes the record one of her best of the 50s. The backing group's a quartet led by pianist Jimmy Jones, and it also includes Ruby Braff on trumpet, who gives the tracks a moody sound that works very ... LP, Vinyl record album

Chris Connor

This Is Chris
Bethlehem, Mid 50s. Very Good-
Beautifully icy vocals from the amazing Chris Connor – the kind of record that set a new standard for vocal jazz back in the 50s! The session's a small group one – with Chris singing intimately alongside backing from Herbie Mann on flute and tenor, Kai Winding and JJ Johnson on ... LP, Vinyl record album
Philips, Late 60s. Very Good
Fantastic early soul from Dusty Springfield – material recorded in England, but done with a style that's every bit as warmly wonderful as her later American sessions in the south! Even before hitting Memphis or Muscle Shoals, Springfield brings a sense of soul to her music that most of her ... 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
Tangerine/ABC, Early 60s. Good
Perhaps the rarest of all Jimmy Scott albums – and perhaps the best, too! Jimmy cut this one for Ray Charles' Tangerine label (it was the label's first) – a fact that's driven home on the front cover, where a lounging sexy couple is reclining in front of a fire with a bottle of wine ...
