Singin The Blues
LP (Item 651048) RCA/Camden, Late 30s/1940s — Condition: Very Good
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.
Nina's not just singing the blues here – she's completely reinventing the sound of the format – by drawing on a long tradition of vocal expression, and infusing it with the hipper, more personally exploratory mode she forged in the 60s! The album's got a subtle brilliance that means ... LP, Vinyl record album
One of Lena Horne's greatest albums of the 50s – a rock-solid effort that takes its name from her famous film appearance of the 40s, but which features some wonderfully sophisticated songs in a very postwar mode! As with other RCA dates of the time, the orchestra's handled by Lena's partner ... LP, Vinyl record album
Think what you want about Lena Horne, the lady's got one of the most distinct voices of her time – and she really sparkled nicely during her years at RCA! This set features backing from longtime collaborator Lennie Hayton, in a style that was lush, but never cloying – and which brought ... LP, Vinyl record album
A great set of torchy ballads from Lee Wiley – a singer who virtually helped invent the genre on record with her classic sets for Columbia Records! This album's done a few years after those – and features backings by Ralph Burns, who brings a fair bit more sentimental moments to his ... LP, Vinyl record album
An overlooked vocal session from RCA – recorded in that magical year of 1957, when it seemed the label would never stop putting out great music! Jennie Smith is one of the lesser-known girl singers on the label, but she definitely fits in well with their approach – getting full ... LP, Vinyl record album
A wonderful session from 1958 – one that pairs the sexy vocals of Abbe Lane with the mad orchestrations of Sid Ramin! Lane's a singer with a strong ear for jazz, and an equally charming talent for cheesecake – both of which come into play nicely in this set of man-themed tunes! The ... LP, Vinyl record album
Matt Dennis is best-known to most as the composer of the classic evergreen "Angel Eyes" – but he's also a pretty great singer and piano player, with an easy and hip style that's a lot like Bobby Troup. This album's one of the few he ever cut in this mode – and is a great ... LP, Vinyl record album
A brilliant record – Kenny Rankin's first, and a really unique mix of styles that's completely different from his more famous later albums! The album has a gentle folksy style with touches of jazz – a bit like some of Tim Hardin's work for Verve, but without as much of a sad loser ... LP, Vinyl record album
Twelve tracks, including "You've Got Me Crying Again", "Out Of Sight, Out Of Mind", "Stardust", "Harbor Lights", "You Taught Me", "Don't Go To Strangers", and "I Wish I Didn't Love You So". LP, Vinyl record album
