Steve's Songs

LP (Item 689984) Dot, Late 50s — Condition: Sealed

Manny Albam plays the music of Steve Allen – with a group that includes solos from Gene Quill on alto, Al Cohn on tenor, Bob Brookmeyer on trombone and either Nick Travis or Ernie Royal on trumpets!  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Stereo pressing. Shrinkwrap has a large tear. Cover has a cutout hole and a stereo sticker.)

Sealed

This is what it says, that the record is still held fast in shrink-wrap. We tend to be pretty suspicious about these things, so if the shrink-wrap doesn't look original, or if the record seems to have undergone some damage over time, we'll probably take it out of the wrapper to ensure that it's in good shape — which is why we don't have more of these. In some cases the shrink-wrap may be torn in spots, but if it's not possible the record has been taken out and played, the record will still qualify as "Sealed".

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.

Soulful Brass
Impulse, 1968. Near Mint- Gatefold
One of the grooviest records that Steve Allen ever cut – thanks largely to some hip arrangements from the mighty Oliver Nelson!

Bye Bye Birdie
United Artists, 1963. Near Mint-
A great little jazz version of the score to the musical Bye Bye Birdie – one that we love for its original tunes, and which really lends itself to jazzy interpretation!

United Artists, 1967. Very Good+
One of the greatest soundtracks ever – an archetypal album from French composer Francis Lai, and a record that set the tone for countless other imitations to come – yet which is still the best!

Nonesuch, 1968. Very Good+ Gatefold
