❔

Overlooked magic from singer Felicia Sanders – just the sort of vocalist who would have been right at home in the New York small club scene of the 50s – particularly the kind of hip venues north of 42nd Street! The material here definitely echoes that quality – tunes penned by Kurt Weill, who always brought more sophistication to his songs than most – arranged by Irv Joseph with an understated vibe that really lets the singer take the lead – even when the charts are relatively full. In addition to some of the better-known Weill material, there's some lesser-known gems here – and tracks include "Mon Ami My Friend", "O Heart Of Love", "Speak Low", "This Is New", "Green Up Time", "Here I'll Stay", and "Thousands Of Miles".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

Beautiful work from Felicia Sanders – a singer with a full, rich voice that has a magical kind of flow in just the right setting – which is definitely the case on this album!

Sarah Vaughan

No Count Sarah
Mercury, 1958. Very Good+
The title's a bit of a joke – because the record features a batch sidemen from the Count Basie band – Thad Jones, Joe Newman, Freddy Green, Billy Mitchell, Frank Foster, and others – all working with Sarah, but the Count's name is missing, due to contractual obligations! Despite ... LP, Vinyl record album

When The Sun Goes Down
Concord, 1985. Very Good+

Rosemary Clooney & The HI-Lo's

Ring Around Rosie
Columbia, 1955. Very Good
Very groovy stuff! 12 jazzy duets between Rosemary Clooney and The Hi-Lo's, one of the most magnificent male vocal groups of the 50s.

Capitol, 1966. Very Good
Tender Loving Care has Nancy singing with arranger Billy May – who comes across here with a bit more sensitivity than usual for his Capitol work, especially given the 60s time of the recording!
