Meg Myles At The Living Room

LP (Item 706706) Mercury, 1962 — Condition: Near Mint-

A sexy little set from singer Meg Myles – recorded live before a very adult nightclub crowd – with a great set of tunes to match! The record's got a lot more energy than Meg's previous material from the 50s – and Myles really has a way of swinging things with a sensual sort of punch – that new mode for the 60s that was put forth most strongly by Peggy Lee, and maybe a few other singers like Marian Montgomery! The backings are by a small combo, and really fit the mood well – and even though there's no dialogue between the tunes, the record really gives you a strong sense of Meg's presence on the club. Titles include "Flings", "New Shoes", "Everything I've Got", "It Amazes Me", "Femininity", and "Love Isn't Born It's Made".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Black label stereo pressing with deep groove. Cover has bumped corners at the bottom.)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor surface noise when played.

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.

This Is My Story
Mercury, Late 50s/1961. Very Good- 2LP Gatefold
A cool compilation that features one album of new recordings of older Dinah Washington hits – done in 1961 with backings by Quincy Jones – and another record that features some of Dinah's best bits for Mercury from the late 50s and early 60s! LP, Vinyl record album
Mercury, 1964. Near Mint-
An album for Mercury that features Mathis working with arranger Allyn Ferguson – who often gives Johnny the same sort of shimmering charts he might get from Glenn Osser, but who takes a bit more liberties here with the "make believe" modes promised in the title!

Shadow Of Your Smile
Mercury, 1966. Very Good+
Groovy Mercury Records work from Johnny Mathis – a record that has the singer both hitting classic modes, and stretching out towards some of the hip changes in 60s music as well!

This Is Love
Mercury, 1964. Very Good+
Great arrangements really make this one sparkle – thanks to backings from Allyn Ferguson, done in that perfect mix of soft strings and shimmering brass that seems to work best for the vocals of Johnny Mathis! The album's got a feel that's full, but never in a too-lush or sleepy way – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Love Is Everything
Mercury, Mid 60s. Very Good+
An album that's got Johnny working with arranger Glenn Osser – who always seemed to set the right tone to unlock the best side of Mathis' 60s vocals. Orchestrations are lush, but never sleeping – and have that wonderful pillow of sound approach that really lets Johnny open up and soar ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sweetheart Tree
Mercury, Mid 60s. Near Mint-
A unique album – in that it represents some unusual London sessions from Johnny Mathis – material recorded in the UK with different arrangers than usual – including Tony Osborne, Alyn Ainsworth, and Allyn Ferguson – all of whom help give Mathis a slight change of flavor here! ...
