Hey Baby

LP (Item 722598) Atco, 1966 — Condition: Sealed

Incredibly groovy work from the team of Nino Tempo and April Stevens – a sweet bit of 60s pop with plenty of Sunshine touches! The pair have a gentle swing that's totally great on just about every track – a unqiuely jaunty groove that's almost the Atco equivalent of the sound that Chris Montez was getting over at A&M – but in a different way that really stands out nicely, too! Nino's vocals dominate April's nicely – creating a rough/sweet blend that's a great contrast from other modes of 60s pop – a bit more gritty at points than you might expect, in ways that really offset the sweet grooves in a great way. There's a bit more soul content here than usual – and titles include "Poison Of Your Kiss", "Hey Baby", "No Hair Sam", "The Coldest Night Of The Year", "Think Of You", and "Tomorrow Is Too Soon A Memory".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Stereo pressing. Shrinkwrap has some sticker remnants and a hole in front. Cover has a small cutout hole.)

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.

The first solo set from Peter Gabriel – and a record that was quite a surprise upon initial release – kind of a stripped-down variant of the energy that Gabriel brought to his early work with Genesis, presented in a nicely lean way that allowed for all the best focus on his key ideas! ...

The last album in the legendary run of records from Ginger Baker and the brothers Adrian and Paul Gurvitz – a heck of a power trio, but one that comes across in a very different way than Baker's famous work in Cream!

A pretty groovy little record – featuring the String A Long guitar group of early 60s pop fame, recorded with lots of multi-tracking work to make the guitars go bigger, and the sound go wider.

Vanilla Fudge
Atco, 1967. Very Good
One of the coolest concepts for a record in the 60s – and a set that's the first, and maybe crowning achievement of Vanilla Fudge!

One of Nico's darkest albums – and the kind of record we always suggest to those who doubt her genius!
