Mad About The Boy

LP (Item 78067) Inner City, 1976 — Condition: Sealed

Surprisingly wonderful work by Cybill Shepherd – recorded early in her career, and a very serious attempt to express herself as a jazz vocalist! Part of the reason for the success is the fact that Cybill's working here with a great group that includes Stan Getz on tenor, Frank Rosolino on trombone, Monty Budwig on bass, and other west coast players – but another part of the success is Cybill's warm and sweet vocals, as evocative at this point as she was in her fine performances on film. Instrumentation often hits a cool, breezy sort of sound – almost bossa at some of the best points, which really transforms the older tunes! Titles include "Triste", "I Can't Get Started", "I'm Falling In Love Again", "Do It Again", "Speak Low", "It Never Entered My Mind", and a great grooving take on "Mad About The Boy".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

Paramount, 1974. Sealed Gatefold
Cybill Shepherd sings Cole Porter tunes as they were originally written – meaning that all the double meanings and "blue" lyrics are intact without the editing that was later done for the general listening public. Her singing is not bad, very much in the style of a Broadway musical ... LP, Vinyl record album

Teddi King with Dave McKenna

This Is New – Teddi King Sings Ira Gershwin
Inner City, 1978. Near Mint- Gatefold
A very laidback little album from Teddi King – a set that mostly features Teddi singing with only piano accompaniment from Dave McKenna, and which also features a few solo tracks by Dave as well! Teddi's voice has changed a bit since the 50s – but in a good way, with a bit more human ... LP, Vinyl record album

MPS, 1977. Near Mint-
One of the grooviest albums cut by this legendary MPS vocal group – a set that has some very hip friends from the American scene – who blend perfectly with the soaring vocals that the quartet forged in Germany for the MPS label!

Riverside, 1960. Very Good+
We're always big fans of Bev Kelly's work, but this album is way hipper than the usual vocal album of its type from the time – thanks to a sweet little lineup that features Pony Poindexter on alto sax and Flip Nunez on piano! The presence of Poindexter's horn is always a treat, on the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ann Richards/Stan Kenton

Two Much
Capitol, Mid 50s. Very Good+
Ann's a more lustily voiced singer than the sort that usually worked with Stan Kenton during the 50s – with a deep range in her delivery of a song, and a mode of singing that's a bit more unbridled than you'd expect for someone working under Stan. This set's a lot more Ann's album than it is ... LP, Vinyl record album

A mixed bag of tracks from Jon Hendricks – but with some really great moments! The set was recorded in Germany in 1972, and it features Jon running through a variety of styles to please the crowd – some of them blusey, some of them straight readings of older numbers – but on a ...

Thanks For Nothing
Reprise, 1964. Near Mint-
A surprisingly dark, smoky set of tunes from Rosemary Clooney – a rare set for Reprise, and her last new LP to appear until the late 70s! Rosemary cuts a number of well known numbers here, which is not a surprise, but the number of searingly bleak tunes here does make it a bit of a jolt ... LP, Vinyl record album
