Just Sold Out!

LP, Vinyl record album

Also available
Julie London — London By Night (Japanese pressing) ... CD 14.99

Breathy vocals from the great Julie London – an album recorded early in her years on Liberty Records, but with a slightly full sound overall! Backings are by the orchestra of Pete King – a little heavy on the strings, but never too much so – just enough to give the tunes a sad-tinged sort of sound that glows and shimmers nicely behind Julie's vocals – very much in the moody feel you might expect from the trashy image of London in an alley on the cover! The set's never sleepy, and has a nicely dark undercurrent – on titles that include "Nobody's Heart", "The Exciting Life", "Something I Dreamed Last Night", "Well Sir", "In The Middle Of A Kiss", "Pousse Cafe", "Mad About The Boy", and "My Man's Gone Now".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Turquoise label pressing with deep groove. Cover has light wear.)

Very Good - (minus)

  • Vinyl may be dirty, and can lack a fair amount of luster.
  • Vinyl can have a number of marks, either in clusters or smaller amounts, but deeper.
  • This is the kind of record that you'd buy to play, but not because it looked that great. Still, the flaws should be mostly cosmetic, with nothing too deep that would ruin the overall record.
  • Examples include a record that has been kept for a while in a cover without the paper sleeve, or heavily played by a previous owner and has some marks across the surface. The record should play okay, though probably with surface noise.

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.

Love On The Rocks
Liberty, 1963. Very Good+
A record that has Julie London already hitting that great "Nice Girls Don't Stay For Breakfast" mode of later years – the adult, informed approach that showed that the teasing nude of the 50s had turned into a pleasing woman of the 60s – capable of frank presentation of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Liberty, 1963. Very Good
A nice, mature effort from Julie London – done with a great mix of 60s pop modes and some of the breathier styles of Julie's earlier years – often served up with backings from Ernie Freeman that have a bit of electric bass at the bottom, which helps to step the tunes along with a subtle ...

Love Letters
Liberty, 1962. Very Good
A set that has Julie London still working in the breathy and mellow style of her late 50s classics – with very spare backings that really let Julie's vocals take center stage, and often a nice guitar line in the front of the mix, picking its way through the tunes right behind Julie's voice! ...

About The Blues
Liberty, Late 50s. Near Mint-
Hip early work from Julie London – with full jazz orchestra backing by Russ Garcia, whose soundscapes are perfect for that dreamy style of singing she was using at the time – a blend of the sublime and sad, floating along with almost effortless ease, but hiding a huge wellspring of ...

Liberty, 1956. Very Good
A bit different than the early R&B work of Nellie Lutcher, but great too – a unified album of jazzy material, cut with backings by the great Russ Garcia! Titles include "It Had To Be You", "Three Little Words", "Blue Skies", "You Made Me Love You", ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ethel Azama

Cool Heat
Liberty, Early 60s. Very Good+
An album of straight jazz vocals from Hawaiian singer Ethel Azama – an artist who's perhaps better known for her more exotic Liberty album with Martin Denny, but who's working here in a much straighter mode with backings from the great Marty Paich! Paich is at the height of his powers here ... LP, Vinyl record album
Verve, 1958. Near Mint-
Anita O'Day is fast and free in this live set recorded at Chicago's famous Mister Kelly's nightclub – a venue that gives the recording a nice intimate feel! As with many of her Verve sides, Anita dominates the set with her wit, warmth, and personality – working the crowd as much as an ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gilbert O'Sullivan

Back To Front
MAM, 1972. Very Good
Perhaps the biggest album ever for Irish singer/songwriter Gilbert O'Sullivan – and the one that yielded him his big hit "Clair", a great little ditty about an uncle whose fallen in love with his niece! The track's a gem, and it's featured with loads of other great numbers like ... LP, Vinyl record album
Storyville, 1955. Very Good-
One of the first albums ever from the team of Jackie Caine and Roy Kral – and one of the best, too!
