Late Capitol work by the Four Freshmen – 2 albums that are some of the most obscure in their catalog! More 4 Freshmen & Five Trombones is a fitting follow-up to the group's original album – one of the best in their 50s catalog, thanks largely to Pete Rugolo, who makes a return appearance here to handle the arrangements. The sound is sublime – with tracks that are a bit more in the 60s mode of things, but still arranged to perfection by Rugolo. Four Freshmen In Person Volume 2 is another set of live recordings by the group – something that might seem discontinuous with their magical studio work of the 50s, but which only goes to show how great they really are – as the boys perform wonderfully in the live setting, using no studio tricks to get their unique vocal sound, making us wish we had the opportunity to see them live at the time! There's a total of 23 cuts in all – and titles include "The Second Time Around", "Midnight Sun", "Girl From Ipanema", "More", "Taste Of Honey", "Days Of Wine & Roses", "Poinciana", "Wail For The Bread", and "Act III".

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.

Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible. All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.

With our Used CDs, you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks — clean, and not dirty at all. You can also expect the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves — putting fresh cases on Used CDs we handle) — and you can expect the booklet to be in good shape, unless noted otherwise. We will list any specific details/defects underneath the item — so look for notes on cutout marks in the case, stamps on the barcode, or details like that.

Magical work by one of the greatest harmony groups ever! Four Freshmen & Five Saxes is one of our favorite sides by this excellent 50s vocal group – a tightly swinging batch of tracks with a really moody, modern edge! Half the set is arranged by the great Pete Rugolo, in the manner of ... CD

A masterpiece – and possibly the greatest record ever by the Four Freshmen! The album is arranged by Kentonite Pete Rugolo, who gives it a very dark feel – similar to his amazing work on June Christy's Something Cool album (which is a perfect complement to this one) – and he's ... CD

One of the greatest Bobby Darin albums ever!

A fitting set, in some way – as Sammy's rise in the 60s was equivalent to Nat's at the end of the 40s – but you've gotta admit, Sammy's vocals are quite quite different from those of Cole! Don't think of this one as a "tribute", so much as it's a collection of classic time-tes ... CD

A Capitol classic from Dakota Staton – and the record that made her a real leading lady at the label in the years before Nancy Wilson's rise! The set's got a wonderfully laidback feel that's in keeping with the title, yet it also swings nicely too – kind of a new level of soul in jazz ... CD
