❔

Rare US issue of this amazing album by the legendary French vocal group Les Double Six. The group included a core of the early Swingle Singers, and featured members Ward Swingle and Christine Legrand, two of France's best jazz vocalists at the time. On this LP, the group runs through a tightly swinging set of vocalese versions of Quincy Jones compositions and arrangements – including classics like "Doodlin", "Meet Benny Bailey", "French Rat Race", and "Boo's Bloos". The whole thing never stops swinging, and the harmony vocals are amazing!  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Rainbow label mono pressing. Cover has light wear.)

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.

Capitol, 1961. Very Good
One of Peggy Lee's jazziest albums, thanks to some pretty darn smart arrangements by a young Quincy Jones! Quincy takes Peggy's great vocal style and gives it a nice extra umph, in the way that he did on similar vocal sessions from the same time (like Sinatra's famous "Fly Me to the Moon" ...

Capitol, 1960. Near Mint-
Amazing stuff, and easily one of June's greatest albums – even if it is an unusual one! The format here is a far cry from the boozier modes of June's earlier career – as the tunes on the set are mostly children's songs, redone as jazzier numbers by June and the Joe Castro Quartet ...

Four Freshmen

Voices In Modern
Capitol, 1955. Very Good
Brilliant harmony vocals by the Four Freshman – an album with a title that perfectly sums up the Four Freshman contribution to 50s jazz, and their sublime way of re-casting vocals in their work! Most of the numbers on the set are familiar ones, but they're redone by the group with a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Warm & Wonderful
Capitol, Late 50s. Very Good+
A nicely mellow album from this female harmony group – almost the gals answer to the sound of the Four Freshmen on Capitol! The set is laidback, with some larger backings by Alvino Ray that have a great round tone that fleshes out the sound nicely. LP, Vinyl record album
Capitol, 1959. Very Good+
A surprising return to jazz by Dinah Shore – recorded with backings by the Red Norvo Quintet, and a swinging style that makes us like her more than we'd think! Titles include "Who", "It's Funny To Everyone", "Bye Bye Blues", "Lover Come Back To Me", ... LP, Vinyl record album

Nat King Cole

To Whom It May Concern
Capitol, 1959. Very Good+
A great late album from Nat King Cole – one done with some wonderfully rich arrangements by Nelson Riddle, which unlock all the poise and class that Cole had developed during his 50s decade at Capitol Records! There's definitely a slight ear here towards the Johnny Mathis sound that was ... LP, Vinyl record album

Nat King Cole

Love Is The Thing
Capitol, 1957. Very Good+
A classic from Nat King Cole – one of his greatest albums of the 50s, and a mature batch of ballads that show he had really developed into a heck of a singer! Arrangements are by Gordon Jenkins, and the set features a rich array of moody material – including "When I Fall In ... LP, Vinyl record album
