Time Of Desire

LP (Item 883687) Hi Fi, Late 50s — Condition: Very Good

A great early record from Rod McKuen – maybe more of a beat poetry record than some of his later work – with jazzy backings by Paul Gray, and a group that features Tiny Timbrell on guitar and Phil Sobel on flute!  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Red & silver label pressing.)

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.

Rod sings his own songs – in that wonderfully raspy, broken-down voice – with arrangements by Perry Botkin, Mort Garson, and Gene Page! LP, Vinyl record album

Gloria Lynne

Gloria Lynne Calender
Hi Fi/Everest, Mid 60s. Very Good+
There's a pretty loose theme to this one – because although the album's supposed to have a "calender" concept, one in which Gloria runs through tunes for every month of the year, the adherence to this mode is a bit loose, and the choice of songs hardly reflects the months. Still, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Nancy Sinatra & Lee Hazlewood

Nancy & Lee
Reprise, Late 60s. Very Good
Sweet moody stuff from the period when the duo of Ms. Sinatra and Mr. Hazelwood was electric in the studio. This was back when he used to call her "Nasty" through the headphones in the vocal booth, and when the two of them put out such spooky spooky material as "Some Velvet ... LP, Vinyl record album

Julie London

Julie Is Her Name
Liberty, Late 50s. Very Good+
A landmark album in 50s vocal jazz – spare, moody, and evocative tunes from Julie London – sung in a stripped-down setting that few other singers would dare at the time! The sound of the set is as sexy as the cover – intimate, personal, and breathily sung in a mode that comes ... LP, Vinyl record album

Singers Unlimited

Friends
MPS, 1977. Very Good+
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! The music features vocal arrangements from group leader ... LP, Vinyl record album

Anita O'Day

Trav'lin Light
Verve, 1961. Very Good+
A lost little session from Anita O'Day – recorded with some hipper and more sophisticated arrangements than she'd been getting on 50s work for Verve – thanks to charts from Johnny Mandel and Russ Garcia! The style is great – a bit more laidback than some of O'Day's other Verve ... 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

Nancy Wilson

Nancy Wilson Show
Capitol, 1964. Very Good Gatefold
Early proof that Nancy Wilson was definitely on the right track with her career – a tremendous little live date recorded without any of the schmaltz or overdone showmanship of her contemporaries! Although the setting is the Cocoanut Grove, Nancy often makes us feel like she's putting over ... LP, Vinyl record album

Frank Sinatra

September Of My Years
Reprise, 1965. Very Good
A wonderfully mature album from Frank Sinatra – a set that has him coming to terms with his time in life, and expressing things with a beautiful quality that almost sets a whole new standard for his work! And in a way, the aesthetic here is almost that which would be picked up by a host of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Capitol, Late 50s. Very Good
A set of lovely, beautiful vocals from Jeri – with good natured, brass flavored arrangements by Billy May – excellently done, with a variety of moods from sweet and playful, to grand and romantic. Great stuff! Titles include "Don't Look At Me That Way", "Get Out Of ... LP, Vinyl record album
