White Hot Stamper

Ella Fitzgerald
Get Happy!

  (Item #: fitzggetha_2002_6) 

Our Price: $249.99
Sale Price: $199.99 (You save $50.00 / 20%)


  • Ella's 1959 release for Verve (in stereo!) makes its Hot Stamper debut here with Shootout Winning Triple Plus (A+++) sound on both sides
  • The sound is big, rich, lively and dynamic, with Ella's astounding vocal range rendered as only an All Tube Analog chain can
  • These sides reproduce both the breath, as well as the front and center immediacy, of The First Lady of Song's vocals, with tubey rich orchestral arrangements in support
  • "As usual, Ella uplifts all of the material and her best moments come on 'Somebody Loves Me,' a heartfelt 'Moonlight Becomes You,' a scat-filled 'Blue Skies' and (somewhat surprisingly) 'St. Louis Blues.'... the formerly obscure 'Get Happy' finds Ella Fitzgerald at the peak of her powers."

Ella Fitzgerald
The Rodgers & Hart Song Book, Vol. 2

  (Item #: fitzgsings_rodgers_2_1908_10_03) 

Our Price: $249.99

  • An incredible sounding copy with Shootout Winning Triple Plus (A+++) sound or close to it on both sides
  • Orchestral space and midrange richness that puts this pressing far beyond the other copies we played
  • Bigger, bolder, with more energy and more of the “you-are-there-immediacy” of a vocal recording from 1956 - this is what sets the best vintage pressings apart from reissues, CDs, and pretty much everything else
  • 5 stars: "The arrangements by Buddy Bregman for the string orchestra and big band only border on jazz but Ella manages to swing the medium-tempo numbers and give sensitivity to the ballads. With such songs as "You Took Advantage of Me," "It Never Entered My Mind," "My Funny Valentine," and "Blue Moon," it is not too surprising that these recordings were so popular."

Ella and Louis

  (Item #: fitzgella_and_louis_2004) 

Our Price: $199.99

  • Outstanding sound on this early Verve Mono LP with both sides earning solid Double Plus (A++) grades
  • No modern pressing can hope to put Ella and Louis right in the room with you the way this one from 1956 can
  • One of the greatest duet albums of all time, if not THE GREATEST - a Desert Island Disc to beat them all

Ella Fitzgerald
Rhythm Is My Business

  (Item #: fitzgrhyth_1904_9_02) 

Our Price: $199.99

  • This outstanding copy of Ella's superb follow-up to Clap Hands boasts insanely good Triple Plus (A+++) sound or very close to it on both sides
  • What took us by surprise was the richness and sweetness of this early Stereo Verve - so many of Ella's early albums don't have the smooth, natural vocals heard on this pressing
  • We absolutely love the swinging R&B organ Bill Doggett brought to these big band sessions, all backing an exceptionally well recorded First Lady of Song
  • "Ella Fitzgerald is in the spotlight throughout, mostly singing swing-era songs along with a couple of newer pieces... [her] voice was in its prime, and the charts are excellent."

Our Price: $169.99

  • With a shootout winning Triple Plus (A+++) side two and a Double Plus (A++) side one, this early stereo pressing is a knockout - exceptionally quiet vinyl too
  • Ella is rich, Tubey Magical and breathy - this is the way she should sound, and that makes this copy a true Demo Disc
  • To get the vocals AND the brass to sound right on the same copy is the trick, and these two sides pulled it off
  • 4 1/2 Stars: "...this 1963 LP was the first time (other than a couple songs) that Ella Fitzgerald and Count Basie recorded together. The match-up was so logical that it would be repeated many times over the next 20 years."
