With such songs as "You Took Advantage of Me," "The Lady Is a Tramp," "It Never Entered My Mind," "Where or When," "My Funny Valentine," and "Blue Moon," it is not too surprising that these recordings were so popular."

  • You'll find outstanding Double Plus (A++) sound on this Emus pressing of Count Basie and Tony Bennett's 1959 classic collaboration

  • 4 1/2 stars: "... the pairing between Bennett and Basie remains impressive. The band raves through tunes like "With Plenty Of Money And You," and Bennett matches them, drawing strength from the bravura arrangements, while band and singer achieve a knowing tenderness on "Growing Pains." This is an album well worth owning..."

Frank Sinatra
Sings... of Love and Things

  (Item #: sinatsings_of_love_1912_4) 

Our Price: $129.99

  • Two outstanding sides each earning Double Plus (A++) grades, and playing about as quietly as any early Rainbow Label Capitol stereo pressing can
  • This Capitol LP has the MIDRANGE MAGIC that’s missing from the later reissues, which, to our way of thinking, are not worth buying at any price. It gives you the sense that Frank Sinatra is standing right in front of you, and that's exactly the way we like to hear him
  • Somehow the man managed to record and release six studio albums in 1962, with this compilation making a total of seven for the year. Even more remarkable, all seven of them made the Top Ten of the pop charts
  • The music is excellent, as one can see from the track listing. It's hard to go wrong with these later Capitol Sinatra records. They're almost always a fun listen

Our Price: $74.99

  • This outstanding copy of Ella's superb follow-up to Clap Hands boasts solid Double Plus (A++) sound on both sides

  • 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

  • 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."
