PEGGY LEE - - "Ole' ala Lee!" - Capitol 1961 1st Pressing [Expired]


no longer for sale

"Velvety flutes, peppy percussion, well-behaved brass -- yes, the stage is set once more for Peggy Lee's sedately suggestive Latin musings. Seemingly ghost-written in George Shearing's ultra-lounge hand, this sequel to the singer's Latin ala Lee! album offers another enchanting mix of jazz-vocal staples ("Come Dance with Me," "You Stepped Out of a Dream") and Broadway-issue mambo ("Fantastico," "Non Dimencticar"). Never fear the drip-drip of gloss in extremis, though, for Lee always distinguishes the Cuban-lite environs with her throaty ballad tone and unerring rhythmic sense. Arranger and conductor Joe Harnell does let the Latin fire loose a bit ("From Now On"), but generally things remain on auto glide. A perfect backdrop for your next tiki-torch affair, this harmless conga turn -- while certainly not essential -- is sure to be eaten up by all of Lee's adoring fans." - AMG. This is a Capitol Records 1st Pressing from 1961. The record is NM-. The jacket is VG+. The LP plays/sounds Mint. Wonderful sound - very 'tube-like'. Warm, rich and spacious mids with open and transparent high's. Brass has 'bite and shimmer' but with no harshness at all. Imaging is very strong and there is much micro-detail. An especially excellent pressing/sound. Each record is washed on a VPI cleaning machine using a proprietary 3-5 agent process which is determined by the needs of the individual record. Each record is then listened to 100% to insure that the posted description is exactly what you can expect to get.
