Dante & His Orchestra

Don't know what cats ! have to do with this selection of instrumental tunes !!...But it's a great cover !!!....L/P cover designers running out of idea's !...Sooooooo stick SEX on the cover and a near naked lady and maybe we will sell some Records !!....must admit tho' its a good clear recording !!...And whoever wrote the back cover must have been on something !!! GREAT !!!
Thanks "John" for this unusual Gem !!!

... modern myrrh and mischief ...
flat-tummied, twin-turreted gamins ...
moist pouted underlips ... amoral pixies and confused carnivores
stuffed animals, jazz and racing cars ... lazy, lithe
child wastrels ... sic transit GINA and MARILYN
swiftly now, cross over the BRIGETTE.
Lush the sex kittens; lush their serenades ...
zee melodies Americaine burst like grapeseeds
from Paris terraces ... sweeping strings, tres hi fi, society brisk ...
whirring, purring ... gay, cyclical Sartrian
strains ... hers all hers ... her manner,
her madness ... HER MUSIC.

Jack Jones.

Another fist class L/P from Mr Jones...recorded 1965-66-67 according to the label on the L/P, so I imagine that might be some singles involved....usually the singer and producer of the L/P choose the songs for it and record then all in one go....or the tracks have been lying around for some time and someone decided to create an L/P

3. As Time Goes By.

The Four Freshmen.

Another great recording of songs by 4 guys who sing and play instruments..trombone and trumpets I believe !!....but not at the same time !!....great track is "Crazy Bones"

  4. I Wanna Go Where You Go.

 4. Can't Live Without Him Anymore.

Sarah Vaughan.

This is a great L/P from "Sassy"Recorded in 1960,Sarah is in the studio with a small jazz combo headed by trumpeter Harry 'Sweets' Edison and and pianist Jimmy Jones who provide suitably sympathetically support.She's in great voice and sounds completely at home with material that ranges from the jolly 'Have You Met Miss Jones' to the yearning 'Trouble is a Man' and the dangerously downbeat 'Gloomy Sunday.'......I got the L/P cover and the quote above from the "Net"......I gave the cover to a Friend who was a good copy artist to make me a copy of the cover....that was in the 60's needless to say I'm still waiting for it !!! track for my money is
"I'm Gonna Laugh You Right Out Of My Life"!!!!

Petula Clark

This Petula L/P was the only one that she recorded for MGM....obviously in america there is not much information on the back cover I think it was probably 1972 or thereabouts Pets in good voice and the tracks are a mixture pop tunes... and one written by her and one by Tony Hatch & Jackie Trent....The arrangments are by "Don Costa" who has done most of "Eydie Gorme's" L/Ps so they are cool !!...(Now is 1972)....not 2019 !!

6. Baby I'm Yours
