Offered for sale is an original U.S. stereo pressing of Chris Connor Sings Ballads of the Sad Cafe by Chris Connor.
About this copy: This copy of Chris Connor Sings Ballads of the Sad Cafe is a 1959 U.S. stereo pressing on the green Atlantic label.
The cover is VG+ with slight edge and corner wear.
The green label stereo disc is M- with one or two spindle marks on the labels, but no marks on the vinyl. Clean disc!
A nice copy of a pretty good Jazz LP that is quite hard to find as an original stereo pressing, as Atlantic changed label artwork shortly after the album’s release.
Background: Released in 1959, Chris Connor Sings Ballads of the Sad Cafe was the seventh album that Chris Connor recorded for Atlantic Records.
Chris Connor uses several different musical settings for this album of torch songs, but the main distinction is between the arrangements that employ strings, such as “The End of a Love Affair,” and those that use horns, such as “Bargain Day.” The backgrounds color Connor’s vocal interpretations, and she often interacts with the musicians, notably with flautist Eddy Jaspar in “These Foolish Things,” a virtual duet.
