Offered for sale is a still sealed mono copy of the 1963 LP All the Hits by Dee Dee Sharp.
About this copy: This copy of All the Hits is an original still sealed mono pressing from 1963 (there was no stereo issue.) While the shrink wrap has been removed from the cover, the record is still sealed in its polyethylene inner sleeve. The record is presumably new and unplayed.
The cover is VG++, with a bit of yellowing and some minor wear at the covers.
A nice copy of a scarce 1960s pop LP.
Background: Dee Dee Sharp had six songs reach the American Top 40 in 1962-1963, and while she regularly recorded through 1981, nothing she did ever achieved the success of her debut single, “Mashed Potato Time.”
Her 1963 LP titled All the Hits is an album with a misleading title. You’d think that an album called “All the Hits” would have all of her hit singles on it. In fact, All the Hits not only doesn’t have all of her hits on it, it doesn’t have any of her hits on it.
Titled as though it were a compilation album, All the Hits is actually an album of new material, albeit one where Sharp covers songs that were hits for other artists.
