Description

Offered for sale is an original U.S. pressing of the 1957 doo wop LP The Singing, Swinging Del Vikings Recording Session by the Del Vikings.

About this copy: This copy of The Singing, Swinging Del Vikings Recording Session is an original 1957 U.S. mono pressing on the original black Mercury label.

The cover is VG+, with faint wear, mostly at the edges and corners.  There is a repaired 2″ seam split in the center of the bottom edge of the cover.

The disc is quite clean, and clearly has had little play.  Overall, it’s VG+, with a few sleeve scuffs and two faint inaudible hairlines on side 2.

A nice copy of an album that’s quite hard to find in playable condition.

Background: The Singing, Swinging Del Vikings Recording Session was the first album the Del Vikings recorded for Mercury.

Oddly, no singles were released from the album, which likely led to poor sales.

You can listen to the opening track, “The Big Beat,” here:
