Description

Offered for sale is a U.S. red vinyl stereo copy of Sings Days of Wine and Roses, Moon River and Other Academy Award Winners by Frank Sinatra.

Note: This album was not commercially released  on colored vinyl in the U.S., nor were any copies pressed on colored vinyl for promotional use.  This particular copy was likely pressed by a record company employee for their own use.  We are not aware of any other red vinyl copies of this LP; this one may be unique.

About this copy: This copy of Sings Days of Wine and Roses is a 1964 U.S. deep groove stereo pressing on the Reprise label.

The matrix numbers are:

Side one: o 30301 (1-J)  SMI
Side two: o 30302 (1-J)  SMI

This suggests that the record was pressed at Columbia Records’ Santa Maria, California pressing plant, which opened in 1964.

The cover is M- and retains most of the original shrink wrap.  There is a large piece missing on the back and very slight discoloration on the back in the lower left hand corner.

The original generic Reprise inner sleeve is included with no splits.

The red vinyl disc is VG and close to VG+ with a few light marks on each side, but no deep scratches.  It’s a fairly clean disc that has been well cared for.

A nice copy of a rare, and possibly unique, Frank Sinatra LP.

Background: Released in 1964, the awkwardly-titled Sings Days of Wine and Roses, Moon River and Other Academy Award Winners is the 33rd studio album by Frank Sinatra.

The album, consisting entirely of Academy Award-winning songs, reached #10 on the U.S. album chart.

Allmusic.com gave Sings Days of Wine and Roses, Moon River and Other Academy Award Winners a 3 star review:

Featuring a selection of Oscar-winning standards, ranging from 1934’s “The Continental” to 1962’s “Days of Wine and Roses,” Academy Award Winners is professional and stylish album, but it only yields a handful of true gems. That isn’t the fault of either Frank Sinatra or arranger/conductor Nelson Riddle. Although their performances aren’t quite as distinguished as their past collaborations, they are nevertheless highly enjoyable. Sinatra is charming and lively, even if he doesn’t demonstrate the full range of his technique on each track, while Riddle’s charts are light and entertaining.
