Offered for sale is an autographed U.S. stereo copy of Lesley Gore Sings All About Love by Lesley Gore.
This is the scarce second issue of the album that shows Lesley lying down in a field of grass.
Ms. Gore signed her name in permanent marker on the back cover. The date “October 3, 1971” is written in ballpoint pen on the back cover; this may be the date when the album was signed. It’s a beautiful signature.
About this copy: This copy of Lesley Gore Sings All About Love is a 1966 pressing on the Mercury Label.

A nice copy of a scarce Lesley Gore LP. This came from our own collection.
Background: Released in 1966, Lesley Gore Sings All About Love was the sixth album by Lesley Gore.
The album did not reach the U.S. album charts. The highest-charting single was “Young Love,” which peaked at #50 on the U.S. singles charts.
Lesley Gore Sings All About Love was her first album not to contain a sizable hit, and marked a sharp drop-off in quality from her previous three LPs. Shelby Singleton produced the record, with Nashville musicians like Buddy Harman, Hargus Robbins, and Jerry Kennedy providing the core of the session players. It didn’t sound at all country-influenced, though. It sounded kind of confused, with about half of the cuts bearing an obvious Motown influence (the Supremes in particular) and some of the rest filled out with oldies covers and pop standards.
