Offered for sale is a still sealed U.S. stereo pressing of Breakout, the only album from singer-songwriter Lori Burton.

About this copy: This copy of Breakout is a 1967 U.S. stereo pressing on the red Mercury label.

As the album is still sealed, the record is presumably new and unplayed.

The wrap is largely intact, but has small tears at all four corners, a large piece missing from the back near the top and a small break at the mouth.  There is a punch hole in the upper right hand corner of the front cover.

A nice copy of a rare (and very good) mid-1960s pop LP.

Background: Lori Burton was best known as a songwriter, as she wrote hits for the Young Rascals, Lulu, Patti LaBelle and the Royal Guardsmen.

She recorded a few singles under the name The Whyte Boots, and a single LP under her own name.  The album, Breakout, did not chart.

Allmusic.com gave Breakout a three star review:

Lori Burton’s rare 1960s album is decent pop/blue-eyed soul, though it might be more promise than fulfillment. She has a very good earthy voice, delivering both cool sensual low growling and impassioned rasp at the most climactic points. The songs are a mixture of soul and densely produced New York mid-’60s pop/rock, and while they’re OK, there isn’t that obvious hitbound tune. Indeed, sometimes the sources or models are pretty apparent. “Since I Lost Your Lovin'” is the closest female impersonation of the Righteous Brothers you’ll come across, and “Bye Bye Charlie” does the same to early Neil Diamond, though Burton actually brings a more vibrant, emotional vocal quality to her vocals than Diamond did on such material.
