Description

Offered for sale is an original U.S. stereo pressing of The Touch of Your Lips by Mel Torme, pressed on yellow and red multicolor vinyl.

Mono copies of this album were black vinyl, and most stereo copies were all yellow.  This one is a mixture of yellow and red.

About this copy: This copy of The Touch of Your Lips is an original 1961 stereo pressing on the Venise label.

The cover is VG, with light ring wear and slight wear at the edges and corners.

The colored vinyl disc is visually M-, with a number of spindle marks on the label.  It plays with slight surface noise, as Venise Records was a budget label that didn’t use the highest quality vinyl.

A nice-looking copy of a pretty good LP.

Background: Released in 1961, The Touch of Your Lips was a reissue of the 1958 LP Prelude to a Kiss.

Allmusic.com gave the album a 3 star review:

Originally issued in 1958, Prelude to a Kiss was a concept album built around a brief fling between our hero Mel Tormé and a woman whose voice is heard in short dialogue segments preceding each song. …Tormé is in possibly the best voice of his career, effortlessly breezy and refined (a tone which suits the theme perfectly).
