A beautiful red vinyl Japanese pressing of the withdrawn 1968 live album by Peggy Lee, 2 Shows Nightly.

This item has been sold.


Offered for sale is an original Japanese pressing of Peggy Lee’s withdrawn 1968 live album, Two Shows Nightly, pressed on “Everclean” red vinyl and including the original obi.

About this copy: The copy of Two Shows Nightly is an original Japanese pressing, which was probably limited in production to a couple of hundred copies at most, pressed on beautiful red “Everclean” vinyl, and including the original obi.

The red vinyl record is M-, with just one minor scuff on side one from being removed from the inner sleeve.

The cover is VG+ with no wear but a couple of bent corners.  The obi is also VG+, having a few wrinkles.  The original reorder tag, known as a “hojyuhyo”, is present.  The original paper envelope inner sleeve and lyric insert are included; they are both M-.

This is the only copy of this ultra rare LP we have ever seen.

Background: Peggy Lee’s 1968 live album, Two Shows Nightly, is one of those record rarities that many have heard of, but few have actually seen.  Also known as 2 Shows Nightly (the cover prints the titles both ways), this LP, recorded at New York’s Copacabana, was withdrawn almost immediately after its release in late 1968.

We have seen pressings of the LP from the United States, Australia and Japan, and as far as we know, all were removed from circulation shortly after release, reportedly at Peggy Lee’s request.  On the rare occasions when copies turn up for sale, they are almost always promotional copies, as hardly any stock copies reached store shelves in any country.

Various reasons have been given for the record being withdrawn, ranging from legal issues to Miss Lee reportedly being unhappy with her performance.
