Offered for sale is an original red and black vinyl stereo copy of Sarah Vaughan’s 1962 LP You’re Mine You.
Sarah Vaughan had a long and successful career as a jazz singer, but she occasionally dabbled in pop, and You’re Mine You is one such example of Vaughan working with an orchestra, in this case conducted by Quincy Jones.
As with most Quincy Jones-produced albums, the sound is first-rate and You’re Mine You has been reissued several times in recent years by various audiophile labels, as the album is not only a great listen, but it’s a great recording, too.
A few copies of the stereo first pressings of You’re Mine You were pressed on red vinyl.
This LP finds Sarah Vaughan backed by big-band and string arrangements from Quincy Jones that could easily have been used for a Frank Sinatra date. Vaughan’s voice is typically wondrous and … in top form on the more swinging numbers. In the repertoire are such tunes as “The Best Is Yet to Come,” “The Second Time Around” and “Baubles, Bangles and Beads.” More of a middle-of-the-road pop date than a creative jazz session (the personnel is not given), the set is not essential but should please those who love the sound of Vaughan’s remarkable voice.
About this copy: This copy of You’re Mine You is an original 1962 stereo copy, pressed on beautiful red vinyl, though this particular copy has black vinyl mixed in with the red, giving it a “splatter” effect. This likely happened when a red copy was pressed immediately after a black one and a bit of black vinyl remained in the extruder.
The cover is VG+, with writing on the back cover and a repaired 2″ split on the bottom edge of the cover.
The record is VG++, with only a few minor scuffs from the original paper sleeve. It’s very close to M-. It’s also a gorgeous example of colored vinyl.
A beautiful copy of a great (and great sounding!) record.
