MG-20424: Plays Pretty For The People / Sil Austin

[Front Cover] Label Type : red Mercury type A
Matrix Number : SIDE-A MG 20424A M2    FF
SIDE-B MG 20424B M2    FF



Comments

Equivalent release: Mercury SR-60096 (stereo).

2nd issue maybe in the middle 1960s.

Inside The Groove

Balladier Sil Austin's mellow tunes backed up with strings

Personal Impression (and brief notes)

His mellow tenor voice in these ballad tunes are fine, while his honkin' blow, heard on earlier LPs, are much much better. But personally I don't like such luxurious arrangements with strings :-P

Strictly Personal Rating (to what extent I could enjoy this album)

5 out of 10
