MG-25060: Dinah Washington

[Front Cover] Label Type : black/gold Mercury
Matrix Number : SIDE-A MG25060A
SIDE-B MG25060B



Comments

paper sleeve type jacket - a true 1st issue.

Inside The Groove

A collection of Dinah Washington's early 78rpm releases, from 1946 thru 1950.

Personal Impression (and brief notes)

Dinah Washington had left so many tunes on Mercury label (and subsidiaries) starting from 1946 thru 1961. This 10-inch LP, a compilation of her several 78rpm releases, captures her earliest era.

Backed up with a steady orchestra, young Dinah amazingly sings in every tune, as we can hear from all her recordings.

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

10 out of 10
