MG-25140: Blazing Ballads / Dinah Washington

[Front Cover] Label Type : black/silver Mercury type B
Matrix Number : SIDE-A YMG 25140A MF    M    A
SIDE-B YMG 25140B MF    M    A



Comments

Although the matrix number says it's 1st press, the back cover indicates it isn't (the latest album listed on the back cover is MG-25175).

The back cover suffers from brown stains.

Inside The Groove

The popular side of Dinah Washington - it's also fantastic.

Personal Impression (and brief notes)

Whether she sings Jazz or Popular, whether she is backed up with jazzy ensemble or popular strings, Dinah is always Dinah. Her singing always moves us most.

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

8 out of 10
