SR-60144: The Voice Is Rich / Buddy Rich and his Orchestra

[Front Cover] Label Type : white Mercury promotional?
Matrix Number : SIDE-A SR 60144 A MS1    FF
SIDE-B SR 60144 B MS1    FF



Comments

Equivalent release: Mercury MG-20461 (mono).

with original Mercury inner sleeve.

The label don't have “for promotional” or something printed on it, but it's actually white label, which is usually used for promotional use. This is the only case in my collection that the white label with no promo quotes. I will have to investigate further.

Inside The Groove

The other side of Buddy Rich - as a Jazz vocalist.

Personal Impression (and brief notes)

Buddy Rich's Mercury LPs are a kind of trilogy - one focuses on his voice, one features his drumming, and the last one goes straight with ordinary big-band ensemble. This LP features the first variation, Buddy Rich's own voice.

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

7 out of 10
