Earl Grant: Fly Me to the Moon (1963)

Decca DL-74454

This was a thrift shop find (99¢). The cover is in good shape, but the LP is worn, and it gets noisier closer to the label. I tried to chose quieter tracks for the sample tracks.

I don't love the organ in this context, but the band as a whole sounds good. According to wikipedia, Earl Grant had a top ten hit in 1958 with "The End," and this LP charted at #139, on what chart it doesn't specify. This LP is not on CD.

Associated equipment: Technics SL-7, Sonus SPM-4, Pro-Ject Phono Box S, harman/kardon CDR 2.
