Sil Austin Plays Pretty For The People Again (Mercury LP SR 61126)

A big thank you to Oracle for kindly sending in this 1967 Sil Austin follow-up to his "Plays Pretty For The People" LP. Oracle used to run a very distinctive Lounge - Latin - Retro - Jazz - What the Heck blog called Portal of Groove which sadly seems to have disappeared from the blogosphere.

Once again Sil is in a romantic mood with settings varying from full on string accompaniment with choir to small group with vibes (like a laid back Earl Bostic.) I have no discographical details of these sessions so I can't comment on the accompanying musicians.

Ripped from vinyl at 320 kbps. No password.

Side A
1. I'm In The Mood For Love
2. The Lonely One
3. Cry Me A River
4. The Rose Tattoo
5. To Love Again

Side B
1. Harlem Nocturne
2. Broken Promises
3. Save The Last Dance For Me
4. On A Tropic Night
5. Oh Rose, My Rose
6. Good Night

Thank you Mr Oracle!

Thanks Anonymous, the number is right there on the front of the cover and I got it wrong. Too much wine and beer over the years, I'm afraid. Post header now corrected!
