After Hours with Sarah Vaughan Columbia CL 660

41 posts in this topic

I'm happy just to have "Sarah Vaughan in Hi-Fi"  which has all the tracks where she's accompanied by Miles Davis or Freddy Webster.

So, there's a total of 60 cuts, right? Is there any place that has all of them?

I count 72 issued tracks on various Columbia issues in the Lord Disco, and half a dozen that remain unissued despite quite a number resurrected from the vaults for CD issues.

According to Lord some of those 72 tracks are not in the "Complete" box, not to speak of the still unissued .... :rolleyes: .... another missed opportunity. The major companies are so fixated on the "original album" ....

You have to get the Chronological Classics CD below for the 1949 Columbia tracks not in the box.

The Classics CDs of course do not have the alternates issued later on the Legacy reissue

Is there a label with more hideous cover art than Chronological Classics?

Maybe, but they're instantly recognizable.

And they did (do, still?) good work. Their own work, no less!

Did they go further into Vaughan-Land than the one volume?

The one above was the last, there are three more covering the years from 1944, i.e. her first dates for Continental and all the Musicraft sides, to the early Columbias:

There are numerous CDs covering that part of her recording career, but dont ask me which one is the most "complete", by whatever standard. It's hard to find tracklists for all - like the one on Le Chant du Monde:

How's that for covers, TTK?

As am I, and blessedly so!

My mother and aunt visited the other day.  They arrived just as I was taking the baby to her room to change what was a demolished diaper.  I offered, but both turned down the opportunity to change her.  If being a grandparent means avoiding diaper duty, that's not a bad gig.  :D

Well, at least she doesn't look like she was recording in 1910!

Talking about cover pics and what the artist looks like, are they all actually real or have some been photoshopped in recent times, I wonder?

If you look at contemporary photographs you will see that earlier ones show she had a discernible gap between her two front teeth (a detail that sometimes helps to date the photographs)  - that no longer appeared in later photographs. Probably she had had dental surgery performed on her teeth at some time but other details of the pic on the 1944-1946 Classics CD, for example, do look like this one comes from the "gap" period. Strange ...

Just saw there was a box on another French label, United Archives, with 72 tracks:

So what are the missing 10 Columbia tracks? Are they studio (in which case this claim is false) or are they live (in which cse that's something I've never heard about), or is there maths off somewhere?

Take a look at the Tom Lord Discography. 8 studio tracks she recorded for Columbia remain unissued - they all we re-recorded at later sessions. Looks like the United Archives box is copied off the Columbia CD releases. Shame on them.

I didn't see the bonus material was from other labels. The ten tracks missing are studio tracks issued on 78's but never on "albums". Some examples:

If you wanna hear them, you need the Classics CDs. They have them all, except for the alternates from the sessions with Miles.

I'm listening now to The Real...Sarah Vaughan, which has 35 of those '50's recordings.  Some of the poppy stuff really is dreck; I don't blame Vaughan for being angry at the material.
