Who has two thumbs and won the auction for that test pressing? THIS GUY.
Thanks, @MLutthans !
I always thought it was because of the lawsuit from Capitol over "Swing Along With Me" to where the title was changed to "Sinatra Swings" and didn't want another lawsuit from Capitol. The title is too similar to 'Come Fly With Me".
I have it too with the blue and green "serious Frank" deep grooved label in both mono and stereo plus three mint white label promos.
Of all...ALL of Sinatra's LP's that's one of the least played albums in my collection next to The World We Knew, Cycles and some of the Columbia's. I need to give it another listen.
I was so excited to hear this rare test pressing of All Alone. Imagine my surprise when I put it on and I hear “Goody Goody.” I flip it over and it’s “Tangerine.”
Does the Test pressing sound any better than any of the other sources we've heard from Sinatra & Swingin' Brass ?????
You can either enjoy a rare misprinted test pressing or return it for being "not as advertised".
Bummer, but at least its a Sinatra album!
I don't think it's misprinted, this test pressing just got put in the wrong test pressing sleeve.
The label is totally blank. The seller claimed to have listened to it and that it sounded great. I don’t know how they didn’t notice that the songs all seemed to have different titles than what was written on the sleeve.
Also, it sounds crappy. It has numerous surface marks.
Besides the wrong record, this alone is reason to send it back.
Interesting that there was an ad in the Oct 6 1962 Billboard for All Alone
Yet they were still in the test pressing stage on Oct 9 1962
You have every right to return it. It all depends on what your collector mind feels.
I already got my refund. It’s all good. I’m just mad because I can’t find a really nice, quiet sounding copy of All Alone.
CBackley, neither can I. My one time I did find one, playable but no better.
I finally got one! Nice playing stereo copy. What a beautiful album. And the cover art is great on an LP jacket.
