About this Item

Not a book but a 10-inch, 33-1/3 rpm "Long Play Microgroove Unbreakable" vinyl LP record, Decca DL 5387, near-mint vinyl in a very-good-plus cardboard jacket which is split 2/3 of the way back along top edge. Features "Rockin' Chair," "Georgia On My Mind," "More Than You Know," "It's So Peaceful in the Country," "Lover Come Back to Me!", others. Fragment of original May Co. price tag remains to rear panel. A Coeur D'Alene Indian, Bailey started singing on the radio with Paul Whiteman's band in 1929, but left Whiteman over a salary dispute. In the mid-1930s, she and her third husband, Red Norvo, earned the nicknames "Mr. and Mrs. Swing." From 1936 to 1939 Norvo recorded for Brunswick (with Bailey as primary vocalist) and Bailey made her own recordings for Vocalion, often with Norvo's band. A large woman, Bailey suffered from diabetes and depression, and died at the age of 44, in 1951. Reduced from $35. Bookseller Inventory # 004739
