Highly Sought-After Collector's Dream On Vinyl LP!
1963 Classic Soul Album Produced By Sam Cooke!
Back On Vinyl After Nearly 60 Years!

This item not eligible for any further discount offers!

Mel Carter's 1963 debut album was released on Sam Cooke's SAR Records/Derby label. Carter performed "When A Boy Falls In Love" on Dick Clark's American Bandstand, the song spent 10 weeks on the pop chart and the album was originally awarded 4-stars by Billboard. Produced by Sam Cooke and J.W. Alexander, collectors have sought after When a Boy Falls in Love since its initial release in 1963. R&B scholar Bill Dahl contributed liner notes to the otherwise faithfully restored original package.

This rare album fetches at least $350 in mint condition. Its contents are the epitome of love songs, all eloquently performed by Mel Carter, Mr. Velvety Tenor.
-Andrew Hamilton,, 4/5 stars
