    Mickey and Sylvia "New Sounds" LP Vik 1102 (1957). Rock 'n Roll albums were not terribly popular in the early days, and this jewel was largely overlooked. Their classic single "Love Is Strange", of course, was a big hit, and the talented duo followed that with seven more that cracked Billboard's Hot 100, but not the Top 40. Mickey Baker did have a long and distinguished career as a session guitarist, and Sylvia Vanderpool had a brief solo stretch in the early '70s that produced a #3 Pop hit, "Pillow Talk". But looking at this album cover (what a presence!) and listening to the record (what a sound!) suggests this duo should have been much, much bigger! Ballads, blues/rock, and instrumentals -- superb harmony vocals and amazing guitar solos -- the duo had it together, and so does this album. It's pretty rare, and this copy has no peer, unless there's a sealed copy out there somewhere! There's a price sticker ($1.69!) on the back cover. Condition: MT 9/ MT 9. From the GRT Collection
