Lana Cantrell - Lana! [1968]

VS-88006



* New Remaster - April 2014


1968 / RCA / LSP-4026
Lana Cantrell delivers some stirring standards from the late sixties with suitable Lounge oomph and Shirley Bassey Pow! I particularly never tire of her version of "For Me" and her tender "Workin' On A Groovy Thing", but all songs point Lana! towards great album status.

Dear Vinyl Shipwreck,

I just do not know where you get these great albums from, I haven't even heard of this artist before either.

Also your shares are of the best quality.

Many thanks

her singing is reminisent of a cross between Liza Minelli & Gracie Slick. But, she's out of key, ever so slightly, ever so often. i'm keepin' it. the musicianship on this album is great. thanx again, Ship

I really have to thank you for this one! I just thought the cover looks great so I gave it a try and I completely fell in love with this record! It's just wonderful and made me check ebay for more ... now I bought three more of her records, waiting for them to be shipped oversea to Berlin, Germany, where I can't wait to hear them! THANKS!

I was looking through Jean Thomas's session log books and found all the songs for this album. She did the back-up vocals. Unfortunately she and I (her biographer) don't have these so if anyone can oblige she would be delighted.

Lana Cantrell-Lana...Nice sounding rip. Not a complaint but a wish...scans of the albums front and back would make your "new" site even more awesome than it is. Arc Soft Scan & Stitch is very simple & quick to use.
Anyway, thank you for this very nice sounding rip. Really appreciated.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH!! Excellent quality for an great album from 60s, my favorite decade, I love Lana Cantrell and i love her powerful and magic voice, I would wish to marry with her, I have the album "Lana" on vinyl as new but I prefer save it and not using it so much because thanks to you i will enjoy her music all the time with the excellent quality that you offer, regards from Peru.
