Harry Carney, “With Strings”, Clef, MGC–640, Original 12”, Deep Groove LP, First Issue, 1955, SIGNED and inscribed by the great baritone saxophonist at the top left of the rear panel. Carney recorded rarely under his own name and this was his first album, a recording with strings, arranged by Ralph Burns, and produced by impresario Norman Granz for his Clef label. It features a wonderful design by David Stone Martin who once described his concept for the cover this way: “Harry Carney was a very strong instrumentalist. Thus the Roman soldier…the ‘strings’ are on the other side of the door”. Mild soil and ring wear to the rear panel, light rubbing and wear to the seams, else very good++, bright and clean; record surfaces have a very nice luster, lightly played, visually NM; the autograph and inscription are about near fine, with just a touch of skipping to Carney’s signature. The album itself is quite uncommon and very scarce signed. J1907
