All-Analog 180g Vinyl LP of Ella Fitzgerald's Let No Man Write My Epitaph Mastered from the Original Analog Tapes, Pressed at QRP, and Housed in Stoughton Gatefold Jacket

One of Ella Fitzgerald's finest recordings, 1960's Let No Man Write My Epitaph - which was a film of the same name that The First Lady of Song appeared in - finds the songstress produced by the great Norman Granz and accompanied by pianist Paul Smith on an excellent program of tunes from the Great American Songbook including sensitive takes on "I Cried for You," "Angel Eyes" and "My Melancholy Baby." The album hits at a depth of emotional understanding that critics often complained was missing in Ella's reading of jazz lyrics, and once again established her as one of the supreme interpreters of the Great American Songbook.

Seeking to offer definitive audiophile grade versions of some of the most historic and best jazz records ever recorded, Verve Label Group and Universal Music Enterprises' audiophile Acoustic Sounds vinyl reissue series utilizes the skills of top mastering engineers and the unsurpassed production craft of Quality Record Pressings.
