Sonny Burke 45s with Maynard Ferguson


SONNY BURKE AND HIS ORCHESTRA, CHA-CHA-CHA / PICK YOURSELF UP -- Decca 9-29706

Here's a great little 45 with Maynard that only came to light in 2005 when the great Sonny Burke Mambo Jambo CD was released. Until then, few of us knew that Maynard was on these tracks. Cha-Cha-Cha was recorded 8/30/54, and Pick Yourself Up was recorded 10/25/54. Great instrumental Mambo music!
COPY #1. This is the first copy of this rare little 45 I've ever had for sale on the website. This one has pink promotional labels. The labels each have a little dark rectangle where a price or ID sticker was removed. Otherwise, they're clean and nice. The vinyl is EX. This one is yours for $7.00.

SONNY BURKE AND HIS ORCHESTRA, "PHFFT" MAMBO / LONG HAIR MAMBO -- Decca 9-29318

Here's a great little 45 with Maynard that only came to light in 2005 when the great Sonny Burke Mambo Jambo CD was released. Until then, few of us knew that Maynard was on these tracks. Both "Phfft" Mambo and Long Hair Mambo were recorded 9/20/54. Great instrumental Mambo music! You can definitely hear MF in the high register in several places.
COPY #1. This is the first copy of this rare little 45 I've ever had for sale on the website. This one has pink promotional labels. The labels are super clean and nice, with the only issue being a neatly rubber-stamped name on one label. The vinyl is NMINT-. This one is yours for $9.00.

COPY #3. Wow! I can't believe I've found another one of these. This one is a pink label promo copy. The labels are super clean and nice, and the vinyl easily rates an EX++. A nice, solid copy, it's $8.00.
COPY #4. Yet another pink label promo copy. The labels are clean and nice except for a caatalog number written in ink on the reverse label. The vinyl is EX. For this one it's $2.00.
COPY #5. Here's a normal black label copy. The labels are clean and nice, like new, except for very tiny letters "DB" written on each label. I didn't even notice them until I scanned the labels very carefully just now prior to posting. The vinyl is VG+ to EX- and plays OK, but there is some background noise throughout. A decent copy, it's $5.00.
COPY #6. Here's a normal black label copy. The labels are clean and nice, like new. The vinyl is EX- and plays quite nicely, but there is some background noise in places. It's $5.00.
