El Jazz Y Donna Hightower (aka Soul Mate Talk)

LP (Item 106098) Columbia (Spain), 1975 — Condition: Near Mint-
Originally: 19.99
An unusual later session from vocalist Donna Hightower – a singer who started out in the postwar years, recording more R&B-tinged material for Capitol Records – but who's performing here on a unique European session that wasn't issued in the US! The group works with arrangements from the great Pedro Iturralde, who also has a number of tenor solos on the date – and the group is relatively large, but has a strong jazz component, thanks also to work from Manuel Gas on piano, both electric and acoustic, and organ!  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Early 80s issue. Cover has a small center split in the spine.)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor surface noise when played.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.
