Musical Seance

LP (Item 12654) Philips, 1960s — Condition: Very Good
Gatefold

Spooky stuff! Pianist/spiritualist Rosemary Brown communicated with a number of the great dead composers – like Liszt, Debussy, Schumann, Chopin, and Beethoven – and they all gave her scores to works that were not known to the rest of the world of the living. Rosemary and pianist Peter Katin play the pieces, and if you know anything about dead composers, you'll be pretty darn spooked out!  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Includes the booklet! Cover has a split top seam.)

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.

Juliette Greco

Complainte Amoureuse
Philips (France), Late 60s. Very Good
Nice late 60's session by Juliette Greco, featuring the sexy French singer backed by two different orchestras – those of Alain Goraguer and Francois Rauber. The LP's got a nice mix of material, including a lot of songs we've never heard of, and which seem to be exclusive to this LP. Tracks ... LP, Vinyl record album

Laurindo Almeida

Ole! Bossa Nova
Capitol, 1963. Very Good+
Classic pop bossa material from the Capitol scene, featuring a host of groovy jazz players backing up the breezy guitar of Laurindo Almeida. Although the album's not totally authentic bossa material, it does have a nice swing to it, and is easily as pleasant as some of the Verve sides from the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Cesana Strings

Sheer Ecstasy
Warner, 1960. Very Good+
The subtitle for this says "The Luxuriously Slow Moods of...", and it's right! Despite a racy nude on the cover, reclining on a cool chair and smelling a flower, this music is more sleepy than sexy. Still, it's got the rich Cesana sound to it, with banks of strings banking nicely around ... LP, Vinyl record album
Capitol, 1969. Very Good+
A record that's definitely after our own heart – in case you couldn't tell from the title! The set has Jackie Gleason expanding his bag a bit for the late 60s – moving from the easy sound to the "Now Sound" – with the help of some cool electric sitar, pictured on the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Marty Gold

Sounds Unlimited
RCA, 1963. Very Good+
Soaring sounds from RCA maestro Marty Gold – maybe not the totally unlimited record you might expect from the title, but definitely a key 60s entry in the genre of bachelor pad hi fi records! There's a fair bit of horns in the orchestrations, with solos by Don Butterfield, Joe Wilder, Phil ... LP, Vinyl record album

Burt Bacharach

Woman
A&M, 1979. Very Good+
An ambitious album by Burt Bacharach – recorded with the Houston Symphony Orchestra, but done straight in a four hour session – which gives the set a sense of liveness and spontaneity that's quite fresh, and which escapes some of the 70s studio overindulgence of the time! Most tracks ... LP, Vinyl record album
RCA, 1956. Very Good+
A pre-exotica relic – cut just a year or two before bachelor pad music really broke big, and a very important album in helping get the whole thing started! The record's got a more serious feel than you might think – as pop classical conductor Morton Gould put together this mix of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Command, 1967. Near Mint- Gatefold
An incredible little set by Dick Hyman – as light and lovely as his other records are groovy – and done in a way that mixes Dick's breezy work on piano with a sweet set of woodwinds in the background! The sound's not exactly bossa, but it draws plenty of inspiration from the sound of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Burt Bacharach

Reach Out
A&M, 1967. Very Good+
Fantastic! We love Burt Bacharach in so many ways that it's easy to forget the genius of these early A&M sides – but going back to them is always a treat, and it's wonderful to hear the way that Burt lays down his own work when given the chance! You know the tracks – "House ... LP, Vinyl record album

Soulful Strings

Paint It Black
Cadet, 1966. Very Good
One of the better albums by this great Chicago soul studio group – but all of them are pretty nice! The great Richard Evans is still at the head of The Strings, and the album features solo work by Charles Stepney and Lennie Druss, in a cool breezy Chess/Cadet soul jazz kind of mode. The ...
