LP (Item 19900) Atlantic, 1970 — Condition: Very Good+

A unique moment from the legendary Jimmy Scott – a one-off album cut for Atlantic Records – recorded after his initial 50s fame, and decades before he'd finally get his due, much later in his life! The album's got a style that's a bit more mature than Scott's initial sides – a bit more grown up in approach, even though Jimmy's still got that really unique light tone to his vocals – and arranged by Arif Mardin and William Fischer in a hip blend of jazz and strings – with a slow-moving vibe that's completely mesmerizing. The core instrumentation is by a group that includes Junior Mance on piano, Billy Butler on guitar, and Ron Carter on bass – and titles include "Our Day Will Come", "I Wish I Knew", "This Love Of Mine", and a very moody version of "Exodus".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Red & green label Broadway pressing.)

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight 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.

Bobby Darin

If I Were A Carpenter
Atlantic, 1966. Near Mint-
What a great album – and a real departure for Darin! Bobby D had mostly been a swinging schmaltzy singer up until this one – but his discovery of Tim Hardin, which seemed to coincide with a whole new feeling of mortality in Darin's work, catapulted the singer into a whole new era. ...

Mose Allison

Western Man
Atlantic, 1971. Near Mint-
An amazing record by Mose Allison – with some good funky tracks! The real key here is the fact that Mose plays electric piano and is working in a hip trio with Billy Cobham playing some funky and soulful drums! We don't know what kind of piano Mose is using, but on the tracks where he's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Carmen McRae

Portrait Of Carmen
Atlantic, 1967. Very Good
An excellent album from Carmen McRae – one of her hippest records ever, and a great set of vocal gems that often gets overlooked! Arrangements are by Benny Carter, Shorty Rogers, and Oliver Nelson – and the album's got a swinging groovy style that pushes Carmen past her straighter jazz ... LP, Vinyl record album

Chris Connor & Maynard Ferguson

Double Exposure
Atlantic, 1960. Very Good+
One of Chris Connor's standout albums for Atlantic Records – and a session that actually makes us really appreciate the presence of Maynard Ferguson! The album's got a bit more punch than some of Chris' other records for the label, and is a nice shift in mood after a series of sad, dreamy, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Mel Torme

Songs Of New York
Atlantic, Early 60s. Near Mint-
One of Mel's best non-Bethlehem albums, and a record that's as much a loving tribute to New York as any you'll ever buy! Kind of funny, too, because in Mel's California Suite, there's all this stuff about how lousy New York is – but by the time of this early 60s recording, Mel's clearly ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lurlean Hunter

Blue & Sentimental
Atlantic, 1960. Very Good+
Probably the best-ever album by this obscure bluesy singer from Chicago! Jimmy Giuffre handled the arrangements, and the record has a bit more polish than some of her other albums. The tracks feature some very nice jazzy arrangements – with Jim Hall on guitar, Jimmy Jones on piano, and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Carmen McRae

For Once In My Life
Atlantic, 1967. Very Good
Carmen McRae gets some very groovy backing here from British maestro Johnny Keating – who helps her find a whole new sound through his wonderful arrangements on the set! The overall sound is relatively mellow, but still pretty great – all adult, and filled with unusual instrumental ... LP, Vinyl record album

Carol Stevens with Phil Moore

That Satin Doll
Atlantic, 1957. Very Good
Quite an unusual record from singer Carol Stevens – a singer who often vocalizes wordlessly, in an eerie, haunting way that's really compelling! Carol's got a breathy voice, and if she was singing the words, she'd no doubt come off as a bit of a sexpot – but here, working with ... LP, Vinyl record album
Atlantic, Early 60s. Good+
A really classic set from vocalist Chris Connor – and one that's summed up perfectly in the "Sad Cafe" in the title! The album's got that blue, melancholy style that always worked best for Chris – a mode that's never too cool, but which has this laidback, almost ethereal ... LP, Vinyl record album

Chris Connor

This Is Chris
Bethlehem, Mid 50s. Very Good
Beautifully icy vocals from the amazing Chris Connor – the kind of record that set a new standard for vocal jazz back in the 50s! The session's a small group one – with Chris singing intimately alongside backing from Herbie Mann on flute and tenor, Kai Winding and JJ Johnson on ... LP, Vinyl record album
