Moon River/Make It Easy On Yourself

7-inch (Item 22743) Vee Jay, 1970 — Condition: Very Good+
Out Of Stock

7-inch, Vinyl record

✈
Although Jerry Butler got his start singing some of Curtis Mayfield's early work, the geniuses at Vee Jay had the sharp idea of shopping for a few songs in New York, and they managed to come up with these two gems, both of which are classics from Jerry's second wave of hits! Believe it or not, "Moon River" was the first pop version ever recorded (according to Mancini himself), and it's delivered here perfectly with fab Riley Hampton arrangements. The flipside features original Bacharach arrangements, and Jerry's rendition will show you how much Scott Walker stole from him!  © 1996-2023, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.
