You Better Believe Me

LP (Item 2491) Argo, 1965 — Condition: Very Good

A great set of soul jazz vocals from the Chicago scene – one of a few rare albums cut by singer Jean DuShon, who gets superb backing from the Ramsey Lewis trio! The group is great, and the style of the record allows for plenty of tight contributions from Eldee Young on bass and Red Holt on drums. The set's got a good assortment of lesser-known tracks, and very sensitive accompaniment – with titles that include "Goodbye Lover Hello Friend", "It Had Better Be Tonight", "You'd Better Believe Me", "Corcovado", and "Night Time".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Silver label Argo pressing. Cover has light wear, but is nice overall.)

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.

Great Day
Argo, 1963. Very Good+

Misty Night
Argo, 1960. Very Good-
Moody piano tracks from Chicago's soul jazz underground of the early 60s!

Getz/Gilberto

Impulse, 1961. Very Good- Gatefold
A key later album from alto saxophonist Benny Carter – one that has him at the helm of a largeish group, but playing with a nicely focused sort of groove!

Les McCann

McCanna
Pacific Jazz, 1964. Very Good
A great Latin groove from the mighty Les McCann – a smoking set that adds in extra percussion from Willie Correa – who gives the record a sound that's quite a change from the usual McCann groove!

Darius Brubeck

Chaplin's Back
Paramount, Early 70s. Near Mint- Gatefold
A weird one! – Dave Brubeck's son Darius plays music from Charlie Chaplin films like Modern Times, City Lights, and The Great Dictator. The sound's a bit hokey, but he does have a lot of hip bandmates helping him out, like Amos Garrett, Michael Brecker, and Perry Robinson. Amos Garrett ... LP, Vinyl record album

Stan Getz

Sweet Rain
Verve, 1967. Near Mint- Gatefold
One of Stan Getz's greatest records – no fooling!

Shadow Of Your Smile
Verve, 1965. Very Good+
One of Astrud Gilberto's greatest albums – and quite possibly our personal favorite!

The start of a legend – and the very first album by Sergio Mendes' Brasil 66 group, proudly brought to the world through the godlike talents of a young Herb Alpert!
