You Better Believe Me

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

The Ramsey Lewis trio (with Young and Holt) backs up this sweet Chicago jazz singer in a nice set of soulful tracks recorded for Chess in the mid 60's. Nice laid back lounge jazz type of groove, with a good assortment of lesser-known tracks, and very sensitive accompaniment. Cuts include "Goodbye Lover, Hello Friend", "It Had Better Be Tonight", "You'd Better Believe Me", "Corcovado", and "Night Time".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Tan label Argo pressing with lozenage logo. Cover has light wear.)

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.

Red Rodney Returns
Argo, Late 50s. Good

French Cookin'
Argo, 1963. Near Mint-

Three Souls

Soul Sounds
Argo, 1965. Very Good-
Tight little organ/sax combo led by Chicago alto player Sonny Cox. The groove is tight and hot, like you might have heard in a lounge in this city in the early 60's (and still can on a good night, if you're lucky). Features a pre-Pharoahs/EWF Louis Satterfield on bass. A lost classic from the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Benny Golson

Free
Argo, 1962. Good+
Without a doubt, Benny Golson is one of the most underrated tenorists of his generation – a player with a tone and conception that's always tremendous – but which comes across especially well on this early 60s session for Argo Records! As you might guess from the title, things aren't ... LP, Vinyl record album
Argo, 1958. Near Mint-
Magical early work from Ahmad Jamal – a scintillating blend of piano, percussion, and bass – with a sound that was incredibly fresh at the time, and which still sounds pretty much so to our ears! The album crackles with imagination and rhythm – really hitting on all burners ... LP, Vinyl record album

Illinois Jacquet

Message
Argo, 1963. Very Good+
A really hard groover from Illinois Jacquet's later years on Chess – a solidly smoking session that features plenty of organ and guitar! There's a gutbuckety groove here that's a lot like some of Willis Jackson's best work on Prestige at the time – a style that's based around the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Oliver Nelson

Fantabulous
Argo, 1964. Near Mint-
A cool cooker from Oliver Nelson – one of the few 60s albums he cut as a leader with the same sense of soul and swing as his backings for other players! The sound here is right up there with Nelson's work with Jimmy Smith over at Verve – soaring, soulful arrangements that sparkle in ... LP, Vinyl record album
Argo, 1961. Very Good+
Not just a wonderful record for the music, but also for the classic cover image too – a photo of Ahmad Jamal's righteous night club The Alhambra – an Eastern-themed spot on Chicago's Michigan Ave, where Jamal made some incredible music for a few short years! Jamal was one of the few ... LP, Vinyl record album
Sony (Japan), 1970. Near Mint- 2LP
Four sides of noisy, funky, stretched-out playing from Miles Davis – recorded at the Fillmore West, but with an intensity that matches some of Miles' crazy electric recordings from Japan during the early 70s! The music is a powerful blast of music that stretches out over the double-length ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jimmy McGriff

Stump Juice
Groove Merchant, 1975. Very Good Gatefold
Massively funky – and one of Jimmy McGriff's best albums for the Groove Merchant label! The album's follows strongly on the mode of Jimmy's classic Worm album – also produced by Sonny Lester, issued slightly before on the Solid State label. The set's got that stripped-down, hard-n-funk ... LP, Vinyl record album
