Snowbound

LP (Item 25425) Roulette, Early 60s — Condition: Very Good+

Beautiful later work from Sarah! Although it's easy to think that she "sold out" by making albums like this for Roulette – with a larger backing than before, and more of a pop feel – these albums are also incredible, and feature a sophisticated sense of interpretation we never expected from her earlier work. Case in point is the fantastic title track, "Snowbound", still one of Sarah's most compelling tunes. The whole album's fantastic, though, and includes many wonderful cuts like "What's Good About Goodbye", "Blah, Blah, Blah", and "Glad To Be Unhappy" – all with a wonderfully mature, slightly boozy sound.  © 1996-2019, 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.
