Billie Holiday (MGM)

LP (Item 32188) MGM, 1959 — Condition: Very Good+

One of Billie's last sessions – recorded with beautiful large backings by Ray Ellis, and a heartbreaking tone that may not show Billie as strong technically as on some of her earlier albums, but which is pretty darn compelling nonetheless. Titles include "All The Way", "Don't Worry 'Bout Me", "Sometimes I'm Happy", "Deed I Do", and "All Of You".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Black label pressing. Cover has light wear and aging, half split top seam, and a bumped corner.)

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.

MGM, 1972. Very Good+
Was there a sexier 70s celebrity than Joey Heatherton?

MGM, Late 60s. Very Good+
A very very groovy little album of 60s pop vocals – thanks less to Gloria's talents, than to some of the great arrangers on the set! Gloria's got a voice that's a bit flat and a bit wispy, nothing really that fancy on its own – but she's working here with Luiz Henrique, Herb Bernstein, ... LP, Vinyl record album
