Stay Awhile/I Only Want To Be With You

LP (Item 32708) Philips, Late 60s — Condition: Very Good

Fantastic early soul from Dusty Springfield – material recorded in England, but done with a style that's every bit as warmly wonderful as her later American sessions in the south! Even before hitting Memphis or Muscle Shoals, Springfield brings a sense of soul to her music that most of her other 60s Brit pop contemporaries never seemed to reach – and in a style that's not copycat, either – which is a big thing, given how many others in London were just re-recording American soul at the time. Dusty soars at the right moments, dips at others – and the production and presentation of her voice is perfect – on tunes that include the originals "I Only Want To Be With You" and "Stay Awhile" – plus great reworkings of "Mama Said", "Will You Love Me Tomorrow", "When The Lovelight Starts Shining Thru His Eyes", "Anyone Who Had A Heart", and "Everyday I Have To Cry".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Stereo pressing with deep groove. Cover has some wear and a mostly split bottom seam.)

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.

Pastel Blues
Philips, 1965. Near Mint-
Wonderful stuff from Nina Simone – working here still with one foot in the jazzier style of early days, but with haunting elements of the later progressive style to come! The "pastel" in the title shouldn't imply any sort of softness on Nina's part, because if anything, she's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Nina Simone

I Put A Spell On You
Philips, 1964. Very Good-
Captivating work by Nina – working here in that unique crossover style she was using in the mid 60s – a blend of jazz and soul arrangements that were perfect for her intimate folksy style. The album's one of her first few for Philips, and it really has her opening things up a bit ... LP, Vinyl record album
Philips, Early 60s. Near Mint-
One of the great records made by the cool French jazzy vocal group that included Ward Swingle and Christine LeGrand, and which did stuff that was much more straightforwardly jazzy than the semi-classical work of the Swingle Singers. This LP's got them backed by Jerome Richardson and his quartet, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jackie & Roy

Sing Baby Sing
Storyville, Mid 50s. Very Good+
One of the greatest albums ever cut by Jackie and Roy! This one captures them in the early days – right after they'd left Charlie Ventura, and were beginning to sing and pen some fantastic little jazz ditties on their own. The album features the recorded debut of Tommy Wolf, who would ... LP, Vinyl record album

Unsubmissive Blues
Bola, 1980. Near Mint-
The righteous poetess runs through a set of her work from the late 70's – like "Brooding", "The Red Pepper Poet", and "For the Brave Young Students in Soweto" – and she's backed by a group that includes Bern Nix on guitar and Denardo Coleman on drums (just ... LP, Vinyl record album
Federal, Late 50s. Near Mint-

Frank Sinatra

Swing Along With Me
Reprise, 1961. Very Good+
This was Sinatra's first swing record for Reprise and his third collaboration with Billy May who arranged and conducted this 1961 recording. It features some standards from the likes of Rodgers & Hart ("Have You Met Miss Jones?") and George & Ira Gershwin ("Love Walked ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dinah Washington

Dinah '62
Roulette, 1962. Very Good+
Fantastic work from Dinah Washington – a singer who's really hitting her stride here during her years for Roulette Records – with a vibe that's maybe her most mature, most sophisticated to date! Washington still has currents of her bluesy roots in her approach, but she's also moving ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lorez Alexandria

For Swingers Only
Argo, 1963. Near Mint-
One of the greatest albums ever from Lorez Alexandria – an ultra-hip singer who recorded for Impulse and King, but who sounds especially wonderful on this rare date for Chess Records! The album's got a groove that definitely lives up to its title – a jazzy, bouncy sort of rhythm that's ... LP, Vinyl record album
