Hello Tiger!

LP (Item 33552) MGM, 1959 — Condition: Very Good

Sultry vocals from Sallie Blair – one of the hipper singers of her generation, and an artist with a sound that's unlike anyone else we can think of! Blair's a bit bluesy, a bit soulful, but ultimately a jazz singer at heart – and her already-cool style gets some sweet extra help on this session from Neal Hefti, who brings a great sense of punch to his arrangements – almost a Basie bounce at points, but with some Henry Mancini touches too – especially in the album's great use of electric guitar and Latin percussion. Most numbers have a slinky, sexy sort of groove – and titles include "That Old Black Magic", "Witchcraft", "Whatever Lola Wants", "Doncha Go Way Mad", "Everything I Have Is Yours", "Early Winter", and "I'm Through With Love".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.
