Something Cool (2x7")

7-inch (Item 357036) Capitol, 1953 — Condition: Very Good
2x7" Gatefold (pic cover)

From its booze-soaked title cut, to its haunting selection of lonely ballads like "Midnight Sun" and "Stranger Called The Blues", this is one of the most fantastic vocal jazz albums of all time – and a record that we'd recommend instantly to anyone! June Christy has an incredibly icy tone on the record, filled with sorrow, regret, and loneliness – all of which are amplified even more deeply by Pete Rugolo's eerie, off-kilter arrangements. A classic all the way through – with tracks that include "Something Cool", "Midnight Sun", "Lonely House", and "I'll Take Romance".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(NOTE – Only includes Sides 2 and 3. Sleeve is in great shape however.)

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.

Pete Rugolo conducted these lush orchestrations for this classic June Christy record. This EP contains the tracks "Day Dream", "Sing Something Simple", "The Wind", and "This Year's Kisses". Christy's presentation is beautifully poignant. 7-inch, Vinyl record

The Reflections were a great lost soul group who cut one album for Capitol, plus a handful of singles. This nice one from 1975 features 2 strong cuts by the band – both with arrangements by Bert De Coteaux. "Three Steps" is a midtempo number, written by JR Bailey – and the ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
