Night Mood

LP (Item 366612) RCA, 1960 — Condition: Very Good

A great singer, and a real standout album that's sadly been lost beneath the shifting sands of time! Toni Harper's working here with arranger Marty Paich – in a mode that's jazzy, but with soulful undercurrents – in that sophisticatedly swinging style that made Paich one of the best vocal arrangers of the early 60s. Toni's got a voice that's deep, but lean – never too expressive, and with just the right sense of sadness to fit the mood of the album. Titles include "The Meaning Of The Blues", "My Ship", "Just Go", "Round Midnight", "Paradise", "Night After Night", and "Where Flamingos Fly".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Mono pressing with deep groove. Cover has a half split top seam, small split in the bottom seam, and some marker on back.)

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.

RCA, 1970. Near Mint-

Blue Starr
RCA, 1957. Very Good-
Plenty of blue tones in Kay Starr's music here – those sad-tinged sounds that made her a real standout in 50s pop, served up here with some slightly jazzier elements as well! The record's a nice contrast to some of Kay's more familiar hits – in that it still shows her singing strongly ... LP, Vinyl record album
