Oliver! Ole!

LP (Item 3894) Columbia, Late 60s — Condition: Very Good+

Insanely wonderful Latin soul album recorded by Frank Owens that has the surprising (and goofy) bonus of being a Latiny rendition of the hit musical Oliver! Don't be put off by that cockney musical aspect of the source material, though – because the sound here is great New York Latin Soul, with all the criss crossing of styles and sounds that that phrase should mean! There's hard percussion, pounding piano, but most importantly, a great sense of humor that makes all the tracks shine, and which makes the whole album a great goofy good time. As the liner notes say, "Say, Oliver, your momma's calling you, baby!"  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has a cutout hole, a name in pen, and some aging on the back.)

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.
