Once Over Lightly

LP (Item 407028) Columbia, Mid 50s — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album

4.50 38

Jo Stafford guests with Art Van Damme's quintet on this album, keeping things nice and mellow to match the group's icy sound. The set's about as groovy as you can expect from an accordian player, in Van Damme's trademark jazzy style, with haunting breathy instrumentation, and a sound that's incredibly eerie. Titles include "Almost Like Being In Love", "But Not For Me", "Autumn Leaves", "The Lady IS A Tramp", "One For My Baby", "A Foggy Day", and "My Old Flame". (Original 6 eye pressing with deep groove. Cover has a split bottom seam.)  © 1996-2015, Dusty Groove, Inc.

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.

Used Vinyl Grades

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, please note that all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:

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.

Don't Let Go
Blue Thumb, 1974. Near Mint-
Tight funky jazz from vocalist Ben Sidran – still very much in his best early mode, and playing with a really raw sound overall! Ben's vocals are in that down-home Mose Allison mode, but the real charm is the music – which features funky drums by Clyde Stubblefield, the man responsible ... LP, Vinyl record album
