Hometown, My Town

LP (Item 41053) Columbia, Early 60s — Condition: Very Good+

One of Tony's greatest full LPs, an extremely coherent effort that's tied together with a single theme – very unique for his career at the time! The "Hometown" element is a tribute to New York – and the album's a sophisticated suite of tracks set to jazz backings by Ralph Burns, filled with washes of color and emotion that go far beyond what you'd hear on a regular Tony Bennett album. Titles include "The Skyscraper Blues", "Penthouse Serenade", "All By Myself", "Love Is Here To Stay", and "The Party's Over".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Mono 6 eye pressing with deep groove. Cover has light wear and an ink stamp in 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.
