Alive were one of the hippest all-female combos of their time – and although they were marginalized in the womyn's music ghetto for most of their career, they've got a great sound that's been rediscovered over the years by crate-diggers and jazz dancers! This first album is a gem through and through – a hip batch of vocal jazz tracks done in a breezy 70s style! There's some echoes of the hip female jazz singers of the European scene of the 70s, but there's also a warmer Bay Area vibe too – that cool blend of modes that made that scene so great at the time, thanks to groups like Alive! Titles include "Yemaya, Sister Of The Fishes", "Spirit Healer", "City Life", "Rhiannon", and "Part Of Me/Changes".  © 1996-2015, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

A mad mad afternoon with the great Babs Gonzales – one of the hippest jazz singers ever!

Mercury, 1987. Very Good+
Later work from both Merrill & Evans – but recorded with an icy edge that comes off surprisingly well! Most tracks are standards, done in the mode of Merrill's 50s work for Mercury, with some of the touches of Evans' 80s orchestrations – and titles include "Summertime", ... LP, Vinyl record album

Philips, 1966. Near Mint-
An excellent set that has the vocal talents of the Swingle Singers backed by the sweet and mellow instrumentation of the Modern Jazz Quartet!
