LP, Vinyl record album

(€10.71 || £7.64 || ¥1474) (approx.)
5.00 38

A full LP issue of singles that Billie Holiday recorded for Decca during the mid and late 40s – all small group sessions, with occasional added instrumentation on small string sections, or vocals. The sides are a nice counterpoint to Billie's work for Verve and Columbia – as the players differ nicely on many of the numbers, and a few tracks even feature a backing vocal group! Titles include "Lover Man", "Old Devil Called Love", "Porgy", "Girls Were Meant To Take Care Of Boys", "This Is Heaven To Me", "There Is No Greater Love", and "Solitude". (Heavy black label pressing with deep groove. Cover has some wear.)  © 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.

Recital By Billie Holiday
Clef, Early 50s. Good+
Not really a recital in the "live" sense, in that the album's a studio session – but a great batch of classic Verve sides by Billie Holiday! The care and quality of the record definitely demonstrate that the Verve years are some of Holiday's best – and for the session, Norman ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lover
Decca, 1950. Very Good+
One of Peggy Lee's greatest albums ever – a set of tracks recorded with the Gordon Jenkins chorus and orchestra, in a moody sound that would forever be remembered by the brilliant title track!

Decca, 1954. Near Mint- 5LPs
A really amazing set – a real standout, even in the career of Bing Crosby! The package was put together in 1954 – after Bing had been a solo act for over 20 years – and it features Crosby re-recording many of his classics, with cool small combo backing from the Buddy Cole trio on ...

Rockin' Chair Lady
Decca, Late 30s/1940s. Near Mint-
A collection of older singles by Mildred Bailey – recorded after her years with Paul Whiteman's band, in a laidback bluesy style that was kind of a 30s revival and sweetening of styles used during the big blues boom of the 20s. Mildred's got a heck of a voice, one that's undaunted even by ... LP, Vinyl record album

Blue Thumb, 1973. Very Good+ Gatefold
A mad bit of funk and jazz from Ben Sidran – much more tripped-out than his later work! Ben's got a great bunch of musicians on the album – with either Tony Williams or "funky drummer" Clyde Stubblefield on drums, and Phil Upchurch on bass, laying down a nice dark groove on ...

Julie Is Her Name
Liberty, Late 50s. Very Good
A landmark album in 50s vocal jazz – spare, moody, and evocative tunes from Julie London – sung in a stripped-down setting that few other singers would dare at the time! The sound of the set is as sexy as the cover – intimate, personal, and breathily sung in a mode that comes ... LP, Vinyl record album

Loneliest Girl In Town
Chess, 1960. Very Good-
The only album ever recorded by Little Miss Cornshucks – something of an enigma in the 50s R&B scene, as she was a singer who had this down-home look, name, and stage style – but who sang in a sophisticated bluesy style that sounded a lot like Esther Phillips or Etta James at their ...

Harmony, 1961. Very Good
An overlooked gem from Carmen – one of her few albums for Columbia from the 60s, and a wonderfully swinging small group session that's got a much more relaxed feel than some of her earlier sets! The album's ostensibly a tribute to Billie Holiday – but it's taken in a way that's ... LP, Vinyl record album
