Later work by Cab – but proof that he was always one heck of a singer, even at this later date. Arrangements are by Dick Jacobs, and the orchestra is directed by Henry Jerome – and the tone of the tracks is more sombre and straight ahead than some of Cab's earlier, madder work. Tracks are all bluesy standards – and titles include "Blues In The Night", "One For My Baby", "Cry Me A River", "Blue Prelude", "Blues My Naughty Sweetie Gave To Me", and "Learnin The Blues". (Pink label pressing with deep groove. Cover has a half split top seam, some surface wear, and a mark from sticker removal.)  © 1996-2016, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good - (minus)

  • Vinyl may be dirty, and can lack a fair amount of luster.
  • Vinyl can have a number of marks, either in clusters or smaller amounts, but deeper.
  • This is the kind of record that you'd buy to play, but not because it looked that great. Still, the flaws should be mostly cosmetic, with nothing too deep that would ruin the overall record.
  • Examples include a record that has been kept for a while in a cover without the paper sleeve, or heavily played by a previous owner and has some marks across the surface. The record should play okay, though probably with surface noise.

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.

Capitol, Late 60s. Very Good+
Don't miss this one! For years, we passed this one by, thinking it an impure version of the great jazz duo Jackie & Roy. Now, though, we realize that it's one of their masterpieces, and takes their hip vocal sound into a new dimension, with cool L.A. production from the late 60's, and some ... LP, Vinyl record album

Impulse, 1963. Very Good+ Gatefold
A beautiful album of dark-hued vocals – sung by Johnny Hartman with a quality that's as smokey as the image of him with a cigarette on the cover! The album set a whole new standard for male vocal jazz in the 60s – and is a distillation and refinement of earlier ideas in music by Billy ... LP, Vinyl record album

I've Gotta Be Me
Reprise, Late 60s. Very Good
One of Sammy D's best albums of the late 60s – and a beautiful mix of modes that he explored on the Reprise label! The title track is Sammy's big hit "I've Gotta Be Me", but that tune's followed up with some nice groovers – like Sammy's versions of "My Personal ... LP, Vinyl record album
