Nat King Cole — Christmas Song ... CD 3.99

Mel Torme may have written "The Christmas Song", but Nat King Cole owned it – thanks to a classic recording for Capitol that became one of the best-remembered Christmas chestnuts of the time! Nat's original 1961 recording is followed up here with an array of classic Holiday tunes – done in a similarly easy-going style that was every bit the best side of Nat's later years. Titles include "I Saw Three Ships", "O Holy Night", "The First Noel", "Away In A Manger", and "Silent Night".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Blue label Capitol reissue.)

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.
