Dear To My Heart

LP (Item 452850) Trend, 1987 — Condition: Near Mint-

An obscure 80s session from the great Lorez Alexandria – and a record that beautifully shows how alive her style was in these later years! The album was recorded with full group backings from the band of saxophonist Gordon Brisker – in a style that's slightly fuller than some of her mellower trio sides from the decade, and which further emphasizes the range and swinging power of her voice. Lorez sings things sweet and warmly – but never in a way that's too mellow, nor too "stock" – always fitting her phrasings to the changing modes of the tunes, and sliding in perfectly alongside the instrumentation of the group. Titles include "Yellow Days", "Without A Friend", "When The Sun Comes Out", "Zanzibar", "Why Was I Born", "Speak Low", "As Long As I Live", and "Where Have You Been".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has notes in pen on back.)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor 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.
