Modern Delights

LP (Item 4605) Verve, 1960s — Condition: Very Good
Gatefold

Light mellow Verve-y instrumental orchestral stuff, featuring Don Costa's versions of contemporary pop stuff, like "Heroes & Villains", "All You Need Is Love", "Ode To Billie Jo". and "Valley of the Dolls". Not totally jazzy, but a nice package of soft groovy grooves, in a cool gatefold cover (with notes), and a great subdued easy feel throughout.  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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 50s. Very Good+
One of the greatest Jackie Gleason albums ever! The album has these warm lush orchestrations, with wordless vocals by "The Voices of Artie Malvin" wispily dreaming over it, hence the "Ooooo!" in the title. Tracks include "Thine Alone", "It's All Right With ... LP, Vinyl record album

Arthur Lyman

Polynesia
Life, 1965. Very Good+
Polynesia is a wonderful little set from Arthur Lyman – one that's got a swirling, hypnotic sound that's way better than the weak Hawaiian imitataions you might get on other Polynesian-titled records! If anything, Lyman's group is even more sensitive than before – using flute ... LP, Vinyl record album

Martin Denny

Versatile Martin Denny
Liberty, 1963. Very Good+
Martin Denny definitely lives up to the versatile in the title here – working through a whole host of different 50s and 60s easy tunes – played in ways that are much wider-ranging than usual! Some are percussive and slightly exotic, some have more strings and tinkling piano, and some ... LP, Vinyl record album

Reprise, 1966. Very Good+
Raunchy work from Duane Eddy – and quite late, too! The album's have a pretty weird sound – a bit trippier than some of Duane's earlier work, with more of a late 60s kind of edge. The Biggest Twang was produced by Lee Hazlewood and Roaring Twenties by Billy Strange – both of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Phase 4, 1970. Near Mint- Gatefold
Chacksfield groovy sweep works really well on Simon & Garfunkel & Jimmy Webb, with the right notes period sound library style, a smile inducing largeness in the arrangements, but still with the tighter melodic core of the material. Titles include "Homeward Bound", "Mrs ... LP, Vinyl record album

Henry Wolff & Nancy Hennings

Tibetan Bells II
Celestial Harmonies, 1981. Near Mint-
Tibetan bells – what else did you expect? Played by a couple of phonies, but still with a nice sound that's very good if you want to turn on and drop out. Titles include "Journey To End", "Skybells II", and "Astral Plane". Get celestial, baby! LP, Vinyl record album

Laurindo Almeida

Acapulco '22
Tower, Late 60s. Near Mint-
Excellent work from Laurindo – a truly wonderful album, played with small combo backing, which gives the set a jazzier feel than usual! Players include Jimmy Rowles on organ, Bob Cooper on tenor, Howard Roberts on guitar, and Shelly Manne, Milt Holland, and Chico Guerro on percussion – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Hugo Montenegro

Colours Of Love
RCA, 1970. Sealed
Before he started getting funky with the moog, Hugo Montenegro was doing some very groovy stuff with large vocal arrangements. This album's one of his most perfectly realized in that vein, and features some great tracks that rework hip late 60s pop tracks into spacey vocal numbers sung by a mixed ... LP, Vinyl record album

Brian Auger's Oblivion Express

Reinforcements
RCA, 1975. Very Good+ Gatefold
A great later sleeper from Brian Auger – a record that's much deeper and more soulful than some of his earlier work – and done in a soaring style that's really great! Alex Lighterwood sings as much as Auger plays the keys here, but that's ok with us – because he fuses his voice ... LP, Vinyl record album

Cannonball Adderley

Inside Straight
Fantasy, 1973. Very Good+ Gatefold
One of Cannonball Adderley's late funky sessions for Fantasy – and a record that still features some mighty heavy production from David Axelrod! The album's got that core groove that Axe and Cannon first crafted together at Capitol in the 60s – but the sound here has some definite 70s ... LP, Vinyl record album
