LP, Vinyl record album


4.80 12

One of the greatest musical film soundtracks of the 50s – a great little record based around the compositions of Cole Porter, and featuring vocals by Frank Sinatra, Bing Crosby, Louis Armstrong, and Grace Kelly! The film itself is a musical remake of The Philadelpha Story – one that updates the story a bit, and sets it in Newport at the time of the jazz festival. Louis Armstrong's music is plenty great, but the vocals are even better – and the film is especially noteworthy as an on-screen meeting between Sinatra and Crosby, who come nicely head to head on the tune "Well Did You Evah". This CD version expands the whole thing even more than previously – with spoken bits by Kelly, Crosby, and Sinatra, and a few bonus tracks as well. Titles include "True Love" by Bing Crosby & Grace Kelly, "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire" by Frank Sinatra & Celeste Holm, "Well Did You Evah" by Bing Crosby & Frank Sinatra, "Mind If I Make Love To You" by Frank Sinatra & Grace Kelly, "High Society Calypso" by Louis Armstrong, "Little One" by Bing Crosby & Louis Armstrong, and "Now You Has Jazz" by Bing Crosby & Louis Armstrong.

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.

Used Vinyl Grades

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, please note that all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:

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.

Hard to imagine that Julie London would ever have to ask anyone to make love to her – at least not when she looks as sexy as this on the cover!

Wonderful work from Peggy Lee's newly mature years on Capitol Records – a set that follows from some of the hipper arranging and songwriting styles she was working with at the end of the 60s!
