Good Girl

LP (Item 474916) Soul Note (Italy), 1983 — Condition: Near Mint-
Just Sold Out!

LP, Vinyl record album

✈
❔

A laidback and hip set of jazz vocal tracks – featuring singer Kim Parker, with backing by a trio that includes Tommy Flanagan on piano, Jesper Lundgaard on bass, and Ed Thigpen on drums. Kim's got a sweet style that goes way past standards – into a mode that reaches the hipper side of jazz vocals, singers like Jackie Cain or Judy Roberts. The song selection is great too – with a number of under-recorded tunes, like "Bijou", "Talking", "It's Time To Emulate The Japanese", "Kvarteret Oron", and "The Good Little Girl".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has a cut corner.)

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.

Lorez Alexandria

Deep Roots
Argo, 1962. Very Good
One of the greatest records ever recorded by vocalist Lorez Alexandria – and a perfect summation of her rich talents as a singer! Backing is by a small Chicago trio that includes John Young on piano, Vernel Fournier on drums, and George Eskridge on bass – but the arrangements of the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ann Richards/Stan Kenton

Two Much
Capitol, Mid 50s. Very Good
Ann's a more lustily voiced singer than the sort that usually worked with Stan Kenton during the 50s – with a deep range in her delivery of a song, and a mode of singing that's a bit more unbridled than you'd expect for someone working under Stan. This set's a lot more Ann's album than it is ... LP, Vinyl record album

Louis Prima & Keely Smith

Las Vegas Prima Style
Capitol, Late 50s. Very Good
Wonderfully swinging material from the great Louis Prima! The set was caught live in Louis' main stomping grounds, Las Vegas – and backing is by a tightly matched version of Sam Butera & The Witnesses. 9 tracks in all, a couple of them medleys, including "Embraceable You/I Got It ...

Julie London

Calendar Girl
Liberty, 1956. Very Good Gatefold
One of Julie London's wildest albums – and one of her sexiest too! The record has Julie running through the calendar – singing a song a month, dedicated to January, February, March, and so on – a really great concept for a record like this, in ways that set the album apart from ... LP, Vinyl record album

Frank Sinatra

Strangers In The Night
Reprise, 1966. Very Good
A key turning point for Frank Sinatra in the 60s – a record that got him firmly back on the charts with a great new sound! The leadoff title cut really sets the pace for the whole thing – a slyly syncopated groover that works perfectly with Sinatra's aging vocals – originally ... LP, Vinyl record album

Julie London

Love On The Rocks
Liberty, 1963. Very Good+
A record that has Julie London already hitting that great "Nice Girls Don't Stay For Breakfast" mode of later years – the adult, informed approach that showed that the teasing nude of the 50s had turned into a pleasing woman of the 60s – capable of frank presentation of ... LP, Vinyl record album

David Frishberg

Live At Vine Street
Fantasy, 1984. Near Mint-
A charming little set from the great Dave Frishberg – easily one of the hippest singers and songwriters in jazz during the past few decades! The set's got Dave working solo – just singing along with his own piano accompaniment – in a whimsical way that matches the same sort of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sammy Davis Jr

Nat King Cole Songbook
Reprise, 1965. Very Good
A fitting set, in some way – as Sammy's rise in the 60s was equivalent to Nat's at the end of the 40s – but you've gotta admit, Sammy's vocals are quite quite different from those of Cole! Don't think of this one as a "tribute", so much as it's a collection of classic time-tes ... LP, Vinyl record album

Chuck Brown & The Soul Searchers

Bustin' Loose
Source, 1979. Very Good
Chuck Brown and his Soul Searchers group are past the arch jazzy funk of their days on Sussex Records – and they're heading more towards that ensemble sound that would drive the DC Go Go scene in the early 80s. The formula is heard to best effect on the big hit "Bustin Loose", an ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lorraine Ellison

Lorraine Ellison
Warner, 1974. Near Mint-
This great soul diva gets sort of a LA studio treatment with cool arrangements by Nick DeCaro and production by Ted Templeman. The sound has sort of that "spiritual soul for whiteys" feel, but it's still pretty great, and Lorraine Ellison has a voice that's good enough to cut through ... LP, Vinyl record album
