Magic Of Sarah Vaughan

LP (Item 478743) Mercury, Early 60s — Condition: Very Good+

Plenty of magic here – a record with a different sound than some of Sarah Vaughan's earlier work – but one that's still pretty great! The backings here bring in plenty of strings, and a bit of voices – going for a full feel that's a bit like some of the country soul albums of the period – although Sarah herself is far from country, and nicely poised throughout. A number of the tunes are standards, but they have a different sort of feel in this setting – and Vaughan's vocals float nicely over the top, tying the whole thing together on tunes that include "That Old Black Magic", "Carefree", "Separate Ways", "Mary Contrary", "I've Got The World On A String", "Love Is A Random Thing", and "Sweet Affection".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Mono black label pressing with deep groove.)

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.
