We Need A Little Christmas

LP (Item 479637) Metromedia, Late 60s — Condition: Very Good+

A lovely little Christmas album – served up by The Golddiggers vocal group from the Dean Martin TV Show! As you might know from the show, the gals aren't the best singers in the world, but they've got a sweetly seductive way of putting over a tune in unison – a style that kind of cascades along nicely, especially when the backings have a groovy 60s feel. Arrangements are by Sid Feller and Van Alexander, both of whom really keep the charm of the show's sound – and the set has some pretty inventive arrangements, even of familiar tunes. Titles include "My Favorite Things", "And The Bells Ring", "Santa Claus Is Comin To Town", "The Christmas Song", "I Just Want You For Christmas", and "I Sing Noel". (Cover has a cut corner & light wear.)  © 1996-2018, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.
