Something Cool (10 inch)

LP (Item 48083) Capitol, 1953 — Condition: Near Mint-
Also available
June Christy — Something Cool (Mono version – blue cover) ... LP 19.99
From its booze-soaked title cut, to its haunting selection of lonely ballads like "Midnight Sun" and "Stranger Called The Blues", this is one of the most fantastic vocal jazz albums of all time – and a record that we'd recommend instantly to anyone! June Christy has an incredibly icy tone on the record, filled with sorrow, regret, and loneliness – all of which are amplified even more deeply by Pete Rugolo's eerie, off-kilter arrangements. Titles include "Something Cool", "It Could Happen To You", "Lonely House", and "I Should Care". This is the original 10" mono recording with 7 tracks – and a green and white cover that has June with eyes closed.  © 1996-2024, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Mono purple label pressing. Cover has some surface wear, yellowing from age, a small scrape at the bottom right, and some stained spots at the spine and in back.)

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.

Nancy Wilson

Easy
Capitol, 1968. Very Good+
Killer 60s work from Nancy! Despite the "easy" in the title, this record's a perfect batch of pop soul tunes – arranged by Jimmy Jones with a breezy style that works perfectly for Nancy's voice. The record features her big hit "Face it Girl, It's Over", which was ... LP, Vinyl record album
Capitol, 1955. Very Good
Brilliant harmony vocals by the Four Freshman – an album with a title that perfectly sums up the Four Freshman contribution to 50s jazz, and their sublime way of re-casting vocals in their work!

Dick Haymes

Rain Or Shine
Capitol, Mid 50s. Very Good+
Sublime work from vocalist Dick Haymes – a singer who's best known for his early 40s work with big bands, but who reinvented himself tremendously during the 50s! Haymes is heard here in a spare, somber, very late nite style – somewhat boozy, and easily rivaling the work of Sinatra ... LP, Vinyl record album

Capitol, 1953. Near Mint-
An early slice of Dean Martin's work for Capitol Records – with a lot of tracks originally issued as a 10" LP, some very unusual material from the soundtrack to the film The Stooge.

Dolores Gray

Warm Brandy
Capitol, 1957. Very Good+
One of the few studio albums recorded by sultry singer Dolores Gray – a great late 50s set for Capitol Records, recorded with a moody, mellow tone!

Frank Sinatra

Rare Sinatra
Capitol (UK), 1950s. Very Good
A great UK record that brings together rare Frank Sinatra Capitol material from the 50s – sides that were on singles, but not on albums – and some that only showed up in weird sources! Titles include "Take A Chance", "The Song Is You", "Where Or When", ... LP, Vinyl record album

Blossom Dearie

May I Come In
Capitol, 1964. Near Mint-
A great album from Blossom Dearie – done with a soaring jazzy groove that makes it one of her best!
