You Better Go Now

LP (Item 493429) Decca, Early 50s — Condition: Very Good-

An early album that compiles material that Jeri Southern recorded in her first few years for Decca Records – tunes done in the dreamy, romantic style that was one of Southern's key calling cards in the 50s! The style is never too sleepy, nor too commercial – and instead, Jeri's got a great way of putting over a moody late nite tune without resorting to common cliches. Backings are by Sy Oliver, Camarata, Sonny Burke, and others – but the album's got a nicely unified feel, thanks to Jeri's strong vocals in the lead. Torchy stuff, but in an uncommon way – and with titles that include "When I Fall In Love", "Give Me Time", "Something I Dreamed Last Night", "Remind Me", "That Ole Devil Called Love", and "What Good Am I Without You".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good - (minus)

  • Vinyl may be dirty, and can lack a fair amount of luster.
  • Vinyl can have a number of marks, either in clusters or smaller amounts, but deeper.
  • This is the kind of record that you'd buy to play, but not because it looked that great. Still, the flaws should be mostly cosmetic, with nothing too deep that would ruin the overall record.
  • Examples include a record that has been kept for a while in a cover without the paper sleeve, or heavily played by a previous owner and has some marks across the surface. The record should play okay, though probably with surface noise.

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.

Decca, Mid 60s. Very Good+
