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.
(Rainbow 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.

Let Yourself Go
Decca, 1957. Very Good
One of Mark Murphy's first albums – quite different than his later work, but swinging and jazzy as he could always be!

Boy Meets Girl
Decca, 1957. Near Mint-
A real classic from Sammy Davis Jr & Carmen McRae!

Go Latin
Decca, 1966. Near Mint-

New Jazz, Early 60s. Very Good+
A really great record from singer Clea Bradford – a soulful talent of the 60s who hardly recorded much, but always knocked it out of the park!
