Spooky Sound Of Mike Sharpe

LP (Item 505934) Liberty, Late 60s — Condition: Near Mint-

Titles include "Spook A Lou", "That's Life", "Spooky", and "Mellow Yellow".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Stereo pressing.)

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.

Sandy Nelson

Boogaloo Beat
Liberty, Late 60s. Very Good
Groovy stuff from Sandy Nelson – one of his best albums ever! Despite the title, this isn't exactly the Latin soul adventure you might think – but it is a nice batch of drum-heavy instrumentals, with a good soul boogaloo beat to them. The best tracks are the ones with "boogaloo&qu ... LP, Vinyl record album

Augie Colon

Chant of the Jungle
Liberty, Late 50s. Very Good+
Martin Denny's percussion player strikes out on his own with this tight LP of Latin rhythms. Flute's the lead solo instrument, and the whole thing swings a lot more than most Martin Denny albums – but with a groove that's a lot more Latin inflected, and with percussion that's much heavier. ... LP, Vinyl record album

Richard Marino+

Magic Beat!
Liberty/Premier, Early 60s. Very Good+ Gatefold
As the liner notes say, "The Magic Beat is not primitive or ritualistic. To the contrary, it emphasizes the more sophisticated and romantic aspects of rhythmic sorcery." We won't say more, except to tell you that tracks include "Fever", "Ziganette", "Lover" ... LP, Vinyl record album

Martin Denny

Exotic Love
Liberty, 1968. Very Good+
An overlooked gem from Martin Denny – cut during a range of later sides for Liberty Records, but somehow a standout, thanks to some soulful undercurrents in the music! The arranger is billed as Harold Johnson – who may well be the same cat leading the groovy sextet over on Revue ... LP, Vinyl record album

Martin Denny

Primitiva
Liberty, Late 50s. Very Good
One of Martin Denny's greatest albums – thanks to some extra special added elements! For the record, Denny's classic quartet is augmented by a wealth of odd added percussion – including gongs, cymbals, tuned logs, steel drums, chimes, and "chromatic bamboo"! All of these ... LP, Vinyl record album

Martin Denny

Latin Village
Liberty, 1964. Very Good
Martin Denny changes the rhythms from tropical to Latin here – but the overall groove is still highly in his best exotica mode, and nicely augmented by some additional instrumentation! There's some traces here of the shift in production for instrumental music from the time – a bit of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Si Zentner

Desafinado
Liberty, 1963. Near Mint-
A set that has the trombonist hitting a great big band take on bossa nova – one that's surprisingly great overall, with some rich jazz charts penned by Bob Florence, who really helps make the whole thing sparkle! Zetner's horn is often wrapped up in additional trombones – a frontline ... LP, Vinyl record album

Pearls Of Love
Liberty, 1957. Very Good+
... LP, Vinyl record album
Liberty, 1967. Near Mint-
A mod swinger from bandleader Si Zentner – a talent who's always ready to groove with the times – which in this case means that he's got a sweet 60s style that's mighty darn nice! Si's band is a big one, but they've got a lean Liberty Records feel here – really moving nicely over ... LP, Vinyl record album

Various

This Is Stereo
Liberty, 1960. Sealed
With selections from Si Zenter, Gene McDaniels, Johnny Mann, Felix Slatkin, Martin Denny, Julie London, Bud & Travis, and Spike Jones. LP, Vinyl record album

Dean Martin

Cha Cha de Amor
Capitol, Early 60s. Very Good+
Dean Martin does a batch of Latiny material, with cha cha cha orchestrations by Nelson Riddle. Not straight Latin stuff, but a very different take on Dino's style, and a cool way to hear him sing – even if it's not the right side of the Atlantic. A dozen tracks in all, including "Somebo ... LP, Vinyl record album
Time, Early 60s. Very Good+
A gem of a record from Joe Cain – a fantastic arranger who's never gotten his due! The overall approach is what you'd expect from the title – a batch of 60s hits, done in easy instrumental versions – but Joe's style of bringing the instruments together makes for some real magic ...
