An unusual set for organist Joey De Francesco – because he not only plays his usual Hammond, but also sings a bit as well! Joey's vocal style is surprisingly great – kind of that honest male mode that came up in the farther reaches of the 50s – the way a musician might croon in a small club, even when he knew he wasn't the stuff of concert halls – still more than willing to vocalize his way through a familiar number as he stepped away from his usual instrument. This approach really has a lot of charm, and almost humanizes Joey even more than usual – although we're also happy to report that his work on Hammond is just as hard-grooving as ever! There's big band backing on a number of tracks, and titles include "Mack The Knife", "The Sidewalk Is Wild", "One Mint Julep", "Mr Dennis Houlihan", "You'd Be So Nice To Come Home To", and "Let Me Love You Tonight". © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
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.
We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible.
When you purchase a Used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use but if there are significant details or defects we will list them underneath the item — just like we do with LPs — so look there for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details.
All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.
