Monday Every Day – Al Hibbler Sings The Blues

LP (Item 513665) Reprise, 1961 — Condition: Very Good

Vocalist Al Hibbler gets some of the coolest backings of his career – some great arrangements from the young Gerald Wilson, who makes the music swing in ways that Al never got back in the 50s! The tune's got a sharp, soulful sparkle that really comes from Wilson's great charts – inventive use of instrumentation and timings that work perfectly with that amazing Hibbler voice – easily one of the most impressive male jazz modes of the postwar years, but not always given a setting this great! Hibbler's sense of personality and phrasing comes through wonderfully – and there's a mature sophistication to the record that's really marvelous – a vibe that's more late 60s than you'd expect from the date. Titles include "Don't Take Your Love From Me", "When The Sun Comes Out", "You Of All People", "Dinner For One Please James", and "Laughing On The Outside".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Original mono pressing with deep groove.)

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.
