Billie Holiday Story

2LP Gatefold
Temporarily Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album

✈
❔

(Stimulated Stereo pressing. Cover has surface wear.)

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.

Marian Montgomery

What's New
Decca, Mid 60s. Very Good+
Oh for the days when you could go to a club and hear a singer like this – peppy, jazzy, but also able to put over a sad and dreamy tune when she wants to. Marian only recorded a few records, and this one's probably her best – a jaunty set of tunes with arrangements by Charles Albertine ... LP, Vinyl record album

Mad About The Man
Decca, 1958. Very Good+
Wonderful early work from Carmen McRae – a set of tunes originally composed by Noel Coward, served up by Carmen with a very hip 50s feel! The orchestrations here are by Jack Pleis, who really gets the mood right for the set – and shakes off some of the floweriness that could sometimes ... LP, Vinyl record album
