Billie Holiday Story

LP (Item 517093) Decca, Late 40s — Condition: Near Mint-
2LP Gatefold
Temporarily Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album

✈
❔

(Stereo Decca pressing. Cover has some surface wear, seam splitting, and a Stimulated Stereo sticker on the top seam.)

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.

Billie Holiday

Solitude
Verve, 1952. Sealed
Classic Billie Holiday for Verve – sad, blue-tinged, and recorded with great small combo backing – in a mode that really updates the sound of her initial recordings while still keeping the best elements intact!

Billie Holiday (MGM)
MGM, 1959. Very Good+
One of Billie's last sessions – recorded with beautiful large backings by Ray Ellis, and a heartbreaking tone that may not show Billie as strong technically as on some of her earlier albums, but which is pretty darn compelling nonetheless. Titles include "All The Way", "Don't ... LP, Vinyl record album

Caterina Valente/Silvio Francesco

Go Latin
Decca, 1966. Near Mint-
A great album recorded by singer Caterina Valente and her brother Silvio – both of them with a decidedly Latin flair!

Jeri Southern

You Better Go Now
Decca, Early 50s. 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 ... LP, Vinyl record album
Decca, 1964. Very Good
An obscure one from Annie Ross – recording here as a solo act back in England after leaving her famous group with Dave Lambert and John Hendricks! The style here is a bit like some of the solo work that Ross cut in the US at the end of the 50s – particularly her sides for Pacific Jazz ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bing Crosby

Home On The Range
Decca, 1938. Very Good
The cross of Bing Crosby and country western might seem a bit of a surprise if you only know him from his mainstream singles and film work – but the Bing of the 30s had a sound that was key in the later growth of country music in the US – from his early use of steel guitar in Hawaiian-th ...

Amazing Nina Simone
Colpix, 1959. Very Good
Amazing is right – as Nina Simone is really taking off here – showing the world that she's way more than just another jazz singer – able to hit some righteous currents that would only explode even more in years to come! Nina's emotion is subtle, but extremely powerful – ... LP, Vinyl record album
