Zither Magic!

LP (Item 520699) Capitol, Late 50s — Condition: Very Good+

(Rainbow label pressing. Cover has light wear.)

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight 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.

Tamboo!
Capitol, Late 50s. Very Good-
A landmark album of exotica!

Fire Goddess
Capitol, Early 60s. Very Good
One of the better of the Webley Edwards pseudo-ethnographic albums, and one that features some haunting female voices that have a nice moody exotica quality.

Tawny (10 inch LP)
Capitol, Early 50s. Very Good+
A serious suite of music from Jackie Gleason – his extended "Tawny" suite on side one of the record, a lush, loving portrait of an imaginary girl! The music is in the more romantic side of the Gleason spectrum – heavy on strings, with some muted horns – and a style ... LP, Vinyl record album

Laurindo Almeida

Viva Bossa Nova!
Capitol, 1962. Very Good+
A sweet little album from Laurindo Almeida and his "Bossa Nova All Stars" – not a group of Brazilian musicians, and instead a hip set of LA players who really help make the set sparkle! There's a bit more jazz here than on some of Laurindo's other Capitol records of the time – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Capitol, Early 50s. Very Good-
The notes say that the album is "the rare plum of authenticity". We don't know if we'd go that far, but we can tell you that the record features Yma performing songs of the legendary Jivaro headhunters! Supposedly, Yma learned them in her "South American jungle-home", but we ... LP, Vinyl record album

Holy cow! A rare early Esquivel album, recorded in Mexico in the years before he came to the US! The record shows Esquivel's roots in the post-swing era, leading a big band that runs through everything from moody standards to souped up "rock & roll" material. The setting appears to ...

Sounds In The Night
Roulette, Early 60s. Very Good-
An excellent album of late night sax and organ numbers – featuring the enigmatic alto player Big Sam Marowitz, paired with arrangements that make some nice use of the thinner end of the Hammond organ spectrum!
