Gary Crosby – Orchestra Conducted By Bud Shank

LP (Item 52741) World Pacific, 1957 — Condition: Very Good+

A strange little record, but one with more of a jazz component than you might think! Gary's the son of Bing, natch – and he's following here in his pop's footsteps, singing jazz standards with backing conducted by Bud Shank. The interesting thing is that the session was actually recorded in Germany – and the group features some hip Europeans, like Roland Kovac on piano, Atilla Zoller on guitar, Jerry Van Rooyen on trumpet, and Hans Koller on tenor. Shank plays as well – and titles include "Blue Prelude", "Exactly Like You", "Please Send Me Someone To Love", "One For My Baby", and "Love Is Just Around The Corner".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Blue label pressing with silver text and deep groove. Cover has light wear and a bit of seam splitting.)

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.
