My Ship

LP (Item 532878) Emily, 1975 — Condition: Near Mint-

Great small combo work from Anita O'Day – done at a time when the singer had maybe faded from the American limelight a bit, but continued to do some really exceptional work for a variety of smaller labels! In fact, we might even say that Anita during this stretch was even hipper than before – as even on some of her classic 50s albums, she maybe still had a bit of the hoke from the big band years – whereas the O'Day on this album is older, mature, and really wonderfully suited to bring the most out of the tunes – all familiar, but handled with spare backings that really let the lady remind us why jazz vocals, when done right, are such a wonderful art! Titles include "After You've Gone", "The Man I Love", "Penthouse Serenade", "My Ship", and "Mean To Me".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

Anita O'Day

Anita
Verve, 1956. Very Good
One of the strongest of Anita's mid 50s outings for Verve – a tightly-crafted set that benefits from some good arrangements from Buddy Bregman! The format is perfect for Anita – giving her little space to have to make decisions, and letting her concentrate on the tone and charm that ... LP, Vinyl record album

Anita O'Day & Cal Tjader

Time For Two
Verve, 1962. Very Good+
A great little meeting of two of the better talents on Verve Records in the early 60s – one that pairs the warm vocals of Anita O'Day with the cool vibes of Cal Tjader – in a sweet little session that's actually one of O'Day's best from the time! The feel here is lively, and slightly ... LP, Vinyl record album

Billy Eckstine

Stormy
Enterprise, 1970. Near Mint-
Think what you might about Mr. B, but this is a sweet soulful album of dreamy pop songs, produced and arranged by Isaac Hayes, with a similar sound to some of the work from the same time by Grady Tate. Billy's voice is as deep and round as always, and the newer backing brings a nice quality to his ... LP, Vinyl record album

Steve Lawrence & Eydie Gorme

Steve & Eydie Together On Broadway
Columbia, Early 60s. Near Mint-
Loads of groovy Pat Williams arrangements – on titles that include "Come Back To Me", "The Curtain Falls", "I Believe In You", "The Honeymoon Is Over", "Sunrise Sunset", "Walking Happy", "Old Fashioned Wedding", and "To ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jimmy Witherspoon

Spoonful Of Blues
United, Mid 60s. Very Good+
Classic jazzy blues from one of the best in the business – and an album that doesn't show up as often as it used to. Titles include "Good Jumpin", "Fickle Woman", "No Rollin Blues", "Big Fine Girl", and "Failing By Degrees". LP, Vinyl record album

Jimmy Witherspoon

Blues For Easy Livers
Prestige, 1967. Very Good
Blues, but with a nice jazzy finish – thanks to arrangements by Roger Kellaway, and small group playing by Pepper Adams, Richard Davis, Mel Lewis, and Kellaway. Jimmy's voice is nice and easy, and he more than keeps up with the hip group on the album's 12 short tracks. Titles include "L ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ella Fitzgerald

Ella At Duke's Place
Verve, 1965. Near Mint- Gatefold
A beautiful classic from mid 60s Verve – and the kind of a session that we wouldn't have expected to come off so well! In a style they were using with older artists at the time, Verve brought Ella and Duke into the studio together – with Duke's band and compositions providing the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Kenny Rankin

Inside Kenny Rankin
Little David, 1975. Near Mint-
Pure 70s genius from Kenny Rankin – and an album that's filled with beautifully compressed tunes that squeeze together jazz and soul into a unique sound that's Kenny's own! There's a gentleness to the set that's extremely refreshing – a floating quality to the vocals that's a bit like ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ella Fitzgerald

Ella
Reprise, 1969. Near Mint-
Groovy Ella from the end of the 60s – the kind of record that marked a really nice change from her staid work for Verve in years past! The setting here is bouncy and mod – a great mixture of jazz, soul, and bits of late 60s Brit Easy – no surprise, given that the sessions were ... LP, Vinyl record album
Blue Note, 1968. Very Good Gatefold
The quintessential sound of late 60s Horace Silver – on one hand still very much in the Blue Note soul jazz groove that earned him plenty of jukebox single play, but on the other hand really stretching out with a style that's a bit more righteous than before! Horace shows that he can still ... LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny Lytle

Fast Hands
Muse, 1980. Very Good+
A great date from the revival years of Johnny Lytle – his stretch for Muse Records at the end of the 70s, and a bit of a return to his soul jazz roots of the 60s! The tracks here are a bit longer than before, but they've got a similar sort of energy – a nice rhythmic undercurrent that ... LP, Vinyl record album
