Blue Starr

LP (Item 544285) RCA, 1957 — Condition: Used
Temporarily Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.60 38

Plenty of blue tones in Kay Starr's music here – those sad-tinged sounds that made her a real standout in 50s pop, served up here with some slightly jazzier elements as well! The record's a nice contrast to some of Kay's more familiar hits – in that it still shows her singing strongly with that undeniable Starr style, but also brings in some fresher material and arrangements too. The latter aren't credited on the cover, and at points they have some really great elements – a male backup vocal group on some numbers, a bit of tenor or harmonica on others, and even a bit of gently stepping guitar. Titles include "Blue Starr", "Wedding Bells", "It's A Lonesome Old Town", "You're Driving Me Crazy", "The House Is Haunted", "I Really Don't Want To Know", and "Just Like A Butterfly". (80s German pressing – in great shape!)  © 1996-2015, Dusty Groove, Inc.

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.

Used Vinyl Grades

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, please note that all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:

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.
