Strings Swing

LP (Item 550057) Top Rank, Late 50s — Condition: Very Good

(White label promo in the die-cut cover, with small stickers on the spine and label.)

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.

Christopher Scott

Switched-On Bacharach
Decca, 1973. Very Good+
Bacharach and moog – what a combination! The album features moogy versions of Burt's biggest hits of the 60s – played in a weird and moody style by Christopher Scott, and presented with a very good sense of Bacharach's original timing and poise for the tunes. The combination shouldn't ... LP, Vinyl record album

Henry Mancini

Mancini's Angels
RCA, 1977. Very Good+
Mancini does a great job with the theme to Charlie's Angels, and also adds in some cool keyboards you wouldn't have heard on the original – and the rest of the album is a mix of other mid 70s TV themes, plus some cool originals penned by Mancini himself, but with a very similar flavor – ...

Amor
Everest, Late 50s. Very Good
The softer sound of Raymond Scott – not as way-out and wild as you'd know from his better-publicized work on classic cartoons – but still plenty darn great overall! The album's heavy with strings – billed as "swinging" on the cover, but a bit more "swaying" ... LP, Vinyl record album

Capitol, 1967. Very Good+
Bossa guitar, dreamy orchestrations, and a wonderful American take on the Brazilian sound of the 60s – served up with sparkling Capitol Records production in a set that's easily one of the greatest by guitarist Laurindo Almeida! Almeida's guitar is matched here with some lightly jazzy ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sounds Orchestral

Soul Of Sounds Orchestral
Parkway, Mid 60s. Near Mint-
There's not as much "soul" as you'd expect here from some of the later work of Sounds Orchestral – but the record's a real mid 60s feather in the cap of arranger John Schroeder and pianist Johnny Pearson – the pair who came together wonderfully on these early sides that helped ...

Alive!
Blue Note, 1970. Very Good-
A really fantastic album from guitarist Grant Green – a set that's every bit as great as his other Blue Note funk albums from the time – but in a very different way! First off, the group has vibes – played by the more obscure Willie Bivens, sometimes with this hard chromatic ... LP, Vinyl record album

Morton Subotnick

Wild Bull
Nonesuch, 1968. Very Good
A landmark early recording from Morton Subotnick – and a piece of music that really pushed analogue electronics forward from the previous academic generation! Subtonick's style here is much more freewheeling – with almost an improvisational feel at times – sounds and noises that ... LP, Vinyl record album
Scepter, 1974. Very Good+ Gatefold
