Gee Baby Ain't I Good To You?

LP (Item 551978) Capitol, Late 50s — Condition: Very Good-

Great work from singer Donna Hightower – a vocalist who'd later express herself in a much wider range, but who's already great here in a more jazz-styled mode!  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Rainbow label stereo pressing. Cover has wear and aging, some splitting in the top seam, small split in the bottom seam, and some smudges in back.)

Very Good - (minus)

  • Vinyl may be dirty, and can lack a fair amount of luster.
  • Vinyl can have a number of marks, either in clusters or smaller amounts, but deeper.
  • This is the kind of record that you'd buy to play, but not because it looked that great. Still, the flaws should be mostly cosmetic, with nothing too deep that would ruin the overall record.
  • Examples include a record that has been kept for a while in a cover without the paper sleeve, or heavily played by a previous owner and has some marks across the surface. The record should play okay, though probably with surface noise.

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.

How Glad I Am
Capitol, Late 60s. Near Mint-
Nice stuff from that period when Nancy was forging her unique mix of soul, jazz, and pop vocals into a sophisticated blend that transcended all styles. The title cut's a great one, with Nancy's vocals lilting nicely over the top – and the record features some other nice moments, like "Th ... LP, Vinyl record album

Frank Sinatra

Swingin Affair
Capitol, Mid 50s. Very Good-
A Swingin Affair indeed – as the album's one of our favorite ever from Frank's Capitol years! Nelson Riddle shows here that he can be just as great on the uptempo numbers as he is on the ballads – and casts Sinatra's full rich vocals into a great set of older swinging tunes. Frank ...

Only The Lonely
Capitol, 1958. Very Good+
One of Frank Sinatra's last great ballad albums for Capitol – a sad and dreamy batch of tunes that kicks off with the incredible "Only The Lonely" – one of those Sinatra torch songs that's so great, so sad, nobody else has ever been able to record a better version, nor have ...

Nellie Lutcher

Real Gone! (80s pressing)
Capitol, 1950s. Near Mint-
A bit jazz, a bit R&B, and swingin all the way through – the great Nellie Lutcher was one of the better singers of her generation, and it's a darn shame that she's not as well remembered as some of her other postwar musical contemporaries. This set was cut for Capitol during the early ... LP, Vinyl record album

Frank Sinatra

Come Swing With Me!
Capitol, 1961. Near Mint-
One of Frank's liveliest albums for Capitol – a return to the harder-swinging mode of the early and mid 50s, after a wealth of sadder albums in the later part of the decade. Backings are by Billy May – in that brassy mode he used at the time, one that kept the tunes hiply grooving, ... LP, Vinyl record album

A later Capitol gem by June – where she reprisies a number of classics from her early years with Stan Kenton – new versions of late 40s tunes, done here with Pete Rugolo arrangements that go a good way towards showing how both he and June had grown during the 50s. Titles include "H ... LP, Vinyl record album

Late Nat King Cole – an album from the early 60s for Capitol, featuring expansive arrangements from Ralph Carmichael!
