Here's Looking At You

LP (Item 552311) Decca, Mid 50s — Condition: Very Good

Early work from Sammy Davis Jr – at a time when he was already one hell of a singer! Backings are by Sy Oliver and Mort Stevens – and titles include "It Started All Over Again", "She Always Knows", "The Clown", "The Blues To End The Blues", "In A Persian Market", and "Don't Let Her Go".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Heavy black label pressing. Cover is nice.)

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.

Mark Murphy

Let Yourself Go
Decca, 1957. Very Good
One of Mark Murphy's first albums – quite different than his later work, but swinging and jazzy as he could always be! Ralph Burns arranged the set, and even at this early point, you can hear what a talent Murphy is – singing with a confident swing that wasn't often the case for male ... LP, Vinyl record album

Carmen McRae

Mad About The Man
Decca, 1958. Very Good+
Wonderful early work from Carmen McRae – a set of tunes originally composed by Noel Coward, served up by Carmen with a very hip 50s feel! The orchestrations here are by Jack Pleis, who really gets the mood right for the set – and shakes off some of the floweriness that could sometimes ... LP, Vinyl record album

Della Reese

Black Is Beautiful
Avco, Early 70s. Very Good+ Gatefold
A pretty darn hip album from Della Reese – certainly her funkiest, with a strong mixture of soul and jazz that reminds us a lot of some of the Esther Philips albums on Kudu. Arrangements are by Peter Myers and Bobby Bryant, with "sweetening arrangements" by Sammy Lowe, who we ... LP, Vinyl record album
Capitol, 1959. Very Good+
A surprising return to jazz by Dinah Shore – recorded with backings by the Red Norvo Quintet, and a swinging style that makes us like her more than we'd think! Titles include "Who", "It's Funny To Everyone", "Bye Bye Blues", "Lover Come Back To Me", ... LP, Vinyl record album
Time, 1962. Very Good+
A wonderful set by Carmen McRae – captured at San Francisco's Sugar Hill in 1962 – backed by a tight trio! Carmen is in sweet form here, very loose and and wise, and the group knows just how to fill out the sound. She scats loosely on the opening "Sunday", nearly hits a weep ... LP, Vinyl record album

Peggy Lee

So Blue
Vocalion, Early 50s. Very Good+
Early 50s work for Decca – with titles that include "You're Blase", "Something I Dreamed Last Night", "So Blue", "Too Late Now", "Street Of Dreams", and "It Never Entered My Mind". LP, Vinyl record album

Frank Sinatra

Voice
Columbia, 1940s. Very Good+
A classic full length collection of early Frank Sinatra recordings for Columbia Records – and maybe the definitive album of his mid 40s material originally issued on 78s! The quality of Sinatra's vocals here definitely live up to "The Voice" promised on the cover – as the ... LP, Vinyl record album
