Sweet Charity

LP (Item 56299) Decca, Late 60s — Condition: Sealed
Gatefold

Ok, so this is a musical – not really our usual bag – but it does contain one of the greatest Sammy Davis Jr songs of all time: the sweetly swinging "Rhythm Of Life", which Sammy sings in character as "Big Daddy", a hip strutting street preacher who kicks it with a groovy punchy sound! Shirley's vocals aren't that great – kind of thin and wispy – but she does get some really great songs, including "I'm A Brass Band", "My Personal Property", and "Where Am I Going" – plus the over-tired "If My Friends Could See Me Now". Orchestrations are by Joseph Gershenson, and the album also has one nice groovy instrumental – "The Pompeii Club", a nice little frug number!  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Stereo pressing. Shrinkwrap has a hole in the top rigth corner. Cover has a small cutout hole.)

Sealed

This is what it says, that the record is still held fast in shrink-wrap. We tend to be pretty suspicious about these things, so if the shrink-wrap doesn't look original, or if the record seems to have undergone some damage over time, we'll probably take it out of the wrapper to ensure that it's in good shape — which is why we don't have more of these. In some cases the shrink-wrap may be torn in spots, but if it's not possible the record has been taken out and played, the record will still qualify as "Sealed".

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.
