World We Knew

LP (Item 567441) Reprise, Late 60s — Condition: Near Mint-
A later gem from Sinatra – filled with a mix of unusual mature songs, set to arrangements by Ernie Freeman Claus Ogerman, Billy Strange, and Jimmy Bowen. Titles include his "Somethin Stupid" duet with Nancy – plus "This Town", "This Is My Song", "This Is My Love", "The World We Knew", and the perfect "Drinking Again" – a Reprise Records classic if there ever was one!  © 1996-2023, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Mono orange & tan label stereo pressing. Cover has light wear, small faint stain on lower corner. The back cover has light stuck-on paper ring wear.)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor surface noise when played.

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.

Capitol, Early 50s. Near Mint-
This Is Sinatra indeed – a wonderful collection of singles, and a near-lost album to the shifting sands of time!

Nancy & Lee
