Contemporary Composers Interpreted

LP (Item 577814) Dot, Late 60s — Condition: Near Mint-
Contemporary Composers include Paul Simon, Jimmy Webb, Tim Hardin, John Sebastian, and Burt Bacharach!  © 1996-2024, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

Liberace takes on the sound of "today" – with backings from the Gordon Robinson orchestra, and 60s tunes that include "Two For The Road", "A Man & A Woman", "The Impossible Dream", and "Georgy Girl". Lee even taps and narrates a bit too! LP, Vinyl record album

Morton Gould

More Jungle Drums
RCA, 1964. Near Mint-
Better than it sounds – as this one, like the initial Jungle Drums album, is low on the drums, and much more in the mode of Gould's usual light classic work. In fact, we're kind of hard pressed to hear any percussion at all – as the main groove is orchestral performances of Latin ... LP, Vinyl record album
RCA, 1968. Very Good+
A great little album of Latiny tunes from Henry Mancini – played by a very hip lineup of west coast jazzmen! The rhythms have a great mix of Latin influences and Mancini magic – the kind of grooves you'd hear on his 60s soundtracks at the time, played by a lineup that includes Bud ...
