Oscar Peterson Plays Vincent Youmans

LP (Item 579587) Clef, Late 50s — Condition: Very Good-

(Black label Clef pressing with trumpeter logo and deep groove. Cover has a center split in the bottom seam.)

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.

Verve, 1952. Very Good+
An overlooked side of the Oscar Peterson genius of the 50s – an album of laidback vocal tracks that are a great change from his better-known instrumental work! Peterson's not the sort of singer to belt out a tune at the top of his lungs – nor cast it in shimmering gossamer like some of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Verve, 1957. Very Good-
An unusual live date for Oscar Peterson – in that it wasn't actually officially recorded by Verve, but done by a fan and handed over to Norman Granz at a later date! Given that origin, though, the material is quite strong – recorded with an edge that's slightly earthier than usual for ... LP, Vinyl record album

We Get Requests
Verve, 1964. Very Good
A key example of the popularity of the Oscar Peterson Trio in the mid 60s – an album of tracks that listeners wanted to hear done in the group's familiar style! The tunes are simple ones, mostly standards and 60s covers – but they're done by Oscar, Ray Brown, and Ed Thigpen in a mode ... LP, Vinyl record album

Fiorello!
Verve, 1960. Very Good
A refreshingly new set of tunes for Oscar Peterson to work his magic on – titles pulled from the musical Fiorello, a big hit at the time of recording, but virtually forgotten now! As usual, Peterson makes more with the tunes than might ever have been there in the first place – but it's ... LP, Vinyl record album
Clef, 1959. Very Good-
Cole Porter's tunes are great enough on their own, but Oscar really opens them up on this set – picking up the inherent rhythms in the numbers and really working them over – in a way that makes the outing one of the most lively in Peterson's songbook series for Verve! Oscar's fluid ... LP, Vinyl record album
