Social Call

LP (Item 58224) Columbia, Mid 50s — Condition: Very Good+

A great little set that brings together some of Betty Carter's rare vocal recordings for the Epic label – including a handful that were unreleased until the issue of this album! There's a total of 11 tracks in the set – with 6 from the Meet Betty Carter and Ray Bryant album, which features piano by Bryant, arrangements by Quincy Jones, and some excellent vocals by Betty. The other stuff's even better, though – as it's arranged by Gigi Gryce, whose cool floating style is a perfect one for Betty's incredible voice. Titles include "Social Call", "Tell Him I Said Hello", "Frenesi", "Runaway", "Thou Swell", "The Way You Look Tonight", and "Tell Him I Said Hello".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight 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.
