Simple Pleasures

LP (Item 595571) EMI/Manhattan, 1988 — Condition: Near Mint-
Also available
Bobby McFerrin — Simple Pleasures ... CD 2.99

...

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.

EMI (Sweden), 1970. Sealed
One of the grooviest albums ever recorded – a set that's funky, offbeat, and has way more to offer than most American album of the time! Swedish singer Doris really knocked it out of the park with this one – working with arranger Bert Egerbladh, who gives the set some nicely unusual ... LP, Vinyl record album

Cleo Laine

Feel The Warm
Columbia/EMI (UK), 1972. Very Good+
Nice work from Cleo Laine – a 70s set, with backings by Harry Robinson – who gives the record a different vibe than her work with Johnny Dankworth! The maturing Laine style is great – and titles include "Rainy Day Man", "Good Bad But Beautiful", "Slow ... LP, Vinyl record album

Oscar Brown Jr, Sivuca, & Jean Pace

Joy
RCA, 1970. Very Good+
Oscar Brown's score for a hip play that he wrote (one of his many plays!) – performed by him, Sivuca, and Jean Pace. Despite the "show" quality of the material, this actually stands simply as a great Oscar Brown Jr. LP, and the production is nice and intimate, and sounds just like ... LP, Vinyl record album

Nancy Wilson & George Shearing

Swingin's Mutual
Capitol, Mid 60s. Near Mint-
An album of mixed vocal and instrumental cuts, some with Nancy in the lead, backed by Shearing's combo, others with Shearing's group alone. The vocal tracks are quite nice jazz ones – and include "On Green Dolphin Street", "Born To Be Blue", "All Night Long", ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bill Henderson
Vee Jay, 1961. Near Mint-
Classy supperclub vocals, with arrangements by Jimmy Jones, and some sweet polished singing from Bill Henderson. Most of the tracks are standards or pop – like "Am I Blue", "The More I See You", and "Twelfth Of Never – but there's a few nice lesser-known ones, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Judy Roberts

Nights In Brazil
Inner City, 1981. Very Good+
A sweet set of vocal tracks from Judy Roberts – a mix of original tunes and a few covers, all done with a warm fusiony style, and plenty of Brazilian touches! Judy's at the height of her powers here – partly jazzy, partly in a songstress mode that's inspired by the advances that female ... LP, Vinyl record album

Julie London

Calendar Girl
Liberty, 1956. Near Mint- Gatefold
One of Julie London's wildest albums – and one of her sexiest too! The record has Julie running through the calender – singing a song a month, dedicated to January, February, March, and so on – a really great concept for a record like this, in ways that set the album apart from ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sarah Vaughan

Divine One
Roulette, 1960. Very Good+
Sarah Vaughan definitely earns her divine nickname here – singing sublimely here in a warmly jazzy setting from her early years at Roulette Records! The style's a nice extension of Vaughan's best sides at Mercury – and is almost a nice back-to-basics approach, the kind of reminder that ... LP, Vinyl record album
