Good, Bad, But Beatiful

LP (Item 601879) United Artists, 1975 — Condition: Near Mint-

...

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.

United Artists, 1959. Very Good+
Although she later lost all connection to jazz singing, in this early record, Diahann Carroll does a ok job with a batch of standards and pop material, conducted by Peter Matz, in his years before Barbara Streisand. The album's reaching for that same sort of classy sound, but thankfully has a lot ... LP, Vinyl record album

United Artists, Late 50s. Very Good
Nice obscure set of blues material recorded for United Artists – featuring the little-known Big Miller performing a set of 11 compositions from the pen of Langston Hughes. The backing on here is similar to that of a Jimmy Rushing album from the same time – as it includes arrangements ... LP, Vinyl record album

Kenny Rankin

Mind Dusters
Mercury, 1967. Very Good
A brilliant record – Kenny Rankin's first, and a really unique mix of styles that's completely different from his more famous later albums! The album has a gentle folksy style with touches of jazz – a bit like some of Tim Hardin's work for Verve, but without as much of a sad loser ... LP, Vinyl record album

Joanie Sommers

Come Alive
Columbia, 1966. Very Good
Really groovy work from singer Joanie Sommers – an overlooked gem recorded after her initial albums for Warner Brothers, and put together with some mighty cool arrangements from the great Mort Garson! Joanie's lost all her little girl pop modes here – and instead really comes across ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jackie & Roy

Sing Baby Sing
Storyville, Mid 50s. Near Mint-
One of the greatest albums ever cut by Jackie and Roy! This one captures them in the early days – right after they'd left Charlie Ventura, and were beginning to sing and pen some fantastic little jazz ditties on their own. The album features the recorded debut of Tommy Wolf, who would ... LP, Vinyl record album

Nina Simone

Sings The Blues
RCA, 1967. Near Mint-
Nina's not just singing the blues here – she's completely reinventing the sound of the format – by drawing on a long tradition of vocal expression, and infusing it with the hipper, more personally exploratory mode she forged in the 60s! The album's got a subtle brilliance that means ... LP, Vinyl record album
LG, 1963. Very Good+
Very obscure record made by the enigmatic Leo Gooden, a politician and night club owner from East St. Louis who made a few records on his own tiny LG label. Gooden's an interesting guy – probably more interesting than he is musically capable – and we're always amazed at the people he ... LP, Vinyl record album

Joey Heatherton

Joey Heatherton Album
MGM, 1972. Near Mint-
Was there a sexier 70s celebrity than Joey Heatherton? It's hard to think so – and while we certainly remember her from countless variety show appearances at the time, it's actually a bit hard to remember her as a singer (something that's due, no doubt, to the fact that we were so busy ...

Keely Smith

I Wish You Love
Capitol, 1957. Very Good
The gentler side of Keely Smith – recorded here away from Louis Prima in a warmly sweet style that reminds us that she's a heck of a great singer on her own! The album features some top-shelf backings by Nelson Riddle, who gives Keely the kind of sensitive interpretations that he brought to ... LP, Vinyl record album
