What's New

LP (Item 605026) Decca, Mid 60s — Condition: Near Mint-

Oh for the days when you could go to a club and hear a singer like this – peppy, jazzy, but also able to put over a sad and dreamy tune when she wants to. Marian only recorded a few records, and this one's probably her best – a jaunty set of tunes with arrangements by Charles Albertine, Sy Oliver, and Ray Scott. Some tracks are groovy, some sad and lonely, and others have a nice playful feel that keeps the set fresh – and titles include "There's A Time & A Place For Everything", "Give Me The Simple Life", "I'm The Lonesomest Gal In Town", "It Makes No Difference", and "I'll Sing You One Song".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(In great shape!)

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.

Very groovy work from Marian Montgomery – an overlooked 60s singer who had a wonderful "punch" in her voice!

Go Latin
Decca, 1966. Near Mint-

An obscure one from Annie Ross – recording here as a solo act back in England after leaving her famous group with Dave Lambert and John Hendricks!

Home On The Range
Decca, 1938. Very Good
The cross of Bing Crosby and country western might seem a bit of a surprise if you only know him from his mainstream singles and film work – but the Bing of the 30s had a sound that was key in the later growth of country music in the US – from his early use of steel guitar in Hawaiian-th ...

Krog has always been tremendously ... LP, Vinyl record album
