Songs By Burke & Van Heusen

LP (Item 610923) RCA, 1959 — Condition: Very Good+

Think what you want about Lena Horne, the lady's got one of the most distinct voices of her time – and she really sparkled nicely during her years at RCA! This set features backing from longtime collaborator Lennie Hayton, in a style that was lush, but never cloying – and which brought out the best qualities in Lena's voice. Classy sophistication all the way through, with 12 tracks that include "Ring The Bell", "But Beautiful", "It's Anybody's Spring", "It Could Happen To You", "You Don't Have To Know The Language", "Like Someone In Love", and "Get Rid Of Monday".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Black label stereo pressing. Cover has light wear.)

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.
