Jack Jones Sings

LP (Item 611515) Kapp, 1966 — Condition: Used
Temporarily Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.60 38

Jack Jones sings, and beautifully too – on the kind of mellow album that few male singers made so well in the 60s! The set's got a great mix of jazz sensibility and straighter vocal singing – backed by light strings from Ralph Carmichael, but also a bit of tinkling piano from Doug Talbert – in a mode that floats easily with Jones' tremendous vocals. There's a depth here that's really wonderful – a quality that re-ignites even familiar tunes, but which sounds especially great on a few of the album's lesser-known numbers. Tracks include "I Don't Care Much", "Somewhere There's Someone", "Love After Midnight", "Somewhere My Love", "The Shining Sea", "A Day In The Life Of A Fool", and "The Face I Love".  © 1996-2015, Dusty Groove, Inc.

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.

Used Vinyl Grades

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, please note that all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:

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.

Voice That Is
Impulse, 1964. Very Good+ Gatefold
At the time of this album, Johnny Hartman definitely was the voice that is – a singer with a new level of maturity for the 60s, and a voice that's far more masculine than the geeky look of the photo on the cover! Hartman's sound here is smooth and warm, but never in a too-commercial way ... LP, Vinyl record album

Don't Let Go
Blue Thumb, 1974. Very Good+
Tight funky jazz from vocalist Ben Sidran – still very much in his best early mode, and playing with a really raw sound overall! Ben's vocals are in that down-home Mose Allison mode, but the real charm is the music – which features funky drums by Clyde Stubblefield, the man responsible ... LP, Vinyl record album

Love Is Blue
A&M, 1968. Very Good+
Always-great work from lovely French singer Claudine Longet – a vocalist with a style that's unlike anyone else we can think of! This one's another sublime blend of French 60s pop and sunny A&M production – arranged to perfection by the great Nick DeCaro, with touches that deepen ... LP, Vinyl record album
