Down To Eartha

LP (Item 616650) RCA/Victor, Mid 50s — Condition: Very Good

(Mono pressing with deep groove.)

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.

Lena Horne & Michel Legrand

Lena & Michel
RCA, 1975. Sealed
A sweetly mellow album of 70s work from Lena – cut in a mode that's as soulful as her sides for the Skye label a few years earlier, and handled by the same producer too! The main difference in the style is the presence of Michel Legrand – working here in a mode that's still got the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lurlean Hunter

Lonesome Gal
RCA, 1956. Very Good-
Moody set of vocals recorded by this obscure Chicago singer. Lurlean got her start at the classy south side Club DeLisa, home to Sun Ra, and a host of other Chicago talents – but by the time of this recording, she'd moved downtown, and had become a classy smoky voiced singer with a good ...

Kay Starr

Blue Starr
RCA, 1957. Near Mint-
Plenty of blue tones in Kay Starr's music here – those sad-tinged sounds that made her a real standout in 50s pop, served up here with some slightly jazzier elements as well! The record's a nice contrast to some of Kay's more familiar hits – in that it still shows her singing strongly ... LP, Vinyl record album

June Valli

Torch
RCA, 1958. Very Good
Torchy vocals from June Valli – a singer we don't know much, but who really sparkles on this late 50s set for RCA! June's a singer with definite range – sometimes subdued, sometimes much more expressive – and the backings from Joe Reisman do a great job of matching her mood on ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lena Horne

Stormy Weather
RCA, 1957. Very Good
One of Lena Horne's greatest albums of the 50s – a rock-solid effort that takes its name from her famous film appearance of the 40s, but which features some wonderfully sophisticated songs in a very postwar mode! As with other RCA dates of the time, the orchestra's handled by Lena's partner ... LP, Vinyl record album
