Woman Blue

LP (Item 616756) Vanguard, 1965 — Condition: Very Good+

Folksy vocals from the lovely Judy Roderick – an album that sits nicely across a few different genres, and which really even stands out from the rest of its generation! Judy's a folk singer at heart, but she's working here with some jazzier inflections, as well as a bit of country western sensibility – in a style that's years ahead of its time, and almost prefaces some of the alt-country and underground work bubbling in the indie scene today. There's still a frailness here that allies Judy with the sound of 60s folk – particularly that of Jean Ritchie – but the overall sound is somehow more complex, and deeper. Titles include "Someone To Talk My Troubles To", "You Were On My Mind", "Two Hoboes", "Woman Blue", "Louisville Lou", "Walking Slow Behind You", and "Black & Blue".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Original white label promo. Cover has some light staining and peeling near the bottom, but is nice overall.)

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.
