Sommers' Seasons

LP (Item 616759) Warner, 1963 — Condition: Near Mint-

Joanie Sommers takes on the seasons of the years – in a sweet little concept album that's almost her equivalent of Julie London's famous Calendar Girl record! Stan Applebaum's on hand to help with arrangements, and his styles here are a mix of jazzy backgrounds and some fuller, lusher styles that still have plenty of space for Joanie's vocals – and Sommers definitely shows a strong move away from pop, into some more mature modes that really fit the right mood for each season-themed track on the set. Titles include "Summertime", "Autumn Serenade", "Early Autumn", "June Comes Around Every Year", and "Autumn In Rome".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Mono pressing. Cover has light wear and some staple holes in one corner.)

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.
