Abbe Lane With Xavier Cugat & His Orchestra

LP (Item 617297) Mercury, Early 60s — Condition: Very Good+

An obscure one from Abbe Lane – with some great Latin backing from Xavier Cugat!  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Black label stereo pressing, with deep groove! Cover has staining and peeling along the bottom 3 inches.)

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.

Plenty of blushing tones here – a classic late 50s RCA set from Abbe Lane, and one that has her working with some very cool backings from the legendary Sid Ramin!

Mercury, 1958. Very Good-

Nancy – Naturally
Capitol, Late 60s. Very Good+
A great one from Nancy Wilson – a set that has the singer working with full arrangements from Billy May, who's got this surprisingly subtle approach at times that works really well with the soulful currents in Nancy's vocals! The approach is almost more like Oliver Nelson, especially with ... LP, Vinyl record album
