Nearness Of You

LP (Item 622888) Capitol, 1967 — Condition: Very Good

(Rainbow label stereo pressing.)

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.

Frank Sinatra

Only The Lonely
Capitol, 1958. Near Mint-
One of Frank Sinatra's last great ballad albums for Capitol – a sad and dreamy batch of tunes that kicks off with the incredible "Only The Lonely" – one of those Sinatra torch songs that's so great, so sad, nobody else has ever been able to record a better version, nor have ...

... LP, Vinyl record album
Capitol, 1962. Near Mint-
Pure crooning genius from Vic Damone – with fresh arrangements from Capitol maestro Jack Marshall! Marshall's work in the studio was often playful – sometimes a bit too much so, as on his own instrumental albums – but here he brings out a real boldness in Damone's voice, a ...

Capitol, 1957. Near Mint-
Quite a rare album from Peggy Lee – and a strange one too! The album features backings "conducted" by Frank Sinatra, done in a moody, flowing, dreamy and sad style – similar to his own work of the late 50s Capitol years, especially the more melancholy albums that we love so ...

Nancy Wilson

How Glad I Am
Capitol, Late 60s. Very Good+
Nice stuff from that period when Nancy was forging her unique mix of soul, jazz, and pop vocals into a sophisticated blend that transcended all styles. The title cut's a great one, with Nancy's vocals lilting nicely over the top – and the record features some other nice moments, like "Th ... LP, Vinyl record album

Nancy Wilson

Gentle Is My Love
Capitol, Late 60s. Very Good
A bit lusher, and a bit more pop-vocal oriented than some of Nancy's other Capitol albums – this one has arrangements by Sid Feller, and a rich string-laden sound that's nicely juxtaposed against Nancy's soulful vocals. Titles include "Gentle Is My Love", "When He Makes ... LP, Vinyl record album
Capitol, 1959. Very Good+
An excellent vocal set – one that finds June taking on a number of Broadway tunes, a soundtrack song or two, and other great tunes of the early-to-mid 60s with some strains of samba and other Latin inspired sounds – with her lovely vocals shining brightly or in a sultry coo, depending ... LP, Vinyl record album
Capitol, 1964. Very Good+
A very groovy set of standards and 60s pop tunes – all done by Nancy in her great soulful swinging style! The record's got far more to offer than you'd guess from the track list, as Nancy's at the height of her early career here – and she's getting backing from a very sympathetic west ...

Johnny Hartman & Terumasa Hino

Hartman Meets Hino
Capitol (Japan), 1972. Very Good+ Gatefold
A rare Japanese-only session from 1972 – one that features trumpeter Terumasa Hino co-leading the record with Johnny Hartman, and an album that never came out in the US! The feel here is easygoing and jazzy – not nearly as dark and brooding as some of Hartman's other ballad albums, and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Peggy Lee

Sugar 'N' Spice
Capitol, 1962. Very Good-
Peggy's sweet as sugar, but working here with a heck of a lot of spice – thanks to arranger Benny Carter, who brings in a wonderfully jazzy feel to the set! The album's one of Peggy's best from her comeback years at Capitol – and a prime example of the syncopated, slinking mode of ... LP, Vinyl record album

King Sisters

Warm & Wonderful
Capitol, Late 50s. Very Good
A nicely mellow album from this female harmony group – almost the gals answer to the sound of the Four Freshmen on Capitol! The set is laidback, with some larger backings by Alvino Ray that have a great round tone that fleshes out the sound nicely. LP, Vinyl record album

Chris Connor

Chris Craft
Atlantic, 1958. Very Good-
Chris' Craft is a great one here – beautifully simple and straightforward jazz vocals, served up at a level that few other singers can match! The album's one of our favorites from Connor's classic years with Atlantic – as it's got a mellow, moody approach that's filled with the darker ... LP, Vinyl record album
