Jennie

LP (Item 631431) RCA, 1957 — Condition: Very Good+

An overlooked vocal session from RCA – recorded in that magical year of 1957, when it seemed the label would never stop putting out great music! Jennie Smith is one of the lesser-known girl singers on the label, but she definitely fits in well with their approach – getting full backings here from Ray Ellis, in ways that make for lots of dark corners and moody moments – not entirely traditional torch, but a very blue-tinged batch of arrangements. Titles include "All My Life", "No Such Luck", "I Hear Music", "Sometimes I'm Happy", "I'm A Fool To Want You", and "I'll String Along With You".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Black label mono pressing with deep groove. Cover has half split seams and light aging.)

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.
