Both Phase 4 and Stanley Black have made their share of snoozy LPs, but this is not one of them! The label lists the talent as "Stanley Black with Women's Voices", and boy do those gals give his music a kick. Their spooky chorus haunts these exotic ditties, and ally Stanley's sound much more with the Les Baxter/Hollywood version of exotica than the snoozy fifties London stuff. An exotica classic – no wonder it's one of the toughest Phase 4 LPs to find.  © 1996-2017, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.
