New Sound America Loves Best

LP (Item 6519) RCA, 1960 — Condition: Very Good+

The great bandleader Sid Ramin lays down some goofy orchestrations as a background for John Klein's even goofier showcase of bells. According to the notes, he's got 1,453 of them, and they ring out lound and clear on things like "Jalousie", "Harbor Lights", and "In the Still of the Night". We're not sure if it's really the "sound America loves best", but it's still pretty goofy.  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Stereo pressing with deep groove. Cover has a half split top seam and a trace of a price sticker.)

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.
