Happy Sounds

LP (Item 656087) Roulette, 1960s — Condition: Very Good+

...

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.

Joe Williams & Lambert, Hendricks & Ross

Sing Along With Basie
Roulette, 1958. Near Mint-
One of the more obscure albums by Lambert, Hendricks, and Ross – a session of Basie tunes, performed with backing by the Count, plus additional lead vocals by Joe Williams, the voice most closely associated with the Basie group at the time! The style is similar to the trio's Sing A Song Of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sarah Vaughan

Snowbound
Roulette, Early 60s. Very Good
Beautiful later work from Sarah! Although it's easy to think that she "sold out" by making albums like this for Roulette – with a larger backing than before, and more of a pop feel – these albums are also incredible, and feature a sophisticated sense of interpretation we ... LP, Vinyl record album

Kitty White

Sweet Talk
Roulette, 1958. Very Good
One of the fullest-staffed albums ever recorded by Kitty White – but a set that still gives her plenty private, personal space! The album features different groupings of players who include Benny Carter on alto, Ted Nash on tenor and flute, Harry Edison on trumpet, Larry Bunker on vibes, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Pearl Bailey

Sings For Adults Only
Roulette, 1957. Near Mint-
Not as "adult" as you might think – at least given the way the word is used today – but pretty great work by Pearl nonetheless! The tunes themselves are a bit "blue" in terms of subject matter – tales of girls with hot pants, loose love, and the kind of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Cha Cha Italiana
Roulette, Early 60s. Near Mint-
... LP, Vinyl record album
Capitol, 1966. Very Good+
Broadway material – but given the Nancy Wilson twist – and sung in a mode that's a lot more soulful than other records of its type! Nancy's at her strong early Capitol best here – working with arranger Sid Feller in a set of tunes that get some nice syncopation and jazzy ... LP, Vinyl record album

Della Reese

Black Is Beautiful
Avco, Early 70s. Very Good+ Gatefold
A pretty darn hip album from Della Reese – certainly her funkiest, with a strong mixture of soul and jazz that reminds us a lot of some of the Esther Philips albums on Kudu. Arrangements are by Peter Myers and Bobby Bryant, with "sweetening arrangements" by Sammy Lowe, who we ... LP, Vinyl record album

Nina Simone

Emergency Ward!
RCA, 1972. Very Good
A great little album cut by Nina Simone during the time she was working with Weldon Irvine – a live album that really has the lady stretching out, and showing off all the cool, complicated grooves she brought to a concert setting! Weldon did the arrangements, and they've got a very righteous ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sarah Vaughan & Billy Eckstine

Sing The Best Of Irving Berlin
EmArcy, 1957. Very Good
A great album that pairs these two great singers together for some of Berlin's popular tunes. They're accompanied by a full orchestra and the singers compliment each other nicely especially where Vaughan can match Eckstine's low tones. The tracks include "Isn't This A Lovely Day", "Al ...

Gloria Lynne

I'm Glad There Is You
Everest, 1960. Very Good
One of Gloria's most jazz-oriented albums – featuring small combo backing from the Earl May trio, with Herman Foster on piano, Grasella Oliphant on drums, and May on bass. Tracks are sweetly done, and titles include "Stella By Starlight", "All Night Long", "Young ... LP, Vinyl record album
