Around The World In Percussion – Romantic Sounds From Romantic Places

LP (Item 664465) Somerset, Late 50s — Condition: Near Mint-

(Stereo Fidelity pressing.)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor 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.

Capitol, 1955. Very Good-
A real classic from Jackie Gleason – and a record that's probably the most outward statement of his big reputation as a booze hound! The set's got all the sadness and melancholy you'd expect from the title – a wonderfully dreamy batch of instrumental tunes that are about as lush as ... LP, Vinyl record album

Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass

Sounds Like Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass
A&M, 1967. Near Mint-
Sounds like Herb Alpert, but it grooves in ways that we hardly expected – playful, creative, and filled with so many more rhythms than just the Tijuana groove we might have thought! There's a real deepening sense of instrumental pop going on here – as Herb explores some of the darker ... LP, Vinyl record album

Kirby Stone Four

Baubles, Bangles & Beads
Columbia, 1958. Very Good+
The Kirby Stone Four were not always as right-on as other vocal quartets of their time, like the Four Freshmen or Hi-Lo's – but this album is one of their best, and features the group grooving in a tight harmony sound, with little of the "comedy" that sometimes mars other albums. ...

Kirby Stone Four

Go Sound
Columbia, 1959. Very Good
The Kirby Stone Four took the jazz vocal harmony style of groups like the Four Freshmen or The Hi Los, and they punched it up a bit, adding in a bit of humor and showmanship, in a mode that made them very popular with the live audiences in the Nevada clubs that were often their home turf. LP, Vinyl record album
Columbia, Early 70s. Near Mint-
Walter Carlos (now Wendy) performs electronic versions of many classics on the Moog. If nothing else, this is an interesting period piece, though on a certain level we're quite fond of it, oth in it's performance and it's motivation. Moogy takes of Monteverdi's "Orfeo" suite, several ... LP, Vinyl record album

Nelson Riddle

Sing A Song With Riddle
Capitol, Late 50s. Very Good Gatefold
Karaoke old school style. Kind of like a Jamie Aebersold album, with a full book of music and lyrics, so that you can play or sing along to Nelson Riddle's orchestrations. Pretend you're Sinatra, Nat Cole, Judy Garland or Dinah Shore on numbers like "Darn That Dream", "Day In, Day ... LP, Vinyl record album

Command (Mexico), 1963. Very Good Gatefold
Enoch and his orchestra play a mix of Brazilian bossa nova standards like "O Barquinho" and "Meditacao" and pop tunes played in a bossa nova style like "Days Of Wine And Roses", "Moon River", "What Kind Of Fool Am I", "Blame It On The Bossa ... LP, Vinyl record album

Brenda & The Tabulations

Dry Your Eyes
Dionn, 1967. Sealed
Incredible early work from Brenda & The Tabulations – one of the best male/female soul groups of their era, yet one that's often sadly overlooked! This album will more than display why the group are so great – as they have a unique quality that's soft and sweet, yet also deeply ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ramon Marquez

Ritmo Sabroso
Musart, 1957. Very Good
Ramon Marquez and his orchestra run through a set of cha cha cha's and mambos, with vocals on most of the cuts. Tracks include "Cachita", "Los Bomberos", "El Negrito Del Batey", "Totiri Mundachi", and "Tumbae". LP, Vinyl record album
