Sheer Ecstasy

LP (Item 6674) Warner, 1960 — Condition: Very Good+

The subtitle for this says "The Luxuriously Slow Moods of...", and it's right! Despite a racy nude on the cover, reclining on a cool chair and smelling a flower, this music is more sleepy than sexy. Still, it's got the rich Cesana sound to it, with banks of strings banking nicely around some moody tracks.  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Mono pressing with deep groove. Cover has a small sticker on one corner and some light wear.)

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.

Dick Hyman

Age Of Electronicus
Command, 1969. Very Good+ Gatefold
One of the all-time great moog albums of the 60s – served up by pianist Dick Hyman, who'd cut a fair bit of more standard material in the years before – but who also turned out to be a wizard with the new electric instrument, helping it to find a very fresh sound! Unlike some of the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Yma Sumac

Mambo!
Capitol, 1954. Very Good
Quite possibly our favorite album ever by the enigmatic Yma Sumac – thanks to some lively arrangements by Billy May, who gives the set a swinging jazzy groove!

Fantastic work by maestro Burt Bacharach – subtle genius, and an album that offers more to us every time we listen to it!

Henry Mancini

Blues & The Beat
RCA, 1960. Very Good+
This is a pretty jazzy record compared to the usual Mancini soundtrack-type stuff. It's mostly mellow the whole way through and has some very nice moments due to the quality of the playing. His orchestra includes such folks as Pete Condoli on trumpet, Dick Nash on trombone, Johnny Williams on piano ... LP, Vinyl record album

Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass

SRO
A&M, 1966. Very Good+
A standing room ovation in the A&M Studios – certainly the kind of reception we'd imagine Herb would get during these glory years of his career!
