St. Louis Blues

LP (Item 681938) RCA/Victor, 1958 — Condition: Very Good-

Backings by Shorty Rogers, arrangements by Matty Matlock, and tunes from the film St Louis Blues!  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Black label mono pressing, with deep groove. Cover has some wear.)

Very Good - (minus)

  • Vinyl may be dirty, and can lack a fair amount of luster.
  • Vinyl can have a number of marks, either in clusters or smaller amounts, but deeper.
  • This is the kind of record that you'd buy to play, but not because it looked that great. Still, the flaws should be mostly cosmetic, with nothing too deep that would ruin the overall record.
  • Examples include a record that has been kept for a while in a cover without the paper sleeve, or heavily played by a previous owner and has some marks across the surface. The record should play okay, though probably with surface noise.

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.

Lee Wiley

West Of The Moon
RCA, 1956. Near Mint-
A great set of torchy ballads from Lee Wiley – a singer who virtually helped invent the genre on record with her classic sets for Columbia Records! This album's done a few years after those – and features backings by Ralph Burns, who brings a fair bit more sentimental moments to his ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jennie Smith

Jennie
RCA, 1957. Very Good
An overlooked vocal session from RCA – recorded in that magical year of 1957, when it seemed the label would never stop putting out great music! Jennie Smith is one of the lesser-known girl singers on the label, but she definitely fits in well with their approach – getting full ... LP, Vinyl record album
RCA, 1958. Very Good+
A wonderful session from 1958 – one that pairs the sexy vocals of Abbe Lane with the mad orchestrations of Sid Ramin! Lane's a singer with a strong ear for jazz, and an equally charming talent for cheesecake – both of which come into play nicely in this set of man-themed tunes! The ... LP, Vinyl record album

Matt Dennis

Dennis Anyone?
RCA, Mid 50s. Very Good
Matt Dennis is best-known to most as the composer of the classic evergreen "Angel Eyes" – but he's also a pretty great singer and piano player, with an easy and hip style that's a lot like Bobby Troup. This album's one of the few he ever cut in this mode – and is a great ... LP, Vinyl record album

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

Nina Simone

Nina Simone & Piano!
RCA, 1969. Near Mint-
A strong back to basics session for Nina, one that featured her piano and vocals only, a very spare approach that was markedly different from her work a few years previously for other labels. Nina's tone on the piano is incredible – and she's working with some striking modern jazz changes ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lurlean Hunter

Lonesome Gal
RCA, 1956. Very Good
Moody set of vocals recorded by this obscure Chicago singer. Lurlean got her start at the classy south side Club DeLisa, home to Sun Ra, and a host of other Chicago talents – but by the time of this recording, she'd moved downtown, and had become a classy smoky voiced singer with a good ...

Shirley Horn

Where Are You Going?
Perception, 1972. Near Mint-
A beautiful lost album by Shirley Horn, and unlike anything else she's ever done. Recorded in a period of obscurity, this LP features a stunning range of material, such as the cuts "Consequences of a Drug Addict Role", a haunting 10 minute mood piece on addiction, "L.A. ... LP, Vinyl record album
Verve, Late 50s. Near Mint-
An excellent album of vocals by the great Joe Williams! Joe's always been a fine singer, but with Basie, he really gets the backing he needs to do his work the best. And although this album isn't as authenico as it might be, it still comes from a time when Verve really knew how to handle singers ... LP, Vinyl record album
