Stolen Moments

LP (Item 6970) Muse, 1978 — Condition: Very Good+

One of his best for Muse, with a beautiful set of jazzy vocal grooves that includes his reading of "Stolen Moments" (later made famous by United Future Organization), plus "D.C. Farewell" and an excellent version of "Waters of March". Warm and breezy, with that perfect style that Murphy had for a brief while in the 70s – and which has continued to be such a huge influence on groovers today!  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

Fontana, 1965. Very Good+
A rare British session from vocalist Mark Murphy – and one of his grooviest albums of the 60s! Mark's working here with great backings from the orchestras of Tubby Hayes, John Dankworth, and Les Reed – all of whom give Murphy some of his hippest grooves to date, very much in the mode ... LP, Vinyl record album
Muse, 1980. Very Good+
Mark Murphy magic for Muse – a great little record that has the singer working in wonderfully warm company – a great group of players, and an assortment of excellent tunes! The album moves nicely between the more obscure numbers we always love from Murphy and a few familiar standards ... LP, Vinyl record album
Commodore, Late 40s. Near Mint-
A full LP that compiles Billie's famous sides for the Commodore label in New York – recorded between 1939 and 1944, with accompaniment by the Eddy Heywood group and/or orchestra, plus additional sides led by pianist Sonny White. Titles include "Strange Fruit" (the original 1939 ... LP, Vinyl record album

Hi-Lo's

Love Nest
Columbia, Late 50s. Near Mint-
One of the Hi Los dreamiest albums – a gentle batch of ballads and love tunes, conducted by Frank Comstock with a gentle, late nite approach. The style's not as dramatic or showy as some of the group's other albums of the time, but it does make for a really wonderful set – pillowy soft ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lena Horne

Stormy Weather
RCA, 1957. Near Mint-
One of Lena Horne's greatest albums of the 50s – a rock-solid effort that takes its name from her famous film appearance of the 40s, but which features some wonderfully sophisticated songs in a very postwar mode! As with other RCA dates of the time, the orchestra's handled by Lena's partner ... LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny Hartman

Once In Every Life
Beehive, 1980. Near Mint-
A superb album from vocalist Johnny Hartman – a later date, but one that we'd rank right up there with his important Impulse Records material of the 60s! In fact, the album's something of a return to greatness for Hartman – the kind of date that should have become a jazz standard, had ... LP, Vinyl record album
Verve, Late 60s. Near Mint-

Rosemary Clooney & Woody Herman

My Buddy
Concord, 1983. Near Mint-
... LP, Vinyl record album
Philips, 1964. Very Good+
Classic Nina – recorded live on a variety of familiar numbers, but in that incredible mode that always transforms songs completely, lifting them from their roots and turning them into amazingly fierce proclamations of power and emotion! The tracks are longish, at a level that allows for a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Rosemary Clooney with Duke Ellington

Blue Rose
Columbia, 1956. Very Good+
Fantastic stuff, and proof that Rosemary Clooney was always one heck of a great singer – with strengths in jazz that you didn't always hear in her pop work! As you'd guess from the cover, Duke Ellington's leading the group on the album – and most of the tracks here are older Ellington ... LP, Vinyl record album

Brian Auger

Straight Ahead
RCA, 1974. Very Good+
Long lean groovers from Brian Auger and the Oblivion Express group – recorded with a slightly freer feel than some of the group's earlier albums, and an approach that has them stretching out nicely! Brian still sings a bit on some tracks, but there seems to be more of a focus than before on ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gene Ammons

Boss Is Back!
Prestige, 1969. Near Mint-
In "back", the title is pointing to the fact that Gene Ammons is back on the scene, after being released from 7 years of a tragic 15 year narcotics sentence in prison. The album marks a proud return for Jug – who'd not recorded since a very successful flurry of sides recorded in ... LP, Vinyl record album
