Shelly

LP (Item 706708) Colpix, 1962 — Condition: Very Good-

The lovely Shelly Fabares was first a star on the TV screen, but she turned out to be a hell of a pop talent as well – really just the right sort of personality for dreamy little tunes in the style of Joanie Summers at the time! Production is full and rich – handled by the great Stu Phillips, who backs up Shelly with so much great guitar, electric bass, and stepping strings – there's almost hardly a need for the singer to do anything but just open her mouth, let the words flow, and watch the echo in the studio take over! And yes, the approach was often overdone at the time – but Phillips is a real maestro here, and manages to unlock this undercurrent of sexiness in Shelly's voice that's very different than her presence on the small screen – almost as if he's the Lee Hazlewood to her Nancy Sinatra. Titles include the hit "Johnny Angel", plus "Funny Face", "It's Been A Long Long Time", "Very Unlikely", "I'm Growing Up", and "Love Letters".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

Silver Metre

Silver Metre
National General, Early 70s. Very Good Gatefold
Pretty heavy rock from this early 70s British group – following very heavily in a Cream mode, with lots of deep bass, fuzzy guitars, and some kicking drums that almost sound like they might give out the odd break or two! Vocals are a bit tortured and a bit bluesy – but not bad overall, ... LP, Vinyl record album

RCA, 1976. Very Good
Lou Reed's maybe a bit more subtle here than during his years with the Velvet Underground, and his earliest solo records – but he also has this new sort of maturity that really points the way forward to the years to come! Coney Island Baby further marks the continuing legacy of Lou Reed as a ... LP, Vinyl record album

John Lennon & Yoko Ono/Plastic Ono Band

Some Time In New York City
Apple, 1972. Very Good 2LP Gatefold
The most polarizing of John Lennon's post Beatles ouvre – the strident, Spector-produced, sprawling mess that is Some Time In New York City – a record that has too much of every idea John & Yoko had at the time, which makes it all the more fascinating after all these years! Angry, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Booker T & The MGs

Booker T Set
Stax, 1969. Very Good
Later work from Booker T and crew – an album that always gets lost in the shuffle, but which also includes lots of great moments, and a bit more funk than in earlier years! The rhythm section's loosening up a bit on the set – led by the mighty Al Jackson, and working past that tight ... LP, Vinyl record album

Stylistics

Rockin' Roll Baby
Avco, 1973. Very Good
The third album by The Stylistics – and a set that's still very much in the high-harmony territory of their first two classics! Thom Bell's still very firmly on deck this time around – arranging, producing, and writing a good deal of the material too – and the Sigma Sound ... LP, Vinyl record album

Rasputin Stash

Devil Made Me Do It
Gemigo, 1974. Very Good
A fantastic second album from Rasputin Stash – a group who started out on Atlantic Records as a big ensemble with a pretty freaky, fuzzy sound – but one who emerge here with a sweet mix of funk and soul that's perfect for their placement on this mid-70s offshoot of Curtom Records! The ... LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny Bristol

Hang On In There Baby
MGM, 1974. Very Good
The first solo album from Johnny Bristol – a genius soul talent who did a bunch of great work for Motown as a writer and arranger, breaking out here on his own!
