Love Is A Kick

LP (Item 712173) Columbia, Late 40s — Condition: Very Good+

Love is definitely a kick in the hands of Frank Sinatra – especially when handled by some swinging gems from his early years at Columbia Records! This collection's a bit more upbeat than some of the full albums that Columbia issued of earlier singles in the 50s – and focuses on the kind of swing-era gems that Frank would later record for Capitol with Billy May – but which are offered up here in original versions from the time when the tunes were still burning up the charts. Sinatra's young voice is already surprisingly full of power and feeling – and titles include "Saturday Night", "Should I", "American Beauty Rose", "Five Minutes More", "When You're Smiling", "Bim Bam Baby", and "You Do Something To Me".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(6 eye pressing with deep groove.)

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.
