Harold Arlen's Songs

LP (Item 717337) Audiophile, 1983 — Condition: Very Good+

A rare vocal outing from Richard Rodney Bennett – known mostly as a composer and pianist!  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Front cover appears to be autographed by Bennett, too. Bottom corner of cover has a small stain.)

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.

This One's For Tedi
Audiophile, 1980. Near Mint-
One of the last albums that Johnny Hartman recorded in his all-too-short career – and a relatively laidback session that really shows his talents with a ballad! All tunes here have that magnificent Hartman vocal approach firmly in place – that deep-toned, mellifluous style that really ... LP, Vinyl record album

A surprisingly great set of tracks by the sexy Michele Lee – arranged and conducted by Bill Justis with a sweetly groovy 60s bounce that sets the work apart from her sides for her work in films.

How Will I Remember You?
Discovery, 1977. Very Good
A great album from the late 70's, featuring the excellent jazz vocalist backed by a totally tight group led by Gildo Mahones. The sound is deep and loud, and there's some nice phat bass on here, particularly on the intro to "Baltimore Oriole", which has a nice break sound at the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Columbia, Late 50s. Very Good
Dreamy harmony jazz from the great Hi-Los – one of the hippest groups of the 50s, with a sweet quartet approach similar to The Four Freshmen, and which had a huge effect on pop in the 60s! The tunes on the set feature the group working with Frank Comstock – in an amazing style that ... LP, Vinyl record album

Johnnie Ray with Billy Taylor Trio

Til Morning
Columbia, Late 50s. Very Good+
The fragile genius of Johnnie Ray is beyond compare! Johnnie had this weird wispy voice that was quite uncommon for male singers of the time (although it probably paved the way for countless falsetto acts of the past two decades) – and his strange way of putting over a song was often ...

One of the greatest records ever recorded by vocalist Lorez Alexandria – and a perfect summation of her rich talents as a singer!
