New Charlie Ventura In Hi-Fi

LP (Item 738685) Baton, 1956 — Condition: Very Good+

An unusual small label outing from tenor great Charlie Ventura – one that features Billy Bean on guitar, Dave Hildinger on piano, Mousie Alexander on drums, and a very young Richard Davis on bass! Titles include "Jazz Roost", "Parlay 2", "East Of Suez", "Bernie's Tune", "Charlie's Ant", and "High On An Open Mike".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Back cover has some wear and aging.)

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.

In Square Circle
Tamla, 1985. Very Good Gatefold
Mid 80s, and while never that bad (nothing Stevie does is ever terrible – well, except for "Don't Drive Drunk"!), the record lacks that certain greatness that you'll find on even the lesser Stevie Wonder albums. Titles include "Stranger On The Shore Of Love", "Spiritu ... LP, Vinyl record album
