Music For The Boy Friend – He Really Digs Jazz

LP (Item 758145) Decca, 1957 — Condition: Near Mint-
Features Tommy Dorsey, Woody Herman, and John Graas – in a classic Norman Petty cover!  © 1996-2024, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Mono black label pressing. Cover has light wear, half split top seam, and some yellowing from age in back.)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor 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.

The first and loosest of the Jazz Studio series from the 50s – an quite possibly the most Verve-like too.

Not really a set of solo cello work, but one of the rare few albums made by Fred Katz as a leader – right around the time he was making big waves with Chico Hamilton! The cello's definitely in the lead here – both plucked and bowed by Fred – and other players are likely LA ... LP, Vinyl record album

Incredible work from saxophonist John Handy – an extended performance from the Monterey Jazz Festival in 1965, and a set that shows that he's grown tremendously as an artist since his early recordings for Roulette!

A session originally issued under the name of Curtis Fuller – titled Boss Of The Soul Stream Trombone!
