Clap Yo' Hands (aka Hi-Lo's In Stereo)

LP (Item 760153) DRG, Mid 50s — Condition: Near Mint-

Groovy vocal group material from this legendary combo that went onto change the style of harmony vocals for the next 50 years! The group's led by Gene Puerling, who later went onto form the Singers Unlimited for MPS, and the orchestrations are by Frank Comstock – in a line with The Four Freshmen, Beach Boys, and Tamba Trio!  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Early 80s issue.)

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.

Montreux 77
Pablo, 1977. Near Mint-
Ella Fitzgerald swings it nicely with the Tommy Flanagan Trio – a small group on the date for backup, but one who give this Montreux performance almost as much bounce as Ella's 70s live dates with a bigger ensemble!
