If You Want This Love

LP (Item 76407) Aura, Mid 60s — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.80 38

Bluesy vocals from Sonny Knight – a great little singer with a style that's a bit like some of Johnny Guitar Watson's early work! There's kind of rasp, or catch in Sonny's singing style – making the tunes sound really heartfelt and personal – a factor that's increased even more by the album's strong orchestrations by Bobby Smith. Bobby scored for Gloria Lynne back in the 60s, and the music on this set has a similar blend of strings and soul, with a nice touch of jazz. Titles include "Love Me", "Coldest Cat In Town", "I Need Your Love", "Confidential", and "I Just Called To Say Hello". (Cover has a split top seam & some wear.)  © 1996-2016, Dusty Groove, Inc.

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.

Used Vinyl Grades

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, please note that all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:

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.

A surprisingly dark, smoky set of tunes from Rosemary Clooney – a rare set for Reprise, and her last new LP to appear until the late 70s!
