LP (Item 76803) PA USA, 1985 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP


Always-great work from sunny singer Judy Roberts – and an album with some real surprises! The overall sound is perhaps a bit more electric, and a bit smoother than some of Roberts' earlier albums – but given the sweetness of Judy's tone, the style actually works pretty darn nicely to bring out her best qualities. The album features some surprisingly nice covers – like a vocal version of the "Star Trek" theme (?!) that actually sounds pretty great, and a funky take on The Ohio Players' "Sweet Sticky Thing" – next to some even better jazzy numbers, like "Molly's Samba", "Finding Good Rules To Live By", "Rio De Janeiro", and a sublime reading of "Poinciana".

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.

Inner City, 1981. Very Good
A sweet set of vocal tracks from Judy Roberts – a mix of original tunes and a few covers, all done with a warm fusiony style, and plenty of Brazilian touches!

Never Let Me Go
PA USA, 1985. Very Good
A bit less jazz than some of Julie Kelly's other work from the 80s, but still pretty great overall – that kind of California record from the time that doesn't really care if it charts at all – content on its own just to offer a good opportunity to an under-discovered singer!

Sammy belts it out wonderfully on a set of show-stoppers – tunes with Broadway sources, but redone here by Sam with a tight, jazzy finish! The approach makes the record one of his best of the 60s – a really solid set that virtually reinvents each tune – giving them the Davis ... LP, Vinyl record album

Completely enigmatic songs from Lonnie Holley – and completely wonderful music too!

A Swingin Session indeed – as Frank steps out with Nelson Riddle on one of his last great albums for Capitol!
