LP (Item 76803) PA USA, 1985 — Condition: Very Good+
$11.99 ...

LP, Vinyl record album

(€10.61 || £9.02 || ¥1198) (approx.)

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".

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.

Commentary, 1957. Very Good+
Fantastic stuff – and a key example of the penetration of psychoanalysis in the US during the postwar years! The tunes here are all vocal parodies of familiar themes from Freud – sung by Katie Lee in a way that's a bit jazz, but possibly a bit folksy too – very playful at times, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Hello Amigos
RCA, 1960. Very Good
A very unique outing – a set that mixes the sweet harmonies of The Ames Brothers with wild backings from Esquivel! Most of the tracks are in Spanish, and have Esquivel doing a standard Latin sound, but which also approaches his own solo work in some of the more unusual moments! LP, Vinyl record album

Good Morning Kiss
Blackhawk, 1985. Very Good
A fantastic record – one of the best jazz vocal records of the 80s, and a real bright spot in an otherwise dim decade! The set is Carmen's debut – and it's a masterful self-produced effort that immediately put her in the ranks of the ultra-hip, ultra-soulful jazz crowd – singers ... LP, Vinyl record album
