Al Hibbler Remembers

LP (Item 775872) Decca, 1958 — Condition: Near Mint-

(Stereo pressing.)

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.

Al Hibbler

Early One Morning
LMI, 1964. Very Good
Late work from Al Hibbler – and pretty darn hip stuff, recorded with the Roland Hanna trio, in a very different mode than his work in the 50s! Al's still got that deeper than deep vocal style here, but the arrangements swing a bit more than usual, and the trio-only backing gives the tunes a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Decca, 1954. Sealed 5LP Box Set
A really amazing set – a real standout, even in the career of Bing Crosby! The package was put together in 1954 – after Bing had been a solo act for over 20 years – and it features Crosby re-recording many of his classics, with cool small combo backing from the Buddy Cole trio on ...

Jeri Southern

Southern Style
Decca, 1955. Very Good
The Southern Style here is a great one – a small jazz combo approach to backings, with Jeri on piano, supported by just a bit of bass and drums! This sort of mellow, intimate album was rare for a singer of Southern's stature at the time – and Jeri takes keen advantage of it in her ... LP, Vinyl record album

Mabel Mercer

Mabel Mercer Sings
Decca, Late 50s. Very Good
A great little record, thanks to arrangements from Ralph Burns – who gives Mabel a hipper style than on her records for Atlantic! Titles include "Ballad Of The Sad Young Men", "Once Upon A Time", "Mira", "Year After Year", "Trouble Comes", ... LP, Vinyl record album

... LP, Vinyl record album
Columbia, 1955. Very Good
One of our favorite vocal albums of the 50s – an incredibly witty live set from Noel Coward, recorded in Las Vegas, with a very different style than some of his other records! The Noel Coward you'll hear here is still steeped in the mannered wit of his earlier plays, but he's also let ... LP, Vinyl record album

Carmen McRae

For Once In My Life
Atlantic, 1967. Near Mint-
Carmen McRae gets some very groovy backing here from British maestro Johnny Keating – who helps her find a whole new sound through his wonderful arrangements on the set! The overall sound is relatively mellow, but still pretty great – all adult, and filled with unusual instrumental ... LP, Vinyl record album
