Evening With Harry Belafonte & Miriam Makeba

LP (Item 780410) RCA, 1965 — Condition: Very Good+
Hipper than you might expect – thanks to arrangements by South African jazzman Jonas Gwangwa!  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Jamaican black label stereo pressing in a US cover. Cover has some aging, a foil RCA sticker in front, some gloss peel at the opening, and some sticker remnants and writing in pen in back.)

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.

Teddi King

Girl & Her Songs
RCA, 1957. Very Good
One of the few RCA albums cut by singer Teddi King – a great vocalist who came out of a small jazz group setting, but who works equally well here with larger arrangements from George Siravo!

Lonesome Gal
RCA, 1956. Very Good
Moody set of vocals recorded by this obscure Chicago singer.

Jackie & Roy

High Standards
Concord, 1982. Near Mint-
These guys never miss! For years, we'd always passed up the later work of Jackie & Roy – thinking, in our elitist minds, that only their early work was worth merit. But this session from 1982 proves how wrong we were – as it's a stellar batch of small group tracks – sung in ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ol' Mose manages to keep his cool, even in the 70s – laying down some great small combo work with Joe Farrell and Al Cohn each playing a bit of tenor! That Allison vocal approach is right on the money – and titles include "Your Molecular Structure", "If You Only ... LP, Vinyl record album
