I Don't Worry About A Thing

LP (Item 78214) Atlantic, 1962 — Condition: Very Good+
Temporarily Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album

❔

One of Mose Allison's first albums for Atlantic – a great set of soulful jazz vocals, done in a rootsy style that has some slight New Orleans touches – and a nice sort of beat undercurrent! The sound of the set follows nicely from Mose's earlier work for Prestige and Columbia – with Mose on piano, plus Addison Farmer on bass and Osie Johnson on drums. The set features 10 tracks in all – including "I Don't Worry About A Thing", "It Didn't Turn Out That Way", "Your Mind Is On Vacation", "Stand By", "Meet Me At No Special Place" and "The Song Is Ended".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

Creek Bank
Prestige, Early 60s. Very Good+
One of Mose's best early albums – even though he hardly gets a chance to sing on it!

Western Man
Atlantic, 1971. Near Mint-
An amazing record by Mose Allison – with some good funky tracks!

Mose Alive
Atlantic, 1966. Sealed
One of Mose's mid 60s albums for Atlantic – recorded live, with a bit more of a hip flair than some of his earlier work for Prestige and Columbia, but still with those great vocals that went onto influence a generation of beatnik jazz singers.

Mose In Your Ear
Atlantic, 1972. Very Good+
It's the early 70s, and Mose is still going strong – grooving with a unique blend of New Orleans soul and Northern jazz influences, his own particular brand of music, timeless from the day it was born!

For Once In My Life
Atlantic, 1967. Very Good

Portrait Of Carmen
Atlantic, 1967. Near Mint-
An excellent album from Carmen McRae – one of her hippest records ever, and a great set of vocal gems that often gets overlooked!

Dusty In Memphis
Atlantic, 1968. Near Mint-

Atlantic, 1975. Near Mint-
Great live work from a near-lost stretch of Mel Torme – a time when he wasn't recording as much as a few years before, but still has a hell of a lot of power in performance! Backings are tight and jazzy – served up by the Al Porcino, with the same punchy approach that Marty Paich gave ... LP, Vinyl record album

Atlantic, 1973. Near Mint-
Sweet 70s funk from the great Oscar Brown – quite a change from his jazz-based work of the 60s, but a great new sitting for all of his wonderful wit and warmth!
