Dinah '63

LP (Item 80572) Roulette, 1963 — Condition: Very Good

Dinah follows up her Dinah 62 set with an equally well-done set of tracks for 1963! The album's got that great, late Dinah Washington sound – that boozy style with heavy arrangements that she used often at Roulette, and which really seemed to help ease her vocals into a more modern setting. Backings are by Fred Norman, the album's got impeccable production from Henry Glover, and titles include "Make Someone Happy", "Take Me In Your Arms", "Why Was I Born", "In San Francisco", "Bill", and "There Must Be A Way".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.

Dinah (Emarcy)
EmArcy, 1956. Very Good-
A great little small group session for Dinah Washington – more jazz-based than some of her earlier or later work, sung with a small combo that includes Wynton Kelly on piano, Georgie Auld on tenor, and Herb Geller on alto. Tracks include "Look To The Rainbow", "Goodbye", ... LP, Vinyl record album

In The Land Of Hi Fi
EmArcy, Mid 50s. Very Good
The Hi Fi in the title might imply that there's a bit more going on here arrangement-wise than on some of Dinah's other albums – but the scoring by Hal Mooney is still pretty straight, in a sophisticated jazzy mode that works best with the vocals, and which never overwhelms the singing for ...

Sing Along With Basie
Roulette, 1958. Near Mint-
One of the more obscure albums by Lambert, Hendricks, and Ross – a session of Basie tunes, performed with backing by the Count, plus additional lead vocals by Joe Williams, the voice most closely associated with the Basie group at the time! The style is similar to the trio's Sing A Song Of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Roulette, Early 60s. Very Good
A great debut from singer Wanda Stafford – and the kind of set that makes you think she's been recording albums like this for years!

Chris Connor

Free Spirits
Atlantic, 1962. Near Mint-
Amazing stuff – and one of Chris Connor's greatest records for Atlantic! There's a depth to this set that passes some of her others from the time – partially because the album features a very hip set of tunes, written by Ornette Coleman, Norman Mapp, John Lewis, Peggy Lee, and others ...

Johnny Hartman

All Of Me
Bethlehem, 1956. Very Good+
Although the world always remembers Johnny Hartman best for his Impulse recordings with Coltrane, we've always dug some of his earlier stuff – like this album – because the sound's a bit rawer, and the style's got more of a kick! The magical Hartman voice is presented in two great ... LP, Vinyl record album
