Anita

LP (Item 81222) Verve, 1956 — Condition: Very Good+

One of the strongest of Anita's mid 50s outings for Verve – a tightly-crafted set that benefits from some good arrangements from Buddy Bregman! The format is perfect for Anita – giving her little space to have to make decisions, and letting her concentrate on the tone and charm that were always her strongest suit at this point. Soloists include Paul Smith on piano and Barney Kessel on guitar – and titles include "Who Cares", "You're The Top", "Fine & Dandy", "Beautiful Love", "Time After Time", and "No Moon At All".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Mono orange label Verve Records Inc pressing with deep groove. Cover has a bit of gloss peel along the opening, and some surface wear and discoloration from age on 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.

Jackie & Roy

Lovesick
Verve, Mid 60s. Near Mint- Gatefold
Wonderfully groovy work from the team of Jackie Cain & Roy Kral – a set that has the pair moving into much hipper modes for the 60s, and really taking off from the greatness of earlier records! Backing is still by Roy's core trio, with acoustic piano at the lead – but the addition ... LP, Vinyl record album
Verve, Late 50s. Very Good+
An excellent album of vocals by the great Joe Williams! Joe's always been a fine singer, but with Basie, he really gets the backing he needs to do his work the best. And although this album isn't as authenico as it might be, it still comes from a time when Verve really knew how to handle singers ... LP, Vinyl record album

Monica Lewis

Sing It To The Marines
Verve, 1957. Very Good+
The cover of this one might make the album one of the campiest records on Verve – but the session's a surprisingly great one, with a straighter vocal approach than you'd guess! Monica's got a really sweet vocal style – a bit sexy, and certainly adult – arranged here with some ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ella Fitzgerald

Hello Dolly! (2nd cover)
Verve, 1964. Near Mint-
A definite shot at the pop market by Ella Fitzgerald – quite possibly recorded as a follow-up to the 60s success of former singing partner Louis Armstrong, who's referenced nicely in Ella's rendition of the title hit! The first 4 tracks on the set were done in the UK, under the leadership of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Nancy Wilson

Lush Life
Capitol, Late 60s. Near Mint-
Genius work from Nancy Wilson – the kind of Capitol Records gem that was partly jazz, partly soul, and very much in that special territory that made Wilson one of the most mature, sophisticated singers of the 60s! The record's got Nancy working through some material with bluer currents, ... LP, Vinyl record album

My Way
Reprise, 1969. Near Mint-
A standout late 60s set from ol' blue eyes – and a record that gave him one of the last great songs of his career! The title cut's a well-known gem, but the whole thing's pretty sweet – arranged and conducted by Don Costa, and done in that maturing masculine mode Sinatra was hitting at ... LP, Vinyl record album
