Two Sides of Leonard Nimoy

LP (Item 8404) Dot, Late 60s — Condition: Very Good-

Great stuff from Leonard Nimoy – one of his best records, largely because he's upfront about the Spock side of his persona! As is well known, Nimoy really thought of himself as more of a serious singer than just a pointy-eared alien – so other records have a lot more of him singing straight pop numbers. This one, though, actually features about half Spock material – a full side of goofy sci-fi numbers like "The Difference Between Us", "Amphibious Assault", "Highly Illogical" and "Spock Thoughts". The other side still has some nice pop tunes – including a great reading of "If I Were A Carpenter", plus "Cotton Candy", "The Ballad Of Bilbo Baggins", and "Love Of The Common People".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Stereo pressing with deep groove. Cover has ring and edge wear, split bottom seam, and is bent a bit at the corners.)

Very Good - (minus)

  • Vinyl may be dirty, and can lack a fair amount of luster.
  • Vinyl can have a number of marks, either in clusters or smaller amounts, but deeper.
  • This is the kind of record that you'd buy to play, but not because it looked that great. Still, the flaws should be mostly cosmetic, with nothing too deep that would ruin the overall record.
  • Examples include a record that has been kept for a while in a cover without the paper sleeve, or heavily played by a previous owner and has some marks across the surface. The record should play okay, though probably with surface noise.

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.

Easy Does It
Dot, 1957. Sealed
We have to admit, we don't know Easy Williams at all – but with a name like that, we're willing to try! More seriously, though, the album's a great one – a cool little small combo vocal session, recorded with a group that includes vibes, guitar, and flute – backing Easy up like ...

Open (aka Jools)
Atco, 1968. Very Good+ Gatefold
Great stuff – one of the amazing early albums from the team of Julie Driscoll and Brian Auger – kind of a next-generation to the Brit beat group sound of the mid 60s – one that moves beyond simple R&B modes, to bring in more sophisticated soul and jazz touches! Driscoll's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Quite a popular live album from Ella – recorded in Berlin at the height of the cold war years – featuring a famous recording of "Mack The Knife" that almost blew away Bobby Darin's hit with the cut!

Gypsy
World Pacific, 1962. Very Good
A tremendous album from Annie Ross – a new recording of songs from the musical Gypsy, done in versions that are far superior to any that you may have previously heard! Backings are by Buddy Bregman, and Annie's cool and swinging vocals really works magic with tunes like "Some ... LP, Vinyl record album
Marterry/Argo, 1956. Very Good
Very obscure work by Al Hibbler – a collection issued in the 50s, but which appears to include work from earlier years, as the style and sound varies a bit from track to track. The set likely brings together material that was issued on singles, at a time when Hibbler's star was really rising ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jeannie Cheatham & Jimmy Cheatham

Sweet Baby Blues
Concord, 1984. Very Good+
A sweetly stepping session of bluesy jazz vocals from Jeannie Cheatham – outwardly a trad-oriented record, but done here with some nice light west coast touches that really capture the best of the Concord groove of the early 80s. There's a gentle swing to the tracks that reminds us of some ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bouquet Of Blues
RCA, 1956. Near Mint-
Dinah Shore's definitely got a bouquet of blues here – thanks to some backings that echo the moody, late nite image on the cover! The set's one of Shore's most blue-hued ever – a surprisingly beautiful little record that features orchestrations from Henri Rene, Frank DeVol, and Harry ... LP, Vinyl record album

Inner City, 1977. Near Mint-
One of our favorite albums ever from Eddie Jefferson – one of the last sessions he ever recorded as a leader, and a stone cooker through and through!

Capitol, Late 60s. Near Mint-
A self-titled set from Nancy Wilson – and a record that definitely lives up to everything the Nancy name meant at the end of the 60s!
