This Is My Love

LP (Item 849775) Columbia (Japan), 1975 — Condition: Near Mint-

One of the most sad-eyed covers we've ever seen from Japanese singer Kimiko Kasai – but a sweet little record that's one of her most soulful sessions of the 70s! The set's done in collaboration with the great Bobby Scott – who also plays some excellent Fender Rhodes on the record, and brings in lots of soulful touches in just the right places – a mode that rivals, but which is very different than, Kimiko's famous work with Herbie Hancock! Other jazz players really illuminate the backings too – including Stan Getz on tenor, who gets in some great solos – as well as Lee Konitz on alto and Joe Beck on guitar. Titles include a famous funky take on Bill Withers' "Use Me" – plus "Happy Together", "Little Things", "The Lamp Is Low", "Roses & Roses", and "Love For Sale".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Includes insert!)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor 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.

One of the greatest Bobby Darin albums ever!
