Strings On Fire

LP (Item 8506) Columbia, Mid 60s — Condition: Near Mint-

What's with the connection between "strings" and "fire"? Seems like it's used on more than a few albums from the time – and always makes us think of buzzing bees or trick violins! Fortunately, Michel Legrand handles the sub-genre with amazing care – bringing in his natural sense of swing and even adding in a few slight jazzy influences. Titles include "Boulevard Of Broken Dreams", "Come Back To Sorrento", "Temptation", "Jezebel", "Tabu", and "Jalousie".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Mono 6 eye Demonstration pressing. Cover has a Demonstration stamp on back.)

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.

A fantastic album – if only for the cover! The record features a rare cover image that's an obscure painting by Salvador Dali – and the back cover features a photo of Jackie and Dali shaking hands! The music's not as surreal as the image, but it's still got this amazingly baroque ... LP, Vinyl record album
