Sophisticated Lady EP

7-inch (Item 911640) Liberty, 1962 — Condition: Very Good
(pic cover)

Julie London's got her hair up, and is wearing a classy gown – so you can bet that the feel of the record definitely follows through with the "sophisticated" promise of the title! Things are as mellow as on London's early classics for Liberty, but there's a bit more of an orchestrated feel too – fuller backings that couch her lovely vocals in a near-perfect array of strings – usually quite gentle, and often breaking away to give Julie that personal, solitary space that usually has her singing at her best. Titles include "Sophisticated Lady", "Blame It On My Youth", "Another Old Fashioned Please", "Bewitched", "If I Should Lose You", and "Absent Minded Me".  © 1996-2019, 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.

Airway, Early 70s. Very Good+
A nice local Chicago blues single, cut for the lost Airway label by the great Sunnyland Slim. Very raw sound, with a hard southside blues feel. 7-inch, Vinyl record

Eddy Senay

Safari/Sarko East
Sussex, 1973. Near Mint-
Nice choppy funky guitars from the fuzzy mind of Eddy Senay. "Safari"'s got a nice jungle funk feel, and "Sarko East" is a little bit jazzier. 7-inch, Vinyl record
Karen, Late 60s. Very Good+
Excellent work from one of the best Detroit groups of the 60s! Both tracks move way past their "Cool Jerk" hit – but still have the same fire and soul of that one. Ollie McLaughlin produced, and the whole thing swings nicely! 7-inch, Vinyl record
Cadet, Late 60s. Very Good+
Richard Evans wrote and arranged "Burning Spear" for his Soulful Strings, and the track went onto become one of the biggest hits for Chess in the late 60's. Nice groove, and the trippy version of the Beatles track on the flip is pretty great, too! 7-inch, Vinyl record
Twinight, Late 60s. Very Good
Beautiful original single of Syl's classic track about racial disenfranchisement. The track's filled with deep deep Chicago soul, and it's a stunning set of haunting guitar-based arrangements that are beyond compare! The flip's a nice original, also written by Syl. 7-inch, Vinyl record

Alvin Cash & The Registers

Doin' The Ali Shuffle/Feel So Good
Mar V Lus, Late 60s. Near Mint-
Alvin Cash pays tribute to Cassius Clay – screaming his way through the cut in a way that pre-dates most other Ali tribute songs, grooving away in that hard funky groove that you'd find on his best 60s work. "Feel So Good" is great, too – a heavy R&B stomper with a "T ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Atco, 1972. Near Mint-
Nice stuff by this lost east coast vocal group who recorded one rare album for Atlantic. True Reflection were like other hipper groups of the time – like Soul Generation or The Modulations – in that they had kind of a dope group style, with a bit of a political edge to it.
