Portrait Of Farnon

LP (Item 915916) Decca (UK), 1972 — Condition: Near Mint-

A set of originals by this British maestro – also known for his soundtrack and sound library work! Titles include "Lazy Day", "Melody Fair", "Jumping Bean", "Manhattan Playboy", "Westminster Waltz", and "Portrait Of A Flirt".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

Beyond The Reef
Decca, 1962. Very Good
Overlooked genius from keyboardist Earl Grant – a player who could straddle so many styles at once, and who had a sly but subtle influence on jazz, soul, and instrumental pop in the 60s! This album's got all the echoes of Grant's style at its best – slight touches of exotica, a mix of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Seven Dreams
Decca, 1953. Very Good+

Time For Young Love
Decca, Late 60s. Sealed
One of the few American releases by Mike Leander – the groovy 60s British arranger who skirted equal worlds of rock and easy! Leander's got a hip approach that's got plenty of late 60s psyche touches bubbling out underneath more straightforward arrangements – working some easy magic on ... LP, Vinyl record album

Epic, Late 60s. Very Good+
A very early album by this seminal songwriter from the late 60s! The record's the first we can find by Jimmy, and it's got him singing in a kind of pop vocalist style, with arrangements by Hank Levine, and backing on some tracks by a small vocal group. The record lacks the off-beat hipness of his ... LP, Vinyl record album

Happy Moog
Pickwick, Late 60s. Near Mint-
Man, this moog sure is happy! And who wouldn't be? The groovy lil' instrument's got some excellent backings here – all spare, rhythmic, and filled with cool electronic effects. The overall level of the electronics is more sophisticated than Perry-Kingsley, but in the end the sound is ... LP, Vinyl record album
