Avec Josephine Baker (10 inch LP)

LP (Item 916918) Mercury, Early 50s — Condition: Very Good

(Cover has some light wear, and a piece of black tape in one corner.)

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.

Kenny Rankin

Mind Dusters
Mercury, 1967. Sealed
A brilliant record – Kenny Rankin's first, and a really unique mix of styles that's completely different from his more famous later albums! The album has a gentle folksy style with touches of jazz – a bit like some of Tim Hardin's work for Verve, but without as much of a sad loser ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sarah Vaughan

Magic Of Sarah Vaughan
Mercury, Early 60s. Very Good
Plenty of magic here – a record with a different sound than some of Sarah Vaughan's earlier work – but one that's still pretty great! The backings here bring in plenty of strings, and a bit of voices – going for a full feel that's a bit like some of the country soul albums of the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Although mostly known for her 50's Latin recordings with Tito Puente and Xavier Cugat, Abbe Lane emerges here in the mid 60s, on an album of "many sides", with arrangements by Hal Mooney. The track list is about as erratic as Abbe's photos on the cover, a strange montage of shots that ... LP, Vinyl record album

Vaughan With Voices
Mercury, 1963. Very Good+
An unusual album for Sarah Vaughan, but a compelling one too – a set recorded in Copehagen with some Danish singers in the background – providing a pillowy cushion behind Sarah's lead, in ways that make for a wonderfully mellow record! Orchestrations are by Robert Farnon, who works ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ernestine Anderson

Fascinating Ernestine
Mercury, Late 50s. Near Mint-
A great slice of work from the early years of Ernestine Anderson – one of her key swingers for Mercury, and the kind of record that should have made her huge at the time! There's a hip-stepping quality here that points nicely towards the 60s – a bit more of a bounce in the backings, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Tell Me The Truth
Arista, 1975. Very Good+
One of the greatest records ever by Jon Hendricks – one of our favorite male jazz singers of all time! The album's an obscure 70s session that features Jon opening up from earlier days – moving into a bit of soul, a bit of funk, yet still keeping things really strong on the jazz tip. ...

Kitty White

Sweet Talk
Roulette, 1958. Very Good
One of the fullest-staffed albums ever recorded by Kitty White – but a set that still gives her plenty private, personal space!
