Mercury Years (10 inch LP)

LP (Item 922363) Mercury, Late 40s — Condition: Near Mint-

Early work by Tony Martin – with titles that include "To Each His Own", "That Old Black Magic", "I'll See You In My Dreams", "Guilty", and "Body & Soul".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has light wear, but is in great shape overall.)

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.

New Scene
Mercury, 1966. Very Good+

Miyoshi
Mercury, Late 50s. Very Good+
An obscure one – but pretty darn nice! Miyoshi is a Japanese vocalist who sings in English – ala Pat Suzuki – and like Suzuki, she's got a swinging way with a tune, mixing together strands of jazz and show styles in a loungey style that's a lot more compelling than you'd think. ...

Make Love to Me
Liberty, 1957. Very Good
Hard to imagine that Julie London would ever have to ask anyone to make love to her – at least not when she looks as sexy as this on the cover!
