Jeri – Jeri Southern Sings (10 inch LP)

LP (Item 930898) Candelite, Early 50s — Condition: Near Mint-

Obscure work from the great Jeri Southern – titles that include "Down With Love", "Crazy He Calls Me", "Everything But You", "This Time The Dream's On Me", "It's D'Lovely", and "September In The Rain".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Nice Japanese 10" pressing – on Norma!)

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.

Capitol, Late 50s. Near Mint-
A set of lovely, beautiful vocals from Jeri – with good natured, brass flavored arrangements by Billy May – excellently done, with a variety of moods from sweet and playful, to grand and romantic. Great stuff! Titles include "Don't Look At Me That Way", "Get Out Of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jeri Southern

Southern Style
Decca, 1955. Very Good
The Southern Style here is a great one – a small jazz combo approach to backings, with Jeri on piano, supported by just a bit of bass and drums! This sort of mellow, intimate album was rare for a singer of Southern's stature at the time – and Jeri takes keen advantage of it in her ... LP, Vinyl record album
Capitol, Late 60s. Very Good+
A classic set of tracks from Peggy – featuring the sublime hit "Is That All There Is?", produced by Lieber & Stoller, and arranged and conducted by Randy Newman. Other arrangements are by the likes of Mike Melvoin, Mundell Lowe, George Tipton, and Bobby Bryant – all of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dinah Washington

Dinah '62
Roulette, 1962. Very Good+
Fantastic work from Dinah Washington – a singer who's really hitting her stride here during her years for Roulette Records – with a vibe that's maybe her most mature, most sophisticated to date! Washington still has currents of her bluesy roots in her approach, but she's also moving ... 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

Songs I Like To Sing!
Contemporary, 1964. Near Mint-
Arranged by Marty Paich – with cuts that include "I Want A Roof Over My Head", "If I Could Be With You", "You're Driving Me Crazy", "My Old Flame", and "Imagination". LP, Vinyl record album

Della Reese

C'mon & Hear
ABC/Paramount, Mid 60s. Very Good+
... LP, Vinyl record album
Reprise, 1964. Very Good+
A near-lost album from Sammy's years at Reprise – and an album that's got that nice bouncey style that the label was using with Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra in the 60s! A lot of the thanks goes to producer Sonny Burke, who inflects Sammy's vocals with a punched-up set of rhythms that makes ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dinah Washington

Swingin Miss D
EmArcy, Late 50s. Sealed
Swingin is right – as Dinah lets go with Quincy Jones orchestra, singing strong and hard in a set that's one of her best jazz sides from the 50s! Quincy knows how to mix just the right doses of straight jazz and tighter vocal arrangements – and Dinah's very comfortably at home in the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Pearl Bailey

Sings For Adults Only
Roulette, 1957. Near Mint-
Not as "adult" as you might think – at least given the way the word is used today – but pretty great work by Pearl nonetheless! The tunes themselves are a bit "blue" in terms of subject matter – tales of girls with hot pants, loose love, and the kind of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bobby McFerrin

Simple Pleasures
EMI/Manhattan, 1988. Very Good
... LP, Vinyl record album

Etta Jones

Something Nice
Prestige, Early 60s. Very Good+
It's always something nice when Etta Jones makes a record – but this one is especially so, thanks to some intimate small group backing from players who include Oliver Nelson, Lem Winchester, Wally Richardson, and Richard Wyands! The style is relatively intimate throughout – more late ... LP, Vinyl record album
