Baubles, Bangles & Beads

LP (Item 936621) Columbia, 1958 — Condition: Very Good+

The Kirby Stone Four were not always as right-on as other vocal quartets of their time, like the Four Freshmen or Hi-Lo's – but this album is one of their best, and features the group grooving in a tight harmony sound, with little of the "comedy" that sometimes mars other albums. Includes their classic hit recording of "Baubles Bangles & Beads", which is a mighty groover, plus jazzy vocal readings of standards like "Rain", "Lullaby Of Birdland", "Swingin Down The Lane", and "Bidin My Time". Also includes a great reading of "Fugue For Tinhorns" (from Guys & Dolls)! Very jazzy, groovy, and wow wow wow!  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Stereo pressing. Cover has light wear.)

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight 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.

Go Sound
Columbia, 1959. Very Good
The Kirby Stone Four took the jazz vocal harmony style of groups like the Four Freshmen or The Hi Los, and they punched it up a bit, adding in a bit of humor and showmanship, in a mode that made them very popular with the live audiences in the Nevada clubs that were often their home turf.
