Only Memories

LP (Item 944362) Mercury, Mid 50s — Condition: Very Good

(Stereo pressing with deep groove.)

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.

Command, 1969. Very Good+ Gatefold
Groovy electronic pop stuff from the great Command label! Not as wild as Dick Hyman, but still pretty darn nice, and with a good groovy feel, accented by some nice "Latin" touches. Titles include "Girl From Ipanema", "Dansero", "Look Of Love", "Hare ... LP, Vinyl record album

Mercury, 1966. Very Good+
Fantastic piano work from the very groovy Horst Jankowski – an artist who's really stepping into his own with this sweet mid 60s album! The set still follows the balance of electric bass and hard piano sounds from Horst – but it also fleshes out the music in a really great way, by ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ferrante & Teicher

Blast Off!
ABC, Early 60s. Near Mint-
One of the few totally brilliant early Ferrante & Teicher albums – especially for their non-Westminster label releases! The album's a lot like the great Westminster titles – in that it features the pair working in very strange arrangements – often tuning the pianos strangely, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Les Baxter

African Jazz
Capitol, Late 50s. Very Good
One of the coolest, grooviest records we've ever heard from the great Les Baxter – and a real standout set, even amidst his other exotica albums for Capitol! This one really delivers on the "jazz" promised in the title – thanks to strong tenor solos from Plas Johnson, who ... LP, Vinyl record album
Capitol, Late 50s. Very Good
Music for lovers – and some languid lovers at that – thanks to some perfect mellow moods set by Jackie Gleason! The set's one of Jackie's undisputed classics for Capitol Records in the 50s – perfect sounds to woo a winsome lass, made slightly sexier by some great trumpet solos by ... LP, Vinyl record album

Voices of Walter Schumann

Exploring the Unknown
RCA, 1955. Very Good
One of the postwar space-age classics! The normally-sleepy chorus of Walter Schumann is used to create the backdrop for a narrative of space flight – read by Paul Frees, and involving the takeoff of a rocket from the Pacific, soaring into space, past the moon, and arriving on Venus. The ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dick Hyman

Age Of Electronicus
Command, 1969. Near Mint- Gatefold
Nice one! This is one of Dick Hyman's most fantastic LPs, and the one that includes some of his best moogy playing. With the very funky club cut "Give It Up Or Turn It Loose", plus "Both Sides Now", "Kolumbo", "Time Is Tight", and "Green Onions". LP, Vinyl record album
