Artistry Of Nina Simone

LP (Item 948312) RCA (Germany), Late 50s/1960s/1970s — Condition: Near Mint-

(UK pressing.)

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.

RCA, 1971. Very Good+
Classic RCA work from the great Nina Simone – and an album that definitely shows Nina hitting more of the soul spectrum than some of her folk and jazz work of the 60s!

Philips, 1964. Very Good+
Classic Nina – recorded live on a variety of familiar numbers, but in that incredible mode that always transforms songs completely, lifting them from their roots and turning them into amazingly fierce proclamations of power and emotion!

Kay Starr

Blue Starr
RCA, 1957. Very Good+
Plenty of blue tones in Kay Starr's music here – those sad-tinged sounds that made her a real standout in 50s pop, served up here with some slightly jazzier elements as well! The record's a nice contrast to some of Kay's more familiar hits – in that it still shows her singing strongly ... LP, Vinyl record album

Kitty Kallen

My Coloring Book
RCA, 1962. Sealed
Key work from Kitty Kallen's comeback period at the start of the 60s – work that showcases her wonderfully fragile way of putting over a ballad – a sad-tinged sound that's different from most other singers! There's a slight hint of country roots in Kitty's voice at times, but the style ... LP, Vinyl record album
