Very Best Of Bobby Short

LP (Item 949861) Atlantic, 1950s — Condition: Sealed

(Cover has a cutout notch.)

Sealed

This is what it says, that the record is still held fast in shrink-wrap. We tend to be pretty suspicious about these things, so if the shrink-wrap doesn't look original, or if the record seems to have undergone some damage over time, we'll probably take it out of the wrapper to ensure that it's in good shape — which is why we don't have more of these. In some cases the shrink-wrap may be torn in spots, but if it's not possible the record has been taken out and played, the record will still qualify as "Sealed".

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.

Atlantic, 1967. Near Mint-
One of Bobby D's albums from his confused period in the mid 60s! Sounds sort of goofy, but it actually works, thanks to some swinging arrangements by Roger Kellaway, and the pep and zip of the score. Plus, the cover's got Bobby leaning on a push me-pull me, with a doctor's bag and a big stovepipe ... LP, Vinyl record album

Story of the Blues
Jubilee, 1957. Very Good+
A really cool concept record from Della Reese – and an early album that shows just how deeply she approached her role as a jazz singer!

Mainstream, 1975. Very Good+
Live material by Sarah Vaughan – recorded in Tokyo, as you might guess from the title – and done with relatively spare backing throughout! The group's a trio, with Carl Schroeder on piano and Jimmy Cobb on drums – but they really lay back at times, and almost let Sarah sing in ... LP, Vinyl record album
