Lure Of The Blue Mediterranean

LP (Item 954585) Decca, 1959 — Condition: Very Good+
Gatefold

(In the die-cut gatefold cover.)

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.

Waltz In Jazz Time
Liberty, Early 60s. Near Mint-
A very swinging album from trombonist Si Zentner – done in a big band style, but with plenty of groovy touches that show the 60s period of the recordings!

Heavenly Sounds In Hi Fi
ABC, Early 60s. Very Good
One of the best non-Winchester albums from the team of Ferrante & Teicher – not as crazy as some of their work, but still with some good elements of the piano trickery that made them famous. Titles include "Out Of This World", "East Of The Sun", "Over The ... LP, Vinyl record album

Quiet Village
Liberty, Late 50s. Very Good

Henry Mancini

Blues & The Beat
RCA, 1960. Very Good-
This is a pretty jazzy record compared to the usual Mancini soundtrack-type stuff. It's mostly mellow the whole way through and has some very nice moments due to the quality of the playing.
