Dizzy – Vol 8

LP (Item 976724) Vogue (France), Early 50s — Condition: Very Good+
A nice collection of tracks recorded by Diz during the early 50s – mostly in Paris, with backing by players that include tenorist Don Byas and pianist Wade Legge, and occasional vocals by Joe Carroll. Titles include "This Is The Way", "Always", "Crutch", "Fais Gaffe", "Hurry Home", "Moon Nocturne", and "I Don't Know Why".  © 1996-2024, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Early 60s issue in a flip-back cover, with bumped corners, some yellowing from age, and some sticker remnants in back.)

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.
