1962's Greatest Hits

LP (Item 989278) Dot, 1962 — Condition: Sealed

(Stereo pressing.)

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.

Command, 1967. Near Mint- Gatefold
An incredible little set by Dick Hyman – as light and lovely as his other records are groovy – and done in a way that mixes Dick's breezy work on piano with a sweet set of woodwinds in the background! The sound's not exactly bossa, but it draws plenty of inspiration from the sound of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Burt Bacharach

Reach Out
A&M, 1967. Very Good+
Fantastic! We love Burt Bacharach in so many ways that it's easy to forget the genius of these early A&M sides – but going back to them is always a treat, and it's wonderful to hear the way that Burt lays down his own work when given the chance! You know the tracks – "House ... LP, Vinyl record album

Enoch Light

Big Band Bossa Nova
Command, 1962. Near Mint- Gatefold
Enoch Light and his Big Band give upbeat renditions of "Desafinado", "One Note Samba", "Perdido", "E Luxo So", "Sem Saudades De Voce", "Besame Mucho", "Take The A Train", "Lullaby Of Birdland", and others. LP, Vinyl record album
Liberty/Sunset, Late 50s. Very Good-
This is the craziest Mancini LP we've ever heard, and probably our favorite too! This is early stuff by him, and it's unlike anything else he ever did. The bulk of the album is weird spooky accordian and organ music, played super super slow, with hauting, even scary arrangements. The whole thing' ... LP, Vinyl record album

18th Century Concepts

In the 20th Century Bag
Sidewalk, Late 60s. Very Good+
Some "baroque" pop stuff from this groovy studio band on Sidewalk. As the liner notes say "The great hits of today, with today's exciting beat", but with a group that gives the songs a fake 18th century sound. Mike Curb's on keyboards, and there may be a potential Wu-Tang ... LP, Vinyl record album

Shirley Scott

Latin Shadows
Impulse, 1965. Very Good+ Gatefold
A great album from Shirley Scott – with some excellent arrangements by Gary McFarland! We've always felt that Shirley plays best when she's not leading the group – when someone else is handling the arrangements, so that she can groove mightily on her own – and this album is a ...

Ramsey Lewis

Mother Nature's Son
Cadet, 1968. Near Mint-
One of our favorite Ramsey Lewis albums of all time – an incredible reworking of tunes by The Beatles, done in collaboration with Cadet Records studio maestro Charles Stepney – who brings in some amazing arrangements and production styles to the record! The tunes are familiar, but the ... LP, Vinyl record album
