Gatefold
Originally: 9.99
...

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.

Verve, Late 50s. Near Mint-
An excellent album of vocals by the great Joe Williams! Joe's always been a fine singer, but with Basie, he really gets the backing he needs to do his work the best. And although this album isn't as authenico as it might be, it still comes from a time when Verve really knew how to handle singers ... LP, Vinyl record album

Carmen McRae

Bittersweet
Focus, Mid 60s. Near Mint-
Here's a rare one from Carmen – a beautifully understated session recorded for the tiny Focus label, done with spare and soulful backings from Norman Simmons, who leads the album's small combo on the backing. Tracks are nice and mellow – very different than some of the later work ... LP, Vinyl record album
Candid/Pure Pleasure (UK), 1997. Sealed 2LP Gatefold
One of the first albums ever recorded by UK jazz singer Stacey Kent – the start of a great run of albums that would bring the vocalist great fame in the decade to come! The style here is nice and laidback – that strong commitment to reviving jazz vocal modes that made Kent such a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Betty Carter

Round Midnight (Atco)
Atco, Early 60s. Very Good
An interesting early album from Betty Carter – less jazz than some of her later work, but with a bit more of an edge than some of her ABC recordings. The album's got sort of an arranged sophisticated jazz style – in the mode of 60s work by Esther Phillips or Dinah Washington – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sarah Vaughan

Crazy & Mixed Up
Pablo, 1982. Very Good+
Nothing crazy and mixed up here, but a wonderful later date from Sarah Vaughan – one that's recorded with subtly sophisticated brilliance! The setting is easygoing and relaxed – far more so than most of Vaughan's records from many years past – and backing is provided by Roland ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ella Fitzgerald

Ella At The Opera House
Verve, 1957. Near Mint-
Ella gets nice backing on most tracks by a small combo that features Oscar Peterson on piano and Herb Ellis on guitar – and a larger group on a few more, with Stan Getz, Coleman Hawkins, and Lester Young on tenors! Titles include "Stompin At The Savoy", "Goody Goody", ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lambert, Hendricks & Ross

Sing A Song Of Basie (Impulse pressing)
Impulse, Late 50s. Very Good
One of the first albums ever by this legendary jazz vocal group! LHR do the incredible – and create a set of vocal renditions of standards by the Basie band, putting jazzy lyrics in to replace the instrumental solos, but keeping the same vibe as the original tracks. The sound and approach ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bobby McFerrin

Spontaneous Inventions
Blue Note, 1986. Near Mint-
McFerrin's vocal pyrotechnics on a host of tunes that include "Bwee-Dop", "Walkin", "Blackbird", "Manana Iguana", "I Got The Feelin", "Opportunity", "Drive", and "Cara Mia". Guests are Herbie Hancock, Robin Williams, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Starlite, 1956. Very Good+
The first-ever album from the legendary Hi-Lo's – a landmark indie debut that went onto transform the sound of vocal harmony in the 20th century! The record's got a subtle brilliance that's hard to catch at first – a way of putting together the tunes that's often only slightly ... LP, Vinyl record album
Prestige, Early 50s. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
An important set that documents a nice patch of King's early vocalese jazz sides – pivotal vocal jazz recordings that were not only enormously popular with listeners around the country, but which also did a heck of a lot in the way of advancing the way that male singers handled lead vocals on ... LP, Vinyl record album
Fania, 1972. Near Mint-
A Latin soul party – beyond compare! The album's a completely wonderful live set that really captures the energy, excitement, and warm sociability of the hip New York scene at the end of the 60s. The music is stunning – a freewheeling blend of jazz, soul, and Latin themes – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Electric Concept Orchestra

Electric Love
Limelight, Late 60s. Very Good+
A great version of moogy pop from the moog pop era of the late 60s – served up with a slightly sexy vibe, as you might guess from the title and the cover! The set's got a great electronic take on the Serge Gainsbourg classic "Je T'aime Moi Non Plus", plus versions of "Stella ... LP, Vinyl record album
