LP, Vinyl record album


4.60 5

Double LP set that brings together the complete recording sessions that went on to become Dolphy's legendary Iron Man and Conversations LPs from the mid 60's. Recorded under the guidance of producer Alan Douglas, Dolphy plays in a number of settings – from spare duets with Richard Davis, to larger groups that include Prince Lasha, Sonny Simmons, Clifford Jordan, and Bobby Hutcherson. The recordings are a seminal part of Dolphy's career, and represent the same sort of collaborative vibe that was present during his classic Out To Lunch session. Tracks include "Iron Man", "Alone Together", "Burning Spear", "Music Matador", and "Mandrake". (Cover has a cut corner.)  © 1996-2015, Dusty Groove, Inc.

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.

Used Vinyl Grades

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, please note that all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:

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.

Devotion
Douglas, 1970. Very Good- Gatefold
An intensely jamming album from guitarist John McLaughlin – and a record that set a whole new tone for electric jazz in the 70s! The album was recorded shortly after McLaughlin's work with Miles Davis on Bitches Brew and Tony Williams on the first Emergency album – and in a way, it's a ... LP, Vinyl record album

My Goal's Beyond
Douglas, 1970. Very Good Gatefold
Two sides of McLaughlin, both showcasing his spiritual exploratory inclination. The first side of this album features McLaughlin in a group with Billy Cobham, Airto, Charlie Haden, Dave Liebman and Jerry Goodman plus nice Indian touches from Mahalakshmi on sitar and Badal Roy on tabla. They ... LP, Vinyl record album

Wildflowers 4 – The New York Loft Jazz Sessions
Douglas, 1977. Near Mint-
The fourth volume in this seminal series from the mid 70s – one that did a great job of documenting some of the formative underground playing that was happening in the New York loft scene, almost more creative work than in previous generations, thanks to a lack of commercial venues, and hence ...

Cinnamon Flower
Douglas, 1977. Near Mint-
A great later effort from tenor sax giant Charlie Rouse – a record that's quite different than his 50s hardbop or his 60s modernist work with Thelonious Monk – but still pretty darn great in its own sort of way! The album features Rouse working with a larger ensemble in a batch of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Work Of Art
New Jazz, 1954. Near Mint-
A great batch of material that Art Farmer recorded for Prestige in the early fifties. This is way before he got hyper-lyrical, and his playing is raw and hard on a bunch of Quincy Jones arrangements, including the savage cut "Mau-Mau", which features a very early use of the electric bass ...

Incantation
AFI/RML, 1973. Near Mint-
Obscure midwest group with Rufus Reid on bass and Art Hoyle on trumpets. There's a vague Sun Ra connection here, which mostly manifests itself in the record's cool spare spacey sound. The standout cut is "Frump Trump", which has a nice hard boogaloo sound, and a great breakbeat on the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Abet, 1975. Near Mint-
Groovy funky flute tracks, and similar to other instrumental albums on the Abet label – like work by Oliver Sain. Jesse's in the lead on flute and tenor, and is accompanied by electric keyboards and organ. The groove's not as totally hard and funky as Oliver Sain, but still pretty groovy. ...

Naima
East World (Japan), Late 70s. Near Mint-
Beautiful direct to disc session that stands as one of our favorites by trumpeter Hannibal Marvin Peterson. He's playing here with Kenny Barron, Cecil McBee, and Billy Hart – and in a style that's typical of the warm spiritual imagination of these Japanese sessions from the 70's. The title ...

Spaced
A&M, 1977. Very Good+
Wonderful! Shawn Phillips started his career as a shaggy folk rocker with a bit of a jazzy twinge – but this album collects odd bits and pieces that were left off of earlier albums, and works perfectly as a record that shows a whole new side of his genius! The album shows Phillips as a ... LP, Vinyl record album

T Neck/Buddah, 1970. Near Mint-
Fantastically groovy bit of funky instrumental cuts, and probably the best thing that Dave Cortez ever did. Produced by the Isley Brothers, and featuring instrumental versions of lots of their great early T-Neck hits. Includes the massive version of "I Turned You On", with a great intro ...
