Moon Germs

LP (Item 10892) CTI, 1973 — Condition: Very Good+
Gatefold

One of the best records ever cut by funky sax man Joe Farrell! The album's got a stripped down, choppy groove – virtually the blueprint for later 70s funk of this type, and played perfectly by Farrell and a very hip quartet lineup! Players include Joe on soprano and tenor sax, Herbie Hancock on keyboards, Stanley Clarke on bass, and Jack DeJohnette on drums – playing with a very angular sense of rhythm that really dives the record! The record's got a tight combo sound that's far more energetic than most CTI jazz from the time – and titles include the great cut "Great Gorge", which has a tight modal sample groove, plus "Times Lie", "Bass Folk Song", and "Moon Germs".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has light ring wear.)

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.

Joe Farrell

Skate Board Park
Xanadu, 1979. Near Mint-
Wonderful post-CTI material from saxophonist Joe Farrell – a set that has the reedman still going every bit as strong as on those classic records, but an album that's also a lot more obscure!

Bob James

Three
CTI, 1976. Near Mint- Gatefold
Dark genius from keyboardist Bob James – one of his seminal 70s classics for CTI!

Ron Carter

Blues Farm
CTI, 1973. Near Mint-
Sweet electric work from Ron Carter – subtle magic in the best CTI mode!

Prelude
CTI, Early 70s. Near Mint- Gatefold

In Concert Vol 2

A sublime live moment from the CTI scene of the 70s – an album that brings together some of the label's best lead players, into a special live supergroup that stretches out in a mighty nice way! In case you ever though the CTI genius came from the studio production of Creed Taylor, think ... LP, Vinyl record album

Wes Montgomery

Road Song
A&M/CTI, 1968. Very Good Gatefold
Beautifully lofty work from the great Wes Montgomery – a set that was recorded quite late in his too-short career, and really points the way towards some of the sophisticated sounds that might have followed, had Wes not left this planet all too soon! Don Sebesky is at the head of the charts ... LP, Vinyl record album

Hubert Laws

Morning Star
CTI, 1972. Very Good+ Gatefold
One of the most sublime Hubert Laws albums for CTI – a set that features his incredibly soulful flute work floating over these beautiful large arrangements by Don Sebesky – all ticked by some sweet electric piano from Bob James!

George Benson

White Rabbit
CTI, 1971. Very Good Gatefold
One of the moodiest sessions on CTI from the early days – and a landmark album that took George Benson from the funky jazz scene into the upper reaches of 70s jazz. The record was put together by Don Sebesky, and it's a lot more high concept than some of George's earlier work – and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Hubert Laws

Rite Of Spring
CTI, 1971. Very Good+
A groundbreaking record from flautist Hubert Laws – a mixture of classical themes and jazz, handled with an airy CTI approach – and set to arrangements by Don Sebesky that are simply mindblowing!
