Reinforcements

LP (Item 1217) RCA, 1975 — Condition: Very Good+
Gatefold
Temporarily Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album

❔

A great later sleeper from Brian Auger – a record that's much deeper and more soulful than some of his earlier work – and done in a soaring style that's really great! Alex Lighterwood sings as much as Auger plays the keys here, but that's ok with us – because he fuses his voice very nicely with organ, electric piano, and moog – creating a spacily soulful quality that's produced with a nice flanged-out style! Some tracks are funky, others are more laidback – and the set's a great illustration of how far Auger had come in just a few years. Titles include the spacey "Thoughts From Afar", the fast-jamming "The Big Yin", a Latin-tinged instrumental "Something Out Of Nothing", plus "Future Pilot" and "Brain Damage".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

Happiness Heartaches
Warner, 1977. Very Good+
Later work from Brian Auger's Oblivion Express group – really pushing the envelope from previous work with a soaring blend of fusion and soul!

Norwegian Wood
RCA, 1960s/1973. Very Good+
This one appears to be a collection of work that Gary recorded for RCA during the 60s, but we'll be honest in saying that we don't recognize most of the tunes from albums that we have in our own collections. The grooves are laid out in a number of different settings – some in trio format, ... LP, Vinyl record album

RCA, 1960s. Near Mint-
A nice little reissue of some of Paul Desmond's great RCA sides.

Bridge (2nd pressing)
RCA, 1962. Near Mint-
A landmark album from Sonny Rollins – one that marked his comeback in the early 60s, after a brief period of retirement, and which also initiated a string of incredible recordings with guitarist Jim Hall. Given Hall's gentleness and spare modernity on the guitar, a fan of Rollins' hard-blowin ... LP, Vinyl record album

Neal Hefti

Concert Miniatures
RCA/Vik, 1957. Very Good
An obscure early gem from Neal Hefti – an amazing set of jazzy tracks, arranged with a style that's similar to some of his better soundtrack work of the 60s! The group on the album's a tentet – with 2 trumpets, trombone, reeds, guitar, bass, and lots of percussion – and Neal's at ... LP, Vinyl record album

Art Blakey & The Jazz Messengers

Hard Bop
Columbia, 1956. Very Good-
A killer album – one of Art Blakey's best non-Blue Note sides, and a blinding set of hard-driving jazz that well earns its title!
