Befour

LP (Item 12818) RCA, 1970 — Condition: Near Mint-

The third album from Brian Auger & The Trinity – and the first to feature the group recording without vocals from Julie Driscoll! The sound here is just as soulful as before – a tight take on American soul jazz and funky soul of the 60s – pushed along by Auger's mighty work on the Hammond organ, and featuring (this time around) some male lead vocals, which seem to give the album an even deeper feel than earlier work! Auger's included some great covers of American tunes like "I Want To Take You Higher", "Listen Here", and "Maiden Voyage" – all redone with some great Brit beat group touches – and the album also features a great take on Faure's "Pavane", and Auger's own "Just You Just Me".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Stereo pressing, LSP-4372. Cover has light wear.)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor 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.

RCA, Early 60s. Near Mint-
70s repackaging of Desmond Blue – a cool jazz classic from altoist Paul Desmond and guitarist Jim Hall!

Guy Lafitte

Sugar & Spice
RCA (France), 1972. Near Mint-
A rich, warm session from French tenor giant Guy Lafitte – one of the most soulful players to come out of the Paris scene of the postwar years, and a player with a sound that's somewhere between Coleman Hawkins and Ben Webster!

What's New?
RCA, 1962. Very Good
A very unique album from Sonny Rollins – one that features him blowing tenor over some Latin-based rhythms that have a tight uptempo feel.

New Vibe Man In Town
RCA, 1961. Near Mint-
The first-ever album from vibist Gary Burton – a very young player at the time of recording, but one who's definitely worth the "new vibe man" promised in the title! The style here is maybe a bit more conventionally swinging than some of Burton's records from later years – a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Phil Woods

Floresta Canto
RCA, 1976. Sealed
One of those great records from the 70s that makes you say "man, Phil Woods was hip!" The session was cut in London with an electrified big band led by Chris Gunning, and featuring keyboards by the groovy Gordon Beck – kind of a blend of strings, keys, and woodwinds – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Vince Guaraldi & Bola Sete

Live At El Matador
Fantasy, 1966. Near Mint-
A hip little live date from the team of Vince Guaraldi and Bola Sete – one that's a bit heavier on Vince's piano than Bola's guitar – but in a way that's a-OK with us! There's a sweetly gliding sensibility to the whole set – that warm lyricism and subtle soul that Guaraldi always ... LP, Vinyl record album
