Groover

LP (Item 16461) Cadet, Mid 60s/1972 — Condition: Very Good

A set of classic Ramsey Lewis recordings with his trio of Eldee Young and Redd Holt, all of which were recorded during the 60s for Argo/Chess, but not released until this set in 1972. The tracks all came from the same live set that spawned the group's hit single version of "Hang On Sloopy", and the titles include "Look-A-Here", "Bags Groove", and "Summertime".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has light wear.)

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.

Ramsey Lewis

Les Fleurs
Columbia, 1983. Near Mint-
A bit later than Ramsey Lewis' classic electric sides for Columbia Records in the 70s, but still a pretty great little album – and one that mixes mellow grooves on Fender Rhodes with a nice dose of acoustic piano – in a style that's a bit like Rodney Franklin at the time, but ...

Ramsey Lewis

Movie Album
Cadet, Mid 60s. Sealed Gatefold
Jazzy and classy – and one of the first of Ramsey's albums to feature him working with larger arrangements instead of the usual trio. In this case, the whole thing was arranged and conducted by Richard Evans – with a spacey hip sound that's not too far from some of Ramsey's later work ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ramsey Lewis

Hang On Ramsey
Cadet, 1965. Very Good
Easily one of Ramsey Lewis' most successful records – featuring the hit soul jazz style that he forged with the Young/Holt rhythm combo, honed to perfection before a live crowd at The Lighthouse in Hermosa Beach. The record's a key part of Ramsey's live recorded output – showing the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ramsey Lewis

Dancing In The Street
Cadet, 1967. Very Good Gatefold
A late 60s groover from the second Ramsey Lewis trio – the one that features Cleveland Eaton on bass and Maurice White on drums, both doing a pretty great job of filling the spot vacated by Eldee Young and Red Holt! The album's a live one, cut in the successful mode of Ramsey's records with ... LP, Vinyl record album

Up Pops Ramsey Lewis
Cadet, 1967. Very Good
Although Ramsey first scored big with his spare trio recordings during the late 50s, by this point in his career, Cadet were wisely playing with his sound a lot, adding in new elements to keep things fresh and soulful. Such is the case with this album, which has Ramsey's second trio (with ... LP, Vinyl record album
Cadet, Mid 60s. Very Good+
A collection of Ramsey's work on Cadet/Argo that focuses mostly on the groovy uptempo tracks from the mid 60s – when Lewis had cracked the pop instrumental charts with soulful versions of bigger hits. Titles include "The In Crowd", "Function At The Junction", "Soul ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ramsey Lewis

Funky Serenity
Columbia, 1973. Very Good+
Sweet electric funk from Ramsey Lewis! The album's one of his best from the 70s – and it's got Ramsey on Fender Rhodes, electric harpsichord, and other keyboards, grooving away in an open-ended 70s mode that still retains all the heavy soul of his classic work for Chess. Morris Jennings ... LP, Vinyl record album

Odell Brown & The Organ-izers

Raising The Roof
Cadet, 1966. Very Good
The first LP by this stormin' organ jazz combo from Chicago, featuring the great Odell Brown on organ, Artee (Duke) Payne on alto, and Thomas Purvis on tenor. Includes loads of great tracks, like their originals "Enchilada Joe", "Raising the Roof", and "A Cool ... LP, Vinyl record album

Odell Brown

Mellow Yellow
Cadet, 1967. Very Good+
One of the great little organ combo albums that Odell Brown recorded with his crack group The Organ-Izers for Cadet. Lots of very groovy stuff, with Louis Satterfield on bass (before the Pharoahs and before Earth, Wind, & Fire), Curtis Prince on drums, Henry Gibson on congas, and Artee "Du ... LP, Vinyl record album
Cadet, 1967. Sealed
Sweet LA soul jazz from trumpeter Bobby Bryant – an oft-overlooked player with a hard hitting sound that was a bit like Nat Adderley! The album's one of Bobby's best (and few) – and it's got a really groovy little feel, almost in a Jazz Crusaders mode – with a small combo playing ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jack McDuff

Natural Thing
Cadet, 1968. Near Mint-
Amazing! This fantastic album by Jack McDuff is one of his best from the late 60's, and it almost never turns up on vinyl anymore. The album's a massive set of grooves that pits McDuff's funky organ against some very heavy soul jazz arrangements by Richard Evans. Evans provides a beautiful set ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ray Bryant

Ray Bryant Touch
Cadet, 1967. Very Good+
Simple stuff – but very nice! Ray's working here in a live trio setting – ala Ramsey Lewis or Les McCann from the same time – and his work on the album has a similar gutbuckety soul feel to it. The rhythm section of Jimmy Rowser bass and Rudy Collins drums is very tight – ... LP, Vinyl record album
