Stop! I Don't Need No Sympathy!

LP (Item 17497) Brunswick, 1974 — Condition: Very Good+

An excellent album of tight little instrumentals – one that features the combination of Lionel Hampton's vibes with the groovy Chicago soul production of Brunswick Records! The tracks bounce along nicely, as if they were soul instrumental 45s for Brunswick – almost more along the line of the label's work with Young Holt Unlimited, but with vibes instead of piano – and Hampton maybe sounds better here than he had in years on previous recordings! The approach is very hip – a great blend of soul, jazz, and funk – and titles include "Stop, I Don't Need No Sympathy", "I Wish It Was Me", "It's Time For Peace", "You Wouldn't Believe", and "Turn Back The Hands Of Time".  © 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.

Very cool work from Lionel Hampton – quite a change from his Verve material of the 50s, and an unusual sort of date for the Audio Fidelity label!
