Southern Comfort

LP (Item 18064) Blue Thumb, 1974 — Condition: Sealed
2LP Gatefold

A landmark album from The Crusaders – and a set that really has them sweetening up their groove with lots of tasty R&B touches! The guitar's a bit more pronounced in the mix on this one – setting up some tightly funky rhythms that almost seem to free up the horns even more for solo work – resulting in a sound that brings together all the best bits of the LA scene into one impeccable album of smooth jazzy funk! Titles includes their classic "Stomp & Buck Dance", plus lots of other nice groovers like "Double Bubble", "Time Bomb", "The Well's Gone Dry", "Whispering Pines", "Lillies Of The Nile", "Greasy Spoon", and "Super Stuff".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Sealed original pressing!)

Sealed

This is what it says, that the record is still held fast in shrink-wrap. We tend to be pretty suspicious about these things, so if the shrink-wrap doesn't look original, or if the record seems to have undergone some damage over time, we'll probably take it out of the wrapper to ensure that it's in good shape — which is why we don't have more of these. In some cases the shrink-wrap may be torn in spots, but if it's not possible the record has been taken out and played, the record will still qualify as "Sealed".

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.

Quincy Jones

Smackwater Jack
A&M, 1971. Near Mint- Gatefold
A great bit of 70s electric work from Quincy – and probably his funkiest album ever! Quincy's really stepping out here from the straighter and spacier styles of earlier records – going for more of the dirty grooves he was cutting up for soundtrack albums, and hitting notes that were a ...

Von Freeman

Doin' It Right Now
Atlantic, 1972. Near Mint-
A classic "discovery" of tenor saxophonist Von Freeman – one that was already relatively late in his career, but a key appearance on Atlantic under the auspices of Roland Kirk! The setting here is as loose and laidback as Von needs to really do his thing – backing by a trio ... LP, Vinyl record album

Benny Carter

Further Definitions
Impulse, 1961. Near Mint- Gatefold
A key later album from alto saxophonist Benny Carter – one that has him at the helm of a largeish group, but playing with a nicely focused sort of groove! In addition to Benny's alto, the record also features tenor sax from Charlie Rouse and Coleman Hawkins, plus one more alto from Phil ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sonny Stitt

I Remember Bird
Catalyst, 1977. Near Mint- Gatefold
Stitt remembers Bird? How could he ever forget him? Seriously, though, this is a nice set of boppish material that moves past the usual "Bird" tribute. In fact, none of the stuff's by Bird, and most of the track list is a fairly non-traditional list of tracks. However, Stitt is ... LP, Vinyl record album

Freddie McCoy

Lonely Avenue
Prestige, 1965. Very Good-
The first record by vibist Freddie McCoy, and one that's got much more of a straight jazz feel than some of his later Prestige albums. Feddie's vibes are set in a group with a lesser-known group of Prestige players, like Gil Askey on trumpet, Tate Houston on baritone, and James Thomas on organ ... LP, Vinyl record album

George Wallington

Live At The Cafe Bohemia 1955
Prestige, 1955/1970. Near Mint-
A real standout in the catalog of pianist George Wallington – a very cooking live set, recorded at the Cafe Bohemia with an expanded quintet! The record supposedly showcases Wallington's style (or gimmick) – called "The Peck", and explained as a series of incomplete phrases ... LP, Vinyl record album
RCA, 1979. Near Mint-
World premier recordings of some excellent compositions by Berio, including "Allelujah II", which features six mixed instrumental groups playing in a variety of settings; "Nones", which features the London Symphony Orchestra, with Berio conducting; and "Concerto For Two ... LP, Vinyl record album

Big Daddy Kane

It's A Big Daddy Thing
Cold Chillin, 1989. Near Mint-
Another Kane classic, with cold chillin' beats by Kane, Marley Marl, Prince Paul, Easy Mo Bee, Mister Cee, and a pre-new jack Teddy Riley. Classic middle school hip hop from the days of tall fades, dookey ropes and tongue twisting fast rap. Includes "Warm It Up Kane", "Smooth ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sly & The Family Stone

Back On The Right Track
Warner, 1979. Sealed
Sly Stone's definitely back on the right track here – returning to the heights of his earlier powers in this late 70s comeback album for Warner Brothers! The record's got a lot of touches of the old Sly funky sound, but it's done in a slightly tighter style too – a bit more polish than ... LP, Vinyl record album
