Grassella Oliphant — Grass Is Greener ... LP 11.99

A sweet soulful set from drummer Grasella Oliphant – one of two legendary albums cut for Atlantic Records in the 60s – and the one with a very heavy-hitting lineup! The vibe here is somewhere between Blue Note Hammond dates and soul jazz on Prestige Records in the mid 60s – as Grasella leads a totally great group with John Patton on Hammond, Grant Green on guitar, and Harold Ousley on tenor – making a really great appearance here, and having us wish he did more dates like this! Clark Terry's also on the set to punch things up on trumpet and flugelhorn – and titles include a killer break version of "Get Out Of My Life Woman", with some very tasty drums – plus "Cantaloupe Woman, "The Yodel", "The Latter Days", "Rapid Shave", and "Soul Woman".

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.

Atlantic, 1977. Very Good-
A strange and beautiful album from the late Don Pullen! The record is almost a funk album at times, but it's really more of an electrically-tinged session that brings Pullen's lively keyboards into play with some strident groupings that include George Adams, Hannibal Marvin Peterson, and Roland ...
