Stove Man, Love Is The Word

LP (Item 18848) Sandra (Germany), 1979 — Condition: Near Mint-

A great little album from Frank Wright – pretty soulful, with an inside vibe that's more in a 70s spiritual soul jazz mode than some of Wright's other work. The title's a pretty strange one – as is the bluesy title track, which features Wright vocalizing a bit. The other numbers are pretty great, though, especially the modal groover "T&W", which has nice grooves from the band, and a spiralling trumpet solo by Ka-Kamal-Abdul-Alm. Other tracks are more in a post-Coltrane searching mode, and include "Rice Patch", and "Export".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

Philly Joe's Beat
Atlantic, 1960. Very Good
A stunner! Philly Joe's Beat is a beautiful bit of modernist hardbop by the drummer. Philly Joe pounds away with his usual clarity and groove, but the real treat is an unexpected appearance by the great Bill Barron, who plays tenor on the session. Barron's tenor is amazingly precise, and filled ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lester Young/Buddy Rich Trio
Verve, Early 50s. Very Good
Although we were never big fans of Buddy, we can endure him for this nice relaxed Verve session, because it offers some great playing by Prez in a very stripped down setting. The record also features an obscure pianist named "Aye Guy", who is actually Nat King Cole – not named on ... LP, Vinyl record album

Savoy, 1955. Very Good
One of Cannonball Adderley's first albums – recorded for Savoy way back in 1955, and done with a free and open style that's a nice contrast to his tighter sides for Mercury!

Dave Baby Cortez

Tweetie Pie
Roulette, Mid 60s. Very Good+
Not as funky as the albums he'd later cut in the early 70s, but still a lot of short groovy little organ tracks with the Baby Cortez feel to them. Hugo & Luigi produce his renditions of pop songs and R&B numbers that were popular at the time, like "Shake", "Watermelon ... LP, Vinyl record album

Post-Atlantic work from Percy Sledge, but a set that's still pretty darn great – produced with a newly sophisticated edge in Muscle Shoals by the legendary Quin Ivy, who really seems bent on helping Sledge break out of earlier styles in his music!

Watercolors
Arista, 1980. Near Mint-
A nicely grooving set to start the 80s by The Waters – an underappreciated 2-man, 2-woman LA vocal group who did a considerable amount of backup vocals in the studio scene of the late 70s – and this is easily their best record! It's got some of the best arrangements the group ever ... LP, Vinyl record album
