Best of Daly-Wilson Big Band

LP (Item 1904) Festival (Australia), 1978 — Condition: Very Good+
2LP Gatefold
(€3.99 || £3.54 || ¥527) (approx.)

2 LP set featuring some of the best work of this funky Australian big band! Tracks culled from most of their 70's albums, including their version of "Shaft" and the hard swingin' "Col's Dilemma". And we should warn you – the inside of the gatefold cover features the entire band nude with just their respective instruments covering their privies. And one hirsute hornsmen didn't cover up so well! I guess now we now what they mean about the land down under!!! Other titles include "El Boro", "3 For All", "Song For Sarah", and the group's "Beatles Medley". (Cover has some light wear.)  © 1996-2018, 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.

Ahead Of Hair
Festival/Blank (Australia), 1969. Sealed (reissue)
One of the grooviest takes on the music of Galt MacDermot you'll ever hope to hear – as Australian percussionist John Sangster turns in some wonderful rhythm-heavy versions of the tunes from Hair – and also adds in a few sweet numbers of his own! Sangster also wrote a few new tracks, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Trip
Festival/Blank (Australia), 1967. Sealed (reissue)
A sweet trip into groovy jazz from the great John Sangster – a man who plays some excellent vibes on this rare Australian album – plus a fair bit of other percussion instrumentation as well! The album also features soundtrack genius Sven Libaek – who not only handled arrangements ... LP, Vinyl record album
Thing To Come By
Solid State, Late 60s. Very Good Gatefold
A real solid groover, and one that we passed up for many years, mistakenly, because the cover looks kind of boring! On the inside, though, the record's filled with lots of nice tasty tracks, and it's got a sinister bubbling under funky feel that's just great. Includes the monster cut "Charlot ... LP, Vinyl record album
Get Up With It
Columbia, 1974. Good+ 2LP Gatefold
Miles Davis' last studio session before a few years of seclusion – and a really monumental effort, probably the baddest of the electric period! The album does a great job of capturing the energy of the frenzied live sets from that time, and matching it with Teo Macero's cut and paste editing ... LP, Vinyl record album
Easterly Winds
Blue Note, 1967. Good+
A sublime album by one of our favorite talents in 60s jazz – pianist Jack Wilson, making his second Blue Note appearance here amidst a group of other more likely label players that include Lee Morgan on trumpet, Jackie McLean on alto, and Billy Higgins on drums! Despite the presence of those ... LP, Vinyl record album
Mellow Yellow
Cadet, 1967. 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
Freddie Roach Soul Book
Prestige, 1966. Good+
Incredibly groovy work from one of the hippest organ talents of the 60s – a true "soul book" of tu nes, most of which are originals penned by Freddie Roach! The sound here is really unique – a bit in the R&B-inspired style of Freddie's work for Blue Note, but also with a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Barefoot Adventure
Pacific Jazz, 1961. Good+
Amazing! Although this album's a soundtrack to some goofy California surfer film, it's actually a killer batch of off-kilter jazz tracks composed by Bud Shank, and with a sound that's unlike anything we've ever heard from him! The frontline of the session is Shank, Bob Cooper, and Carmell Jones ... LP, Vinyl record album
Brothers 4
Prestige, 1969. Good+
A mighty pairing of organist Don Patterson and saxman Sonny Stitt – one of Patterson's grooviest late 60s outings, thanks to an excellent sound from all players involved! Stitt plays Varitone sax on the date, which gives his horn a cool electric feel that really sounds wonderful next to Don's ... LP, Vinyl record album
Round About Midnight
Columbia, 1956. Good+
Thelonious Monk may have written the title tune, but Miles Davis makes it all his own here – blowing with a subtle moody magic that makes the album one of his true treasures from the early Columbia Records years! John Coltrane's along on tenor sax – helping Davis expand the sound the ... LP, Vinyl record album
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
Ellington At Newport
Columbia, 1956. Very Good
One of the first albums to ever issue recordings made at the Newport Jazz Festival – quite a big hit, and the beginning of a real trend in jazz! The set's also some great work by Duke – free to perform in a setting that's not bound by some of the time restrictions of earlier years, ... LP, Vinyl record album
