A great little groover from saxophonist Charles Williams – possibly his strongest album ever, and a set that features some rare funky work from a young Don Pullen! There's a slightly bluesy undercurrent to a few cuts – thanks to organ from Pullen and guitar from Cornell Dupree – but overall, the set's in an early 70s soul jazz mode – nice and open at times, and not as tightly arranged as some of the other Mainstream Records sets. Other players include David Brooks on tenor, Jimmy Lewis on bass, William Curtis on drums, and Montego Joe on congas – helping to chop up the bottom rhythms nicely! Titles include the groovy "Booger Bear", plus "Chop Chop", "Cracklin Bread", "Trees & Grass & Things", "Exactly Like You", "Song From The Old Country", and "Moving Up". (Cover has light wear, some peeling on the spine & a bottom seam that has come unglued.)  © 1996-2015, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

Along Comes Cal
Verve, Late 60s. Very Good+
Great stuff – and very very groovy! Cal cut this record for Verve during the height of his swinging 60s Latin years – and he's working here with arranger Chico O'Farrill, who at the time, was perfectly suited for Cal's short, jaunty approach to a groove! The album's filled with nice ... LP, Vinyl record album

Vault, 1972. Near Mint-
An excellent early album from Ernie Watts – one that has him taking on the music of Stevie Wonder with very groovy results!
