Stop The World I Want To Get Off

LP (Item 2167) World Pacific, 1962 — Condition: Very Good+

A very different take on this score than the vocal one – thanks to great work from Victor Feldman on both piano and vibes – in a hip trio with Bob Whitlock on bass, and the great LA drummer Lawrence Marable – who really keeps things great at the bottom! Titles include "Typically English", "Little Boy", and "I Wanna Be Rich".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Original pressing! Cover has light wear.)

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.

More Drums On Fire!
World Pacific, 1959. Very Good
A various artists set, but one that also pulls together some great material from the Pacific Jazz catalog, including some tracks that we've never seen on other LPs. Titles include "Brushes", which features Mel Lewis, Russ Freeman, and Zoot Sims; "Triste" with Armando Peraza, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Billy Larkin & The Delegates

Hold On!
World Pacific, Mid 60s. Very Good+
Classic small combo organ grooves from Billy Larkin and his mighty Delegates! This LP has Billy moving into a bag in which he's covering more 60's soul hits (as he did in his later career for World Pacific), but the groove is still pretty solid, and the album's still got few good original tracks. ...

Bud Shank

Magical Mystery
World Pacific, 1967. Sealed
Bud Shank's second Beatles-titled album of the 60s – and a set that's even groovier than the first! The record features a wonderful jazz-based approach to "second chapter" Beatles – with arranger Bob Florence providing superb arrangements for post-Rubber Soul tunes, which are ...

Woody Herman

Light My Fire
Cadet, 1968. Very Good+
A masterpiece – one of 2 crazy albums in which Woody Herman's late band meets the Cadet arrangements of Richard Evans. You might think the combination wouldn't work – Woody's big band flourishes meeting up with Evans' compressed soulful grooves – but gosh, the record is simply ... LP, Vinyl record album

Cannonball Adderley

Why Am I Treated So Bad?
Capitol, Late 60s. Very Good+
If you ever needed a key example of the genius of Cannonball on Capitol Records, this tight little set may well be it! The record's got all the best elements of a Cannon classic firmly in place – production by David Axelrod, electric piano by Joe Zawinul, and some tremendously soulful work ... LP, Vinyl record album
Capitol, Late 60s. Very Good+
A great lost chapter in the Cannonball/David Axelrod story! The record features Cannon's classic quintet performing some longer, more serious works with orchestral backing – and the sound is vaguely similar to some of Axelrod's "high concept" work for Capitol. The record features ... LP, Vinyl record album
Jamey Aebersold, 1975. Near Mint-
One of the hip albums of jazz instrumentals issued by Jamey Aebersold's "learn and play jazz" label from the 70s – featuring a tight set of original trio tracks with a spare groove that's really nice. The group's a trio, with Rufus Reid on bass and Dan Haerle on piano – and ... LP, Vinyl record album

George Benson

Good King Bad
CTI, 1975. Very Good+ Gatefold
Sweet 70s funk from George Benson – an album that's a bit smoother than some of his earlier work, but still free from the commercial polish of his later hits! Maestro David Matthews is at the helm for this session – and most numbers have a full backing from players who include some of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gene Ammons

Greatest Hits
Prestige, 1960s. Near Mint-
While it's tough to think of a jazz player having "hits" – given the low sales of jazz albums, even in the 60s – it's still the case that Ammons' sound was so strong, and so soulful, he had plenty of fans in the crossover market for some of his bigger recordings. The album ... LP, Vinyl record album

Curtis Fuller

All Star Sextets
Savoy, 1959. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
Outstanding early work from Curtis Fuller, leading a smoking small group through bop and hard bop numbers in a modernist mode like some of the best Jazztet sides Art Farmer and Benny Golson would go on to cut a few years later. Golson's featured here alongside Fuller in the front line, with either ... LP, Vinyl record album

Russell Garcia

Discovery, 1980. Near Mint-
With Mike Wofford on Fender Rhodes, Teddy Edwards on tenor, and Bill Watrous on trombone. LP, Vinyl record album

Norman Connors

Romantic Journey
Buddah, 1976. Very Good+
A warmly romantic journey from the stellar Norman Connors – but a set that's also got a fair bit of spiritual jazz undercurrents too! Norman's at that perfect Starship point in his career – giving equal space to the vocals and instrumental passages on the record – at a level that ... LP, Vinyl record album
