LP, Vinyl record album


4.90 9

Excellent bit of moogy stuff by one of the best French players of the instrument (and there were quite a few of them!) Denjean runs through a set that includes one original ("Ce Jour La") and a number of groovy covers, like "Tight Rope", "Love Story", "Alone Again, Naturally", and "Duck You Sucker". Nice moog sound, too, with lots of room for the keyboard to lay down some spare groovy solos! (Cover has a cut corner.)  © 1996-2015, Dusty Groove, Inc.

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.

Used Vinyl Grades

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, please note that all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:

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.

Decca, 1970. Very Good
Scott's second installment of Switched-On Bacharach. The first one did so well, they let him take another crack at Bacharach's work with his moogy moog. Contains nice moogy versions of Bacharach tracks like "Promises, Promises", "Reach Out", and "Always Something There To ... LP, Vinyl record album

Capitol, Late 60s. Very Good+
The hardest to find of the David McCallum albums on Capitol – and like the others, a very nice set of moody tunes with arrangements by HB Barnum, and hip production by David Axelrod! Axelrod gets in some very nice moments on the set, slipping in some dark passages underneath simple pop tunes ... LP, Vinyl record album

CTI, 1972. Very Good+
One of the best CTI albums from the early 70s – and one of Stanley Turrentine's funkiest records as well! The album's got a sharper edge than most other Turrentine albums of the time – a quality that goes beyond Stan's already soulful approach to the tenor, and which brings in some ...
