Mercy, Mercy, Mercy!

LP (Item 22592) Capitol, 1966 — Condition: Near Mint-

If the 60's ever had a "hit" jazz record, it was probably this one! The album's a sparkling live session featuring the trademark soul jazz sounds of the Cannonball Adderley group with Joe Zawinul on acoustic and electric piano, and brother Nat Adderley on cornet. The tracks have a long soulful groove, with gutbucket solos from the 3 above-mentioned players, and tight live production by a young David Axelrod. Titles include "Sticks", "Hippodelphia", "Sack O Woe", and the classic "Mercy, Mercy, Mercy" – a jazz theme that you'll recognize instantly!  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Rainbow label stereo pressing. Back cover has light aging.)

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.

Riverside/Milestone, Early 60s. Sealed 2LP Gatefold
Like so many Milestone 2-fers from the 70s, this set combines two excellent 60s hard bop LPs into one nice set! Both sides feature Adderley's trademark soul jazz hard bop hybrid, but in contexts that add a twist to the settings you might otherwise have heard Cannonball in. The first album's a ...

Cannonball Adderley

Soul Zodiac
Capitol, 1972. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
One of the coolest, baddest, funkiest albums Cannonball Adderley ever recorded – a massive suite of tunes based on the signs of the Zodiac, produced to perfection by David Axelrod, and featuring some hip recitations from the mighty Rick Holmes! The double-length set is completely compelling ... 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

Cannonball Adderley

Somethin' Else
Blue Note, 1958. Very Good-
A landmark album – even if it was the only session that Cannonball Adderley ever cut for Blue Note! The album was recorded at a time when Adderley was working with Miles Davis – and as such, the session features a group that includes Miles, blowing in a cool tone that's a perfect ... LP, Vinyl record album

Billy Taylor

Midnight Piano
Capitol, Mid 60s. Very Good+
A really great album from Billy Taylor – way fresher than most of his other records of the time, especially his trio work! The main reason for this is Oliver Nelson – who crafts some incredibly soulful backings for Billy on the album's tracks, twisting through soul jazz big band ... LP, Vinyl record album

Earl Klugh

Wishful Thinking
Capitol, 1984. Very Good+
Smooth fusion from one of the greats – and although an 80s set, a record that still holds onto most of the best warmth of Earl Klugh's earlier years! The production is surprisingly laidback at points – never too many 80s gimmicks or easy attempts at a hit – and Earl plays with ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ray Bauduc & Nappy Lamare

Two-Beat Generation
Capitol, 1959. Very Good+
With Ray Bauduc and Nappy Lamare on drums and guitar/vocals respectively, plus Frank Beech, Joe Graves, and Mannie Klein alternating on trumpet, Gen Bolen on clarinet, Jackie Coon on mellophone and trumpet, Rolly Furnas on trombone, Ray Leatherwood on bass, Eddie Miller on tenor sax, and Stan ...

Onzy Matthews

Sounds For The 60s
Capitol, Mid 60s. Near Mint-
Sounds for the 60s indeed – and a great set of jazzy instrumentals that step out with a lean Capitol groove! Onzy's on piano and at the head of the group – and the record features some nice solo work by Curtis Amy and Clifford Scott, both of whom bring a surprising dose of soul to a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jonah Jones

I Dig Chicks
Capitol, Early 60s. Very Good
Can't argue with Jonah's logic – nor the cool cover, which has 4 lovelies hanging onto the end of a steam shovel! ("Dig" – get it?) The format of the album's simple – as Jonah's group punches their way through lively tunes with his trumpet right up front, all named ... LP, Vinyl record album

George Van Eps

My Guitar
Capitol, 1966. Near Mint-
Very mellow work from guitarist George Van Eps and his unique 7 string guitar – spare recordings with mostly guitar solos, plus some occasional extra vibes and percussion by Frank Flynn. The tracks include a number of 60s pop numbers, but they're done here in versions that are quite ... LP, Vinyl record album
Capitol, 1974. Near Mint-
A jazz fusion classic from Atmospheres – a hip group led by reedman Clive Stevens, and which also features some usually-mellower players really taking off together! Stevens blows a great range of horns – electric and acoustic tenor, sopranos sax, and often a wah-wah pedal to inflect ... LP, Vinyl record album
