This image is a general representation of the item and the actual product may differ slightly in terms of color shading, logo placement, borders, or other small details. Used items may have various cosmetic differences as well.
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.

Genius 70s work from Woody Herman – funky big band with electric touches, served up on a range of wonderful tunes! Woody's still at the helm of the group on saxes and clarinet – but as with other Fantasy and Cadet albums, the real thanks here goes to arrangers – who include Bill ... LP, Vinyl record album
The most obscure of Woody's albums for Cadet – and a bit different than the other two! The album still features one side of upbeat groovy tunes – recorded with Richard Evans in a style that's a mix of big band funk and Cadet Records soul – and which show Woody to be a lot hipper ...

A great step forward for Chicago organist Odell Brown – and maybe a hint of the influence he'd have on the world of 70s soul to come! Odell plays organ on a set of Otis Redding classics – in a tribute to the recently-passed Stax Records singer, but done with some great funk and soul ... LP, Vinyl record album
Tremendous work from an alto player with a very unique conception – a player who was unlike Charlie Parker, Sonny Stitt, or some of his precursors on the instrument – and instead really took off in bold new directions, like Lou Donaldson or fellow Chicagoan Sonny Cox in the mid 60s! ... LP, Vinyl record album
Beautiful early work from John Klemmer – one of the most under-rated talents of his generation, and a great player who frequently gets overlooked because of his later, smoother work. This album is Klemmer's first – recorded with a soulful Chicago tenor sound, touched with some of the ... LP, Vinyl record album
An excellent early album from Chet Baker – recorded with his classic quartet lineup that included Russ Freeman on piano – and done in conjunction with a concert recorded in Ann Arbor, Michigan – oddly promoted by Ollie McLaughlin, a legendary figure on the Detroit soul scene in ... LP, Vinyl record album
Groovin' set of tracks that has the lady organist in two settings – one with her trio with Jimmy Cobb on drums, the other with a hard swingin' big band led by Oliver Nelson. She's great with Nelson's band, and swings in the same hard way that Jimmy Smith does in the same setting. Tracks ... LP, Vinyl record album
Soaring work from the legendary John Coltrane Quartet – a session that was incredibly far-reaching for the time, and which originally was unissued until after the time of Coltrane's death! The record's got the group really pushing forward strongly – hitting a Love Supreme mode, but ... LP, Vinyl record album
