Music Improvisation Company

LP (Item 25552) ECM (Germany), 1970 — Condition: Near Mint-

A seminal session that forever put the British improvisational scene on the map – a great little record that features guitar by Bailey, soprano sax by Evan Parker, electronics by Hugh Davies, and work by Jamie Muir and Christine Jeffrey. Tracks are longish, and relatively free – and titles include "Tuck", "Third Stream Boogaloo", "Dragon Path", and "Packaged Eel".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(US pressing. Cover has a cut corner.)

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.

Diary
ECM, 1974. Very Good+

Two of the greatest things going for ECM in the 70s – brought together on one record!

Oregon (1983)
ECM, 1983. Near Mint-
The Oregon sound, still alive and well into the 80s – perhaps given even more room to express itself in an ECM setting like this!

Mercury, Early 60s. Near Mint- Gatefold
The groovy off-kilter arranger from the Kenton band lays down some cool, but oddly orchestrated stuff in a setting with a big, fat bottom of 10 saxes and 2 basses. Tracks include "2 Funky Basses", "Contrasts", "Saxophobia", "Holiday For Strings", "Guy ... LP, Vinyl record album
