Exciting Eddie Harris

LP (Item 25902) Kent, Early 60s — Condition: Very Good+
2LP

2LP set that brings together a load of Eddie's great recordings for the Vee Jay label – cut back in the days when he was a real soul jazz experimentalist, with an incredible knack for mixing styles. Tracks include the incredible "Oliphant Gesang", a wild number that's part Yusef Lateef and part Sun Ra. Others include "Goen Home", "ATC", "Laura", "Down", "Velocity", and "Alicia".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has splits on the bottom seam and some surface 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.

Free Speech
Atlantic, 1970. Near Mint-
Often overlooked, but a nice little record from Eddie's early electric period on Atlantic! The group is a very soulful one made up of Jodie Christian on electric piano, Louis Spears on bass, Billy Hart on drums, and Felix Henry on percussion. The overall sound is more restrained than some of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Atlantic, 1976. Near Mint-
Eddie continues the funky groove begun on Instant Funk, and smoothed out over albums like I Need Some Money – and although jazz fans probably gave him hell for going this way, we think this is actually a pretty darn great album! The record takes all of Eddie's experimentation with groovy ... LP, Vinyl record album

Here Comes The Judge
Columbia, Mid 60s. Very Good+
A great lost album from Eddie! The record was one of his few cut for Columbia – recorded between his early years at Vee Jay and his hit years at Atlantic – and it's an excellent little batch of cuts, with a tight Chicago soulful grooving sound, and a strong approach that mixes hardbop ...

Soul Of Eddie Harris
Up Front, Early 60s/Late 60s. Very Good+
No real dates or notes on the cover, but the album appears to include some of Eddie's excellent early work for the Vee Jay label – a wonderful blend of soul jazz and slightly experimental phrasing, and the kind of groundbreaking material that got Eddie noticed very early on in his career. ...

Explosive Eddie Harris
Vee Jay/Sunset, Early 60s/Late 60s. Very Good+
Although this set was issued on Sunset during the late 60s, it's most likely comprised of material recorded for Vee Jay earlier in the decade – when Harris was working in a groundbreaking style that mixed soul jazz and exoticism, into an amazing blend that still deserves huge recognition ... LP, Vinyl record album
Atlantic, 1968. Near Mint-
Great stuff from one of Eddie Harris' greatest periods! This one was cut in the late 60s – when Eddie was creating his famous electrified Varitone sound – unique among other jazz players in that it actually added a lot to Eddie's work, instead of detracted from it (as with some other ... LP, Vinyl record album

Eddie Harris

Instant Death
Atlantic, 1972. Very Good+
Damn great work from the amazing Eddie Harris – a record that's got a perfect blend of jazz and funk, but still holds onto more righteous elements too! Eddie's using his electric sax in a really great way – not as a gimmick at all, but as a way of linking both the soulful and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Eddie Harris

Excursions
Atlantic, 1973. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
A super-long batch of messed-up funky jazz from Eddie Harris! The record's got Eddie working all aspects of the electric sax – in a similar style to some of his other work on the best Atlantic albums of the 70s (like Instant Death of Plug It In) – and the group features a shifting cast ...

Eddie Harris

Live At Newport
Atlantic, 1971. Very Good-
Very cool sounds from the amazing Eddie Harris – a live set, cut at the popular Newport Jazz Festival – but one that's arguably even freakier and more freewheeling than some of Eddie's studio work for Atlantic! Eddie's horn is really plugged in for the set – a Varitone, which is ... LP, Vinyl record album

David Newman

Fathead Comes On
Atlantic, 1962. Very Good+
Early work from David Fathead Newman – so early, the cover has him listed as "Dave" on the front! The album steps nicely off Newman's early work with Ray Charles – and does plenty to establish him as a leader on his own – putting Newman's bold, soulful tenor right ... LP, Vinyl record album
Blue Note, 1965. Near Mint-
Important mid 60s work from Ornette – and one of the few recordings of this format to see larger release at the time! The set captures Ornette in a much freer style than heard on his Atlantic recordings from a few years before – paying alto, violin, and trumpet, in a trio with David ... LP, Vinyl record album
