Light My Fire

LP (Item 2734) Impulse, Late 60s — Condition: Near Mint-
Gatefold

Excellent grooviness – and typical of the mad instrumental LPs that showed up on Impulse when they weren't cutting high-minded jazz! The record has a nice mix of easy funky jazz and pop psychedelia – performed by a range of groovy players conducted by Bob Thiele, and featuring Tom Scott & The California Dreamers, Bill Plummer, and Gabor Szabo. There's a nice cool version of "Fakin It", plus Charles Lloyd's "Forest Flower", "Light My Fire", and "Eight Miles High". Very groovy!  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Rainbow label stereo pressing with Van Gelder stamp. Cover has a cutout hole and is bent a bit with some gloss separation at the top left 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.

Constant Throb
Impulse, 1971. Near Mint- Gatefold
One of the hippest albums that John Klemmer ever cut – a tremendous little set that's quite worthy of inclusion in the early 70s Impulse Records generation – and which is far different than any of his smoother sessions from later years! Klemmer's picking up bits of Coltrane here, but ... LP, Vinyl record album

Fantastic – and one of Mingus' greatest albums ever!

His Greatest Years Vol 3
Impulse, 1960s. Very Good- 2LP Gatefold
A 2 LP retrospective of some of the more spiritual exploratory sides 'Trane was cutting in the mid to late '60's for Impulse. A number of cuts feature the classic quartet with Jimmy Garrison, McCoy Tyner & Elvin Jones, but a few feature some of the later lineups with Pharoah Sanders, Reggie ... LP, Vinyl record album
Impulse, 1965. Near Mint-
A tremendous little album from Sonny Rollins – one of his most sharp-edged sessions of the mid 60s, and a bold departure from some of his previous work for RCA! The album has a crackling sense of energy that more than lives up to the exclamation point in the title – a starker quality ... LP, Vinyl record album
Impulse, 1964. Very Good- Gatefold
A great little album – a lot better than you might think from the concept! After the death of JFK, Oliver Nelson penned this extremely strong tribute to the man – featuring snippets of speeches made by Kennedy during his time in office as president, used as bridges between jazz based ...

Impulse, 1964. Very Good- Gatefold
A really great little album – one that really gets at the bright, joyous feel that Clark Terry brings to his music! Despite the "happy" in the title – which might make you think this one would be a bit silly – the album's a pretty great record! Terry plays both trumpet ... LP, Vinyl record album

Impulse, 1965. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
An excellent set that features rare work from a mid 60s quartet that did not feature the drumming of Elvin Jones – including a number of tracks that had not yet been issued before the time of the LP. All titles are played by a quartet that include Coltrane, McCoy Tyner, Jimmy Garrison, and ... LP, Vinyl record album
