Of Course Of Course

LP (Item 2874) Columbia, 1965 — Condition: Used

Key work by one of the most unique voices in 60s mainstream jazz – reedman Charles Lloyd, heard here on a set that's filled with amazing sounds, tones, and timings! The group here features Gabor Szabo on guitar – Lloyd's previous partner from the Chico Hamilton combo – plus Ron Carter on bass, and Tony Williams on drums – the latter two of whom have a great ear for the already-unusual sense of rhythm that Lloyd and Szabo picked up when working with Chico – and who also seem to bring in just a bit more "new thing" edge to the record. Lloyd plays both flute and tenor – the latter of which sounds sharper here than we remember – and titles include the cuts "Of Course, Of Course", "3rd Floor Richard", "Apex", "Goin' To Memphis", and "One For Joan". (Original 2 eye mono pressing – in great shape!)  © 1996-2018, Dusty Groove, Inc.

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.

Used Vinyl Grades

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:

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.
