Blues Walk

LP (Item 2962) Blue Note, 1958 — Condition: Good
(€21.00 || £18.79 || ¥2792) (approx.)

One of the best of Lou's earlier Blue Note albums – a hard-wailing soul jazz set with some very hip conga in the mix! The group's a really solid one – Lou's famous early quartet – and Herman Foster plays piano, Peck Morrison's on bass, and Dave Bailey's on drums. A young Ray Barretto plays conga on the set, and rounds things out nicely – not really with a Latin finish, but kind of a rolling groove that works to create more of a lightly dancing feel in the rhythm section. The whole thing's perfectly put together – and tracks include "Play Ray", "Callin' All Cats", and "Blues Walk". (Mono 63rd street pressing, with deep groove, RVG stamp, and ear. Cover has a heavy flaky stain and corrosion at the top of the spine, with staining along the spine.)  © 1996-2017, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Good

  • A record that you'd buy to play, cheap, but which you wouldn't buy for collecting.
  • Will have marks across all parts of the playing surface, and will most likely play with surface noise throughout. May have some other significant flaws, such as residue, or a track that skips.
  • In most cases, a poor quality copy of a very difficult to find record.

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.
