One of the Jimmy Smith "jam session" Blue Notes, with a large group that includes Lee Morgan, Lou Donaldson, George Coleman, Tina Brooks, and Art Blakey – nearly all of whom take long solos and dig deep to compete with each other. 3 long tracks, "The Sermon", "JOS", and "Flamingo" – and a hard-wailing, jam session, cutting contest, blowing session feel all the way through! (63rd street mono pressing with deep groove. Cover has light wear and aging.)  © 1996-2015, Dusty Groove, Inc.


  • 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.

Blue Note, 1974. Very Good+
Massive keyboard work from Ronnie Foster – one of his sweet funky 70s sets for Blue Note – and a killer all the way through! Ronnie plays a host of cool keys – Hammond, clavinet, and moog – and he's working here with tight production from George Benson, who really helps ... LP, Vinyl record album

Memphis Soul
Philips, Late 60s. Very Good
Instrumental organ tracks – done in a mode that's a bit like Booker T & The MGs, with a similar laidback groove, but perhaps a bit less of the tightness of that combo. There's a couple of covers, like "Green Onions" (of course) and "Mercy Mercy Mercy", plus some good ... LP, Vinyl record album
