Luba – Chi Jazz

LP (Item 30822) Erect, 1981 — Condition: Near Mint-

An obscure bit of Chicago jazz – featuring vocalist Luba Raushiek, kind of a self-styled spiritualist, with an approach that hits both traditional modes, and more far-out soulful ones – running through styles that range from Leon Thomas to Billy Eckstine, as was typical for a small club vocalist like this. The record's not great – but it's a valuable bit of Chicago jazz, as Raushiek did sing in quite a few of the city's clubs in the 70s and 80s, and he's helped here by players like John Young, Ari Brown, and Von Freeman. Titles include "Impressions", "Well You Needn't", "Enterprise", and "Love Makes The World Go Round".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

Polydor (Norway), Mid 70s. Near Mint-
Incredible work from Scandinavian singer Karin Krog!
