Rush Hour

LP (Item 33299) Philadelphia International, 1979 — Condition: Very Good

A very obscure album on Philly International – and a rare Gamble-Huff blues session, cut by the legendary Bobby Rush. Chicago blues singer Bobby had been knocking around indie labels for the better part of the 70s, then strangely got the chance to work for Philly at the end of the decade – and the result is a compelling batch of tracks that mix blues and modern soul production, in a style that would soon become Bobby's big calling card in the underground of modern blues in which he still works heavily. Tracks include "No Axe Ta Grind", "I Can't Find My Keys", "Let's Do It Together", "Evil Is", "Intermission", and "Hey Western Union Man".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.

His Greatest Sides
Chess, Late 50s. Sealed
Raw, ragged, rough, and ready – killer early work by Bo Diddley, clearly in a class by itself!
