Jazz Rock Symposium

LP (Item 36373) Anvil, Early 70s — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album

4.60 5

Tasty funky jazz – with kind of a groovy 60s edge to it! The band's a lot more jazz than rock, but that element is taken care of nicely with some fuzzy electric guitars and heavy work on the bass. Most of the tracks are covers of 60s pop tunes, and they're given some hip arrangements by Joe Renzetti that are kind of in an underground New York easy kind of mode. The record's got great versions of heavy rock classics like "Sunshine Superman", "Touch Me", "Sunshine Of Your Love", and "Hello, I Love You" – all of which retain the fuzziness of the originals, yet have some breakaway jazz solos amidst the larger band arrangements. (Cover has some wear.)  © 1996-2015, 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, please note that 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.

Boss Is Back!
Prestige, 1969. Near Mint-
In "back", the title is pointing to the fact that Gene Ammons is back on the scene, after being released from 7 years of a tragic 15 year narcotics sentence in prison.

Feels So Good
Kudu, 1975. Near Mint-
An incredible batch of electric funk from Grover Washington Jr – easily one of his best albums ever! The record really picks up from the sweet CTI sound of the 70s – taking Bob James arrangements with a lot of space and electric keyboards, and letting Groover blow some wonderfully ...

Merl Saunders
Fantasy, 1974. Very Good
We have to admit we've always been somewhat dismissive of Merl Saunders 70s records, perhaps because of the hippy association we have with these bay area recordings. But ultimately there's at least a little bit of funk peeking through on any of his Fantasy recordings, which gets a nice helping ... LP, Vinyl record album
