Live At Praxis 84 – Vol 3

LP (Item 36919) Praxis (Greece), 1984 — Condition: Near Mint-
An excellent live performance from the 80s – recorded during a time when the Arkestra was extremely tight, and really beginning to break big with audiences like the enthusiastic one heard at this festival in Athens. The individual tracks aren't listed on the LP – but the music is a mix of some of the older straighter Arkestra style, with another one that has the band grooving in kind of a modal soul jazz mode. The album really captures the group at their best in a live setting – playing a wide range of music with ease, driven onward by a very hapy audience!  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Original pressing! Cover has one slightly bumped corner, but is very nice overall – and vinyl is great.)

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.

One of Sun Ra's best non-Saturn live sets of the 70s – a nice little record that shows the group mixing it up with equal parts avant garde and straight ahead jazz, all handled in that ever-growing large group style that made them a real force to be reckoned with in a concert setting!

Swing Low, Sweet Cadillac
Impulse, 1967. Very Good Gatefold
A brilliant album of Latiny grooves from Diz!

Charles Earland

Black Talk!
Prestige, 1970. Near Mint-
A pivotal album in the development of the use of the Hammond organ in jazz – and Charles Earland's first exposure to a large audience!

Eddie Harris & Les McCann

Second Movement
Atlantic, 1971. Very Good
A massive batch of funky soul jazz – the Second Movement (to the first album Swiss Movement) of the collaboration of Eddie Harris and Les McCann!

Fantasy, 1958. Near Mint-
One of Cal Tjader's best late 50s dates for Fantasy Records – thanks to some smoking tenor sax from Jose "Chombo" Silva!

Stan Getz

Sweet Rain
Verve, 1967. Very Good Gatefold
One of Stan Getz's greatest records – no fooling! This gem often gets overlooked because it was issued in the years between Stan's bossa recordings and his later pop experiments – but trust us, it's a totally solid jazz album, with a quality level that was hardly ever matched by Getz ...

Originals

California Sunset
Motown, 1975. Near Mint-
One of our favorite albums by The Originals – and one of their most coherent albums on Motown! The record was produced by Lamont Dozier, who also wrote all the songs on the album for the group – and it's kind of a mix of Dozier's strident 70s update of the 60s Motown groove (which he'd ...

Joe Tex

Live & Lively
Atlantic, 1968. Very Good
A tasty live set, with a smoking raw groove that you don't always get on Joe's studio albums! The crowd really goes wild for Joe – and with only some small group backing behind him, he's got nothing left to do but go over the top with his vocals! As proof of that, the record includes the ...

Temptations

Cloud Nine
Gordy, 1969. Very Good
A masterpiece in psychedelic soul from The Temptations – perhaps the most perfectly realized album from their years working with Norman Whitfield! The set's awash in that bottom-heavy, rumbling funk mode that Whitfield brought to the group at the end of the 60s – served up in bold ... LP, Vinyl record album
