LP, Vinyl record album

(€17.69 || £15.26 || ¥2210) (approx.)

Totally groovy work from John Dankworth – a 70s album that features slightly electrified versions of some of his older film and TV themes! The approach is quite different than the originals at times – with horn passages that are even quirkier, and some cool use of electric piano by Tony Hymas, which really sets the mood of the best tracks. The album's best known for its funky break version of "Modesty Blaise" – made famous by a sample from Del – but the whole thing's pretty great, both if you dig soundtrack work, and if you like the cooler big band styles of the British scene. Titles include "Modesty Blaise", "Long John", "Look Stranger", "Whirly Birly", "Round Table Round", "Herbie Walks Again", "All Gone", and "Morgan".

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.

A 70s budget reissue of What'[s New?, a very unique album from Sonny Rollins – one that features him blowing tenor over some Latin-based rhythms that have a tight uptempo feel.

A heavy-hitting, full-on prog fusion record from this Italian group – and probably their tightest effort of the early years!

Hardly the kind of country roads you'd find traveled by other musicians – as Gary Burton's sound here is incredibly fresh – still as groundbreaking now as it was back in the 60s!

Excellent early west coast material – and some of the greatest work that Shorty Rogers ever put on record!

Oh how we love this album – and we think it may well be the best album ever from Charles Mingus! The set was recorded in that magical Mingus year of 1957, but oddly not released until 1962 – missing some of the initial frenzy of his discovery during the Atlantic and Columbia years. ...

A great set, and one of the few obscure sides of west coast jazz from Jack Montrose (not to be confused with east coast player JR Montrose).
