CCS (CCS 2)

LP (Item 385050) RAK, 1972 — Condition: Near Mint-
A genius moment in the jazz rock era – funky big band work supported by hard-wailing guitars – in a blend of modes that was hardly carried off better at the time! A big part of the strength of the set comes from arranger John Cameron – who we love for both his own modern jazz work, and his countless contributions to the sound library and Brit easy scene of the time. Here, he's working with a great sense of punch and rhythm – kicking the larger group of horns up with a funky undercurrent that's great. Alexis Korner is on vocals on some cuts – but the real strength of the record is in the instrumentation – which is nicely funky on the best numbers! Titles include "Chaos – Can We Ever Get It Back", "This Is My Life", "Misunderstood", "Running Out Of Sky", "I Want You Back", "Maggie's Song", "Black Dog", and "Brother".  © 1996-2024, 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.

MPS, 1975. Very Good+
One of George Duke's best albums for the MPS label – and a set that has a sound that's a little bit more soul than before! The album uses a fair bit of vocals alongside Duke's funky keyboards – but in a way that's not nearly as smooth as some of his albums for Epic, and which still ... LP, Vinyl record album
