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.

EMI (UK), 1967. Near Mint-
A brilliant bit of psychedelia – still as fresh today as it was many decades back – and the crowning achievement of Pink Floyd during the early Syd Barrett years! The album's got all the best elements of the group firmly in place – the penchant for long-jamming tracks that still ... LP, Vinyl record album

Tim Buckley

Goodbye & Hello
Elektra, 1967. Near Mint- Gatefold
Easily one of our favorite albums by Tim Buckley – and a record that really opens up with some key jazzy touches! Buckley's still got his roots in folk here, and his vocals are yet to hit the extremes of Starsailor or Lorca – but there's also a new sense of inflection to the way he ... LP, Vinyl record album
Kapp, Late 1950s. Near Mint-
Great work from this late 50s rocker – a set that includes the title classic in two versions, plus fourteen more nuggets from back in the day – most of them originals! LP, Vinyl record album

Treasure

Treasure
Epic, 1977. Very Good
An interesting mix of 70s radio ready rock and harder edged numbers from Treasure – a group featuring vocals, keys and synth from one time Young Rascal Felix Cavaliere – and hard rock guitar guru Vinnie Cusano, later to go by Vinnie Vincent and join Kiss! The sound is catchy and tailor ... LP, Vinyl record album
Steeplechase/Inner City, 1976. Near Mint-
Wonderful work from Anthony Braxton – an album that has him playing straight ahead jazz – but at a time when he was also making some of his most complex recordings of the 70s! The approach here is sublime – as Braxton's reputation has ears already anticipating some far-out ... LP, Vinyl record album
Blue Note, 1957. Near Mint-
A stellar early Johnny Griffin recording for Blue Note, and one that features the young tenor genius from Chicago working alongside the equally fantastic John Coltrane and Hank Mobley – plus some additional trumpet from Lee Morgan, and rock-solid rhythm from Wynton Kelly, Paul Chambers, and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Stan Getz & Astrud Gilberto

Getz Au Go Go
Verve, 1964. Very Good- Gatefold
A beautiful dreamy album that's quite different from the classic Getz/Gilberto collaboration – but which also shares much of that set's lyrical beauty! This album was recorded live, in 1964, when Stan Getz was playing with his quartet that included Gary Burton on vibes – an incredible ... LP, Vinyl record album

Elmer Bernstein

Staccato
Capitol, 1959. Very Good-
A great lost crime jazz soundtrack – penned by Elmer Bernstein in the style of some of his best work from the 50s! There's a real Man With The Golden Arm feel here – as the orchestra rises and falls in a mode matching the Staccato title – and solos break out with a fluid and ... LP, Vinyl record album
