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.

Chinatown
Warner, 1980. Very Good+
Damn anthemic rock from Thin Lizzy – one of the few 70s groups who seemed to get better as they got older!

Vanilla Fudge

Vanilla Fudge
Atco, 1967. Near Mint-
One of the coolest concepts for a record in the 60s – and a set that's the first, and maybe crowning achievement of Vanilla Fudge! The set's mighty trippy – and often offers up very weird, fuzzy remakes of songs that were more mainstream hits for other artists in the 60s – tunes ... LP, Vinyl record album

Whenever A Teenager Cries
World Artists, Mid 60s. Very Good+
One of the grooviest girl groups of the 60s – a fab trio who hailed from Brooklyn, and who worked in the best sweet styles of both soul and rock groups of the time! Reparata & The Delrons have a sound that's a real cut above the usual – a way of handling a tune that's free of some ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lester Radio Corporation, 1979. Near Mint-
Pure genius from the B Baker Chocolate Company – a set that's equal parts fusion and soul, held together by these rich arrangements that really send the whole thing home!

Dakota Staton

I've Been There
Capitol, Late 60s. Near Mint-
A cool album of tracks that has Dakota singing with a bit tighter arrangement than usual, in sort of a pop soul jazz bag, like some of the other Capitol singers at the time who were working with HB Barnum and David Axelrod. The album includes Dakota's groovy track "Young Generation" ... LP, Vinyl record album
