LP, Vinyl record album


First volume pulled together in the early 80s of Brownie's remarkable work with a smoking quintet that would record some of the finest bop sides issued on the Emarcy label. He's working here with Max Roach, George Morrow and Richie Powell and Harold Land as Brown's foil in the front line. 14 tracks in all: "Delilah", "Parisian Thoroughfare", "Jordu", "Sweet Clifford", "Ghost Of A Chance", "Stompin' At The Savoy", "I Get A Kick Out Of You", "Joy Spring", "Mildama", "Daahoud", "Gerkin For Perkin", "Take The A Train", "Lands End" and "Swingin'".  © 1996-2017, Dusty Groove, Inc.

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.

Used Vinyl Grades

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, please note that all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:

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.

Clifford Brown All Stars
EmArcy, 1954. Very Good-
A key slice of Clifford Brown from the 50s – two long tracks both recorded in an open-ended jam session format, showing a side of Brown's powers that's even bolder and more inventive than some of his previous studio work! The album soars along beautifully – with Brownie in the lead ... LP, Vinyl record album

EmArcy, 1956. Near Mint-
One of the few albums ever recorded by one of our favorite alto players of the 50s! Dick Johnson is a real lost talent – a sharp-edge player who came from the same Boston scene as Charlie Mariano, and who had a similarly soulful approach! His tone is as sharp as that of Lee Konitz, but he ... LP, Vinyl record album
EmArcy, 1955. Very Good
A classic "with strings" session from Clifford Brown – nearly as well-done and perfect as some of Charlie Parker's sides for Verve, handled here with perhaps a slightly sweeter touch, as Neal Hefti's the man on arrangements. The core group's the Brown/Roach combo, augmented by a ... LP, Vinyl record album
