Quintet Vol 1

LP (Item 391860) EmArcy/Mercury, Mid 50s — Condition: Near Mint-
2LP Gatefold

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'".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has an index label with clear tape on the spine.)

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.
