Second Wind

LP (Item 40058) RCA, 1972 — Condition: Very Good-

A brilliant jazz rock jammer from Brian Auger – recorded here with a bit more effects than usual, in a nicely tripped-out way that makes us forgive the vocals and really get into the grooves of the tunes! The group seems even tighter than ever – but never too slick or rocking – just focused on a core grooving style of keyboards, bass, guitar, and drums – topped off by some processed vocals on most numbers, but done in a way that glides along with the electric feel of the tracks. The set includes a great remakes of "Freedom Jazz Dance" – quite possibly the funkiest we've ever heard – plus the cuts "Second Wind", "Don't Look Away", "Just You Just Me", and "Truth".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Orange label pressing. Vinyl has a number of light marks but still plays well. Cover has ring and edge wear, split seams, and clear tape remnants across the bottom seam.)

Very Good - (minus)

  • Vinyl may be dirty, and can lack a fair amount of luster.
  • Vinyl can have a number of marks, either in clusters or smaller amounts, but deeper.
  • This is the kind of record that you'd buy to play, but not because it looked that great. Still, the flaws should be mostly cosmetic, with nothing too deep that would ruin the overall record.
  • Examples include a record that has been kept for a while in a cover without the paper sleeve, or heavily played by a previous owner and has some marks across the surface. The record should play okay, though probably with surface noise.

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.

70s repackaging of Desmond Blue – a cool jazz classic from altoist Paul Desmond and guitarist Jim Hall! The album was recorded under Desmond's name, but Hall's the guitarist throughout, and his playing lends an indescribably wonderful edge to the set, making the album a real team effort! ...

Guy Lafitte

Sugar & Spice
RCA (France), 1972. Near Mint-
A rich, warm session from French tenor giant Guy Lafitte – one of the most soulful players to come out of the Paris scene of the postwar years, and a player with a sound that's somewhere between Coleman Hawkins and Ben Webster! Lafitte's really in his element here – blowing wonderfully ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sonny Rollins

What's New?
RCA, 1962. Very Good
A very unique album from Sonny Rollins – one that features him blowing tenor over some Latin-based rhythms that have a tight uptempo feel. The core group on the album features Jim Hall on guitar, Bob Cranshaw on bass, and Ben Riley on drums – but they're augmented by larger ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gary Burton Trio

New Vibe Man In Town
RCA, 1961. Near Mint-
The first-ever album from vibist Gary Burton – a very young player at the time of recording, but one who's definitely worth the "new vibe man" promised in the title! The style here is maybe a bit more conventionally swinging than some of Burton's records from later years – a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Phil Woods

Floresta Canto
RCA, 1976. Sealed
One of those great records from the 70s that makes you say "man, Phil Woods was hip!" The session was cut in London with an electrified big band led by Chris Gunning, and featuring keyboards by the groovy Gordon Beck – kind of a blend of strings, keys, and woodwinds – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Charles Mingus

New Tijuana Moods
Bluebird/RCA, 1957/1986. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
Oh how we love this one! This killer 2LP set takes one of Mingus' best-ever records, and makes it even better! The original Tijuana Moods album was recorded in 1957 but not released until 1962 – and the record features one of Mingus' strongest groups ever, with Shafi Hadi on alto and ...

Afro-Cuban Influence
RCA, 1958. Very Good+
A wonderful album of Latin grooves from Shorty! The record is one of his best, and features a whopping array of percussionists – including Carlos Vidal, Modesto Duran, and Mike Pacheco all coming into play with Shorty's west coast style of arrangements, tweaked greatly here to pick up an ...

Clarke Boland Big Band

Jazz Is Universal
Atlantic, 1962. Very Good+
Great early genius from the Clarke Boland Big Band – proof that Kenny and Francy were onto something great, right from the start! The album really has the group hitting the heights of their MPS years – stretching out way past earlier big band modes, into the hip mix of rhythms and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Pat Metheny

First Circle
ECM, 1984. Near Mint-
Arguably the last great album to come from the classic Pat Metheny collaboration with Lyle Mays – a record that's tightened up considerably from some of the group's earlier efforts, but which gives as its reward some wonderfully compelling tunes! Pat's still very much influenced here by a ... LP, Vinyl record album
