May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean,
and not too dirty.
May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play,
but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep.
Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well,
with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song,
but never throughout a whole song or more.
This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times,
but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

A live recording of Charles Bobo Shaw's AACM inspired Human Arts Ensemble, then a quintet, breaking down into trios, with Shaw joined by Joseph Bowie on trombone and James Emery on electric guitar for this side. As with other recordings by the Human Arts, they explore free modes of playing over ... LP, Vinyl record album
A great early album by this oft-overlooked spiritual avant group that included Lester Bowie, Oliver Lake, JD Parran, and Charles Bobo Shaw. The album was later issued on Arista – but this is a small pressing, done for the Universal Justice label in St Louis, home to the group. Side one ... LP, Vinyl record album
More of a soul album than a jazz album – and a stripped-down mellow set that has Les singing and playing keyboards with a quartet that includes Miroslaw Kudykowski on guitar. Cuts include "Everywhere I Go, People Ask Me a Question", "Woman, Come Home", "I've Been ... LP, Vinyl record album
Classic early Ayler material, recorded in Copenhagen in 1964, at the same time as his earliest recordings issued on the Debut label! The album stands as one of Ayler's most powerful, and with performances that hint strongly at the ESP recordings that would follow shortly, and have become more well ... LP, Vinyl record album
One of the key records from the Cadet/Concept scene in late 60s Chicago – a tremendous collaboration between pianist Ramsey Lewis and arranger Charles Stepney – and the kind of record that took soul and jazz to a whole new level! Ramsey on his own is great enough at this point – ... LP, Vinyl record album
A great 70s album by Roland Kirk – one that features him working on a lot of short tracks, in a pretty crazy style! A number of the tracks feature Kirk's uniquely quirky reed style in full effect – often processed with added studio techniques, in a very nice way. And along side that ... LP, Vinyl record album
A gem of a record from Chico Hamilton – maybe our favorite album ever from the legendary drummer! The set's a fantastic bit of nuttiness, with Chico leading a tight group with Steven Potts on alto and Russell Andrews on tenor, both playing hard over a subdued background of four trombones ... LP, Vinyl record album
Nice laid-back blowing session tracks for Prestige, ostensibly led by Donald Byrd and Kenny Burrell, though the label may just have been capitalizing on their names on the cover. Players include Byrd, Hank Mobley, Mal Waldron, Paul Quinichette, Art Taylor and Sonny Red in a number of different ... LP, Vinyl record album
One of the last records that Booker Ervin ever recorded, and one of the best! There's a depth of tone and conception here that goes far beyond even Ervin's already-great albums for Prestige – a mix of modernism and soulful expression that really points the way towards jazz expression in the ... LP, Vinyl record album
One of our favorite Ramsey Lewis albums of all time – an incredible reworking of tunes by The Beatles, done in collaboration with Cadet Records studio maestro Charles Stepney – who brings in some amazing arrangements and production styles to the record! The tunes are familiar, but the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Out trio material recorded at a German festival in 1978. One long suite called "The Mass On the World", with Bobby Naughton on vibes and Dwight Andrews on saxes alongside Leo Smith on brass, split into 5 parts, and a shorter improvisation entitles "Kweli (Truth)". Excellent ... LP, Vinyl record album
