Mose Allison Plays For Lovers

LP (Item 405675) Prestige, Late 50s/Early 60s — Condition: Very Good

A strange title, but the record's a pretty nice collection of Mose Allison's early work for Prestige – a collection that focuses only on his instrumental work as a pianist, and doesn't include any of his better-known vocals! Mose is a pretty great talent on the keys, and these tracks have him stretching out in a way that doesn't always occur on his vocal-oriented sessions – always in trio formation with mostly Addison Farmer on bass, and a variety of drummers that include Ronnie Free, Frank Isola, and Nick Stabulas. Titles include "It's Crazy", "You Belong To Me", "Somebody Else Is Taking My Place", "My Kinda Love", "Strange", "Kissin Bug", and "If I Didn't Care".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Blue label pressing in a high-gloss cover, with some marker on the back.)

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • 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.

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.

Richard Groove Holmes

Soul Message
Prestige, 1965. Very Good-
A key album in the career of Richard Groove Holmes – his first session ever for Prestige Records, and the one that yielded the monster crossover hit version of "Misty"!

Jack McDuff

Silk & Soul
Prestige, 1965. Very Good
Brother Jack's organ is set amidst an amazing batch of orchestrations by Benny Golson, and the core of the group is Jack's combo with Red Hollway, George Benson, and Joe Dukes. Golson's arrangements are fantastic, and far from surpressing or overpowering the combo's funky jazz sound, they actually ... LP, Vinyl record album

John Coltrane

Last Trane
Prestige, 1957/1958. Sealed
A nice set – despite being kind of a put-together batch of tunes! The album's titled "The Last Trane" because it represents the last material that Prestige Records had in its vault from the time that John Coltrane was recording for the label in the late 50s. Titles were recorded ... LP, Vinyl record album
Prestige, Late 50s. Very Good 2LP Gatefold
A great 2LP set that reissues two of the best blowing sessions on Prestige from the late 50s – All Day Long and All Night Long – proof that Kenny Burrell could hit a nice groove when he wanted to! The tracks are all long and very open-ended, with players that include Mal Waldron, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Impulse, 1972. Near Mint- Gatefold
One of the most spiritual albums recorded by Pharoah Sanders for Impulse – an open-ended and free-thinking exploration of ideas, all very much in the late John Coltrane mode!
