Mose Allison Plays For Lovers

LP (Item 405675) Prestige, Late 50s/Early 60s — Condition: Near Mint-

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".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Blue trident label stereo pressing with Van Gelder stamp.)

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.

Mose Allison

Down Home Piano
Prestige, 1958. Very Good
An all-instrumental set from Mose Allison – one that drops out his familiar jazz vocals, and really brings a nice focus to his energy on the keys of the piano!

John Coltrane

Stardust
Prestige, 1958. Very Good+
A mellow soulful classic by John Coltrane – and one of his best-remembered early albums for Prestige!

Kharma
Prestige, 1975. Near Mint-

New Jazz/Prestige, 1960. Near Mint-

Soprano Sax
Prestige, 1957. Very Good+
A stone classic from Steve Lacy – a record that was nearly as important to the soprano sax in jazz as it was to Lacy in his career!
