Dave Brubeck Trio (Fantasy 3-1) (10 inch LP)

LP (Item 407901) Fantasy, Early 50s — Condition: Used
(€- || £- || ¥-) (approx.)

Early stuff from Dave – recorded back when his core trio featured a young Cal Tjader! Cal plays here on vibes and drums – and it's interesting to hear how much Latin and exotic influences he had even at this young age. His playing makes the tracks perhaps a bit more whimsical than the usual Brubeck outing, and the overall sound is a lot different than the late 50s work from Dave on Columbia. Cal even seems to play a bit of bongos at times – and titles include "Body & Soul", "Lullaby In Rhythm", "Laura", "You Stepped Out Of A Dream", "Singin' In The Rain", "I'll Remember April" and "Let's Fall In Love". (Black vinyl pressing, in heavy textured cover – which is in nice shape.)  © 1996-2017, Dusty Groove, Inc.

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.

Used Vinyl Grades

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, please note that all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:

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.
