Great later work from vocalist Eddie Jefferson! Although the title of this one might be read as a haunting premonition of Eddie's untimely early death, the grooves within show nothing of the tragedy that was to overtake him a few years later. Hard swingin' jazz vocal stuff, put together by one of the few true masters of the genre. Eddie vocalizes all over the place on a set of material that runs from bop classics like "Workshop" and "Orinthology", to modern groovers like his great reworking of Herbie Hancock's "Chameleon". Richie Cole's on alto and Mickey Tucker's on keyboards, and the set also includes "Zap! Carnivorous" and "Keep Walkin". (White label promo.)  © 1996-2015, 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.

One of Louie's greatest albums ever – a hard-swingin batch of vocal group tunes, with all the sound that made him famous!

Pride, 1974. Near Mint-
A record that's way way different than the sound of Jimmy Smith Blue Note work – and a much-loved set by fans of 70s funk! Jimmy's organ is still very strongly out front of the arrangements – but it's soaring over the top of grooves done by Jerry Peters and Michael "Incredible ... LP, Vinyl record album

Blue Note, 1966. Very Good
An album of subtle genius and stellar soul from the great Stanley Turrentine – an over looked quartet date that plays with the sharper edge of some of his earlier work for Blue Note, but which also shows the growing sense of color and tone he'd picked up during the 60s! The group here is ... LP, Vinyl record album
