Still On The Planet

LP (Item 41592) Muse, 1976 — Condition: Very Good

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".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

Quite a popular live album from Ella – recorded in Berlin at the height of the cold war years – featuring a famous recording of "Mack The Knife" that almost blew away Bobby Darin's hit with the cut!

Gypsy
World Pacific, 1962. Very Good

Very obscure work by Al Hibbler – a collection issued in the 50s, but which appears to include work from earlier years, as the style and sound varies a bit from track to track.
