One of those 70s two-fers where Prestige went back and decided dicing up all those sessions in the 50s and 60s didn't make as much sense as issuing them as the way they went down. As such, this set collects work from one long blowing session, which eventually saw the light of day as two separate albums, Soul Junction and All Morning Long. The sides are a great meeting point between 50s hard bop and some of the looser, earthier styles that were beginning to show up in the first years of soul jazz! Red Garland works here with a super solid quintet featuring John Coltrane and Donald Byrd in the front plus Art Taylor and Jamil Nasser in the rhythm section. 8 numbers in all, including the very lengthy "Soul Junction" and "All Morning Long", plus "Woody'N You", "Birk's Works", "I've Got It Bad", "They Can't Take That Away FromMe", "Our Delight" and "Hallelujah". (Cover has light ringwear. Vinyl plays with a short click on side one, tracks 1 & 2.)  © 1996-2016, 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.
