Equinox Express Elevator

LP (Item 4464) Impulse/ABC, 1975 — Condition: Near Mint-
Gatefold

We love this record – and for the keyboards as much as for the guitar! Although Howard Roberts has always been known around here as a great funky guitarist who's made some pretty sweet records, this record is totally unlike anything else he did in the early days, and it will blow your mind! The whole thing is sort of a complicated electronic instrumental suite in the David Axelrod mode – with Roberts playing crazy guitar over weird electronic passages and jazzy changes that are slow, spooky, and just ripe for sampling and production work. Roberts even plays a bit of moog guitar himself – and other keyboards include Fender Rhodes from Mike Wofford, organ from Dave Grusin, and more moog from Ed Michel! Titles include "Harold J Ostly The County Tax Assessor", "TTTT", "The Single On This Side", "Unfolding In", "Timelaps", "Slam", and "Mavro".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(In great shape!)

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.

Byablue
Impulse, 1976. Near Mint-
There's a nicely warming vibe on this album from Keith Jarrett – a sound that's sometimes a bit more laidback and personal, but which is still carried off with familiar associates Dewey Redman on tenor, Charlie Haden on bass, and Paul Motian on drums!

Memphis Jackson
Impulse, 1970. Near Mint- Gatefold
One of the grooviest albums ever from the legendary Milt Jackson – an upbeat, almost funky set of soul jazz tracks – played with some great grooves on the bottom!
