Eddie's Function

LP (Item 454572) Bethlehem, 1956/1957 — Condition: Very Good+

Excellent early sides originally cut for King by Lockjaw, working in tight small group formats with Shirley Scott and Doc Bagby. Some of the trios are augmented with conga by Ray Baretto, but all the tracks pop nicely, and since these were originally cut for issue on 45s, there's an economy to the playing to get everything said in a short span of time. A dozen numbers in all, including "Eddie's Function", "People Will Say We're In Love", "I Wanna Be Loved", "Satin Doll", "You Are Too Beautiful", "Lady Bird", "Scotty Boo", "Ebb Tide", "Tiajuana", "Out Of Nowhere", "All Of You" and "All The Things You Are".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight 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.

Mainstream, 1972. Very Good+ Gatefold
One of the bolder records from tenor saxophonist Paul Jeffrey – a player from the east coast scene who recorded most strongly for Mainstream records in the early 70s!

Root Down
Verve, 1972. Very Good+
Once an overlooked late Verve album, now a solid classic – and easily one of the funkiest albums ever from organist Jimmy Smith!

Blue Note, 1968. Very Good+
Lean, righteous blowing from the legendary Frank Foster – one of a handful of extremely hip sessions he cut in the 60s under his own name!

Clyde
Atlantic, Late 50s. Poor
We'll be the first to admit that for years, we never forgave Clyde McPhatter for leaving The Drifters – but as time has gone on, hearing records like this really have made us appreciate his greatness on his own! The record's a non-stop testament to McPhatter's vocal talents – a perfect ... LP, Vinyl record album
RCA, 1981. Near Mint-
A modern soul gem produced by Lenny White! Though White lends a touch of jazzy sophistication to the set, it's a straight up dose of mainstream modern soul, with great ensemble vocals and crisp production over tight songs that should have landed Wax at the top of the radio. Somehow though they ... LP, Vinyl record album
