MF Horn Two

LP (Item 47123) Columbia, 1972 — Condition: Very Good+

Soaring big band work from trumpeter Maynard Ferguson – one of his key albums done with help from Brit Easy genius Keith Mansfield! Mansfield really helped Ferguson reinvent the sound of his big band at the end of the 60s – taking the sometimes modern, sometimes brassy sound of his earlier work and forging it into a tighter groove that often had a nice bit of bounce at the bottom – a slightly funky sound that made Maynard sound hipper than ever, and which also brought in a nice dose of electric keyboards and guitar to groove things up. Arrangements are by Kenny Wheeler, Mansfield, and Adrian Drover – and titles include "Give It One", "Hey Jude", "The Summer Knows", "Mother", "Spinning Wheel", "Shaft", and "Free Wheeler".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has light wear.)

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.
