Sunstroke

LP (Item 476844) Muse, 1979 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.50 5

A lost late 70s gem from Muse Records – one of the few albums we've ever seen from vibist Charlie Shoemake, a really great player with a heavy dose of soul! Charlie's working here with a warm trio that includes Kenny Barron on piano, Cecil McBee on bass, and Al Foster on drums – a group who'd be more than great enough on their own, but who sound even more wonderful in the company of Shoemake's sharp-edged vibes. The date recalls some of Barron's later recordings with vibes, but also has a bit more 70s warmth too – and titles include "Sunstroke", "That's Earl Brother", "This Happy Madness", "You'll Love New York", and "42nd Street Changes".

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.

Used Vinyl Grades

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, please note that all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:

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.

Very nice bit of trippy electric jazz cuts by this short-lived group that included Michael White, Mike Nock, and Eddie Marshall. Nock's Fender Rhodes playing is excellent, and he spins out lots of blocky rhythmic chords – especially on the title track, "Sun & Moon Have Come ... LP, Vinyl record album

A nice little funk album from Eddie – one that shouldn't work, but does nicely, thanks to a unique approach to the groove! Eddie's still playing plenty of electric sax on the set – and is going for a sound here that's equal parts soul jazz, modal groove, and down and dirty funk! The ... LP, Vinyl record album
