Time For Blues

LP (Item 496489) Mainstream, 1972 — Condition: Very Good+
Gatefold

A really interesting setting for the vocals and guitar of bluesman Arbee Stidham – set up here in front of a larger ensemble led by Ernie Wilkins, who brings in some nice currents of funk and soul as well! The recording quality is quite faithful – Stidham's guitar is way out front of a lot of the backings, in a style that's similar to the way that ABC was handling BB King – and in a way, the instrument almost has more presence on the record than Arbee's vocals, which are a bit more restrained. Titles include "Mr Texas & Pacific", "Meet Me Halfway", "Let Me Love You", "Let's Take The Long Way Home", "Don't Look For Me Baby", and "Standin In My Window".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover is lightly stained on the bottom inch.)

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.
