Theme From Exodus & Other Film Spectaculars

LP (Item 4967) Vee Jay, Early 60s — Condition: Very Good

A great groovy Eddie Harris record that follows up on his "Exodus" hit – but which is not the more famous album under a similar name! This set differs from that one, in that it features a shorter reading of "Exodus", plus other short songs from other films – all played by Eddie, backed by orchestra and a chorus of voices. The sound is nice and sharp, and the voices don't really get in the way, and instead give Eddie a nice fluffy background to cut through with his solos – in a very cool 60s-styled "sax with voices" sort of session! A great record – a lot nicer than it looks – and with tracks that include "Green Dolphin Street", "Tonite", "El Cid", and "Lawrence Of Arabia".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Rainbow label pressing with deep groove. Cover has a stained corner.)

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.



You might be interested


Atlantic, 1976. Very Good+
A very interesting album from Eddie Harris – one that's more of a comedy album than a jazz record – honest! Most of the record features Eddie performing his own comedy material – pretty blue stuff with lots of bad-rapping and profanity – possibly trying to cash in on the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Leroy Vinnegar

Jazz's Great Walker
Vee Jay, 1964. Near Mint- Gatefold
A wickedly soulful session from bassist Leroy Vinnegar – one that carries the same "walker" theme used in the titles of his Contemporary albums, but one that comes across with an even groovier feel overall! Vinnegar's definitely walking some great lines on his bass – a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Curtis Amy & Paul Bryant

Blues Message
Pacific Jazz, 1960. Very Good
Great LA soul jazz session featuring the deep Texas tenor of Curtis Amy and the funky organ of Paul Bryant! Also present is Roy Brewster, the great, under-recorded LA valve trombonist, whose playing here gives the session a nice round bottom. 5 long cuts, with earthy, bluesy solos, and a very ... LP, Vinyl record album

Roland Kirk with Jack McDuff

Funk Underneath (aka Kirk's Work)
Prestige, 1966. Near Mint-
A strange and tasty little album that Roland Kirk made with organist Jack McDuff in the early 60s – one of his few outings in such a format, and a smoking little session that almost makes us wish he'd cut more of them! The format is relatively simple – with lots of interplay between ... LP, Vinyl record album

Norman Connors

Love From The Sun
Buddah, 1973. Very Good+ Gatefold
A spiritual jazz masterpiece from drummer Norman Connors – one of those unique albums he cut before moving into soul music – done at a level that rivals the early 70s genius on labels like Strata East or Impulse Records! Connors worked with many contemporaries on those labels, and gets ... LP, Vinyl record album

Herbie Mann & The Afro-Jazz Sextet + Four Trumpets

Common Ground
Atlantic, 1960. Very Good+
A great little record, filled with loads of cross-cultural influences that make for one of the most exotic Herbie Mann albums of the 60s! The group's billed as the Afro-Jazz Sextet– but has a strong Latin vibe as well – a bit of an echo of the experiments Herbie Mann did with Latin ... LP, Vinyl record album

King Fleming Trio

Stand By
Argo, 1962. Very Good
Incredible work from Chicago pianist King Fleming – a lost talent that had a key influence on more famous players in the scene, but who rarely got his due because he hardly left the Windy City! The set's got a really incredible feel – partly in the gentle groove of Ahmad Jamal, but ... LP, Vinyl record album

Alphonse Mouzon

Mind Transplant
Blue Note, 1975. Very Good+
Drummer Alphonse Mouzon cut some of the hardest, heaviest fusion albums ever to hit the Blue Note label in the 70s – including this legendary powerhouse of a record! The set features Mouzon with one of his longtime partners – guitarist Tommy Bolin – hitting a hard-rocking, heavy ... LP, Vinyl record album

Deodato

Deodato 2
CTI, 1973. Near Mint- Gatefold
Funky keyboards galore – and one of the greatest records ever from this legendary Brazilian jazz talent! The album follows nicely off Deodato's Prelude classic for CTI – and like that one, this set's built on long-flowing tunes that rise and fall with a wonderful sense of rhythm – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Clarence Wheeler & the Enforcers

Love I've Been Looking For
Atlantic, 1971. Near Mint-
The second fantastic album from Chicago saxophonist Clarence Wheeler and his hard-hitting Enforcers combo – a group who were one of the brightest lights in soul jazz at the start of the 70s, really helping to keep the genre fresh and exciting! The groove here is in the tenor/organ mode first ... LP, Vinyl record album

Joe Henderson

Page One
Blue Note, 1963. Very Good
One of the first true moments of genius from tenorist Joe Henderson – his debut as a leader for Blue Note, and a set that already has him knocking it out of the park, and setting a tone for a whole new generation! Right at the start, Joe was as distinct a saxophonist as recent predecessors ... LP, Vinyl record album

Imaginations

Imaginations
20th Century, Mid 70s. Very Good+
An excellent group soul from Chicago – and no wonder, since The Imaginations were previously Brighter Side Of Darknes, a sublime falsetto harmony group who had a huge hit in 1972 with "Love Jones". This record's very much in the vein of that song – but also features a ... LP, Vinyl record album
