Newport Uproar

LP (Item 496994) RCA, 1968 — Condition: Sealed

A lively little concet performance from the Lionel Hampton group – with Hamp himself on vibes, plus piano and drums – and a lineup that includes Snooky Young and Joe Newman on trumpets, Al Grey and Garnett Brown on trombones, Billy Mackel on guitar – and Jerome Richardson, Frank Foster, and Eddie Pazant on saxes!  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(180 gram pressing – on Pure Pleasure.)

Sealed

This is what it says, that the record is still held fast in shrink-wrap. We tend to be pretty suspicious about these things, so if the shrink-wrap doesn't look original, or if the record seems to have undergone some damage over time, we'll probably take it out of the wrapper to ensure that it's in good shape — which is why we don't have more of these. In some cases the shrink-wrap may be torn in spots, but if it's not possible the record has been taken out and played, the record will still qualify as "Sealed".

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.

A warm and wonderful 60s session from Lionel Hampton – recorded in a personal and intimate way, one that even surpasses his great small combo sides of the 50s!
