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.
Like Dave Brubeck's legendary Time Out set? Try this one – a great record that takes off from the concept of the first, but which goes in some very fresh new directions – using the same great group with Paul Desmond on alto, Eugene Wright on bass, and Joe Morello on drums! Dave's ... LP, Vinyl record album
With Narada Michael Walden on drums, percussion, and organ; Ralphe Armstrong on bass; and Stu Goldberg on piano, moog, and keyboards. Titles include "Inner Worlds (parts 1 & 2)", "All In The Family", "Miles Out", "The Way Of The Pilgrim", "In My ... LP, Vinyl record album
The great Earl Hines, heard here in a really fresh setting for the 60s – a "new" trio that features Ahmed Abdul Malik on bass and Oliver Jackson on drums – both players whose modern energy really adds a lot to Hines' legendary work on piano! The meeting of generations is ... LP, Vinyl record album
A classic set from this young lions duo – with Terence Blanchard on trumpet, and Donald Harrison on alto, tenor, and soprano sax – backed by a kick-ass rhythm trio that features Cyrus Chestnut on piano, Reginald Veal on bass, and Carl Allen on drums. LP, Vinyl record album
Very nice work from one of Ellington's revival periods – when he was signed to Columbia in the late 50s, and recording some of the best work of his career. This set moves past the modernism of some of Duke's other sessions at the time, and offers a more straight-ahead set in true "jazz ... LP, Vinyl record album
Don't be too put off by the title – which might make you think that the album's a bunch of flowery instrumentals – because it's actually a pretty strong set of tunes from trumpeter Joe Wilder, recorded with a bit of polish, to be sure, but in a way that lets him take the lead, solo-wise. ... LP, Vinyl record album
A lost Duke Ellington gem from the late 50s – a session that has a decidedly different look than some of his other records of the time! We don't know if the Duke was into Sun Ra – but it almost seems like he was copping his thunder with this title and band name – a fair bit more ... LP, Vinyl record album
A self-titled early 80s set from Weather Report – not to be confused with the group's debut over a decade before – and one that still has key core members Wayne Shorter, Joe Zawinul, and Jaco Pastorius in place! Shorter's reeds seem even more angular than before – really chopping ... LP, Vinyl record album
A lost bossa jazz classic from Dizzy Gillespie – recorded at a time when Lalo Schifrin was working in his combo! The record's got a cool, laidback kind of groove – one that's miles away from Gillespie's earlier bop work, and which shows him opening up his rhythmic conception strongly ... LP, Vinyl record album
A Texas tenor takes on one of Chicago's mightiest reedmen! Worth it for the presence of Freeman alone (only a handful of recordings exist of the man), this live date from '78 features Gator and Von fronting a heavy, heavy band with Carl Wilson, Yusef Ali, and Joe(as in "Boogaloo") Jones. ... LP, Vinyl record album
Italian reissue of Jeremy Steig's funky Capitol LP Energy from the early 70's. The record takes up where Jeremy's LPs on Solid State left off – adding Steig's hard-blowing flute to some groundbreaking beat-heavy backings by Gene Perla and Eddie Gomez on bass, Don Alias on drums, and Jan ...
