Spring Fever

LP (Item 52348) Riverside, 1961 — Condition: Used
Temporarily Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album

❔

These guys are the Mangione Brothers – but don't hold that against them! This album's a great one – with a young Gap and Chuck, joined by Sal Nistico on tenor – all of them playing in an edgey, almost modern mode that's very different than any of their later work. The set opens with a great modal groover called "First Waltz" that's worth the price of the album alone – and other tracks include "Brooks' Brothers", "Not Too Serious", and "Spring Fever". Really great stuff – the kind of record you put on, then run back to the turntable a few minutes later, saying "What is THIS?" (Blue label Bill Grauer Productions pressing, with a microphone logo & a deep groove. Cover has light wear, but is nice overall.)  © 1996-2018, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.
