Way Back

LP (Item 525998) Rounder, 1984 — Condition: Sealed

...

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.

Skip Mahoney & The Casuals

Land Of Love
Nashboro, 1976. Very Good+ Gatefold
Beautiful harmony soul! Skip and the Casuals were one of the great lost groups of the 70s – and they had a classic style that was very much in keeping with groups like Soul Generation or The Whatnauts. The band hailed from Washington DC, making them one of the southernmost outposts of the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Antilles/Ze, 1980. Near Mint-
After a few years knocking around in the New York club scene – doing successful work with Dr Buzzard's Original Savannah Band, Machine, and other groups – August Darnell burst forth as Kid Creole, a unique musical persona that was a conglomeration of many styles, from disco to new wave ...

Capitol, 1977. Very Good+
Jackie's a British singer – with a sound that's a bit Gilbert O'Sullivan, a bit Chris Rainbow. But on this album, he's produced in a way that has a lot of soul influences – not necessarily a totally authentic soul sound, but more in a Free Soul style that features a lot of compression ...

Capitol, 1979. Near Mint-
Massive work from Sun – a large ensemble funk group who somehow managed to groove with the grace of a small combo! The album's got a sweetly compressed sound that's really setting the stage for 80s groove – lots of sweet keyboard and bass licks dancing around each other in a style that' ... LP, Vinyl record album
Volt, 1960s. Very Good+ Gatefold
Not necessarily a complete "history" of the man – but a classic "best of" compilation that includes some of his greatest tracks ever! Titles include "Security", "Mr Pitiful", "I've Been Loving You Too Long", "Try A Little Tenderness" ... LP, Vinyl record album
Atco, 1971. Very Good+ Gatefold
The King Curtis combo in all of its glory – really grooving hard here in a set of instrumental performances recorded at the same time as Aretha Franklin's famous live date at the Fillmore West! King backed Aretha up on her own record from Fillmore, but this set features all the instrumental ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dave Baby Cortez

Tweetie Pie
Roulette, Mid 60s. Very Good+
Not as funky as the albums he'd later cut in the early 70s, but still a lot of short groovy little organ tracks with the Baby Cortez feel to them. Hugo & Luigi produce his renditions of pop songs and R&B numbers that were popular at the time, like "Shake", "Watermelon ... LP, Vinyl record album

Werner-Rosengren Swedish Jazz Quartet

Bombastica!
Jazzland, 1960. Very Good+
Excellent bit of modernist jazz from Sweden, recorded in Stockholm, and issued in the states by Jazzland. The brilliant young tenor player Bernt Rosengren teams with wild piano player Lars Werner to play an amazing set of originals by Werner like "Bombastica", "Latin Beat", ... LP, Vinyl record album
Creative World, 1973. Very Good+
Funky stuff from Stan – a very different album than usual! The style here is 70s big band funk – mixing the usual horn-heavy frontline with some electric bass and more of the groove that was showing up with the European big bands at the time – particularly those on the MPS label. ...

Gene Harris

Astral Signal
Blue Note, 1974. Very Good-
A masterpiece from Gene Harris – an album that's probably been his biggest influence on the sound of soul in the 21st Century, and for good reason too! The set moves way beyond both Harris' acoustic piano roots in the Three Sounds, and his other electric sides of the 70s – into sublime ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ornette Coleman

Tomorrow Is the Question!
Contemporary, 1959. Sealed
Tomorrow may be the question, but the record screams "today!" – and even this many years after its recording, this early set by Ornette Coleman has an energy and presence that cannot be denied! The sound here is kind of a rougher take on the mode that would gel more strongly on ... LP, Vinyl record album
