Juicy Lucy

LP (Item 528494) Beehive, 1979 — Condition: Near Mint-
A great return to form for guitarist Sal Salvador – a player who didn't always get that much time in the spotlight in the 70s, until a big wave of fresh exposure from the Beehive label! Sal got his start in the Stan Kenton group, where he learned a great sense of color and phrasing – but his approach here is much more down to earth, as he plays in a relaxed combo with Billy Taylor on piano, Art Davis on bass, and Joe Morello on drums! Some tracks are nice and long – with superb solos from Sal and Billy – and titles include "Opus De Funk", "Northern Lights", "Juicy Lucy", and "Tune For Two".  © 1996-2024, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor surface noise when played.

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.

Burn Brigade
Beehive, 1980. Near Mint-
A triple-baritone sax lineup – with Ronnie Cuber and Cecil Payne joining in with Brignola – and rhythm by Walter Davis Jr on piano, Walter Booker on bass, and Jimmy Cobb on drums! LP, Vinyl record album
Blue Note/United Artists, Early 50s. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
A strange 2LP set – put together in 1971, with a cover and a gatefold format that makes it look like current electric Miles on Columbia, but a track list that features Miles early 50s recordings for Blue Note! The tracks were all recorded by Rudy Van Gelder – and the sessions feature ... LP, Vinyl record album

Coleman Hawkins/Lester Young

Coleman Hawkins/Lester Young
Zim, Mid 40s. Very Good+
Includes Lester Young recordings from 1946 with Nat Cole on piano, Oscar Moore on guitar, Johnny Miller on bass, and Buddy Rich on drums, plus his quartet with Kenny Kersey on piano, Billy Hadnott on baritone, and Rossiere Shadow Wilson on drums; and Coleman Hawkins recordings from 1945 and 1946, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Columbia, Late 50s/Early 60s. Very Good+
A great collection of Miles' classic work for Columbia – one that features a few really hard to find gems! To us, the highlight is 2 tracks – "Stella By Starlight" and "On Green Dolphin Street" – both of which are subtle modal gems lifted from Miles' rare Jazz ... LP, Vinyl record album

Duke Ellington

Blue Light
Columbia, Late 30s. Very Good+
Subtitled "jazz for that relaxed mood", this is actually a great compilation of early work by Ellington's group – recorded for Columbia during the years 1934 to 1939. Somehow, the tracks still end up sounding 30 years ahead of their time – far stronger than most any early 50s ... LP, Vinyl record album

Count Basie

Basie At Birdland
Roulette, 1961. Very Good+
A killer set from Count Basie – recorded during the height of his years at Roulette! The back cover of the record proclaims that "Basie Is Back Home" – clearly a bit by Birdland to lay claim to being the Count's home address, which is a bit of a challenge to his KC roots! ... LP, Vinyl record album
Liberty, 1963. Near Mint-
Dave blows on a set of tunes lifted from TV shows of the early 60s – including "See The USA", "Like Young", "Sing Along", "This Could Be The Start of Something", "Lively One", and "Melancholy Serenade". The backings have the Pell ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bobby Womack

Facts Of Life
United Artists, 1973. Very Good+
Bobby Womack at the height of his powers – perfectly balancing southern soul roots and 70s soul polish – with an amazing sound that was unlike anyone else at the time! The set was recorded at Muscle Shoals, but has a quality that goes way beyond any of the standard modes from the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Warner, 1976. Very Good+
A strong move into disco by First Choice – the group whose earlier Philly work had an undeniable impact on the genre! The sound here is smoother and more mature than the group's first few albums – a bit more in the fuller mode of the disco years, less pop overall – and done with ... LP, Vinyl record album

Eleventh Hour

Hollywood Hot
20th Century, 1976. Very Good+ Gatefold
Bass-heavy funk material by this obscure west coast group, and a record that features songwriting and production by Bob Crewe. The tracks have kind of a pop funk sort of sound, with lots of ensemble vocals, and tight compressed rhythm tracks behind the main instrumentation. Not that noteworthy ... LP, Vinyl record album

Steely Dan

Can't Buy A Thrill
ABC, 1972. Very Good+ Gatefold
The first album from Steely Dan, and a really nice chapter in their career – one that's maybe a bit less iconic than the late 70s records, but in a way that really keeps things interesting! There's definitely less jazz and polish than on the later albums – but already, the group are ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jimmy Martin & The Sunny Mountain Boys

Singing All Day & Dinner On The Ground
Decca, 1973. Near Mint-
Fantastic bluegrass from the legendary Jimmy Martin – an artist who kept things timeless, even into later years – working here with his amazing vocals, and impeccable instrumentation – very much at the best level of work that Bill Monroe cut for Decca as well! LP, Vinyl record album
