Mind Transplant

LP (Item 5291) Blue Note, 1975 — Condition: Very Good+
Also available
Alphonse Mouzon — Mind Transplant ... CD 11.99

Drummer Alphonse Mouzon cut some of the hardest, heaviest fusion albums ever to hit the Blue Note label in the 70s – including this legendary powerhouse of a record! The set features Mouzon with one of his longtime partners – guitarist Tommy Bolin – hitting a hard-rocking, heavy fusion sound that really blows off the roof – more than enough influence from the younger generation to showcase the new energy hitting electric jazz – and a bit like some of the work that Alphonse would do with other artists in later years! Mouzon's drums explode like a case of dynamite hitting a nitroglycerine factory – and Bolin wails away on guitar like a buzzsaw out of control. There's some nice little licks on the set – making the record a good one for the sample crowd – and a really high octane album with loads of nice changes! Titles include "Nitroglycerin", "Mind Transplant", "Snow Bound", "Ascorbic Acid", and "Carbon Dioxide".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight 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.

Blue Note/Solid State (Japan), 1970. Very Good+
A mindblower from flute man Jeremy Steig – his only album ever for Blue Note – and quite possibly his best! There's a stripped-down feel here that beats even the rich soul of Steig's sets for Solid State – a brilliant pairing of Jeremy's choppy lines on flute with the soulful ... LP, Vinyl record album

Blue Note, Early 50s. Very Good+
Volume 2 of a pair of LPs that brought together Miles Davis' early recordings for Blue Note – some excellent sessions recorded in 1952, 1953, and 1954, featuring Miles' young trumpet blowing in a wonderful mix of cool, bop, lyrical, and modern jazz.

Don Pullen/George Adams Quartet

Breakthrough
Blue Note, 1986. Sealed
Great work from the Don Pullen-George Adams Quartet – a great post-Mingus group that features Adams on tenor and Pullen on piano – along with Dannie Richmond on drums and Cameron Brown on bass!

Tony Williams

Foreign Intrigue
Blue Note, 1985. Near Mint-
An intriguing little set from drummer Tony Williams – and a set that shows him still very much in command of his talents well into the 80s! Tony's playing here with all the bold, open energy of his classic recordings – and although he picks up a bit of electric percussion at points, he ... LP, Vinyl record album

George Lewis & His New Orleans Stompers

Concert!
Blue Note, 1954. Near Mint-

Jack McDuff

Mellow Gravy
Prestige, Mid 60s. Very Good+
Mellow Gravy is right – an early killer from Jack McDuff, from that time when he was really tightening up his sound on the Hammond, and working with a top-shelf group that really pushed things over the top! All tracks are nice and long with great solos – and in addition to Jack on the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Don Patterson

Soul Happening!
Prestige, 1967. Very Good
A great one from Hammond giant Don Patterson – served up in that lean trio style that made his 60s work so great! The group features very fluid drums from Billy James, guitar from Vincent Corrao, and plenty of deft work on the keys from Don himself – on titles that include "Uptight ... LP, Vinyl record album

Arthur Adams

Home Brew
Fantasy, 1975. Very Good
An overlooked album of funky guitar! Arthur Adams was one of the many excellent west coast session players of the early 70s – and if you check the notes on some of your favorite California soul albums, you'll find that you've probably heard his guitar an awful lot over the years! As with ... LP, Vinyl record album
