(Mono pressing, still 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.

Jazz Under The Dome
Vik/RCA, 1957. Very Good+
A great little session of chamber-type jazz – and the only record we've ever seen by drummer Freddy Merkle.

Tennessee Firebird
RCA, 1966. Near Mint-
Quite an unusual session from Gary Burton – recorded in Nashville, with a mix of jazz and country session players – coming together in an open-ended sound that's got lots of complicated touches.

I'm Tired Of Driving
RCA, 1978. Near Mint-
Less of a jazz album than some of Eddie's other records – but that's ok with us!

Hal McKusick

Jazz Workshop
RCA, 1957. Very Good
Sublime work from Hal McKusick – one of those mid 50s modernists who offered up such hope for new ideas at the time, and who seemed to all but disappear by the middle of the next decade! This album's one of Hal's finest – an optimistically crafted batch of tunes written by many of the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Crackling live energy from Buddy Rich – recorded at Ronnie Scott's nightclub in London, and with a sound that recalls some of Buddy's best from the 60s!

Manteca!
Pacific Jazz, Early 60s. Very Good+
One of our favorite albums ever from the great Clare Fischer – and one of the first to really show his special talents at their best!

Gil Evans

Svengali
Atlantic, 1973. Very Good+
A great example of the way that Gil Evans really opened up his groove in the 70s – moving here way way past the cool jazz and third stream of earlier years – into a soulful style that's far groovier than might be expected! Part of the strength of the set is because of the players ... LP, Vinyl record album
