Lester Young Story Vol 4 – Lester Leaps In

LP (Item 533086) Columbia, 1939 — Condition: Very Good+
2LP Gatefold

Great material from that pivotal year of 1939 – a time when Lester Young's horn set a tone for a whole new generation!  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(White label stereo pressing with tracklist stickers.)

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.

Charlie Parker/Everest, Early 50s. Near Mint-
No real date or personnel on this one, and the album's a live set recorded, most likely, at some time in the 50s.

Columbia, Late 60s. Very Good
Heavy soul from the Roy Meriwether Trio – picking up at a place where the Ramsey Lewis trio first began, and taking things to a very soulful extension!

One of our 50s favorites by Miles Davis – and a record that offers the same twin-sax sound as his classic Kind Of Blue – with both John Coltrane and Cannonball Adderley working alongside Miles in the group!

Bill Evans Album
Columbia, 1971. Very Good+
A pretty sublime album from Bill Evans – one that has him playing both Fender Rhodes and Steinway, overdubbed together, for an effect that's laidback and completely wonderful! The Fender Rhodes was a natural choice for Evans – given his fluid lyrical style, and on this set (and on his ... LP, Vinyl record album
