Blow It Out

LP (Item 537577) Ode/Epic, 1977 — Condition: Near Mint-

Tom Scott blows it out strongly here – really hitting the right sort of smooth jazzy vibe to make the album one of his classics from the 70s! As on all Tom's work, the reed sound is still nice and sharp – that edge that appeared way back when Tom was doing great studio work in his early years, but was already one of the strongest voices of his new generation. And although there's a fair bit of electricity here, things are never too sanded down – and instead kept at kind of a Kudu Records sort of vibe – with bigger charts and some standout solos. Richard Tee plays some sweet Fender Rhodes on the record – and titles include "Gotcha", "Dream Lady", "Shadows", "Smoothin On Down", and "You've Got The Feeln".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Tan label pressing with repeating logo.)

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.

Shirley Scott

Mystical Lady
Cadet, Late 60s. Very Good
One of Shirley Scott's trippy albums for Cadet, when she was being recorded with groups that were larger than usual – which was, in our opinion, a good thing, since her organ solos were backed up by more than the usual bass and drums, and she was given a more creative setting to open up in. ...
