Bird's Perch

LP (Item 540303) Parktec, Late 40s — Condition: Very Good-

(Pink label pressing in a blue cover, with clear tape on the seams.)

Very Good - (minus)

  • Vinyl may be dirty, and can lack a fair amount of luster.
  • Vinyl can have a number of marks, either in clusters or smaller amounts, but deeper.
  • This is the kind of record that you'd buy to play, but not because it looked that great. Still, the flaws should be mostly cosmetic, with nothing too deep that would ruin the overall record.
  • Examples include a record that has been kept for a while in a cover without the paper sleeve, or heavily played by a previous owner and has some marks across the surface. The record should play okay, though probably with surface noise.

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.

Posthumous issue of an early 50s live set by Charlier Parker – one of the many that were rushed to the public in the years after his early death.

One Night In Washington
Elektra, 1953. Very Good+

Alamac, 1950. Near Mint-
Given the coolness of the Swedish jazz scene in the postwar years, we can imagine that the arrival of Charlie Parker on the scene must have set things on fire quite a bit!

Quincy Jones

Smackwater Jack
A&M, 1971. Near Mint- Gatefold
A great bit of 70s electric work from Quincy – and probably his funkiest album ever! Quincy's really stepping out here from the straighter and spacier styles of earlier records – going for more of the dirty grooves he was cutting up for soundtrack albums, and hitting notes that were a ...

Keep Your Soul Together
CTI, Early 70s. Very Good Gatefold
Freddie Hubbard at the peak of his 70s powers – and one of his finest albums of the decade!
