Bursts Of Joy

LP (Item 541577) Chiaroscuro, Mid 70s — Condition: Near Mint-

Solo piano recordings by Bergman, including the side long title track, "River Shadows", "Oranges" and "Horizons".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has a cut corner.)

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.

Six By Six
Chiaroscuro, 1977. Very Good+
An excellent and obscure session in a 70s free-ish mode, not too different from something you might hear on Strata East froom around the same time.

Black Lightning
Chiaroscuro, 1976. Very Good+
An album that was issued in the US, but which actually features excellent work that Abdullah Ibrahim/Dollar Brand recorded for the Gallo label in South Africa – the kind of edgier work that we often prefer next to some of his solo and trio material! The key force here is the horns – as ... LP, Vinyl record album

Buddy Tate/Dollar Brand

Buddy Tate Meets Dollar Brand
Chiaroscuro, 1977. Very Good+
A wonderful record based around a brilliant concept! Buddy Tate is a hell of a tenor player – with a tone that's up there with Rollins, Coltrane, and other giants – but his frequent recording patterns usually have him in less adventurous swing-based sessions, ones that don't get him to ...

Herbie Hancock

Columbia, 1973. Very Good+
An incredible record – and virtually the blueprint for countless other keyboard records to come!

Really unique material from Sun Ra – a pair of recordings that were initially circulated much more strongly than some of his Saturn Records material, thanks to the power of the BYG/Actuel label in the early 70s – but tracks that actually come from a variety of different sessions that Ra ...
