Red Alert

LP (Item 543179) Galaxy, 1978 — Condition: Near Mint-

A later non-trio session with horns – featuring nice work from Harold Land and Ira Sullivan on tenor, and cornet from Nat Adderley! Titles include "Stella By Starlight", "It's Impossible", "Theme For A Tarzan Movie", and "Red Alert".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

Tremendous work from Johnny Griffin – one of those players whose talents never dimmed at all – and who's blowing here with all the same sharp intensity he first brought to his initial work in the 50s!

Groovy trio set, with a organ/guitar/drums lineup playing through a batch of soul hits like "Uptight" and "Wade in the Water", plus "Wee Dot", and a few pop hits. More groovy organ lines from Patterson, who's the main star here, and a surprisingly nice version of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Verve, Late 60s. Very Good+
Totally totally cool LP that has this groovy group playing with Oliver Nelson – who plays soprano on most tracks. The sound is very groovy, and very Now Sound, with a female vocal duet, and mod swingin' jazzy lyrics. The LP's got a nice version of "My Favorite Things", a cool ... LP, Vinyl record album

Archie Shepp

Attica Blues
Impulse, 1972. Very Good+ Gatefold
A classic of spiritual, soulful jazz – and one of Archie Shepp's greatest albums!

Blue Gator
Prestige, 1959. Very Good+
A massive early Prestige set from tenorist Willis Jackson – and just the kind of record that set him firmly in the soul jazz camp for the 60s!

Brilliant early work by Miles Davis – some of his first truly important sessions to appear under his own name, recorded with players that include Jimmy Heath, JJ Johnson, Gil Coggins, Art Blakey, Kenny Clarke, Jackie McLean, and Oscar Pettiford.

Don Patterson

Boss Men
Prestige, 1966. Very Good+
Nice cooker from Don, featuring a trio with Sonny Stitt on alto and Billy James on drums. The groove is that nice open-ended gutbucket style that Patterson was bringing to his Prestige sides of the time. There's rootsy soul jazz, but also a bit more freewheelingness than you'd expect – ... LP, Vinyl record album
