More Genius Of Jankowski

LP (Item 552867) Mercury, 1965 — Condition: Used

Get set for More Genius from Horst Jankowski – a wonderful blend of electric bass in the rhythms and tinkling piano over the top – a rich new sound that Horst crafted for the 60s easy scene! The use of the bass really helps keep things fresh – quite different than the usual easy groove for the time – nicely rhythmic at most moments, even when the Jankowski Singers come into the mix to help out! Titles include "Cast Your Fate To The Wind", "Play A Simple Melody", "Canadian Sunset", "A Walk In Bavaria", "Berlin Stroll", and "Alpine Highway". (UK pressing. Cover has a light stain at the bottom.)  © 1996-2018, Dusty Groove, Inc.

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.

Used Vinyl Grades

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, please note that all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:

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.

JBL, 1973. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
70s geekazoid hi-fi culture at it's finest! The folks at JBL put together this 2LP set as sort of a "bible" of a 70's understanding of hi-fi – and it's a weird mix of documentary discussion, speaker demonstration, and rock tracks by the likes of Alex Harvey and Hoyt Axton.
