Dave Brubeck's Greatest Hits

LP (Item 557459) Columbia, Late 50s/Early 60s — Condition: Near Mint-

11 of Brubeck's greatest, including "Time Out", "I'm In A Dancing Mood", "Bossa Nova USA", "Blue Rondo A La Turk", and more.  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(360 Sound stereo pressing. Cover has light wear and aging, with initials in marker and a small tear in the back paste-on.)

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.

Bossa Nova USA
Columbia, 1963. Very Good+
Way more than just a gimmicky bossa nova session – and a surprisingly great showcase for the inventive rhythms of the Brubeck group, and the sensitive alto work of Paul Desmond!

Gone With The Wind
Columbia, Late 50s. Very Good+
A surprisingly nice little album from Brubeck – one that's mostly comprised of old-fashioned type tunes, but which all take on a hip new light in the hands of his classic quartet!

Seven Steps To Heaven
Columbia, 1963. Near Mint-
A key point in the development of the Miles Davis sound of the 60s – his first album to feature work from Herbie Hancock, Ron Carter, and Tony Williams – augmented by some equally nice work on other tracks from Victor Feldman and Frank Butler! The sound here is beautifully spare – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Columbia, 1967. Near Mint-
A great little record from the days before George Benson had totally hit his smooth jazz sound of the 70s, and was being pushed by Columbia as a hard wailing soul jazz leader!
