Live At The Blues Festival

LP (Item 5633) Parrall, Late 70s — Condition: Very Good+

Albert's playing live here – in case you can't guess from the title – at an unspecified "blues festival", in an odd little album that's issued without any real notes or details on the set – the only record we've seen on the Chicago-based Parrall label. Tracks are longish, and the set includes a funky version of "Watermelon Man", plus the tracks "I'll Play The Blues", "You Don't Love Me", "Laundry Mat" and "I Wonder Why".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has a name in pen on front.)

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight 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.

John Lee Hooker

Endless Boogie
ABC, 1970. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
A hip mix of raunchy blues and rootsy rock – all stretched out over a double-length set that's easily one of John Lee Hooker's loosest albums ever! The album has Hooker playing in a number of settings with hip rock and funk players from the California scene – including Steve Miller, ... LP, Vinyl record album
ABC, 1971. Near Mint- Gatefold
BB King in London – not playing live, but working in the studio with a host of British musicians he'd inspired over the years! The lineup varies from track to track, giving a nice sort of variety to the album – and the overall feel is a bit like some of the Chess London sessions of the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Loads of early work from Muddy Waters – including recordings with Jimmy Rogers, Little Walter, and Big Crawford! LP, Vinyl record album
Columbia, 1975. Very Good+
A bit hipper and less bluesy than some of Taj's other work for Columbia – recorded with his Intergalactic Soul Messengers Band, and a sound that's slyly soulful – and flavored with reggae or otherwise Caribbean influenced rhythms! Music Keeps Me Together has a fairly loose feel, but ... LP, Vinyl record album

Luther Allison

Luther's Blues
Gordy, 1974. Near Mint-
One of the only blues records you'll ever find on Motown – and a mostly straight blues affair with a hard electric sound to it. The album's mostly in the early Alligator Records camp – but there's a few nice funky cuts, like "Now You Got It" and "Into My Life", ... LP, Vinyl record album
Bluesway/ABC, 1973. Near Mint-
Earlier recordings by Jimmy Reed, most likely done at the end of the 60s – but issued here for the first time in this 1973 package by Bluesway. Jimmy's working here in a mode that's almost rootsier than his more famous work for Vee Jay – singing with a really rough edge, and playing ... LP, Vinyl record album

Marvin Gaye

Midnight Love
Columbia, 1982. Very Good+
Marvin Gaye's last album ever – and a sensuous batch of grooves that almost return him to the sound of Let's Get It On! The style here is a bit more modern, but the sound is still great – a smoother approach to soul than most of Gaye's contemporaries at the time, recorded in a way that ... LP, Vinyl record album

Roberta Flack

First Take
Atlantic, 1969. Very Good
What can we say? We've heard this one a million times, it sold over a million copies – but it's still incredible! The record is Roberta's first, and it features her in a mellow trio format, augmented by some occasional larger arrangements by William Fischer. At most points, though, the ...
