Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.

X, 1927/1931. Very Good
Vintage work with Coleman Hawkins on tenor and Rex Stewart on cornet! LP, Vinyl record album
Columbia, 1980. Very Good+
A great little live set – recorded during the height of the group's popularity, kind of a mix of the modal spiritualism of their Strata East years, with some of the smoother electric playing of Columbia Records' jazz stable at the time. Stanley Cowell is on keyboards and kalimba, Alex Acuna ... LP, Vinyl record album
Columbia, 1979. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
A live set by Bob – packaged in a cover that has a picture of him in a Taxi, certainly designed to cash in on his fame doing the theme for that TV show! The record's actually quite nice, and is a good blend of the mellow Bob from later years and the darker Bob from earlier ones – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Mahavishnu Orchestra

Inner Mounting Flame
Columbia, 1971. Very Good+
A massive set of fusion from Mahavishnu Orchestra – a group that features some incredible guitar work from John McLaughlin, who sounds even more focused and driven here than on his own records! As with Return To Forever or Weather Report, the combo's a supergroup of sorts – with Billy ... LP, Vinyl record album

Billy Cobham

Alivemutherforya
Columbia, 1978. Very Good+
Billy Cobham live – very alive, in fact – and jamming like the "muther" promised in the title! The set's filled with heavy drums from Cobham, set in a group that also features fusion heavyweights Alphonso Johnson on bass, Steve Khan on guitar, Tom Scott on tenor and soprano ... LP, Vinyl record album

Billy Cobham

Magic
Columbia, 1977. Near Mint- Gatefold
A real jammer of a record from Billy Cobham – almost a summation of all the work he'd done in earlier years, smoothed out with a sweet funky late 70s fusion groove! The sound on the set is really tight – still plenty hard on the instrumentation, but also with a focus that we really ... LP, Vinyl record album
Columbia, 1978. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
One of Herbie Hancock's great acoustic moments of the 70s – quite a contrast to his more dynamic electric work of the time, with the subtle, sensitive approach of some of his Japanese trio sessions! Likewise, Chick Corea reminds us that he's great on the acoustic keys too – and works ... LP, Vinyl record album

Miles Davis

Bitches Brew
Columbia, 1969. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
One of the few cases in jazz where an oft-played classic still resonates with power! The record itself is a key cap to Miles Davis' already-groundbreaking years of the 60s – a bold step forward, not just for his nascent electric sound, but also for jazz in general – and the benchmark ... LP, Vinyl record album
Columbia, 1970. Very Good 2LP Gatefold
Four sides of long improvised grooves from Miles Davis – a set that's quite similar to the classic studio album Bitches Brew, but which captures the sound in more open live setting! Each track on each side is named "Wednesday Miles", "Thursday Miles", and so on – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Thelonious Monk

Monk's Dream
Columbia, 1963. Very Good+
The first Thelonious Monk album for Columbia Records – and one of the best, as well – a beautiful illustration of the way that his shift in labels really set some new fire to his music in the early 60s! The group is Monk's sharp-edged quartet with the amazing Charlie Rouse on tenor, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ramsey Lewis

Salongo
Columbia, 1976. Very Good+
A tremendous little record, and one of the funky 70s sets that Ramsey Lewis recorded with Earth Wind & Fire! Well, not Earth Wind & Fire entirely – but the Kalimba Productions team of Maurice White and Charles Stepney that gave the group its sound – plus a nice sprinkling of ... LP, Vinyl record album
