Mid 50s, and Louis is going back to his roots – playing a set of compositions by WC Handy – working with a small combo that includes Barrett Deems on drums, Arvell Shaw on bass, Trummy Young on trombone, and Barney Bigard on clarinet. Vocals are by Louis and Velma Middleton – and titles include "Atlanta Blues", "Chantez Les Bas", "Loveless Love", "Memphis Blues", "St Louis Blues", and "Beale Street Blues". (Red & gold label pressing with deep groove. Cover has a split top seam, light aging, and some pen on back.)  © 1996-2017, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

Columbia, 1980. Near Mint-
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.

Sweet keyboard grooves from Herbie Hancock – and a set that has him taking up some of the territory of younger players he'd inspired – like Bobby Lyle, Webster Lewis, or Rodney Franklin!

Water Babies
Columbia, 1967. Near Mint-
A much different album than you might expect from the cover – hardly the funky 70s set implied by the Big Fun-styled cover – and instead a lost slice of work from his groundbreaking late 60s years!
