Your Mind Is On Vacation

LP (Item 573998) Atlantic, 1976 — Condition: Near Mint-

Ol' Mose manages to keep his cool, even in the 70s – laying down some great small combo work with Joe Farrell and Al Cohn each playing a bit of tenor! That Allison vocal approach is right on the money – and titles include "Your Molecular Structure", "If You Only Knew", "What Do You Do After You Ruin Your Life", "I Feel So Good", "Fires Of Spring", and "No Matter".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has some ring & edge wear and a small cutout notch.)

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.

Mose Allison

Western Man
Atlantic, 1971. Near Mint-
An amazing record by Mose Allison – with some good funky tracks!

Mose In Your Ear
Atlantic, 1972. Very Good+
It's the early 70s, and Mose is still going strong – grooving with a unique blend of New Orleans soul and Northern jazz influences, his own particular brand of music, timeless from the day it was born! The setting here is a live one, and Mose is playing with a trio that includes Clyde ... LP, Vinyl record album

Atlantic, Early 60s. Very Good
A nice one from Bobby Short – who's still pretty groovy at this point, and works with some compelling backings from Phil Moore! LP, Vinyl record album

Oscar Brown Jr

Brother Where Are You
Atlantic, 1973. Near Mint-
Sweet 70s funk from the great Oscar Brown – quite a change from his jazz-based work of the 60s, but a great new sitting for all of his wonderful wit and warmth! Brown's still a hell of a songwriter, and one with a very socially-conscious eye – sharper here than before, with lots of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Atlantic, 1962. Near Mint-
One of the grooviest Mel Torme albums ever – a smoking little live set that has the Velvet Fog hitting a whole new soulful sound for the 60s – with a leaner groove than ever before!

If I Were A Carpenter
Atlantic, 1966. Near Mint-
What a great album – and a real departure for Darin!

Carmen McRae

Portrait Of Carmen
Atlantic, 1967. Very Good
An excellent album from Carmen McRae – one of her hippest records ever, and a great set of vocal gems that often gets overlooked!

Double Exposure
Atlantic, 1960. Very Good+
One of Chris Connor's standout albums for Atlantic Records – and a session that actually makes us really appreciate the presence of Maynard Ferguson!
