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.

Little Walter

Boss Blues Harmonica
Chess, 1960s. Near Mint- 2LP
A pretty nice little 2LP set – put together in the early 70s, and featuring material that Walter recorded for Chess during the 60s. As the title would imply, there's a lot of harmonica on the album – but Walter's vocals should also be given their due, as they're a bit more in the soul ... LP, Vinyl record album

Spotlighting The Man
Duke, 1967. Very Good-
Fantastic stuff, like all of Bobby's early Duke albums, and a breathtaking mix of soul and R&B, with some nice jazzy touches in the arrangements. Tracks include "Wouldn't You Rather Have Me", "Ask Me Nothin' About The Blues", "Gotta Get To Know You", and "You ... LP, Vinyl record album

Parrall, Late 70s. 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 ... LP, Vinyl record album
ABC, 1975. Very Good
Brilliant later work by Bobby Blue Bland – done with backings that are much fuller than on his earlier albums – a mixture of strings and horns that really expand the sound! That doesn't keep things from being soulful, though – as Bobby's in incredible form vocally, really rising ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bobby Blue Bland

His California Album
ABC, 1973. Very Good+
A nice little record from Bobby Blue Bland – quite different from his 60s sides for Duke/Peacock, and recorded in California (as you might guess from the title!) with a smoother more soulful approach that comes off surprisingly well! The style works well for Bobby – and kind of gave ... LP, Vinyl record album

Howlin Wolf

Howlin Wolf Album
Cadet, 1968. Very Good
A killer album of funky blues – recorded by Howlin Wolf during the period when Chess/Cadet was backing its older artists up with some of the newer funk musicians it had working in its studios! The overall sound works quite well – and although purists at the time moaned at the way ... LP, Vinyl record album
