Euphoria

LP (Item 579333) Savoy, Late 40s — Condition: Near Mint-
2LP Gatefold
Tremendous tenor work from the late 40s – a huge collection of early Savoy singles done by Charlie Ventura, including some cuts with Jackie & Roy on vocals! A few other numbers features vocals by Buddy Stewart – but most are instrumentals, with lots of hard-wailing tenor from Ventura – and the set also features a few previously-unissued titles, and great notes too!  © 1996-2024, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has a cut corner, light wear, and a promo sticker.)

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.

Champ (Savoy)
Savoy, Early 50s. Very Good+
A nice little collection of some of Dizzy Gillespie's best bop material for Savoy – tunes that were originally recorded as 78rpm singles – then issued together on this classic album of all-star players! The tunes are short, catchy, and often very grooving – that mix of whimsy and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Savoy, 1958. Near Mint-
A really smoking little session – the brilliant follow-up to Savoy's well-known Jazz For Playboys album – and arguably a much better record to that one too!

2 LP reissue of some of the great early Stan Getz sessions for Savoy, with lots of great players like Serge Chaloff, Allen Eager, and Brew Moore.

In The Beginning – Bebop
Savoy, Late 40s. Near Mint-
A nice selection of late 40s work by a few groups, collected by Savoy as a kind of introduction to the bebop movement, a look back at the early days of bop. Kai Winding and his quintet, featuring Allen Eager on tenor and Shelley Manne on drums, lead off the set with four tracks including "Mr. ... LP, Vinyl record album
Savoy, Late 40s/Early 50s. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
