Classic Encounter

LP (Item 582152) CBS, 1988 — Condition: Near Mint-

...

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.

Ramsey Lewis

Three Piece Suite
Columbia, 1981. Near Mint-
Stellar grooves from the great Ramsey Lewis – a set that has the pianist teaming up with Chicago soul arranger Tom Tom 84, in a wonderful fusion of jazz solos and R&B rhythms!

Argo, 1958. Very Good
Ramsey and the trio are on the front in tuxedoes, top hats, and tails – but the overall sound of the record is much more in keeping with their soul jazz grooves of the late 50s – not necessarily gentlemanly, but with a worldly appreciation for a variety of styles of music, and perhaps a ...

Salongo

A tremendous little record, and one of the funky 70s sets that Ramsey Lewis recorded with Earth Wind & Fire!

Funky Serenity
Columbia, 1973. Near Mint-
Sweet electric funk from Ramsey Lewis!

Maiden Voyage
Cadet, 1968. Very Good-

Piano Player
Cadet, 1969. Very Good
One of Ramsey Lewis' best albums of the 60s – a killer Cadet record that stands right up there with classics like Maiden Voyage and Mother Nature's Son!

Sun Goddess
Columbia, 1974. Very Good+
One of our favorite Ramsey Lewis albums ever – and a perfect summation of the genius that was brewing on the Chicago scene in the late 60s and early 70s!
