VSOP – 4 Track Radio Sampler

12-inch (Item 58334) Columbia, 1977 — Condition: Near Mint-
(pic cover)

4 track radio promo sampler from the VSOP double LP, which was recorded live at the Newport Jazz Festival, and featured Herbie leading groups that represented different points in his career. The 2 featured here are the VSOP lineup, which was a re-grouping of the classic Miles quintet, with Freddie Hubbard in Miles place, and their in fine form here, though these radio edited versions of "Eye of the Hurricane" & "Maiden Voyage" don't show quite how well this group could stretch out. Side 2 is the real treat, with Herbie's electric band from that period, featuring Headhunters Paul Jackson & Bennie Maupin, and some heavy wah wah funk from Wah Wah Watson, on "Hang Up Your Hang Ups" & "Spider".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

Blue Engine, 2018. Near Mint-
Wynton Marsalis takes on two vocal tunes here – one with Willie Nelson, and one with John Mayer! Our favorite is "Night Life" – a classic early composition by Willie Nelson, which gave Ray Price a landmark hit – and which has this jazzy vibe that really works ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

Sugarscoop, 1984. Very Good-
Original pressing of "Boogie Down Bronx", one of the first hip hop tracks about The Bronx, and the early electro classic that Newcleus copied the bassline, drums and vocoder sound from on "Jam On It". The production almost sounds as if this could be a mid 80s Arthur Baker cut. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Shadybrook, 1977. Very Good-
Classic 12" version of this one! "Oh Honey" is a killer, with a great spacey soul sound, and a monster sample on the intro. This version is 6 minutes long – a real treat! 12-inch, Vinyl record
Warner, 1984. Very Good- (pic cover)
One of the most romping tunes ever recorded by Prince – the kind of cut that was an instant dancefloor stormer back in the day, and still sounds mighty groovy all these many years later! The song is featured here in it's very extended version – and is backed by the fantastic non-LP cut ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Elektra, 1990. Very Good- (pic cover)
Sure, it sold a bunch of copies – and you heard it in every coffee shop, clothing store, and tired disco at the time – but we still love this one, and consider it to be one of the finest points in pop music during the early 90s!

Columbia, Late 50s. Very Good
Although not actually a proper album – this is still one of the greatest Miles Davis albums of all time! Side one features 10 tracks from Miles' amazing soundtrack to the film Ascenseur Pour L'Echafaud – with excellent work by French players Barney Wilen, Rene Urtreger, and Pierre ...

Not to be confused with the other Monk album of the name Misterioso, this one is a live set (which is maybe why they put "recorded on tour" in the title!) – done in quartet format with Charlie Rouse, and either Larry Gales or Butch Warren on bass, and either Ben Riley or Frank ...

Miles Davis

Kind Of Blue
Columbia, 1959. Near Mint-
What can we say? This is the ultimate Miles Davis album – the one that includes so many songs that we've heard way too much in Starbucks, in retail stores, or at a friend's house who claims to be a "jazz expert", but is really a yuppie dilettante. Yet somehow, over all the years, ... LP, Vinyl record album
