VSOP – 4 Track Radio Sampler

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

12-inch, Vinyl record

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.

Columbia, 1980. Very Good
Two jazz funk monsters from Charles Earland's later years at Columbia, one with an unstoppably club-oriented groove and the more mellow, spaced out flip, both with great R&B vocals and none of his inimitable jazzy touch on the keys lost, either! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Epic, Mid/Late 70s. Very Good
A hard-to-find single that features 2 of Heatwave's best tracks! "Ain't No Half Steppin" is from their first LP – and it's a great little funk number that was sampled to big big fame by Big Daddy Kane, and which has become a funky favorite ever since! "Mind Blowing ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Rawkus, 2001. Very Good (pic cover)
Off the second Lyricist Lounge LP, "Get Up" produced by Hi Tek, "Let's Grow" produced by Jay Dee of the Ummah. 12-inch, Vinyl record
Fantasy, 1979. Very Good
Killer funky cuts, back to back! "Glide" is an upbeat dancefloor tune that was one of the group's most popular numbers, backed here with another uptempo groover that's got lots of wah wah guitar moving really fast, and slick flanged-up vocals that groove in the band's best late mode. 12-inch, Vinyl record
Jive, 1990. Very Good
Another one of those great Jive Classics reissues, complete with the excellent "hootie" remix of "Bonita Applebum" which has the "Between The Sheets" sample. "El Segundo" has the vampire mix, plus the original vocal one. 12-inch, Vinyl record
Columbia, Early 60s. Very Good+
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. Very Good
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
Columbia, Early 60s. Near Mint-
A good collection of work from Miles' early days at Columbia working with Coltrane, up through the pre-Bitches Brew years with the classic Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, Ron Carter, and Tony Williams lineup. Titles include "Walkin (live)", "All Blues (live)", "Someday My ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dave Brubeck

Time Out
Columbia, 1959. Very Good
Easily the crowning moment of genius for the legendary Dave Brubeck Quartet – the moment when all things came together magically, and the group somehow elevated themselves to a whole new level in jazz! At the time of the set, Brubeck, Paul Desmond, and the rest had already been making plenty ... LP, Vinyl record album

New Watusi Jazz Unit

Conference
Dancing Man, Mid 70s. Very Good
We've got to admit, we know nothing about this band, although they appear to be some type of school or university jazz band. A few of the tracks are kind of weak, but there's some others that have a nice spiritual large band sort of feel, with more open-ended arrangements that allow for good solos. ...
