RIP – Siegel Schwall

LP (Item 595056) Wooden Nickel, 1974 — Condition: Near Mint-

A fond farewell to the Siegel Schwall Band, as you might guess from the title – one last studio effort from the group, before Corky Siegel took off on his solo career, and Jim Schwall concentrated on farming! The set's a bit different than the rest of their initial albums for Wooden Nickel – in that it has the group paying a final tribute to their influences – running through songs by an array of interesting talents, from John Prine, to Jimmy Reed, Muddy Waters, Lieber & Stoller, and Johnny Bond – all done in the relaxed, yet well-crafted style that made these guys such stalwarts on the Chicago scene. Titles include "Pretty Good", "Take Out Some Insurance", "Wild About My Lovin", "I'm A Hog For You Baby", "Tell Me Mama", "It's Too Short", and "Long Distance Call".  © 1996-2021, 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.
