Reason Why I'm Talkin S**t

LP (Item 59814) Atlantic, 1976 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.50 5

A very interesting album from Eddie Harris – one that's more of a comedy album than a jazz record – honest! Most of the record features Eddie performing his own comedy material – pretty blue stuff with lots of bad-rapping and profanity – possibly trying to cash in on the Rudy Ray Moore tip. A few cuts feature some backing by a combo that includes Paul Humphrey on drums and Odell Brown on organ – helping Eddie to set the scene and change the mood. Titles include "People Getting Ready To Go See Eddie Harris", "Are There Any Questions", "The Next Band", "Brother Soul", "Eddie Atlantic", and "Singing & Straining".  © 1996-2015, Dusty Groove, Inc.

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.

Used Vinyl Grades

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, please note that all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:

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.

Genius Of Eddie Harris
Tradition/Everest, Early 60s/Late 60s. Very Good-
Genius is right! This nice set of recordings from Eddie's Vee Jay years shows the soul jazz tenorist playing some of his more far-reaching work – like the incredible "Olifant Gesang", an 8 minute free form track that sounds more like Sun Ra-tinged exoticism than it does the kind of ...

Is It In
Atlantic, 1974. Very Good
One of Eddie's groovier Varitone albums, and a record that has a very electric sound to it! At times, Eddie's electric sax is so off-beat that you'd think he was playing a synthesizer instead of a sax, but in true Harris form, he always keeps it funky, and even the weird sounds have a great groove ...

Atlantic, 1957. Very Good-
The Modern Jazz Quartet with a very noteworthy addition – the great Sonny Rollins, whose work on this record really makes it a cut above the usual MJQ outing for Atlantic!

Four Brothers Sound
Atlantic, Late 50s. Very Good
An amazing record by Jimmy Giuffre – one that he uses to replicate the "4 Brothers Sound" of the years when he played with Woody Herman as one of a group of four saxophonists blowing together – but done here by Jimmy himself on all 4 horns, using early overdubbing techniques ...
