Siegel Schwall Band (Wooden Nickel)

LP (Item 599102) Wooden Nickel, 1971 — Condition: Very Good
Gatefold

A classic set from this legendary Chicago group of the early 70s – a combo led by Jim Schwall and Corky Siegel – two blue-eyed Windy City musicians who were unabashedly in love with the blues music of their scene! Unlike some of the later crossover blues albums of the 70s, these guys are very much right in the pocket, and faithful to their tradition – working here with a combo that also includes Rollow Radford on bass and Shelly Plotkin on drums – lean, well-crafted, and with Siegel on some especially nice electric piano and harmonica. Titles include "Country Road", "Leavin", "Corrina", "I Won't Hold My Breath", "Devil", and an 11 minute take on the Jimmy Reed tune "Hush Hush".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has some surface wear and a cutout notch.)

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.

Vanguard, 1970. Very Good+
The Siegel Schwall Band change things up a bit here – leaving behind the rootsy Sam Charters production of their first few albums for the the heady sound of Dunwich – and picking up just a bit of electric piano and electric bass in the process!

In the past 30 years, this one's gone from being a fierce outpouring of the Bay Area underground, to a cliche of classic rock, to a brilliant example of west coast Latin rock/funk/fusion in action!

A bit later in the classic range for Human League – but still pretty darn great!
