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.

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.

Siegel Schwall Band

Siegel-Schwall '70
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! The style is still rooted in blues, but ... LP, Vinyl record album

Steely Dan

Gaucho
MCA, 1980. Very Good-
The last album in the classic run of Steely Dan – the final taste we'd have of the group until their surprising revival in the 90s! Gaucho picks up beautifully where Aja left off – warmly produced with a deep undercurrent of jazz, but perhaps a bit more down to earth feel at times too ... LP, Vinyl record album

Zombies

Zombies
Parrot, 1965. Very Good-
The first US album by The Zombies – a brilliant little record that shows the group as way more than just a Brit Invasion combo! The songs are short, rocking, and nearly all very catchy – but they've got an airy quality that elevates them past simple pop, into the god-like territory ... LP, Vinyl record album

Roxy Music

Country Life
EG, 1974. Very Good-
The fourth album from Roxy Music – and quite possibly the best to date! The album has the group moving strongly past the Eno years, into a tighter framework that still contains many of the darker themes of earlier records. Ferry's lead vocals are incredibly majestic – rising to ... LP, Vinyl record album

Rolling Stones

Some Girls
Rolling Stones, 1978. Very Good-
Way more than the disco cash-in some folks thought at the time – and a surprisingly classic set that perfectly sums up the late 70s Stones ethos – and, in a way, the vibe of a changing New York! Titles include "Miss You", "Beast Of Burden", "Shattered", ... LP, Vinyl record album
Capitol, Mid 60s. Very Good-
A great American-only album from the Rubber Soul generation – the last one made specifically for the US market because of the different release patterns in the US and UK – with a number of their greatest songs of the period! Features a bunch of classics, and it ultimately holds together ... LP, Vinyl record album

Beatles

Rubber Soul
Capitol, 1965. Very Good-
A landmark leaping-off point for The Beatles – and a record that really paved the way for countless new ideas to come! The mix of catchy pop and freer ideas here is really wonderful – tunes that introduce a whole new mature world in mainstream music – yet manage to have all the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Capitol/Apple, 1967. Very Good- Gatefold
Hard to deny the lasting power of this crucial album from The Beatles – a set that unleashed some of their trippiest sounds and most tender moments too! The mix of wit and honesty is wonderful – and the sonic range is dynamic as the archetypal cover image – a package that's had ... LP, Vinyl record album
