LP (Item 60495) Dragon (Sweden), 1955/1956 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.80 5

The famous Swedish baritonist, caught at the height of his youthful powers – playing in a number of different formats, all of them sounding great! Gullin's baritone was very different than that of many players – extremely fluid, and with a soulful feel that wasn't always common amongst the icier Swedish players of the time. Here, he's playing with a quintet of Swedes from 1955 – on tracks that include "Igloo", "Danny's Dream", and "Lars Meets Jeff"; a Swedish octet with Arne Domnerus, recorded in 1956, on tracks that include "Fedja", "Ma", and "Perntz"; and (last but not least!) the Chet Baker Quartet of 1955, with pianist Richard Twardzik, recorded right before his early death. Titles with Chet include "Brash", "Cool Blues", and "I'll Remember April".  © 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.

This is volume 3 of Prestige's set of European recordings by Dolphy, some of the last he would make before he passed away at a very young age.

An incredible batch of electric funk from Grover Washington Jr – easily one of his best albums ever!
