Under The Blanket

LP (Item 60834) A&M, 1970 — Condition: Near Mint-

A breezy set of instrumental tunes, with a perfect A&M finish – one of the coolest, grooviest albums ever recorded for the legendary label! The set was put together by the team of guitarist John Pisano and French horn player Willie Ruff – and it's got this wonderful sense of balance, timing, and compression in the sound – all produced to perfection by Herb Albert, with a sophisticated groove that goes way past any of the hoke of the more popular A&M instrumental music of the 60s! The groove is incredibly gentle – bossa-inspired, to be sure – but with that LA easy approach that only A&M could do so well – a sublime sound that's held us breathless for years. Titles include "The Drifter", "I'll Never Fall In Love Again", "Under The Blanket", "Amancer", "Slim", "Soon", "Stop", and "Chris".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Brown label pressing in the textured cover, with a bumped corner.)

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.

Tom Scott

Great Scott!
A&M, Early 70s. Near Mint-
A nice one by Tom Scott! He's veering here towards the more tightly produced sound of later years, but the overall feel is still quite nice – and the record has some good funky moments, and players like Howard Roberts, Emil Richards, and Mike Wofford really make the session cook with a ...

Tell It Like It Is
A&M/CTI, 1969. Very Good Gatefold
An early George Benson groover from the A&M years of CTI – a set that's quite different than his famous 70s sets, with a really unique sound overall!

Bobby Hutcherson

San Francisco
Blue Note, 1971. Very Good+
Genius, pure genius!

Miles Davis

On The Corner
Columbia, 1972. Very Good Gatefold
A sublime bit of Miles Davis electric funk – one of the best-remembered electric sets from the 70s, and for good reason too! The tracks are long, the jams are hard, and the whole thing has a lot more funk than some of the noise you'd get on other Miles albums of the time – thanks to ... LP, Vinyl record album

Miles Davis

Water Babies
Columbia, 1967. Very Good+
A much different album than you might expect from the cover – hardly the funky 70s set implied by the Big Fun-styled cover – and instead a lost slice of work from his groundbreaking late 60s years! The set was recorded in 1967, but unissued until Miles late 70s time away from the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Way nicer than some of Milt's earlier work – and one of the gems he recorded with bassist Ray Brown during the late 60s. The group's got a tight soul jazz stepping groove – with Monty Alexander on piano, comping along right over Ray's warm basslines in a very tasty way. Teddy Edwards ... LP, Vinyl record album
