Takes Me To Far Away Places (10 inch LP)

LP (Item 611256) Essex, Early 50s — Condition: Very Good-


Very Good - (minus)

  • Vinyl may be dirty, and can lack a fair amount of luster.
  • Vinyl can have a number of marks, either in clusters or smaller amounts, but deeper.
  • This is the kind of record that you'd buy to play, but not because it looked that great. Still, the flaws should be mostly cosmetic, with nothing too deep that would ruin the overall record.
  • Examples include a record that has been kept for a while in a cover without the paper sleeve, or heavily played by a previous owner and has some marks across the surface. The record should play okay, though probably with surface noise.

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.

Marty Gold

Wired For Sound
Vik, 1956. Very Good+
"Current Supplied By Marty Gold" – or so reads the cover – as this is one of Gold's most dynamic albums of the 50s! The production is really great, with lots of use of effects and echo – to transform ordinary instrumental tunes into mod hi-fi affairs! The feel here is ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jack Marshall

18th Century Jazz
Capitol, Late 50s. Very Good
Goofy "18th Century" jazziness, played by a tight west coast studio sextet that features Shelly Mann, Milt Raskin, Harry Klee, and Jack Marshall on guitar. The tracks are jazz standards, but they're given a sort of plucked sound, and layed out with some sort of stepping classical grooves. ... LP, Vinyl record album
RCA (Mexico), Mid 50s. Good+
Holy cow! A rare early Esquivel album, recorded in Mexico in the years before he came to the US! The record shows Esquivel's roots in the post-swing era, leading a big band that runs through everything from moody standards to souped up "rock & roll" material. The setting appears to ...

Big Sam Marowitz

Sounds In The Night
Roulette, Early 60s. Very Good-
An excellent album of late night sax and organ numbers – featuring the enigmatic alto player Big Sam Marowitz, paired with arrangements that make some nice use of the thinner end of the Hammond organ spectrum! The instrumentation also has a nice dose of electric guitar and bongos – all ... LP, Vinyl record album

One of the first few albums that Arthur Lyman recorded after his split with Martin Denny – and still very much in the best Denny mode – mixing vibes with percussion, and adding in lots of cool effects! There's a fair bit of exotic sounds in the mix – including birdcalls from ... LP, Vinyl record album
