Smoooth Man

LP (Item 612623) Stepheny, Late 50s — Condition: Very Good
Very cool work from percussionist Bobby Christian – a set that's a bit of jazz, and a bit of bachelor pad – the latter of which you might have guessed from the cover!  © 1996-2024, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Vinyl is oxidized and plays with noise on Side 1 – while side 2 looks NM- Cover has split top & bottom seams.)

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.

Ah for the days when Holland seemed to be filled with hard-jamming fusion combos! Ekseption were one of the country's best – and crossed over big to the rock crowd during the prog years.
