Hip Twist

LP (Item 62104) Prestige, 1961 — Condition: Very Good

Hip Twist indeed – as Shirley's joined here by husband Stanley Turrentine, whose tenor work on any Scott album always takes it to the next level! Stan's tone is still nice and raw here – blowing out some hard and soulful lines that are the perfect complement to Shirley's more composed work on the Hammond. The rest of the group includes George Tucker on bass and Otis Finch on drums – and tracks include "Hip Twist", "Violent Blues", "That's All", "All Tore Down", and "Rippin & Runnin".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Yellow & black label NJ pressing, with deep groove, RVG stamp, and AB etch. Cover has light wear with a promo ink stamp on the back. Label has an ink stamp)

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.

Stardust
Prestige, 1958. Very Good+
A mellow soulful classic by John Coltrane – and one of his best-remembered early albums for Prestige!

Kharma
Prestige, 1975. Near Mint-
