Live Oblivion Vol 1

LP (Item 62177) RCA, 1974 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


5.00 5

Really hard-jamming work from keyboardist Brian Auger – the first of a 2-part live set from the US, and easily some of his greatest work on record! The tracks are all very long and stretched out here – an extrapolation of the territory Auger was already exploring on studio sides, taken into even more cosmic realms through the lively nature of the set. As with other records from the time, Alex Lighterwood sings on some cuts – but the real highlight is the keyboard work of Auger – served up on both organ and electric piano, and hitting a great blend of funk, fusion, and keyboard soul! Titles include a really great funky remake of "Bumpin On Sunset", the original break track "Don't Look Away", and the tunes "Truth", and "Beginning Again".  © 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.

Reinforcements
RCA, 1975. Very Good- Gatefold
A great later sleeper from Brian Auger – a record that's much deeper and more soulful than some of his earlier work – and done in a soaring style that's really great! Alex Lighterwood sings as much as Auger plays the keys here, but that's ok with us – because he fuses his voice ... LP, Vinyl record album

Renaissance

A massively sweet groover from Lonnie and the Cosmic Echoes – smoother and warmer than some of his earlier albums, with a really soulful fusion vibe! Lonnie plays acoustic piano and "electric colorations" – working with a group that includes brother Donald on flute and vocals ... LP, Vinyl record album

Juice
RCA, 1975. Very Good
One of the few American releases by this legendary Japanese fusion artist – and a pretty funky little record as well! Ryo Kawasaki plays lead guitar and the very cool "string synthesizer" on the set – making for a sweet mix of electric grooves that has some really great ... LP, Vinyl record album

Different Drummer
RCA, 1971. Very Good-
A 70s gem from Buddy Rich – a session that's cut with some really tightly arranged backings, but done in a way that actually has Buddy kicking the kit even more than usual! Some of the best tunes on the set have a really wicked sense of funk – one that uses a bit more space than in ... LP, Vinyl record album

Kogun (Japanese pressing)
RCA (Japan), 1974. Near Mint-
Brilliantly bold work from pianist Toshiko Akiyoshi – an artist who's really coming into her own for the 70s – stepping out in a big band format that would win her a wide new audience on both sides of the Pacific! The album's one of the first to feature the ensemble co-led with husband ... LP, Vinyl record album

Saxophone De Danse
RCA (Canada), Mid 60s. Very Good
Not as freewheeling as Nick's Montreal Scene album, but a record that has some nice solos over slinky rhythms – including a few that sound oddly exotic with Ayoub's phrasing! Some tracks have a jerk or soul instrumental vibe – but the set also features a sublime take on "Misirlou&q ... LP, Vinyl record album

Mobius
RCA, 1975. Near Mint-
Excellent funky album from the mid 70's, with good spacey arrangements around Cedar's hard piano. With a sound that's a bit like a CTI record, and a group that includes Ryo Kawasaki, Steve Gadd, and Frank Foster. Very different than most of Cedar Walton's records, and with a nice breakbeat on the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Beyond Mobius
RCA, 1976. Near Mint-
One of Cedar's funk records for RCA, and an LP on which he plays keyboards and synthesizers in a way that's very different from his warm lyrical style on the piano. The record's a bit more disco-oriented than his earlier one, but it's still got some nice funky moments, including a great cover of ... LP, Vinyl record album

New Vibe Man In Town
RCA, 1961. Very Good-
This was vibe player Burton's first record as a leader and he teams up with Joe Morello on drums and Gene Cherico on bass. The eight selections are a mixture of standards as well as some more popular music and as the liner notes indicate there were no formal arrangements for any of the songs. The ...

Two Of A Mind
RCA, 1962. Very Good
A reunion of sorts for Paul Desmond and Gerry Mulligan – given that the pair had played together on record 5 years before, in a similar session for Verve! This album's almost lighter and more airy than the previous one – as it's done in a mode that echoes strongly with Desmond's own ... LP, Vinyl record album

Latin Shadows
Impulse, 1965. Very Good- Gatefold
A great album from Shirley Scott – with some excellent arrangements by Gary McFarland! We've always felt that Shirley plays best when she's not leading the group – when someone else is handling the arrangements, so that she can groove mightily on her own – and this album is a ...
