Biggest Thing Since Colossus

LP (Item 633457) Blue Horizon, 1969 — Condition: Very Good+
A really great moment in the spotlight for the legendary Chicago bluesman Otis Spann – an artist who often appeared on records by bigger talents of his generation, but didn't always get to shine this brightly on his own! The album's a very reverent session that has Spann's piano and vocals in the lead, with spare backing from the first incarnation of Fleetwood Mac – a setting that really lets Peter Green show off the bluesiest side of his guitar work, and maybe in a different way than some of the group's albums. And despite any blues-rock fears you might have, the album's a definite blues outing all the way through – and maybe one of the most vibrant that Spann ever recorded. Titles include "My Love Depends On You", "Someday Baby", "I Need Some Air", "She Needs Some Loving", and "No More Dogging".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Vinyl has just a few minor marks. Cover has light wear and a hype sticker.)

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight 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.
