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". (Cover has some wear, with clear tape down the spine.)  © 1996-2018, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

Chess, Late 50s. Near Mint-
Raw, ragged, rough, and ready – killer early work by Bo Diddley, clearly in a class by itself! The Bo Diddley groove isn't blues, isn't soul, and isn't R&B – it's instead a mad blend of rhythm, scratchy guitar, and spontaneously playful vocals that few other singers could ever hope ...
