A massive amount of greatness – the first run of albums by John Coltrane as a leader, recorded for Prestige Records in 1957 and 1958, and packaged here with a huge booklet of notes as well! The 6CD collection features a massive 48 tracks in all – the long, open-ended grooves that Coltrane recorded for Prestige – really stepping into the spotlight as a leader on his own, and working with players who include Red Garland on piano, Donald Byrd and Freddie Hubbard on trumpets, Paul Chambers on bass, and Jimmy Cobb on drums. The set features exquisite packaging – very unique – plus a beautiful 64 page book that includes album artwork, new liner notes, and a full discography and sessionography too! (Out of print. Mark through barcode.)  © 1996-2017, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.


Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible. All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.

With our Used CDs, you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks — clean, and not dirty at all. You can also expect the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves — putting fresh cases on Used CDs we handle) — and you can expect the booklet to be in good shape, unless noted otherwise. We will list any specific details/defects underneath the item — so look for notes on cutout marks in the case, stamps on the barcode, or details like that.
