Red Plays The Blues

LP (Item 641910) RCA, 1958 — Condition: Very Good+

Norvo plays in two settings – a smaller band with Jimmy Rowles on piano, Bob Carter on bass, Bill Douglass on drums, Ben Webster on tenor, and Harry Edison on trumpet; and a larger band that includes Don Fagerquist, Ed Leddy, Ray Linn, and Don Paladino on trumpets, Ray Sims on trombone, Willie Smith, Harold Land, and Chuck Gentry on reeds, Jimmy Rowles on piano, Mel Lewis on drums, James Wyble on guitar, and Lawrence Wooten on bass.  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Mono pressing with deep groove. Includes the RCA inner sleeve. Cover has some ring and edge wear.)

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.
