Johnny Dodds – Sixteen Rare Recordings By One Of The Men Who Shaped The History Of New Orleans Clarinet

LP (Item 653980) RCA, Late 20s — Condition: Very Good+

(Orange label pressing. Cover has a cutout notch.)

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.

Far East Suite
RCA, 1967. Near Mint-
One of Ellington's greatest albums of the 60s – and a record tinged with Eastern themes and darkly angular modern arrangements.

Cedar Walton

Beyond Mobius
RCA, 1976. Very Good+
A great electric set from Cedar Walton – and a set that moves beyond his previous Mobius album, in case you couldn't guess from the title! The style here is a bit more tightly arranged – with some backup vocals on a few cuts, which underscore the core jazzy elements from Walton on a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Phil Woods

Floresta Canto
RCA, 1976. Near Mint-
One of those great records from the 70s that makes you say "man, Phil Woods was hip!" The session was cut in London with an electrified big band led by Chris Gunning, and featuring keyboards by the groovy Gordon Beck – kind of a blend of strings, keys, and woodwinds – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Kogun
RCA, 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!

Windows Opened
Atlantic, 1968. Very Good
Herbie Mann's opening plenty of windows with this one – and plenty of doors too – really letting some new influences come to his music, thanks to the presence of Sonny Sharrock on guitar and Roy Ayers on vibes! The album's one of Herbie's wildest from the 60s – and the mix of ... LP, Vinyl record album
