Great Rhythm & Blues Oldies Vol 4

LP (Item 654504) Blues Spectrum, Mid 70s — Condition: Very Good+
(Cover has a cutout hole.)

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.

Chess, Late 50s/Early 60s. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
One in a series of double LP compilations Chess put out in the 70s collecting some of the classic blues sides in their catalog. As near as we can tell, these raw folk blues numbers were mostly issued as 45s, featuring Sonny Boy on vocals and harp, with sidemen that include Muddy Waters, Robert Jr ... LP, Vinyl record album
Chess, 1950s. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
A really great collection of Chess Records work by JB Lenoir – one of the more unusual singers on the Chicago scene at the time – and one with a sound that's pretty darn great all the way through! Lenoir's tone is a pitch or two up from most of his contemporaries – not as gritty ... LP, Vinyl record album
Crosscut (Germany), 1965. Near Mint-
Raw early instrumentals by Albert Collins – work that's coming from a blues camp, to be sure, but which also has a good deal of soul and funk touches as well! Albert's raspy guitar takes center stage on the record – but the arrangements are actually all pretty tight and soul-based too, ... LP, Vinyl record album

RCA, 1976. Near Mint-
A mad bit of music from the great Bo Diddley – recorded after his early 70s funk records on Chess – but with a similar genre-tripping style! The album's got this full-on fuzzy feel right from the start – put together by producer Ron Terry, who matches Diddley's wilder side with ... LP, Vinyl record album

Count Basie & Billy Eckstine

Basie/Eckstine Incorporated
Roulette, 1959. Very Good+
Billy Eckstine gets a new lease on life – working here with great backings from the Count Basie band, in a mode that's a bit like some of Billy's own large ensemble recordings of the mid 40s! The sound is a bit more Basie-inflected than before, but that also unlocks some great swinging, ... LP, Vinyl record album
RCA, 1957. Near Mint-
Trad swinging from Connee Boswell – working here outside of her famous group with her sisters, and getting some pretty nice small combo backing from the Original Memphis Five! The overall style hearkens back to a jazz mode a few decades before the late 50s date of the set – and the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Rickie Lee Jones

Rickie Lee Jones
Warner, 1979. Near Mint-
Sure, Rickie Lee Jones went onto become a bit of a cliche in later years, but this early album's still got an undeniable power – and was a great breath of fresh air, at a time when it seemed like most of modern music was forgetting its roots! What is it with the LA scene from the 60s onward ... LP, Vinyl record album
