King Cobra

LP (Item 6598) Fantasy, 1976 — Condition: Near Mint-
Funky Woody from the 70s – an excellent and overlooked album, one that has Woody leading a great group with a fair bit of electric players, in a funky big band style that sparkles with the best of the genre! The group's filled with younger unknown players – but from the sound of the record, you can tell that these kids had been listening to a lot of funk – and had a great ear for mixing electric rhythms with cutting solos on tenor, trumpet, and funky flute. Includes a great version of Chick Corea's "Spain", plus the tracks "Lake Taco", "King Cobra", "Toothless Grin", "Jazzman", and "Don't You Worry Bout A Thing".  © 1996-2023, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has surface wear.)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor 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.

Woody Herman

Thundering Herd
Fantasy, 1974. Near Mint-
Great work from Woody – not as funky as some of his other 70s albums, but still a really excellent album with a much better sound than you'd expect! The group's filled with young hip players – most of whom we don't know, but who play with a lot of soul – and even Woody's pretty ... LP, Vinyl record album

Stanley Turrentine

Pieces Of Dreams
Fantasy, 1974. Very Good+ Gatefold
A 70s soulful classic from the mighty Stanley Turrentine! Stan's not the bad "Mister T" on this set – he's more in a smooth, mellow mode – blowing over some nice soulful arrangements by Gene Page, ones that take the CTI funk approach, add in some strings, and create a bit of ...

Bill Evans

Alone (Again)
Fantasy, 1977. Very Good
Bill Evans returns to the solo mode of his 60s album for Verve, but in a way that really shows how much he's grown – longer tracks that open up with a great sense of beauty! LP, Vinyl record album
Fantasy, 1975. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
A second volume of Duke Ellington material from Kenny Burrell – and like the first, an extremely fresh look at the tunes – given the way things change up throughout the sessions! The presentation here is nicely varied – not just a big band take on the Duke, nor some small combo ... LP, Vinyl record album

Cannonball Adderley

Fantasy, 1975. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
Sweet funky 70s work from Cannonball Adderley – a record that has him revisiting older tunes from his early soul jazz years – but in ways that give them a whole new electric vibe overall! The album's actually Cannonball's last full studio set, but it's also one of his greatest too ... LP, Vinyl record album

Cal Tjader

Fantasy, Late 60s. Very Good
An excellent album from legendary vibist Cal Tjader – and one of his truly electric albums! A key factor to the greatness of this one is keyboardist Al Zulaica – who plays some amazing Fender Rhodes on the album, really unlocking a whole new sound of Cal's vibes in the process! The ...

Fantasy, 1976. Very Good+
Honestly we've never been the hugest fans of Saunders, probably due to the fact that he was one of the more pandering Bay Area players of his generation, tipping up the hoke quotient for the rock crowd a little too much for our taste. But this is still a mid 70s Fantasy side, with a group ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bill Evans

I Will Say Goodbye
Fantasy, 1977. Near Mint-
A gem of a late life session from Bill Evans – part of that great run when Helen Keane was getting him in the studio in ways that really let Bill relax and open into some very personal modes on the piano! The group here is excellent – the mighty Eddie Gomez on bass and Eliot Zigmund on ... LP, Vinyl record album
