Double Barrelled Soul

LP (Item 6631) Atlantic, 1968 — Condition: Very Good+

One of the more open-ended sessions that Brother Jack cut for Atlantic – with less of the tight larger soul arrangements that the label usually saddled him with. (Not that we mind those, though!) David Newman plays a variety of saxes, and the group also includes a young Melvin Sparks on guitar. Tracks are longish, and the album includes the originals "Duffin 'Round", "Esperanto", and "More Head" – as well as stunning versions of "Sunny" and "But It's Alright"!  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Green and blue label pressing – nice and clean!)

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.

David Newman

Weapon
Atlantic, 1973. Near Mint-
One of the sweetest, funkiest 70s sets from reedman David Fathead Newman – an album that has the saxophonist blowing over some great arrangements from William Eaton – who brings in a full sound that almost gives the album a soundtrack sort of vibe! Newman's tenor, alto, and flute get ... LP, Vinyl record album

Herbie Mann

Hold On, I'm Comin'
Atlantic, 1973. Near Mint- Gatefold
Great early 70s work from Herbie Mann! By this point in his career, Herbie must have had a fleet of cars, a harem of ladies, and a golden flute. You can hear his success in the live material that makes up the album – recorded before very enthusiastic audiences at the New York and Montreux ... LP, Vinyl record album

Milt Jackson & Ray Charles

Soul Brothers
Atlantic, 1957. Very Good-
Not a vocal session from Ray Charles, but instead a set that showcases his great abilities in jazz – a side of Charles' talents that Atlantic was focusing on a bit more at the end of the 50s! The record's a collaboration with vibist Milt Jackson, who's nicely more loose and gritty here than ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bob James

Two
CTI, 1975. Very Good Gatefold
A monster – and quite possibly one of the greatest Fender Rhodes albums of all time! Bob James is really at the height of his powers here – stepping out with a sound that's a lot smoother than some of his earlier work, yet in a groove that's never too slick or too overproduced – ...

Donald Byrd

Up With Donald Byrd
Verve, 1964. Very Good
A great album, and unlike anything else Donald Byrd ever recorded – almost mad hodgepodge of the styles Byrd used at Blue Note, as the session brings together funky soul jazz with vocal backings – linking the groove of At The Races with the choral stylings of A New Perspective! The ... LP, Vinyl record album

John Coltrane

Infinity
Impulse, 1965/1972. Very Good Gatefold
The John Coltrane sound stretching out to Infinity – beautifully collaborating core spiritual sounds recorded when The Great One was still alive, and later string passages done by Alice Coltrane in the early 70s! The initial tracks are very open and almost easygoing – not the full-on ... LP, Vinyl record album
