Somebody Call My Baby

LP (Item 664105) Big Boy, 1989 — Condition: Near Mint-

Classic work from a time when Little Johnny Christian was a key figure on the small blues club scene in Chicago – with titles that include "All Because Of Your Love", "I Want To Know", "Turn In Point", "Somebody Call My Baby", "All Of Your Love", and "End Of The Rainbow".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(A nice copy!)

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.

Bobby Blue Bland

Sweet Vibrations
MCA, 1980. Sealed
Bobby Bland is one of those rare talents that never lost his groove, even as the years went on – maybe a bit like The Dells, in that he started out in the earliest days of soul music, but then was able to shift with the styles and the times, all without ever giving up the vocal strengths that ...

Buddy Guy

Man & The Blues
Vanguard, 1968. Very Good+
We love our Buddy Guy here in Chicago – and this set cut for Vanguard, one of his first full solo albums with his own band will always be a favorite! Buddy's late 60s sound was as charismatic as he'd always be, but there's an understated approach to his lead that's really wonderful, and hits ... LP, Vinyl record album

Percy Mayfield

Blues – And Then Some
RCA, 1971. Near Mint-
Forget the blues, and go for the "then some"! By this, we mean the funky cut "Right On Young Americans", which has a great intro and kind of a spoken righteous lyric, and some good keyboards by Weldon Irvine. Most of the other material is bluesy work, with kind of a jazzy ... LP, Vinyl record album

Junior Wells

Southside Blues Jam
Delmark, 1969/1970. Near Mint-
An incredible slice of Chicago blues – and maybe one of the most important contributions Delmark ever made to the Windy City scene! The album captures Junior Wells in all his rough and raw brilliance – working in territory that's quite similar to the Chess Records vibe of the early 60s ... LP, Vinyl record album

Junior Wells

Blues Hit Big Town
Delmark, Mid 50s. Near Mint-
Some of the first recordings ever from Chicago legend Junior Wells – made for the small States label in the Windy City, many years before Wells exploded out with much greater national fame! The music here has Junior stepping into the same early electric space that Chess Records was cutting ... LP, Vinyl record album

BB King

Live & Well
Bluesway/ABC, 1969. Very Good Gatefold
BB King not just live, but well-recorded in the studio too – in this classic ABC set that showcases both sides of his talents! Side one is the live set – and it's arguably better than any of the previous other concert recordings he did for the label – with a tighter, moodier feel ... LP, Vinyl record album

BB King & Bobby Bland

Together For The First Time – Live
ABC, 1974. Very Good+
A mid 70s meeting of two seminal blues talents from the Memphis scene – singer Bobby Blue Bland, and legendary guitarist BB King!

Jazz Five

Hooter
Riverside, 1960. Very Good+
One of the few albums by this hip modern jazz combo from the UK – a quintet with a twin horn lineup that plays the tenor of Vic Ash against the baritone of Harry Klein – maybe west west coast inspirations, but a harder swing overall! The res tof the group features Brian Dee on piano, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Tropical Buddah, Late 80s. Near Mint-
A good Latin jazz jam session from the late 80's – featuring a tight ensemble running through a number of hard swinging original compositions in a very classic mode. Tight New York sound, and the track list includes "One for Tito", "Macho's Latin Satin", "Guaguanco ... LP, Vinyl record album

McCoy Tyner

Tender Moments
Blue Note, Late 60s. Very Good+ Gatefold
An incredibly strong set by McCoy Tyner – one of his best late 60s sides for Blue Note – and a record that really hints at the majesty he'd attain on record in the 70s! The album features Tyner's piano at the head of a large group that includes Lee Morgan on trumpet, Julian Priester on ... LP, Vinyl record album
