LP, Vinyl record album

(€14.40 || £13.17 || ¥1860) (approx.)

A weird little set on Flying Dutchman – a live set that features the talents of Leon Thomas, T-Bone Walker, Eddie Vinson, and Joe Turner on vocals – plus instrumental backing by players that include Elvin Jones, Wynton Kelly, Howard Morgan, Earl (aka Neal) Creque, and Richard Landrum. The groove here is a mix of blues and funky soul – hipper than the usual blues set of the time, especially on the Leon Thomas tracks "Welcome To New York", "Damn Nam (Aint' Goin To Vietnam)", and "Disillusion Blues". Leon sings lead vocals on half the album – and other tracks include "Sail On", "Stormy Monday Blues", "I Had A Dream", "Person To Person", and "Honey Hush".

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.

Eddie was way more than a bluesman – and here's the proof of that! The album has Eddie both singing and playing alto sax – in a set of hip, openly flowing tracks recorded live at the Montreux Jazz Festival in 1971.
