Cool Sound Of Albert Collins (Crosscut pressing)

LP (Item 670770) Crosscut (Germany), 1965 — Condition: Near Mint-
Originally: 9.99
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, and vamp along with horns, organ, and some other smoking 60s touches that push the record far away from just a straight blues set. Plenty of great instrumentals here – and titles include "Kool Ade", "Backstroke", "Frosty", "Hot N Cold", "Frost Bite", "Tremble", "Icy Blue", "Sno Cone II", and "Shiver N Shake".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(80s pressing. NOTE – Cover is entirely wavy from moisture with an unglued top seam, but somehow without stains.)

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.

Ornette Coleman

Body Meta
Artists House, 1978. Near Mint- Gatefold
Heavy duty stuff, and one of Ornette's best LPs from the 70's. Recorded in 1976, this is a perfect demonstration of the harmelodic style, with the whole group jaunting along in tight choppy bits. James Blood Ulmer's on guitar, and the sound is very dark and deep. Tracks include "Voice ... LP, Vinyl record album

He's All I've Got
Unlimited Gold, 1976. Very Good+
Despite what was probably an easy temptation to go pop disco, Barry White and the girls here stick pretty closely to their classic 70's soul sound – the large part of which was a huge inspiration for disco in the first place. Barry's production, as always, is excellent, as is his songwriting ... LP, Vinyl record album
