Earwax

LP (Item 6750) Munich (Netherlands), 1970 — Condition: Very Good+

Funky fusion recording from 1970, featuring drummer Pierre Courbois, guitarist Toto Blanke, bassist Sigi Busch, and keyboardist Jasper Van't Hoff. The sound is nice and spare at times, with sort of a freewheeling post-Bitches Brew feel to it, and none of the overdone bam-bam-bam moments that mar some of the later Association PC records. Cuts include "Spider", "Jazzper", and "Earwax".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Non-gatefold pressing. Cover has some wear and aging.)

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.

Scotch & Soul
Atlantic, 1967. Very Good
A gimmicky cover, a gimmick title, but one heck of a soulful set of jazz!

Philadelphia International, 1976. Very Good
A fantastic bit of space age funk – and maybe one of the greatest moments ever from Philly Soul maestro Dexter Wansel!

Oh Girl
Atlantic, 1972. Very Good+
Wicked electric funk from Young Holt Unlimited – and a real departure from the sound of their 60s albums, and a step into a groove that's very 70s-styled overall!

Atco, 1966. Very Good+
A landmark set of grooves by this excellent Detroit group – a trio who recorded for the local indie Karen, but got a much bigger boost towards fame when their record was picked up by Atlantic!

Atco, 1972. Very Good Gatefold
Massively beautiful work from the great Donny Hathaway!

The result is one of the best ... LP, Vinyl record album
