Still More Genius of Jankowski

LP (Item 6807) Mercury, 1966 — Condition: Near Mint-

Fantastic piano work from the very groovy Horst Jankowski – an artist who's really stepping into his own with this sweet mid 60s album! The set still follows the balance of electric bass and hard piano sounds from Horst – but it also fleshes out the music in a really great way, by adding in these lovely larger backings from the Erwinh Lehn orchestra – every bit as full of color as on their classic album for MPS! The Lehn touch is a great one – and makes the whole thing really sound wonderful – with that balance of tonal complexity and straightforward groove that made some of the MPS/Saba productions so great. Titles include "Violets In March", "Elmer's Tune", "Black Forest Holiday", "Shadow of Your Smile", "Danke Danke", "Sir Scotch Whiskey", and "Let's Live a Little".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Stereo pressing. Cover has a cutout hole.)

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.
