Date With Johnny Pate

LP (Item 6867) King, 1959 — Condition: Very Good
Live set by the great Chicago bassist, recorded at the London House, with a piano trio though the rest of the personnel aren't listed. Though Pate is more well known for his later work, these early sides have a nice south side jazz feel to them. Cuts are short and lively, with a good club feel. Tracks include "Date With Pate", "Mean To Me", "Huff's Bluff", "Lonesome Road", "Flamingo", "Have You Met Miss Jones", and "Why Don't You Try".  © 1996-2024, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Mono black label pressing with deep groove. Cover has a split top seam, splitting on the bottom seam, surface wear & aging.)

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.

One of the sharpest altos of the east – heard here in a great early album!
