LP, Vinyl record album

❔

...

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.

Bob James

Two
CTI, 1975. Very Good+ Gatefold
A monster – and quite possibly one of the greatest Fender Rhodes albums of all time! Bob James is really at the height of his powers here – stepping out with a sound that's a lot smoother than some of his earlier work, yet in a groove that's never too slick or too overproduced – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Atlantic, 1972. Very Good+ Gatefold
Wild electric work from Les McCann – an album of free, open sounds that's quite a change from his styles of the 60s – and from most of his other work of the 70s too! Side one features an extended 26 minute track titled "The Lovers" – a slow-building number that has Les ... LP, Vinyl record album

Joe Farrell

Moon Germs
CTI, 1973. Very Good+ Gatefold
One of the best records ever cut by funky sax man Joe Farrell! The album's got a stripped down, choppy groove – virtually the blueprint for later 70s funk of this type, and played perfectly by Farrell and a very hip quartet lineup! Players include Joe on soprano and tenor sax, Herbie ... LP, Vinyl record album

Section

Section
Warner, 1972. Very Good
A famous session group, sounding great hear on their own – in a tight blend of fusion styles that run the gamut from rockish jamming to tight and funky! The quartet features Danny Kortchmar on guitar, Russ Kunkel on drums, Craig Doerge on keys and Leland Sklar on bass – players who'd ... LP, Vinyl record album
Blue Note, 1970. Very Good+
The title's no lie – because the album is one of the shining jewels of Lou Donaldson's legendary funk years for Blue Note – that second period when he returned to the label at the end of the 60s, and really helped redefine the sound of soul jazz at the time! The format here is very ... LP, Vinyl record album

Art Farmer/Benny Golson

Meet The Jazztet
Argo, 1960. Very Good+
Landmark work by one of the greatest jazz outfits of the early 60s! Art Farmer and Benny Golson were both known as well-composed players during the 50s – strongly soulful, but often with a fine sense of arrangement that usually tended towards the lyrical side of things. With this group, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Clare Fischer

Salsa Picante
MPS, 1978. Very Good+
Very nice electric Latin jazz session from this legendary LA piano player. Clare plays organ and electric piano, and the group also features Poncho Sanchez on congas. The band has a wonderful warm mellow groove, and the record is one of Fischer's best from the time! Includes a great version of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Weather Report

Heavy Weather
CBS, 1977. Very Good+
One of the biggest hits ever for Weather Report – thanks to Joe Zawinul's leadoff track "Birdland" – one of those tunes that entered the canon immediately, and saw countless covers pop up over the years – kind of a rare thing for a jazz tune at this point in time! The ... LP, Vinyl record album

Joe Pass

Stones Jazz
World Pacific, 1966. Very Good+
A sweet jazzy take on the music of The Rolling Stones – one that features guitarist Joe Pass in the lead, over some tight backings from the great Bob Florence! Joe's joined by Dennis Budimir on additional acoustic guitar – and both players ring out with a hollow-body sound that's a lot ... LP, Vinyl record album

Weather Report

Sweetnighter
Columbia, 1973. Very Good+
One of our favorite albums ever from Weather Report – an album that has them picking up a bit more soul than before, and shaking off some of the experimental sounds of their roots – yet all in a way that still makes them one of the most revolutionary fusion combos of the time! There's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Minnie Riperton

Adventures In Paradise
Epic, 1975. Very Good+
Maybe our favorite-ever album from Minnie Riperton during the 70s – a sweet, smooth jazzy gem that really makes some of the best use of her vocals! There's a sophistication here that's a great 70s counterpart to Minnie's earlier work with Charles Stepney – served up here in a very ... LP, Vinyl record album

Average White Band

Soul Searching
Atlantic, 1976. Very Good+
Sublime mid 70s work from The Average White Band – and a record that really has the group deepening their groove a bit – moving past the heavier funk of their roots, into some mellower grooves that are totally great! There's a great undercurrent of jazz in some of the playing here ... LP, Vinyl record album
