Focus – KPM 1307

LP (Item 702142) KPM (UK), 1983 — Condition: Near Mint-

More of a straight jazz album than usual for the KPM sound library – an excellent set featuring British alto player Peter King – with John Horler on piano, Dave Green on bass, and Spike Wells on drums!  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

Greetings & Salutations
Philips, 1976. Near Mint-
An overlooked gem from the great Thad Jones – and a nicely different set than some of his US dates with drummer Mel Lewis! During the mid and late 70s, Thad Jones made more than a few great recordings in Sweden, a number of them with a loose collective of musicians from the country's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dude
A&M, 1981. Near Mint-
Quincy just never stopped putting out classic soulful albums! This one, from the early 80s, features a smooth jazzy blend of tracks, with a strong nod to the kinds of souped-up studio sounds that were being used by groups like The Crusaders, but also with a lot of the kind of soulfulness that made ...
