Distinctive Rhythm Instrumentals (10 inch LP)

LP (Item 715278) Fantasy, 1950 — Condition: Very Good+

Amazing work from the young Dave Brubeck – tunes that are definitely distinctive, given his fresh modern approach to the music! The group's an octet, with Paul Desmond on alto – and titles include Brubeck arrangements of "Let's Fall In Love", "Love Walked In", "The Way You Look Tonight", and "September In The Rain" – plus group originals "Ipca" and "Prelude & Fugue On Bop Themes".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Original black vinyl pressing, with paste-on cover – a nice copy!)

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.
