Woody

LP (Item 71578) Cadet, 1970 — Condition: Very Good+

The most obscure of Woody's albums for Cadet – and a bit different than the other two! The album still features one side of upbeat groovy tunes – recorded with Richard Evans in a style that's a mix of big band funk and Cadet Records soul – and which show Woody to be a lot hipper than anyone might have thought at the time – putting together some amazing arrangements of tunes that soar with great power, still very jazzy, but also filled with a youthful energy that's really great. Includes a great version of "How Can I Be Sure", plus cool originals like "Smiling Phases", "A Stone Called Person", and "Saccharine Sally". The difference here, though, is that some of the tunes also have some vocals by Woody – sounding pretty cool, actually, and almost spoken – and that one side of the record is dominated by a long version of "Blues In The Night", with a solo by Tom Harrell.  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.
