Creek Bank

LP (Item 71642) Prestige, Early 60s — Condition: Very Good+

One of Mose's best early albums – even though he hardly gets a chance to sing on it! The album features some great work by Allison's trio of the time – Addison Farmer on bass and Ronnie Free on drums – simple piano-driven groovers, performed with a slight gutbuckety approach, and lots of sweet down home soul. Mose sings a bit on the classic "Seventh Son", a groover that's kept him going for years, and on the great tune "If You Live", which also has a similar feel. Other tracks include "Mule", "If I Didn't Care", "Moon & Cypress", and "Creek Bank".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Blue label pressing. Cover has a sticker spot.)

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.

Mose Alive
Atlantic, 1966. Sealed

One of a handful of records cut by the lovely singer Byrdie Green for Prestige during the 60s!

Evenin' Blues
Prestige, 1964. Near Mint-
A great batch of raw R&B vocals from Jimmy Witherspoon – along with backing by an excellent group that includes the great Clifford Scott on tenor, the always-great T-Bone Walker on guitar, and the little-known Bert Kendrix on organ.
