Hello There Universe

LP (Item 73031) Atlantic, 1970 — Condition: Used
Gatefold
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


One of Mose's best albums for Atlantic – an ambitious session that features larger arrangements backing him up, making for a much fuller sound than on other records! The album includes a greatly grooving version of "Wild Man On The Loose" – done with this cool sneaky organ – and lots of the other tracks feature strong horn parts that flesh out the sound, and give a nice edge to Mose's vocals. Other titles include "On The Run", "Somebody Gotta Move", "No Exit", "I'm Smashed", and "Hello There Universe". (White label promo. Cover has a promo sticker & light wear.)  © 1996-2017, Dusty Groove, Inc.

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.

Used Vinyl Grades

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, please note that all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:

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.

One of Bobby D's albums from his confused period in the mid 60s! Sounds sort of goofy, but it actually works, thanks to some swinging arrangements by Roger Kellaway, and the pep and zip of the score. Plus, the cover's got Bobby leaning on a push me-pull me, with a doctor's bag and a big stovepipe ... LP, Vinyl record album

Commodore/Atlantic, 1939/1944. Very Good+ Gatefold
A great issue of some of Billie Holiday's classic sides for the Commodore label – a company she didn't work with often, but home to some of her best material of the early years! The tracks here were mostly recorded in 1944, but the set also features some early bits from 1939 as well – ... LP, Vinyl record album

One of the most obscure albums we've ever seen from Jimmy Scott – and that's saying a lot, given how obscure most of his career was before his relatively recent revival! This session – billed in the notes as his "umpteenth comeback" – was recorded in Chicago in 1975, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Atlantic, 1962. Very Good+
Amazing stuff – and one of Chris Connor's greatest records for Atlantic!
