Wheelin (Dealers/Wheelin & Dealin)

LP (Item 73184) Prestige, 1957 — Condition: Used
2LP Gatefold
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.70 5

A 2LP set that expands on tunes originally issued on the Coltrane/Mal Waldron albums The Dealers and Wheelin & Dealin – both featuring material recorded in 1957, with Coltrane on tenor, and a rhythm section that features Waldron, Doug Watkins, and Art Taylor. The tracks are open-ended and very much in the blowing session mode that Waldron perfected for Prestige – solidly rhythmic, and quite cohesive, yet also very open-handed in the way that each player is allowed space for solo expression. Paul Quinichette and Frank Wess perform on 3 sides of the set, and the last one features Jackie McLean and Bill Hardman taking their place. Includes 2 takes each of "Wheelin" and "Dealin", plus "Blue Calypso", "Falling In Love With Love", "Robbin's Nest", and "Things Ain't What They Used To Be". (Cover has a cut corner and light wear, with a blank paste-on inside the gatefold.)  © 1996-2015, 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.

Prestige, 1961. Good+
This is volume 3 of Prestige's set of European recordings by Dolphy, some of the last he would make before he passed away at a very young age. The group features Swedish piano giant Bent Axen, plus a rhythm section that includes Erik Moseholm on bass and Jorn Elniff on drums. Like most Dolphy ... LP, Vinyl record album

Hustle To Survive
Atlantic, 1975. Very Good+
Sweet funky soul from Les McCann – one of the best of his 70s albums that bring in a lot of vocals with the keyboards – and served up in some tight tunes that really pack a nice sort of punch! The album doesn't have the long jammers of some of McCann's other records from the time ... LP, Vinyl record album

Electric Byrd
Blue Note, 1970. Near Mint-
Donald Byrd in a sweet electric mode – as you'd guess from the title! The set was recorded right before Byrd's legendary run with Larry Mizell in the early 70s – and the electric approach is a bit different here – a style that blends Byrd's wonderful trumpet lines with the larger ...
