'47 - '48

LP (Item 741576) Hep (UK), Mid 40s — Condition: Near Mint-

A collection of mid-40s recordings with sidemen that include Allen Eager, Tommy Allison, Terry Gibbs, Charlie Shavers, and Ella Fitzgerald.  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Late 70s issue. Cover has light wear.)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor 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.

Verve, 1956. Near Mint-
A lively little set done strongly in a Basie mode – as you might guess from the title!

Swinging Buddy Rich
Norgran, Early 50s. Very Good
Buddy's got plenty of help to swing with here – on a set that features work by Benny Carter, Sonny Criss, or Willie Smith on alto, George Auld on tenor, Harry Edison on trumpet, and Gerald Wiggins on piano. The alto work of Smith and Criss is especially great – raspy, edgy, and with a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Speak No Evil
RCA, 1976. Near Mint-
One of the tightest 70s albums from Buddy Rich – a record that's got some smooth and soulful touches, and a groove that's quite different than most of his other work!
