Christmas With Johnny Mathis

LP (Item 741835) Columbia, 1963 — Condition: Near Mint-

(Mid 70s pressing in a barcode cover, with a cutout hole.)

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.

John Coltrane

Ballads
Impulse, 1962. Near Mint-
A perennial favorite in the John Coltrane catalog – a beautiful set of standards, handled in a warm laidback style – but which still has some of the depth of soul that John Coltrane brought to his more experimental work on Impulse Records! The album's a classic introduction to the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Miles Davis

Sketches Of Spain
Columbia, 1960. Near Mint-
A beautiful collaboration between Miles Davis and the great Gil Evans – and perhaps the most perfectly realized of all their projects! The album's got a wonderfully unified feel – as it begins with long compositions that have a distinct Spanish-tinge (and not a Latin-tinge, which is an ... LP, Vinyl record album

George Benson

It's Uptown
Columbia, 1967. Near Mint-
George Benson's first LP for Columbia – a hard, heavy, soul jazz slammer that bears no resemblance to his overproduced work of the 70s! The album's a real cooker – recorded hot on the heels of Benson's classic work on Prestige with the Jack McDuff group, and sounding a lot like McDuff's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Double Exposure

Ten Percent
Salsoul, 1976. Near Mint-
A wonderful album – one of those underground classics that seems to show up in everyone's record collection, even though it was never a huge chart hit. Double Exposure are part of the "second wave" of East Coast vocal groups – and like their contemporaries, they mix the sweet ... LP, Vinyl record album

Arnett Cobb

Party Time
Prestige, 1959. Near Mint-
A mighty big party from tenor giant Arnett Cobb – a player who always blew strongly in other settings, but really hit his height on these albums for Prestige! The record is a perfect mix of Cobb's bluesy roots and a more sophisticated modern jazz setting – with support from a crack ... LP, Vinyl record album

Charles Tyler

Sixty Minute Man
Adelphi, 1980. Sealed
Material recorded live on WBAI in Maryland, and featuring Tyler playing solo, in a very haunting vein. Tyler plays baritone on 2 tracks – "Tale Of Bari Red" and "Sixty Minute Man", the latter an almost indistinguishable version of the big hit for The Dominoes from the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Hannibal Marvin Peterson

Naima
East World (Japan), Late 70s. Near Mint-
Beautiful direct to disc session that stands as one of our favorites by trumpeter Hannibal Marvin Peterson. He's playing here with Kenny Barron, Cecil McBee, and Billy Hart – and in a style that's typical of the warm spiritual imagination of these Japanese sessions from the 70's. The title ...

Bel Air (France), Early 60s. Very Good+
A beautiful record by American ex-pat Lou Bennett – a Hammond player who moved to France, where he did the bulk of his recording! Bennett conceived this album as a moody mix of jazz and spirituals – in a similar vein to Donald Byrd's classic "with voices" albums for Blue Note ... LP, Vinyl record album
