Switched On Brandenburg – The Complete Concertos

LP (Item 751080) CBS, 1980 — Condition: Near Mint-
2LP Gatefold

(Grey label Columbia Masterworks pressing. Cover has some ring & edge wear and a promo stamp.)

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.

Stanley Black

Exotic Percussion
London, Mid 60s. Near Mint- Gatefold
Both Phase 4 and Stanley Black have made their share of snoozy LPs, but this is not one of them! The label lists the talent as "Stanley Black with Women's Voices", and boy do those gals give his music a kick. Their spooky chorus haunts these exotic ditties, and ally Stanley's sound much ...

Arthur Lyman

Legend Of Pele
Hi Fi, 1957. Near Mint-
One of the best albums ever recorded by Arthur Lyman – cut shortly after he departed Martin Denny's group, with a very similar exotica style. Lyman's vibes are nice and spooky, ringing out in the echoey setting of the album – which was Henry Kaiser's incredible Aluminum Dome in ... LP, Vinyl record album

Floyd Cramer

Class Of 66
RCA, 1966. Sealed
A set that mixes the tinkling piano of Cramer with some larger, fuller backings from Bill McElhiney – all recorded in RCA's Nashville studios, but with a sound that's very cosmopolitan, save for the occasional honky tonk twinge in Floyd's phrasing. Titles include a nice version of "Spani ... LP, Vinyl record album

Best Of Martin Denny
Liberty, Late 50s/Early 60s. Very Good+
Not really "the best", but a pretty nice collection of Denny's early work for Liberty – with a groovy photo on the back that shows him working with the group in action, beating on a big conga, while the rest of the band plays exotic percussion! Titles include "The Enchanted ... LP, Vinyl record album

George Benson

White Rabbit
CTI, 1971. Very Good Gatefold
One of the moodiest sessions on CTI from the early days – and a landmark album that took George Benson from the funky jazz scene into the upper reaches of 70s jazz. The record was put together by Don Sebesky, and it's a lot more high concept than some of George's earlier work – and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Stax, 1972. Very Good Gatefold
About as classic as you can get with the Staple Singers! The record was cut at that perfect moment when the group was forging an electric soul sound that would bring them high in the charts in the 70s – filled with all the righteousness of their gospel years, but also touched with elements ...
