One Of Mine

LP (Item 75354) Sue, Mid 60s — Condition: Very Good

Tightly grooving, jukebox thumping, hard wailing organ jazz from the great Jimmy McGriff – one of his best albums for the Sue label! Jimmy's got a sound here that's a lot rawer than earlier work – especially on the album's originals, like "Spindletop", "One Of Mine", "Blip Time", "Gospel Time", and "The Last Minute" – nice little numbers that cross the bridge between R&B and soul jazz with that heavy approach that always made Jimmy a favorite on the small combo lounge jazz scene of the time. Other tracks include "Teach Me Tonight", "Moonlight In Vermont", and "Broadway". (Orange label pressing with deep groove and Bell Sound stamp. Cover has a stain at the top.)  © 1996-2018, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.

A nice bit of funky organ work from Jimmy McGriff! The record's recorded with a slightly larger than usual band – but that's a good thing here, as players like Horace Ott, Cliff Davis, Richard Evans, and Everett Barksdale provide a strong bouncy groove, which Jimmy uses to solo over the top ...

Sue, 1962. Very Good
A hard and heavy Hammond jazz classic – and one of Jimmy McGriff's greatest recordings of the 60s!

Let's Stay Together
Groove Merchant, 1972. Very Good-
An early 70s gem from Jimmy McGriff! Jimmy's grooving with a larger group here – but in a funky 70s mode that makes for a great update of the rawer sound he laid out on some of his Sue sides in the 60s. The best tracks are the covers of 70s soul material – like "Shaft", ... LP, Vinyl record album

Arista Freedom, 1974. Near Mint-
Beautiful free-flowing work by Cecil Taylor – and a key album to document his solo piano genius in the 70s!

Arista Freedom, 1964/1975. Near Mint-
A seminal early moment from the legendary Albert Ayler – an important session recorded overseas in Copenhagen – where enthusiasm for Ayler's music caught fire more strongly than in the US!

Prestige, 1964. Near Mint-
One of the gems that Lucky Thompson cut on his return to the US in the mid 60s – and one of the few albums from that time that got wide release!

80s recording of an extended harmolodic composition for four string instruments and percussion (played by Denardo Coleman) in honor of R. Buckminster Fuller.
