Young Man Mose

LP (Item 773649) Prestige, 1958 — Condition: Very Good+

Tremendous early work from the great Mose Allison – a Prestige album that captures Mose when he was coming off some straighter jazz years as a pianist, but also working to discover his own unique groove as well! Mose plays piano, but also sings on three tracks, and plays trumpet on one more – in a trio with Addison Farmer on bass and Nick Stabulas on drums. The sound isn't as all-out Nola as some of Allison's records to come in the next few years, but is still pretty darn great – with titles that include "Stroll", "Somebody Else Is Taking My Place", "Baby Let Me Hold Your Hand", "My Kinda Love", and "Don't Get Around Much Anymore".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Mono yellow and black label NJ pressing with deep groove and RVG stamp. Cover is lightly stained at the bottom 2 inches, hardly visible on front, but with some flaking on back.)

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight 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.
