Back In Town

LP (Item 776744) Pacific Jazz, 1962 — Condition: Very Good

An unusual combination – as bluesman Bumble Bee Slim gets backing from a host of west coast jazz talents – including Curtis Amy on tenor, Groove Holmes on Hammond, Lou Blackburn on trombone, and Les McCann on piano!  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Brown/red vinyl pressing! Cover has light wear and a name on the front – vinyl has a short click on one track.)

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.

Bo Diddley

Where It All Began
Chess, 1972. Very Good+
Nasty nasty funk from the great Bo Diddley – one of his rare funky 70s classics for Chess – produced by Johnny Otis with a really tripped-out groove! The album's got an edge that seems to go even farther than some of Bo's other Chess work at the time – and picks up the full-on ... LP, Vinyl record album
Heritage (UK), Late 20s/Early 30s. Near Mint-
A really unusual collection – as most of the material was recorded in the late 20s, and the names of all the performers have been lost to the shifting sands of time! The recordings were done by Lawrence Gellert, and in more of a ethnographic style than some of the studio releases of the time. LP, Vinyl record album

Columbia, 1976. Very Good+
A range of styles from Taj Mahal – from slow rolling, reggae tinged bluesy soul, to much bigger arrangements working in elements of funk, country soul, and more smoothed out jams on a bed of brass and backing vocals – Taj is all over the place here, and it a lot of it works surprisingly ...

If you've never got the concept of a string band, this is the record to really illuminate your ears – as it features a beautiful set of stripped-down sides by the Mississippi Sheiks – all recorded in the early 30s, and a wonderful blend of bluesy inflection and folksy roots!

Shirley Scott

Latin Shadows
Impulse, 1965. Very Good+ Gatefold
A great album from Shirley Scott – with some excellent arrangements by Gary McFarland! We've always felt that Shirley plays best when she's not leading the group – when someone else is handling the arrangements, so that she can groove mightily on her own – and this album is a ...

Cadet, 1968. Near Mint-
One of our favorite Ramsey Lewis albums of all time – an incredible reworking of tunes by The Beatles, done in collaboration with Cadet Records studio maestro Charles Stepney – who brings in some amazing arrangements and production styles to the record! The tunes are familiar, but the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Coltrane (Impulse)
