What Because

LP (Item 784698) Gramavision, 1990 — Condition: Very Good+

With Ray Anderson on trombone, Allan Jaffe on guitar, John Hicks on piano, Mark Dresser on bass, and Pheeroan Aklaff on drums.  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has a cut corner.)

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.

Jimmy Smith & Wes Montgomery

Further Adventures of Jimmy & Wes
Verve, 1966. Very Good+
The second great session from two of Verve's biggest jazz stars of the 60s – organist Jimmy Smith and guitarist Wes Montgomery – an unlikely pair, to be sure, but one who work great together on the set! The real change here is in Wes' playing – as it's shifted from the mellower ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gary McFarland

Soft Samba
Verve, 1964. Very Good+ Gatefold
A dream of a record from Gary McFarland – lightly jazzy instrumentals with a warm bossa nova undercurrent! The style is incredible – a sweet blend of vibes, guitar, and even some light whistling – often also featuring wordless jazz vocals – scatting along with the groove in ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jack McDuff & David Newman

Double Barrelled Soul
Atlantic, 1968. Very Good+
One of the more open-ended sessions that Brother Jack cut for Atlantic – with less of the tight larger soul arrangements that the label usually saddled him with. (Not that we mind those, though!) David Newman plays a variety of saxes, and the group also includes a young Melvin Sparks on ... LP, Vinyl record album

Roland Kirk

Kirk's Works (Emarcy)
EmArcy, Early 60s/1977. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
Cool 2LP collection of some of Roland Kirk's best stuff from his Mercury years, including a motherlode of tracks that are very very hard to find on LP! Tracks include "Reed & Deeds", "Rip Rig & Panic", "Where Monk & Mingus Live", "Get Out Of Town" ... LP, Vinyl record album
Jazzland, Late 40s/1962. Very Good+
Very sharp LP issue of some of the legendary late 40's bop recordings that were cut in New York under the leadership of Tadd Dameron! The groups are all pretty darn smoking, and the record features some classic work by Fats Navarro on trumpet, Allan Eager on tenor, Milt Jackson on vibes, and Kenny ... LP, Vinyl record album

Don Patterson

Funk You
Prestige, 1969. Very Good+
A very cooking set by this great 60s organist – and one that has him leading a 2-horn frontline that includes Sonny Stitt and Charles McPherson. Pat Martino's on guitar, and Patterson's longtime drummer Billy James plays with a nice free style. Lots of nice tracks – like "My Man ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jimmy Smith

On The Sunny Side
Blue Note, Late 50s/1981. Very Good+
A wealth of unreleased tracks recorded by Jimmy Smith for Blue Note in the late 50s – most of them short, with a feel that's like his 45rpm work for the label! The sound here is prime early Smith – that totally cooking Hammond sound he had back in the day – mostly set up here in ... LP, Vinyl record album

Wes Montgomery

Day In The Life
CTI/A&M, 1967. Very Good+ Gatefold
Mindblowing! This is when Wes Montgomery really starts to get interesting to us – when he's working with a top-line arranger like Don Sebesky, crafting some incredibly compelling chords over lightly jazzy arrangements and soaring strings, in a whole new mode of expression that would go onto ... LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny Guitar Watson

Real Mother For Ya
DJM, 1977. Very Good+
Johnny Guitar Watson at the top of his game – working here in a sublime mix of funk, blues, and soul – all crafted into a groove that was uniquely Watson's own! Johnny may have started the 70s in relative obscurity – down from some hit work in the 50s and 60s – but by the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Hi Records, 1975. Near Mint-
What can we say? Most of the biggest hits, and many of the very best tracks cut in the prime of Al Green's career – which is to say some of the very best Memphis soul ever recorded! 10 essential tracks in all, and it's just one of these Greatest Hits packages of pure, inarguable perection ... LP, Vinyl record album

Beastie Boys

Licensed To Ill
Def Jam, 1986. Very Good- Gatefold
The game changing Def Jam classic! Profane party anthems galore, and the Beasties would distance themselves from much of the attitude of this album, making their career arc from stoopid (as opposed to stupid) to thoughtful and playful innovators one of the more interesting artistic evolutions of ...
