Why Not

LP (Item 80565) Muse, 1978 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.80 5

Later work from Don Patterson – but a record that still shows him in fine fine form! The tunes are all long and spacious – no gimmicks, just straight ahead soul jazz, in that beautiful back-to-basics mode that Muse was using with Charles Earland around the same time. The group's a quintet – bigger than usual for Patterson – with Don on the Hammond, plus Bootsie Barnes on tenor, Eddie McFadden on guitar, Virgil Jones on trumpet, and Idris Muhammad on drums. Titles include "Aries", "Why Not", "Three Miles Out", and "Freddie Tooks Jr". (Side 2 has a mark that clicks a bit on track two. Cover has a cutout notch, some wear, fading on the spine, and some small stains.)  © 1996-2015, Dusty Groove, Inc.

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.

Used Vinyl Grades

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, please note that all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:

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.
