Wessel Ilcken & Rita Reys – Jazz Behind The Dikes 4 (10 inch LP)

LP (Item 831347) Philips, 1955/1966 — Condition: Near Mint-

One of the best of the legendary Jazz Behind The Dikes 10" LP series – an important set of 50s recordings that showcased the great work coming out of the Netherlands in the postwar years! This set features a number of tracks led by drummer Wessel Ilcken and featuring trumpet by Jerry Van Rooyen, better known for his later groovy soundtrack work. Many of the tracks feature vocals by the lovely Rita Reyes, and other players include tenor sax player Toon Van Vliet, trombonist Dick Bezemer, and pianist Rob Madona. Tracks include "A Dandy Line", "For Minors Only", "I Should Care", "The Goofer" and "Wailing For Weelink".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Japanese presing, on Norma – better cover and vinyl than the original!)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor 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.

Philips (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. Near Mint-
Nice compilation that brings together tight jazzy big band material from Quincy's years at the Mercury label!
