Five Feet Of Soul

LP (Item 8473) Colpix, 1963 — Condition: Near Mint-

One of Jimmy Rushing's last truly great albums – a jazz-tinged session of bluesy material, one that gets at his best work of the 50s! The arrangements are by Al Cohn, and have a fluid swing that pushes Jimmy past cliche – working with players that include Zoot Sims, Budd Johnson, Freddie Green, and Gene Quill in a style that's got all the leaner touches of the Basie band at the same time. Titles include "Heartaches", "Please Come Back", "My Bucket's Got a Hole In it", "Did You Ever", and "Just Because".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Late 70s Ghent pressing. Cover has light wear.)

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.

Julie Driscoll, Brian Auger, & The Trinity

Open (aka Jools)
Atco, 1968. Very Good+ Gatefold
Great stuff – one of the amazing early albums from the team of Julie Driscoll and Brian Auger – kind of a next-generation to the Brit beat group sound of the mid 60s – one that moves beyond simple R&B modes, to bring in more sophisticated soul and jazz touches! Driscoll's ... LP, Vinyl record album
Verve, Early 60s. Near Mint-
Quite a popular live album from Ella – recorded in Berlin at the height of the cold war years – featuring a famous recording of "Mack The Knife" that almost blew away Bobby Darin's hit with the cut! The album's nicely free of some of the stodginess of some of Ella's Songbook ... LP, Vinyl record album

Annie Ross/Buddy Bregman

Gypsy
World Pacific, 1962. Very Good
A tremendous album from Annie Ross – a new recording of songs from the musical Gypsy, done in versions that are far superior to any that you may have previously heard! Backings are by Buddy Bregman, and Annie's cool and swinging vocals really works magic with tunes like "Some ... LP, Vinyl record album
Marterry/Argo, 1956. Very Good
Very obscure work by Al Hibbler – a collection issued in the 50s, but which appears to include work from earlier years, as the style and sound varies a bit from track to track. The set likely brings together material that was issued on singles, at a time when Hibbler's star was really rising ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jeannie Cheatham & Jimmy Cheatham

Sweet Baby Blues
Concord, 1984. Very Good+
A sweetly stepping session of bluesy jazz vocals from Jeannie Cheatham – outwardly a trad-oriented record, but done here with some nice light west coast touches that really capture the best of the Concord groove of the early 80s. There's a gentle swing to the tracks that reminds us of some ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dinah Shore

Bouquet Of Blues
RCA, 1956. Near Mint-
Dinah Shore's definitely got a bouquet of blues here – thanks to some backings that echo the moody, late nite image on the cover! The set's one of Shore's most blue-hued ever – a surprisingly beautiful little record that features orchestrations from Henri Rene, Frank DeVol, and Harry ... LP, Vinyl record album

Eddie Jefferson

Main Man
Inner City, 1977. Near Mint-
One of our favorite albums ever from Eddie Jefferson – one of the last sessions he ever recorded as a leader, and a stone cooker through and through! The arrangements here are by Slide Hampton, who hits a really soulful groove for the set – one that moves away from some of the more ... LP, Vinyl record album

Nancy Wilson

Nancy
Capitol, Late 60s. Near Mint-
A self-titled set from Nancy Wilson – and a record that definitely lives up to everything the Nancy name meant at the end of the 60s! The album's got a depth that can take on comers from all corners – enough class and sophistication to match the modes of Marlena Shaw or Dionne Warwick, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Astrud Gilberto

Gilberto With Turrentine
CTI, 1971. Very Good+ Gatefold
Incredible 70s work from the lovely Astrud Gilberto – a rare effort for the CTI label that has her teaming up with arranger Eumir Deodato and saxophonist Stanley Turrentine – all in a groove that's totally different than most of her earlier work! Astrud's breathy vocals are still ... LP, Vinyl record album
