Mr Johnson Play For Me

LP (Item 870556) Sony (Nigeria), 1992 — Condition: Fair

(FAIR CONDITION. Cover has some wear and pen.)

Fair

This is a grade we rarely use, as we try not to sell records in very bad condition, though in some rare cases we will list a record in such bad shape that it does not conform to the standards above. A "Fair" record will have enough marks or significant flaws that it does not even qualify as "Good", but is a copy you might consider for playing, if you're willing to put up with noise and/or flaws. An example might be a recording with surface noise so heavy that it is equal to the volume of the music. For records listed as "Fair", we will describe the extent of the condition in the comments.

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.

Free funky fusion, with a bit of the hard edge that European groups were using at the time, but played by an obscure group from Chicago, and with Chico Freeman guesting on reeds. There's some nice funky drumming in here by Andy Potter, with chunky breaks that you'd expect to find on a fusion ... LP, Vinyl record album
