Two Of A Mind/Glad To Be Unhappy

CD (Item 872045) RCA/Collectables, 1962/1965 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

CD

✈

Two albums of dreamy jazz from the great Paul Desmond – who at this point was turning into a very formidable player away from his old mentor, Dave Brubeck! Two Of A Mind features Desmond's alto next to the warm baritone of Gerry Mulligan – in a cool pairing that's made even better by the lack of piano work on the record. Titles include "All The Things You Are", "Two Of A Mind", "Out Of Nowhere", and "Blight Of The Fumble Bee". Glad To Be Unhappy is one of a number of excellent RCA albums that puts Desmond in the company of guitarist Jim Hall – a wonderful player whose spare cool tone was a perfect match for Desmond's alto. Again, the group has no pianist – and tracks include "Angel Eyes", "Stranger In Town", "Taste Of Honey", and "Any Other Time".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.


Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible.

When you purchase a Used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use but if there are significant details or defects we will list them underneath the item — just like we do with LPs — so look there for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details.

All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.
