Charlie Parker Vol 2 – Cool Blues

LP (Item 880523) Saga (UK), 1945/1946/1951 — Condition: Near Mint-

UK issue of a number of older bop sides – recorded in New York in 1945 (with the Red Norvo group), Hollywood in 1946 (with Dizzy Gillespie's Jazzmen), Hollywood in 1947 (with Errol Garner, and New York in 1951 (with a group that includes Walter Bishop and Mundell Lowe.) Titles include "This is Always", "Dark Shadows", "Cool Blues", "Diggin Diz", "Slam Slam Blues", and "Confirmation".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has unglued seams, some gloss separation, and is lightly bent at the bottom right corner.)

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.
