Come Along With Me

LP (Item 8817) Prestige, 1969 — Condition: Very Good+

One of the grooviest albums ever from Eddie Jefferson – a perfect blend of his earlier vocalese roots with a hipper, more swinging 60s style of soul jazz! The album's got an upbeat, joyous feel throughout – exploding with the sort of dynamic energy we've always loved in Eddie's singing at its best – a charming, captivating groove that's unlike anyone else we can think of, and which is more Jefferson-esque here than on any other record by Eddie! The group's a tightly swinging ensemble that includes Bill Hardman on trumpet, Charles McPherson on alto, and Barry Harris on piano – and titles include the great leadoff tune "Come Along With Me", a bit of space age vocalese that has Eddie swinging his way to the moon – plus "Son Of A Preacher Man", "The Preacher", "Dexter Digs In", "Baby Girl", and "Please Leave Me Alone".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Blue circle logo label stereo pressing. Cover has two small cutout holes, some light stains, and notes in pen on back.)

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight 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.
