Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.

Jimmy Smith

House Party
Blue Note, Late 50s. Good
One of the best hard-wailing all-star sessions that Jimmy did so well for Blue Note! The album features an amazing array of top-line players – like Tina Brooks, Lee Morgan, Curtis Fuller, Lou Donaldson, Art Blakey, and Kenny Burrell – and they all play with Smith in differing ... LP, Vinyl record album
Blue Note, Early 50s. Very Good
Volume 2 of a pair of LPs that brought together Miles Davis' early recordings for Blue Note – some excellent sessions recorded in 1952, 1953, and 1954, featuring Miles' young trumpet blowing in a wonderful mix of cool, bop, lyrical, and modern jazz. The style's a bit rougher than later years ... LP, Vinyl record album

George Russell & The Living Time Orchestra

African Game
Blue Note, 1983. Sealed
With featured soloists including Keith Copeland, Olu Bata, George Garzone, Mike Peipman, Mark White, Dave Mann, Chip Kaner, Mark White, Gary Joynes, Bob Nieske, and Marc Rossi. Titles include "Organic Life On Earth Begins", "Surival Game", "Human Sensing Of Unity With ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lou Donaldson

Lush Life
Blue Note, 1967. Sealed
An unusual session from the heart of Lou Donaldson's return to Blue Note in the late 60s – a mellower date that stands in strong contrast to his funkier albums of the time! As you might guess from the title, there's a lusher feel going on here – one that has Lou's alto sax augmented by ... LP, Vinyl record album
Blue Note, 1960. Very Good+
A landmark album that had one of the best versions of the Jazz Messengers taking a big step forward – thanks to some increased songwriting by the group's young tenor genius – Wayne Shorter! Shorter's tunes take up all of the second half of the record, and all of them have gone onto ... LP, Vinyl record album
Blue Note, 1953. Very Good+
Bud's second LP for Blue Note – a firey batch of trio tracks that feature George Duvivier on bass and Art Taylor on drums – some of Powell's best work from the time, and a nearly all-classic set of bop piano tracks! The album's nothing fancy on the outset, but Powell and the trio ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jackie McLean

Tippin' The Scales
Blue Note, 1962/1984. Near Mint-
A sweet little quartet from Jackie McLean – a later entry into his bop-level sets for Blue Note, recorded right before his "new thing" years! The album never got a proper release back in the 60s, and only first saw the light of day two decades later – but it's a real cooker ... LP, Vinyl record album
Blue Note, 1953. Very Good
Clifford Brown only recorded a handful of sides for Blue Note – but all of the best ones are included in this excellent album – a full length set that culls together Brown's material from the 10" years, issued as a memorial to his early death in 1956! Side one features Brown with ... LP, Vinyl record album

Tony Williams

Spring
Blue Note, 1965. Very Good
Startling! This album is one of two that a young Tony Williams cut for Blue Note, back when he was just hitting the age of 20, and when he was already blowing the minds of masters like Jackie McLean (who first hired him) and Miles Davis (who stole him from Jackie for his own group!) with an ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lou Donaldson

Midnight Sun
Blue Note, 1960/1980. Very Good+
A killer from Lou Donaldson's early hardbop years at Blue Note – recorded right during his classic run of albums for the label, but not issued until many years later! There's a sweet bounce to most tracks here – the kind of vibe that Lou had most famously on his Blues Walk album – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jerome Richardson

Groove Merchant
Verve, Late 60s. Very Good
A great little album of jazzy tracks from multi-talented reedman Jerome Richardson! The album's got a sort of jazzy meets Now Sound sound – sort of like the Benny Golson or Cal Tjader albums on Verve from the time, and it's a great one if you dig that sort of thing. The tracks are mostly ... LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny Lytle

Everything Must Change
Muse, 1978. Very Good
A later Muse date with legend John Patton on organ, Miles' drummer Al Foster diggin' in with the legendary George Duvivier on bass, and harp and synthesizer thrown in for added layers of sound. Johnny's signature songs the "Village Caller" and the mellow burner "Lela" are cast ... LP, Vinyl record album
