Billy Eckstine – The Great Mr B & His All Star Band (10 inch LP)

LP (Item 905876) DeLuxe, Mid 40s — Condition: Good
Fantastic work from a time when Billy Eckstine had one of the hippest groups going – a bop-heavy lineup that features trumpet from Dizzy Gillespie, and saxes from Gene Ammons, Dexter Gordon, and Wardell Gray!  © 1996-2024, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has a partially split seam and light surface wear.)


  • A record that you'd buy to play, cheap, but which you wouldn't buy for collecting.
  • Will have marks across all parts of the playing surface, and will most likely play with surface noise throughout. May have some other significant flaws, such as residue, or a track that skips.
  • In most cases, a poor quality copy of a very difficult to find record.

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.

No Cover No Minimum
Roulette, 1960. Near Mint-
A really great album by Billy Eckstine – much more swinging and upbeat than some of his other 50s sessions, and with a strongly pronounced jazz flair overall!

Momento Brasileiro
Som Livre (Brazil), 1979. Near Mint-
One of the most unusual albums ever from Billy Eckstine – and one of the best, too! The set's cut quite late in Billy's career, and is an unusual outing of Brazilian tunes – done in the same mature, mellow mode used by Sarah Vaughan in her later Brazilian sets, too! The set was ...

Modern Sound Of Mr B
Mercury, 1964. Very Good
Well, we don't know if Mr B could ever be considered "modern", but this is a pretty groovy batch of 60s pop tunes – like "Mister Kicks", "People", "Wanted", "Wives & Lovers", and "A Beautiful Friendship" – all done to ... LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny Hartman

I've Been There
Perception, 1973. Very Good
Although not as classic as his "classic" recordings, this album recorded for Perception in the early 70s proves that Johnny was capable of stretching his bag, and not just a play-it-safe interpreter of syrupy ballads. Like a lot of the jazz recordings on Perception at the time (by the ... LP, Vinyl record album
