Rip & Run

LP (Item 917853) Old Town/Ace (UK), Late 50s — Condition: Near Mint-

One of the more obscure artists to record for the Old Town label – mostly known for its group soul and rock – the excellent Bob Gaddy, a bluesy singer and pianist! This might be the only full collection we've seen of Bob's work – nicely done by Ace Records.  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

Maria Muldaur
Warner, 1973. Near Mint- Gatefold
A landmark record from Maria Muldaur – quite different than the rougher folsky work she cut in the 60s – and done with a really warm studio sound that's pure 70s all the way through!

Buddah issue of some material that Joe recorded earlier that was released on the Vee Jay label before his big Sound Stage 7 hits. If you don't know the material, it's got a nice raw sound, and more of a southern soul feel than his later work (although that was pretty darn good, too). The tracks ... LP, Vinyl record album
