Billy Boy

LP (Item 925723) Paddle Wheel (Japan), 1986 — Condition: Near Mint-

An unusual Japanese-only set from pianist David Matthews – with Michael Moore on bass and Dave Weckl on drums!  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Includes insert.)

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.

Bobby Hutcherson

Natural Illusions
Blue Note, 1972. Near Mint-
Vibes and orchestrations – a combination that makes for one of the coolest Bobby Hutcherson albums of the 70s – a really magical set that expands the sound of Bobby's work in ways we wouldn't have expected!

Atlantic, 1973. Near Mint- Gatefold
One of Rahsaan Roland Kirk's last truly fantastic albums – a set that still has all the amazingly messed-up qualities of his best late 60s work – delivered with the honest heart and sense of soul that always make us love his music! The set was recorded for Atlantic in the early 70s, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Revolutionary Ensemble

People's Republic
A&M, 1976. Near Mint- Gatefold

Sam Rivers

Waves
Tomato, 1978/1989. Near Mint-
Fairly loft-oriented jazz session from Sam Rivers – but with a more focused approach than you might initially imagine.

Robin Kenyatta

Nomusa
Muse, 1975. Near Mint-
An early Muse session by Robin Kenyatta – and a record that's probably one of his best of the 70s. Kenyatta plays with a very nice group that includes Dom Salvador on piano and organ, Stafford James on bass, and Joe Chambers on drums – and the tracks are nice and long, with a good ...

Sadao Watanabe

Round Trip
Vanguard, 1970. Near Mint-
A pivotal record in the career of this brilliant Japanese saxophonist – a set recorded in New York with a trio players from the American scene – done in a style that's even more freewheeling than most of Sadao Watanabe's previous work! Watanabe had always worked with unusual tones and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Celia & Johnny
Vaya, 1974. Very Good+
One of the many great recordings that Celia and Johnny cut together during the 70s – in a really great combination that had her soulful vocals giving a new injection of energy to the Pacheco sound of the time! The result was a great blend of new styles and respectful traditionalism – ... LP, Vinyl record album
