Music For Playboys To Play By

LP (Item 927334) Urania, 1957 — Condition: Very Good

(Green label pressing with deep groove. NOTE – Cover is stained on the bottom half, with a bit of stuck-on paper on front, and flaky delamination on back.)

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.

Sextant
Columbia, 1973. Near Mint-
An incredible record – and virtually the blueprint for countless other keyboard records to come!

Savoy, 1960/1978. Near Mint-
Killer stuff from Booker Ervin – and one of his first sessions as a leader!

Quincy Jones

Mellow Madness
A&M, 1973. Near Mint-
A really great, oft-overlooked album from the best period of Quincy Jones! This album is quite possibly Quincy's most farthest-reaching – as he works in an array of styles that really shows his growing genius in the studio – not just jazz and soundtrack modes, but more soul-based ones, ...

Larry Young

Unity
Blue Note, Mid 60s. Near Mint-
A brilliant album that would forever change the way the organ was used in jazz!

One of our favorite Thelonious Monk albums ever – a bare bones, no nonsense session that's filled with great work from tenorist Charlie Rouse!

Columbia, 1963. Very Good
A unique little album from Thelonious Monk – an early 60s live date that features a really cooking big band, plus some solo and quartet tracks as well!

David Matthews

Dune
CTI, 1977. Very Good-
One of the coolest, grooviest albums we've ever heard from arranger David Matthews – a set that draws inspiration from Frank Herbert's Dune, and sends Dave out into space with a whole bunch of sci fi-tinged funky numbers! Matthews has already had plenty of CTI arranging experience by the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Mark Soskin

Rhythm Vision
Prestige, 1980. Sealed
One of the last of the funky sessions recorded for Prestige in the 70's, and a good batch of smooth fusion grooves recorded by keyboardist Mark Soskin, with Bennie Maupin on reeds, Oscar Brashear on trumpet, and Harvey Mason on drums. The album's got a smooth west coast fusion feel to it – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bobbi Humphrey

Freestyle
Epic, 1978. Very Good
Some of Bobbi Humphrey's greatest work of the post-Blue Note years – an album that's filled with soulful fusion tunes throughout, all with a great focus on her funky flute!

Sing A Song With Riddle
Capitol, Late 50s. Very Good Gatefold
Karaoke old school style. Kind of like a Jamie Aebersold album, with a full book of music and lyrics, so that you can play or sing along to Nelson Riddle's orchestrations. Pretend you're Sinatra, Nat Cole, Judy Garland or Dinah Shore on numbers like "Darn That Dream", "Day In, Day ... LP, Vinyl record album
