Webster's Dictionary

LP (Item 927421) Philips (UK), 1970 — Condition: Near Mint-

A very cool late album from tenor giant Ben Webster – one that features arrangements by the excellent Stan Tracey and production by reedman Pete King – with a British rhythm section that features Stan Tracey on piano, Dave Green on bass, and Tony Crombie on drums! The group also features vibes from Alan Branscombe and clarinet from Tony Coe – and as with Webster in these later years, there's a wonderful sense of tone that dominates the record – echoes of earlier years at points, but a new humanity that creeps in and really grabs us – a deeply personal style that sparkles especially strongly on the ballads, and even hits a few more modern moments at points. Tracks include "Come Sunday", "Old Folks", "That's All", "For All We Know", "Shadow Of Your Smile", and "Where Are You".  © 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.
