Mainly Delaney

LP (Item 927887) Mercury, Late 50s — Condition: Very Good+

An American set from British drumme Eric Delaney – with titles that include "Ripe Cherry Rock", "Truckin", "Oranges & Lemons", "Say Si Si", and "Rock & Roll King Cole".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(NOTE: vinyl is great, but cover has water staining on the bottom half – a bit of wrinkling on the front.)

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight 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.

Jimmy Smith

It's Necessary
Mercury, 1977. Very Good
One of Jimmy's last albums for a major label in the 70s – a real back-to-basics set that was recorded live at the Jimmy Smith Supper Club in LA – the "home of fried cornbread and live jazz", and a venue that we certainly wish we could have visited! Jimmy's working here with ... LP, Vinyl record album

Philly Joe Jones

Drums Night
Mercury (Japan), 1977. Near Mint-
A really unusual performance for this Japanese-only album – one in which Philly Joe Jones is joined by two other drummers, Al Foster and Billy Hart – in a lineup that also includes Atlee Chapman on trombone, Charles Bowen on tenor and soprano, Brian Smith on bass, and Walter Davis Jr on ... LP, Vinyl record album

Billy Taylor

Impromptu
Mercury, 1962. Near Mint-
One of Billy Taylor's greatest albums – far more than his usual easy-handed soul jazz, and much more of a modernist-informed outing, with one of the hippest groups to ever back Taylor on record! The rhythm's by Bob Cranshaw and Walter Perkins of the MJT+3 – and the group's augmented by ... LP, Vinyl record album
Mercury/Trip, 1957/1958. Near Mint-
A killer batch of hardbop tracks – no-nonsense, straight-ahead, and with all the fire of Roach's work with Clifford Brown! The set was recorded a few years after the untimely death of the Brown/Roach group – and although the album's got "Charlie Parker" in the title, there's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Roland Kirk

We Free Kings
Mercury, 1961. Near Mint-
One of Roland Kirk's classic early recordings for Mercury, and the kind of stuff that has him mixing his wild reed playing with more traditional hardbop structures. Most of the tracks are quartet sides, with piano, bass, and drums backing Kirk up – but the real focus is on Kirks solos, which ... LP, Vinyl record album
Mercury (Japan), Late 40s/1950s/1960s. Very Good+ 4LPs
A killer collection of previously-unissued jazz from Mercury Records – with material by Roland Kirk, Ben Webster, Dinah Washington, Bob James, Dizzy Gillespie, Art Farmer, Cannonball Adderley, and others! LP, Vinyl record album

Franz Loffler & Pierre Favre

300 Year Old Goodies All Jazzed Up
Mercury, Mid 60s. Near Mint-
One of those groovy jazz meets classical projects from the French scene of the 60s – featuring guitar from Loffler and drums from Pierre Favre! LP, Vinyl record album
Mercury, 1959. Near Mint-
One of the coolest Mercury albums ever from Pete Rugolo – partly for the cover, but also for the great tunes that include "Stereo Space Man", "In A Modal Tone", and "Ballade For Drums"! LP, Vinyl record album

Mercury/Trip, Early 60s. Near Mint-
A great record – and one that's a lot more unified than the title might make you think!
