Saturday Date

LP (Item 928817) Tops, 1960s — Condition: Very Good-

(Cover has some wear with tape along all seams and a cutout hole in the corner.)

Very Good - (minus)

  • Vinyl may be dirty, and can lack a fair amount of luster.
  • Vinyl can have a number of marks, either in clusters or smaller amounts, but deeper.
  • This is the kind of record that you'd buy to play, but not because it looked that great. Still, the flaws should be mostly cosmetic, with nothing too deep that would ruin the overall record.
  • Examples include a record that has been kept for a while in a cover without the paper sleeve, or heavily played by a previous owner and has some marks across the surface. The record should play okay, though probably with surface noise.

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.

Stanley Turrentine

Hustlin'
Blue Note, 1964. Good+
One of Stanley Turrentine's few organ-based sessions for Blue Note – recorded in the company of his wife Shirley Scott, a real cooker on the Hammond who holds it down masterfully here – and great band that's filled out by Kenny Burrell on guitar, Bob Cranshaw on bass and Otis Finch on ...

Charles Earland

Freakin' Off
Big Chance, Late 60s. Good+
A rare live set from Charles Earland – recorded pre-Prestige, and probably illegally, by Paul Winley. The sound of the set has plenty of crowd noise up front – not necessarily from bad recording, but from an approach that seems to create this "live lounge" kind of feel, one ...

Kenny Cox

Multidirection
Blue Note, 1970. Good+
Tremendous work from this lesser-known combo from Detroit – a session of work that builds strongly on the colors and changes explored by Miles Davis earlier in the 60s, but which takes things off into a whole new direction! (A Multidirection?) The horns on the record have incredible ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dizzy Gillespie

School Days
Regent/Savoy, 1951. Good+
A bebop classic from Dizzy Gillespie – a full album comprised of some famous 78s recorded for the Savoy label at the start of the 50s – the kind of hard-grooving material that made Diz a fan favorite right from the start! There's some nice use of vocals in the mix – not just from ... LP, Vinyl record album
Metro, 1958. Good+
A strangely split LP, but important for the way that it captures Rollins during that pivotal year of 1958. Like some of his other sides from the time, this LP features Sonny with only bass and drums behind him – blowing free, but quite tightly, with no sloppiness at all. Tracks include ... LP, Vinyl record album

Shirley Scott

Great Scott!! (Prestige)
Prestige, Early 60s. Good+
A mellow trio session – Shirley on organ, George Duvivier on bass, and Art Edgehill on drums – done in the moody, loungey style of most of Shirley's work as a leader for Prestige. There's nothing here that's going to hit you over the head, but the album does have a really solid feel ... LP, Vinyl record album

Clifford Brown & Max Roach

Brown & Roach Incorporated
EmArcy, 1955. Good+
Quite possibly THE key example of the magic of Clifford Brown and Max Roach on record – a brilliant studio session that really has the group "incorporating" their sound – forging a bold musical statement that would forever leave its imprint on jazz for years to come! The ... LP, Vinyl record album
Contemporary, 1955. Good+
Given Barney's touch on the guitar, you can bet that a record like this hardly could claim "not to swing" – and the session's a tight groover done in a way that clearly marks Kessel as one of the best guitar talents of his generation! The recording quality of the album is wonderful ... LP, Vinyl record album
Mercury, Early 50s. Good+
A hard-wailing jam session from the original JATP series – a blistering recording of the 1947 Midnight Concert at Carnegie Hall, featuring players that include Howard McGhee, Illinois Jacquet, Bill Harris, Flip Philips, Hank Jones, Ray Brown and Jo Jones. 2 tracks, each a side long: "I ...

People, 1973. Good+
An incredible album – a landmark piece of funk that nobody should be without, funk fan or not! The album is the second to feature James Brown's famous backing combo of the early 70s – and unlike their first one, which was really more of a collection of singles, this album has the group ...

LTG Exchange

Susie Heartbreaker
RCA, 1975. Good+
A pretty strange little album from LTG Exchange – a blend of Latin, funk, and soul – wrapped up in a comic-stripped cover that pushes the album as sort of a "black rock operetta"! The feel here is different than the group's earlier work – a bit more disco oriented, but ... LP, Vinyl record album
