Internal Combustion

LP (Item 938182) CMP (Germany), 1985 — Condition: Near Mint-
Gatefold

...

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.

Bob James

Two
CTI, 1975. Very Good+ Gatefold
A monster – and quite possibly one of the greatest Fender Rhodes albums of all time! Bob James is really at the height of his powers here – stepping out with a sound that's a lot smoother than some of his earlier work, yet in a groove that's never too slick or too overproduced – ...

Rufus Harley

Tribute To Courage
Atlantic, 1968. Very Good+
Brilliant work by one of the most unusual jazz talents of the 60s! Rufus Harley's best known for his use of bagpipes in jazz music – a re-cooption of the instrument from Scottish styles, taking it back to its roots in northern Africa. A number of Harley's other albums from the time are a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Colpix, Early 60s. Very Good+
A great chapter in 60s bossa jazz – Zoot Sims "answer" to Stan Getz's bossa work on Verve – recorded in a similar jazz-meets-bossa style, with some great guitar work by Jim Hall! Zoot's solos are a bit tighter and not as laidback as Stan's – giving a more jazz-based ... LP, Vinyl record album

Tony Scott

Touch Of Tony Scott
RCA, 1956. Very Good+
Early work from reedman Tony Scott – recorded in the years when he was much more of a regular on the New York scene – before he started working in trippier styles for the 60s! The album features Scott in a host of different settings – from quartet, to tentet, to orchestra ... LP, Vinyl record album

Charles Lloyd

Geeta
A&M, 1973. Very Good+
Very spiritual stuff, as Lloyd continues his trippy progression into the 70s – stepping off of styles and themes initially expressed on his 60s albums, and working them into a sound that's even more compelling to the FM underground crowd! The work here borrows heavily from Indian and eastern ... LP, Vinyl record album
Columbia, Late 60s. Very Good+
Heavy soul from the Roy Meriwether Trio – picking up at a place where the Ramsey Lewis trio first began, and taking things to a very soulful extension! The tunes are straightforward soul jazz, played with a heck of a lot of fire in the rhythms – thanks to bassist Isaas Sloan and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Art Farmer, Charlie Shavers, Emmet Berry, et al

Trumpets All Out (Savoy)
Savoy, Mid 50s. Very Good+
As you might guess from the title, the album's an all-trumpet affair, one that features 5 different players on the instrument – Art Farmer, Emmet Berry, Charlie Shavers, Ernie Royal, and Harold Baker – supported by spare rhythm from the trio of Don Abney on piano, Wendell Marshall on ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jay McShann

Big Apple Bash
Atlantic, 1979. Very Good+
A much groovier record than you might expect – hardly the older-styled jazz session normally associated with Jay McShann, and more of a wide-ranging session that brings in some great contemporary touches! The album's something of a celebration for Jay – and it features wonderful guest ... LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny Guitar Watson

Ain't That A Bitch
DJM, 1976. Very Good+
Maybe the best album that Johnny Watson cut during his DJM years – a totally tight, totally soulful set that avoids any fake funk cliches! The record's got some wonderful trippy numbers – cut in that slow g-funky mode that was Johnny's huge legacy to the west coast scene – best ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jackson 5

Dancing Machine
Motown, 1974. Very Good+
Magnificent material from the Jackson 5 – a set that really has them moving into a whole new mature style in their music – taking on bigger themes and wider grooves, and really finding a fresh new voice in the process! There's a bit of funk in the mix, a bit of early club, and some ... LP, Vinyl record album
