Silver Morning

LP (Item 9798) Warner, 1974 — Condition: Very Good+

Kenny Rankin at the height of his powers – working in an amazing blend of styles that includes bits of folk, jazz, and bossa – all wrapped together with a really warm feel overall! The album's got a somewhat full feel – but like Kenny's best work on his debut, there's a really personal quality that shines through beautifully – a sense of intimacy even amidst some of the larger backings, one that really keeps a focus on Rankin's voice and guitar. Jimmy Haskell did the arrangements – and his talents here are worthy of note as much as Kenny's – and guests on the session include Deniece Williams and Jim Gilstrap on backing vocals, plus King Errison on percussion. Titles include Rankin's classics "Haven't We Met" and "Name Of Love", a wonderful remake of "Berimbau", and the titles "Blackbird", "People Get Ready", "Catfish", and "Penny Lane"  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has an unglued seam and light wear.)

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.

Little David, 1977. Near Mint-
A simple title, but a classic album – arguably one of Kenny Rankin's biggest hits of the 70s, but every bit as great as his lesser-known work!

Muse, 1972. Very Good-
One of Mark Murphy's earliest records for Muse, and an essential release in his developing style in the 70's. Sweet warm and swinging jazz vocals, with accompaniment by a tight group that includes the Brecker Brothers, Ron Carter, and Pat Rebillot. The set features two Murphy originals, "Saus ...

Jon Hendricks

Fast Livin' Blues
Columbia, 1962. Near Mint-
One of the rare few albums that Jon Hendricks cut on his own during the early 60s, and a very tasty batch of jazz vocal tracks recorded with backing by Pony Poindexter, Gildo Mahones, Ike Isaacs, and other unsung early 60s soul jazz greats. Hendricks is hitting a style here that adds some 50s ... LP, Vinyl record album
Columbia, Early 60s. Near Mint-
An 80s repackaging of the excellent Flying High album – easily the group's best album by far, and unfortunately, too often the toughest one to find!

Regent/Savoy, Early 50s. Near Mint-
Incredible early work from Joe Williams – harder, rawer, and spookier than any of his more famous sides from the late 50s and 1960s! The album's got a style that's almost R&B in parts – and features Joe effortlessly swinging his way through a set list that includes "It's ... LP, Vinyl record album
Philips, Mid/Late 60s. Near Mint-
Righteous and soulful! The work that Nina Simone did at Philips is among some of her best work ever – and this set features 10 great cuts that aren't always that easy to find on wax. Includes the anthemic feminist classic "Four Women", the slightly-funky "Mississippi ... LP, Vinyl record album
