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"  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.
