Music With The Big Beat (2x7")

7-inch (Item 984046) MGM, 1955 — Condition: Very Good+
2x7" Gatefold (pic cover)

Sam "The Man" Taylor at his best – blowing hard-edged tenor on a bunch of hip 50s instrumentals! The tunes are all in an R&B mode, but Sam's solos also have a fair bit of jazz expression too – much more so than you might expect for the session, which was supervised by Alan Freed. Titles include "Look Out", "The Big Beat", "Oo, Wee", "Ride, Sammy, Ride", "Sam's Blues", "Let's Ball", "Fish Roll", and "The Boss Is Home".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Sleeve has some surface wear, aging, gloss peel at the top right corner.)

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.

People, 1972. Very Good+
An excellent hard-to-find track by Lyn Collins! "Me & My Baby" has a wonderful gospelly intro, similar to "Message to the Soul Sisters", which then leaps into a great groove with a nice hard soul hook! The flip has sort of a nice Muscle Shoals-ish sound, with some good ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Brighter Side Of Darkness

Love Jones/I'm The Guy
20th Century, 1972. Very Good
A killer bit of harmony soul – one of the greatest of the genre from the 70s! Brighter Side Of Darkness are barely remembered these days – but "Love Jones" is one of those cuts that will go on forever – a sweetly tripped out number with incredibly baroque production, ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Curtom, Early 70s. Very Good+
Two classics from Curtis' first solo album! "Hell Below" is here in a shorter single version – leaving off the intro, and beginning smack in the middle of the tight wah wah groove. "Makings Of You" is a mellow track with a floating and baroque quality – strings and ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
