Jukebox Jam 2 – Blues & Rhythm Revue

LP (Item 984122) Jazzman (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s — Condition: Near Mint-

A sensational sequel to one of the greatest compilations of rare rhythm & blues we've seen from the deep diggin' Jazzman label – one that goes even deeper than the first! A good deal of these juke box treasures are from the mid 50s to early 60s – all of 'em ones that have been overlooked since way back in the day, having escaped the attention of all but the most devoted collectors for decades! Jumping R&B is the core sound here, but this volume is actually a more diverse batch than its predecessor – with some grittier proto-rock R&B, some more swinging jazz numbers, and a bit of popcorn soul as well – all of 'em killer! Titles include "Lament" by Mamie Perry, "If You Ain't Got No Bread", "Tears Baby" by Johnny West, "Rock A While" by Dewey Guy & The Fabulous Six, "Cat Music" by Dave Bartholomew, "I Done Done It" by Amos Milburn, "Swingin'" by Saunders King., "Big Game Hunter" by Steve Gibson The Red Caps, "Cleopatra" by The Mark VI, "I'll Get You, Too" by Billy Emerson, "That Ain' The Way To Do It" by Big Sis Andrews, "I'll Walk A Mile" by Bob Marriott & The Continentals, and "It Only Hurts A Little While" by Little Willie John.  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

The Savoy jazz catalog gets the remix tradition – following nicely in the mode of similar projects on Verve or Blue Note!

Maxayn
Capricorn, 1972. Very Good+ Gatefold
The debut album from Maxayn – a funky female talent who deserves to be mentioned in the same territory as Betty Davis and Yvonne Fair!

Sweet Chicago soul from the mid 70s – the one and only album from Mystique, one of the more mysterious groups on the Curtom label at the time!

Impulse, 1967. Very Good+ Gatefold
A brilliant album of Latiny grooves from Diz!

Houston Person

Blue Odyssey
Prestige, 1968. Very Good+
An excellent Houston Person set from the late 60s – and a record that's unlike any other that he did at the time! The groove here is a bit less funky, and a bit more conceptual – kind of a soaring vibe that's still quite soulful, but in less of the stock soul jazz mode that Person was ... LP, Vinyl record album

Still Bill
Sussex, 1972. Very Good Gatefold
Bill Withers' second album – even more wonderful than the first!

A monster – and quite possibly one of the greatest Fender Rhodes albums of all time!
