LARRY YOUNG Into Something (Very rare 1964 US 5-track mono deep groove LP on the New York Blue Note label with VAN GELDER & ‘ear’ etched into the runout grooves on both sides, pasted picture sleeve. Young’s debut for Blue Note is a hard-bop delight featuring Grant Green, Elvin Jones and Sam Rivers on tenor saxophone.The sleeve shows some edge scuffing, discolouration to the reverse and a previous owners name written discreetly in the reverse top left hand corner, however, it is free of rips/tears and al text is clearly legible. The vinyl shows some faint hairlines and scuffs [nothing excessive] and grades a strong VG – play testing reveals no great loss in fidelity. With mint copies regualrly topping the £300 mark, here’s your chance to pick up a more than acceptable play copy at an advantageous price BLP4187).
THE SENSATIONAL GUITARS OF DAN & DALE Batman & Robin (Sealed 1966 US 12-track mono LP released during the height of the Batman craze but secretly featuring members of Sun Ra’s Arkestra & The Blues Project! Comes housed in a fantastic full colour cartoon picture sleeve with no deletion cuts. This collector’s copy remains sealed & unopened over half a century on, the vinyl remains mint & unplayed).
