JOHN DUMMER’S OOBLEEDOOBLEE BAND Oobleedooblee Jubilee. Rare 1973 UK first issue 9-track LP on the small ‘swirl’ Vertigo label, complete with ‘swirl’ inner, picture sleeve. The sleeve minimal shelfwear with just a tiny bit of foxing & the vinyl remains near ‘as new’ with little sign of play. A superb copy of this very tough John Dummer Vertigo press to find!

THE JOHN DUMMER BLUES BAND Blue. Rare 1972 fir…

THE JOHN DUMMER BLUES BAND Blue. Rare 1972 first UK issue 7-track vinyl LP on the Vertigo ‘swirl’ label, with machine stamped matrices reading 1Y//1>420 & 2Y//1>420, housed in a special die-cut gatefold matte sleeve designed by Roger Dean & complete with a ‘swirl’ die-cut inner.

The sleeve must be one of the toughest Roger Dean covers to find if you’re looking for original cover art by this great designer. A very subtle but effective blue title layout on an all over red, with die-cut spray stencil effect, the sleeve is a decent VG/VG- copy. The die-cut area is very delicate & thin but intact & secure but does dispplay some minor wear.
There is some corner creasing & edge scuffing, with a couple of nicks on the back, all text is legible & most of the wear can be forgiveable considering it was never laminated. It also comes complete with the ‘swirl’ die-cut inner.

The labels are the first press design & the heavyweight vinyl appears clean. There are some spindle marks by the centre hole to indicate some turntable action & no blemishes to the print. A past owner has written their name neatly on both labels

On close inspection we would grade the vinyl VG+/EX-. There are a handful of very faint paper scuffs & the odd mild hairline, none of which effects play & sound quality remains exceptional. By no means mint, this is an agreeable copy of one of the rarest Vertigo titles out there.

SAVOY BROWN Blue Matter. Scarce 1969 UK 8-track stereo vinyl LP on the unboxed Decca label, front laminated picture sleeve with pinched spine, liner notes on the reverse by producer Mike Vernon & die-cut mono/stereo identifier hole on the reverse and with blue-for-stereo poly-lined inner. The sleeve displays only light wear with some laminate lift along the spine whilst the non-laminated back looks really clean has has just light signs of age. The labels have just a couple of light marks around the spindle hole to show only light signs of play, and the vinyl is excellent with just light signs of play. A really nice example.

Buddy Guy & Junior Wells Play The Blues (1972)

Coffee, Smoke, Vinyl
I’ve had this album stuck in my head for about a week now, decades-long earworms are buried deep within the grooves. Finally busting my lp out for a few Sunday spins. Plural, it always goes that way. It’s an unlikely choice but I probably play “Buddy Guy & Junior Wells Play The Blues” more often than any other blues record in the archive. I first bought the cd in the 90′s, during my full-on dig into all things 70s funk related.  Even with a tinier cd jacket, you can’t miss those collars.  This record needs a reissue, I wish more of you had it so we could talk about just how awesome it is.  FUNKY!

BILLIE HOLIDAY Lady In Satin. 70s US issue of the 1958 11-track stereo LP, on the red Columbia label with yellow perimeter lettering, pasted picture sleeve. The sleeve shows light wear with a small area of discolouration to the bottom corner,whilst the vinyl has light cosmetic sheen due to a reaction to the inner, which has little or no impact on play.

PLUTO Pluto. Rare 1971 UK 10-track LP on the lilac Dawn label and pressed on Red Translucent Vinyl, visable when held to the light. The debut and only album from the rock group, heavily influenced by the blues and tinged with progressive rock. The fully laminated picture sleeve displays some general wear with some laminate lift along the spine and a couple of creases to the laminate, the labels have just a couple of spindle marks whilst the vinyl remains very clean with minimal signs of play. An outstanding example of this very hard to find pressing.

Coffee, Smoke, Muddy. 
Two spins.  This was a most enjoyable way to spend a Saturday morning.  That little note booklet that comes with each VMP Classics release is pure pleasure; this one may be the best one of all.  Very comprehensive, well researched and well written. The words paired perfectly with the music, fully immersing the listener by providing context and knowledge.  Vinyl Experience: 9.7/10

The music? It’s Muddy Waters. Listen for yourselves; your opinion matters most.
