THE TONY KINSEY QUINTET A 'Jazz At The Flamingo' Session

Incredibly rare 1957 UK 6-track mono live LP, recorded in London on May 16th that year in front of an appreciative & enthusiastic audience. The quintet at the time also featured Joe Harriot on Alto, Bob Efford on Tenor, Bill Le Sage on Piano & Vibes and Pete Blannin on Bass. Despite the flimsy constuction, the sleeve on this copy remains complete & free from major splits, although it has obviously seen better days. As is commonwith these flimsy fifties sleeves, the laminate has shrunk over time, resulting in some curl at the opening, with several areas scuffed & missing laminate. That said, with the exception of a small missing segment of the rear top scalloped flipback, the sleeve has remained clearly readable with just a little edge scuffing & a bit of general shelfwear to show for the past fifty five years. The vinyl is amazing & is a true testament to the quality of the pressing in that, despite some light surface marks, it plays through without skipping, burring or any sonic distortion. There is one scratch on side two which does make a 'click' during side two tracks two & three, but apart from that historic mishap the side plays through with the 553368same high fidelity as side one. All in all a very respectable & playable copy of this great album at a fraction of the price of a 'mint' copy, so if you want to play it rather than frame it, this is a serious bargain LK4207

VARIOUS-TRANSPORT Steam On The Lickey Incline

Fabulous…1983 UK 6-track LP featuring the sounds of team locomotives at work on the Lickey Incline in the Summer of 1959. The record includes recordings of a Black Five, a Devonian, a Jubilee, a 4.F, Class 5s, a Crab, a 2.P & a 9.F, all in fantastic detail, issued as part of the very collectable 'Sounds Of The Steam Age' series, picture sleeve with extensive liner notes. The sleeve shows just a little light shelfwear & the vinyl is flawless ATR7026
