Columbia PC 32965
Welcome! This auction is for an original sealed copy of Herbie Hancock's 1974 lp "Thrust." This copy is in beautiful condition all around. This is Herbie's follow up to his acclaimed "headhunters" album. In my opinion, this is an even stronger record than headhunters. This is a near perfect first pressing of this classic title. This is the original cover. The art was soon changed to include a border and different lettering. There are no cut out marks and there are breathe holes in the shrink.
I am starting this auction at the price of $29.99. If you want a near perfect sealed copy of this classic, this is it.
If you have any questions, please let me know. Happy Bidding!
Vinyl Condition: Sealed
Jacket Condition: NM- (original cover art without border / a couple of creases)
This album was released by Columbia Records in 1974. Here is the 4.5 star review from Allmusic.com
The follow-up to the breakthrough Headhunters album was virtually as good as its wildly successful predecessor: an earthy, funky, yet often harmonically and rhythmically sophisticated tour de force. There is only one change in the Headhunters lineup -- swapping drummer Harvey Mason for Mike Clark -- and the switch results in grooves that are even more complex. Hancock continues to reach into the rapidly changing high-tech world for new sounds, most notably the metallic sheen of the then-new ARP string synthesizer which was already becoming a staple item on pop and jazz-rock records. Again, there are only four long tracks, three of which ("Palm Grease," "Actual Proof," "Spank-A-Lee") concentrate on the funk, with plenty of Hancock's wah-wah clavinet, synthesizer textures and effects, and electric piano ruminations that still venture beyond the outer limits of post-bop. The change-of-pace is one of Hancock's loveliest electric pieces, "Butterfly," a match for any tune he's written before or since, with shimmering synth textures and Bennie Maupin soaring on soprano (Hancock would re-record it 20 years later on Dis Is Da Drum, but this is the one to hear). This supertight jazz-funk quintet album still sounds invigorating a quarter of a century later.
Clark, Hancock, Jackson
