Cycle

LP (Item 100545) Don Giovanni, 2020 — Condition: Near Mint-
2LP
Also available
Mourning A BLKstar — Cycle (yellow vinyl pressing) ... LP 30.99

A fantastic album from Mourning A BLKstar – even more powerful than their set dedicated to Eric Garner, and a batch of material that really gets at the righteous energy of this Cleveland combo! The group see themselves as part of the James Baldwin tradition of the artist bearing witness – and their genre-bending, gender non-confirming style really pushes forward the energy of underground soul music – as they worked together in an empty storefront in Cleveland to craft this beautiful cycle of songs initial sketches they all fleshed out together – in a mix of shifting vocal leads, heavy drums, dark guitar lines, and proud horn parts. Titles include "Sense Of An Ending", "Something JD Said", "Been Around", "Devil Get Behind Me", "Whom The Bell Tolls", "The Wants", "Deluze (Solange say rmx)", "So Young So", "The Box", and "4 Days".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Pressed on clear vinyl. Includes the insert.)

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.

Kelis

Kaleidoscope
Virgin, 1999. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
At the time of this album's original release, the Neptunes had yet to take over the world, so it barely saw the light of day. Combining Chad & Pharrel's tight beats and infectious ghettofied songcraft with Kelis' sweet vocals, we can't really tell what the folks at the label were thinking, as ... LP, Vinyl record album

Esperanza Spalding

Radio Music Society
Telarc, 2012. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
Maybe the greatest record so far from the lovely Esperanza Spalding – a set that has her moving farther from jazz, into a wonderfully warm style of soul music overall! The mix of modes is exquisite – a blend of Spalding's jazz-trained vocals with some beautiful arrangements that ... LP, Vinyl record album
Red Star/Sony, 2001. Near Mint- 2LP
A collection of tracks put together by the folks at Heineken's Red Star Foundation – a program that's designed to support "urban influence music" (whatever that means!) The upshot of the package is that it's a great set of underground soul grooves – perhaps not as cutting ... LP, Vinyl record album

Great Extreme
Barry & The Fountains, 2020. Sealed
Contemporary deep soul from Barry Jean Fontenot – a singer who should be destined to be huge, given the power and presence he has on this six track release!

Talk Memory
Innovative Leisure, 2021. Sealed 2LP Gatefold
A really different sort of record from Badbadnotgood – and we mean that in the best way possible, as the group are really maturing and opening up their sound! The core blend of funk and jazz elements is still at play on the record – but there's also a more expansive vibe too, one that ... LP, Vinyl record album

Flying Lotus

Flamagra
Warp, 2019. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
Fantastic sounds from Flying Lotus – an artist who just keeps on pushing past any conventional expectations, to a point where his music is almost a genre unto itself! The record's got this very tripped-out sort of vibe – very much in keeping with the image on the cover – and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jake Breaks

Breaksy
Wide Hive, 2021. Near Mint-
A great little record that really goes back to the early days of the Wide Hive label – the time when the company emerged as a hotbed of Cali funk, and was less of the jazz imprint it is today! Jake delivers plenty of breaks here on drums – and also turns in a bit of turntable work too ... LP, Vinyl record album
