Gipsy Songs

LP (Item 106571) Qualiton (Hungary), 1980 — Condition: Near Mint-

(Cover has light wear.)

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.

Ghetto Blaster

Blackframe (France), 1984. Near Mint-
A lost bit of Afro Funk from 80s Paris – a lot better and rootsier than you'd think from a name like Ghetto Blaster! The record mixes together older styles of African Funk with some of the newer grooves coming out at the time – shifting the focus from a strict emphasis on rhythmic ... LP, Vinyl record album

Marius Cultier

Ouelele Souskai
Fiesta/Ascensionale (Italy), 1975. Near Mint-
Maybe the funkiest album ever from Marius Cultier – and definitely one of the records that perfectly shows off his wonderful post-colonial blend of sounds! There's bits of funk from both sides of the Atlantic going on here – roots in both Africa and the Caribbean, but fused through ... LP, Vinyl record album
Island, Mid 70s. Near Mint-
One of our favorite albums ever from the legendary Paco De Lucia – and a set that really has the guitarist coming into his own – stepping past even his rich flamenco roots, and coming up with a new style that's practically a genre unto itself! Paco's sense of imagination here is ... LP, Vinyl record album

Miriam Makeba

Miriam Makeba In Concert
Reprise, Late 60s. Sealed
A pretty great set – a bit folksier than most of Makeba's other work for Reprise, but recorded with a pretty lively groove on many numbers, a lot more interesting than some of Makeba's early work in the folk vein. The record includes a seven minute version of "A Piece Of Ground", a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Muller, Early 70s. Near Mint-
Hard to categorize this group from Chicago – but the album's got some pretty unusual rhythms! The combo looks to be a funky one – but they play with distinct Caribbean and African influences in the bass and drum parts, and especially in the guitar, which jangles back and forth across ...

Epic, 1969. Near Mint-
The debut album from Dan Hicks & His Hot Licks – a brilliant little set, and quite possibly the truest realization of his subtle acoustic genius! The sound here is free from cliches that later got in the way with Hicks – and the album's a refreshing return to roots, but without any ... LP, Vinyl record album
Cultures Of Soul, Late 70s/Early 80s. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
The sound of disco left no corner of the world untouched in the late 70s – and the hipper side of the dancefloor mode had an especially strong impact down in the Caribbean! Of course, that's maybe not as much of a surprise – when you consider how much back/forth action was going on ... LP, Vinyl record album
