Sounds Of The City (Suoni Di Una Citta)

LP (Item 122668) Finders Keepers (UK), 1972 — Condition: Near Mint-
Also available
Maria Teresa Luciani — Sounds Of The City (Suoni Di Una Citta) ... LP 20.99
An amazing sonic portrait of the modern city – one created on the early 70s Italian scene, but lost to the shifting sands of time, due to its release as a sound library-only album! We've heard Maria Teresa Luciani on a few other records of this nature – but this one may well be her greatest – music that's beyond categorization in the way it presents its subject – not really jazz or soundtrack styles at all, but also not some sort of too-modern compositional idiom either. Instead, the whole thing seems to make some sort of honest, organic sense – as it presents differing aspects of the city, both residential and commercial, public and private – often with a sense of darkness in the immediate approach, but also with a current of hope at times too. Titles include "Public Gardens", "Modern Residential Complex", "Supermarket", "Poor Neighborhoods", "Power Station", "Traffic", and "International Airport".  © 1996-2023, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

Transvitaexpress (smoke colored vinyl pressing)
Soave (Italy), 1974. Sealed
A really wild bit of sound library work from this Italian duo – a set that almost feels more like an experimental radio art piece than the usual sorts of records from the scene – given the advanced use of electronics, and the mixture of spoken parts with very offbeat sounds! Most of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Brian Eno

Discreet Music
Obscure, 1975. Very Good
A modern minimalist watershed – and maybe one of the first indications that Brian Eno was moving onto higher ideas in his music!
