Hugh Masekela's Next Album

LP (Item 12556) MGM, Late 60s — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


One of Hugh's more poppy efforts, but still a nice batch of instrumentals with a good Afro soul groove to them, and the jaunty trumpet sound that was Hugh's stock in trade at the time. Tracks include "Actin' Like A Fool", "If I Needed Someone", "Sounds Of Silence", "Along Comes Mary", "It's Not Unusual", and "From Me To You".  © 1996-2017, Dusty Groove, Inc.

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.

Used Vinyl Grades

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, please note that all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:

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.

Colonial Man
Casablanca, 1976. Very Good+
A later album from Hugh Masekela – but still plenty darn hip, way more so than most of the other artists on the Casablanca label at the time! Hugh's South African groove is still very firmly in place here – mixed with a slightly warmer LA soul sound, but expanded with loads of great ... LP, Vinyl record album
Verve, Late 60s. Very Good+ Gatefold
Beautiful work from reed player Tony Scott – recorded during a time when he was doing a lot of soul-searching with Eastern cultures! The set's a stripped-down batch of long tracks, with Scott's clarinet in the lead, and backing by 2 Japanese musicians on Koto and Shackuhachi. The tracks are ... LP, Vinyl record album

Best Of Masekela
Uni, Late 60s. Very Good
A compilation of some of Masekela's more famous tunes. Most of the songs are composed by Masekela but they also include tracks like Jobim's "Felicidade" and Webb's "Up-Up & Away". The record contains "Grazing In The Grass", "Coincidence", "Chisa&quo ... LP, Vinyl record album
Blue Thumb, 1975. Very Good- Gatefold
Like Hugh Masekela's other records on Blue Thumb, this is a totally great bit of Afro funk, with a good hard groove filled with tight jazz playing, and some nice choppy rhythm that feels like it belongs on a Fela record. Great stuff played by his tight little Hedzoleh Soundz group, with the cuts ... LP, Vinyl record album
Pace Setters
EG, 1981. Near Mint- Gatefold
A pretty strong Afro Funk act from Ghana – one that probably got more exposure than usual, thanks to the fact that they were taken under the wing of Brian Eno, who produced the album, in a tradition that would stretch back to Ginger Baker's work with Fela. The tracks are all pretty strong, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Numero, Late 70s/Early 80s. Near Mint- 2LP
One of the grooviest compilations we've ever seen – a collection of work by American expatriates living in Israel at the end of the 70s – a hip blend of US funk and Hebrew spirituality! Most of the work here sounds like the best spiritual funk of the 70s – very much in an Earth ... LP, Vinyl record album
Letta (1978)
A&M, 1978. Very Good
Quite different than most of Letta's other albums – with a smooth approach that's got a strong modern soul feel, one that works surprisingly well with Letta's vocals. Paul Riser handled the string and horn arrangements, and although the album's not as "authentic" as some of Letta's ... LP, Vinyl record album
A&M, Early 70s. Very Good
A surprisingly nice album for A&M, and one in which Letta's funky African soul style gets a bit more of an LA studio sound. The record features backing by a lot of well-known funky studio players, and Herb Alpert produced the record with a nice sound that still keeps Letta's rich voice in ... LP, Vinyl record album
