Innovation

LP (Item 13636) Tangent (UK), 1974 — Condition: Very Good+

Very nice album by this collective of Brit avant players that includes John Stevens, Trevor Watts, Keith Tippet, and Lindsay Cooper. The music's not as out as you'd expect, and instead grooves nicely at times with sort of a modal edge, augmented by the kind of sharp-toned solos you'd expect from these players. Stevens' drumming is almost funky at times, especially on the cuts "Staggering", "When Is Now", and "Austrian Roll".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has gloss bubbles along the spine.)

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight 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.
