Sounds Of Sebring 1961 - World's Greatest 12-Hour Sports Car Endurance Race

LP (Item 15626) Riverside, 1961 — Condition: Near Mint-
(€5.92 || £5.22 || ¥786) (approx.)

More groovy drag racing stuff, recorded as part of Riverside's Hot Rod series in the early 60's. The record contains highlights from the 1961 Sebring 12-hour endurance race. There doesn't seem to be that much happening in the way of tragedies or accidents, but the record's got lots of cool car sounds, racing along the track in a nice "doppler effect" sort of way. (Blue label Bill Grauer pressing, with deep groove & microphone logo. Cover has ring & edge wear, a sticker on front, cutout hole, and some seam splits.)  © 1996-2017, 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.

This is one of Mort Garson's craziest moog records ever, or as the label says: "Moog Goes Supernatural with Eerie Electronics".

Strings Aflame
RCA, 1959. Very Good
Despite the "strings" in the title, this one actually swings quite well, and has a bit of an exotic gypsy flavor to it, augmented by cool spacey production that makes the strings hum with a strange other-worldly tonality. The set's filled with the usual crazy Esquivel arrangements, and ... LP, Vinyl record album

What a groovy little set! Side 1 features "Sailboat", nothing but a recording of the ambient sounds of the deck fo a sailboat as it cuts its way through the waves on a peaceful sunny day.
