LP (Item 1606) Limelight, Late 60s — Condition: Very Good+

Cool album of avant garde percussion pieces, played by a European sextet dedicated to playing this kind of stuff. The showpiece of the album is their own composition "Signals", which spans all of side two and which has some cool noisy percussion bits. There's two other pieces on the album, and they've both got a similar feel – that particular sort of 20th century percussion sound that Limelight and Nonesuch were recording a lot of at this point.  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

A wonderful collection of early electronic music – issued by the less-high tech Folkways label, but every bit as compelling as similar collections from bigger labels at the time!

Time, Mid 60s. Very Good+ Gatefold
A haunting album of shorter chamber works by some lesser known avant garde composers of the 60s.

Deutsche Grammophon (Germany), 1974. Very Good+ Gatefold
Two fairly extreme pieces by Nono which both mix voices and electronics. "Como Una" features a soprano and piano, and has a fairly heavy clunky sound. We're partial to "Yentonces Comprendio", which mixes multiple sopranos and tape, to create a haunting wispy sound with the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Nonesuch, 1986. Near Mint-
A totally great, totally cool little record – one in which experimental musician Scott Johnson uses his guitar to trigger a set of spoken phrases! The approach is somewhere between early Steve Reich tape experiments and Frippertronics – as Johnson makes these great loops of sound that ... LP, Vinyl record album

Shadybrook, 1976. Sealed
Kellee Patterson's amazing first album for the Shadybrook label – a total killer all the way through, and much harder and heavier than any of her later sides for the label! The record's got a nice jazzy vibe that's a good bridge between her earlier work on Black Jazz, and her later, ... LP, Vinyl record album
