Stratavarious

LP (Item 20487) Atco, 1972 — Condition: Near Mint-

Forget what you think about Ginger Baker, this one's really more of a Fela album – as it was recorded in London during the time when Fela and Ginger Baker were hanging out together! The tracks are long, with a tight funky sound, and lots of cool keyboards by Fela (who also sings and plays percussion). One track, recorded earlier, features a cool percussion jam between Ginger Baker and Guy Warren, the enigmatic African percussionist who also recorded with his Soundz group in the UK. Titles include "Ju Ju", "Blood Brothers", "Ariwo", and "Tiwa".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Original yellow label pressing. Cover has a promo sticker, cutout notch, some wear, and unglued bottom seam.)

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.

Killer Joe
Columbia, 1977. Very Good-
A fantastic album from tenor legend Benny Golson – one in which he reinvents his sound for the 70s, but still keeps all the tight sense of arrangement we loved in his earlier work! Benny's going for a funky jazz groove on most cuts – a bit clubby, in a Kudu Records mode – with a ... LP, Vinyl record album
