Sorcery!

LP (Item 21480) Columbia, Late 50s — Condition: Near Mint-

A strange little record – a bit different than usual from percussionist Sabu Martinez, and with a slight exotica feel too! There's a groove that's still mostly Latin – but, like most of Sabu's wonderful music, things go way past the obvious – as percussion takes hold, and Sabu moves things in ways that are all his own! The rest of the players aren't credited – but the set's billed to Sabu's "Percussion Ensemble" – possibly because the liner notes spend too much time referring to the musician as some sort of earthy savage. Tracks are long, with lots of heavy percussion – and titles include "Bonco", "Moon Black", "Sol", and "Milk Weed".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Recent reissue.)

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.
