Masekela

LP (Item 21915) Chisa/Uni, Early 70s — Condition: Very Good+
One of the funkier albums by African trumpeter Hugh Masekela, and a record that's filled with lots of short little groovers that have more of an edge than on previous pop instrumental albums – much more of the hard funky vibe of the Chisa years! The set features loads of great funky 45 cuts – including "Fuzz", "Riot", "Mace & Grenades", "Gold", and "Head Peepin".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has light ring and edge wear, tiny cutout hole, mild corner bend.)

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.

Hugh Masekela

Colonial Man
Casablanca, 1976. Near Mint-
A later album from Hugh Masekela – but still plenty darn hip, way more so than most of the other artists on the Casablanca label at the time! Hugh's South African groove is still very firmly in place here – mixed with a slightly warmer LA soul sound, but expanded with loads of great ... LP, Vinyl record album
Uni, Late 60s. Very Good
One of Hugh's most compelling records from the time – cut live at the Whiskey A Go Go, with a jazzy edge that really shows him growing a lot as a musician. The set features small combo backing by a group that features Al Abreu on sax, Hotep Cecil Barnard on piano, Henry Franklin on bass, and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Promise Of A Future
Uni, Late 60s. Very Good
Classic work from Hugh Masekela – and the album that pushed him over the top!

Ravi Shankar

In Concert
World Pacific, 1961. Very Good+
An early 60s live set from Ravi Shankar – recorded at UCLA, but with a clarity of sound that rivals his studio albums from the time! The album features 2 long tracks – the extended raga "Madhuvanti", and the vocal number "Dhun In Mishra Mand" – both with Kanai ... LP, Vinyl record album

Seminal South African work from Harari – a group who'd previously recorded as The Beaters, but changed their name after getting a new spiritual awakening while touring Zimbabwe! That new name and new spirit really fits the sound here – an even deeper incarnation of the style they ... LP, Vinyl record album

Afro Drums
Counterpoint, 1958. Near Mint-
A great little album of percussion grooves – hidden under a package that looks like it's going to be a lot more rootsy, but which ends up sounding like some of the hipper conga-heavy sessions on labels like Liberty or GNP from the late 50s. Jackson plays much of the percussion, but there's ... LP, Vinyl record album
