Jungle Percussion

LP (Item 22680) Tops/Mayfair, Late 50s — Condition: Very Good-

Spare, tribal, and heavy percussion – with a sound that's a lot more credible than some of the other stuff on labels like this from the same time. We're not sure who the group is, but even if they are studio guys working under another name, they still do a pretty darn good job! Titles include "Moondongo", "Mato Grooso", "Asiwanda", "Guaguanco", and "Zulu".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Blue label stereo Mayfair pressing with deep groove. Cover has a split top seam and spine, with some surface wear and yellowing from age.)

Very Good - (minus)

  • Vinyl may be dirty, and can lack a fair amount of luster.
  • Vinyl can have a number of marks, either in clusters or smaller amounts, but deeper.
  • This is the kind of record that you'd buy to play, but not because it looked that great. Still, the flaws should be mostly cosmetic, with nothing too deep that would ruin the overall record.
  • Examples include a record that has been kept for a while in a cover without the paper sleeve, or heavily played by a previous owner and has some marks across the surface. The record should play okay, though probably with surface noise.

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.

Music For Sensuous Lovers
Anthem/Sensuous Sounds, Mid 70s. Near Mint-
An obscure album of sex and sounds – typical of the genre in that it offers the sound of a woman receiving pleasure, backed by a variety of sonic settings.

A very groovy album by Laurindo Almeida – one of his best bossa cookers in a swinging 60s mode!

Cool Mancini work from the start of the 70s – a record that offers a nice step forward from his scoring styles of the 60s, with a slightly orchestral feel as well!

It's a long way from LA to Broadway, but Martin Denny makes the trip with most of his bag still intact, and actually manages to deliver some pretty interesting versions of Broadway hits of the 1950s.
