Ipi-Tombi

LP (Item 24122) Ashtree, 1975 — Condition: Very Good+
2LP Gatefold

Original cast production of this semi-popular musical from the early 70s – a collection of South African tunes performed by a large uncredited cast. The tunes have a nice groove that's sort of in the Miriam Makeba soul mode, mixed with others that get a bit more folksy and use a lot of percussion – and most titles on the set have vocals by a large ensemble. Titles include "Bona Noga", "The Witchdoctor", "Baby Baby Soweto By Night", "The Click Arieni", "Egoli", "Andy's Song", "The Warrior", "The Digger", "Ipi-Tombi", and "Bayete".  © 1996-2021, 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.

West Meets East
Angel, 1966. Very Good+
Mostly "east" – as the violin of the famous solist comes into play with the sitar of Ravi Shankar, plus tabla and tanpura! The vibe's a bit like some of the best John Mayer albums, although less jazz. LP, Vinyl record album
Tower, Late 60s. Sealed
A very groovy heist soundtrack! Vic Mizzy did a rare few albums under his own name – and this soundtrack is a great little gem that mixes jazzy bits with more bossa and Latin inflected numbers.
