Ravi Shankar's Festival From India

LP (Item 28502) World Pacific, Late 60s — Condition: Very Good+
2LP Gatefold
Heavy-duty 2LP set that documents Ravi's music festival in India – one that features work by him and other Indian musicians like Sabri Khan, Laskshmi Shankar, Sharad Kumar, and Jitendra Abhisheki. Titles include "Raga Kirwani", "Raga Mishra Gara, Teental", "Doh Bahar", "Dhun, Tala Karava", and "Thurmi In Manji Khumaj".  © 1996-2023, 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.

Ravi Shankar

Tana Mana
Private, 1987. Near Mint-
(Cover has edge wear, but looks nice overall.) LP, Vinyl record album
World Pacific, Late 50s. Very Good+ Gatefold
The title tells it all – as Ravi delivers three long ragas, with backing on tabla and tamboura. A nice one to plug in and drop out to – with the 28 minute-long "Raga Jog", plus "Raga Simhendra Madhyaman" and "Raga Ahir Bhairav". LP, Vinyl record album

Ravi Shankar & Alla Rakha

Ragas & Talas
World Pacific, Mid 60s. Good
Early work from sitar legend Ravi Shankar, with work from Alla Rakha on tablas – on the long tracks "Raga Jogiya","Dhun", "Raga Madhu Kauns", and "Rupak Tal". LP, Vinyl record album
Prestige, 1965. Very Good+
This is a stunning set of African-inspired jazzy percussion tracks – similar to some of the work done by Art Blakey on his Orgy In Rhythm albums, but with a lot better horn work, and with an overall conception that's much more unified! AK Salim did some sleepier work for Savoy in the 50s ... LP, Vinyl record album
Folkways, 1967. Very Good+
40s field recordings in pre-Castro Cuba – a series of tracks recorded in Havana and more rural locations, all of which document the surviving African traditions in Cuban music! Much of the work here is relatively spare and percussive – done with instrumentation that includes gourd ... LP, Vinyl record album

Miriam Makeba (Myriam Makeba)

Promise
Disques D'Esperance (France), 1974. Very Good
A real rarity from Miriam Makeba – and a groovy one too! The set was recorded in LA, with help from The Crusaders, Arthur Adams, and David T Walker – with strings by David Axelrod! There's a righteous sound overall, and a nice undercurrent of funk – kind of like the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sakhile

New Life
Jive Afrika, 1984. Very Good+
The group's second album for Jive, and a batch of 80s African tracks that have a surprisingly jazzy edge to them. The sound here is quite different from the Celluloid approach to New African grooves – a bit more soulful and standard, but with strong use of instruments in a fusiony way, one ... LP, Vinyl record album
Nonesuch, Mid 60s. Very Good+
Although most Nonesuch Explorer sessions were ethnographic ones, recorded in the field by the label's engineers – this one's a studio session, recorded in New York by a group that's reputedly from Ghana, but which seems to be kind of a "fake" one from our perspective. Why? Well, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Strut (UK), Late 60s/1970s. Sealed 3LPs
A double-length look at the music of Pat Thomas – a key figure on the scene in Ghana during the 70s, heard here in a variety of settings and styles! The range of sounds promised in the title definitely rings true – as the music starts with early jazzy highlife, then moves through 70s ... LP, Vinyl record album
Rounder, 1986. Near Mint-
With selections by Mapantsula, Aeroplanes, Stan James, The Facts, Cherry Faced Lurchers, Kalahari Surfers, The Softies, In Simple English, Nude Red, Roger Lucy, and Jennifer Fergusson. LP, Vinyl record album

Lalo Schifrin

New Fantasy
Verve, 1964. Very Good Gatefold
The great Lalo Schifrin plays piano and leads a crack group of studio players through some larger orchestral material with a nice jazzy feel! The overall approach is similar to Lalo's classic 60s soundtrack work – with nice solos arching out over sweeping strings and orchestral passages, and ... LP, Vinyl record album
