Bamboo Magic

LP (Item 3413) Atlantic, 1978 — Condition: Near Mint-

One of the few American albums issued by this Dutch funky flautist who cut more than his share of heavy discs on the other side of the Atlantic. Hinze was part of the lowland funk scene that included John Lee & Gerry Brown (both of whom are on this record), and his music shares a similar spacey fusion quality, with very long drawn out grooves. The title cut – "Bamboo Magic" – is a nice funky cut with Hubert Eaves on Fender Rhodes, and other cuts include "Essence", "Le Mistral", "Venga", and "I'm Gonna Love You".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has minimal wear and a cutout hole.)

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.

A masterful album from Billy Cobham – and maybe the best 70s record to really demonstrate the unique place he found for himself in 70s fusion!

A surprisingly great record from Milt Jackson – and we're saying that after being plenty darn suspicious about a record titled Be Bop recorded in the late 80s!

One of the first MJQ albums on Atlantic – and a bit fresher than some of their later outings, when it seemed like they were churning records out at the drop of a hat!
