Americanization Of Ooga Booga

LP (Item 372573) MGM, Late 60s — Condition: Very Good

Incredible stuff from Hugh Masekela – the kind of a record that ties it all together and serves up a whole new sound! The set was recorded in front of a jazz and folk-loving audience at the Village Gate – who gave Hugh the freedom to really unwind in a set of longer tracks that push the tighter South African soul of earlier years into an even more expansive format. The rhythms are long and complex, and topped off by vocalizations on many numbers, plus Hugh's trademark bright style of trumpet work. The whole thing's a landmark session that grooves like a mofo – and titles include a great remake of "Cantaloupe Island", plus "Bajabula Bonke", "Myxolydia", "U-Dwi", "Masquenada", and "Unhlanhla".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.

Island, 1972. Very Good+
One of those British sessions from the early 70s that mix African grooves with British prog rock, in a mode that's similar to some of the Ginger Baker albums from the same time. Percussionist Anthony Reebop Kwaku Baah sings on the whole record, but the real strength comes from the ensemble backing ... LP, Vinyl record album

Funky Turkish rock from the enigmatic Ersen – an artist we'd rank right up there with Erkin Koray and Selda for choppy grooves and offbeat music! Like both of those artists, Ersen works in that vein of Turkish rock known as Arabesk or Andalou pop – a very cool blend of Western ... LP, Vinyl record album

Polydor, 1978. Very Good
A masterpiece – and don't pass it up! Sure, the date's a bit later than some of Roy's classic work, but the record's got a sound like no other – with a slow mellow jazzy style that shows Roy working at the height of his powers! There's some wonderful spacey production on the record ... LP, Vinyl record album

One of Oscar Brown's great ones, recorded live at the Cellar Door in Washington before an enthusiastic crowd of hipsters!
