Keep Me In Mind

LP (Item 38699) Reprise, 1970 — Condition: Very Good+
Also available
Miriam Makeba — Keep Me In Mind ... CD 12.99
One of Miriam Makeba's hippest albums of all time – a set that marked the end of her association with Reprise Records, and her fame in the crossover American scene of the 60s – and for good reason, too – as the whole thing's brimming over with much more righteous energy than ever before! Makeba's really letting loose here – not content to bring South African custom and culture to the overseas mainstream, but instead stepping forth with a new sense of mission and message – one that even comes through when she takes on some more familiar tunes by other artists at the time! The set features production from Lewis Merenstein, who'd done Astral Weeks – and the sound here is so different than Miriam's records from just a few years before – thanks also in part to the great backing arranged by George Butcher, which adds in lots of bass, percussion, and horns that take Miriam into a hipper 70s Afro Soul mode. Titles include "Lumumba", "Kulala", "Tululu", "Down On the Corner", "In My Life", and a great cover of "For What It's Worth".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has partial splitting, light surface & edge wear.)

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.

Miriam Makeba

World Of Miriam Makeba
RCA, 1963. Near Mint-
One of Miriam Makeba's first albums released in the US. A hip set with backings by Hugh Masekela, in a mode that's got a nice South African soul groove to it – but which still had enough folksy touches to keep the American crossover audience happy. Titles on that one include "Forbidden ... LP, Vinyl record album

RCA, 1964. Very Good+
LP...$9.99 11.99
A great little early album from Miriam Makeba – featuring trumpet and arrangements by Hugh Masekela, with backings by a small combo that give her a nice South African groove. Most of the tracks retain Miriam's early folksy style – with roosty vocals grooving around some nice jaunty ... LP, Vinyl record album

Promise Of A Future
Uni, Late 60s. Near Mint-
Classic work from Hugh Masekela – and the album that pushed him over the top!

Masekela
Chisa/Uni, Early 70s. Very Good+
One of the funkier albums by African trumpeter Hugh Masekela, and a record that's filled with lots of short little groovers that have more of an edge than on previous pop instrumental albums – much more of the hard funky vibe of the Chisa years! The set features loads of great funky 45 cuts ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ashwin Batish

Sitar Power
Batish, 1986. Near Mint-
Silly stuff – but it works! Ashwin Batish was born 10 years too late – because if this album was recorded in the 70s, it would have a strong Bollywood groove, with Ashwin's sitar funking over heavy wah-wah guitar. As it is, though, Ashwin recorded this one in 1986 – so the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Al takes over the whole deal with this one – as the record features him writing, producing, arranging, and even playing lead guitar – stepping out from under the protective wing of Willie Mitchell, and doing a surprisingly great job overall!
