Earthquake Island

LP (Item 40064) Tomato, 1978 — Condition: Very Good+
Gatefold

One of the most compelling albums we've ever heard by trumpeter Jon Hassell – with a lot more going on than usual! Hassell's still got that spacey trumpet sound that made him famous, but he's working here with a hip group of fusion players that includes Nana Vasconcelos, Miroslav Vitous, and Dom Um Romao – cooking up some tracks that have a nice jazz funk groove and some pretty cool interplay between trumpet, keyboards, and percussion. Titles include "Voodoo Wind", "Cobra Moon", "Sundown Dance", "Adios Saturn", and "Earthquake Island".  © 1996-2020, 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.

Hall & Oates

Private Eyes
RCA, 1981. Very Good
What can we say? We winced at this one back when it came out, but over the years, it's got a real "Free Soul" appeal to us – with vocals that are surprisingly soulful in parts, some nice 80s mellow soul instrumentation, and even a few hooks that are real guilty pleasures.

Santana

Abraxas
Columbia, 1970. Very Good Gatefold
In the past 30 years, this one's gone from being a fierce outpouring of the Bay Area underground, to a cliche of classic rock, to a brilliant example of west coast Latin rock/funk/fusion in action! Features a stellar cover of "Oye Como Va", plus "Black Magic Woman/Gypsy Queen", ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sire, 1984. Very Good

Santana

Welcome
Columbia, 1973. Very Good Gatefold
Sadly, it's really easy to dismiss Santana, if only for his having been elevated to iconic status among hippies and classic rock lovers, in spite of the fact that he made a number of great records. This early 70s effort finds him moving in a more jazzy direction, with supple rhythms underpinning ... LP, Vinyl record album

Rolling Stones

Some Girls
Rolling Stones, 1978. Very Good
Way more than the disco cash-in some folks thought at the time – and a surprisingly classic set that perfectly sums up the late 70s Stones ethos – and, in a way, the vibe of a changing New York! Titles include "Miss You", "Beast Of Burden", "Shattered", ... LP, Vinyl record album
Epic, 1970. Very Good Gatefold
The crowning achievement of Spirit – and a record that you probably could have found in any college dorm room in the early 70s! The record's really a cut above for their generation – an expansive effort that hangs together with a bit of a concept, and which interweaves strands of rock, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bonzo Dog Band

Tadpoles
Imperial, 1969. Very Good
One of the most all-out comedic efforts from The Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band – a set that strongly shows their frequent association with the Monty Python crowd – and which comes off with a very similar sense of humor! The post-modern pastiche is in full effect here – as snippets of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Livingston Taylor

Livingston Taylor
Capricorn/Atco, 1970. Very Good
Livingston Taylor's not hiding his relation to brother James Taylor here – at least not in his style, which is strongly Taylor-like, but not nearly as filled with cliche! The songs are short, simple, and nicely personal – a bit folksy at moments, and at their best when sung with some ... LP, Vinyl record album

Carlos Santana & Mahavishnu John McLaughlin

Love Devotion Surrender
Columbia, 1973. Very Good Gatefold
Pretty hip stuff, with a definite Coltrane influence – and Larry Young in the group on organ, along with Billy Cobham on drums and Armando Peraza on congas. Titles include "Naima", "A Love Supreme", "Let Us Go Into The House Of The Lord", "Meditation", ... LP, Vinyl record album
Reprise, Late 60s. Very Good
A huge breakthrough moment for Miriam Makeba – a South African singer who'd been bringing her music to the American scene for a number of years, but really took off in new soulful directions with this album!
