Live In Amsterdam

LP (Item 40113) EMI, 1984 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album

4.80 32

An excellent live set from Fela – one that shows that he was still very capable of going over the top during the 80s! The set's a double LP – and it features 4 great numbers by the group, with Fela on soprano sax, piano, and organ, and plenty of other great work on tenor, alto, and trumpet. Titles include "Gimme Shit I Give You Shit", "Custom Check Point", "Movement Of The People", and "Political Statement Number 1". (US pressing.)  © 1996-2015, Dusty Groove, Inc.

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.

Used Vinyl Grades

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, please note that all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:

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.

Motown, 1971. Very Good Gatefold
A great early album by the Jacksons – with a monster batch of cuts arranged by Gene Page and The Corporation, all put together with a soulful groove that the group definitely lost on later albums!

Fontana, 1970. Very Good+
A great steel band record, pretty much all covers and just about all funky, too! Like a lot of the groups updating the Carribbean sound with touches of rock, soul and funk, these guys seemed to have their brief moment, then just about completely disappear. There's vocals on some of the tracks, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Flaming Drums!
Columbia, 1962. Near Mint-
Perhaps Olatunjii's best album for Columbia, best because the tracks are a bit longer, with more variation, and they've got more of a jazzy feel than on some of his other LPs. Clark Terry on trumpet and Hosea Taylor on alto sax join the group as soloists – giving the album a bit more of a ... LP, Vinyl record album
