Provocative Electronics

LP (Item 4637) Westminster Gold, Early 70s — Condition: Near Mint-

Great stuff from the early academic days of analogue electronics! Professor Emerson Meyers ran the electronic music library at the Catholic University of America – and despite the sanctimonius nature of his employers, this is some of the most unholy noise we've ever heard! Many of the tracks are dark and brooding, with loud blasts of sound, and strange off-beat washes of moog. The record's pretty darn compelling all the way through – and titles include "Moonlight Sound Pictures", "Chez Dentiste", "Rhythmus", "Fantasia For Organ & Tape", and "Fanfare & Raga for Bassoon & Tape".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has light wear and some aging.)

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.
