Trumpet Africaine

LP (Item 46376) Mercury, Early 60s — Condition: Very Good+

Early work by Hugh Masekela – recorded way before his big hits of the late 60s! The format is different than those recordings, too – with Hugh soloing on trumpet, over larger arrangements by Hugo Montenegro that have sort of a stock African soundtrack-y quality to them. The jazz component of the album is quite high, and all the playing is fairly lively – which makes for a fresh album that stands out strongly in Hugh's early catalog. Titles include "Satisfying Song", "Umhome", "Ox Drivers Song", "Click Song", "He's Gone Away", and "Sit Down".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Green label promo pressing. Cover has light wear and a promo ink stamp on the back.)

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.

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 ... LP, Vinyl record album

Salma & Sabrina

Hits Of ABBA In Hindi
Salma, 1981. Near Mint-
A Hindi tribute to Abba – sung by Salma & Sabrina Agha – over some sweet arrangements that are for the most part quite faithful the original versions! Salma & Sabrina have a bit more delicate style of vocals than the glossy perfection of the Abba originals – and the ... LP, Vinyl record album


Drums Of Passion
Columbia, 1960. Very Good+
A classic session of pounding percussion – quite possibly the most successful entry into this earthy genre that hit the recording scene at the end of the 50s!

Ravi Shankar & Ali Akbar-Khan

Master Musicians Of India
Prestige, 1964. Very Good+
A pretty great pairing of Ravi Shankar and Ali Akbar-Khan – and a set that's nicely different than some of Shankar's more familiar work of the 60s! The group here features sitar by Ravi and Sarod by Ali – plus tabla and two tambouras – all stretched out over side-long tracks that ... LP, Vinyl record album


Bombay Disco 2
Cultures Of Soul, 1980s. Sealed 2LP Gatefold
Bombay grooves, but not just the disco promised in the title – as these cuts come mostly from the 80s years of Bollywood, and show Indian funk moving into a great new realm of styles! There's definitely a disco vibe at the core – and as in other scenes, the style stayed current a lot ... LP, Vinyl record album

Pazy & The Black Hippies

Wa Ho Ha
Secret Stash, 1978. Near Mint-
A weird little record from the Nigerian scene of the 70s – much more laidback than you might expect, and a set with a definite Jamaican influence too! At times, some of these tracks are almost more reggae than Afro Funk – although at other points, there's definitely the fierce energy ... LP, Vinyl record album
