Snake Charmer EP

LP (Item 473387) Island, 1983 — Condition: Near Mint-

One of the best Jah Wobble projects we've ever heard – and a record with a sound that was funky enough to cross over to the clubs! The record follows in the spirit of some of Wobble's other post-PIL projects, but with a bit more focus – thanks possibly to Francois K, who produced the whole record, and definitely gives it a push in the Danceteria direction. The Edge plays guitar on 3 of the 5 tracks here – and other work is by Animal, Jaki Liebezeit, and Holger Czukay. Titles include "Sleazy", "It Was A Camel", "Snake Charmer", and "Hold On To Your Dreams" – which features lyrics by Arthur Russell.  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(US pressing. Cover has a small cutout mark.)

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.
