Ginger continues his further exploration into soul, funk, and African rhythms – working here in a mode that takes a Brit jazz rock groove and expands it with a growing interest in the Afro Funk and South African jazz influences that were floating around the London scene at the time. Tracks are way better than you'd expect – with plenty of jazzy soloing – and players include Harold McNair on flute and alto, Graham Bond on sax and organ, and Neemoi Acquaye on African drums and percussion! A really great set that's criss-crossing with hip styles that somehow come together beautifully – and featuring titles that include "Toady", "12 Gates Of The City", "Do U No Hu Yor Phrenz R?", and "Sweet Wine". (Cover has moderate wear, some splitting and tape along some seams. Vinyl plays with some crackles.)  © 1996-2015, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl may be dirty, or have one outstanding flaw, such as a light residue, which could be difficult to clean.
  • May have marks on all parts, too many to qualify as Very Good-, or several deeper marks, but the record should still be ok for play without skips.
  • In general, this is a record that was played a fair amount, and handled without care. A typical example may be a record which has been heavily played by a DJ, and carries marks from slip cueing. Depending on the quality of the vinyl, may play with surface noise throughout.

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.

Black Pearl – Live!
Prophesy, 1970. Very Good+ Gatefold
Nice bit of rockin' funky soul by a band that we know little about, but who seem to be an LA rock band that's obsessed with soul music. The LP contains a great 11 minute version of "Cold Sweat", played with a lot of funky vamping by the band in a JB's style. There's also a nice version ... LP, Vinyl record album

Feelin Groovy
Warner, Late 60s. Very Good-
A dream – and the fab first LP by Harpers Bizarre! The group were one of the strangest pop ensembles operating in the seminal LA scene of the mid 60s – ostensibly a sweet harmony vocal group, but with a strangely childish approach that also had an ear open for the mind-blowing ...

Eve of Destruction
RCA, Mid 60s. Good+
The LP that followed up Barry's classic pop folk track "Eve Of Destruction". The track still sends a shiver up our spines – probably more because we've seen it used in a million documentaries, than because of any actual power in the song. Still, it's a darn groovy track, and the ... LP, Vinyl record album
