Ginger Baker's Air Force 2

LP (Item 47549) Atco, 1970 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


5.00 10

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". (Canadian pressing in a non-gatefold cover.)  © 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.
