Ginger Baker's Air Force 2

LP (Item 47549) Atco, 1970 — Condition: Very Good+
$24.99 ...

LP

(€22.12 || £19.08 || ¥2517) (approx.)

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 some ink stamps and a few peeled spots. Label has ink stamps.)  © 1996-2016, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

Rootsier material than you might be used to from Tim Hardin – tracks that were recorded before his famous albums on Verve in the mid 60s, but issued later by Atlantic Records – obviously in an attempt to rush some Hardin material on the market!

Fourth (4)
Columbia, 1970. Near Mint-
