LP, Vinyl record album


The title tells it all – as Ravi delivers three long ragas, with backing on tabla and tamboura. A nice one to plug in and drop out to – with the 28 minute-long "Raga Jog", plus "Raga Simhendra Madhyaman" and "Raga Ahir Bhairav".  © 1996-2017, 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.

Exotic Sitar & Sarod
Capitol, Mid 60s. Very Good
Mid 60s release of some earlier sides recorded by Ravi in India – classic work with Ali Akbar Khan on sarod, plus Alla Rakha on tabla and Ashkish Kumar on tanpura. The album features two long ragas, each making up a side of the record – "Raga Shree" and "Raga Sindhu ... LP, Vinyl record album
Genius of Ravi Shankar
Columbia, Late 60s. Very Good
Nice stuff by Ravi Shankar – although we should hate the album for its patronizing liner notes, which refer to Shankar's work as "psychedelicacies", and which wonder aloud why people need to use hallucinogenic drugs if they've got Ravi! Titles include "Sitar Todi", "R ... LP, Vinyl record album

Supposedly, this is one of the many incarnations of the group that's better known under the names Lafayette Afro-Rock Band and Ice. The material here is more in the vein of work by Ice – in that it's kind of faster Afro-Funk inspired grooves, with bass, guitar, organ, and lots of keyboards ... LP, Vinyl record album

Funky Sitar Man
BBE (UK), 1997. Near Mint-
Surprisingly fantastic bit of funky sitar tracks! The project's a recent one, but it's got a classic 70s global crossover funk sound that's very much in the vein of the weird Indian-funk work of Ananda Shankar or The Dave Pike set. The record's got a raw Meters-esque groove at the base – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Barclay (France), 1980. Near Mint- (reissue)
One of Fela's all time classics – and a biting attack on the transnational monster that was International Telephone & Telegraph in the 70s! The album's a bit different than some of the others – in that it features one long tune that runs for both sides of the wax – but that ... LP, Vinyl record album
