Missa Luba

LP (Item 475919) Philips, 1968 — Condition: Very Good+
Gatefold
One of the biggest world music hits of the 60s – a unique album that mixes Congolese songs with a new interpretation of the Latin mass! Les Troubadours Du Roi Baudouin are an ensemble of young singers with a very joyous sort of feel – one that works equally well for the traditional numbers, and for the new recasting of the mass which takes up the second half of the record. Instrumentation is relatively spare – often just a bit of percussion underneath the soaring voices – and titles include the entire "Missa Luba", plus "Banaha", "Twai Tshinaminai", "Lutuku & A Bene Kanyoka", "Ebu Ewale Kemai", and "Dibwe Diambula Kabanda".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(In the extravagant booklet cover, with light wear, small sticker spot, and hype sticker.)

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.
