Land Of 1000 Dances (Rampart pressing)

LP (Item 478963) Rampart, 1965 — Condition: Very Good+

One of the all-time Chicano Rock classics from LA – a soulful batch of party numbers from legendary east side group Cannibal & The Headhunters! The group scored big with their hit version of "Land Of 1000 Dances" – a thumping, bumping take on the tune that was a runaway single in the 60s – and which set the tone for the rest of their tunes, all done in a brown-eyed soul mode that often offered a new take on better known hits of the 60s! Titles include "Land Of 1000 Dances", "Out Of Sight", "My Girl", "Searchin", "Shotgun", and "The Fat Man".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Mono orange label pressing. Cover has some edge wear, splitting in the top seam, lightly bent corners at the bottom, and a stain on back.)

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.

A great moment in the career of the mighty Leon Ware – a set recorded after his famous 70s work for Motown, and before his return to fame at Elektra – but still with a super-tight quality that shows that Leon was always great, no matter what the setting!

Eivets Rednow – Alfie
Motown, 1968. Very Good+
A late 60s all-instrumental set from Stevie Wonder – and a record that shows a real change from his style in the earlier part of the decade – a much more mature move forward, and one that hints at the power of his arrangements in the 70s!

Tamla, 1979. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
Very high concept work from Stevie Wonder! The record is, in fact, about the "secret life of plants" – partially used as a soundtrack for a film of the same name, but also acting as kind of a storybook in itself! Stevie's exploring a wide range of plant life and plant themes on ... LP, Vinyl record album
Philadelphia International, 1983. Very Good+
Incredible work from The O'Jays – and the kind of record that shows that they never lost their touch!

A&M, 1973. Very Good+
Sweet funky Q for the 70s – easily one of the coolest albums ever from Quincy Jones!
