Sounds Of India (2nd cover)

LP (Item 47916) Columbia, Late 50s — Condition: Near Mint-

A very early US release of work by Ravi Shankar – originally part of Columbia's "Adventures In Sound" series, a mixed mood music/world music imprint that offered up some excellent work in its day! The set begins with a compelling "Introduction To Indian Music" – spoken by Ravi himself over the course of a few minutes, with bits of instrumentation used to illustrate his points. Shankar's sitar is in a trio with tabla and tambura – and after that spoken introduction, the record then moves into four longer trance-like tracks – "Dadra", "Maru Bihag", "Bhimpalasi", and "Sindhi Bhairavi".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(360 Sound stereo pressing. B Side label has some sticker remnants.)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor 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.

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

One of the more obscure Olatunji sessions on Columbia – but a record that's still got plenty of firey percussion! Titles include "Bo Su Aye", "Ashafa", "Ojo Davis", and "Dyke Ko Dide". LP, Vinyl record album
