Mood Is Modal EP

12-inch (Item 480711) Schema (Italy), 2000 — Condition: Very Good
(pic cover)
Out Of Stock

12-inch, Vinyl record


Excellent modern bossa grooves! The group is British, but the record's issued on Schema – and it reminds us a lot of the modern bossa work that's been showing up on the label. The band is incredibly tight, with a straightforward trio format of organ and drums, mixed with occasional vibes, conga, and moog! A few cuts have female vocals – and as the title would imply, all the cuts have a storming modal jazz groove that never quits. Excellent stuff – and with the cuts "Easy Boy", "Mood Is Modal", and "Touched By The Hand Of Tenorio".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.

Sublime soul from Moment Of Truth – an incredible number from Salsoul's glory days! The tune's clubby, but it's also overflowing with soul – with male vocals on the lead, female backing harmonies, and a catchy hook that should have made this one a massive crossover cut! 8 minutes long ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
