Miriam Makeba

LP (Item 48151) RCA, 1960 — Condition: Very Good+

One of Miriam's first albums in the US – issued under the supervision of Harry Belafonte, and recorded with only guitar backing on most cuts, plus some additional vocal help from the Belafonte Folk Singers. Tracks include "Olili", "The Retreat Song", "Umhome", "The Click Song", "Iya Guduza", "One More Dance", and "Where Does It Lead?"  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Mono black label pressing with deep groove.)

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 huge breakthrough moment for Miriam Makeba – a South African singer who'd been bringing her music to the American scene for a number of years, but really took off in new soulful directions with this 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
