New York Noise – Dance Music From The New York Underground 1978 – 1982

LP (Item 487585) Soul Jazz (UK), Early 80s — Condition: Near Mint-
2LP

Seminal work from one of the most exciting times in modern music – the groundbreaking New York post-punk, post-disco club years – when everything was up for grabs! The work on the set does a really great job of documenting the way that boundaries were blown during the time – as funk met punk, rock met rap, soul met ska, avant garde met mainstream – all in pursuit of the groove! For years, this period has gone under-documented and under-understood – largely because of the complexity and diversity of the music in the scene. But as always, the folks at Soul Jazz Records have done a fantastic job of bringing the whole thing to light – choosing all the best tracks we could have hoped for, and packaging the album with a great set of notes that really gets at the heart of the matter! Titles include "Baby Dee" by Konk, "You Got Me" by Theoretical Girls, "Contort Yourself" by The Contortions, "You Make No Sense" by ESG, "Beat Bop" by Rammelzee Vs K Rob, "Lesson No 1" by Glenn Branca, "Clean On Your Bean #1" by Dinosaur L, "Helen Fordsdale" by Mars, "Defunkt" by Defunkt, "Button Up" by The Bloods, "5:30" by DNA, "Do Dada" by The Dance, "Wa Wa" by Lizzy Mercier Descloux, "Reduction" by Material, and "Optimo" by Liquid Liquid.  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Includes the heavy inner sleeves with notes.)

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.

Disco Gold
Scepter, 1975. Near Mint-
During the mid 70s, some of the older New York soul indies were the first to get on the disco tip – and one of the biggest was Scepter Records, who found the burgeoning movement to be a perfect foil for some of its older vocal groups and singers.

Larry Coryell tries out his vocal chops a bit on this album with his classic group from the early 70s – but the main "voice" on the record is still his wonderfully tight guitar – which has a beautifully sharp sound throughout!
