Beatnuts Collection – 31 Original Songs Sampled By The Beatnuts

LP (Item 502713) Strictly Breaks, 1960s/1970s — Condition: Near Mint-
Better than boosting the Beatnuts crates out of the studio! This set features 31 tracks in all – all tunes used by the Beatnuts for some of their best tracks – all referenced in the titles, too, so you won't spend too much time saying "Hey, I recognize that – what's it the sample for?" Tracks include "The Confined Few" by Booker Ervin, "The Matrix" by Dizzy Gillespie, "Golliwog's Cakewalk" by Tomita, "New Orleans" by The Pazant Brothers, "Easy Answering" by Chris Hinze, "Theme For Losers" by Henry Mancini, "Break That Party" by Melvin Van Peebles, "Sign Song" by Buddy Baker, "Me" by Bob McGraph, "Fueron Tres Anos" by Los Angelos Negros, "Sesame Street Theme" by Blowfly, "Hijack" by Enoch Light, "So It Doesn't Whistle" by R Allen, "Wee Tina" by Donald Byrd, "Never On Sunday" by Roger Maxwell, "Daydream" by Bernard Wystraete, and "Caseine" by Jacques Loussier.  © 1996-2023, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.
