Eskimo

LP (Item 512285) Ralph, 1979 — Condition: Very Good+

Seminal sounds from The Residents – a record that's purportedly inspired by the ceremonial music of the Eskimo – but it's very a much a Residents album, and one that follows their own absurdist adventuresome impulses! There's often this cold, drifting wave of sound in the background that's as chilly as you'd expect – and on top of the sound effects and all around trippy electronic atmosphere, they're supposedly playing instruments made of the guts and bones of arctic wildlife! Titles include "The Walrus Hunt", "Birth", "Arctic Hysteria", "The Angry Angakok", "A Spirit Steals A Child", and "The Festival Of Death".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(2nd pressing on black vinyl, including the printed inner sleeve. Cover has light wear and a sticker spot.)

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.

Mercury, 1983. Near Mint-
Ahhh . . . For the early charms of Trio – a beatbox, a fuzzy guitar, and a simple, playful approach to the the tunes! Tracks all follow in the spirit of their "Da Da Da" hit – short, catchy, and very fun – and titles include "Bye Bye", "Hearts Are ... LP, Vinyl record album

Fear Of Music
Sire, 1979. Near Mint-
A really tremendous album from The Talking Heads – and a set that moves far past their already-great early records, to really show a rhythmic complexity we never would have expected!

Let's Dance
EMI, 1983. Very Good+
A mega-hit for David Bowie – and an album that reduced some of the complexity of previous efforts, yet still managed to hold onto all that was great!

Rock N Roll
Apple, 1975. Near Mint-

Out Of The Frying Pan
United Artists, 1969. Near Mint-
A lost Hammond classic – from organist Mick Weaver, who famously worked with the group Traffic! This set's a lot different than the work he did in that band, though – as the album's all instrumental, and has a quick-stepping, all-soul sound that's a lot like the best Jimmy McGriff ...

Main Ingredient

I Only Have Eyes For You
RCA, 1981. Near Mint-
A great later album from the Main Ingredient – professional, polished, and filled with wonderful harmony vocals!
