Magic Of Makeba

LP (Item 5218) RCA, 1966 — Condition: Near Mint-

A bit of a mainstream effort from Makeba, as this set features more of an emphasis on pop material and standards than on some of her other records. Sid Bass conducted and arranged the orchestral backing on the folk and sixties pop classics, which doesn't leave as much room for her vocal stylings as we'd hope for, but there's a few bright moments shining through here and there, and numbers include "When I've Passed On", "Autumn Song", "Seven Good Years", "Sleep Tight", "Where Does It Lead", "Muntu", and "Oh, So Alone".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Black label stereo Dynagroove pressing with deep groove. Includes the RCA inner sleeve. Cover has a small center split in the top seam, in great shape otherwise.)

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.
