Man Ah Warrior

LP (Item 546001) MER, 1977 — Condition: Near Mint-

A stone classic from Tapper Zukie – working here in a mixture of sung vocals and spoken parts that virtually defines the dee jay style of reggae in the 70s! Tapper's got this righteous power that's undeniable – this quality of confidence without arrogance, at a level that some contemporary artists might try to emulate – and the boldness of the record is still revolutionary after all these years! There's plenty of echo on the vocals – which serves to lay them right down on top of the rhythms – and titles include "Ire Lion", "I King Zukie", "Viego", "Archie The Rednose Reindeer", "Cally Dolly", "Black Cinderella", and "A Message To Pork Eaters".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Black label with silver print. Both vinyl and cover in fantastic shape!)

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.
