Maya Angelou — Miss Calypso – Maya Angelou ... CD 6.99

Wild! Long before she was a hipster poet, and even longer before she was the Poet Laureate, Maya cut this early album of calypso tracks for Liberty – with a rootsy sound that's actually pretty darn nice! Maya wrote a larger number of the tracks, and backing is by Tommy Tedesco on guitar and Al Bello on some really nice percussion. It's really only an oddball treat of your think about the later reknown of Maya Angelou, but a treat it is, and a wholly credible late 50s calypso pop record. Tunes include "Neighbor, Neighbor", "Oo Dla Ba Boo", "Mambo In Africa", "Tamo", "Pease & Rice", and "Run Joe". Fantastic cover, too!  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.


Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible.

When you purchase a Used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use but if there are significant details or defects we will list them underneath the item — just like we do with LPs — so look there for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details.

All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.

Liberty/EMI (UK), Late 50s. Used
Sad moody work from Julie London – 2 late 50s gems back to back on 1 CD! The albums feature Julie in that perfect early mode – just voice, light rhythm, and sad guitar – slowly, sleepily unfolding, in a style that's as lonely as the title of the records. The whole thing's great ... CD

Apollo Sound (UK), Early 70s. Used
Nice one! Despite the "lounge" in the title of this, most of the cuts on here are lost 70's jazz tracks – recorded for the tiny Apollo Sound label by either British or Eastern European combos. None of this stuff's been released to the public before, so you probably won't know it, ... CD
