West Meets East

LP (Item 577267) Angel, 1966 — Condition: Very Good+

Mostly "east" – as the violin of the famous solist comes into play with the sitar of Ravi Shankar, plus tabla and tanpura! The vibe's a bit like some of the best John Mayer albums, although less jazz.  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Tan label stereo pressing. Cover looks nice, save for some light staining on the back opening.)

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.

Oud Artistry
Mainstream, Late 60s. Very Good+
Groovy Eastern sounds from John Berberian – a musician we know from more rockish projects, but who steps out here on a relatively traditional set of tunes! As you'd guess from the title, Berberian's instrument is the oud – that weird stringed instrument we probably know best from Ahmed ... LP, Vinyl record album

Kalyan
MCA, 1977. Sealed
These guys were a big group in Trinidad – where, according to the cover, they were the number 1 R&B group in the 70s – but they hardly cracked the US marked with this 1977 release. The album's a combination of 70s funk and various African influences – mostly uptempo, in a ... LP, Vinyl record album

A masterpiece – one of 2 crazy albums in which Woody Herman's late band meets the Cadet arrangements of Richard Evans.
