Limbo Party

LP (Item 630822) Stereo-Fidelity, Early 60s — Condition: Very Good+
A Limbo Party record from Ivy Pete & His Limbomaniacs – but a set that also seems to mix in a fair bit of Latin elements with the Caribbean styles! The record is way better than the usual limbo set from the time – as the instrumentation is razor sharp, and filled with tight, fast percussion riffs that really drive the grooves – while flute provide much of the melody, and sweet electric guitar lines come into the mix to hold the whole thing together! Pete sings a bit with the group on the record, always jumping along with the rhythms – and titles include "Donkey Wants Water", "Little Brown Skin Girl", "Sly Mongoose", "I Adore Her", "Man Smart Woman Smarter", and "Peas & Rice".  © 1996-2024, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Mono pressing.)

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.

Baroque Beatles Book
Elektra, 1965. Very Good+
One of the weirdest Beatle-related projects of the 60s – and one of the most abstract, as well!
