Astral Daze Vol 3 – Snapshots Of The South African Rock Underground

CD (Item 665167) Fresh (South Africa), Late 60s/Early 70s — Condition: Used
$11.99 ...

CD

A side of the South African scene that's quite different than any world music expectations you might have – as the package is filled with late 60s/early 70s rockers from the SA underground – loads of fuzzy nuggets that come across with a strongly Anglo sound overall! In fact, the package might almost be seen as a southern hemisphere counterpart to the sound of London at the end of the 60s – as most of these groups work with a similar blend of freak, fuzz, and darkness that matches bigger British names of the period – especially those groups who were getting a bit far-out, yet never overindulgent. Most tracks are relatively short – not yet at prog jamming levels – and production is nice and sinister throughout – on titles that include "I've Found Her" by The 004s, "Here Comes The Sun" by Hawk, "The Circus" by McCully Workshop, "Hairy Man" by The Gentle People, "Jersey Thursday" by Abstract Truth, "The Ostrich" by Jacob Hay, "Caterpillar" by Third Eye, "Lonely Man" by Wakeford Hart, and "All In A Dream" by The Tidal Wave.  © 1996-2021, 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.
