Medicine Ball Caravan

LP (Item 698791) Warner, 1971 — Condition: Near Mint-

One of the less-remembered records from the era of the giant rock festival – a set of tracks that were recorded during a wild cross-country hippie caravan! Although maybe not another Woodstock, the album does have some long live tracks that are really worth seeking out – in a relatively surprising blend of musicians that makes for a pretty interesting record overall! Highlights include a searing eight minute take on "Black Juju" by Alice Cooper, a ten minute medley of "How Blue Can You Get/Just A Little Love" by BB King, a twelve minute "Freakout/It Takes A Lot To Laugh" by Stoneground, a version of "Free The People" by Delaney & Bonnie, one of the rawest Doug Kershaw performances we've ever heard on "Louisiana Man/Battle Of New Orleans/Orange Blossom Special", Sal Valentino singing "Dreambo", and the Youngbloods tracks "Hippie From Olema" and "Act Naturally", both nicely tongue in cheek.  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(White label promo. Cover has light wear.)

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.

Fantastic stuff! In case you don't know it, this is one of Lalo Schifrin's most incredible soundtracks, and it's a stunning mix of jazz, bossa, and groovy grooves. There's lots of cool bubbling electric bass, lilting keyboards, and moody breezy rhythms. Nearly every cut's a winner, and if you ... LP, Vinyl record album

Great work from Earl Hagen – one of TV's better composers, as you'll hear from this tight set of tracks! The core mode of the music is crime jazz, but Hagen also adds in a lot of dramatic flourishes and contemplative passages – and the show's exotic locales (Mexico, Japan, Burma, Hong ...
