Mexico – Fiestas Of Chiapas & Oaxaca

LP (Item 699085) Nonesuch, 1976 — Condition: Near Mint-

Field recordings by David Lewiston that feature regional folk and festival tunes for various occasions and rituals.  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Includes the Nonesuch inner sleeve. Cover has a cutout hole, light wear and aging, and a promo sticker with a lifted corner.)

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.

A surprisingly great set of African tracks – surprising because they were recorded as part of an ABC documentary from the 60s, but end up having a really great ethnographic feel!

Yehudi Menuhin & Ravi Shankar

West Meets East
Angel, 1966. 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. LP, Vinyl record album

Kwame Nkrumah

Ninth Son
Columbia, Late 60s. Very Good+ Gatefold
Kwame handles vocals and guitar – and gets great backing from a host of US musicians who include Roland Hanna on piano, Ron Carter on bass, Billy Cobham on drums, Bilal Abdurahman on flute and sax – and lots of percussion from Ray Barretto , Chief Bey, Leo Mensah, and others!

Ere-Osirigi
Olatubosun Records Company (Nigeria), 1981. Very Good
Lots of heavy percussion and vocals – in the best yoruba style! Production is nice and raw – almost more ethnographic in approach. LP, Vinyl record album
Caravanonzon (Thailand), 1976. Near Mint- Gatefold
Not the Caravan group of Brit jazz rock fame, but a later Thai combo – working here in sharp protest of American military action in Southeast Asia during the 70s! The set's got a really unique regional flavor – a folksy blend of acoustic instruments and voices that often has guitar ... LP, Vinyl record album

Rene Bloch

Latin Discotheque
Clarion, Early 60s. Very Good+
One of the excellent overlooked Latin albums recorded by Atlantic during the 60's – most of which were never issued again. Rene Bloch leads a nice little orchestra through a lively set of mambos and Latin jazz tracks, with a set that's mostly instrumental, and which has a different sound, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Willie Bobo

Feelin So Good
Verve, Late 60s. Very Good
The mighty Willie Bobo's feelin plenty good here – so much so, he even sings a bit in addition to his work on percussion! Willie's got a nice raw vocal approach – one that works great for the Latin soul vibe of the rhythms – and titles include the groovers "Feelin' So ... LP, Vinyl record album
RCA, 1958. Very Good
A great little record – and a prime example of the strong Jewish/Latin crossover that was going on in the late 50s and early 60s. The record features the kind of crack cha cha sound that was bringing couples into the Palladium from Long Island, but it's also touched with occasional yiddish ... LP, Vinyl record album
