Hi-Fireworks

LP (Item 7051) Columbia, Mid 50s — Condition: Very Good-

One of the best early albums by Ferrante & Teicher! The record has less of the studio effects of their Westminster albums – but it does feature some killer firey twin piano pyrotechnics, with the same sort of goofy manipulation of the strings and piano innards as on the Soundproof album. Includes nice crazy versions of tracks like "Tabu", "Oye Negra", and a totally great version of "Caravan". Great groovy experimental piano craziness!  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Heavy original red label pressing, with deep groove. Cover has some staining on the back.)

Very Good - (minus)

  • Vinyl may be dirty, and can lack a fair amount of luster.
  • Vinyl can have a number of marks, either in clusters or smaller amounts, but deeper.
  • This is the kind of record that you'd buy to play, but not because it looked that great. Still, the flaws should be mostly cosmetic, with nothing too deep that would ruin the overall record.
  • Examples include a record that has been kept for a while in a cover without the paper sleeve, or heavily played by a previous owner and has some marks across the surface. The record should play okay, though probably with surface noise.

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.

United Artists, Early 60s. Near Mint-
One of the nicest albums that Ferrante & Teicher cut for United Artists!

Baroque Inevitable
Columbia, 1966. Very Good
One of our favorite entries into the strange 60s genre of baroque pop – arranged and produced with very hip touches from the great John Simon!
