79rs Gang

LP (Item 745179) Sinking City, 2015 — Condition: Near Mint-

A highly percussive New Orleans group with a feel that's right from the streets – just the kind of live, spontaneous energy you'd expect from the "Indian parade" image on the front! Most instrumentation comes from handheld percussion – the kind you'd use when marching down the street – and the vocals are equally rhythmic, and filled with call/response passages that flow from the group members beautifully! The whole thing's wonderfully free of any New Orleans cliches – and feels more like the kind of special music you'd hear in the city when you stumble around a distant corner, and happen upon a special, undiscovered group. Titles include "Drama", "Fungal Alafia Ashay", "Shallow Water", and "Indian Red".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Includes insert.)

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 lost bit of jazzy soul from the late 70s – produced by Wayne Henderson with the same great style as his other Fantasy Records sets at the time!

The Nite Liters' classic first album, and a monster batch of funky instrumentals that we'd put up there with the great Meters records on Josie, or the classic JBs LPs on People.
