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.

I Am Not Afraid
Blue Thumb/Chisa, 1974. Very Good+
An excellent little record from Hugh Masekela – cut right during that perfect time when he was mixing soul, funk, and just the right amount of jazz to keep things real!

Astor Piazzolla

Histoire Du Tango
Polydor (France), 1973. Near Mint- 2LP
An unusual double-length set from this great Argentine modernist – not his own compositions, but works from the history of tango – but all delivered with the kind of edge that Astor was bringing to his own music in the 70s! LP, Vinyl record album

Some of the heaviest work to come from the African scene of the 70s – the initial offering of the Ngozi Family – a group who clearly take strong inspiration from the Cream years of the UK scene, but who also come across with a grittier, punkier vibe overall – thanks to lean, ...

Roots Of Rhythm
Jubilee, Late 50s. Very Good

Soundway (UK), 2017. Sealed 2LP Gatefold
One of those records that definitely lives up to its cover – as it's not only a great mish-mash of styles, it's also got some 80s instrumental currents that might come as a surprise if you know other records on the Soundway label! The work recasts older elements of Ugandan music with old ... LP, Vinyl record album

A set that wasn't initially conceived as a full album by Gil Scott-Heron – but one that's come to be an essential part of his catalog, thanks to the always-relevant title theme! The album's actually a classic collection of work from the early years of Gil Scott-Heron at the Flying Dutchman ... LP, Vinyl record album
Smash, 1966. Very Good+
Possibly the best instrumental album that James Brown cut for Smash!
