Javanese Court Gamelan Vol 3

LP (Item 75356) Nonesuch, 1977 — Condition: Near Mint-

The special sound of the Javanese gamelan, made even more majestic here on recordings from the royal courts of central Java – beautifully captured here as part of the famous Nonesuch Records gamelan series of the 70s! The music here has a slow-building style that's maybe more formal than some of the more spontaneous gamelan work from Bali – very careful to let each tone of the gongs, tuned drums, and other instruments flow out and resonate in the space of the recording, as each player slowly adds to the mix and creates this hypnotic flow of waves of sound. The approach is completely sublime – and the record is one we go back to again and again over the years – filled with amazing sounds on titles that include "Gendhing Prabu Mataram", "Gendhing Sumyar", "Gendhing Rangu Rangu", and "Golek Lambangsari".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.
