Ajoo

LP (Item 76396) Makossa, 1983 — Condition: Very Good-

A nice set from King Sunny Ade, licensed to the Makossa label, but in the style of his African recordings, featuring a number of shorter compositions strung together into side-longsuites. Hypnotic guitar lines and gentle diatonic melodies float over propulsive percolating percussion, with interjections from talking drum popping up here and there. Includes "Ajo Ni Mo Re", "Pegan Pegan", "Oluwa Lagboju Le", "Gbeyogbeyo", "Penkele", "Ewele" and "Tolongo".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has some ringwear and a name written in pen on front.)

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.

One of Hugh's most compelling records from the time – cut live at the Whiskey A Go Go, with a jazzy edge that really shows him growing a lot as a musician.
