Columbia-Princeton Electronic Music Center

LP (Item 7780) Columbia, Late 60s — Condition: Very Good+

Great collection of early electronic music compositions – which are (in our humble opinion) still some of the best. Dark moody soundscapes by some of the early masters of the technology: Buloent Arel "Stereo Electronic Music No 1", Halim El-Dabh "Leiyla & The Poet", Vladimir Ussachevsky "Creation Prologue", Milton Babbitt "Composition For Synthesizer", Mario Davidovsky "Electronic Study No 1" and Otto Luening "Gargoyles".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Mono 2 eye Masterworks pressing. Cover has an ink stamp on each side, with a few library stickers on the back.)

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight 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.

Amazing work from Philip Glass – his second great opera, and a long-overdue follow-up to Einstein On The Beach – a set of music that's every bit as great as that groundbreaking work, but maybe even with stronger, fuller execution overall!

ES Mangione (Brazil), 1960s. Near Mint-
Some of the most important electro-acoustic music to come from the Brazilian scene in the 60s – recordings that are every bit as powerful as similar experiments from Europe at the time, particularly the revolutionary talents working in Paris!

Everest, 1965. Near Mint-
A very cool album that presents Cage at the height of his "chance" composition stage, and which features him and David Tudor playing a mixed bag of sounds on a sound system, recorded live at the Feigen-Palmer Gallery in LA. The work is the kind of stuff you always hear about with Cage, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Arista, 1964/1977. Near Mint-
Tremendous work from trumpeter Ted Curson – and one of the few records that shows up often in his oeuvre, but which is every bit as great as his rare and expensive albums! Side one features killer material from Curson's group with tenorist Bill Barron – three cuts recorded in Paris in ... LP, Vinyl record album
