Urubamba (Warner)

LP (Item 786767) Warner, 1974 — Condition: Near Mint-

The flute sound of the Andes gets a bit of a hip 70s twist – in this album produced by Paul Simon, caught somewhere between his version of "El Condor Pasa" and his later South African pop. The group's got a traditional Peruvian feel – pan flutes, percussion, and a bit of guitar – augmented by some larger production touches that expand the sound past the folkloric. Titles include "Campanas De Santa Cruz", "Buena Nueva", "Una", "Canten Cantores", and "Urumbamba".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(80s pressing. Cover has light wear and a promo stamp.)

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.

Not the Caravan group of Brit jazz rock fame, but a later Thai combo – working here in sharp protest of American military action in Southeast Asia during the 70s!

Arista Freedom, 1974. Near Mint-
Beautiful free-flowing work by Cecil Taylor – and a key album to document his solo piano genius in the 70s!
