(€16.94 || £15.14 || ¥2234) (approx.)

One of the lasting classics from Harry Partch – a really Moondog-like record that's put together from a host of unique instruments designed by Partch himself! Although a somewhat serious piece in presentation, there's a really organic feel going on here – lots of spare, almost eerie percussion elements, mixed with voices – coming off with a strangely sinister undercurrent, almost that twisted hippie mode of the early 70s – with some definite appeal to the Wicker Man crowd! Danlee Mitchell directs the ensemble, under Partch's supervision – and titles include "On A Japanese Theme", "On An African Theme", "Sanctus An Entr'Acte", and "Exordium The Beginning Of A Web". This set also includes a full extra LP of "The World of Harry Partch", which includes examples of a whole bunch of cool instruments. (Includes the booklet. Box has light wear and a split on one bottom edge.)  © 1996-2017, 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.

Classic Harry Partch, and the kind of record that's a great introduction to his music. There's lots of Partch's weird invented instruments – like chromelodeon, diamond marimba, mazda marimba, cloud-chamber bowls, gourd tree, and the crazy "spoils of war". The titles are long, and ...

Candide, Mid 60s. Near Mint-
A haunting work of his that mixes electronics with piano and viola, for a beautiful spare sound that has lots of dark jagged moments.
