Harry Partch — Delusion Of The Fury (with bonus LP) ... LP 44.99

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.)  © 1996-2017, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

Columbia, Early 60s. Very Good Gatefold
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 ...

Columbia, Late 60s. Very Good
Late 60s genius from electronician Morton Subotnick – a spare and extended piece that's filled with plenty of great analogue bits!
