Sounds Of Africa

LP (Item 80594) Verve/Forecast, Mid 60s — Condition: Sealed
Temporarily Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album

✈
❔

A surprisingly great set of African tracks – surprising because they were recorded as part of an ABC documentary from the 60s, but end up having a really great ethnographic feel! The album features work from all over the continent – recordings from Nigeria, Cameroon, Congo, Senegal, Mali, Uganda, Ethiopia, and Tanzania – and most of them are spare instrumentals, with either heavy percussion or some occasional stringed instrumentation.  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Sealed

This is what it says, that the record is still held fast in shrink-wrap. We tend to be pretty suspicious about these things, so if the shrink-wrap doesn't look original, or if the record seems to have undergone some damage over time, we'll probably take it out of the wrapper to ensure that it's in good shape — which is why we don't have more of these. In some cases the shrink-wrap may be torn in spots, but if it's not possible the record has been taken out and played, the record will still qualify as "Sealed".

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.
