American Antarai

LP (Item 807900) Caravanonzon (Thailand), 1976 — Condition: Near Mint-
Gatefold

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! The set's got a really unique regional flavor – a folksy blend of acoustic instruments and voices that often has guitar coming into play with violin, mouth organ, and flute – all to provide a hypnotic backdrop for the Thai language lyrics of protest! The album's got a compelling quality that goes way beyond the boundaries of language – possibly a bit more restrained than American protest records of the time, but still bold enough to get plenty of copies of the record (and the master tapes) destroyed by the repressive government of the time. Titles include "Up Raising", "Dangerous American Words", "Mr Kaum", "Come Together", "Common Please", and "Letter From Farmer".  © 1996-2021, 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.

Uni, Late 60s. Very Good+
Dreamy dreamy pop psych from Strawberry Alarm Clock – a great late 60s group who skirted the worlds of Sunshine Pop and more jamming garage rock!

The Ventures In Space is a really wonderful idea – especially given that the quartet had so much energy in their guitars at this point, they could easily make it to the moon!
