Elektro Hafiz

LP (Item 818116) Pharaway Sounds (Spain), 2016 — Condition: Used
(€- || £- || ¥-) (approx.)
Also available
Elektro Hafiz — Elektro Hafiz ... LP 13.99

A cool set by an artist who's clearly influenced by all the older trippy styles issued by the Pharaway Sounds label – especially that imprint's strong focus on fuzzy psych from the Mid-East! In fact, the overall sound of this set's so cool, you could easily pass it off as some lost Turkish rock from the 70s – as there's just the right sort of psych guitar lines and local instrumental currents to take us back to the glory days of the Anatolian scene – right down to the percussion, which is free of any too-contemporary modes that might hurt the pedigree of the sound. A few cuts pick up some of the slight electro elements that were in the early 80s Turkish scene – and titles include "Hayat Bu Malum", "Belki Son Kez", "Ne Diyeyim", "Dubb I Akbar", "John Dere", and "Destur III".

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.

Used Vinyl Grades

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, please note that all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:

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.
