Ambergris

LP (Item 83553) Paramount, Early 70s — Condition: Sealed
Gatefold

A genre-busting batch of tunes from Ambergris – a group with styles that range from Memphis soul, to New York Latin, to some of the heavier sides of the underground rock scene of the time! The ensemble features Latin Soul maestro Larry Harlow on piano, organ, and percussion – working with a rock-based group that still has lots of jazzy touches on their instrumentation. Steve Cropper produced the set – but in New York, not Memphis – and the whole thing explodes with a rich range of musical influences, all bubbling together in one pot! Includes the funky rock tracks "Soul Food" and "Forget It I Got It", plus "Endless Night", "Sunday Lady", "Home Groan", "Chocolate Pudding", and "Gotta Find Her".  © 1996-2020, 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.
