Chronophagie - The Time Eaters

LP (Item 8806) Columbia, Late 60s — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album

Jacques Lasry plays a whole set of spooky sounds on his own sound sculptures. Designed for public interaction with shapes and sounds, these cool little metallic things have a wild sound to them, and it's all acoustic, made just by them banging on the various parts of the sculptures. Some of the cuts have some extra voice, flute, tabla, and bass violin, and the sound is very cool throughout. (360 Sound stereo pressing. Cover has a radio station track list sticker.)  © 1996-2017, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

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!

Classic mid-period Reich – with an approach that's a lot more sophisticated than the earlier works, but a sound that's still filled with whimsey and surprise!

Improvisations For Theremin & Piano
Butterscotch, 2014. Near Mint- Gatefold
Really beautiful sounds – and a record that's far more haunting than you might expect! The record's not just piano notes alongside sci fi sound effects – and instead has this really subtle use of theremin, so that the instrument almost comes across more like a cello, or acoustic bass ...
