Six Rocks

LP (Item 918146) Stones Throw, 2017 — Condition: Sealed

A record that's as stark as its cover – a very cool collaboration from LA beatmaker GB (Gifted & Blessed) and British singer Yeofi Andoh – done in a style that may well be opening up whole new frontiers for underground cosmic soul! The record's got a nicely rough vibe – songs that emerge equally from the beats and vocals, but never with a polished feel at all – almost as if they're being improvised in the studio, as both artists try to bring their best to the proceedings, while also respecting the space of the other. The album's definitely one of the most offbeat in years from Stones Throw – but we mean that in the best way possible – and the whole thing is a great antidote to the kind of soul that's too easily fed up the food chain from the underground to the mainstream. Titles include "Fated", "Best", "We Like The Dark", "Real Enough To Be", "Six Rocks", "Roles", and "Courting Sunshine".  © 1996-2019, 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.
