Toy Planet

LP (Item 920324) Spoon (Germany), 1981 — Condition: Near Mint-

A great little record from a pretty surprising team – Can's electronic wizard Irmin Schmidt, and European sound library/jazz genius Bruno Spoerri! The whole thing's got the playful feel of some of Spoerri's best sound library experiments – a vibe that's quirky, but also somewhat groovy, too – although more in an 80s way than some of Bruno's 60s and 70s sounds – mostly from the choice of instruments used by Schmidt. Spoerri plays sopranino and tenor saxes, as well as a bit of electronics – although most of those are handled by Irmin, who seems to almost be influenced here by the German cold wave of the time, particularly some of the better groups on the Atatak label. Titles include "Yom Tov", "Springlight Rite", "When The Waters Came To Life", "The Seven Game", and "Two Dolphins Go Dancing".  © 1996-2019, 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.
