Of Snowdonia & Something Bells

LP (Item 922368) Magical Properties, 2004 — Condition: Near Mint-

A beautiful blend of beats, electronics, and well-chosen acoustic sources – including a bit of bassoon, and some acoustic guitar in unexpected places! These sorts of mixes are maybe a bit more familiar now – but back at the start, this album was a bit of a groundbreaker – maybe a bit overlooked, because it was slightly understated – but filled warmth and imagination that still delights all these many years later! Titles include "Dumbfound", "Pocket Watch Pulse", "A Sneaking Suspicion", "Snowed In", "Taking Wing", "Shinkansen", "Something Bells", "Hiraethus", "Was Waiting", and "Telling Meaning". Also features remixes – "Something Bells (Omid rmx)", "Was Waiting (featuring Busdriver)", and "Dumbfound (EdIT rmx)".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Pressed on clear green vinyl.)

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.
