Peace & Love

LP (Item 922502) Wild Flower (Jamaica), 1974 — Condition: Near Mint-

Hypnotic, spiritually resonant music from Rastafarian singer & hand drummer Ras Michael's Dadawah – with these organic, echoey, atmospheric drums, bass and trippy bits of keyboards – providing a strong, spacious backdrop for the freedom-seeking lyricism! It's very unique stuff, grounded in the spiritual vibes and earthy instrumentation, and feeling akin to some of the freely ambitious soul jazz of the time in spirit, with the roomiest of reggae rhythms. Titles include "Run Come Rally", "Seventy-Two Nations", "Zion Land" and "Know How You Stand", all on the longer side, and ultra mesmerizing.  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Recent UK reissue on Dug Out.)

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.
