Orient

LP (Item 928899) Kitty (Japan), 1979 — Condition: Near Mint-
Also available
Hiroshi Sato — Orient ... CD 18.99

Funky fusion from late 70s Japan – a set that's got a bit of vocals in the lead on some tracks, but which really opens up with some sweet keyboard-heavy instrumentation! There's almost a sharper, more soul-based groove here than on other Japanese sessions of the time – and the presence of vocals on about half the tracks give things a nice sense of structure and soul before the keyboards come in and really take off – some mighty nice work on a Yamaha CP-30, which creates some especially great sounds on the instrumental tracks! Sato plays keyboards, and so does Hidehiko Koike – and the record features some great percussion from the mysterious "Pecker". Titles include "Jo Do", "Picnic", "Kalimba Night", "Son Go Kuw", "Doncama", and "Sora Tobu Jutan".  © 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.

Jimmy Smith

Unfinished Business
Mercury, 1978. Very Good

Central Park North
Solid State, 1969. Very Good Gatefold
Excellent work from the team of Thad Jones and Mel Lewis – arguably one of their best albums from the late 60s, and a set that's got some really great funky big band numbers!

Atlantic, 1973. Very Good
A wonderful step forward for the team of Hall & Oates – and a set that has them moving more into soul than ever before!

Jackie & Roy

Time & Love
CTI, 1972. Near Mint- Gatefold
An excellent 70s set by Jackie & Roy – very different than their work of the 50s and 60s, with an approach that's much more far-reaching and complicated – a style that opens up their vocal talents majestically! Gone are the simpler ditties of earlier years, and in their place are ... LP, Vinyl record album

Look Of Love
A&M, 1967. Very Good
The genius of 60s pop is hardly summed up better by anyone else than Claudine Longet!

High Time
Atlantic, 1971. Very Good Gatefold
Motor City madness from the MC5 – a searing batch of work that still has the groups kicking out the jams whenever possible!
