Incredible sounds from the postwar avant scene in France – a small record, but one that's had huge impact over the years! This 3 track EP features compositions based around the "structures sonores" of Jacques Lasry and Bernard Baschet – both of whom create and play these amazing Harry Partch-esque instruments that are part sculpture, part percussive tools – very groundbreaking at the time, and still pretty amazing after all these years. Even more than the instruments, though, the high point of the album is the way that the orchestrations and sonic structures work together – as the whole thing feels like an otherworldly batch of space songs that recalls some of Moondog's work, and some of the other early Musique Concrete composers from the 50s. Tracks include "La Mort Du Clown", "La Danse Du Resort" and "Bolide".  © 1996-2020, 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.

Blue Note, Late 60s. Near Mint-
Two of Horace's best late 60s groovers – both done with a hard-rolling soul jazz approach! "Psychedelic Sally" is particularly nice – with a strutting little hook that made the track one of the bigger Blue Notes of the time! 7-inch, Vinyl record
Stax, 1971. Very Good
Funky funky Rufus! This one's a monster – with great drums, rolling bass, and riffing guitar that scratches up the whole dark track to keep it nice and funky! Rufus' vocals hardly get in the way, and the cut's one of his funkiest ever! 7-inch, Vinyl record
King, Early 60s. Very Good
This is Hank's first version of the track, not the one produced by James Brown. That doesn't stop it from being nice and soulful, though – with a great rolling R&B groove that made it one of his best early moments! Killer vocals on both sides, too! 7-inch, Vinyl record

The Count takes on some 60s soul numbers – and the results are great! "Green Onions" is done here with piano instead of organ – over a slow-stepping, very sly groove that's got a real Soul Cargo sort of feel! 7-inch, Vinyl record
