Lakukulala

LP (Item 930231) Kollington (Nigeria), 1991 — Condition: Fair

(Cover has some staining and pen.)

Fair

This is a grade we rarely use, as we try not to sell records in very bad condition, though in some rare cases we will list a record in such bad shape that it does not conform to the standards above. A "Fair" record will have enough marks or significant flaws that it does not even qualify as "Good", but is a copy you might consider for playing, if you're willing to put up with noise and/or flaws. An example might be a recording with surface noise so heavy that it is equal to the volume of the music. For records listed as "Fair", we will describe the extent of the condition in the comments.

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.

The special sound of the Javanese gamelan, made even more majestic here on recordings from the royal courts of central Java – beautifully captured here as part of the famous Nonesuch Records gamelan series of the 70s! The music here has a slow-building style that's maybe more formal than ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ajoo
Makossa, 1983. Near Mint-
A nice set from King Sunny Ade, licensed to the Makossa label, but in the style of his African recordings, featuring a number of shorter compositions strung together into side-longsuites. Hypnotic guitar lines and gentle diatonic melodies float over propulsive percolating percussion, with ... LP, Vinyl record album

Rolling Stones, Late 60s/1971. Near Mint- Gatefold
Back before he was found floating face-down in a swimming pool, ex- (or late-) Stones member Brian Jones put together this landmark bit of trippiness for the Rolling Stones label. Although the music is largely ethnographic, the whole thing's got this neo-colonialist hipster edge to it – as ... LP, Vinyl record album
Celluloid, Mid 70s/1985. Very Good+
The US issue of "Shuffering & Shmiling" – a fierce attack on religion, and one of Fela's best grooves from the 70s! The track's presented here in both vocal and instrumental versions – each of which runs for over 12 minutes long – in a skipping Afro Funk groove that' ... LP, Vinyl record album

Joy, Early 60s. Very Good-
An early album of South African soul – cut by Johannesburg's Manhattan Brothers, and issued in the US on Joy Records! The set's pretty darn great – a mixture of soulful and folksy touches, with lively larger arrangements that mix in percussion and flute to give the work a bit of a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Barclay (France), 1976. Very Good+
The cover and name of the band alone should say enough about this one – and about the crumbling French colonial network that fed the world music scene in 70s Paris! On the front, the band is jumping up gleefully in front of the Eiffel Tower – perhaps happy at the opportunities they've ... LP, Vinyl record album

Running Thangs
MCA, 1988. Near Mint-
One of those album's you have to love – not only because it's extra dope, but because it's a slept on gem by one of hip hop's pioneers – one that keeps it real in a sense that seems lost so many years down the line! Raw beats and ultimately fairly simple, but charismatic rhymes that ... LP, Vinyl record album
