Blue Nile Group

LP (Item 934256) Tempo, 1969 — Condition: Near Mint-

(Pressed on red vinyl. Cover is lightly bent near the opening.)

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.

A&M, Early 70s. Near Mint-
A surprisingly nice album for A&M, and one in which Letta's funky African soul style gets a bit more of an LA studio sound. The record features backing by a lot of well-known funky studio players, and Herb Alpert produced the record with a nice sound that still keeps Letta's rich voice in ... LP, Vinyl record album
Nonesuch, Early 70s. Near Mint-
An excellent companion to David Lewiston's other recordings of Balinese gamelan and monkey chants, this set similarly captures the rippling beauty of the gong orchestra. Unlike the Javanese style, which Nonesuch made numerous volumes documenting, the Balinese approach is more aggressive, with a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Nonesuch, 1977. Near Mint-
Incredible sounds from Java – where the use of the gamelan is often somewhat more brooding, and slower-paced than in Bali – and the sounds flow out in these gentle waves that are completely hypnotic! The album is wonderfully recorded by Robert E Brown – one of his key gamelan ... LP, Vinyl record album

This is perhaps the first record to really have Roy stretching out ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dash, 1978. Near Mint-
The only album ever issued in the US by European soul singer Asha Pulthi – an artist who was doing some great spacey funk in the mid 70s, then made a strong shift into tighter grooves in the disco years! This album's a great blend of Asha's earlier vocal style and some of the newer clubby ... LP, Vinyl record album
