Dialoghi Del Presente

LP (Item 948409) EMI (Italy), 1977 — Condition: Near Mint-

(Orange vinyl reissue.)

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.

Cool album of avant garde percussion pieces, played by a European sextet dedicated to playing this kind of stuff.

Good recording of a number of Partch's best works – Castor & Pollux, The Letter, Bewitched, and Cloud-Chamber Music – done with Partch at the helm, leading the Gate 5 Ensemble in a set played on his instruments, and augmented by a chorus.

Berio himself conducts the London Sinfonietta in this nice set of avant garde vocal pieces. Some of the tracks are in the more traditional atonal range, but there's a great one called "Melodrama" that basically involves an extended apology from the singer to the audience! LP, Vinyl record album

John Coltrane

Impulse, 1965. Near Mint- Gatefold
A pure statement of being and essence – and one of John Coltrane's spiritual masterpieces from the 60s! The 1965 recording was one of Trane's most adventurous so far – as it featured just one album-length track, building up out of relatively free expressions from Coltrane in the studio ...
