L'Epopee Du Mandingue

LP (Item 966082) Editions Syliphone Conakry (Guinea), 1972 — Condition: Very Good-

(Cover has bent corners, some wear and aging, and some pen and an ink stamp on back.)

Very Good - (minus)

  • Vinyl may be dirty, and can lack a fair amount of luster.
  • Vinyl can have a number of marks, either in clusters or smaller amounts, but deeper.
  • This is the kind of record that you'd buy to play, but not because it looked that great. Still, the flaws should be mostly cosmetic, with nothing too deep that would ruin the overall record.
  • Examples include a record that has been kept for a while in a cover without the paper sleeve, or heavily played by a previous owner and has some marks across the surface. The record should play okay, though probably with surface noise.

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.

Hugh Masekela

Colonial Man
Casablanca, 1976. Sealed
A later album from Hugh Masekela – but still plenty darn hip, way more so than most of the other artists on the Casablanca label at the time! Hugh's South African groove is still very firmly in place here – mixed with a slightly warmer LA soul sound, but expanded with loads of great ... LP, Vinyl record album

Nonesuch, 1977. Near Mint-
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

King Sunny Ade & His African Beats

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

Miles Davis

Bitches Brew
Columbia, 1969. Very Good- 2LP Gatefold
One of the few cases in jazz where an oft-played classic still resonates with power! The record itself is a key cap to Miles Davis' already-groundbreaking years of the 60s – a bold step forward, not just for his nascent electric sound, but also for jazz in general – and the benchmark ...

Ear Wax/Wonderland, Late 70s. Sealed
An obscure little funky group from Flint, Michigan, one with a tight ensemble sound that's very much in the Earth Wind & Fire mode – complete with a really great horn section, plenty of bass-heavy grooves a the bottom, and a relatively spiritual feel that comes through strongly on the ...
