LP (Item 979047) Segun Adewale (Nigeria), 1980s — Condition: Fair

(FAIR CONDITION. Cover has light wear and some marker.)

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.

West Meets East
Angel, 1966. Very Good+
Mostly "east" – as the violin of the famous solist comes into play with the sitar of Ravi Shankar, plus tabla and tanpura! The vibe's a bit like some of the best John Mayer albums, although less jazz. LP, Vinyl record album

Lots of heavy percussion and vocals – in the best yoruba style! Production is nice and raw – almost more ethnographic in approach. LP, Vinyl record album
Caravanonzon (Thailand), 1976. Near Mint- Gatefold
Not the Caravan group of Brit jazz rock fame, but a later Thai combo – working here in sharp protest of American military action in Southeast Asia during the 70s!

Treeg Salaam
Sublime Frequencies, Late 80s/Early 90s. Near Mint-
Great music from the personal archives of Group Doueh – tracks all originally recorded on cassette, but cleaned up nicely and presented in one of those great Sublime Frequencies packages! The first half of the set features shorter numbers by the group – really compelling numbers that ... LP, Vinyl record album

Science Fiction
Columbia, 1972. Near Mint-
One of Ornette Coleman's best recordings from the 70s – and like his other album for Columbia, quite a change from the freewheeling sounds he was blowing over at Blue Note! The style here is a bit more high concept, but in a good way – with all the edges that Coleman had developed from ... LP, Vinyl record album

Duke Ellington & Johnny Hodges

Back To Back
Verve, 1959. Very Good+
Duke Ellington makes a rare Verve appearance on this classic album – and works strongly in the mode of earlier sides recorded for the label by Johnny Hodges! There's a relaxed, small group feel going on here – one that's a bit different than some of the tighter Ellington work on ... LP, Vinyl record album
Savoy, 1952. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
Some of the best Art Pepper work you'll ever find! This 2LP set is filled with tracks that were originally cut for Savoy Records during the time of Art's Surf Ride album for that label, but which were lost on the cutting room floor for years. Pepper's tone is fantastic – with more of an ... LP, Vinyl record album
