Arktis Tapes

LP (Item 991331) Bonn-Bons (Germany), 1975 — Condition: Near Mint-
Also available
Arktis — Arktis Tapes ... LP 29.99

The second album from this obscure German group – and one that definitely gets the title right, as the material here is pulled from recordings the band made on their own – woodshedding in the studio away from the mainstream! Despite their obscurity, Artkis has a sound that could have made them huge at the time – hard rock guitars with maybe an earlier blues rock inspiration, turned into much more ferocious territory – and a strong female lead singer who gives these guys a very unique vibe. The guitar work alone is worth the price of admission – and titles include "High Fly", "Pique Nique", "Dan 1", "Deep In", "New Rock", and "Small Talk".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(German reissue on Long Hair.)

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.

Philips, 1962. Good
A lost bossa jazz classic from Dizzy Gillespie – recorded at a time when Lalo Schifrin was working in his combo!

A nice album of soul tracks that was Madeline's follow up to the big hit of the title. Recorded in the UK, with a pretty good backing, and a good mix of originals and obscure pop stuff.
