Philip Ranelin & Wendell Harrison - A Message From The Tribe SOLD

Tribe Records

"A message from the tribe" is now an all time classic spiritual jazz lp. This is one of the first release on their own label from 1973. The album is consistent from the beginning to the end. It contains the "modal coltrane-like" improvisations oriented in the sonic detroit jazz funk style tracks, "Beneficient" and "how do we end all of this madness", the policized message "What we need" and "Angela's Dilemma" sung by Jeamel Lee and more in the deep afrocentric avant garde way, "Wife" and "Merciful".
The record shows some light marks but plays fine with some occasional light clicks. The cover has a seam split (9cm) on one corner, a light ring wear on the front and back cover, and a light moisture wear at the bottom of the back cover.
I sell the original 1st press, now hugely in demand and very hard to catch....

Wolfgang Dauner / Eberhard Weber / Jurgen Karg / Fred Braceful - S/T SOLD

Calig

Some records are unclassifiable, impossible to put them in a categorie, this german project from 1969 under the direction of Wolfgang Dauner is one of those mutant sounds!!! But this strange lp is also very creative, from modern jazz, sonic diy to trippy jazz funk, this concept lp is rich by the diverse sound palette it offers. Listen to the psych jazz funk track called "beat" with some weird sound experimentations and the modern jazz "Pamukale"!!!
The record is in superb shape, looks shiny with only some superficial marks. There is one sticker on one label, light wear on two corners and the back cover, and two stickers on the front cover.
