Percussion Music LP With Black Dots On Cover

Percussion Music LP of Childhood With Black Dots On Cover Filter. Recently, when my mom sold her house, I was sad to learn that she garage sale-disposed on an LP I was hoping to rediscover [+]

Unfortunately, all I, or she, remembers of this disk was that the cover was white with rows of black dots; that the music was percussion-oriented; and that it was probably released some time in the 1960's.

Perhaps someone whose mom hasn't garage sale'd-away the same disc can tell me it's name?

Big black dots, or little black dots?

Somehow I doubt PP is thinking of the Bad Brains.

Jessamyn. Wow. Little black dots. I'll look for the Volume 1 (probably not called "Volume 1" of that set. Wow.

(the cover looks familiar, but that's not it. I'm very impressed.

Found it, at least as an image! Thanks.

Wow, that's pretty amazing, I thought this would be a completely lost cause.

AskMe continues to amaze me.

besides the fact that the LP didn't get released until the mid-90s, although the recordings are from 1979

the Bad Brains album was an example of "big dots." the question was an example of "the reference interview" and the fact that one of the examples happened to be one removed from what PP was actually looking for was a complete coincidence. It was #10 on a Google search for album "black dots" percussion

That's funny, Paris, because I thought immediately, "hey, Enoch Light and his Light Brigade, but the dots on MY mom's album weren't black"...but it was just another album by the same group!

Enoch Light is great dinner-making music.

And, apparently, music to see dots to.

(cut to me in a smoking jacket placing Enoch Light on the record player, and then slow-dancing with a dalmation)
