About this Item

Not a book but a 10-inch "nonbreakable" 33-1/3 rpm vinyl LP, Capitol L-299, near mint vinyl in a very-good-plus glossy cardboard jacket with small brown tape ghost to verso. Yma Sumac was the South American singer of extraordinary four-octave vocal range who began as a folk singer in the more traditional mold, but who was taken under the wing of arranger Moises Vivanca, decked out in exotic garb, and promoted in North America as an "Inca princess," which could presumably be equally true or untrue of any native of that continent. The pair formed a leading part of the "exotic" musical movement of the 1950s, seeking some kind of liberation from stultifying Eurocentric musical norms, a demand which was soon to find an outlet in "rock 'n roll." Catalogs $120. Here reduced from $45. Bookseller Inventory # 003453
