Hardcore Vol 2

LP (Item 103224) Ryko/Superior Viaduct, 1970s — Condition: Sealed
Early art punk genius from Devo – the underground material from the pre-WB years – when they were still Ohio college students! Hardcore Volume 2 features 2LPs worth of 4- track recordings made in the mid 70s – darker, creepier synth punk than what you're used to from Devo – but still recognizable. These have a cruder sound than their pop years and a darker, chillier vibe that's pretty incredible. These guys are true originals and trailblazers and the formative work is well worth checking out! Volume 2 includes "Booji Boy's Funeral", "Can U Take It?", "The Rope Song", "Goo Goo Itch", an earlier version of "Be Stiff", "All Of Us", "Man From The Past", "Fountain Of Filth", "Doghouse Doghouse", "Shimmy Shake", "Working In The Coalmine", "Let's Go" and more,  © 1996-2023, Dusty Groove, Inc.


This is what it says, that the record is still held fast in shrink-wrap. We tend to be pretty suspicious about these things, so if the shrink-wrap doesn't look original, or if the record seems to have undergone some damage over time, we'll probably take it out of the wrapper to ensure that it's in good shape — which is why we don't have more of these. In some cases the shrink-wrap may be torn in spots, but if it's not possible the record has been taken out and played, the record will still qualify as "Sealed".

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.

Warner, 1982. Near Mint-
Hey Spud boy! You need this record. Definitely underrated in the grand scheme, Oh No! finds the boys rocking a much more straightforward, nerdy computer funk sound. It sort of takes a page from the 80s Kraftwerk playbook with the grid-patterned 80s computer tomfoolery, albeit with a far more ... LP, Vinyl record album
Ryko, 1988. Near Mint- Gatefold
A really unique album from The Residents – maybe one of their most unified records, and done in an unusual narrative style that has spoken word passages over their usual offbeat sounds! There's a nice current of wit in the record at times – and it's almost as if The Residents are ... LP, Vinyl record album
Uni, Late 60s. Near Mint-
A nice bit of funky rock from the late 60s – with touches of soul, and some jazzy horns in the mix too! The vocals get a bit white boy soul at most times – but the backing is pretty nice, and the group have a raw funky sound on the best tunes. There's a nice cover of "I Thank ...

Public Image Ltd.

Second Edition
Island, 1979. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
One of the greatest moments ever from the mighty John Lydon – a record that maybe blows away all other albums by Public Image – and which also stands strongly next to the work of the Sex Pistols, but in a very different way! Lydon is quite far from punk rock roots here – and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Michael Omartian

White Horse
ABC/Dunhill, 1974. Near Mint- Gatefold
One of the few albums ever issued under the name of Michael Omartian – better known for his work in the studio on a wide variety of 70s sessions! The album's got a style that definitely shows off some of Omartin's work for soul-based artists – but overall, it's kind of a rockish date ... LP, Vinyl record album

Rare Earth

One World
Rare Earth, 1971. Near Mint- Gatefold
A record that gave Rare Earth one of their biggest hits ever – their hard-burning "I Just Want To Celebrate" – a killer classic that played big on both sides of the fence, and which definitely established the group as a soulful force that kept on going! At some level, the set ... LP, Vinyl record album
Warner, 1974. Near Mint-
A really fantastic solo album from Alan Price – the consummation of a great run of records after Price made the early decision to leave The Animals and take off on his own! The songwriting is great, the vocals completely charming, and the instrumentation shifted to fit the needs of the words ... LP, Vinyl record album

Allman Brothers

Allman Brothers Band
Atco, 1969. Near Mint-
The legendary debut of The Allman Brothers – and a set that maybe set the tone for countless southern rock albums to emerge in the following decade!

Apple, 1973. Very Good
