Surfin' Safari

LP (Item 10552) Capitol, 1962 — Condition: Good+

The album that first launched the Beach Boys on an unsuspecting 60s scene – and a record that really raised the bar for rock and roll at Capitol Records! Although based around their early "Surfin Safari" hit, the album already shows that the group's got way more to offer than filler between the singles – a rich approach to their music that takes the 50s harmony styles of The Four Freshmen, and turns it on even more youthful, yearning themes – sometimes with a gimmick, sometimes with a surprisingly upfront sense of emotion. Titles include "Heads You Win Tails I Lose", "Cuckoo Clock", "Moon Dawg", "The Shift", "Ten Little Indians", "Chug A Lug", "Surfin Safari", and "Little Miss America".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Mono rainbow label pressing. Cover has some wear with a split bottom seam.)

Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl may be dirty, or have one outstanding flaw, such as a light residue, which could be difficult to clean.
  • May have marks on all parts, too many to qualify as Very Good-, or several deeper marks, but the record should still be ok for play without skips.
  • In general, this is a record that was played a fair amount, and handled without care. A typical example may be a record which has been heavily played by a DJ, and carries marks from slip cueing. Depending on the quality of the vinyl, may play with surface noise throughout.

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.
