Big Brother & The Holding Company

LP (Item 116179) Mainstream, 1967 — Condition: Very Good+
The first full album featuring the incredible voice of Janis Joplin, as the singer of Big Brother & The Holding Company! Even at this early point, it's clear that there's some really incredible things happening with this band. Originally released on Mainstream, the production is a bit thin compared to the bigger sounding records to come, which actually works incredibly well – as Janis's voice just tears right through in a really exciting way. The rawer Big Brother backdrop is great, too! Titles include "Easy Rider", "Bye, Bye Baby", "Intruder", "Women Is Losers", Moondog's "All Is Lonliness", and "Down On Me".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Late 70s Columbia Special Products pressing – with two extra songs listed on the labels. Cover has light discoloration on the left side.)

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight surface noise when played.

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.

Johnny Bristol

Atlantic, 1978. Near Mint-
Excellent smooth soul from Johnny Bristol – working here in territory that's a lot more sophisticated than his earlier work, in the same vein as smooth modern soul singers like Leroy Hutson, Leon Ware, or Prince Phillip Mitchell! The album's got a sweet warm feel – and the richness of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Atco, 1975. Very Good

Billy Larkin & The Delegates

Hold On!
World Pacific, Mid 60s. Good
Classic small combo organ grooves from Billy Larkin and his mighty Delegates! This LP has Billy moving into a bag in which he's covering more 60's soul hits (as he did in his later career for World Pacific), but the groove is still pretty solid, and the album's still got few good original tracks. ...
