Right On Track

LP (Item 116832) Penn Central, 1979 — Condition: Sealed
A really obscure little set from a group who recorded in Erie, PA at the end of the 70s – but who never issued this music at the time! Penn Central often have an approach that's tight and smooth enough to be on the coast – maybe indie AOR, with some nice slinky touches – but other tracks mix in some rougher currents that almost feel like indie work at the start of the decade – equally well-crafted original material, but with a nice sense of variety that really keeps things interesting – and which sounds nothing at all like 1979 in the rest of the world! The group had one cut – "Sometimes" – issued on the Pittsburgh Rocks compilation in 1980 – but here's all the rest of their music, with titles that include "Goodbye Morning", "See You Again Someday", "Make It Happen", "I'll Sing Your Song Goo", "Glass Angel", and "Want You To Stay".  © 1996-2023, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Recent German reissue on Tramp, limited to 500, still sealed with hype sticker, with light sticker remnant.)

Sealed

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.

Flying Lizards
Virgin, 1979. Very Good+
A new wave crossover classic from The Flying Lizards – one of the quirkiest groups of their era! The group were European, but have a sound that resonates strongly with the most playful post-disco work of the New York scene of the time, particularly the acts on Ze Records – a groove ...

Laurie Anderson

Big Science
Warner, 1982. Very Good+
One of the greatest albums to come from the New York underground of the early 80s – even if it was a relatively big "hit" on a major label! Laurie Anderson is in perfect form here – drawing on a strong tradition of avant garde performance, but without any of the indulgences ... LP, Vinyl record album

Beatles

Revolver
Apple/EMI, 1966. Very Good+
Maybe our favorite Beatles album ever – a key set that bridges the catchiness of the early years and the sharper ideas of later albums – with a slightly sinister undercurrent that really keeps things fresh! The album's got some great early psych in spots, offset with wonderfully mature ... LP, Vinyl record album

Fleetwood Mac

Tusk
Warner, 1979. Very Good+ 2LP
Overblown for its time, and almost crushed under its own weight – but a record that's lasted surprisingly well over the years! Titles include "Sara", "Tusk", "Walk A Thin Line", "That's Enough For Me", "Brown Eyes", "Save Me A Place" ... LP, Vinyl record album

Beach Boys

Beach Boys' Party
Capitol, 1965. Very Good+ Gatefold
A really cool little album from the Beach Boys – a set that definitely takes its "party" title seriously, in a way that has the group singing in a somewhat live and spontaneous manner! There's sort of a "live in studio" feel here – with production that's less ... LP, Vinyl record album
Dunhill, 1966. Very Good+
(Stereo black label pressing, in the amended cover.) LP, Vinyl record album

Charles Earland

Living Black
Prestige, 1970. Very Good
A stone cold live date from Charles Earland – recorded in Newark, at just the sort of club where he got his start! The tracks are quite long and openly grooving – even more so than Charles' killer studio sets from the time – and there's a bit of a harder edge here too, thanks ... LP, Vinyl record album

Miles Davis

On The Corner
Columbia, 1972. Very Good+ Gatefold
A sublime bit of Miles Davis electric funk – one of the best-remembered electric sets from the 70s, and for good reason too! The tracks are long, the jams are hard, and the whole thing has a lot more funk than some of the noise you'd get on other Miles albums of the time – thanks to ... LP, Vinyl record album

Brainstorm

Stormin'
Tabu, 1977. Very Good
A set that definitely lives up to its title – a stone stormer from Brainstorm – one of the tightest funky ensembles of their generation, and one of the few who could go deep while still laying down a groove! The set's got a perfect balance of modes – enough of the appeal of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ray Bryant

Slow Freight
Cadet, 1966. Very Good+
A killer album by soul jazz pianist Ray Bryant! The title track, "Slow Freight", is an amazing 10 minute groover that moves at a very slow pace (just like a freight train), and which features some very cool ad-lib talking by Paul Serrano – a pretty groovy touch that really adds a ...
