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.

Nightfly
Warner, 1982. Very Good+
A bit of jazzy magic from Fagen – stepping out from the cover of Steely Dan after the Gaucho album, and sounding pretty darn great on his own! The record is almost nostalgic, going back to a 50s of Brubeck, abstract expressionism, and pre-Castro Havana – filled with images that are a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Remain In Light
Sire, 1980. Very Good+
Some of the most compelling grooves the Talking Heads ever recorded – a set that sparkles with imaginative touches, and railroads forward on a wave of complicated rhythms! The sound is brilliant throughout – a genre-less approach that sheds the group's earlier art nerd aesthetic for ... LP, Vinyl record album

Every Mothers' Son

Every Mothers' Son
MGM, 1967. Very Good+ Gatefold
Great grooves from Every Mothers' Son – cool, catchy numbers that have a wonderfully sunny feel overall – and a spare approach that's a bit different than most of the group's contemporaries! The drums seem much more up in the mix than usual for this sort of work – snapping with a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Miles Davis

Bitches Brew
Columbia, 1969. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
One of the few cases in jazz where an oft-played classic still resonates with power! The record itself is a key cap to Miles Davis' already-groundbreaking years of the 60s – a bold step forward, not just for his nascent electric sound, but also for jazz in general – and the benchmark ...

Chocolate City, 1981. Very Good+
Massively funky work from Cameo – a set that's right in the middle of their classic early run – and still quite strong on the bass-heavy grooves the group helped inspire in countless legions of imitators! The tightness of the set is incredible – moving at a pace that's simply ... LP, Vinyl record album
