Cruising Collection

LP (Item 127824) Castle, Late 50s/Early 60s — Condition: Near Mint-
2LP Gatefold
Includes 24 tracks by Link Wray, George Jones, Lowell Fulsom, Dion, Frankie Ford, Jessie Belvin, Etta James, the Cadets, Teen Queens, Chordettes, and the Everley Brothers.  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has a stip of tape on the top seam.)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor 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.

Machine Head
Warner, 1972. Very Good- Gatefold
One of the crowning classics from the early years of Deep Purple – and a set that will forever be remembered for giving the world the classic rock anthem "Smoke On The Water"!

Rolling Stones

Let It Bleed
London, 1969. Very Good-
Hard to go wrong with a Stones classic like this one – a record that really has the group hitting their late 60s stride, and coming across with a depth and power that really goes beyond their earlier releases! There's a sinister quality to the record right from the start – thanks to ... LP, Vinyl record album

Who

Tommy
Decca, 1970. Very Good- 2LP Gatefold
An amazing moment from The Who – and from the UK rock scene in general – as Tommy is one of the most fully-conceived concept albums ever recorded – a masterful effort that's still pretty hard to match all these many years later! Pete Townshend really knocked it out of the park ... LP, Vinyl record album

Horace Silver

Jody Grind
Blue Note, 1966. Good Gatefold
A fantastic turning point for the great Horace Silver – a set that's still got the soul jazz groove of some of his earlier 60s hits – but which also has the pianist really making magic with some of the younger players on the scene – in a lineup that features the young Woody Shaw ... LP, Vinyl record album
Vee Jay, 1961. Good
A real classic from Chicago soulman Dee Clark – and one of those crazy Vee Jay albums packaged in a cover with an image of young white love! Despite that cloying image, though, the record has a tremendous depth – and is a great illustration of the versatility of Clark at his best, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gloria Jones

Share My Love
Motown, 1973. Very Good+
A heavy heavy set from Gloria Jones – a record that features some killer Paul Riser arrangements that are right up there with the deepest Motown work of the early 70s! Jones' groove is always a bit different than most of her contemporaries – not the usual Motown bag, and really far-reac ... LP, Vinyl record album

Spinners
Atlantic, 1973. Very Good-
A landmark album from The Spinners – one that has the Detroit vocal group making a hip trip to the Philly scene – picking up a whole new sound and rich new energy in the process!
