Far Canal

LP (Item 149509) Transatlantic (UK), 1970 — Condition: Near Mint-
An excellent second set from this hip British trio – a record that's every bit as Hammond-drenched as their first, but which also has a more expansive sound! Leader Tim Hinkley seems to be getting a bit more confidence in his vocals – and really soars out over his own keyboard work in a wonderful way – giving the songs power that almost reminds us a bit of Greg Lake's voice at the start of his career, especially when he focused on more heavy material. Guitarist Bernie Holland is great, too – and handles bass too, plus a bit of acoustic guitar in the occasional more introspective moment. Drums from Peter Gavin are nice and heavy – almost heading towards funk rock at times – and titles include "Plastic Sh*t", "Ballad For Bridget", "Bath Sister", "Jump Bed Jed", and "O Paradiso". CD features the bonus tracks for the single versions of "Paint It Black" & "Rock n Roll Man".  © 1996-2023, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

A second solo set from Peter Bardens – recorded in the years before he rose to fame as the singer in Camel – and a set that does a nice job of uniting the two different strands of his career! There's moments here that show Bardens' abilities on the keyboard nicely – piano ... LP, Vinyl record album

Van Duren

Are You Serious?
Big Sound, 1977. Near Mint-
Memphis power pop from Van Duren – insistent and nearly as catchy as the midwest and west coast practitioners of the era – but with a bit more of an elastic, loose limbed, and measured approach to the songwriting! It's tough to get around a Big Star comparison given the Memphis roots, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Warner, 1979. Sealed
Devo's second album didn't scare the bejesus out of 70s rock fans in the way of their agitpop masterpiece debut, and the group's mainstream salad days of "Whip It" were still another year or two away, but nowadays we wouldn't trade Duty Now For The Future for just about any post punk ...

Tak Shindo

Edison, Late 50s. Near Mint-
A fantastic bit exotica from Tak Shindo – quite rootsy at times, in a way that really lives up to the cover – and which makes the whole thing a lot more striking than Shindo's other big album on Capitol at the time! The instrumentation is filled with heavy percussion and rhythms, often ... LP, Vinyl record album
