Bad Mr Mike

LP (Item 155460) Mississippi, 2016 — Condition: Near Mint-
The passage of years hasn't dampened the genius of Michael Hurley at all – and in some ways, he's able to be even more personal, more expressive than ever – yet in even gentler styles than before! At some level, the record's a masterpiece of acoustic guitar lines, ala John Fahey or Robbie Basho – cut from similar cloth, in a post-historic way – but at another level, Hurley's use of vocals gives the whole thing a home-crafted sense of tune that opens a window to Michael's inner psyche, and reminds us that years before Bonnie Prince Billy or any other contemporary songsmiths, Hurley was doing it all on his own. Titles include "The Moon Song", "Kentucky 3", "Tender Is The Guitar", "Boone & Jocko", "Lo Bonney", and "Moonman Newfie".  © 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.

Really wonderful work from the young Michael Hurley – one of his first records to get somewhat wide exposure, thanks to the help of Jesse Colin Young, who signed Hurley up to his Raccoon label at Warner Brothers!
