Lights Out: San Francisco

LP (Item 1583) Blue Thumb, 1972 — Condition: Near Mint-
2LP Gatefold

Strange compilation focusing on a bunch of San Francisco rock and funk groups produced by Abe "Voco" Kesh. This is noteworthy for a bunch of early Sylvester stuff (and it's good, too), plus some funky stuff by Clifford Coulter. Also includes work by John Lee Hooker and Linda Tillery. Lots of trippy funk and electronics spread over the course of 2 LPs. Tracks include "Lights Out", "Voco", "Cleo's Back", "Dead", "Why Was I Born", "Brother Antrainik", "Dina", "20/20 Vision", and more.  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has light wear and cut corner.)

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.

Dave Mason's first solo album – and a pretty a great one! Alone Together wasn't a huge hit back in the day, but man is a ever a pleasing set.

Sunforest
Blue Thumb, 1973. Sealed
Later work by Tom Rapp – recorded after his early years with Pearls Before Swine, when Rapp was working on his own as a singer/songwriter, and really expanding his own unique musical vision. The album's got surprisingly full backings – very different than the rough folksy touches of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Love

Out Here
Blue Thumb, Early 70s. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
A strange album when put next to Love's Elektra records – and one that's not without its weaknesses – but the band's got a kick-ass drummer, and the record's filled with more than a few tasty moments that have a bit of funk in them. Layered with Arthur Lee's hip guitar, the sound is ... LP, Vinyl record album

Electric Prunes (with David Axelrod)

Mass In F Minor
Reprise, Late 60s. Near Mint-
A beautifully baroque batch of tracks, written and arranged for the Electric Prunes by the great David Axelrod – a really groundbreaking mix of modes that had quite an impact back in the late 60s! The record shows Axelrod's perpetual fascination with the spiritual – mixed with that ... LP, Vinyl record album
Epic, Late 60s. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
Some of the most heavenly pop ever recorded – and a wonderful 2LP collection of work from the later years of The Zombies!

Iggy & The Stooges

Raw Power
Columbia, 1973. Very Good+
One of the wildest records of the early 70s – and it's still pretty darn hard to argue with the power of this one – even if the meddling of the producers are nearly as legendary as the album itself! There's still such a manic energy the original release mix – one that clearly ... LP, Vinyl record album

Donovan

Hurdy Gurdy Man
Epic, 1968. Sealed
Easily one of the headiest Donovan albums of the 60s – a record that moves past the simple psychedelic pop of earlier hits, and into a range of mind-expanding themes and styles! There's a cerebral quality here that seems to take hold even on the simpler, catchier tunes – a deeply ... LP, Vinyl record album

John Cale

Paris 1919
Reprise, 1973. Near Mint-
Beautiful work from John Cale – proof that in his years after The Velvet Underground, he was one hell of a talented solo act! The songs are all wonderfully written, and supported by orchestrations that are light, but which bring some overall depth to the record – a sense of class, but ... LP, Vinyl record album
