Skin Tight

LP (Item 19538) Stax, 1973 — Condition: Sealed
Just Sold Out!

LP, Vinyl record album

❔

The second Stax album by Skin Alley – and the one that was actually recorded in Memphis with some hip and soulful production by Don Nix! This set's even funkier than the group's first for Stax – and grooves around with a sound that's got more soul influences than some of the jazz rock sounds on the other album. Titles include "The Heap", which has a nice breakbeat on the intro, plus "Instrumental", which has a good wah wah sound, and some choppy funk grooves! Also includes "If I Only Had The Time", "At A Quarter To One", "Surprise Awakening", "Broken Eggs", "maverick Woman Blues", "What Good Does It Do?" and "Mr Heavy".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Sealed original US pressing! Cover has a small cutout hole.)

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.

A crossover Latin Funk classic – with the kind of soaring guitar/organ grooves that were the brilliant sound of the 70s for the West Coast scene, a whole new way of playing Latin Soul that blew away the New York sound of the late 70s. Titles include "Persuasion", "Evil ... LP, Vinyl record album

The last of the "revival" King Crimson from the early 80s – featuring the lineup that included Robert Fripp, Adrian Belew, Bill Bruford, and Tony Levin.

The most polarizing of John Lennon's post Beatles ouvre – the strident, Spector-produced, sprawling mess that is Some Time In New York City – a record that has too much of every idea John & Yoko had at the time, which makes it all the more fascinating after all these years!

Nashville Skyline

Dylan's wonderful foray into country rock – the great Nashville Skyline!
