Go Little Honda!

LP (Item 21623) Mercury, Mid 60s — Condition: Very Good

Hard to believe there was a day when the word "Honda" referred exclusively to a motor bike – but that was the case, at the time the Hondells hit big with their groovy little title hit on this LP! As the album's cover attests, the group are all over the (then) popular bike – not entirely a motorcycle, not a scooter either – just perfect for jetting around the youthful scene of the early 60s! Tunes all have a strong surf-ish quality – great guitar work, catchy vocal hooks, and a presentation that owes plenty to The Beach Boys – but hey, that's more than OK with us! Titles include "Little Honda", "Haulin Honda", "Hot Rod High", "Rip's Bike", "Ridin Trails", and "Mean Streak".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.

Golden Scarab
Mercury, 1974. Near Mint-
Really adventurous early solo work from Ray Manzarek – bursting with creativity and a world of ideas on The Golden Scarab!

Like To Get To Know You
Mercury, 1968. Very Good Gatefold
Wild! If you don't know them, Spanky & Our Gang were one of the stranger pop groups of the late 60s – and they had a style that mixed sweet vocal stylings with bubble gum pop with groovy arrangements with a vague sense of nostalgia. This tiny little pop masterpiece was produced and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Peter Gabriel

Peter Gabriel 3 – Melt
Mercury, 1980. Very Good
Peter Gabriel at the top of his solo game – tight, focused, and coming across with a nice sort of edge – one that really sits nicely in the same late 70s generation that includes Bowie in Berlin, early Talking Heads, and some of the darker-minded work on the left side of the mainstream ...

Sonic Youth

Goo
DGC, 1990. Very Good
Sonic Youth's major label debut – which is, somewhat perversely, less insistently accessible as the preceding Daydream Nation – with slow-building guitar squalls and oddball noise pop in just about equal measure! Goo is self-produced, with some assistance from their fellow Geffen ... LP, Vinyl record album

Silver Metre

Silver Metre
National General, Early 70s. Very Good Gatefold
Pretty heavy rock from this early 70s British group – following very heavily in a Cream mode, with lots of deep bass, fuzzy guitars, and some kicking drums that almost sound like they might give out the odd break or two! Vocals are a bit tortured and a bit bluesy – but not bad overall, ... LP, Vinyl record album
