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.
