Ceremony

LP (Item 30111) A&M, 1969 — Condition: Very Good+
Gatefold

An amazing collaboration between rock group Spooky Tooth and French composer Pierre Henry – a great meeting of the minds that comes out sounding pretty darn groovy! Henry's right at the height of his "Psyche Rock" experiments here – and he inflects the band's darker style with some playful electronics and other cool sounds – really tripping things out at times, and almost creating a slight undercurrent of electric funk at others! The record's almost much more in Henry's style of work than it is in the usual Spooky Tooth one – although the group definitely brings in a brooding energy of their own that really intensifies the record. The album's got an "electric mass" style, but is much wilder than other versions of that genre from the time – and titles include "Hosanna", "Confession", "Prayer", "Offering", and "Credo".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight 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.

Minnows
A&M, 1971. Near Mint- Gatefold
A wonderful mix of subtle soul and down home rock – the kind of rare magic that could often happen best in the hands of A&M during the early 70s!

A wonderful bit of funky folksy rock – one that has Shawn Phillips working with members of The Headhunters, including Paul Jackson, Bill Summers, and Mike Clark.
