LP, Vinyl record album

(€7.07 || £6.15 || ¥888) (approx.)

An undisputed masterpiece, and a record we never tire of hearing – unabashedly the inspiration for our years of jazzy exploration as adults, even though it was probably the closest thing we ever got to the genre as wee lads! Walter Becker & Donald Fagan raise their already-high bar to new heights here – creating one of those rare records that flows together so beautifully, it's hard to remember where some songs begin and others end. There's a sense of perfection in everything about the record – the sound, the songs, the instrumentation – all woven together beautifully without any sense of self-consciousness. One majestic flow that starts with "Black Cow", and runs through classics that include "Aja", "Deacon Blue", "Peg", "Home At Last", "I Got The News", and "Josie". (80s pressing. Cover has a Super Savers logo.)  © 1996-2017, 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.

ABC, 1972. Very Good Gatefold
The first album from Steely Dan, and already a leading light in the world of 70s rock!

Royal Scam
ABC, 1976. Near Mint-
My god, what a record! This one's genius through and through – a set that sometimes gets eclipsed in the brilliance to come, but which is easily one of our favorites ever by Steely Dan!

Probe/ABC, 1969. Very Good Gatefold
Sublime early work from Robert Wyatt and crew – a psychedelic accented jazz rock classic that never gets old – and a visionary set that inspired a generation!

Birtha
ABC, 1972. Very Good- Gatefold
Funky rock from this all-girl group – done with lots of heavy guitars, and a really full-on and righteous style that's pretty darn soulful! The drums on the set are pretty nice overall – snapping and crackling under the tunes with a nice breaking kind of sound – and tiltes ... LP, Vinyl record album
Wool
ABC, 1969. Very Good Gatefold
A wicked batch of funky work from Wool – a combo led by Ed and Claudia Wool, who really hit the hippest end of the late 60s rock mode ont his set! The title is filled with jamming riffs and strutting rhythms – not so much break-heavy rock, but work that has an overall funky feel all ... LP, Vinyl record album
