Friends/Smiley Smile

LP (Item 357792) Brother/Reprise, Late 60s — Condition: Very Good+
2 LP Gatefold

A two-fer released in 1974 of these two post-Pet Sounds albums. Friends contains the lost classics like "Busy Doing Nothin", "Little Bird", "Be Here in the Mornin'", and "Diamond Head". Known by some as the Transcendental Meditation album, this one's filled with trippy beautiful songs about friends, love, and the little joys of life. Great stuff, and a treasure worth having if you like these guys at all. Fantastic stuff! Smiley Smile is the issued version of Smile, a classic – and even though some may gripe that it's missing the 50% extra material that was supposed to be on the Smile set, it's still utterly fantastic! Titles include "Vegetables", "Heroes & Villains", "Fall", "Little Pad", "With Me Tonight", and "Wind Chimes".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has light wear and some aging.)

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.

Beach Boys

In Concert
Brother, 1973. Very Good- 2LP Gatefold
A hipper concert than you might expect – recorded in 1973, and originally issued as a double LP. The band by this point includes Blondie Chaplin and the enigmatic Ricky Fataar – and in some way, the songs have a sincerity that's lacking from a lot of the studio albums at the same time. ...

Pet Sounds
Capitol, 1966. Very Good
One of the greatest records of all time – and don't you forget it!

Electric Prunes (with David Axelrod)

Release Of An Oath
Reprise, 1968. Very Good+
The second album done by David Axelrod for The Electric Prunes – and arguably the best! The album's a bit unusual, in that none of the original Prunes were actually working on the session – and instead, Axlerod's almost fully at the helm – putting together the set in a way that's ...

Fleetwood Mac (1975)
Reprise, 1975. Near Mint-
The album that brought the excellent, but heretofore underappreciated duo of Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks into the band – and pretty much changed the fabric of 70s rock! Older fans of the Peter Green and Bob Welch Brit blues eras of Fleetwood Mac may have been in for a shock initially, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jethro Tull

Thick As A Brick
Reprise, 1972. Very Good Gatefold
Jethro Tull's classic prog album–or is it a parody of a prog album? The LP-length "song", filled with dense lyrics, alternates between hard rock, English folk, and classical. LP, Vinyl record album

Randy Newman

Good Old Boys
Reprise, 1974. Near Mint-
A gem of an album from Randy Newman – a masterpiece of understated with from the mid 70s, and one of his most fully-conceived records for Warner Brothers! The album offers up a vision of the south, past and present, through Newman's eyes – eyes that are partially clouded by the ... LP, Vinyl record album
