96 Tears

LP (Item 364233) Cameo, Late 60s — Condition: Sealed

A garage psych classic from Question Mark & The Mysterians – the kind of once-in-a-lifetime album that still sounds pretty darn great today! The group are known, of course, for their huge hit "96 Tears" – and the rest of the album's done in a very similar mode – with lots of thin guitars, that wild tinny organ sound, and some great rough-hewn vocals from Question Mark himself! Includes some great originals like "I Need Somebody", "You're Telling Me Lies", "Ten O'Clock", "Set Aside", and "Upside" – as well as a great version of "Stormy Monday"!  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(180 gram vinyl pressing on Real Gone Music from 2011. Shrinkwrap has a promo sticker on back.)

Sealed

This is what it says, that the record is still held fast in shrink-wrap. We tend to be pretty suspicious about these things, so if the shrink-wrap doesn't look original, or if the record seems to have undergone some damage over time, we'll probably take it out of the wrapper to ensure that it's in good shape — which is why we don't have more of these. In some cases the shrink-wrap may be torn in spots, but if it's not possible the record has been taken out and played, the record will still qualify as "Sealed".

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.

Gentle Giant

Acquiring The Taste
Vertigo, Early 70s. Very Good Gatefold
A perfectly balanced little set from Gentle Giant – a record that's progressive, but never overly jamming – jazzy, but still rock-based enough to contain some great straight ahead tunes – and whimsical, but never too flowery or hippy dippy! Gentle Giant were one of the few who ... LP, Vinyl record album

John Lennon

Imagine
Apple, 1971. Near Mint-
Not the out there primal scream of Plastic Ono, and more of an impeccably produced, easy to love landmark from John Lennon! The title track, beautiful as it is, is so heavily ingrained into rock & roll myth making machine that it's become too easy to overlook how great most of the songs on the ... LP, Vinyl record album
London, 1967. Very Good Gatefold
A record that was initially thought by some as a cheap cash-in on the Sgt Peppers concept – but an album that, to us, really helped set The Rolling Stones free to express themselves in so many new and amazing ways! There's definitely a bit of the hippie vibe to the set at times – such ... LP, Vinyl record album

Electric Flag

Long Time Comin'
Columbia, Late 60s. Very Good
A wild little record, and one that's got a lot more going on than the usual blues-inspired rock set of the time!

Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes

Black & Blue
Philadelphia International, 1973. Very Good Gatefold
Classic Philly soul from Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes – a killer batch of studio tracks, despite the live image of the group on the cover! The album's got a slightly more expansive feel than some of the other Teddy Pendergrass-era albums by The Blue Notes – almost a mini-symphony ... LP, Vinyl record album
Blue Note, 1967. Very Good Gatefold
A much better record than you'd expect from the somewhat cheesy cover – one of Duke Pearson's funkiest sessions ever, and a hard swinging big band set with a great late 60s feel!
