Kick Out the Jams

LP (Item 370443) Elektra, 1969 — Condition: Very Good+
Gatefold
Forget The Stooges, forget Alice Cooper, forget the White Stripes, and maybe even forget Funkadelic – because this landmark album is one that really put the ferocity of the Detroit scene on the map – rising up the city's legacy of raw sounds next to their better-known soul and pop of the 60s – and forever putting MC5 on the great rock and roll map! The group had been honing their craft in the city for a few years before this set – and it was the genius of Elektra Records to capture them live at the city's Grande Ballroom, and not in the studio – which is part of the intensity of the record's charm, especially on the sometimes-edited bit of profanity. Titles include the seminal "Kick Out The Jams", plus "Come Together", "Rocket Reducer No 62", "Borderline", "Motor City Is Burning", "I Want You Right Now", and "Starship".  © 1996-2024, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Big 'E' red label "Brothers & Sisters" pressing. Cover has some light wear.)

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.

Cars

Panorama
Elektra, 1980. Near Mint-
The third album from The Cars, and a set that nicely focuses more on some of the sharper, new wave elements in the group's sound – maybe more of a confident return to the quirky modes that got them going in the first place, once they were solidly at the forefront of the American mainstream! ...

The Holy Modal Rounders in all of their glory – weirder and even more hard to define than ever before – but maybe a bit more focused and tuneful than during the time that founders Peter Stampfel and Steve Weber spent in the Fugs!

Jerry Lee Lewis
Elektra, 1979. Near Mint-
A late 70s record that has Jerry Lee Lewis opening up nicely – getting back to basics in a session headed by Bones Howe, who gives Lewis just the right sort of songs and special touch that he wasn't getting during his later years at Mercury! There's still currents of the country in the music ... LP, Vinyl record album

Songs Of The Free
Warner, 1982. Near Mint-
Quite possibly our favorite Gang Of Four album – and the one in which their funk approach really seems to work! The album's got a camp appeal that can't be denied – known famously for it's big post-disco hit "I Love A Man In Uniform" – but overall the whole thing ... LP, Vinyl record album
