Sunday Funnies

LP (Item 372435) Rare Earth, 1971 — Condition: Near Mint-
Gatefold

An excellent batch of funky rock from The Sunday Funnies – a group we only know from this album, but who have the distinction of being produced by the great Andrew Oldham! The set's got a feel that's in keeping with the sound of Motown's Rare Earth label – well-crafted and jamming work, done in a style that's a bit more soulful than the average hard rock record of the time – nice currents of funk in the rhythms, and a fuzzy groove th at has that label's legacy of easily stepping over different modes, but in a very cohesive way. The songwriting's especially nice – and the group have a really full-on Detroit sound in their guitars – and the album's dedicated to an unusual batch of heroes who include Arthur C Clarke, Kahil Gibran, Herman Hesse, Pieter Bruegel, and Johnny Carson. Titles include "The Axe", "Child Of Mine", "Let The Son Shine In", "Tell Me", "You & I", and "Walk Down The Path Of Freedom".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor 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.
