LP, Vinyl record album

(€16.94 || £15.14 || ¥2260) (approx.)

The great LA punk quartet got a little more melodic and tuneful for their second album, with the vocal exchanges between John and Exene just a tiny bit sweeter and Billy Zoom's rockabilly guitar work often taking a over a bit on the Ramones inspired chords. But the songs are as heavy and caustic as ever, making Wild Gift a huge step forward in the evolution of punk rock and an equal to the group's monumental Los Angeles. Titles include "The Once Over Twice", "We're Desperate", "Adult Books", "I'm Coming Over", "In This House That I Call Home", "White Girl", "Some Other Time", and "Year 1".

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.

Adventure
Elektra, 1978. Near Mint-
Marquee Moon set the bar too high in eyes of the avant rock/post punk literati – so Television's nearly as great, but not as revolutionary Adventure never really got its due.

Runt
Ampex, 1970. Sealed
Todd Rundgren in all of his great early glory – a record that's filled with simple, honest pop tunes – and one that also takes on a few experimental touches as well – but only in ways that further the earnest charm at its heart!

Something/Anything?
Bearsville, 1972. Very Good+ 2LP gatefold
Arguably one of the greatest pop albums of all time – a pure act of genius from Todd Rundgren, and one of the few cases in rock music where two records are actually better than one! The double-length set was Rundgren's third solo effort after the breakup of Nazz – but it's a broad step ... LP, Vinyl record album

A really tremendous album from The Talking Heads – and a set that moves far past their already-great early records, to really show a rhythmic complexity we never would have expected!
