Talking Heads: 77

LP (Item 376521) Sire, 1977 — Condition: Near Mint-

Their first album, from when they were still fresh out of art school, with a nice, stripped down approach. With "Uh-Oh, Love Comes To Town", "New Feeling", "Tentative Decisions", "Happy Day", "Who Is It?", "No Compassion", "The Book I Read", "Don't Waorry About The Government", "First Week/Last Week. . .Carefree", 'Psycho Killer" and "Pulled Up".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(US pressing, including the lyric sleeve. Cover is stained on the bottom 4 inches.)

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.

Pretenders II
Sire, 1981. Near Mint-
A great sophomore set from The Pretenders – one that almost lives up to the dark intensity of their debut – and which certainly continues the group's initial legacy in all the right ways!

Broken Frame
Sire/Mute, 1982. Near Mint-
Early Depeche Mode! A Broken Frame is the group's second album, and its finds the group getting their footing exceptionally well after losing Vince Clarke.

Rank
Sire, 1988. Near Mint- Gatefold
A full-length live set from The Smiths – and one that's a surprisingly great complement to their studio material of the time! The album's got a nicely different vibe on some cuts – not all-out jams or improvisations, but maybe just a bit more character than some of the studio versions ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sire, 1978. Near Mint-
A seminal 70s set from this key Aussie band – one that almost had more of an impact here in the US than they did in their homeland! The sound is pretty tight, even though there's some larger horns on some cuts – and The Saints have a razor-sharp guitar edge that doesn't profess to be ... LP, Vinyl record album

Cat Mother & The All Night News Boys

Street Giveth & The Street Taketh Away
Polydor, 1968. Near Mint-
A legendary batch of funky rock tracks – noteworthy not only for production by Jimi Hendrix, but also for the group's insanely great groove! There's a bluesy undercurrent here, but sharpened much more strongly for the funk generation – which takes Cat Mother way past contemporaries ... LP, Vinyl record album
Reprise, 1967. Near Mint-
Wickedly clever British pop – plucked from our favorite period of this legendary British band!
