LP, Vinyl record album


4.50 44

Great work from the classic days of the National Lampoon Radio Hour – a really wonderful show that ran on FM radio, and parodied many of the ideals and themes of the post-hippie generation! The work here is done in an underground hip mode that would show up more strongly in the mainstream on Saturday Night Live a few years later – and the only big name in the cast for this record is Christopher Guest, although the set does include a few surprise appearances by Melissa Manchester. Titles include "Concert In Bangla Desh", "Those Fabulous Sixties", "Clue Number Five", "Deteriorata", "Catch It & You Keep It", "Pigeons", and "Magical Misery Tour".  © 1996-2015, Dusty Groove, Inc.

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.

Used Vinyl Grades

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, please note that all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:

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.

Capitol, Late 50s. Very Good+
A hilarious parody of Mitch Miller's famous sing-a-long albums from the 50's, done by the crazy comedian Mickey Katz, with his usual Yiddish schmaltz. The record features Mickey leading the sing-a-long with "Der Ganser Gang", on parodies like "I Love You Much Too Much", "My ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sussex, 1974. Very Good-
The fourth album from Bill Withers and an overlooked gem recorded for Sussex – and a great bit of funky soulful stuff in the best Withers tradition – a record that's sadly kind of withered in relative obscurity for far too many years!
