Seed Of Memory

LP (Item 418407) ABC, 1976 — Condition: Near Mint-

A bit later than Terry Reid's real classics, but also a surprisingly nice little record – even if the sound is different! Graham Nash produced, and the record has a style that mixes raspy vocals and acoustic guitar with some sweeter, smoother touches – almost an LA fantasy of country sounds, at a level that was being played out more commercially with bigger acts at the time – but which comes off in a more personal way here. Reid's songs and vocals are all quite strong, and titles include "The Frame", "Fooling You", "Seed Of Memory", "Faith To Arise", "To Be Treated Rite", and "Brave Awakening".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Original US pressing, including the ABC inner sleeve and insert. Vinyl has cosmetic recycle marks. Cover has very light surface wear.)

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.

A lost classic that needs to be in every hip rock collection!

Greatest Hits
ABC, 1970s. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
We've always considered Steely Dan one of the quintessential 70s "Album Oriented Rock" bands, in that all of there albums work so well as a whole, so the idea of a greatest hits collection doesn't exactly work for us. Still, taken out of context, these songs are still gems, and listening ... LP, Vinyl record album

Pretzel Logic
ABC, 1974. Very Good Gatefold
Magical music from the team of Donald Fagan and Walter Becker – one of those records that seems to state its existence in simple, straightforward terms – but which is also filled with undeniably complex moments!

The first album from Steely Dan, and already a leading light in the world of 70s rock!

John Mayall

Banquet In Blues
ABC, 1976. Near Mint-
70s work from British blues rock legend John Mayall – done in a Cali style that still holds on to his roots, but gives the music a leaner, funkier style overall! The vibe's a bit like Mayall's record with Allen Toussaint, although John's on his own here – tightly refining his older ... LP, Vinyl record album
ABC, Late 60s. Near Mint-
When we were playing this, someone in the office said "What's the deal with these guys? Did they just do sound-a-like versions of other people's hits?" On some of their other records, we might say no – but this one's pretty much a Pickwick-esque remake/remodel of late 60s rockers ... LP, Vinyl record album

Insight Out
Warner, 1967. Very Good
Fantastic dreamy pop! Despite the fact that this one yielded the super-huge hits "Windy" and "Never My Love", the album's also filled with great 60s pop tunes that you've probably never heard before – all as fantastically well-crafted and delicately strung-out as the big ...
