LP, Vinyl record album

✈
❔

The last Columbia album from the team of Chad Stuart & Jeremy Clyde – and a record that's even more baroquely brilliant than their previous set, Of Cabbages & Kings! Chad & Jeremy have really gone over the top here – reaching into fuller orchestrations and deeper social themes that rival their most complex contemporaries – sitting in a special space somewhere between The Zombies and The Moody Blues, and working at a level that haunts the most heavenly corners of both of those influences! As on Cabbages, Gary Usher produced – and really manages to make Chad's arrangements sound great – using the cellos and woodwinds without any overdone qualities, and really keeping the acoustic guitar high enough in the mix to maintain a sense of sincerity in the tunes. Titles include "The Raven", "Pipe Dream", "Transatlantic Trauma 1966", "Sidewalk Requiem Los Angeles June 5th & 6th", "Paxton Quigley's Had The Curse", "Pantheistic Study For Guitar & Large Bird", "The Emancipation Of Mr X", "The Ark", and "Painted Dayglow Smile". CD also features 3 bonus tracks – "Letter To A London Girl", "Pipe Dream", and "The Song Of The Love Child (Tobey's Song)".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(360 Sound stereo pressing, with stamped 2B/etched 1B matrix.)

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.

Chad & Jeremy

Of Cabbages & Kings
Columbia, 1967. Very Good
A dream of a record from Chad & Jeremy – a fantastic bit of psychedelic pop produced by Gary Usher! The album's got quite a different feel than the rest of the duo's work – as their standard Brit pop style is augmented by lots of extra strings and woodwinds, super-baroque in a ...

CBS (Japan), 1964. Very Good+ Gatefold
A fantastic early chapter in the solo career of Paul Simon – an unusual 60s album made away from Art Garfunkel, and only released in the UK at the time! Word has it that Paul was never happy with the record, but we find it to be amazing – and this surprising link between his young ... LP, Vinyl record album

An undisputed masterpiece, and a record we never tire of hearing – unabashedly the inspiration for our years of jazzy exploration as adults, even though it was probably the closest thing we ever got to the genre as wee lads! Walter Becker & Donald Fagan raise their already-high bar to ... LP, Vinyl record album

John Lennon

Imagine
Apple, 1971. Very Good-
Not the out there primal scream of Plastic Ono, and more of an impeccably produced, easy to love landmark from John Lennon! The title track, beautiful as it is, is so heavily ingrained into rock & roll myth making machine that it's become too easy to overlook how great most of the songs on the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Pink Floyd

Wish You Were Here
Columbia, 1975. Very Good
A seminal set from 70s Pink Floyd – a set that took all the energy of Dark Side Of The Moon, and refined it into an even more complex sonic setting! The songs here move out spaciously – still very unified as an overall album, but often with all of these longer-form musical ideas, and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bruce Springsteen

River
Columbia, 1980. Very Good+ 2LP
Prime classic Springsteen double album, circa 1980! The River finds Bruce a few years removed from the massive breakthrough that was Born To Run, and seemingly starting to let go of the darker tone of Darkness On The Edge Of Town, though still with some shadows of it. Definitely a creative high ... LP, Vinyl record album
