So Good

LP (Item 430737) Epic, 1967 — Condition: Very Good-

Sweet sweet pop from the Seattle scene of the 60s – the classic Epic album by a group led by keyboardist/producer Don Gallucci – a combo with a sound that's a lot warmer than most of their Northwest contemporaries! Although Gallucci had roots in the Kingsmen, the style here is much more in a southern California mode – Sunshine-influenced and filled with great harmonies on the vocals, even on tracks that are driven by a slightly more garage undercurrent in the instrumentation. Part of the strength of the set is most likely due to Stu Phillips and Jack Nitzsche – who handled the arrangements alongside Nitzsche's beautifully spacious production – and although an obscure one, the record easily stands with some of the greatest jangle pop by bigger names of the 60s! Titles include "I Could Be So Good To You", "The Music Box", "I Could Never Be", "Sweet Sweet Mama", "Good Day Sunshine", and "With A Girl Like You".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good - (minus)

  • Vinyl may be dirty, and can lack a fair amount of luster.
  • Vinyl can have a number of marks, either in clusters or smaller amounts, but deeper.
  • This is the kind of record that you'd buy to play, but not because it looked that great. Still, the flaws should be mostly cosmetic, with nothing too deep that would ruin the overall record.
  • Examples include a record that has been kept for a while in a cover without the paper sleeve, or heavily played by a previous owner and has some marks across the surface. The record should play okay, though probably with surface noise.

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.

Hey Spud boy! You need this record. Definitely underrated in the grand scheme, Oh No! finds the boys rocking a much more straightforward, nerdy computer funk sound.
