Road To Ruin

LP (Item 46697) Sire, 1978 — Condition: Very Good

A prime Ramones classic from the late 70s – a set that's got Joey, Johnny, and crew really hitting right on the money – with the kind of short sharp tracks that made the group such a key bridge between the 60s and the blank generation! The energy here is phenomenal – the kind of nonstop, always-blistering vibe that few of their imitators could ever hope to match – and certainly never with songs that are this catchy and perfectly formed! Titles include their classic "I Wanna Be Sedated", – plus "I Just Want Something To Do", "Needles & Pins", "Questioningly", "I Wanted Everything", "Go Mental", "Bad Brain", "It's A Long Way Back", and "Don't Come Close".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(UK pressing on yellow vinyl, with ALLEN etch. Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has some ring and edge wear, small peeled spots at the opening, a small mark from sticker removal, and is bent a bit around the edges.)

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.

Remain In Light
Sire, 1980. Very Good+
Some of the most compelling grooves the Talking Heads ever recorded – a set that sparkles with imaginative touches, and railroads forward on a wave of complicated rhythms!

Pretenders

Pretenders
Sire, 1980. Very Good+
One of the greatest mainstream rock and roll debuts of all time – and a record that still blows away just about any other later work by The Pretenders! The set's got this raw, sneering power that's neither punk, nor new wave – but which seems to be very much of that moment – a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Wha'ppen
Sire, 1981. Very Good+
One of best ever albums by The English Beat – one that cemented their status as one of the most creative groups to come out of the ska revival scene!

Incesticide
Geffen, Late 80s/Early 90s. Very Good+
Nirvana's riveting Incesticide – which at the time, looked like a mere placeholder for Geffen to sate the suddenly massive new fanbase of the band, between proper albums – but it turned out to be nearly as essential as anything they'd ever put out! A great batch of songs that are as ... LP, Vinyl record album

Steely Dan

Gaucho
MCA, 1980. Very Good+
The last album in the classic run of Steely Dan – the final taste we'd have of the group until their surprising revival in the 90s! Gaucho picks up beautifully where Aja left off – warmly produced with a deep undercurrent of jazz, but perhaps a bit more down to earth feel at times too ... LP, Vinyl record album
