Down In The Boondocks

LP (Item 46969) Columbia, 1965 — Condition: Near Mint-

A sublime crossover pop gem! Billy Joe Royal may not have lasted long in the annals of pop – but we'll love him always for the title cut to this one, the incredible "Down In The Boondocks", which was produced to perfection by the great Joe South! Joe handled the rest of the album, which has a lot of similar sad-sounding pop tunes like "I Knew You When", "Those Railroad Tracks In Between", "My Fondest Memories", "Leaning On You", and "King Of Fools".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(360 Sound stereo pressing. Cover has light wear and a cutout hole.)

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.

Leonard Cohen's debut for Columbia, one of the most astounding first albums of its era, and to this day a towering achievement in both songwriting and myth making!

Columbia, 1975. Very Good+
We've gotta admit, this record sounds a lot better with the passing of time than we might have expected – thanks in part to some totally sweet Fender Rhodes, used often, and in all the best ways to pepper the tunes!

Fearless
Columbia, 1983. Very Good+
A strange and ultimately very fun set from Nina Hagen circa '83 – with production by Giorgio Morodor that's clearly geared towards an 80s mainstream club soul sound – and the record turns out to be all the weirder because of it! Nina's vocals are as anti-pop as they come, and Morodor's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Neon
Columbia, 1967. Very Good
Beautiful work from The Cyrkle – post-folk, partly-sunshine, and a treasure trove of really groovy tunes!

Columbia, 1971. Very Good
Moody, folksy work from the Canadian duo of Fraser & Debolt – helped here by a bit of extra work on fiddle from Ian Guenther! The sound is often quite spare – acoustic guitars and vocals, with little else more than the guest fiddle – in a style that's nicely rough-edged, ... LP, Vinyl record album

An album so heavy, it blew plenty of minds when first released at the end of the 60s!
