Birds Of A Feather

LP (Item 478965) Wayside, Early 70s — Condition: Very Good-
Just Sold Out!

LP, Vinyl record album


4.80 10

One of the great, slightly twisted slices of pop meets country meets psychedelia meets easy moog grooves from Blanchard & Morgan! We know that's a lot of meeting going on, but this fab guy/girl partnership pushed the boundaries of country & pop conventions in the 60s & 70s like no other! Jack & Misty somehow make moogs and steel guitars make sense on the same record – just as well as they with surreal psych era lyricism paired with plaintive tales of working class woes. And they do it all without it ever dipping into hokum. This album features a dozen great tracks in all, including "Tennessee Bird Walk", "Big Black Bird (Spirit Of My Love)", "Chapel Hill", "The Dum Song", "Bethlehem Steel", "Poor Jody", "Humphrey The Camel", "Yellow Bellied Sap Sucker", "Changin' Times", "The Clock Of St James", "You've Got Your troubles (I've Got Mine)", and "With Pen In Hand".

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.

Arguably one of the greatest pop albums of all time – a pure act of genius from Todd Rundgren, and one of the few cases in rock music where two records are actually better than one!

Sublime electric work from Ramsey Lewis! Ramsey's working here with his hip 70s group that included Morris Jennings and Cleveland Eaton, and he's playing some fantastic electric piano – a blend of funky grooves and soulful spiritualism, stripped down into a sound that's one of his leanest ...
