Beach Boys' Christmas Album

LP (Item 481441) Capitol, Mid 60s — Condition: Very Good+

A harmony heaven way to enjoy the Holiday! The group's version of Christmas has to be one of the best-ever recorded in rock and roll – and given the undercurrent of sadness that was coming forth in their non-Holiday hits of the period, the style here is perfect to fit the melancholy mood of the Christmas tunes – even some of the more upbeat numbers! Production is great too – beautiful enough to hold up strongly after all these years – and titles include "Blue Christmas", "Merry Christmas Baby", "Christmas Day", "Little Saint Nick", "The Man With All The Toys", "Santa's Beard", "Auld Lang Syne", "Frosty The Snowman", and "I'll Be Home For Christmas".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(70s yellow label pressing. Cover has light wear and a braille sticker on the front.)

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight 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.

John Lennon

Plastic Ono Band
Apple, 1970. Near Mint-
The first true proper solo album by John Lennon – recorded after a few non-Beatles records with Yoko Ono, and at the same time as Yoko's much wilder album with a similar title! This one, though, is John at his best – very personal and exposed, in similar territory to Paul McCartney on ... LP, Vinyl record album

John Lennon

Rock N Roll
Apple, 1975. Very Good+
John Lennon revisits the rock and roll canon after years of emotionally charged solo material – a move that was partially imposed by legal necessity, but got even more messed up from there – culminating a solid, set of pure Rock N Roll in '75! Includes sessions produced by Lennon in ... LP, Vinyl record album

Warren Zevon
Asylum, 1976. Near Mint-
An early gem from Warren Zevon – his first for Asylum and a creative peak – with some of his best remembered songs, and deeper album cuts that are just as great! Zevon's dark sense of humor comes through here, especially on the all time classic "Poor Poor Pitiful Me", but ... LP, Vinyl record album

An obscure Brazilian rock set from the end of the 60s – maybe with some late traces of the jovem guarda generation, but some groovier elements too!
