If You Saw Thro' My Eyes

LP (Item 491031) Vertigo, 1971 — Condition: Very Good+
Gatefold
Also available
Ian Matthews — If You Saw Thro' My Eyes ... CD 13.99

Ian Matthews got his start in Fairport Convention, but a record like this makes it clear that Matthews always needed to be a mainman of his own – as the record's got this focus, fullness, and lyrical quality that's only further by Ian's surprisingly strong role as a producer! There are a few older echoes here and there, but the whole thing is stepping up to a new generation of singer/songwriter material – personal, but confident – acoustically inflected, but never folksy at all – and filled with the sorts of songs that make it clear that you're in a new generation of self-expression! Titles include "Desert Inn", "Hearts", "Never Ending", "Reno Nevada", "Hinge (parts 1 & 2)", "Southern Wind", "Morgan The Pirate", and "If You Saw Thro' My Eyes".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

Thin Lizzy

Nightlife
Vertigo, 1974. Near Mint-
An overlooked classic from Thin Lizzy – an album that really has the group coming into their own – refining the sharper edges of Vagabonds, but still a bit free of the tightness of Jailbreak! There's a great undercurrent of funk at times – those sharp drums that made the Thin ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gentle Giant

Acquiring The Taste
Vertigo, Early 70s. Very Good Gatefold
A perfectly balanced little set from Gentle Giant – a record that's progressive, but never overly jamming – jazzy, but still rock-based enough to contain some great straight ahead tunes – and whimsical, but never too flowery or hippy dippy! Gentle Giant were one of the few who ... LP, Vinyl record album

Mungo Jerry

Mungo Jerry
Janus, 1970. Very Good+ Gatefold
The debut album from the band that brought you that classic hit "In The Summertime". The rest of the record follows in the same vein – bluesy but with lots of kazoo, harmonica, jug playing and western saloon piano playing which makes it all pretty entertaining. Almost all of the ...

Can't Buy A Thrill
ABC, 1972. Very Good+ Gatefold
The first album from Steely Dan, and already a leading light in the world of 70s rock! The album's got a bit less of the polish of later years, but is still filled with gems – the kind of tunes that nobody ever seemed to pen before, and which few other groups could match later – ...

Warner, 1982. Very Good
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. It sort of takes a page from the 80s Kraftwerk playbook with the grid-patterned 80s computer tomfoolery, albeit with a far more ... LP, Vinyl record album

Kinks

Soap Opera
RCA, 1975. Very Good Gatefold
One of the highest-concept of all 70s Kinks album – a dark exploration of fame and the price of success, done as a mini-rock opera starring Norman & The Starmaker! As with some of these sets, the best tunes here are those that are the most subtle and less dramatic – and which ... LP, Vinyl record album
