Doolittle

LP (Item 516180) 4AD, 1989 — Condition: Near Mint-

A defining moment for The Pixies and rock music in general! Doolittle somehow delivers on the rawer, artier promise of Surfer Rosa and Come On Pilgrim, while bringing in much more the irresistible catchiness that the earlier album(s) just hinted at. Rock music just didn't sound like this in 1989, kids! Amazing stuff. Includes "Debaser", "Tame", "Here Comes Your Man", "La La Love You", "Monkey Gone To Heaven", "I Bleed", "Hey", "Gouge Away" and more.  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Recent 180 gram vinyl, including the insert.)

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.

Cocteau Twins

Head Over Heels
4AD (UK), 1983. Very Good
Seminal early work from The Cocteau Twins – the kind of record that made the group almost a genre unto themselves – even though so many later artists tried to copy their sound and style! The record is years ahead of its time, especially when you consider that it was produced in the ... LP, Vinyl record album

This Mortal Coil

It'll End In Tears
4AD, 1984. Sealed
It may end in tears, but it starts in genius – as This Mortal Coil was one of the strongest ideas to ever come from the 4AD label in the 80s – a way of reworking older songs from the legacy of rock and pop, but with the new voice that the label was creating at the time! There's plenty ... LP, Vinyl record album

Hall & Oates

Private Eyes
RCA, 1981. Very Good
What can we say? We winced at this one back when it came out, but over the years, it's got a real "Free Soul" appeal to us – with vocals that are surprisingly soulful in parts, some nice 80s mellow soul instrumentation, and even a few hooks that are real guilty pleasures. Includes ... LP, Vinyl record album

Santana

Abraxas
Columbia, 1970. Very Good Gatefold
In the past 30 years, this one's gone from being a fierce outpouring of the Bay Area underground, to a cliche of classic rock, to a brilliant example of west coast Latin rock/funk/fusion in action! Features a stellar cover of "Oye Como Va", plus "Black Magic Woman/Gypsy Queen", ... LP, Vinyl record album

Santana

Welcome
Columbia, 1973. Very Good Gatefold
Sadly, it's really easy to dismiss Santana, if only for his having been elevated to iconic status among hippies and classic rock lovers, in spite of the fact that he made a number of great records. This early 70s effort finds him moving in a more jazzy direction, with supple rhythms underpinning ... LP, Vinyl record album

Rolling Stones

Some Girls
Rolling Stones, 1978. Very Good
Way more than the disco cash-in some folks thought at the time – and a surprisingly classic set that perfectly sums up the late 70s Stones ethos – and, in a way, the vibe of a changing New York! Titles include "Miss You", "Beast Of Burden", "Shattered", ... LP, Vinyl record album
Epic, 1970. Very Good Gatefold
The crowning achievement of Spirit – and a record that you probably could have found in any college dorm room in the early 70s! The record's really a cut above for their generation – an expansive effort that hangs together with a bit of a concept, and which interweaves strands of rock, ... LP, Vinyl record album
