LA (Light Album)

LP (Item 516616) Caribou, 1979 — Condition: Near Mint-

(UK pressing, including the printed inner sleeve. Cover has a promo stamp.)

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.

Double LP reissue of these two post-Pet Sounds albums – Wild Honey, the stripped down, back-to-basics record that they put out after the failure of Smile; and 20/20, a weird mix of stuff, but a record that also contains some of the lost tracks from Smile. Loads of great tracks, including ... LP, Vinyl record album

Atlantic, 1973. Near Mint- Gatefold
One of Rahsaan Roland Kirk's last truly fantastic albums – a set that still has all the amazingly messed-up qualities of his best late 60s work – delivered with the honest heart and sense of soul that always make us love his music! The set was recorded for Atlantic in the early 70s, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Blue Note, 1967. Near Mint- Gatefold
A much better record than you'd expect from the somewhat cheesy cover – one of Duke Pearson's funkiest sessions ever, and a hard swinging big band set with a great late 60s feel! The group is all-class all the way – with players that include Pearson, Bob Cranshaw, Mickey Roker, Marvin ... LP, Vinyl record album

Out Of The Frying Pan
United Artists, 1969. Near Mint-
A lost Hammond classic – from organist Mick Weaver, who famously worked with the group Traffic! This set's a lot different than the work he did in that band, though – as the album's all instrumental, and has a quick-stepping, all-soul sound that's a lot like the best Jimmy McGriff ...

Misty
Prestige, 1966. Near Mint-
One of the biggest hits of the 60s for Richard Groove Holmes – and for good reason too, given the title single of the record!

Soul Message
Prestige, 1965. Near Mint-
A key album in the career of Richard Groove Holmes – his first session ever for Prestige Records, and the one that yielded the monster crossover hit version of "Misty"! The sound here is much leaner and cleaner than Groove in his Pacific Jazz years – a tight trio approach ... LP, Vinyl record album
Blue Note, 1960. Near Mint-
Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers, recording in the very familiar territory of the Birdland nightclub – in a format that was handled previously by the Blue Note label, but maybe never with a lineup this great!
