Some Time In New York City

LP (Item 519816) Apple, 1972 — Condition: Near Mint-
2LP Gatefold

The most polarizing of John Lennon's post Beatles ouvre – the strident, Spector-produced, sprawling mess that is Some Time In New York City – a record that has too much of every idea John & Yoko had at the time, which makes it all the more fascinating after all these years! Angry, self-righteous and quite often brilliant – feminist anthems backed by Wall Of Sound pop, an ode to John Sinclair in the mold of a country rock tune – wild stuff from a superstar! Include "Woman Is The Ni**er Of The World", "Sister, Oh Sister", "Sunday Bloody Sunday", "Attica State", "New York City" and more.  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(US pressing with Bell Sound stamp, including the printed inner sleeve. Cover has some heavy wear at the top seam.)

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.

Badfinger

Straight Up
Apple, 1971. Very Good
Badfinger's early 70s win streak continues on Straight Up – a straight up classic set of tuneful 70s rock with big emotions and catchy songs – one that keeps just enough grit underneath those killer melodies! Titles include "Take It All", "Bably Blue", "Name Of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Capitol/Apple, 1967. Very Good- Gatefold
Hard to deny the lasting power of this crucial album from The Beatles – a set that unleashed some of their trippiest sounds and most tender moments too! The mix of wit and honesty is wonderful – and the sonic range is dynamic as the archetypal cover image – a package that's had ... LP, Vinyl record album

George Harrison

Electronic Sound
Apple, 1969. Very Good+
A real oddity from George Harrison – a record of abstract electronics, cut right around the same time as his bigger mainstream solo hits! The record is a highly experimental one – a session that has Harrison working with Bernie Krause, and exploring territory that's much more in the ... LP, Vinyl record album

John Lennon

Imagine
Apple, 1971. Very Good
Not the out there primal scream of Plastic Ono, and more of an impeccably produced, easy to love landmark from John Lennon! The title track, beautiful as it is, is so heavily ingrained into rock & roll myth making machine that it's become too easy to overlook how great most of the songs on the ... LP, Vinyl record album

John Lennon & Yoko Ono

Two Virgins
Apple, 1968. Near Mint-
An amazing experimental set from the team of John Lennon & Yoko Ono – a record that might look hippy dippy on the cover, given its famous nude image of the pair – but which really unleashes a very experimental sound throughout – one that's more in keeping with Yoko's ties to ... LP, Vinyl record album

Badfinger

Ass
Apple, 1973. Very Good+
A rawer Badfinger emerges on Ass – self-produced with a no frills vibe that was apparently something of a controversial way for the boys to record at the time, as Apple initially rejected it. It sounds like great rock & roll to us! Sweet melodies and tuneful songs are still the order of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Plastic Ono Band

Live Peace In Toronto
Apple, 1969. Very Good+
The earliest incarnation of the Plastic Ono band, and more or les a one off, with an all star line up that included Eric Clapton and Klaus Voorman alongside Lennon and Ono. One side of the rootsy rock that was the old school Beatles stock in trade, and one side of Yoko Ono doing her thing on the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Frost

Frost Music
Vanguard, 1969. Sealed
A pretty electric set of late 60s hard rock tracks – nothing fancy, but pretty nice! The group's heavy on the guitars, and sings in a style that's got some slightly soulful touches – but not too much. Titles include "First Day Of May", "Baby Once You Got It", " ... LP, Vinyl record album

Love

Revisited
Elektra, 1970. Very Good+ Gatefold
A classic introduction to the music of Love – put together by Elektra Records after the group's first few monumental albums! Few groups were as great at the start and changed so quickly as Love – and you can hear it all here – from the gritty, garagey Sunset Strip sounds of the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Clark Hutchinson

A = MH2
Decca, 1969. Near Mint-
A really inventive album from the key years of the British psych scene – and a set that goes way beyond even the important experiments of the bigger names of the time! Clark Hutchinson is just a duo – Mick Hutchinson on guitars, piano, and lots of percussion – and Andy Clark on ... LP, Vinyl record album

Soul Asylum

Say What You Will
Twin Tone, Mid 80s. Sealed
Fantastic early work from this Minneapolis group – produced with a real edge by Bob Mould, and much more towards the Husker Du side of the spectrum than their later work! LP, Vinyl record album
Tower, 1966. Very Good+
A searing second chapter in The Standells' amazing run of records for the Tower label in the 60s – music that's completely on fire right from the start – and head and shoulders above most of their contemporaries on the LA scene! The group have this stark, cold look on the front – ... LP, Vinyl record album
