One Step Beyond

LP (Item 523822) Stiff (UK), 1979 — Condition: Near Mint-

Madness back when they were strongly in a ska vein! Titles include "One Step beyond", "Tarzan's Nuts", "Madness", "Chimunks Are Go", "Razor Blade Alley", and "Land Of Hope & Glory".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(UK pressing, including the heavy inner sleeve. Cover has a vintage price sticker on front and a sticker on back.)

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.

Madness

Absolutely
Sire, 1980. Near Mint-
... LP, Vinyl record album
Reprise, 1972. Sealed
Post Pearls Before Swine work from Tom Rapp – a record that has him stepping out as a solo act, but with a feel that's quite similar to his recordings with the group! The mood here is laidback and slightly folksy – but also augmented more by piano than by guitar, and recorded with a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Columbia, 1968. Very Good- 2LP Gatefold
The first Chicago album – presented here in all its jazzy brilliance! Back in the day, we used to wince when we heard these guys – but over the years, thanks to much rediscovery of the band by groove hounds, we've really come to like their work a lot. This first album especially has ... 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
A&M, Late 60s. Very Good-
A dream of a record from those late 60s years when A&M Records was wonderfully free to experiment with new sounds and styles – and was able to turn out really amazing records like this! Joanne Vent is almost more of a blue-eyed soul singer than you'd guess from the rockish look of the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jimi Hendrix

Cry Of Love

... LP, Vinyl record album

Jethro Tull

Thick As A Brick
Reprise, 1972. Very Good Gatefold
Jethro Tull's classic prog album–or is it a parody of a prog album? The LP-length "song", filled with dense lyrics, alternates between hard rock, English folk, and classical. LP, Vinyl record album

Jethro Tull

Stand Up
Reprise, 1969. Very Good- Gatefold
Beautiful early work from Jethro Tull – a formative set that really has the group deepening both their themes and their music! There's still a bit of blues rock at the core – but also some richer, more lyrical modes too – and Ian Anderson does a perfect job of bridging both ... LP, Vinyl record album
Atco, 1974. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
Hard to go wrong with the insanity of this one! The record broke the bank of Genesis, but really allowed Peter Gabriel to trip out nicely as his swan song to the band. LP, Vinyl record album

Young Rascals

Groovin'
Atlantic, 1967. Very Good-
Possibly the biggest album ever by The Rascals – a wonderfully tight batch of tunes that has the group hitting perfectly on all their best fronts! Blue eyed soul mixes wonderfully with some rougher garage-styled rock – and the execution here is perfect enough to please listeners on ... LP, Vinyl record album

Equators

Hot
Stiff (UK), 1981. Near Mint-
With "Rescue Me", "Age Of 5", "If You Need Me", "More Than A Person", "Rankin' Discipline", "Mr Copper", "Nightmare", "Where Did Johnny Go", "There Is Someone", "Learn My Lesson" and "Feelin' ... LP, Vinyl record album

Kenny Rankin

After The Roses
Atlantic, 1980. Near Mint-
Mellow magic from Kenny Rankin – an album that follows nicely from his Kenny Rankin album of a few years before, and which has a relatively similar approach! Like that one, Don Costa's at the helm – producing as well as arranging – and most instrumentation is from a core small ... LP, Vinyl record album
