LP, Vinyl record album

(€4.42 || £3.84 || ¥554) (approx.)

Cool quirky post-punk work from The Waitresses – a group who maybe were never as big as Blondie or Romeo Void, but shared a very similar space at the time! This album's best known for the classic "I Know What Boys Want" – a naughty little number that got plenty of dancefloor and radio play back in the day – but the whole album's an equally enjoyable romp, with lots of jagged guitars, sharp-edged rhythms, and cool snot-nosed vocals from Patty Donahue! Mars Williams blows some mighty reeds in the group – and titles include "I Know What Boys Want", "Wise Up", "It's My Car", "No Guilt", "Heat Night", and "Go On". (Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has some wear.)  © 1996-2017, 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.

Mountain Live
Windfall, 1972. Very Good-
Sure, Mountain's a rock group by most accounts – and that's where you'll find most of their records in the record store. But from our end, this album always shows up in the crates of hip DJs from way back – clearly for the massive breakbeat classic "Long Red", a monster ... LP, Vinyl record album
Changes One
RCA, 1976. Very Good
Almost a "greatest hit" of "greatest hits" collection – given the importance of this album to the David Bowie catalog! Sure, it compiles tracks from other releases – but it also was the album that gave the world the killer cut "John I'm Only Dancing" ... LP, Vinyl record album
Harvest, 1973. Very Good
One of the best jazz rock combos to grace the Harvest label in the early 70s – a German trio who've got plenty of proggish inflections, and who really serve up some great keyboards and guitar over heavy drums! There's a bit of vocals on the set, natch, but the best tunes feature lots of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Incense & Peppermints
Uni, Late 60s. Very Good+
Dreamy dreamy pop psych from Strawberry Alarm Clock – a great late 60s group who skirted the worlds of Sunshine Pop and more jamming garage rock! This album's got a lot more to offer than you might guess from just the title hit – as the instrumentation sometimes gets nicely tripped out ... LP, Vinyl record album
Mass In F Minor
Reprise, Late 60s. Near Mint-
A beautifully baroque batch of tracks, written and arranged for the Electric Prunes by the great David Axelrod – a really groundbreaking mix of modes that had quite an impact back in the late 60s! The record shows Axelrod's perpetual fascination with the spiritual – mixed with that ... LP, Vinyl record album
Fourth (4)
Columbia, 1970. Very Good+
An almost all-jazz release by Soft Machine – and a tasty bit of proggish tunes with a spare electric modal groove. Robert Wyatt's still on drums, and the rest of the group features Hugh Hopper on bass, Mike Ratledge on organ and piano, and Elton Dean on saxes. Titles include "Teeth" ... LP, Vinyl record album
Philips (UK), Late 60s. Very Good Gatefold
That's right – you're not dreaming – this is a rare Scott Walker album, never reissued on CD! The album features Scott singing a number of standards and pop covers, the sort of fare that he laid down on his short-lived TV show in the late 60s. The tunes aren't exactly the same as ... LP, Vinyl record album
Da Capo
Elektra, 1967. Near Mint-
A stunning second album from Love – a set that's still without the fuller orchestrations and baroque touches of Forever Changes – but which already shows the group moving in that direction! The rough, gritty edge of the group is very firmly intact – but they've already got a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Tale Of The Tape
Capitol, 1980. Very Good+
There's no strokin' going on on this Billy Squier album, but all you need to know is that it starts out with his rock break number "The Big Beat". Aside from that it's all attitude and loud guitars, on tracks like "Rich Kid", "Like I'm Lovin You" and 'Who's Your ... LP, Vinyl record album
Elektra, 1981. Very Good
14 tracks in all, including "Fat Bottomed Girls", "You're My Best Friend", "Crazy Little Thing Called Love", "Somebody To Love", "Play The Game", "Flash", "We Will Rock You" and "We Are The Champions". LP, Vinyl record album
Elektra, 1983. Very Good+
The last true masterpiece by the greatest rock band to ever come out of the late 70s and early 80s L.A. scene. More Fun In The New World serves in a lot of ways as X's upright middle finger to the early years of the Reagan era, with the anthemic opener "The New World", and the ballad ... LP, Vinyl record album
Columbia, 1968. Near Mint-
A pivotal album for Dylan – featuring complicated dark little numbers like "All Along The Watchtower", "The Ballad Of Frankie Lee & Judas Priest", "I Am A Lonesome Hobo", "I Pity The Poor Immigrant", "The Wicked Messenger", "As I Went ... LP, Vinyl record album
