HMS Donovan

LP (Item 526236) Dawn (UK), 1971 — Condition: Very Good+
2LP Gatefold

Beautiful work from Donovan – a long double-length set done for the hip Dawn label, with production by the man himself – very different than some of his 60s work with Mickie Most! Some of the songs are from poetic sources, and woven together with a special magic that only Donovan could provide – often spare instrumentation, which really lets his amazing voice take center stage – bringing a core of sinister to some of the simpler moments.  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Purple label UK pressing, with poster! Poser has some light aging, and cover has some very light wear.)

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.

Epic, 1967. Near Mint- 2LP Box Set
One of the trippiest albums ever from Donovan, as you might guess from the title – a double-length gem that's filled with wonderfully groovy tunes! The set was cut during Donovan's killer years with producer Mickie Most in the late 60s – and it's got an instrumental feel that's even ... LP, Vinyl record album

Donovan

Barabajagal
Epic, 1968. Very Good+
Donovan at his jazzy best – really picking up where Mellow Yellow left off, and pushing the jazz influences in his sound to deeper lengths! Mr Leitch is a million miles away from his Dylanesque early roots on the set – and is working in territory that's completely his own – a ... LP, Vinyl record album
ABC, 1973. Very Good+
Superb work from Steely Dan – and a record that really shows them hitting perfection in the studio! The core sound of this one's jazzier than before – with some great help on instrumentation from Victor Feldman, Lanny Morgan, Bill Perkins, and other west coast jazzers – all ...

Gentle Giant

Acquiring The Taste
Vertigo, Early 70s. Very Good Gatefold
A perfectly balanced little set from Gentle Giant – a record that's progressive, but never overly jamming – jazzy, but still rock-based enough to contain some great straight ahead tunes – and whimsical, but never too flowery or hippy dippy! Gentle Giant were one of the few who ... LP, Vinyl record album

John Lennon

Imagine
Apple, 1971. Near Mint-
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
London, 1967. Very Good Gatefold
A record that was initially thought by some as a cheap cash-in on the Sgt Peppers concept – but an album that, to us, really helped set The Rolling Stones free to express themselves in so many new and amazing ways! There's definitely a bit of the hippie vibe to the set at times – such ... LP, Vinyl record album

Electric Flag

Long Time Comin'
Columbia, Late 60s. Very Good
A wild little record, and one that's got a lot more going on than the usual blues-inspired rock set of the time! Sure, Mike Bloomfield is on guitar, and Barry Goldberg handles keyboards – but the set also features some sitar from Richie Havens, plus moog from Paul Beaver, more guitar from ...

Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes

Black & Blue
Philadelphia International, 1973. Very Good Gatefold
Classic Philly soul from Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes – a killer batch of studio tracks, despite the live image of the group on the cover! The album's got a slightly more expansive feel than some of the other Teddy Pendergrass-era albums by The Blue Notes – almost a mini-symphony ... LP, Vinyl record album
