My Labors

LP (Item 529309) Columbia, 1969 — Condition: Very Good
Blistering, bluesy, Bay Area work from Nick Gravenites – a classic set recorded both in the studio, and live at the Fillmore! Gravenites has a gravely vocal approach that's arguably one of the best of the blue-eyed bluesmen of his late 60s rock generation – and he gets plenty of great support from a group that features Mike Bloomfield on guitar, and a pretty sweet horn section too – which really gives some cuts a soulful undercurrent you wouldn't expect. Titles include "My Labors", "Throw Your Dog A Bone", "Killing My Love", "Moon Tune", "Holy Moly", and "Wintry Country Side".  © 1996-2023, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(360 Sound stereo pressing. Cover has light wear and a cut corner. Vinyl is clean, but has a mark that clicks during "Killing My Love". A-side label has initials in marker.)

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.

Distant Shores
Columbia, 1966. Very Good-
A slightly headier sound than before from Chad & Jeremy – music that's still in a great mix of Brit Invasion and Sunshine Pop, but which also shows a somewhat deeper sensibility too – a desire to reach past the simpler pop modes that first got the pair going here in the US!

A classic set from the legendary Ian Dury & The Blockheads!

Jack Bruce

Harmony Row
Atco, 1971. Near Mint- Gatefold
A surprisingly wonderful solo album from Jack Bruce – one that's got a tighter approach to the songwriting, and done in a strange jazz-rock-folk style that at times recalls the early work of Roy Wood, or some of the later work of Tim Hardin. The album's got a strangely personal feel – ... LP, Vinyl record album
