Big Brother & The Holding Company

LP (Item 529320) Mainstream, 1967 — Condition: Very Good

The first full album featuring the incredible voice of Janis Joplin, as the singer of Big Brother & The Holding Company! Even at this early point, it's clear that there's some really incredible things happening with this band. Originally released on Mainstream, the production is a bit thin compared to the bigger sounding records to come, hich actually works incredibly well – as Janis's voice just tears right through in a really exciting way. The rawer Big Brother backdrop is great, too! Titles include "Easy Rider", "Bye, Bye Baby", "Intruder", "Women Is Losers", Moondog's "All Is Lonliness", and "Down On Me".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Original stereo Mainstream pressing. Cover has light wear.)

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.

Cheap Thrills
Columbia, 1968. Very Good Gatefold
Cheap Thrills, maybe – but they cut deeply and last forever!

Early work from Ted Nugent – working here as the searing lead guitarist of the mighty Amboy Dukes!

Henry Tree

Electric Holy Man
Mainstream, Late 60s. Very Good
One of the most tripped-out records to ever come out on the Mainstream label – a really jamming set of guitar-heavy electric tracks with a killer groove! Henry Tree is a trio that features Leroy Markish on guitar and lead vocals, Carmen Castaldi on drums and Charles McLauughlin on bass. ... LP, Vinyl record album
Elektra, 1967. Very Good
What can we say? This is one of the greatest albums of all time! The record's got a sound that's completely unique – as crack LA garage punk rock meets Hollywood baroque production, and the result is an amazing bit of loud guitar noise backed by strings and horns, all graced by the godlike ...

RCA, 1970. Sealed
A pretty rough and rugged set of rock tracks – performed by a trio who were all prisoners at London's legendary Borstal! The title makes you think this might be some sort of Clash-type record, but the date belies the difference – and the overall approach is kind of in the Rolling ... LP, Vinyl record album

Soft Machine

Fifth (5)
Columbia, 1972. Near Mint-
Soft Machine's first album without Robert Wyatt – and an even more atmospheric blend of jazz rock modes than previous efforts! The tunes rely a bit more strongly on keyboards than before – making great use of Mike Ratledge's organ and electric piano, as well as additional keys from ... LP, Vinyl record album
Reprise, 1968. Near Mint- Gatefold
One of the greatest albums from The Kinks – the kind of material that pulled them strongly past their bluesy, garagey roots – into a role that has them giving some of the clearest, keenest visions of 20th Century British society – with all of its joys and worries! The tunes here ... LP, Vinyl record album

Basement 5

1965 to 1980
Island (UK), 1980. Near Mint-
UK West Indian ex-pats in vaguely sci-fi looking outfits team up with Martin Hannett for a blistering set of post punk guitar slashing that sadly seems to have become mostly a side bar in the history of the 80s UK scene – although sometime singer Don Letts did start Big Audio Dynamite later. ...

Columbia, 1968. Near Mint-

10 CC
London/UK, 1974. Near Mint-
The debut album from 70s tunefully tongue-in-cheek pop rockers 10 CC – and the intro to their unique blend of masterful pop songcraft and satirical, often vaguely cynical lyricism! As was the case with much of their ouvre, the jokiness rarely treads on the strong songwriting and catchy ... LP, Vinyl record album
