Group Called Smith

LP (Item 534085) ABC, Late 60s — Condition: Very Good+

When we were playing this, someone in the office said "What's the deal with these guys? Did they just do sound-a-like versions of other people's hits?" On some of their other records, we might say no – but this one's pretty much a Pickwick-esque remake/remodel of late 60s rockers – like "Who Do You Love", "Last Time", "Let's Spend The Night Together", and "Tell Him No" – all done in kind of a hard rockin, semi-bluesy style.  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has 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.

Aja
ABC, 1977. Very Good+ Gatefold
An undisputed masterpiece, and a record we never tire of hearing – unabashedly the inspiration for our years of jazzy exploration as adults, even though it was probably the closest thing we ever got to the genre as wee lads!

Terry Reid

Seed Of Memory
ABC, 1976. Near Mint-
A bit later than Terry Reid's real classics, but also a surprisingly nice little record – even if the sound is different! Graham Nash produced, and the record has a style that mixes raspy vocals and acoustic guitar with some sweeter, smoother touches – almost an LA fantasy of country ... LP, Vinyl record album

Steely Dan

Greatest Hits
ABC, 1970s. Very Good 2LP Gatefold
We've always considered Steely Dan one of the quintessential 70s "Album Oriented Rock" bands, in that all of there albums work so well as a whole, so the idea of a greatest hits collection doesn't exactly work for us. Still, taken out of context, these songs are still gems, and listening ... LP, Vinyl record album

Litter

Emerge
Probe/ABC, 1969. Very Good- Gatefold
Heavy fuzzed out psychedelia from the late 60s Twin Cities scene – the wild and hard charging Emerge from The Litter – with a heft that would be just as right at home in Detroit at the time as it was in Minneapolis! A lot of that has to due to with the heft – the drums pound ... LP, Vinyl record album

ABC, 1976. Sealed Gatefold
A record with a gimmicky title and cover, but a real overlooked gem from mid 70s ABC Records – handled with sublime care in the studio from producer Gary Katz, engineer Roger Nichols, and a host of session players who worked on some of the Steely Dan records of the time! Yet Dirk Hamilton's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Brian Hyland

Sublime echoey pop from the young Brian Hyland! Includes the title track, and a fair bit of original numbers too – all set to arrangements by Stan Applebaum. LP, Vinyl record album

Lust For Life
RCA, 1977. Very Good+
Iggy Pop may have left The Stooges behind, but he's lost none of his edge – and really finds a new level of solo greatness on this sublime classic from the 70s!
