Abbey Road

LP (Item 534353) Apple, 1969 — Condition: Very Good

Pure brilliance from start to finish – especially the second side of the record, which has a continuous run of tunes that's very unique – and still completely sublime all these many years later! The album shows the fracturing ideas of the group, but crafted together with a unity you won't find on The White Album or Let It Be – still a way of making it all gel together beautifully, as the fab four stretch their wings to find new ways of being. Added instrumentation is used wonderfully – never overdone, but with orchestral passages that can really hammer home the best musical moments – and titles include "I Want You", "Because", "You Never Give Me Your Money", "Golden Slumbers", "The End", "Her Majesty", "Polythene Pam", and "Sun King".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(US Apple pressing, with F42/A12#3 matrix in an un-cropped cover with "Her Majesty".)

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.

James Taylor
Apple, 1968. Very Good- Gatefold
As warm and wonderful of a late 60s singer songwriter effort as we can imagine wanting to hear in the late 60s mainstream – so it's fitting that James Taylor was signed with the Beatles' Apple Records for this excellent self-titled album! The lyrics chronicle a troubled soul, but man, did ... LP, Vinyl record album

John Lennon

Imagine
Apple, 1971. Very Good+
Not the out there primal scream of Plastic Ono, and more of an impeccably produced, easy to love landmark from John Lennon!

John Lennon & Yoko Ono

Two Virgins
Apple, 1968. Near Mint-
An amazing experimental set from the team of John Lennon & Yoko Ono – a record that might look hippy dippy on the cover, given its famous nude image of the pair – but which really unleashes a very experimental sound throughout – one that's more in keeping with Yoko's ties to ...

Billy Joe Royal

Down In The Boondocks
Columbia, 1965. Very Good
A sublime crossover pop gem! Billy Joe Royal may not have lasted long in the annals of pop – but we'll love him always for the title cut to this one, the incredible "Down In The Boondocks", which was produced to perfection by the great Joe South! Joe handled the rest of the album, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Hawaii Five O
Liberty, Late 60s. Very Good
If anybody could take a great tune and make it better, it was The Ventures – as you'll hear on this album's killer version of "Hawaii Five O" – as well as a host of other groovy goodies too! The set's still got the core sound of the quartet – loads of fuzzy guitars ... LP, Vinyl record album

H2O
RCA, 1982. Sealed
One that we heard way too much when it was out, but which we kind of love now!
