Years Gone By

LP (Item 54194) Stax, Early 70s — Condition: Very Good+

Soulful blues from Albert – recorded in Memphis with some strong arrangements by Al Jackson. The tracks aren't necessarily in the funky blues mode, but Albert's guitar and vocals are great all the way through, with that tight crossover sound that made him one of the best acts of his time in the blues mode. Includes the instrumentals "You Don't Love me", and "Drowning On Dry Land", plus "Killing Floor", "Cockroach", "Lonely Man", "Wrapped Up In Love Again", "The Sky Is Crying", and "If The Washing Don't Get You, The Rinsing Will".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Original yellow label pressing. Cover has wear and masking tape along the top seam.)

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.
