Many Moods Of Murry Wilson

LP (Item 55818) Capitol, Mid 60s — Condition: Near Mint-

A lost gem from Brian Wilson's dad! As the cover says, "The talented father of the famous Beach Boys presents instrumental interpretations of his and other compositions." Basically, Murry was getting the squeeze from Brian, and this was Murry's way of saying "hey, I can do complicated baroque sort of arrangements too!" Funny thing is, despite the conflict he and Brian were having, the album's actually pretty great – and about halfway between Pet Sounds and an LA hip easy sort of approach. Of course, half of the credit goes to Don Ralke, who arranged and conducted the set – and probably gets more of Brian's feel down than his dad ever could. Titles include "Leaves", "The Plumber's Tune", "Love Won't Wait", "The Happy Song", "Betty's Waltz", "Painting With Teardrops", and a pretty nice version of "Warmth Of The Sun".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor 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.
