Meaty Beaty Big & Bouncy

LP (Item 565694) Decca, 1971 — Condition: Near Mint-
Gatefold
A classic greatest hits package from The Who – one that had almost as much life as any of their major full length albums, and a set that served to re-introduce new audiences to the group after the success of Tommy and Who's Next! Most of the tracks here predate those albums – pulled from the group's earliest years, and awash in mod rhythms, tight guitars, and lyrics that are quite edgey – even in the format of a two-minute pop tune. Titles include "Boris The Spider", "Happy Jack", "Pictures Of Lily", "My Generation", "The Seeker", "I Can't Explain", "The Kids Are Alright", "Anyway Anyhow Anywhere", "A Legal Matter", "Substitute", "I'm A Boy", and "Pinball Wizard".  © 1996-2024, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Spectrum label stereo pressing.)

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.

Who

Quick One
Polydor, 1966. Near Mint-
Maybe the first true moment of genius from The Who – a record that shows that the group aren't just the usual mod rockers of the time – even though they were already pretty darn great in that format! Instead, there's all these little weird bits and odd themes going on – including ... LP, Vinyl record album

Who

It's Hard
Warner, 1982. Near Mint-
Maybe the last really essential album from The Who – the second to feature Kenny Jones on drums, doing a surprisingly great job of filling in the space left behind when Keith Moon departed the planet – and a record that also has Pete Townshend working out some of his stronger mature ...

Who

Tommy
Decca, 1970. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
An amazing moment from The Who – and from the UK rock scene in general – as Tommy is one of the most fully-conceived concept albums ever recorded – a masterful effort that's still pretty hard to match all these many years later! Pete Townshend really knocked it out of the park ... LP, Vinyl record album
Decca, 1970. Very Good+ Gatefold
A landmark live set from The Who – a record that offers the group with a blistering intensity that blows away all their other studio albums of the time! Although offered during the Who's Tommy-era expansion into broader themes and more complicated instrumentation, the album's a real return ... LP, Vinyl record album

Cake
Decca, 1967. Very Good
Wonderfully tripped-out girl group work from the end of the 60s – almost a psyche-era take on the sound of female pop trios from a few years before! Cake definitely have their roots in a Brill Building, Phil Spector-influenced world – but their overall presentation here is much more ... LP, Vinyl record album

John Mayall's Blues Breakers

Hard Road (2LP)
Decca, 1967. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
A killer album from one of the most legendary versions of John Mayall's Blues Breakers – a quartet that features drummer Aynsley Dunbar, bassist John McVie, and lead guitarist Peter Green – who's also singing a fair bit on the album as well! The style here is tighter and more focused ... LP, Vinyl record album
