Sabotage

LP (Item 575656) Warner, 1975 — Condition: Fair

Black Sabbath going strong – very much in their own space by this point in their career, setting a sound that countless others would try to follow – but never match for fierceness like this! The fuzz is definitely turned up to 11, the rhythms move at a breakneck speed, and Ozzy's vocals have all the mean, sinister sounds that set a generation on fire – plenty of energy to fill up long tracks that include "Megalomania", "Hole In The Sky", "Symptom Of The Universe", "Supertzar", "Am I Going Insane", and "The Writ".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Burbank label pressing. NOTE – Vinyl is in Fair condition, with a small crack in the middle that manages to play through, but with clicks. Cover has ring & edge wear, heavy wear on the spine, and bent corners.)

Fair

This is a grade we rarely use, as we try not to sell records in very bad condition, though in some rare cases we will list a record in such bad shape that it does not conform to the standards above. A "Fair" record will have enough marks or significant flaws that it does not even qualify as "Good", but is a copy you might consider for playing, if you're willing to put up with noise and/or flaws. An example might be a recording with surface noise so heavy that it is equal to the volume of the music. For records listed as "Fair", we will describe the extent of the condition in the comments.

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.

Aorta
Columbia, Late 60s. Very Good+ Gatefold
A lost heavy rock classic from the Dunwich Production team – recorded in Michigan, but with extra orchestral backing in Chicago – for an approach that gives the record a slightly pop quality that tempers the harder rock sound nicely.

Stone Poneys

Stone Poneys
Capitol, 1967. Very Good+
A wonderful record with a sweetly folksy feel – kind of a hipper California take on some of the more familiar pop-folk styles of the earlier part of the 60s – stripped-down a bit, and given a rougher, almost country-inspired take at times. Ronstadt's vocals are wonderful, but ... LP, Vinyl record album
