Never For Ever

LP (Item 577931) EMI, 1980 — Condition: Near Mint-
Gatefold

Heavenly sounds from Kate Bush – a record that has her continuing to refine her style, and find a place for her music that's completely without reference to any other scene! There's definitely a few catchy numbers in the mix, but Kate's so confident, she hardly needs to try for commercial acclaim – as it's apparent that she's already found that audience that would stay faithful for years! Her voice seems even better than before – able to run up and down its amazing range, but without ever sounding like she's showing off – and always for a reason, to illuminate the tunes as she moves through octaves – in ways that few other singers can do, save for maybe Minnie Riperton at her best. Titles include the hit "Babooshka", plus "Army Dreamer", "Breathing", "All We Ever Look For", "Egypt", "The Wedding List", "Violin", and "Delius".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(UK 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.
