Sky 2

LP (Item 591662) Arista, 1980 — Condition: Near Mint-
2LP Gatefold
Originally: 14.99
The big second album from Sky – a record that's twice as long as the first, and which gives the group even more room for instrumental explorations! As before, the guitar sounds here are both acoustic and electric – played by both John Williams, the virtuoso musician with classical roots, and Kevin Peek, who's got more rock experience – and the group also features really strong keyboards from Francis Monkman, plus bass from the great Herbie Flowers, and thundering drums from Tristan Fry! The sound is a balance of fullness and space – much more so than other fusion records of this nature – and while Williams' solos sometimes have older elements in their phrasing, the overall sound is pretty progressive – in the best 70s mainstream way. Titles include "Fifo", "Sahara", "Dance Of The Little Fairies", "Ballet Volta", "Gavotte & Variations", "El Cielo", and "Tristan's Magic Garden".  © 1996-2024, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(NOTE – Mid 80s German pressing in a Japanese gatefold cover.)

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.

Funky Kings
Arista, 1976. Near Mint-
Not "funky" as in the world of funk and soul – but a nice little rock album with a nicely rootsy vibe – well-written songs, and a down-to-earth feel that's a nice change from some of the smoother groups of the time! These guys are tight, but never too slick – and have a ... LP, Vinyl record album

David Forman

David Forman
Arista, 1976. Near Mint-
David Forman almost looks like a 70s-era Brian Eno on the cover – but he's got a completely different sound overall – an honest, earnest singer/songwriter mode, and one that's quite down to earth, especially given the album's presentation on Arista Records in 1976! Forman wrote most of ... LP, Vinyl record album

How Men Are
Arista/Virgin, 1984. Very Good+
The last moment of greatness from Heaven 17 – and a set that continues the trend towards more soulful expression the group began with their previous record!
