Hard Attack

LP (Item 593892) Kama Sutra, 1972 — Condition: Sealed
Gatefold

A definite hard attack from Dust – a set that really lives up to its Frank Frazetta cover image at the best moments – but also has some surprising acoustic elements, too! Dust are way more than just the usual hard rock trio of the early 70s – as they mix in pedal steel and acoustic guitar with their fuzz and heavy drums – creating a complexity that you'd expect much more from a prog group, even though these guys have the tighter focus of some of the fiercest power trios of their generation! The mix of modes is great, and really gives the songs some depth – with gentle vocals that offset the fiercer ones – and titles include "Pull Away/So Many Times", "Learning To Die", "All In All", "Ivory", "I Been Thinkin", "How Many Horses", and "Suicide".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Sealed

This is what it says, that the record is still held fast in shrink-wrap. We tend to be pretty suspicious about these things, so if the shrink-wrap doesn't look original, or if the record seems to have undergone some damage over time, we'll probably take it out of the wrapper to ensure that it's in good shape — which is why we don't have more of these. In some cases the shrink-wrap may be torn in spots, but if it's not possible the record has been taken out and played, the record will still qualify as "Sealed".

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.

Kama Sutra, 1967. Near Mint-
The soundtrack to Francis Ford Coppola's first film, and a surprisingly groovy batch of tracks!

Kama Sutra, 1966. Very Good+
The most understated album by the Lovin Spoonful – and possibly their best work ever! It's really a showcase for leader/chief songwriter John Sebastian and proto-country rock guitarist Zal Yanovsky. "Summer In The City" is the one that buttered the group's bread for the next ... LP, Vinyl record album

Here it is – the first Spoonful LP in all its sunny, groovy glory – and the sum is so much more than just a great single! Like the Byrds, the group is built on traditionally structured back-porch melodies. In the case of the Spoonful, jug band influences provide the core rhythmic ... LP, Vinyl record album

Innocence
Kama Sutra, 1967. Near Mint-
The only album from The Innocence – a cool little group with a really playful pop feel – one that's definitely cut from the same cloth as other Kama Sutra groups from the Lovin Spoonful generation! The core sounds here are from the duo of Pete Anders and Vinnie Poncia – who often ... LP, Vinyl record album

Excursions
Kama Sutra, 1967. Near Mint-
A rare full album from The Tradewinds – a wonderful harmony pop group with a Sunshine Pop feel! The Tradewinds have a style that's heavily in a Beach Boys mode – sunny California harmonies on the vocals, and a sort of post-Pet Sounds approach to songwriting – one that makes for ...

Okay, we'll admit it, this is not the sort of record you're going to buy to listen to all the way through, unless you're into 70s Christian rock, which it's not the most terrible example of. For the rest of you, it does have a monster funky drum break that's ripe for sampling! The cut's "The ... LP, Vinyl record album

One of the most electronic albums that Beaver & Krause ever recorded – a set that was issued as a Guide To Electronic Music, but which has a way more to offer than just a simple demonstration record!

Wild twanginess from this off-beat group that included Kev Hopper on bass and samples.

Too bad, but the records got some nice moments like "Charlton ... LP, Vinyl record album

Autoamerican
Chrysalis, 1980. Very Good+
The biggest sounding Blondie album by far – and a radical leap from New York new wave scene band to a wildly ambitious pop pastiche machine! The band always had a fearless way of filtering far-reaching pop sounds into their material, even when they were still on the CBGBs scene, and while ... LP, Vinyl record album
