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.
(180 gram Akarma pressing.)

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.

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!

A rare US release by one of Japan's hippest combos of the 70s – The Sadistic Mika Band, a group who'd absorbed a heck of a lot of prog rock styles, but who also had a weird sound all its own. The group were "discovered" by Roxy Music – who had a big hand in bringing them to ... LP, Vinyl record album

A pretty great album of tripped-out funky jazz and instrumental tunes – played with a range of odd instruments (Golden Throat, universal pedal, ring modulator, phase shifter) and studio effects, going for an approach that shows the wilder sounds of the instruments, while still grooving in a ...

Early genius from Neil – and the record that always makes us say "why couldn't he have stayed this way?"

Atco, 1979. Near Mint-
A brilliant little comeback album for Roxy Music – their first album in 4 years after Siren, and a well-done departure that takes off from older records without losing any of their greatness!
