Hard Attack

LP (Item 593892) Kama Sutra, 1972 — Condition: Very Good-

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.

Very Good - (minus)

  • Vinyl may be dirty, and can lack a fair amount of luster.
  • Vinyl can have a number of marks, either in clusters or smaller amounts, but deeper.
  • This is the kind of record that you'd buy to play, but not because it looked that great. Still, the flaws should be mostly cosmetic, with nothing too deep that would ruin the overall record.
  • Examples include a record that has been kept for a while in a cover without the paper sleeve, or heavily played by a previous owner and has some marks across the surface. The record should play okay, though probably with surface noise.

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.

Cosmic Furnace
Atlantic, 1973. Near Mint-
A very nice spacey album of stoner electronics! The general feel is similar to early Tangerine Dream – with lots of bubbling passages going on and on and on – but Powell churns it up nicely at times, and gets a groove that's almost a bit funky at times. Titles include "Ictus" ... LP, Vinyl record album
