Dire Straits

LP (Item 597488) Warner, 1978 — Condition: Near Mint-

Titles include "Sultans Of Swing", "Down To The Waterline", "Wild West End", "In The Gallery", "Lions", "Southbound Again", and "Six Blade Knife".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(US pressing, including the printed inner sleeve. Cover has a very small tear in the opening and very lightly bent corners.)

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.

Little Feat's third, and maybe best their album – the adventurous country rock, soul, boogie blender Feats Don't Fail Me Know!

Dick Heckstall-Smith

Story Ended
Warner, 1972. Near Mint- Gatefold
A landmark album in the evolution of British jazz rock – the first solo album by Dick Heckstall-Smith, recorded right after the breakup of his famous group Colusseum! The album's got a similar feel to the best work of Colusseum – a blend of rock lyrics and heavily jazz-based phrasing, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gang Of Four

Gang Of Four EP
Warner, 1980. Near Mint-
This one's actually the group's sort of second album – at least in the US – with 4 tracks that really follow nicely in the feel of Entertainment! Tracks were recorded between 1978 and 1980 – and all have a nice raw guitar sound. Includes the massive "Armalite Rifle", ... LP, Vinyl record album

B-52s

Wild Planet
Warner, 1980. Near Mint-
They may look goofy on the cover, but the young B-52s are incredible here – working with this spare sense of power that almost makes us think that we didn't need most of what happened in rock and roll during the 70s – given the way these guys can distill a mood or moment down to just a ...

Badfinger

Wish You Were Here
Warner, 1974. Near Mint-
The kind of overlooked, understated gem that should have put Badfinger at the top of the charts in the mid 70s – a record of impeccable songwriting, really great production, and a refinement of an earlier musical ideal that really points the way forward – all while avoiding most of the ... LP, Vinyl record album
EMI (UK), 1967. Near Mint-
A brilliant bit of psychedelia – still as fresh today as it was many decades back – and the crowning achievement of Pink Floyd during the early Syd Barrett years! The album's got all the best elements of the group firmly in place – the penchant for long-jamming tracks that still ... LP, Vinyl record album

Human League

Fascination
Virgin/A&M, 1981/1982. Near Mint-
Some great early 80s pop groove material from Human League – less of the colder synth of before, and more of the warmer soul-based sound that worked surprisingly well for the group! The EP features a number of tracks that fell between the LPs – including the extended version of their ... LP, Vinyl record album

Rolling Stones

Undercover
Rolling Stones, 1983. Near Mint-
A bit of an odd album, but one that showed the Stones were alive and kicking in the 80s. Taking off from the Stones' take on disco from their previous couple of LPs but keeping a nice rough edge on the proceedings, Jagger and Richards turned in what's probably their last great studio LP. 10 ...
