Innocence

LP (Item 597713) Kama Sutra, 1967 — Condition: Very Good

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 use relatively spare instrumentation, almost as if they're building the tunes up from scratch in the studio, demo-style – while still layering some great vocals over the top. Jimmy Wisner did a good deal of the arrangements here, but he still preserves the personal feel of the songs – a kind of simple, joyful pop that almost reminds us of Roger Nichols & The Small Circle Of Friends on A&M! Titles include "All I Ask", "Someone Got Caught In My Eye", "There's Got To Be A Word", "I Don't Wanna Be Around You", "It's Not Gonna Take Too Long", "Whence I Make Thee Mine", and "A Lifetime Lovin You".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.

Lovin Spoonful

Do You Believe In Magic
Kama Sutra, 1965. Very Good+
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

Tradewinds

Excursions
Kama Sutra, 1967. Very Good-
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 ...

David Bowie

Scary Monsters
RCA, 1980. Sealed
David Bowie back in costume at the end of the 70s – but informed enough from his Berlin trilogy that he's coming at things quite differently here! The album's a great summation of the sounds on Low, Heroes, and Lodger – taken almost back to some Ziggy Stardust and Space Oddity ... LP, Vinyl record album

Beach Boys

Smiley Smile
Brother/Capitol, 1967. Very Good+
The slimmed-down, single LP effort that Capitol issued after the collapse of the legendary Smile album – and a pretty sublime set nonetheless! Sure, some might argue that you can't enjoy Brian Wilson's genius until you've listened to 20 bootlegs of the sessions with dozens of takes on the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Beach Boys

In Concert
Brother, 1973. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
A hipper concert than you might expect – recorded in 1973, and originally issued as a double LP. The band by this point includes Blondie Chaplin and the enigmatic Ricky Fataar – and in some way, the songs have a sincerity that's lacking from a lot of the studio albums at the same time. ... LP, Vinyl record album
Capitol, 1979. Very Good+
One of the greatest power pop albums ever recorded – a blistering batch of tight little rocking tunes that took pop music back to basics at the end of the 70s! The group have an almost Beatles-esque flair for the short catchy tune – but have also pumped up things nicely with a smoothly ... LP, Vinyl record album

Leonard Cohen

Songs Of Love & Hate
Columbia, 1971. Very Good+
One of the more heavily brooding albums ever cut by Leonard Cohen – and also one of the best – the iconic Songs Of Love And Hate from 1971! Cohen's aptly titled third LP, with the nice spare approach to production that most of his early work had, even more stripped down, with voice and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Led Zeppelin

Song Remains The Same
Swan Song/Atlantic, 1976. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
Arguably one of the greatest double-live albums of the classic rock generation – filled with extra long takes of Led Zep classics, most of which diverge very strongly from their studio versions! The real highlight here is the set's classic "Moby Dick", which features one of the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Flying Burrito Brothers

Burrito Deluxe
A&M, 1970. Very Good+
Benchmark cosmic American music from The Flying Burrito Brothers! Burrito Deluxe is more of a group effort from the Burritos – Gram Parsons is purported to have held the reins on the first record – a slightly less trippy album but no less heart-tuggingly strong. The record also has ... LP, Vinyl record album
