Beach Boys 69 – Live In London

LP (Item 608120) Capitol, 1969 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


The Beach Boys live in London at the end of the 60s – working here without Brian Wilson in tow – as indicated by a postcard addressed to him back home, displayed prominently on the front cover! Despite Brian's absence, the group's still in fine form – harmonically tight, and returning to a number of earlier themes in their songs – singing in front of what must clearly be a hugely enthusiastic crowd, if we're to judge by the applause. The concert was something of a reminder to the group that they had plenty to offer, even through Brian's ups and downs – and in a way, it really set the stage for the reputation and touring the group would do strongly in the 70s. Titles include "Bluebirds Over The Mountain", "God Only Knows", "Their Hearts Were Full Of Spring", "Aren't You Glad", "Do It Again", "Wake The World", "Darlin", and "Wouldn't It Be Nice".

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.

Used Vinyl Grades

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, please note that all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:

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.

Beach Boys karaoke – or kind of a "music minus one" album – but whatever the case, the set's a pretty unique outing in the field of 60s pop! The record's exactly what the title promises – a "stack o tracks" from the group's earlier records – rhythm parts ... LP, Vinyl record album

An excellent album of jazzy rock material from Detroit!
